Hey Guys

If I don't post for a little while its no worries, just that I feel irritable and sweary re all the DS stuff. Read an email tonight that makes me want to throw something thru a wall..............DS is in Pain. FACT. Yet they had the gall to send the email they did.Haven't responded . Why bother ?

Do you know I didn't swear before DS ? Now I swear like , well can't think what to compare it to, but I really swear. So Cross, so utterly sick of it all. Not asking for sympathy or hugs or anything just saying I am not in friendly forum place right now .

You lot remain utterly lovely and you also have many and varied problems of your own. I am in the state of mind where I am just angry at everything and everybody who makes it harde rand that doesn't make me a nice person to hang around.

Hello friends,

Ahhhh so nice to NOT be subbing today!! On the other hand, I am experiencing cold/flu symptoms (sore throat, headache, aching neck, cough, hoarse voice)... so this break from Subbing isn't as useful as it could be especially as all I want to do is watch TV wrapped in a blanket. I may muster the energy to go wash a much-needed batch of Norwex kitchen & bath towels.

I've attempted to build a small fire, it's merely smoldered until now, but I can hear the flames starting to roar a bit... it's not particularly cold outside at 38*F and sunny, however, today WOULD be a good day to "purge" the house and open all windows and get some sicky-germs out.

I drove Dd6 to Kindergarten, and on the way home I picked up neighbor 4 doors down to give her a ride, then we talked awhile (rather she kind of vented about her life and I listened, I think she'd needed to do that). It was nice chatting with her.

Hurley-the-dog broke his outdoor cable, rather he separated 2 pieces that were wired together, this morning. Oh lucky us!! Dh left this morning for Kansas & Oklahoma, he may be back Wednesday night, more likely on Thursday, so we'll all get to take turns walking H around the yard. *sighs* So not my idea of fun.

We got a little snow yesterday, about an inch, though the mountains got LOTS. We are due to get a bunch more starting tonight, and snowing solid until Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning.

Dinner tonight?? Not sure. Maybe I'll make soup with Lil-Smokies sausages.... or maybe I'll cook them on low in oven w/ bbq sauce, eat on rice or quinoa w/ veggies... less work for me.

Ugh I feel rotten, maybe I'll add a bunch more wood, open all the windows upstairs, get Norwex towels soaking, then wrap in y blanket and watch Merlin for 1-1/2 hours until time to get dd6 from school. I was going to read here, but it'll keep for later.

Am sending you cyber hugs anyhow! (((Rinty))) I'll pray for you too!

PS., When my problems get me down, I can swear like a Barbary pirate (or like I imagine one can).

Update - absolutely loved cross country skiing and snow shoeing today. Dh was great company and we used the punch pass so no money spent on recreation. Then came home and received a phone call asking if I would like to attend a free luncheon! Oh yes please!! This will make my no-spend month so much easier to take.

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year so in tradition I did some cleaning in preparation for it after all the earlier fun. Main bath and ensuite are now sparkling. Upstairs vacuumed. Downstairs is already in good shape. All bills to date paid off. So much easier to accomplish all these things once you have retired!

It's been nice and cold here today with spells of rain. I'm now home enjoying the coziness. I went to work today and found out I won part of a superbowl pool I participated in. I was so surprised because this does not usually happen to me. So now I am $100.00 richer. The person I split with got $400.00.

But....my 457 took a big hit :(. My 401K was unchanged. I have 2.5 years before I have to start taking minimum distributions so that should be enough time for my accounts to recover.

I have nothing lined up this week. If its going to be cold and rainy I would just as soon stay home and get things done around the house. I went to the store earlier to pick up what I couldn't on Saturday. So foodwise I am set for the month. I will get my Schwan's order and my veggie delivery on Wednesday.

I am going to go curl up and watch some TV. Perfect day for it.

Rinty, hugs to you ((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))

Just know if you need to vent we are here for you. You may not think you are the best company in the world right now, but sometimes the only thing that keeps me sane is to tell my frugal living friends about the issue. Dealing with people that should be there to help is so frustrating sometimes and you need someone that you can rant to helps cleanse the soul. Someday, these people are going to answer to a higher power than they are. My thoughts and prayers are with you sweet woman.
