Sunday, August 31, 2008

OK, so two U-Hauls, one garage sale and 30 gallons of sweat later we are finally moved in. I think I pulled my Frontalis muscle at some point. My U-Haul was also attack by a vicious swarm of bee's of- course at 65 MPH they lost but all the same they messed up my wind shield and well I just wasn't the same after wards. Now on with the job hunt. Details and Begging to follow. I f anyone has any suggestions for a new career path I am all ears. If you are going to suggest Clown please don't forget I have been a Realtor for the last year and a half we've already covered tat avenue.

Me And A Little Dragon Fly:  

Thursday, August 21, 2008

So today was the big load up the truck,throw out your back, say words your not suppose to say, moving day. I would say all pretty much went to plan. I planned on being totaly tired, beat up, exhausted, and ready to curl into the fetal position and suck my thumb by 8:00 pm and I stayed on schedule so I just want to tell the folks at U-Haul after next week I hope I never see you again.
OHH whats with the dragonfly you ask well he snuck in and is flying around keeping me company. BTW the side of the U-Haul also has a dragonfly on the side Go Figure.

Baking With Brother Smeag  

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

So I want you to use your imagination for a minute and picture the Weekly Priesthood meeting and the Teachers Quorum President gets up to give his weekly report on what they did this past week in the Teachers Quorum. (Pause)

OK FYI here for you Sisters out there this is how it usually goes: Well um this week we um played basketball and um we lost, cuz um Brother Smith um forgot to tell us that um we were playing um instead of um going to the um Temple Ummmm Visitor Center,so um we um all wore church shoes um and um well you just can't jump in those um that's all.

OK Now this is how it will be on Sunday: Well um we went to Brother Smeags for a service project um we thought we going to um move or something but um we got there (uncontrolled laughter) and um he needed us to paint his house um with the stuff um that smelled real bad um (FYI it was KILZ Primer) and um well umm I think we finished, does does anyone remember? Um Um well all I know was that we were all real happy after words and um it smelled real funny(more uncontrolled laughter) um I think we're going back next week and um I think we probably won't remember anything and um be really happy.

THAT'S RIGHT I got the Teachers Quorum good and baked with fumes from KILZ Primer, do you think maybe that's why the call it KILZ. I have to say thos kids gave it there all in those tight airless rooms. Just the way to start out in a new ward. I hope the Bishop isn't a reagular reader.

I Have A Chain Saw And I Am Not Afraid To Use It:  

Monday, August 4, 2008

This post is dedicated to my nice elderly neighbor, who mows his law everyday BTW. About 1:30 this afternoon the nice old gentleman rang my door bell. When I saw who it was I thought wow here's my neighbor whom I have only spoken to once in the year we have been here and I really don't know his name maybe he is going to say " Hey Young fellow I see your selling your house, I have this rich grandson that needs a place....etc" but no. What he said was " Have you seen the side of your house today?" ??????HUH???????? (that's me). He escorted me to the side of the house next to his and showed me where one of our beautiful Mesquite trees had been uprooted by winds from the storm that roared into town just as I got home last night.

Normally this would probably be one of those problems I tend to ignore until it goes away. Not this time. I was planning on packing allot today and feeling like I accomplished something but instead according to the gas company rep who came out to look at the tree ( since the previous owners planted it right on top of the gas line) that it would for sure need to come down. So a couple points I need to make here.

  1. I did not have a chain saw this morning.

  2. I do not have a truck (just the incredicar).

  3. NO ONE, yes NO ONE had time to help ( but that's OK).

  4. I have a chain saw now.

  5. I now feel like Paul Bunyan.

  6. They tree is now fire wood.

  7. I found some help to haul off the offending tree. (thank you Elders Quorum)

  8. I still don't have a truck just a chain saw.

Ok so I spent the afternoon cutting down the mesquite. Well enough that any more heavy winds and rain should not knock it down. So the moral of the story is that when Thai crazy old guy from next door comes knocking on the door it's not because he's sad to see you go, nor does he have girl scout cookies that he just wanted to share because he thinks it's time to get to know you after a year. BTW the photo is not of me using the chain saw.
