At Rest....not so much...

I was going to take the entire day off, yesterday...but... John had decided...it was time...to get a satellite dish..we had talked about it, for years....yesterday....turns out...was the day... the Dish Guy, said he could be here at 2:30.... or later, in the week.... I knew how much John wanted this...so... I said....come on...
Then....I looked at the house...as I hung up the phone...
I have been gone...for a week.... and wasn't doing anything, here, for several weeks, prior....toooooo busy... so...I threw it into high gear...and got cleaning....
I don't let anyone in the house....when it's a mess...{I don't know why I freak out...so much.......my friends don't care...{Liz says, those that matter won't care...those that care...don't matter...but it's a phobia of mine...and...I Never care...what someone else's house is like...I prefer...'cozy'...to 'cold'... and what I may call passable...is probably a Mess...to a lot of folks...but...it is...what it is...} and...it's not like I could shut a door....this guy had to even go into my BEDROOM!!!! oh my gosh...I had packed at the last minute for Nashville... Clothes...EVERYWHERE!!!! The litter boxes...were smelly.......{I called John...and said.."Clean Them..."...} I don't ever ask him to do that... but...I was Running!  I threw open the windows...to let some fresh air in....and got busy....
The house is far from clean....but...it was passable...and...it's nice to have my Bedroom picked up...
I thought...after that....I needed a 'Mustang Fix'.... Sally needs brake shoes...so...I grabbed Jethro's keys...and bounced out the door...I was thinking...I'll Crank Up Adele, in Jethro's Awesome Sound System.... and Rod It....but....Jethro's battery was dead...{ I knew it had been getting weak...} it's pushing 5 o'clock...by then... so, I called Justin... he got Jethro in, for an installed battery, in town... so, Josh came up...and jumped Jethro... and away I went... to the wrong Auto Parts Store...{Jethro doesn't run well...with a bad battery...so I prayed...all the way there...I wouldn't let him die...and then be stuck....} so....I back tracked, to the other store....where they broke the battery clamp, that holds the battery secure...I stood in the cold..and watched them...for over two hours....it took 3 guys, to fix it... I felt so sorry for them...they were freezing...it wasn't their fault...the bolt had corroded....{I gave them a little extra...cash...for their trouble...they earned it...for sure...}
Tho, I don't eat meat...I had been craving BBQ...and we have a BBQ place, on the other side of C.R., so...I bopped across town... ahhh...I should have headed to Memphis... it wasn't what I had hoped...maybe, it's me...I had been craving Chinese...and had that, night before last...and...that wasn't what I had hoped...either...
A friend is popping by, today...to look at something I brought home, from Nashville... I have bills to pay...and bookwork...other than that....I don't know what I'm doing...so much...to do...I don't know what direction...to start...
I talked to Peg, yesterday...she sounds good...but...she's also back on steroids...I told her, this time, tell them to take a LONG time...to taper off..she said, they already said, that's what they are going to do....Sometimes...it takes our bodies along time, to taper off...and get our own steroids back in line...
She's almost halfway through her radiation treatments...three more weeks...
Peg said, all week, she had wished she had been with us...me...too...
Wanda is back, working in her shop, Gatherings, in Anamosa....Jo, is back to her Farm House....and settling in...safe, and sound...
Now...I need to get myself...pointed in a direction...
Hope you have a Lovely Day....
I'm going to get dishes done...
Love to Ya...

'At Rest'...'Asleep'....I have collected these plaques...for years... I unearthed...these while cleaning my bedroom, yesterday....ahhhh....and I know why... I crave them....Rest...ahhh...Sweet....Slumber...
{maybe...I'll find the recliner...and flip through the new stations...maybe...there is a Sponge Bob Channel..... that runs 24 hours....oh yeah...}

Saw your collection of casket plaques here.
We are remodeling our house and found a casket plaque in the wall. It comes with an extra piece - smaller that says Our Dear on it. Don't know what to do with it, so if you're interested, let me know.
