Deja Vue ......

So, yesterday the Darlin'Man, his daughter and my older son decided to make a run to Wal-Mart. My son needed a few things he could not find locally, hence the 40mile trek to our nearest local *China-Mart*. I did not feel like making the trip...and I despise that store, anyway.
So, a quiet afternoon/evening at home. Sounded like a good idea to me!
I did not know there is a Tractor Supply store near the Wal-Mart . The Darlin' Man saw that there was and decided to see what feed prices were like there. To his delight they had feed and the price was 1/3 less than what we have been paying. So, he bought feed.
Then he saw something else...and bought and brought home these:

Two ducklings.
We had no place to put them. So, I had to rig together a temporary home for them. Large cardboard box in the bathroom near the small baseboard heater.
Looks like I am going to have to escort the Darlin' Man on shopping trips again!

Well, That Was Fun....Not!

Excuse my absence for the past couple of weeks.
I paid my internet bill on the day it was due. HOWEVER our provider didn't post it to their account until the next day and because that made my payment late....
Yeah, they turned off my internet.
So, I had to post yet another deposit AND wait until one of their service guys could come back out and turn it back on.
Plus, I was arguing with the idiotic insurance company representative about the accident.
Their adjuster decided my beloved van was totaled. Totaled!
I think it could be repaired for under $1000.oo and be in wonderful shape for another 3 to 5 years.
But, n-o-o-o-o-o-o-o....
So, tomorrow, I have to talk to their guy about how much money they will pay me for my van.
Until then, I'll catch up on my blog reading.
Spring has sprung, it's 50 degrees outside!
