I had a scary morning/day. After I got off of MMC this morning, lights were flickering through the house to the point the electricity was only going off in certain rooms then come back on. It wasn't the whole house at the same time, it was different rooms. I got worried we had some type of electrical short and was worried a fire would spark. I did a lot of trouble shooting, checking all the breakers, outlets, etc. Finally called the electric company to rule out a problem there before having an electrician come out. He spent close to an hour here and discover a bad connector outside and replaced it. He also cut down some branches that were laying on the power lines. Phew! It's been a long day dealing with that but happy it all turned out well and we are out of danger!

Good afternoon everyone! I am home from work a little early, slow again. I had been thinking about changing my time @ work. there's a lady there who is raising her grandson & is part time but has wanted full time. I am always tired & worn out & it had alot to do w/ my decision. I gave up 1 day & she gained that day so it worked out great for us both. I am very happy w/ less hours.
Thank you, merry!!
And thanks so much for the touching video of Fiona xo

Hope you & yours are doing well!!
That was so thoughtful of you to give some of your hours to your friend at work. Xo

You could be a crumb of moldy cheese. An underdone turnip.
