Hello, everyone. I am feeling alot better today. I want to thank everyone for your wonderful comments and advice with my last entry. You guys are just awesome, and really know how to make a person feel better about themself.
Well, let's see, what have I been up too the past 48 hours? I got caught up on journals. I have about 10 left, but those are from last night and this morning. I did have 161 journal alerts, lol. Not complaining though. I love reading about all of you. Your all like my family and when your sad I am sad, when your hurt I am hurt.
I left Rebecca home from school yesterday. I didn't want to chance driving the van with the brake making so much noise. Jim finally replaced the brake on the drivers side last night. He said there was nothing left on the brake pad, the caliper is fine, but we need a new rotor. It is all chewed up inside and will never pass inspection. So it looks like we'll be investing in a rotor real soon. Jim's outside right now replacing the other side's brakes. He knows I complain if something is wrong with our vehicle and he had better fix it, lol.
So Rebecca and I stayed home, and colored, cleaned up her toys, watched a movie about a mountain man and his white wolf. She enjoyed the movie as much as I did, or maybe it was just the popcorn I made, lol. Later my daughter Emma came over and took me grocery shopping. This time we went to SHOPRITE, instead of ACME or SHOPNBAG. I spent 161.00, yikes, lol. But my shopping cart was filled to the top. I can't say much for their produce prices, they are expensive. But their cold cuts, cheap. At ACME I pay 8.99 a pound for Virginia Baked Ham, but at SHOPRITE it was 5.99 a pound. It is Rebecca's favorite ham. Wheat bread, 99 cents a loaf. The best deal was the London Broils. I bought 2 of them. One for 2.64, and the other for 3.18. Another bargain which is Rebecca's favorite is Campbell's Tomato soup, 5 can's for 2.00, and Cheerios for 1.99 a box. Both are packaged in Breast Cancer awareness colors. Part of the sale is given towards the research to find a cure. I'll take a picture of the Tomato soup labels and post it. The labels are pink instead of red. So cute. I usedEmma's shoprite discount card, and with her purchases and mine, we got a certificate for a free turkey or ham. So we will get a ham, to go along with a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. I always make a turkey and a ham. And all the fixings to go with both. Same thing for christmas too.
When we got outside to go to the car, the sky opened up and it started pouring. Emma went and got the car and brought it up to the store so we could load up our groceries. She helped me carry them all upstairs and then she left to go home. Rebecca helped me put away the groceries. She knows exactly where everything goes too, lol. I do the freezer items though. Then I fixed her a sandwich and she had some grapes and a glass of milk, watched a little tv and into her jammies and bed she went. Around 9:pm we were hit with strong winds and heavy downpours of rain with a little lightning too.
We had to use the airconditioning last night. It was so hot and humid. 85 degree's in my apartment. I cannot sleep when it is that hot in my bedroom. I would not be able to breathe. Storm must of knocked out verizon cause I lost my DSL last night. It just would not reconnect. So I shut down the computer, and turned it back on 5:30 this morning and it was working again.
I watched 2 great shows last night. The first was Lisa Williams show. Wow, is she good. I would love to talk to her about my Dad and maybe find out what really happened in his death. My gut still tells me he was murdered and that an accidental drowning was not what really happened. I forgot the name of the second show, but it was also on Lifetime, and was 4 Psychics who had to guess different things, such as who was an excon, what happened in a hotel room and who's dog belonged to who. I loved both those shows. I will definately be watching them again. CSI on thursday night was awesome. She said yes, I was so happy I wanted to email Lisa and tell her, but didn't want to spoil her hearing it on the show. LOL.
Today I am feeling happy. At around noon my baby granddaughter Adrianna is coming over and staying for a few hours. I love cuddling her in my arms. Jim is happy she's coming over. He doesn't get to see her as much. Rebecca asked if she could hold the baby again. I will let her and I'll take pictures of her holding the baby. She really loves her new niece.
Jim just left to go to Target. He is picking up a black ink cartridge for my printer, batteries for my camera and computer mouse, and a big box of crayola crayons for Rebecca. This kid goes through crayons like water, jeez.
Well, I better get my butt up and get dressed. I'm still in my jammies, lol. I want to clean my kitchen before the baby gets here. I hope you all have a great weekend.
Just wanted also to ask for prayers for those here in need of them. Sugar, that her mattress comes soon. Jeannette and her grandson Daniel, for good health, Angie for her burnt buns and that it isn't so painful when she sits down, lol. Jeanne for her foot and her daughter Kelly for her knee, and Lisa for her MS and the pain it is causing her. I know there are so many more in need of these prayers, and believe me I pray for everyone here in Jland every day.
I better go now. I am getting hungry, haven't had breakfast yet.
Love to all.............................
