Long Day Takes It's Toll

Today was long and busy around here. Trucker and I went back to our bank where our mortgage is being held and found out our info has been forwarded on to the main bank for possible??? maybe they will and maybe they won't consideration of refinancing us after all. We are trying to remain positive but are not holding our breath either. After all we are both way to young to die.

After that project was completed on our parts we then headed out for more errands. I hate buying groceries!! I hate it so bad. I don't really know why but I do. Maybe it's because feeding a family of four is so damned expensive. Also maybe because I also hate to cook. I used to love cooking and actually looked forward to trying new recipes. Now however I am married to a meat and potatoes trucker.
Seriously if I never served anything to him but a huge chunk of red meat again the man would die happy. Die early but quite happy. The Rug rats want nothing but instant potatoes night after night when they are here. I have no fun planning any cooking anymore. I long for the days of trying new foods, delights for my taste buds. OK, I must stop now I am hungry and no one is home but me. So no cooking again. OK, not going to complain about not having to cook. ha ha.

After leaving our life savings at the Save-A-Lot I decided to go with trucker for the rest of the day. We headed out in the semi to Holly Spring, MS. Only about one hour from Memphis, TN. It was a nice ride, bouncing along jarring your guts out, but nice. I finally got trucker to laugh some and take his mind off life for a bit. This made the bouncing, jiggly stinky semi ride worth it.

Now I'm beat. I think I will go crawl into my bed boo hoo alone again, trucker stayed out to make up some time, and maybe watch the CMT music awards. Or what's left of them anyway.

I leave you with another tired member of the family. He plum tuckered out doing his homework tonight. Poor little fellow worked so damn hard. He better make an A on his assignment.

I hear ya! For years all I made was what the kids & hubby wanted. Where's the fun in that? Luckily, my daughter has always liked the things I like. In other words, she has excellent taste.

What a cute picture. When I was growing up, years ago, my father was a trucker driver so I fully understand the rattling old semis of which you speak.

Thanks for stopping by my site.

I hate grocery shopping also. It seems such a waste to spend all that money on something that is going to end up in the sewer system anyway!

You're kitty's so cute!

I'm very fortunate to have a husband who will eat anything I make. Sparky's a little more picky, but not too bad. I know it really takes the fun out of cooking when you can't get creative. :(

I actually love grocery shopping. Other than garage sales, it's the only kind of shopping I enjoy.

I love riding in semi's you can look down into the cars that you are passing and see what's going on in them! Did your kitty get an A on his homework assignment?
