Thank you Junie, let's fill it up. thumbup

I am still washing ceilings and walls but I should be all done by the end of tomorrow. I am tackling the inside of the kitchen cupboards in a few minutes....there'll be dishes without lids and lids without dishes. haha

Good morning. Coffee is not ready yet.

Gee, come by and do my kitchen when you are done with yours, Sunny. Mine has not been done for 2 years. I have been trying to make myself begin for several weeks now. It is not going well.

The girls are spending the day here today. They thought they should get to spend the night last night.

I doubt if we would be let down, Tina. IMO, we would be happy to meet you, Teddy, and Jonie...pardon me for misspelling her name.

Goodnight, everyone!

It would be wonderful to meet in person, we'd enjoy Tina's nice weather and company. kissie

We have been getting some higher temps all of a sudden, fast snow melt is a mess to deal with....I'm up to my ankles in mud. lol

SIL called that her basement was flooding, it is unfinished but she was worried about her wood furnace. It's been 10 years of telling her that she needs to run a pipe like we did but apparently she'd rather deal with water. You can't go without a sump pump here in spring.

Still washing walls but I should be finished today.

Good morning. I don't understand sump pumps. But I never had to, either. My few basements over the years stayed dry, I guess. Except the one that flooded.

There is a sump pump here, in the storage room. Glad we got one.

Tina, a sump pump is a necessity here.

It's 2 pm, time for a sandwich break. Now, if I could only have someone make it for me. lol

Glad to hear it Tina. A good night's sleep makes all the difference.

Washing clothes and trying to order some clothes for my grandson's birthday.

I paid $500 for the washer 3 years ago and was just told it would be 'at least' $375 to fix it....but the damaged transmission might have caused damage to the sensor and that will be more. So the bill will be from $375 to $575. Does that make any sense??????

Yep, they do not want you to fix it..they want you to get a new one..and my goodness, IMO the new HE machines are crap. I cannot wait (not) to get my almost 3 yr old fridge back on Wednesday. I am scared what it will cost me. And if it is actually repaired.

Yes, this place has had it since August of 2020. I called them the first part of November and was told that they thought they had it relaired, but a week in it messed up again.
I let it go. This past Monday, I went to their store. I wanted to see what they would say to my face. The lady, the owners wife, blamed covid on the long repair time... rolz

Long story short, We got a call, saying it would be delivered Wednesday afternoon. We will see.

Sunny I wish you could buy other than an HE machine. If I had it to do over again, I would have brought my older regular washing machine with me from Illinois. It was wonderful. Not an HE machine.

Paid bills are a good thing Tina.

Junie, I could not find a 'non HE' machine anywhere in the province....apparently they are not being made anymore.

Yes I know about non- he machines. I asked when I went to buy this one..and I too was told they are not being made anymore. I would love to have a few "words" with whomever came up with the bright idea of the HE machines...IMO they should be tar and feathered.

Yes paid bills are a good thing. Now a days ours just sorta trickle in. Annoying at best.

My snow has melted quite a lot this past week, I have a few bare patches of ground here and there. The daffodils are also poking through the ground against the house in the back that faces South. It is a pleasant thing to see.

Junie, my bills come in the middle of the month to be paid by the third week....I pay them at one time around the 16th to the 18th. Here, we can call and arrange to have our bills come in within a certain week.

Good mornong. I hear either a police car or an ambulance..I wonder what is up.

My bills used to come pretty much together. But in groups of 2. Rod got paid every other week, so I paid the bills due the 15 the first payday, and the bills due the end of the month
on the second payday. Here the bills come in differently and we just get our SSI payment once a month at the end of the month. I still am not used to it.

Good morning. The bills I payed were the bigger ones that are due twice a year. Like property taxes and vehicle insurance. I know when they are due so I plan for them and they don't hurt the budget. Other than that are the regular utility stuff and medical ins. I am grateful that I can do it all and have enough left over to eat and save.
Today I'm getting in some groceries. That's fun too.

Yes groceries my are fun...I really need to go pick up some stuff for snack time for the kids.
I was just in Target, and that would have been the perfect time to get that, but Rod was in the car so I was in and out pretty fast. I was so quick buying shorts for my grandson that one pair is the wrong size. Luckily I think they will fit the girls..They all need athletic shorts as they are all playing T-ball this spring.
