It Hit Home
I don't often copy and repost things, but this one hits home since I have several family members who fall into special needs categories.  My cousin had this on his facebook....Children with special needs don't have an illness, so there is no cure and it's not contagious. They want what we all want - to be accepted. Most of you probably won't copy and paste this, but will you do it and leave it on your status for at least an hour? It's special education week, and this is in honour of all the kids who need a little extra help and understanding. Thank you

It just seemed appropriate


You Are Blunt Yet Charming



You tell it like it is, and you don't mince words. You speak your mind, and you use a lot of colorful language.

This sort of brutal honesty would put most people off, but for some reason, it only makes you more charming.



You live life exactly how you want to - no apologies. You act quickly and decisively. And you don't second guess yourself.

By being assertive, you have gained the respect of many. People may not agree with you all the time, but they do admire you.

Holy Cow, It's Thursday!
Sunday, had a wonderful visit with the Bob-it's been FAR too long! 

Monday, I went to the chiropractor and then picked Richard up from school-he got sick.  He has been complaining off and on all week of aches but I think it is just growing pains.  Nathan was miserable with them at this age.

Most of the rest of this week we have been cleaning, stacking, planning and storing.  My kitchen is nearly organized and the bad, nasty, funky horrid, foul stench that was in the refrigerator we got over the weekend is nearly gone so soon we can move it in.  My in-laws had forgotten to remove some of the things from the freezer when the power was turned off to the vacant house.  At the time, it had butter and pumpkin in it. Talk about NASTINESS!!  It was a newish fridge so worth the major scrubbage we had to put into it.  Thanks Bob for the extra elbow grease!  I finally bought Arm and Hammer pet scent remover.  I figured if it could get rid of cat pee smell.... 

I have also gotten to use my new stove/ovens.  The bottom element in the lower oven is not working, but Shaun said he will hunt one down for me.  Otherwise, it is great.

My back is continuing to heal, but I can tell at the end of the day if I have pushed it too far.  I will be glad when I can help around here again more.  

We now have roughly 6 rick stacked up in the yard and more waiting to be picked up when the ground dries more.  The other day, they guys had over a rick of unsplit red oak on the Dodge and it got stuck coming up the hill and broke his tailgate in the process.  They had to unload it and then lift the truck out with the tractor.  He then backed the Chevy in at the top of the hill and loaded it....then it got stuck in a sinkhole. So....they had to unload it AGAIN!  I felt so sorry for them. It's been quite a week, for sure.

We are still making ends meet, since Shaun sold his welder.  He was sad to see it go, but with all the rain he has had barely any work.  I will be glad when we get past this test. :) 

It will all come together-it will all be ok.  It always is.

TAX REFUND SCAM
There is a scam going where they promise a tax refund.  They link to a "where's my refund" page that looks exactly like the one in the irs.gov site. What clued me on it was that it was NOT at the IRS address.

I got one of these phishing emails today.  Please be careful. IRS will not send you an email!
