Been Awhile!

I just don't seem to be good with keeping track of myself on paper! I go for days like for instance, I havent been on here since Wednesday almost 2 weeks ago now. Oh well, perhaps I'll improve with time, but don't hold me to it.
So since that post where I said I felt really miserable, that following Sunday was even worse, I had to turn down double time at work, which took everything in me to do, as I could have really used the money.
That Monday I went to the doctor, gotta shot and a zpack along with some cough medicine and by the next day I was about 75% better feeling already.
Work has been just that, and we still don't know anything about what is really going on around here. But we did start doing a CARE for the 2 mode packs I was glad about that. Didn't get offered any o.t. this weekend, over course when I'm back to normal its not to be found.
My husband went to Georgia on Friday to pick up a log splitter he won on an auction on ebay. He seems to really like it. He has finished all of our wood for the moment, and has taken it over to allow my dad to use it for awhile.
I spent most of my weekend in front of the computer which is always something I like to do.
I also learned this weekend that a guy I basically grew up with, James King, died of a massive heart attack at the age of 40 on the 6th of this month. That was a real shock. Hope his family is holding up ok.
Now here it is Monday and all I've done today is a few things around the house like laundry and now I'm at work.
Oh, yeah, my stomach is really really hurting right now and making all kinds of gurgling sounds. Awful! I'm hoping and praying it goes away soon. I think I may be starting to fall apart. LOL!
Hopefully I'll do better this weekend on the blogging, we'll see!

Can I please?

Just roll over and go back to sleep? I have been sick for the past few days now, but today I am just miserable. I slept pretty much all morning until it was time to crawl out of bed and come to work. Only thing is, when I got here, a few people told me I looked really pale. I think its a sinus infection, as I get them pretty regular. First thing Monday I will be phoning the doctor to hopefully get something to make it go away fast!
While at work I received a phone call from my son saying that he had accidently shut Chloe's tail in the door. I wanted to cry for her right then and there. I do hope its ok, am anxious to get home and give her proper cuddles and kisses. He did say she screamed really loud, the poor baby!
Hoping I feel a bit better tomorrow.

Nothing much

To report on that is. The weather has been really humid, and I don't like it at all. I cut the grass the other day, and it was really hot out. I enjoy cutting the grass though. This is my thinking time, or I listen to my audio books, but I have to learn how to do this zero turn around radius thing without spinning my back tire, which the hubby kindly pointed out. It makes a mark in the grass, maybe next time I'll be a pro at it. I have never noticed and of course can't see the tire doing this when I'm riding, but I had him show me, and sure enough that is just what is happening.
My husband and son have been having some issues with life in general in our house. We had a long family discussion this past weekend, and I hope and pray they are both able to "put forth the extra effort" to see eye to eye on these issues. There is nothing worse I don't think than to have problems in the family and have to deal with tension. I don't like it, and its really bothering me, so I have fingers crossed that things will roll smoothly from here on out.

Sunday was my Birthday!

Yes, I'm officially 39 years old now, wow one more year and I'll be 40? I can remember when I was counting down days to turn 18, oh if we could turn back time, how lovely that would be.
I hope to change a few things in my life over this next year, so that going into my forties, I can say that I am truly content in where I am in my life.

Hair Cut and Color

Today was the day for a cut and color! 5 weeks and I'm about ready to grab scissors and start whacking it myself. I love the stylist though, so I um...patiently waited and let her do the honors.

Weekend is over

Yep, its back to work I go. The hubby bought a lottery ticket Saturday, but alas, it must have been the wrong one! Darn I hate when that happens.
Let me tell you about my weekend, there is not alot to tell. I think I'm very content just staying at home these days, have I turned into a grown up afterall? Sometimes I wonder.
Saturday, I went to visit a friend. Had a nice visit, but the road trip there was awful. There was construction going on, and a new mall opening in the area, and I hate, and I really mean HATE traffic! But there I sat! For way too long. After I got back home, I knew I wasn't going back out the rest of the day.
The dogs were great this weekend, although I think the heat was a bit much. Most of them pretty much stayed inside most of the day. Cojak seemed to be the only one wanting to brave the heat and lay in the garage for awhile.
Sunday was more of the same heat-wise. I did venture out long enough to find a chocker collar for Cojak, we are going to leave that on at all times in hopes that if the boys go at it again, we have something to grab onto when trying to get them apart.
Other than doing some cleaning in the air conditioned house and playing on the computer that is how I spent my weekend.

He's Back!

Not alot to report again. My life is getting rather boring, I'm thinking perhaps I should do something to liven it up! Stay tuned to see if anything becomes of this thought. Ha!
Anyway, Jonathan got home this morning from his grandparents house. He said he had a really great time, and of course wants to go back. I missed him, but glad he was able to get away for a minute. Now, if one of the job places he's applied for would call. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed for that.
Gotta get ready for work.

Today is my Son's and my Dad's Birthday

Yes, my son turns 20 years old today! Boy, does that make me feel old! Hope he has a good day, he and my dad try to celebrate their birthday together each year when they can. They were going out for dinner.

Rain, Rain Go Away!

This is now my third and final no matter what attempt to write this update. The other times it keeps saying some kind of error and hit back on server, which I do and it takes the whole thing away! Anyway, I wake up this morning about 6am to lots of thunder, lightning, and huge amounts of rain! Downstairs the pei thinking its time to go out for their morning tee head for the door. I open it, and Chloe makes a mad dash, with Mariah right behind. I do believe Mariah would follow Chloe off of a cliff. They very quickly figure out this is not what they had planned and dove back through the door. None of the others even attempt it. We ended up having to wait over an hour before it slacked up enough that they would brave the elements. Not a fun morning or day for them to say the least.
LB has two doctor appts today, hoping for all good news in those areas.
The power has been out at the house now for awhile, and how I hate that.
Tomorrow is Jonathan and my dad's birthday, and he is still over there so I'll stop by to see them tomorrow before I come to work. Hard to believe my son is turning 20, now if he only acted that age! LOL!

Must Return to Work

I got quite a bit done around the house this weekend. Seems like I'd get more done if I did more through the week. Hehe!
Had a nice relaxing, and cleaning weekend at home.
Jonathan called to report he's having a great time with his grandparents. He and my dad will be having a birthday this week. The 5th is their bday. He's planning to come home on Thursday I think. He's been helping my dad with getting the place ready to lay tile down in their kitchen and dining room.
Now its Monday and I have to return to work. Must make money to pay the bills.
LB has been having a rough time with his leg and foot, I hope it gets better, it really drives him crazy, and of course I feel helpless cause there is nothing that I can do.

Not much to report here in the Caldwell Corner. I did alot of resting, and playing on the computer today. Always a nice thing to do. Jonathan left this afternoon to go spend some of the week with his grandparents. He was really excited about going to stay with them for awhile.
Dogs have all been pretty good today, they too have done alot of laying around. Just one of those days.

About Me

Jefferson Township, Ohio, United States
This is a blog about my life. Nothing fancy and nothing of consistency very much either, as I tend on occassion to forget to write on here. Anyway, I'm a married woman of 38. My son Jonathan just graduated from high school and now in the process of figuring out what to do next. We have 6 Chinese Shar Pei, and that pretty much sums me up.
