ROFL...I loved this tube but don't like what I did with it that well to put it in my graphics journal so I threw it in here. 

Now, frustrations are still around but I've decided that they are just coming in a series and should slow down.  hehehehe...yeah right.

My AC didn't get fixed today because Sears sent one guy out even though I called Friday and Saturday to make sure the orders were written for two.  He got here and was a tiny little guy and flipped.  So.......they "promised" to have two guys out here between 8 & 9 tomorrow.  Actually, I wasn't all that upset because I could legitimately take another vacation day.

Joey and I hit the pool at noon.  There was a pretty heavy cloud cover.  We had a couple of hours of off and on sun.  Then it rained but dang it was steamier afterwards.

Adding insult to injury, the power steering felt like it crapped out in my beater car on the way to Walmart yesterday.  I'm to the point now where I just almost have to laugh.  I knew this was coming.  I've been adding fluid for a couple of months now.  I had a power steering hose replaced three years ago.  My mechanic said at that time the pump was on its last legs so I consider myself lucky (ok I tell myself I'm lucky) it lasted as long as it did.  I haven't even looked at the car today.  I don't want to deal with it now but I suppose I should get my BF over here to test run it so I can get it scheduled if need be.

I've had some chats with Megan.  Last night was not a good time so I did it over dinner tonight.  For some reason Eat N Park has a corporate manager there now.  He works double the amount of waitresses so their tips have been cut in half.  She is only making $50 at most instead of close to $100.  This started two weeks ago, and none of the servers are very happy about it.  We discussed the car and my reservations.  I told her she couldn't afford gas for it right now, among other things that bother me about the car.  It seemed to sink in, at least I hope so.

I would say all in all I've been pretty lucky with my finances until recently when everything started to go one on top of the other.  It seems things happen like that.

Hopefully, my darned air conditioner will get fixed tomorrow before I get a sledge hammer and pound it out of the wall.  I did tell the manager of the service dept. at Sears that I was going to do that if it's not fixed tomorrow.  LOL... I told her they can come pick up their compressor and AC and either refund me my money or replace the whole unit.  Should be interesting but seriously if no one comes tomorrow, I do want the whole thing replaced.  It's three years old and been out of order more than its been running.

I'm hoping the sun will be out more tomorrow and no rain.  Of course, Wednesday is supposed to be the best day for sun....hmmmm....extended vacation sounds good to me.

I did get postcards from Sugar and Deb....hugs....I'm so disorganized and out of it lately, I haven't gotten around to even buying any.  I'm terrible...sheesh   Megan was really excited about it.  She brings the mail in and was fascinated by the whole postcard thing.

Have a good evening....I think the old "CAB" is back in the house again.........

Too bad you can`t take a sledgehammer to the car and get it replaced too, huh?
You sound a little less stressed this entry.
Good luck with the A/C.
Hugs,
Penny

I just loved your Miss Piggy tag; I thought it looked great myself :) Glad to hear CAB is back to feeling her old self. Its a shame about Megan's place of work; seems like a greedy situation on the part of the manager if you ask me. On the other hand, glad to hear that you had a good chat with Megan and hopefully some of it stuck with her in decisions made.

enjoy your extra day off and I do hope Sears is there bright and early in the morning. (for their sake at least, LOL)

Hi Chris,
YIKES!  They still don't have your AC fixed???  I think I'd be getting a bit upset about it, if i were you!!   At least you have the pool to hang out in!  I LOVE to swim, and I'd love to have my own pool, but I'd want it to be somehow made so I could swin in the winter too.  Like have a roof that rolls back & walls that drop into the ground in the summer, then the walls & roof goes back up in the winter.  That sounds so cool, doesn't it???  ha ha ha ha!  My imagine at its finest!  NOT!  Hope you are able to keep extending your vacation!  That sounds like lots of fun!

Love & Hugs, Linda

Glad your feeling a little better about things.  The steering pump is about to go in my convertible.  My hubby tells me to drive it until it does.  Always something.
