My dear Babe, this guy is certified crazy! When you want him there he is nowhere in site and when you kick him out he is there working uninvited. You have been more than patient and more than kind (dinners, letting him stay) and I am sure you pay him well too. I would just tell him that you are firing him, don't want to see him on your property and will not pay him for any work he does.

And if that doesn't work, let me know and I will come and chase him away with my walker!

Seriously, you don't need this hassle. I am sure there are other handimen around who would be more reliable and are looking for work.

What do you mean painting the fan blades you bought?

Stacy, you WILL find the right job for you - just believe in yourself as we all do. And don't panic that you are unemployed, now you have more time to concentrate on looking!

And it's the truth! If this was the job you were meant to have, you would have it, but something better is in the works. Remember what I said about His timing. I'm praying hard sweetie.

I cannot believe it! I have had the weirdest possible week and I just saw .... a mouse in the house! We aren't supposed to have mice until the first frost, are we? I did see some harvesting going on around but, ****ed it all.

First of all, my husband had a nightmare Tuesday night and hit me. I grabbed my dog and came downstairs to sleep. Then I accidently ran into an ages-old romantic affair. I don't want to be int he middle of someone's affair, I really don't. Then, on my way to exercise class I slipped on the wet grass, fell down the hill and under my (parked) truck. There were a lot of odd little things like this that happened all week.

So I'm sitting here and looked over and ... a mouse. I did not need that this week. Really.

What a horrible week Claire! I hope you have a good weekend and that next week is much better! BTW, around here mice start showing themselves right at harvest time.

I started dusting , hubby starts in on me about not doing the job right. grrr. If I start doing something, he has to have a comment. He says dusting should be done with the shop vac , otherwise the dust is flying all over the place. He dragged the stupid shop vac into the living room and starts dusting off the furniture. So I sit down and what does he do ?? he turns off the stupid machine and sits too. If I sit, he sits, if I start a chore , he interferes or tells me I am doing it wrong. He is really getting on my nerves.

I got off my chair and started cleaning windows, now he is back to work , using his shop vac, removing dust from ceilings and walls. .
The man is dangerous with the stupid shop Vac ! He just broke something of my knick knack shelf.
I think my BP shot up, feeling dizzy, pressure in my chest.
