Soggy Bottom Boys

9:40M.  I’ve been on the phone trying to use my leftover flex spending account money on a bill. I should have had the brains to pay it before my insurance terminated with the school district. Now I have to fight to get it. I called HR but of course got a voicemail. I hate this bullshit!

I took Bitzi outside this morning and the ground is SO wet and soggy and squishy. It must have rained all night.

I have to go get my drivers license renewed AND take a vision test so I’m nervous about that. I’m positive my left eye won’t pass but you only need ONE to pass. On a good day my right eye might pass. Once I do that successfully I’ll have a big feeling of relief.

I’m going to try on all my clothes and clean out my closets and drawers, bring out my fall& winter stuff, put away summer stuff, clean up my bathroom and take stuff to Goodwill.

I split and repotted my new cacti yesterday. 


2:42pm. I’ve taken Bitzi Lu on two big walks today in this overcast wet gloom. I went through all my drawers and the big master closet and put my spring summer stuff away and brought out the fall winter stuff and organized the monster closet. I took 2 trash bags of clothes to Goodwill earlier but now have two more bags of old bedding stuff that also needs to go. In our two bedroom house without a basement I need to keep up on things and continually purge and reorganize things. I’m sweating a cold pasty sweat from all that work and stepping up and down off the step stool and reaching and carrying.

Gloomy day


It seems there is always some drama going on. My adult sons fight between themselves like dogs and they both work running the family farms in south Fulton county. They both also drink too much. I’m sure I only know the tip of the iceberg but there seems to always be some bullshit going on. Just like their father-constant drama, much of it brought on by their own actions. I try to accept the things I cannot change but it’s hard and my heart aches over it a lot of the time. No matter how old they are they’ll always be my babies.

I have to go to the central office of my old school district in Elgin and get fingerprinted, fill out paperwork & get my badge in case I want to sub. Want to have options.

1:25 back home. The fingerprints took forever. Now they have to run a criminal background check. I’m having to be processed through like a complete stranger new employee. Then I’ll have to go through an orientation session..... very unsure but it did feel good to be back at central office & HR today.

2:23 We’ve been trying to thin out stuff in the garage this past week. We had a couple big plastic tubs of pictures and photo albums we hadn’t dealt with since we moved so I’ve been going through them, saving the good pictures in ziplock bags, throwing away the old albums, giving a lot of picture frames to Goodwill. I put the ziplock bags of good pictures in a drawer in the bedroom. I’ll go through and sort them later and give a bunch to the kids. There were some old school pictures of me when I was little with my long braids and light blue eyes. 

I canceled my indoor pool appointment today. Just not feeling like it.

I have a BBQ seasoned boneless pork loin in the crockpot and I added some Open Pit to it. I’m going to throw an onion in too. Smells good.

3:27. I’ve taken Bitzi on two pretty long walks today. I’m wearing long pants, a sweater and a head wrap scarf because it’s so damp and chilly. I haven’t worn long pants since March 13!

Just had my dark chocolate Klondike bar. Tingly and happy now.
