I was gonna make an entry with some tags, but after reading a few journals this morning I decided against it. I wasn't on computer yesterday, except for morning, and stayed off of computer last night, due to storms and American Idol was on. I cannot believe Melinda Dolittle was dismissed. That girl had an awesome voice. She was far more talented then Blake. I was so upset, I cried. Jim thought I was absolutely nuts, lol. I told him if that Blake wins over Jordin, then that's it. I won't ever watch the show again, and I mean that too. I am just so mad over Melinda being gone, grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Well, yesterday was not a good day for me. My body ached horribly, more so then it ever has. My right arm feels useless, and aches very bad. My legs and feet have been swelling alot. Guess I need to start taking water pills again. I have some, I just don't like taking them and peeing 900 times a day, lol. So, yesterday, I took a break. I shut down computer, so I wouldn't be tempted and walked around more then sat up on couch, so feet and legs were elevated. I was able to get some mail sent out. One was a 4 page letter to my brother Paul, the other was Virginia Tech graphics to my future SIL Nancy. She and her family knew a few of the people who were killed on that tragic day. So, I printed her out some memorium pictures on photo paper, so she could have them.

Jim and I had a long talk. We have decided we don't want to rent. We are going to have a credit report done, see what is on there, and maybe go to one of those debt consolidaters and see about getting our credit report cleared. My daughter Emma has a name of a lawyer/accountant who can get anyone a loan to buy a home no matter what kind of credit report they have. So we're going to check it out. We have to save our money from now on. I will keep it in money market account where it collects more interest then savings and checking. Well, I would rather buy a house then rent one anyways. Jim said for now, we're going to change the apartment around. Make livingroom the bedroom, and visa versa. The livingroom now is alot bigger then bedroom, so if we change them around he can partition the room and make it into 2 bedrooms. We're going out this weekend and getting Rebecca a new bed. The one I put in an entry. The rest of the furniture I am putting on layaway at Kmart. This Spongebob toddler bed is just too small. We're giving the toddler bed to Daniel. He loves it. So this weekend is going to be a busy one for us. Not only does furniture have to be moved, so does phone lines, cable lines, etc. Jim can do it though. He's the one who ran phone lines from kitchen and cable line in here.

My sister Lucy's friend is coming here monday with his truck. I am giving Lucy my washer and dryer. Why let it sit any longer with no one using it. And since she lost hers in the fire, she can definately use mine. So, it is hers come monday. I am also giving her a floor lamp, and anything else I want to get rid of. I have a ton of toys that are going to her for the grandkids she has there also. Blankets, etc. Hope this guy has a big truck, lol. Emma is going through her things also to give to Lucy. Speaking of Lucy, she became a grandmom again the other day. Her daughter Sharon had a baby girl, 7lbs 11oz and 19 inches long. I'll get a pic soon to show you. Lucy said she is absolutely beautiful. She was born 4 hours after Mother's Day ended. Congrats to Sharon and Ricky and their new baby. They have a son who is a big brother now. Lucys oldest daughter Donna is 14 weeks pregnant. She is also hoping for a girl. But she said he or she will be loved just the same.

Ok, so starting tomorrow, I am not going to be on computer as much. I'm taking a week and doing things around here that need to be done. I will keep my alerts on, but will get to them at night. In the mornings I will check email for personal emails, during the day it is cleaning, organizing, and sorting and even painting, then at night I'll try to catch up on journals. So, if I don't get to your entries right away, don't worry I will eventually. I am going to quit all the graphics groups I am in. It is just too much for me. Everyday I have over 300 emails, and lately I have just been deleting them. I feel bad doing that, but it's just too much for me. My photo bucket account is full, so now what do I do? Make another account? I already have 2 photo bucket accounts.

Today my plan is to clean out hall closet. There's so much crap in there. I even forgot what is in there, lol. Then I want to tackle the kitchen closet. There's alot in there I want to get rid of also. Tomorrow it'll be the livingroom walk-in closet. That one will take me all day. It is packed and I mean packed. I'll take a picture of it before I unpack it, so you can see what I am talking about.

Well, I guess that is about it for now. I hope your all enjoying your week. And I hope AOHELL fixes whatever they are doing soon.

LOVE TO ALL...................CINDY


  1. congrats to lucy for the new grand baby!  i dont watch american idol wel i do but i have missed the whole season so far...ggrrr i hoped that they would keep melinda in i heard a lot about the contestants on the radio.

    hope all is well

    Sounds like you have a busy week ahead.
    I only make entries 3 times a week now, quit the daily back several mos ago. I think 2 or 3 times is fine.
    Hate to see you leave our group, but understand. I'm in 5 5 groups & on staff at 3, the mail can get overwhelming at times.
    Gee your photobucket is full? And you have 2? I only have 1 there but I have 20 sub albums in it with 300-500 tags in each far I still have room for more. LOL Need to go thru & clean them out & delete a lot, just dreading doing it.
    Hope you have a beautiful day.
    Hugs, Sugar

  3. You sure are going to be  busy. Take it slow, though, ok? Dont overdo it.
    I hope you feel better.

  4. Sounds like you have a LOT of projects to work on.  I'll miss ya....but write an entry when you can!  
    Love to you...

  5. Have a great Thursday!

  6. Hope your cleaning spree and changes brighten your days ahead. Don't over due it. Will look forward to your entries when you feel up to entering one! Have a wonderful day!

  7. i hope you feel better soon...keep those legs rested!
    goodluck this weekend...!
    i hope that you have a good day
    ps how many photos does photobucket hold i am surprized mine isnt full yet and i have the free version...if you dont want to pay just make an email account with yahoo and registed a new photobucket...might as well right? lol
    i cannot stand paying for something that you can have for free, haha

  8. Cindy, I hope you feel better soon, I'll miss you but enjoy your break, Hugs Lisa

  9. Wow!  You have ALOT of graphics to fill photobucket.  Hope you feel better!

  10. I almost forgot who's journal I was reading, Cindy.  I thought for a minute I had somehow floated over to Jeanne's (Candlejmr).  Why?  Because of how busy you are! lol  You sound like her, when she writes an entry.  Busy busy busy! lol  
    Good luck with getting a loan to buy a house.  It's the only way to go.  Renting is okay, but it's just sad that you are throwing that money out the window every month, when it could be going towards building equity for you!

  15. I was the same way about Melinda getting the boot last night. Ijust didn't want my girl Jordin to go. She has to win. Blake is OK...for teeny boppers .LOLOL
    Sounds like you are going to be so busy. I need to clean out this house so though we were moving. LOL It sure would help.
    Don't overdo.

  16. I have been trying to add an entry myself and can't. Oh well soon hopefully.  Good luck on all your work ahead just don't over do! xoxBarbara

  17. i LOVED Melinda but i can not stand Jordin one bit and if SHE wins i may never watch it again. Frustrating show.
    I hope you are not walking away from J Land. Good luck on buying and fixing your credit. It can be a scary process. Congrats to your sister Lucy.
