Its Getting Real Folks

while my luck is going so well, i thought i'd take walkers advise & upgrade to xp. i bought a new western digital 160 gig hard drive & xp professional. i'm keeping the 280 gig for a slave & my xp arrived today. i'll be back when i get it all together. which i've accepted isn't going to be an easy task. wish me luck or kiss my ass goodbye.

And Then

and then the vcr wouldn't come on and then i had to replace the brakes and then, this morning the damn valve stem leaked & my tire went flat. hello! how many people can say they've had a valve stem go bad? and then i had to buy a new tire and then hubby put a plastic bag over the hole in the tank of the toilet to stop it from leaking and then the plastic bag sucked into the toilet & stopped it up and then i had to take the tank off to pull the plastic bag off & then i ripped my face off & pounded my head into the wall cos i couldn't see where i was going anymore. ALWAYS FUCKING SOMETHING!!!
And then i changed cherry's name to demon. THE END

oh, and to make my day even brighter. i looked at my bank account statement & some fucking company has enrolled me in a teeth whitening program that cost me $88.97. like i really need white teeth with no face. oh sure, i want people to see me coming by the really white pretty teeth coming at them in the middle of the red blood tinted area where my face used to be and then i called my bank to ask for info on the company & you know what they could tell me? they didn't know the name of the company & they didn't have a phone number on the company or an address. who needs to steal someones identity when all you have to do is charge their credit card for some unknown reason cos your bank has no clue who's taking your money. wanna pay for your groceries? just key in a credit card number & pretend you know what your doing & the bank has no clue whos charging that debit. their advise was i should receive some product for the charge & then i could return the product to get reimbursed. so, my plan of attack: CRY. and wait for something in the mail. hopefully there is a product to receive. wonder if they'll include a return address?
if you can guess whats gonna happen next, i'll send you my credit card number so you can benefit from the wealth that i don't have. or at least i'll send you a credit card with $20.00 applied. at least i'll have some clue as to what to expect. at this point, it could be anything.
thanks for playing.

When It Rains, It Pours

you've all heard 'when it rains, it pours'. thats where my life is right now. it never fails. just when i think i've got all the shit taken care of another shit breaks loose. you know the feeling? you fix the transmission & the car shimmies so you put on new bushings, the shimmy doesn't stop but then a motor mount breaks. indubitably because of the shimmy. always something. if one motor mount breaks i'm told i might as well replace all of them cos they're all gonna need it anyway. just always something. the cv boot tears loose & you don't realize that the new cv boot you had put on doesn't hold so the axle wears out. always something. so lets add up what i've put into this car in the last few months. some of these price includes labor added in.
transmission: $600.00
axle: $280.00
bushings: $26.00 x 2
transmission mount: $63.00
side motor mounts $46.00 x 2 = total $1087.00
the work sonny has done for me, of this list, i've given him a total of $300.00. not counting the $20.00 here & there for gas money. always something.
yesterday, we went to do some shopping. the car was fine. we went swimming, the car was fine. we went to move the car from the driveway so the kids could ride their bikes, the car wouldn't start. i called sonny to explain what the car was doing for diagnosis. 'mom, it sounds like the coil pack'. i read in the chiltons & it doesn't say anything about a coil pack. it did talk about a coil relay so i called him back. he says 'theres only 2 things that give your car fire, its either a coil or fuel pump'. always something.
i wait about an hour, i tried to listen as i start the car & the first thing i hear is the fuel pump engaging & the car fires up. i turned it off & tried it again. that time i don't hear the fuel pump. i called him back & gave him these details. 'well, i'll try to get there early so i can check it out but i'm sure its gonna need a fuel pump'. which is in the fuel tank. that i just filled up. it is just always fucking something.
fuel pump: $152.00
sonny: $40.00
grand total: $1579.00
needless to say, i don't have much of a nest egg left. what i did have is quickly depleting. i prayed the whole time he was working on it that it be the fuel pump cos honestly it could have been anything from a brain box to a fuse. and 'when it rains, it pours' is just what it did. although, it wasn't supposed to rain today. it did!! always something. but the good thing is he had it finished just as the sky opened up & poured buckets on us. he drank enough gasoline syphoning the tank out that i thought he was gonna ignite so i was alittle thankful for the rain. he's not as good at that as he used to be. he probably saved me $500.00 doing the work. i owe him big time for this one.
i got his computer up & running for the bushings he put on & got him online for the motor mounts but really, today he saved my cars life. i was gonna put her down. i had a bullet with her name on it & the shit was gonna hit the fan. she's one lucky bitch that she has a brother that loves her.

Be Warned: This Will Make You Gag

i received another frantic call from honey today. my god when is the stupid shit gonna end? i've always been known as an animal lover. so many of my friends have brought animals to me to nurse, babysit or relocate that its not funny. i've actually babysat for a skunk & a parrot. both were fun & i hated to give them up in the end but when parents come back for their babies its time to give them hugs, promise to visit & let them go. a few years ago my friend sextex brought her brothers dog to me. he had moved into an apartment that didn't allow dogs. this was a young, friendly, slighty overweight chihuahua. i've sworn off adding pets to my house due to ms. m & her tendency to have seizures. she's very jealous. although she's on meds the least little thing can still set her off. well, i had this dog for a total of about 24 hours when sonny showed up & insisted papaw needed this dog. he had just lost his dog to old age. another chihuahua that he called 'old man'. i let sonny take him home to papaw thinking it would be a good safe home for him & he'd probably outlive papaw. maybe i'd get him back in the long run but ms. m seemed ok with him for the little time we had him so maybe she'd adapt. the frantic call today definitely knocked that chance out of the ballpark. seems there are two big dogs that live next door to them & somehow the fucking horse dogs that they are managed to get into the yard & tore this little chihuahua apart. literally. i am so pissed i want to go out there & chew them apart. bit by bit. well, first i'd like to skin them alive. then start pulling them apart. fucking mean dogs. i hate mean dogs.
if they don't shoot those dogs i'll get someone who will. the last thing i want to hear is that one of those crazy ass useless dogs have gotten hold of my grandson & (god forbid) ripped his face off or worse.
they have a vicious dog law but the law won't do anything about it. they act like they have so much to do that they can't get there to investigate. like they have soooo much on their plates!we're talking about a little hick town that has more donut shops than carter has liver pills. yeah they have a lot on their plates. fucking cops need a donut before they can get their fat ass out of the chair. losers.
i have to go puke a few more times.

Independence Weekend

this weekend we had no kids. being independence day, sonny wanted to take the kids to see fireworks himself. he has a cousin with a big farm that usually gets about a dozen guys to go together & buy as much fireworks as they can afford. then they all bring their families, food, beer, tents & 4 wheelers to have a whole weekend of fun. they started this three years ago & it works for them. at least, nobody gets a dui & they have a great weekend.
hubby & i just enjoyed the weekend together. not doing anything special. we did renew his id, shopped for a new camera, had lucky out for dinner & talked about fixing the bathroom faucet, swimming & what we were gonna do for his birthday.
btw, happy 4th to those that celebrate that. happy canadian day to my friends in canada & the rest of you...just happy day!
