Screen Door and Another Sale

 After that last blogg I decided to lighten up. I am so working on being a nice person and sometimes it can be a challenge. Anyway, Howard built me a new screen door for the back door. It helps keep the bugs out and the dogs in. I have so much to do and this helps so much. Thank you my husband. 
Well, back to the storage unit again. I am lined up for another sale under the freeway. I am not ready at all and a little worried I won;t be ready. I only have one month that I can do this, I will be getting  a new knee which screws up my summer. It is along recovery and the house, yard and storage has to be done. I can be a bit of a fuss bunny, making it hard on my care givers (husband & daughter). I guess I should say I am sorry before it all happens! Sorry!!!!! If you look close at the picture you can see a turkey running off. He was checking out my stuff when he came by. I will start tomorrow and get it all done, keeping figures crossed!!!!!

Being Sick Is Hard

I hate to think about the negative things in this world. When I do it makes me feel so petty, but sometimes it just clears my mind to let it all go. I meditate to help with all the daily problems and the pain I am going through. Ms is very hard to deal with as I get older. The shots are so painful, but I have more lesions on the brain and they do help. I have had my MS for most of my life, starting with migraines as a small child. With all the other things that can go wrong it has made them all much worse. It causes depression because of the problems in the brain. I am sure my husband would say I am a pain in the butt, but he loves me through all my health problems, I am a lucky woman to have him, but then again he is lucky to have me too! Together we make a whole, as one always. I wish my dear daughter was as lucky, her marriage fell apart. She is back with us now, some days are good and she makes the plans for school, she wants to go forward. Other days she is very sad and lost, these days break my heart. The worst days are when she cries most of the time, nothing we can say helps. The health problems are getting too much for her to handle and we are so little help. She may have MS, we will not know yet, the pain is so overwhelming. Now the breast cancer scare. We will hold our breath and her hand. She feels like someone is missing, I know how she feels, I would be the same. The test she will be put though are so scary and the results can be so hard. I will love her through it all. This among other things make me hate her husband or soon to be ex-husband. He left her knowing about all her health problems, her teeth are breaking and she will have to get new ones (mine did the same thing, an MS thing), her eyes are bad and she need new glasses, the breast lumps, her hips and leg pain (the same as mine) and the depression that goes along with many medical problems. It is such a hard time, I know I have been through them to. She has a few other issues and I have some that differ, but live can be so hard for some. I know there are so many that suffer more, but that doesn't help when it;s late at night and in a very painful place. You need that loving hand and poof, hes gone! He doesn't help by telling her she stole $3,000 of his money, she needed it to pay the doctor bills, he worked for it so she has no right to it. What a load of crap! We gave them $15,000 when we sold the house in Idaho, he did nothing to earn that money, one of the laziest men I have ever known. He spent it on himself and she got nothing. No, she got a laptop, washer and a drier (She had to take the washer and drier back, they needed the money). The way I figure it he owes me a butt load of money, he only got money because he was married to my daughter. He lied so good he had me fooled and he broke my child;s heart, I will never forget this lesson and I truly hope he learns a big lesson. We cared so much we looked the other way, another thing I will never forget. It all ended very sick, ucky and ugly! I hope so much for her and will be ther to help her along. Have a wonderful new life my sweet daughter.

My Yard Sale Bench

I got this fantastic bench at a yard sale last weekend, love it. It is all held together with pegs, the wood is very old and it was only $20.00. I had a great time out wandering from street to street. It makes me happy to get something that is one of a kind. I found so many great things, but this has to be my very favorite. I have no idea what I  will do with it, it is just the thrill of the hunt! I am hooked on bringing home a truck full of treasurers.

Turkey in the road

One thing I will never get use to is wild turkey wandering around. We see them when we travel any road, going any where. I have not gone to many places yet, but do plan on it soon. I want to see San Francisco as soon as I can. Our daughter has had a hard time with her soon to be ex- husband. He has put her through a very bad brake up. When she cries it makes her mom sad, very angry and want a piece of him. I guess karma will take care of things, fingers crossed. I don't hate people, but I do hate what they can do to others. Seeing and reading things are painful, I thought he loved her. To find out he was not only fooling her, but us too. We were with them a week earlier and all was great, he was making plans of places he wanted to show us! I guess I was made a fool of to. I will have my radar up now. In the end it was as bad as it gets, he threw her out and she is home with us. We love her tons, I just hope it's the last time I have to see how bad and sick a man can be, ick. Well we all will be fine and she is getting stronger. We are a small family, but a trusting one. He is one turkey who should stay out of the road!!!!!   

Under The Freeway Antique Sale

Under the freeway antique fair. I went there yesterday and did very well. I wanted to get my storage a bit cleared out and was told they were full for this month, I was bummed. I need to get as much done as I can before my knee replacement surgery. It only is open on the second Sunday of each month and I was afraid I would run out of time for this Summer. I have until July before the surgery, but I am on stand by, so it could happen ant time. I was going to have to wait until next month to sale any of it and my storage was full. Well, Saturday I got the call they had a spot for the sale at 5:30, my storage is open until 9:, I had just finished taking more to the storage and was tired already. Howard ran for the trailer, Dee and I got ready and we dashed for the storage and filled the truck and trailer. We made it and came back to get the rest of the day over before some sleep before the dash at 3:30 in the wee hours of the morning, get down there to unload, and sale until 5:00. Leaving before 5:00 is frond on so it makes for a very long day. I did it!!!! Now I hope the doctor does't call because my leg and knee is very swollen, no surgery if they are. On the other hand I could make one more sale next month or am I pressing it? Well, I did do well and we will see!!!!!!!!!

Cactus and more Cactus!!!!

                                                     My lemon tree is getting bigger!!

We planted a bunch of cactus this week. Now we know you need to wear gloves! I guess we did know, but we are use to the guy way. We are trying to be ladies in our new life, it is some times a hard to change. We were farm girls not that long ago. It will take time and we will be girls again. The man who does the lawns let us dig up the cactus in his back yard. They are great plants for a very dry California. I love to have a yard with very little care, I am tired now and need to take the time for other things. We will put down the rocks and just water when needed, so great. We have a back yard for the girls (Martha and Elizabeth). They need to have potty and play in the grass, but just a little area. I am so happy with the nice guy and his wife, how nice! I took a few pictures, but there are many more. Back to the cactus, Ouch, still picking out thorns. These plants will get very large. Can't wait!!!!
