Ah the end of the month

This month has seen my mom go to MSP on Sun Country for a visit with my oh so perfect brother. She comes home on Saturday afternoon. Can't wait to see her.

We're making progress on the side yard. My tomato plants are growing. I've lost 2. I have 3 little roses growing. Hopefully they will be able to be transplanted next year to bigger pots. My herb gardens are doing well. Water works!

IN less than a month I turn 60. Hard to believe. Scary as shit to tell you the truth. I'm going back to Oakhurst with my husband. We're going to finally scatter his moms ashes up near Yosemite. She loved the park.

Why can I buy a water filter for my fridge cheaper on Amazon than going into Osh, Lowes or Home Depot? Amazing.

Not much else going on. I had a screw up with CVS who kept trying to put a Rx through my workers comp account and didn't notice that the med has been charged to my insurance for the last 6 months. Hello, check both accounts.

Hot flash city tonight.

Outside my window. . . Sunny, west wind, and 69 degrees.

I am thinking…  a holiday weekend to relax.

I am thankful for…  getting my tomatoes planted

From the learning rooms … Pandora One is worth every penny.

I can't believe . . .K is moving back to Wisconsin.  

From the kitchen . . . I’m going to sneak something good?

I am wearing…  shorts, green cap sleeved shirt, slippers ( got a blister and need to get some bandaids to cover it so I can wear shoes.

I am creating . . . a small garden.
I am going…   to online check in my mom tonight.

I am reading . . . Inferno by Dan Brown. Hmmmm.

I am hoping…  The weather is nice all weekend. .   

I am hearing…  Instrumental praise music on Pandora

Around the house. . . . 1 dog, 1 cat, and me.

One of my favorite things… planting plants

A few plans for the rest of the week
1.   Stay with Mom till she gets on the plane.
2.   Check OSH out for their no sales tax weekend
3.   Call the doc on Tuesday and find out why my meds didn’t get refilled.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing:

The first Garden post

A Single lonely tomato next to a flowering plant that will be repotted soon. 

A 99¢ herb garden, more herbs that need to grow, and a 99¢ rose that I got for mother's day. 

The inevitable topsy turvy planter. Has 6 different types of tomato. I'm hoping in August we'll be overloaded with different kinds of fruit. This is on an east facing wall that gets direct light till about 130 in the afternoon, and then indirect from the reflection off the white wall opposite. 

My bonsai red maple. Just keep talking to it and telling it how much I love it.

I haven't forgotten you....

I've just had a myriad of things going on that keep my brain in limbo.

Once the brain reboots and can put together some cogent sentences I'll write a good update.

But for those wanting to know about the trainwreck there's this:

She got blasted in August  2012 and lost custody of her kids to foster care. They were living in a shelter at the time and she went nuts and CPS came and removed them from her care. 
She tried to work the program to get them back but she's fighting demons that fought back and couldn't do what the court expected of her. One of the things that was mentioned repeatedly to her was her habit of serial men. 
She was engaged to at least 3 different guys since August 2011.
She gave up on the kids (this makes 6 total she's surrendered her rights to) and they will be adopted in Jan '14.
She broke up with the latest guy and moved back to Mi from KY where she'd been for at least a year. 
She couldn't figure out why the kids were dx'ed with problems relating to being picked up and packed up and moved x-country several times. One of the little guys had significant health problems that needed to be addressed. She says taking meds makes her crazy and she doesn't like the way they make her feel. So she's on whatever state medical aid KY has and general relief. Keeps boasting about studying this and that, but can't stick out a GED class. (Hell even my bipolar husband did that in 3 months and passed with flying colors). 
She's supposedly back being a friend of Bill and working the steps. 
She's given up on Mi and moved back to KY. She has 6 FB accounts and posts literally hundreds of self portraits of herself trying to be a "sexy mama". You might find her on Craigslist, I don't know. All I know is that she is a self absorbed narcissistic female who should not have been allowed to breed. 
But that's the latest. Who knows? In 6 months she might be pg again and ready to ruin another child's life. This is the person who would be 5 days late for her period and when she got it, called it a miscarriage and posted death dates on her timeline. 
I pray for the boys and hope that from here out their lives will be in a stable loving environment where they don't have to worry about sleeping on quilts on the floor, having their belongings in black trash bags, and a roulette wheel of mama's friends in the house.

Oh yeah. 4 Blackhawks in formation flew over the house today. I swear I didn't do anything to merit that. Honest. Really. Cross my heart.

Meds and hot flashes

I have had a significant amount of pain over the last few days, so I have been taking the heavy hitter pain meds.  I can about figure out when the hot flashes are going to hit. 2 hours after taking them, my forehead starts glistening and I'm looking for the fan. I'd open the window here in the bedroom but there is a Cinco de Mayo party going on next door and the older woman yells when she talks. I have my little circulating fan on and that seems to help.

Last night was the May the Fourth Be With You game night and it was also come up with drinks that match the theme. There was an interesting one called on the shores of lake Navoo (or however it's spelled) that was bright blue. Milk and Creme de Cacao and bourbon. There were 3 birthdays celebrated. One for the 5th, 6th, and 7th. It was pretty interesting and fun.

My dad's birthday is May 7th. If he were still on this earth he'd be 114. But he's in heaven drinking beer and sitting in an aluminum boat with a Johnson Motor on the back. Next year it will be 50 years that he will have been gone. Wow.

Some of my long time readers will remember the tale of the trainwreck and her 2 little boys. There is an update coming up. One that I could have predicted but didn't really expect. More on that. But the leopard doesn't change it's stripes and mean girls are mean girls. They may age chronologically but they are still air boxing at "the other bitches". 

Time to catch up on my DVR===
