Just Stuff

I just wanted to catch up with everyone, I am not very good at updating anymore.
the universe has really been playing games with me. It started when we had to take out a personal loan because our bank totally screwed us. They were charging us overdraft fees when there was plenty of money in the bank to cover our deductions. I am working on getting that taken care of, but we have a new bank.
Anyway, we got the loan last week. We had some bills to take care of first and then we were going to let the rest sit in savings. Monday night the dryer the breaks. Also Monday the pool filter pump quit working. We got a new dryer immediately, the pool pump will wait a little bit. We have been battling the pool for a couple weeks now, algae!
Work has been ok except for the slacker I sit next to. I didn't want to have to do it but I had to report her for playing on facebook. This was no check in during breaks. This was all day playing games and having papers spread out on her desk to look busy. So the boss has a meeting, no playing on facebook. Now she uses her phone to play. LOL It is quite funny and irritating at the same time. I think she is in for a surprise as we are getting a new program that will show the bosses how long it takes us to process something. LOL wonder how she will get around that.
Dakota has to go to summer school! I know, that's crazy! But he really hated his english class, too much writing. lol so he basically gave up half way through the year. No amount of bribery, punishment, warnings of failing could induce him to get this work done. So now he has to pay the penalty. He plans on playing football this coming year in school so that will be an incentive to keep his grades up!
Mr. Lucky Cat is one weird cat. He does not like any form of fishy cat food! He prefers chicken! And he will beg like a dog if we are eating chicken.
We have had some really bad storms here over the last couple of weeks. Dakota stays home by himself now but when the storms come, he runs next door to our neighbors. They are an older couple, a few years older than me, and they are the nicest people. I am going to bake them something this weekend as a thank you!
That's all the news for now folks!

that is too funny about your cat! i think if i walked around with chicken in my pocket, i would soon not have any pants to wear!

Cats are so funny! Things to break or someone needs something else new, shoes, jeans, ect. It always seems to come in threes. Hopefully you can get a new pump soon. We had that happen one year to our pool.

I found one online that was about $50 cheaper than in the stores and free shipping! I might get to go swimming this year!

No fox. I was thinking about it again today: last summer he only came around once a week, and it was as if he had to write it on his calendar to make the trek over here. It's entirely possible his territory has moved and he is flourishing in his new home. That said, I really miss him a lot.
comment by troutbend on June 23, 2013 7:21 PM ()
I miss hearing about him too! maybe you will have new animals visiting this summer.
reply by elkhound on June 24, 2013 3:21 AM ()
I think there is some weird vibe in the universe, too. My computer imploded last week, a major financial crisis, so I hear ya. Another budget redo. Sigh.... Best wishes to Kota in summer school. He'll find his motivation if he wants to play football. Hang in there!
comment by marta on June 22, 2013 12:02 PM ()
I think kota is actually looking forward to summer school! he keeps complaining about being bored. have a good weekend!
reply by elkhound on June 22, 2013 1:48 PM ()
Oh wow, reporting someone for Facebook use!
We have been getting those storms as well, not fun at all! Glad Kota has a safe place to go when he need to

kristy this woman spends ALL DAY playing games! i get on facebook too, check the news, etc. but not all day long! she should have the title of queen slacker!
now give that beautiful baby girl a kiss from me!

Thanks for the update. We love hearing from you. Dakota will catch up if football is the lure. Lucky cat looks like the cat on the flying trapeze.

that is how lucky cat was sleeping! and he stayed like that for a long time! I love sharing my life with my mybloggers family! I just need to do it more often.

Thanks for the update, I love hearing how you all are doing. Some day Dakota will be glad he was forced to get through English class.
comment by troutbend on June 20, 2013 8:56 PM ()
english was always my favorite subject, creative writing was my best! he is a smart kid, he just got so lazy this year.
has mr. fox shown up at all?
reply by elkhound on June 21, 2013 3:27 AM ()
Get a few extra bucks and something comes along right away to take it. I hate when that happens.
comment by jjoohhnn on June 20, 2013 7:18 PM ()
isn't that the truth! I guess I should look on the bright side and say, at least we had the money to replace the dryer.
reply by elkhound on June 21, 2013 3:26 AM ()
That slacker is going to be caught with her proverbial pants down. This season has begun with rain, rain, rain, rain here too.
comment by drmaus on June 20, 2013 5:16 PM ()
It's nice we have had the rain, everything is still so green and alive. But those storms I could do without! I was at work one day and it got very black outside, lightning everywhere. scary and awesome at the same time.
reply by elkhound on June 21, 2013 3:25 AM ()
Are you still at Wal-Mart?
While you are baking I'll take a carrot cake!!!!!
comment by greatmartin on June 20, 2013 3:38 PM ()
Martin, I left walmart in 2011. I got a job at a local university, one I had worked at right before I had Dakota. I love working there but it is a state job so you see alot of slackers!
I have never made a carrot cake but for you I would try!
reply by elkhound on June 21, 2013 3:24 AM ()
So nice to see you here.Dakota will be fine and should be good for him.Wished that they had this when I was growing up.I always like to write.They are not writing anymore with the all the gadget out there and they are losing the art of writing.
well we all have our thing.Chicken is his.Maybe the fish is too smelling like you say.
Have a great weekend and take care.Again,good to hear from you.You have to be careful with the banks.Guess,a lot of them are having problems with them Hidden fees etc.
comment by fredo on June 20, 2013 2:01 PM ()
our bank got a new company to handle it's debit card transactions in December. That's when it all started.
i have always loved writing so to see Dakota struggling with it is so frustrating for me.
Mr. Lucky Cat is a very unusual cat and keeps us laughing all the time.
