WHAT a day...

What a busy day! I am so glad that tomorrow is Sunday and hopefully a day of rest for me. I cannot figure how I manage to be busy all the time, yet no visible changes can be seen. Nor have I stepped a foot out of the house today. Not even to walk Roxy. Jerrell usually over walks her on the weekends. I did cook some things for lunch tomorrow, but til I finished I was too tired to cook again so we just ate what we spose to have tomorrow.

I had an important email to write, which needed to be well thought out and sensitive in nature, so since that is not my area of expertise, I had to really struggle. I was bout half through and that dad jim telephone rang and nobody here to answer it, so I went to get it, thinking...this shore better be important...and it was. It was my son and he is very important. By the time I finished talking with him, my mind was on a whole different matter of course than the email I had to go back and finish up.

Proceed I did do and carefully I might add. This was not a normal email, but a necessary one under the cirucumstance. I did finish the email and felt like I was honest and caring in my delivery of the intent of the email.

I thought I had my mind made up on my computer until I got a phone call from my brother today. His wife was on her girl's day out and he was off the golf course since he is a senior citizen and can only play during the week on the course and we just had plenty of time to talk and neither of us are shy with our tongues. I hope he enjoyed shooting the bull as much as I did.

He knows the programming, programs, software part of a computer, BUT don't know pee doodley about the guts of one. He was awful amazed that I knew quite a bit about the guts. Goes to show you that I listened to his late wife when she would be telling us things, whereas he musta didn't.

To make a long story short, if I go on now and get the h/d, they can transfer all my valuables off thisen onto the new one. Vs- if I wait til it crashes, then "I" will have to download some programs that I have that of course do not come with XP Pro. Knowing me and always looking for the easiest way out of everything and after talking to my brother, I think I will just take it in the first of the week, that is if it is still running by then. I should be down for a couple days as they got a staff that gets them in and out in a speedy and professional manner.
Unless of course I change my mind before then.

This just happened 5 minutes ago, the phone rang again and it was my poor mother in law. First thing she ask is, what day is today? Not the first time this has happened. Welp, I told her it was Saturday. She thought it was Sunday and she had missed church. She had also bought something today, which has been a no-no for her all the 39 years I have been married to her son. She will NOT buy on Sunday. And that is why I have to cook on Mother's Day!! I assured her that it was Saturday-- she even caught me on a good day, so she is also lucky! I reminded her about her getting Sunday in the wrong place a while back and she bought that day and I told her she would just hafta pray a little harder, I thought the Lord surely would understand. To soften the blow, I told her that happens to me too, must be our age. I am 62 and she is 90. :) Now I am gonna jump back up to where I was.....

I have jumped and I am finishing up. Thanks for bearing with me... Until.....

God Bless!

Claudia, I have days like that too.... work my fingers to the bone and can't see a thing I have accomplished. I just wonder when I'm going to retire..... since I have suposedely been retired, I have worked harder than ever. There's always something that has to be done. My sister and I talk about this.....we say "We won't ever get any rest on this earth".
Is that a picture of Roxy unrolling the bath tissue? Have you bought a digital camera? If not, I think you should. I would rather do without my phone than my digital camera...LOL But I hope I won't have to do without nither.
Did you see my comment a while back where I ask you if your in-laws were related to the Buntings Drug Store in Bristol? I think it was the oldest drug store in the state of Tennessee. It was demolished about ten years ago. I hated to see it go. They sold good hot dogs....among a lot of other nice things.
Well, have a nice Sunday...try to rest, so you can take your computer to the hospital on Monday.The guy that fixed mine had it done in one evening, so it shouldn't be hospitalized very long!

thanks clara! I am truly impressed with your website. You are certainly a lady of many talents and I really loved the afghans that you made. I must show my husband all the lovely flowers, as he tends the flowers, my thumb ain't green yet. I will go through it's entirety asap.

I forgot to answer you re: the Bunting store. To my knowledge, none of our Buntings live in the area you are speaking of, although most likely they are of some distant kin as many of the Bunting clans are.

I just thank you for sharing your website address with me, it has given my afternoon a much needed, relaxing tour of sheer pleasure. Thanks my dear friend clara in TN.
We must meet one day. We are too close, not to.
The camera, time will tell....
God Bless!

clara, a ps .... me again too... :)

No, that ain't Roxy. I just liked that little doggie! But there is pictures of Roxy in Moo's Pictures link on my blog. :)

I looked at your pictures too! and enjoyed them. I tried to leave a message in your guestbook and it said I had to be a member of Webshot. I also looked at Moo's Dash in Life. That is really so true. Thanks for looking at my Website. It's been a while since I added any pictures. I'm glad you enjoyed strolling through my place!

I hope I get to be 90 and have senior moments. I clean for a lot of seniors and am told regularly that growing older is not for sissies, so I feel confident for you and your mom-in-law. I love reading your blog, I can imagine that you type just the way you talk!! I enjoyed Clara's web site too, thanks for sharing

That Cleaning Lady said...

Oh by the way, thanks so much for sharing pictures, I just went through and so enjoyed "meeting" your family! Such handsome boys and your little doggy is sure a cutey pie too.

Grammie said...

"Pee doodley" !! Another wonderful word that is what makes your blog so unique and enjoyable!
Good luck with the computer stuff. I've been there, done that...and it isn't much fun. Have a lovely day!

Moobear said...

Wow, what a difference a day does make! Thank ya'll for the nice comments. It sure is nice to meet you "that cleaning lady". I will hafta get by your site, but am running short on time right now as you can see, but I will be there cause I just said I would. :):)

Thanks grammie. Hon, I just callem like I see them. The way I write IS the way I talk. I found out a long time ago it is just hard to be "proper" so I just am what I am and try not to use no "uggie" words and don't worry much about the rest.

Hello again to my good friend clara!

Thank all of you for your comments and taking your time to stop by and read my blog.

God Bless!
