Today I am thankful for unanswered prayers. I am a blessed woman and I need to remember that each and every day.
I thought I had lost something valuable today, my coupon binder. It is important part of my home management and grocery budget. It has over $200 worth of coupons in it, not to mention that it cost me $40 just to get it organized. The cover was a birthday gift from one of my dearest friends. I spend a lot of time cutting, sorting, and filing my coupons because it saves me so much money. I was in a near panic when I realized it was missing. Luckily it was at the last grocery store I used it at. The bagger saw that I had left it and took it immediately to lost and found. When I walked in to the store today they immediately knew why I was there. I was so relieved.
This past week I had a job interview. I am not sure if I have the job but I am hopeful. Money is tight and I am just over it. I do not want to go back to sewing because it just interferes so much with raising the kids. I am a total perfectionist when it comes to my work so it causes me a lot of stress too. Before the job interview I was fixing my hair and burned my neck with the curling iron. So yes, I went looking like I had a giant hickey on my neck. Over the last few days it seems to have gotten more prominent. I saw the butcher’s wife looking at me today oddly when I went to pick up to free range chickens and I am sure she thinks I am some kind of whore.
Speaking of sex, you should go check out my latest post on BlogHer@Home. It is not about hickeys, but it is about “fuck me” shoes. You know leather boots, spiked heels, and lots of patten in black and red. There are pictures and a giveaway too. Who doesn’t like free sex stuff?
We are mummifying a chicken for 4H. My friend Cheryl swears its not going to smell. Funny how our cat though darted right towards it in the laundry room and was eye balling the bag.
I’m still breaking out in hives. I will go to the doctor when I can afford it. Maybe fall?
For a week I ate 1500 calorie diet, drank plenty of water each day and exercised and I gained 3.5 pounds. Something is seriously amiss with that.
BP says they have stopped the oil from going into the Gulf. I am keeping my fingers crossed but not holding my breath.
I have lots of great posts swirling in my head but finding it hard to get them out. I feel stuck in my writing.
Thanks for all the positive emails and messages on my last post. I so greatly appreciate it. They mean so much for me and tend to carry me through the hard times.
And just for you I am going to include the Friday Fill-Ins on this post too!

2.Can you just appreciate the moment?
3. Upon reflection I realize the best decision I ever made was saying “I do” to Mr.K.
4.I have wanted to unburden myself with those secrets for quite a long time.
5. Later, you wake up and you realize it wasn’t a dream after all.
6. My tears have fallen in to the far and boundless sea.
