Damn cat……so she had mats

LOTS of them, she doesn’t like me to comb her, so it shard.  I have an appt. set up every 3 months to groom her…but we had to shave her down this time and I am NOT upset at all, since she horked a hairball in my sandal right before we left.




Damn cat, had to wash my feet and sandal!!!!

Not sure why they left the tail, like a duster 🙂



This isn’t working right

I have to go to a traffic site I have and use that link to get to my wordpress site, very very frustrating!!!!

At least I have this work around!

So I help friends and family with their taxes

I used to get it done, but I am an accountant by nature, so I would take all my files to him, all nice neat with excel spreadsheet and he would give it back the way I gave it to him,

So I went to tax school to learn to do my own.  It was the same cost as doing my taxes, but now I do my own and help others.  I went again 4 years later when we needed to do some more complicated things, and as a refresher as taxes change every year.

So of course my SON is the one that waits til the LAST moment to get me all of his info.


I spent my bday morning going to the post office, at least it wasn’t packed, in and out under 30 min.  I think more and more people are e-filing.

Sigh…..I started his right after ours…he was unhappy he owed state but getting fed back.  That is what happens when you get a real job and start making money.

At least everyone is done and sent.

Trouble logging in…

Is anyone else having issues getting on?  I had to get here thru a link from another site of mine.  If I try to log in regular, it just gives me a “loading my sites” message, on and on and on….. nothing comes up.

Very annoying, because if you can’t log in, you can’t get to customer service and there are no phone numbers or emails to contact them directly that I can find.

This is why I haven’t posted lately…..aauugghh


Go Less Meat – no just Meatless on Monday

back in the “day” they used to say go “Meatless on Monday”.   While we all know going veggie only is good for the body and earth, there are a lot of people who like meat and won’t change.  Stop Judging, it only makes things worse.

I say, lets change the conversation, lets eat “less” meat per meal, this will save money, waistlines and the world.

I have posted quite a bit on reducing food waste and ways to reuse items “kitchen Mash-ups” to make new meals.

Here is an example, again, we got a bunch of chicken legs , we bbq’d them, but we had some left over.  So I filled a pot with water and threw them in it.  Now I have homemade broth, and a plate full of chicken, instead of 4 legs, which is maybe two meals, I have enough chicken to make, chicken soup/stew PLUS chicken salad, those two meals have become 8 and they are good and natural and FREE!  Plus lots of chicken stock!

So you don’t need to go meatless, just go Less Meat per meal!

Spoiled animals….

so while we were gone my son and his wife watched the animals….ha ha ha, hee ,  hee, hee

of course I send him a text asking how they are doing and here is his response “alive”, aauugghhh

then his wife sends me a text, “he is spoiling them” with a picture of them all covered up sleeping.

He is very unhappy he had to turn on the faucet to get the cat to drink 🙂

But everyone happy and healthy when we got home

Well, I have survived the flu from hell

OMG, that was awful, I can’t remember a more painful sickness then that!  And Ihad the flu shot.

At least we were able to go on our vaca to Maui, it was nice, still a little coughing, but other then that ok.

Saw some Sea Turtles, that was awesome!  So big, so cute.  We went on the Sub, went down 130 ft, saw bunch of fish, Eel, Shark and spotted Ray.  Pretty Nice Luau after sub.

It was nice but overcast so we didn’t use the sunblock we bought.

Yes it is expensive to eat, but try and hit the Happy Hours, then more reasonable, also go to grocery store for snacks and water, and if where you are staying offers breakfast, eat there.



OMG, just put me out of my misery

I have been fighting the flu since last Monday, I am losing, I feel like someone took a bat and just beat the living crap out of me, and then came back every hour and did it again.

This is just not right people, I have been sick before, but the body aches, never!

I have lost about 5 lbs, so this is the first day I could really eat, and I had a Micky D quarter pounder, and it was WONDERFUL!

Now just hoping I am over the worst and one to feeling better.
