I'm An Idiot

I know that I'm an idiot it's official. I put text messaging back on my cell phone for various reasons despite the fact that I need one with a full keyboard and larger screen to be able to see them. I'd love a blackberry so I could get my books on my phone and just have one device to talk, text, surf the web and read on. I also found out that in spite of putting it on my phone I neglected to enable the incoming messages that I had disabled for some reason. Why were they disabled? I don't remember.

This is the last holiday weekend of the summer I think. The fourth of July means that we get out of therapy for three days this weekend, and I have plans. I'm planning to order a new phone soon so that I can put the kindle application on it that way I don't have to worry about whether or not I can find my books to take with me, just my phone.

I'm not sure what I ever did before text messages I think I answered the phone. Although I can remember living without a ph…

Coping and Adding Stress to My Life

OK I'm coping with the fact that I had to fix the car to get us to therapy during the week. What I'm not coping so well with is the added stress of being forced to go back to private clients. I managed to finish the first set of five and schedule out the rest in sets of five. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have done sets of ten but I think the less I have to finish at once the less stress I'll have in theory.

I have to go to the grocery store but first I think I'll check Angel Food Ministries to see what they have this month. I need to make sure and order a box at the first of July so that we have two weeks of food at next to nothing. I have some coupons that I need to use for my Swagbucks. They are about to expire and they are for stuff that I actually wanted for meals so I really need to go ahead and use them. I think I'll separate them out while I research my next article.

I have a page at hubpages that I have to finish up but I seem to be stuck so I may s…

Uggh this could be a rant

I'm tired and sore. The car tore up the other day and had to be pushed, we had to buy a battery. That is after we paid for a tow and the battery is hopefully the problem. If it's not I have no idea what we're going to do.

I'm married to my stress. We have just enough money to get a few groceries until the 14th. We still have to have gas for the rest of the month. Gas prices are coming down some. That's a good thing, the bad thing is having to stop every few days in order to get gas without spending all the money I have at once.

People don't seem to understand that they aren't the only ones that are broke but that's fine too. I know that there are those that don't understand the meaning of broke as well. I'm tired of all the hassles but I got to leave the house this week which was good for me.

I managed a short news article this morning and still have to find something else to do. I'm exhausted and sore. We still need groceries.

Learning Something New

I recently decided to give hubpages a try. I can remember reading that it takes about a year and at least thirty hubs (probably not in the same place) to start seeing visible income. All I know is that it's fun but I'm not sure why my last do hubs aren't rated as high as the first one. The last one was the lowest rated on meaning it has the lowest hubscore. Maybe it'll come to be sometime in the future. In the meantime I'm going to work on the two articles that I want to submit to Yahoo Network. Those are out of my head too and who knows maybe they will give me an idea for something to do on hubpages.

I decided that I don't like Squidoo. I don't know why but I'm not sure the pages look as nice as the ones on hubpages. I have no idea what to create a hub about next, I'm wondering if I should take a look at what I've written in the past and go from there.

I made two pies yesterday out of pudding and I'm thinking that next time I'll see if …

Summer Vacation and High Temperatures

OK so we were at 99 today and I think they said we'd be at 100 tomorrow. We're in an extreme drought which means that my grass is drying, crops are not producing as much and cattle are aren't eating. The last day of preschool for the little one was yesterday, we still haven't made lemonade together and it's too hot to lay in the grass and look for bugs. Besides that I have fire ants so we're going to see just how much we can do inside and on the sidewalk at therapy between appointments since it is shaded. There are cooling shelters open this summer for those without air conditioning. 

I may be among those taking advantage of them since my air conditioning is not working correctly. I have been searching for window units that are big enough to cool my living room and a couple small ones for the bedrooms. I would love portable units but I can not afford them. I still have to find income proofs and get them in by the 10th. I also have to fix the budget so that I ca…
