Gosh!! What a wild ride I've been on since April!! It seems I had hit rock bottom and there was no way to go but up but the further down this unseeingly endless well, I kept on falling!! But not anymore!! Yippeee!! Ok, here's my updates.... Hearing aids - I'm still waiting for the approval letter to come in the mail. They needed more information which has been faxed to them already but this lady who does this thing says I'll be approved because our finances are well below the budget. Partials - My dentist said it would cost $680. for a new set and the old ones are unrepairable because they broke on the metal part instead of the pink area. My insurance won't pay for new ones because they're only a year old. They'll only buy new ones after 5 years. We found a man who's just starting out and it's all he does which is make dentures so he's making me a new one for, guess how much!!! $200.!!!! How awesome is that?!?!?! I'm ecstatic!! They should be ready either this Friday or Monday! Yippee!! Our Air Conditioner went out downstairs, upstairs is on a separate unit so we've had to basically live upstairs however, the bathrooms and kitchen are all downstairs. It was just too darn hot to cook so we've had to eat out for the past week and a half because by the time I would've finished cooking, I would've lost my appetite so that's a no go so out we went. Anyway, we got our new unit and it's installed now!! We have A/C once again and we had our first meal last night since it went out and oh so good it was!! Our insurance company has paid for the new unit as well as getting a big chunk of change back from the gas company because we converted our heat from gas to electric heat pump which will save us money in the long run!! I finally bought my favorite tree which is the Weeping Willow Tree. I haven't planted it yet for we have to be very careful in where we put it because it loves water and the roots will follow water where ever it is and we don't want it to tangle up in our septic field or our well. ARG!! I want it in front of my house darn it!! lol but I know it can't be but at least I have one finally!! I got a great deal on it too!! I only paid $19.00 for it!! I can't believe the good luck we've been having as of late and hope it continues to keep going this way!! Tomorrow I'm going to clean my house from top to bottom and then Friday I'm going to my parent’s house to clean theirs. Mom is still dizzy and can't write still so I'm going up there to help her out. I know it'll make her feel so much better once it's done. I know I'll feel better once mine is done so I know how she feels. I've been off and on mylot for a while, has anybody missed me? LMBO!!

Hi ElicBxn.... Gosh I thought I was at rock bottom until someone would say or try to say for I'd put my hand over their mouths, "what else will go wrong?!" for something always did go wrong when that was asked!! lol Regardless if it was karma or what ever, things have turned around for the better and I couldn't be happier!! Thanks!!

Well it sounds like the sun is shining for you at the moment and long may it continue to shine for you. I bet you are feeling so much better for just having those few things go your way! I love willow trees, they are a beautiful tree and I can understand why you would want one, I love them too, mind you I love most trees!

Oh gosh yes!! After going through pure hell for the past 5 months and now things going our way is such a blessing!! What a great feeling!! Whew!! I, like you, love most trees except the pine tree. I can't stand a pine tree because they're so distructive to the ground. Grass has a terrible time growing under a pine tree. But I love the weeping willow!! lol

Of course I miss you girl, and that is why when I see a notification from you I go right there. I am glad that you are having good news now for awhile. It feels good to get things done.I have been thrilled to be able to pay off a bill or two, and when you have expenses, it feels good to cover them. Have "fun" cleaning. I know it feels really good when it is done. I will do some tomorrow.

Awwww thanks so much GG!! I've missed you too!! Really, I have!! Gosh living in a house with no a/c was a nightmare in this heat!! Can you believe, once it was installed and ready to turn on, the weather changed and turned beautiful? lol I told hubby, that's Murphy's Law!! lol But at least I can finally cook in my kitchen now. I don't like going out every night, I'd rather stay home. You have fun cleaning too!! I'll be thinking about ya!
