Oh Where Have I Been?

Posted by on 20 August 2009

I absolutely can’t believe that it’s been a week since I last did a post.  I could’ve swore that I’d done at least one in between, but then again, I am lost for time.  So, what’s been going on during that long absence?  Well, let’s see!!

Dad was here for a week to rebuild the engine on hubby’s car.  I think everyone knows about that.  He left and took kiddo with him for her last summer visit.  They’ve returned and the work on the engine continued.  It all went back together so well, but when we went to start, there was no crank.  After replacing a few more parts like a starter and plug wires, we can now get a partial crank out of it, but still no start.  It seems that the man is going to have to take the head back off and do some more work….mainly adding more lube.  (Keep you mind OUT of the gutter on that one!!)  My only hope and prayer is that he can do it all….safely….in one weekend. 

The reason for the weekend time limit is that I’ve been without a car for 3 weeks now.  I feel like a caged animal.  That’s not all though.  Kiddo and I had several appointments last week and we have more this coming week.  There’s volunteering at the Thrift Store, eye exams, and Red Cross classes.  Not to mention, I was supposed to have blood work done, but can’t go in for a fasting blood test when I have no car.  I’ve had a couple chances to take the man into work and keep the car, but it just hasn’t been worth the hassle.  Our very good friends that sit behind us in church took me to my diabetic eye exam and Dad took kiddo to her first Red Cross class.  We were blessed with help with that and we so appreciate it.

I don’t know the results of my diabetic eye exam.  I got 2 kinds of drops this year and the last one burned.  It took quite awhile for my vision to come back too.  My results will be mailed to me in a couple weeks.  Next week is our regular yearly eye exams.  And those are soon to be every other year thanks to crappy retired military insurance.  We also had dentist appointments and all is well.  The only issue is that the dentist wants Miss K to have a laser surgery to remove this muscle from the top of the inside of her lip to her gum.  It’s causing her teeth to separate and even after braces, it’ll undo what the braces were supposed to fix.  I told him we’ll do it next time.  That is, until I found out that it’s over $250 and our dental insurance won’t pay a single dime of it.  Ain’t life grand!?!?  You pay all that money for insurance policies, then they don’t pay anything.  GGRRRR

Religious Education registration is this weekend.  We’ve already had one meeting to get all our paperwork in order.  We’ll have a week off, then another meeting to get our student numbers and information.  The new religion classes begin after Labor Day.  Time to head back to the classes!!  I’m looking forward to this year so much since hubby is going to be my assistant.  I think we’re going to do great things in that class now that someone will truly be helping.  I think it’ll be a great year, but probably a much smaller class than last year.  After all, I did have 15 at one point, but 14 through the year.  Kind of hard to beat that!!

I think that’s a pretty good catch-up of what’s been going on around here lately.  I really had no intention of missing a whole week.  I noticed that during that time, I lost several off my reader/feed.  I guess they didn’t want to stick around and see what I’ve gotten into lately!!  HAHA  I’m glad many of you did stick around and I’m hoping that I’ll be getting back to blogging again on a regular basis.

With that, I’m off….

    I’ll keep you in my prayers.

    I now share a car with MONK and you know what that means . . . I have no car so I know exactly how you feel. 🙂

    Hmmm, been asking myself the same question. Here I am, finally. My last day on “duty” at sisters. Hopefully for awhile, please God.

    I did finally get a new background up on my blogs. Also started a new blog for my sister before she went in the hospital. Poor thing hasn’t been able to write on it since. You can get to it through my profile.

    Going to take me awhile to catch up here!

      Glad to have you back, Debbie. You and your sister are in my prayers. I hope things calm down for a long while for you all. I pray God grants you all some peace.
