At Least My New Sod Loves the Weather!
Sold furniture like a boss this week . Best week I've had so far and look forward to payday on Friday. I'm a lot more comfortable with the computer and financing system. I used to almost feel like persuading people not to finance because I was scared of the details and process it involved. I've got the process down now and the minute peeps say they don't have enough money I heartily encourage them to finance finance finance!! It's a great tool to use if you can pay it off in ninety days. For ninety days it's interest free. After ninety days they start taking your children and charge you double. Well, they don't take your children but they do charge you a hefty interest rate.
I had a sad week last week and it's gonna be tight til Friday but I got a free pallet of sod and come Friday I'll be able to catch up my bills and may even have enough to get my dryer vent fixed!
I am determined in my belief that our glass is always half full!
After work I went and got Zach a Great American Cookie Company cake for his birthday. The dude I work with on Saturdays (who has no kids) said just go to Walmart and get one. If Zach was turning twenty I may have but TWENTY ONE is a big milestone and he's really turned his life around, works forty plus hours a week and never asks for anything...well almost.
The guy at the cookie place is a friend of Massey's and originally told him to just write Happy Birthday on it but he said I should make it unique so we did.
Tim drove them all into Atlanta today to tour the Sweet Water brewery and then Zach went to have a big steak at Texas Roadhouse with his buddy who's girlfriend was the DD. (designated driver)
After picking up the cookie cake I had to swing by Dollar General for another universal remote. Yes Ziggy chewed up another one and better be glad they only cost five bucks. Then a co worker was having a baby shower today and had promised to stop by. I picked her up a gift card for Target at Kroger. I'm skating on thin ice til Friday so bought her a fifteen dollar gift card and ran by to give it to her.
She's a big black beautiful woman and love her dearly but that's all I could afford. I walked in and looked like a tiny speck of salt in a big ole pepper party. About six months ago she asked me to buy a raffle ticket from her church. They were five bucks a piece and bought two. About three weeks later I asked her about it and she seemed shocked but admitted she forgot to get my tickets.
I felt a lot better today dropping off my paltry gift and told her it was only for fifteen dollars but add in the ten she owed me from the church raffle and it was a twenty five dollar present.
Came home, vacuumed the house and still have Flaco's cookie cake waiting. I'm not a male but have raised two. At least he's being safe and the cookie cake will most probs still be here. Don't expect him home tonight but know he's in good hands.
One more day of work and then have my wonderful, wonderful Monday off to look forward to.
Pizza rolls, here I come. Watching some boob tube and peacing out for the night. I'm all into the Treyvon Martin case.
Here's my take on it.Treyvon Martin may not have been the greatest kid on earth but did he deserve to be profiled , stalked and shot by a man who was told by not only the homeowners association but repeatedly by police, Do NOT confront, do not approach when all the kid had on him was a hoodie, a bag of skittles and a can of iced tea?
If somebody pulled a gun on me you damn straight I'd fight back.
Just saying...my kids have done wrong things but lucky for me no one put a gun to their chest.
Til next time...COTTON
