OK. First off I would like to state I do love animals. I have a house cat of my own. Second I do NOT love animals relieving themselves in my yard. This makes me quite cranky. It really drives me nuts when the owner stands there and watches the animal do it's business!!!! Then I get harassed for yelling at the dog to get off my lawn. Seems I hurt the owners feelings. Seriously people get a grip.

Just had to get that off my chest.

No Power and Mount Washme

What a crazy week we had. The storms knocked out our power for 3 days.

I was surprised that the things I missed the most were my washing machine and being able to read at night.

We were very fortunate that nothing on our home was tore up. The neighbors were not so lucky. So many had trees blown over in their lawns and on top of their house's. Alot of the older homes suffered damage from winds and downed trees.

At least now I can get caught up with Mount Washme as I love to call it. I think it was breeding in the dark.

Vacation or Lack of

We seem to be in more of a lacking mode lately. My hubby took two days of vacation just so he could crawl under our house and level our floors. Not what I call a great time. Fortunately it wasn't me under there.

Now that the floors are some what level we will have to learn how to walk again. It had gotten to the point if something spilled you just waited 5 minutes and let it settle on the low side of the kitchen. Sad but true. Now I may have a chance to catch the spill before it runs all the way across the room.

While the love of my life was doing the Army crawl under the house and slaving away. I felt like I should cary my own weight and slave away also. So I worked on this.

It didn't matter how many hours I had to slave away on this I knew it would be worth it.  Whatever! Took me l0 minutes. Ha Ha.

Now I can tell the hubby we both worked hard today. Think he'll believe me?

Owner of the Ugly Shoe

Yep, that would be me.

I've been working on getting ready for a 5k. Wearing the same walking shoes that I've had for the past 3 years. I definately feel like I got my monies worth.

Lately I've noticed that by mile 2 my knees and heels were killing me. Not good if your trying for 3.1 miles. So this weekend I finally bite the bullet and pulled out the wallet for these beauties.

I would love to say these are beauties and that I got them for a steal. THEIR NOT and THEY WERE NOT CHEAP. But they do the job great!

I have flat feet. Which means my feet like to turn in as I walk. Not good for the old knees. These keep my feet from rolling in. Now to get back to training. Can't wait to go for a good walk in the morning.

For the past 4 years I've focused on being a stay at home mommy. I've loved every minute of it. Due to the economy it seems it's time for a change.

So I've started doing day care in my home. I know not a huge change from what I was doing before. LOL. I had forgotten how nice it was to get a paycheck. I love the fact I get to stay at home and still bring in money for the extra's.

Hopefully this will improve our situation. We are lucky that my husbands income covers all of our bills. It's the extra's that were costing us more each month. For some reason the kids think it's fun to outgrow all of their cloths on a monthly basis. At least it sure seems like it. That and momma has gotten the letsfixitpaintitredoit fever.

Now to enjoy this beautiful day.
