Still Gloomy Outside

It is still cold and gloomy outside, but inside it is warm (thanks to the heating repair man that just left) and happy (thanks to this little girl and her sister).

I woke up this morning and the thermostat said 64 degrees and I knew we were in trouble. The repairman came pretty quick. They had to go to Ft. Worth to get a new motor and had it up and running by 12:00. Unfortunately it cost several hundred dollars. The good news is that we didn't need a whole new unit, but that was recommended. We replaced this unit in 1995, so I am hoping to get a few more years out of it. I hate repairs!!!

Tomorrow I get to work. Yeah. (NOT!!!!). I was going to give my 2 week notice last week end, but I got cancelled to work on Saturday and Sunday because of the weather. I am getting ready to retype it with tomorrow's date. It was fun for a little while, but it's not anymore. I am really dreading working this weekend. The discount is great, but not worth the work.

Well, enough of my griping. I have too many things to be thankful for to sound like this. I need to have an attitude of gratitude.

My fast will be over next Saturday and I am counting the days. Last night Pops had a reception at the Four Seasons Hotel and he wanted me to go with him. It was torture. The food looked soooooo good. Party food is my hardest to turn down. We didn't eat and then went to Boston Market for some vegetables. Saturday night we have a party and that will probably be my hardest night of the fast. That's okay because it is all worth it.

I said the discount wasn't worth the work too until I quit. Now I can't afford to shop there and I miss it desperately. :) I still don't want to do the work though, so I guess I'm stuck.

Hi Lolly, Baby Karsyn is growing up too fast. I am still trying to decide who she looks like.....more like Jennifer??? It's funny, but we had to have our thermostat replaced. It went bonkers. They replaced it with a really ancient kind, but it works. A new one is on order. Today has been wet and cold. I am ready for sunshine!! Let me know how the fast goes...I am think of creating one of my own. Some of the items I want to give us is bread and chips. Went to the store today, and I really looked hard at labels and tried to buy only healthy foods. It's hard!But like you say, if we are doing it for our Saviour, then it is worth it! Don't sweat the discount...we still have the SALES!! Thanks again for the pictures!! Gigi
