Where is the peace and quiet

Looking for peace and quiet!!

Went to Church Sunday morn and after leaving had to rush to the hospital to be with "pops" cause my mother-in-law passed away Sunday afternoon - so I am in the process of planning a wake. God is with me!!

Didnt get much sleep Sunday night cause our dog outside wouldnt stop barking. She is in a 10 foot high pen that accomadates her very well (she is a sheltie). Even after checking in on her a couple times she seemed to become restless and continue to bark. I normally get up at 5:30 every morning - this morning no difference - I made breakfast and woke this kids to get ready for me to take them to school. (they have to be at school at 7am - they have an extra class so that they can graduate with an advanced degree) My son (AJ) takes our two boxers for their morning walk and my daughter (Deanne) goes out to feed our three chickens (great for eggs to use and sell!) ..Deanne runs back in the house screaming that some type of beast is in the cage with Gretchen (our sheltie) and it has HUGE teeth!! I wake my husband, him and I got out to the pen to see what was going on. Low-and-behold there was a rather large possum in the pen with her. Amazed mind you we are cause the only way the possum could get in the cage was to fall in from a tree (LOL), I proceed to gather the kids to take them to school while my husband "takes care" of our visitor. I pick our my daughters friend - who takes an extra class too and proceed to drop them at school. I get back home and my husband tells me that he has "taken care" of our visitor and not to worry. I mentioned that I DO NOT want the gory details!! Off to work...

Tuesday morning - beautiful morning - kids taken care of - husband buzzing around - I am ironing my shirt to get ready to run to the office, when all of a sudden there is a loud BANG - and all the lights (everything) goes out. OK, now what right?? I go outside to look at the neighbors houses to see if anyone has electric, nope! Well I then walk across the gravel rode - ask my neighbor if they knew anything. She proceeded to tell me that it was the transformer in their front yard - there were alot of sparks and smoke - no light so we both called the electric company to report the power outage. Crossing my fingers that this doesnt last long (food in the chest freezer) I light candles, grab an alternate shirt, (have to skip the morning shower) - no electric to run the pump to get water. I felt yucky!! By the candle light I adjust myself to look at presentable as possible ( I am in a cube all day anyway) I made it to work. My hubby called me about and hour later to tell me that he stopped by the house and the electric was on. Thank you lord!!

Well now it is Wednesday - nothing really exciting on the home front, but I got some good news!! We are getting a $300.00 bonus tomorrow!! This will pay for two months of Orthodonture payments!!

Well give me some time and I know all will simmer down.....

Budget101 is a great stress reliever too!!

Thanks all yall!!

    Oh, sorry to hear about the loss in your family! This is when I wish we were closer so I could at least bring over a casserole or help with the kids.
