Well it has been over 10 days since I posted anything , so I thought I would catch you up on my boring life.
First lets talk about my job or not job? I go in every Monday and catch up paperwork for the boys and clean my office. Our business is still in limbo and with only having 13 campers on the lot to sell the pickins are slim!!! We usually have about 250 campers on the lot!!! With no floor planner we can’t even buy campers to sell and it seems like the "Change" is not going to help our little business. It makes me so sad to go in and see inventory so low and the boys struggling to hang on and wishing the lending institutes would let go of some of that money the goverment gave them!!! I plan on retiring in January, but these are young men who put everything they had into this business and just a letter coming through the US mail from one of the biggest money markets in the world says we are cancelling all RV flooring!!! I wish I could tell you it’s going to be ok but being their bookkeeper I know better. I will be ok but it breaks my heart to know that my boss will have to start all over again after he worked so hard to build this business. Maybe "Change" will come I just hope it isn’t too late for the RV industry.
So you ask what are you doing with the other 6 days of the week. Well, my house is spotless, I clean a lot and I’ve been painting and with the weather being better I have really worked on my flowers and garden. Last week I planted some punkin seeds on some ground that use to house a chicken coop!! I checked on them yesterday and they are up and talk about good fertlizer I’ve got it!!! My lawn looks great as I have the time now to cut it regular and I do all of the weedeating . I finally got my riding mower back from repairs and it was great after pushing it for three weeks!! I still have some areas I have to push but that I can handle. Pushing the whole lawn is a woman killer!!!!
Two days a week I keep my sweet Hayden. Those days are dedicated into doing what Hayden wants to do as being the great-grandmother that I am I spoil him rotten. I pull him around in my wagon, we play on the swing set, we go to the fish pond , we check out my flowers or we just sit on the floor and play with his toys it’s totally Hayden’s call.
Last night was my last night of bowling for the season. I ended up doing pretty good, didn’t get the 600 series I wanted but I was close. Oh well maybe next year.
Tonight our next door neighbors invited Hubby and I out for dinner. We ate Mexican and it was great. I always get the same thing because I’m afraid to try something different and then don’t like it so I stick with what I know. Also today was Cinco de Mayo , the holiday that honors Mexican Victory over the French Army in 1862 and to celebrate this the resturant where we had dinner offered giant Margaritas at a very low price. Needless to say I didn’t have one as most of you know I am goofy enough without adding alcohol to the mixture!!!
Another thing I wanted to share with you all that my space friend and most of yours, Beth Marie and I are going to try to get together in June!!! She is coming here to WV to visit her sister and we have plans to meet. Her nephew lives in my little town , talk about a small world huh? Anyway I’m excited about she and I getting together. You know she and I will take pictures to share with you.
I’m making plans to go to DC this summer, I want to take the camper and stay in Virginia and take the metro to see the city. I especially want to go see the World War II Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial as my dad was a WWII vet and a lot of my friends are /were Vietnam vets. Then I want to plan a trip to Branson , MO and to Maggie Valley. I think I can pull this off since I’m not working now, I’ve made these plans before and they have fallen through because of work and other things out of my controll would come up. Hopefully I can pull it off this year.???
Did I tell you all about my grandson Nic going into the Marines in September? You remember he came to live with me for a while and then moved out, well this past winter he decided to go into the military. I’m so proud of him , trying to do something positive with his life and his country. He has already been sworn in and he goes for weekly meetings for physical training. He is really into it. I wish only the best for him.
Ok I have one more thing to tell you and I will quit babbling. As most of you know I am a dog lover and in 2007 I lost my two beloved Minature Schnauzers to cancer within 4 months of each other. So in about 5 weeks I am going to get two more from the same litter that was born three weeks ago. One of my friends got a minature schnauzer after she fell in love with my two. Well she knew how it hurt me so when I lost those two precious dogs so when her schnauzer had babies three weeks ago she called me and said I could have the pick of the litter. I was thrilled, I know they won’t be Homer and Liem but I do so love the breed. I get to pick one and purchase one I hope at a reduced price!!! LOL I want two males and her little dog had two males and two females. I will keep you posted. Don’t worry about Benji my rescue he’s staying too, he helped me so much when I lost the schnauzers, I hope he will adjust to them as he is so attached to me. If you have any suggestgions on bringing these two pups into his world I would so appreciate it.
Talk about Welcome to spring how’s this for a welcome. This was taken in my back yard where my feeder hangs. wish I had a better focus on it.
Need some pointers from my friend Rambling ON:
Ok I’m done, Have a great week.
