Icky Week

What an ICKY week this has turned out to be... Changed over from cable to DirectTV and again they are seeing that stupid sign on our foreheads that reads "Suckers". Who would have thought to ask if we will get our local television channels. (Of course not, not without paying an extra fee for a box and hookup).
O M G is it any wonder why the "Government" has to get involved with all this stuff when there are suckers like me ... "hitting myself on my head" Why of course you, the consumer, must ask if you will get your local television channels. WHAT is wrong with me?? Then the cable company tells me when I cancel their service that I have a modem from back in 2006 when I changed my internet service over to DSL...
Are you kidding or what? I paid over $100.00 at Best Buy to get hooked up with a cable company that went "DEFUNK" back in 2001 and now, Time Warner is telling me that I have a modem that I leased it from Adelphia and must give it to them, or they will charge me $50.00.
Now, wait one darn minute. I did not ask for Time Warner, and when I switched over to DSL in 2006, they should have requested it. Another question, did Time Warner purchase Adelphia, or were they just assigned Adelphia's customers?
I will be happy to give them the stupid out-dated modem, but I will give it to them WHEN I find it and if they charge me $50.00 for it, if I don't find it within a certain timeframe, then they will get that money over my dead BODY!!! It is as plain and simple as that.
Then I get in here to my blog, and my feedit tells me that I am from "Union City" What? That is over 30 miles away from my current location almost in another county.... What is going on?
I am soooo confused! Gotta go now!
We are doing a day trip to pick up my new "Saddle stool". Dear S-I-L is going with us but we cannot leave until DH does HIS errands first which are always move important than anything anyone elses wants. Am I raging today? I certainly looks like it.
Weatherwise, we are finally getting some summer temperatures, although it rains almost every other day. I'm waiting for at least some of that so called "Global Warming".
Hey, y'all have a fabulous day! I'm going to try... And I'm going to try not to spend too much money at the Quilt shop! :p

it really has been some week. I finally got DH and granddaughter to help me paint the kitchen. DH is a collector and confirmed pack rat as am I, so things just kind of get moved from one place to another. So this month I decided that even though I cannot do much physically, I will start to delegate tasks to him and recruit my lovely granddaughter when ever I can to help me get this house in order before I crock and then they will have to do it all by themselves lol!
Tons of other things going on including excited about finally getting some summer weather.
We also are signing up for "The Angelfood Ministries" locally. Also have gotten DH stepmother and stepsisters to sign up. Not only is it a worthy cause, but when everyone is on fixed income I can see how hard it is to make ends meet. Mom Millie, really will like it as the box she ordered are meals that are all ready prepared and as she needs a walker to get around, having her lunch already prepared will be wonderful.
I like the fact that there really isn't too much food as we tend to buy too much and then so much goes to waste or spoils before we get to it. We sign up today and told DGD that she and her college roommate should also as it will be less expensive for them and the two of them could eat better for less and help out the ministry also.
Today is sign up day, and after I take DIL and GS to swimming, DH and I will go down and get signed up for this month.
Today is also 'Home Blessing' day. That is a general house cleaning, hopefully I can get that done before I go for the swimming class. And maybe I can make a couple of new cards today. I have been busy appliqueing a table top so I haven't did any new cards. It is fast approaching the end of August, duh and time to start thinking about the Fall and then Winter coming upon the year flies by fast.
Someone once told me that I should keep a journal, and not ever publish it because it would be boring, ah ha... he hit the nail on the head with that one yeah!! Gerry!
Gotta go now... enjoy Willie and have a Great Weekend End!

As of late....

have been so very busy that I've not even had a chance to sit here and think, let alone, write.
All this damp cool weather has really taken a hold on me and if I ever have been depressed this most certainly is the year. Little sunshine, and lots of rain. As I look out now, it has become quite overcast and although it is almost 7:45 there should still be a bit of sunshine around. OH NO!
Everyone has been in a dither about all the bad economic news, cash for clunkers, health care overhaul and etc. It isn't very nice for many folks around this area or for that matter of fact around the country. Too bad we entrust our livelihood to politicians who main concern is condemnation of their country and employers (U.S. Citizens) rather than thankfully making sure that they follow the laws of the land. Then of course there is many of them getting very, very rich on the "Fear" that our beautiful planet cannot take care of itself and we are destroying it with a made up story of "Global Warming". Even if some do not believe a a superior being, they most certainly should not be so arrogant to think that this beautiful planet could not take care of itself. They just need to look at the hurricanes, and earthquakes to see that it most certainly can.
Tonight's dinner hasn't even been started so I really have got to go and get something going. I bought some wonderful wraps, so I think I should go and wrap up some turkey slices with perhaps a bit of honey mustard sauce or maybe even some blue cheese dressing... yummy!
