My column, and other "stuff"

I talk about BBQ season or in my case cremating season in my column this week on The Eden Valley Messenger.  No idea what I am going to write about next doubt something will pop up before the weekend.

The workmen arrived on Tuesday and  got all the drywall/plasterboard hung in the attic.  So now the guy who puts on the mud and tape will come in and sort it all out.  He has got the stomach flu at the moment, so not 100% sure when he is going to arrive?

It poured down all day on Tuesday and with the guys walking in and out, there is mud from one end of the house to the other.   However there is little point of doing too much cleaning as when the sanding begins its going to be nasty.  I am so not looking forward to that.


1. Everyone around you has an attitude problem.

2.You're adding chocolate chips to your cheese omelet.

3.The dryer has shrunk every last pair of your jeans.

4.Your husband is suddenly agreeing to everything you say.

5.You're using your cellular phone to dial up every bumper sticker that says "How's my driving-call 1-800-***-."

6.Everyone's head looks like an invitation to batting practice.

7. You're convinced there's a God and he's male.

8.You can't believe they don't make a tampon bigger than Super Plus.

9.You're sure that everyone is scheming to drive you crazy.

10.The ibuprofen bottle is empty and you bought it yesterday.

Off to get more chocolate and ibuprofen!!!

Did you remember to put your money in your daily savings pot?

Today's Money Saving Tip:

Keep it indoors. Whether you’re heating or cooling, you don’t want your energy going out the door. Caulk and weather-strip around doors and window frames. Closely check any area where pipes go from the outside of your home to the inside, especially plumbing pipes. And if you have operable storm windows, make sure those are shut, too.

So keep your energy indoors. Don't be runnin' in and out checkin' on those cremated burgers. Just cook your burgers on a stove-top cast iron grill where you won't forget them, flame 'em with a hot flash or two, and smear a little high-end hickory sauce on the'. They'll think your a fabulous barbequer!!

THANKS for my chuckle to start my day Gill!! It made me remember a joke I heard years ago that asked "what is the difference between a terrorist & a woman with PMS? You can negotiate with a terrorist..." I'm off to have chocolate for breakfast!!

All about chocolate, even the one with the omelet, describes me. Sounds like I'm in trouble!
My PMS is making me depressive and irritable. Awful combination. Luckily I recognize it and can control it - a little bit. I wonder if my kids will understand one day why nice mommy sometimes goes and that screaming woman comes instead.
