It is Friday morning how has your week gone? Mine 😭😞😬😳🍫. However, my husband and daughter are out of town so I'm getting some much-needed me time. How are things going for you?

The insurance adjuster finally came out to look at the quad my husband wrecked. Insurance company wants a police report. DNR handles off-road vehicles and boats. DNR came out on Tuesday. The officer was off on Wednesday & Thursday. He'll file the report on Friday. I should be able to get it on Monday. So we should find out what they're going to do next week--fix it or total it.

Our 21st anniversary was Friday. Hubby got me new tires, is fixing the ball joints on my truck, and a trip to Catherine's for clothes. (He works and has more money than I do.) I got him pork rinds, one of those sausage & cheese kits, nuts, socks & undies. (If it were up to him, he'd wear a brand new pair of socks & undies every day.)

Over the weekend, friends & my mom came over. Hubby worked on my mom's car & our friends' van. Us gals 3 adults, 2 girls) decorated the tree.

Those things can be so dangerous we get The fatalities every year. People decide to go on the sand dunes drunk. People come from all over the country to take quads out here

He definitely won't drink if he's going to ride the quad. He has one buddy that insists he rides better if he's had a few drinks -- to get his courage up.

We were at the beach one time and this lady was so drunk she could hardly stand up and was out riding the quads. Because of the way the wind hits the sand dunes there a sudden drop off's and sometimes the dunes change.

We have been spreading germs with each other this week.

We are also preparing for the 4-8 inches of snow that we are expecting this weekend. Plus, on Sunday, it will be a nice balmy 0 for a high with -14 expected as the overnight low.

We had one of those white wire shelves in the garage. Last week the supports gave away and everything on the shelf fell down .. onto our new car. Now we have our first tiny dent. I spent the week hunting for garage cabinets -- nice soft plastic resin ones that won't hurt the car.

Good heavens girl! You will be very glad when 2017 comes in. How is your mama doing?

Mom is healed, walking beautifully, and enjoying all the safety features on her new car, especially the back up camera. She's still having problems with getting insurance to cover medical bills. It's complicated.

Sigh. Isn't it always. My daughter got notice of her disability payments. There a small fraction of her wages. However I'm glad she's up and around and doing better. I love a back up camera.

Don't know how much walking she's doing. Friends in Oakland provided a wheelchair. The service was posted for today but it was actually last night, sort of an underground the Morial service. Not want to press there.

Oh dear. I've been wondering if you're ok. Are you warm enough? Do you have a cat with you to curl up with? Next year has to be better!

Hope so. I'm heading off to bed soon I have a heater in my bedroom it's getting too cold downstairs. Nobody died so that's good. I'm gonna take my little fuzzy baby with me.

Frustrating week since I burned my hand. Everything else is going well though. Just difficult to do everything with only one hand.

I've had enough snow. And I applied for a graphic design job which would pay much better than the job I have now. Looking forward to Christmas though.

Took some days off, been working out a lot, went to see my mom play cello in an orchestra affiliated with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, waiting for my two oldest sons to get home next week. Can't wait.

Pretty much. Lots of studies have concluded as much. Here's an article about one of them. religionnews.com/2015/07/02/5-reasons-why-mormons-are-happier-says-researcher/

I'm probably happier than most because I have an exceptionally positive outlook on everything except politics and I don't let that affect how I feel. . 🤣

Hi okie!
As you know, my dad is a car collector. Every year he goes to the Barrett Jackson car auction in Scottsdale. This year, he's selling four cars. Then, from there, they go to southern Ca home.
I've been doing all the driving for him the last 6 months and tried talking him out of going but he's stubborn.
