Well it started out O.K…..sorta..

Woke up late and jerked DS10 out of a sound sleep, shoved him into his school clothes, threw his lunch together,and pushed him out the door to the bus in record time….he wasn’t impressed.
Then:
Had my 1st physical in …..lets just say it’s been a while I got lots of prizes! A script for antibiotics for a respiratory infection, an order for blood work & a chest Xray, 3 referrals to 3 specialists, a cortizone shot in the palm of my hand for my trigger finger (with a lovely bruise for proof!), and a slap on the hand for… for being a typical nurse and ignoring all of the teaching we do with our patients regarding monthly & yearly exams..
Then I went to brunch with my Partner In Crime (see post below), came home & started to decontaminate the disaster area that is my house….thats when it all went to hell.
The plumber just left.
Apparently Murphy has attacked with a vengence. The repairs can’t be tackled until tomorrow morning. Something to do with a clog in the main house drain to the sewer, an old cast iron cover that has to be cut off, and a large, heavy, boring machine…..I kinda zoned after I heard him tell Hubby $450..ish…

Welcome to the family

I’m Carl in whatever the mood hits me OK—You’ll figure it out real fast if you haven’t already. Dh, ds (an adult) and I live in ne OK and have been working the plan since 2009 with some major Murphy hits along the way. But we keep on keeping on. Ds got debt free except for his mortgage size Sallie Mae in 2011. If all goes according to plan dh and I have about 2 -3 more years to go to be totally debt free including the house. It’s a long boring story that included both men being unemployed for 18 months. This blog saw us through and I shall always be most thankful for it.
I am the official dispenser of “Pollyanna Pills.” Think Disney movie.
I blog, am writing a book or six (did I say that out loud—no one get excited YET). For about 8 years I mystery shopped and merchandised full time. I’ve recently retired from that job. Speaking of retirement, dh is 65 and I’m 62 our goal is to be retired soon and travel the USA in our fifth wheel.

We live on 90 wooded acres with our flock of geese, ducks, chickens and one peacock. Our furry critters are two working farm dogs and six (I know that’s insane) house cats.

Scratch cook, organic gardener, food preserver, seamstress, yadda, yadda, yadda. Can you guys tell I’m tired tonight? LOL!

Anyway, jump right in and join the madness.
