Winter Hits East Texas
The cold weather has finally arrived. December is here, and it came in with a bang. But my ‘Bad Month’ started in November. Let me explain.
Before I could put up the Christmas decorations, I had to move the LEGO’s from my coffee table and living room. In order to have a place to put them, I needed a table upstairs. I couldn’t have a table without chairs. So, here I go to Wally World to buy a table and chairs. On the way, the truck stopped moving. I called my granddaughter to go tell hubby. He came, took the truck, and left me the Saturn. I went on to Wally World, got the table and chairs, and Nicholas and I moved all the LEGO’s and toys upstairs.
It cost $400.00 to get the truck fixed. But I sure didn’t want to take off to Florida and have the truck quit on us.
I have Verizon Wi-Fi and phones. When I get low on my internet data, they send me a note that goes kinda like this, “You have used 50% of your minutes.” Usually, I don’t go over my limit, but I’ve learned that streaming videos will use up those minutes in a hurry.
Steve had started giving Nicholas the phone anytime we get in the car. I did, too. That seven-year-old watched videos to the tune of $200.00 over my regular $200.00 bill. Now Nicholas almost cries every time we get in the car. I guess he’ll eventually get used to it.
Because I was without my computer for almost two weeks, (I had to turn it off so I wouldn’t run up anymore on my bill) I didn’t get any Christmas shopping done. I buy almost everything online. The day I got the computer back, I ordered all of Christmas.
The next bad news is my dryer started making an awful sound. Hubby took it apart, and there were enough nails in the back to build a small house. He doesn’t empty his pockets very well. Even after the nails, screws, and drill-bits were removed, it still sounds like a jet taking off in my utility room
I had to go online and order a new dryer. They are delivering it this Friday. That’s another $600.00 I wasn’t expecting.
You would think since I didn’t have an internet I’d write more. Wrong. I didn’t write a word. Guess that’s why I’m so late with this newsletter.
On another note, my daughter has another puppy. She is the sister of the female she already has. These puppies weigh about three pounds soaking wet. One is black, with a few white spots, and the other one is white, with one black eye and some more black spots. They are the cutest little girls you have ever seen. I want one so bad but hubby probably won’t give in. I’ll work on that.
Now for the recipe of the month. I don’t have a picture because I made it up. And of course, I didn’t measure anything, so I’m going to give you a guess-ta-mation. I have used low amounts. You may want to add more or less of any of the ingredients.
