And yet you let them live CCL.


Doing nuthin'. I was busy yesterday, then woke up in the wee hours this morning because of a Charlie Horse in my thigh. It ached so much it took me so long to fall back to sleep I was considering just getting up for the day after three hours of sleep. I did run a couple errands (had to get wine for an alcohol rubdown tonight - it does work from the inside, right?) and made supper, so I wasn't a total slug.

It did make a yummy slaw! MW will now be in my refrigerator, at least whenever I plan on making coleslaw.

Right now DH is vacuuming. He just finished cleaning the kitchen and bathroom floors. Yesterday, he did laundry. And I sit here playing on the computer. Of course, I know why he does this. He wants to go to the casino. The answer is still NO! LOL

Although my mum is still alive (she is 94 and now in a good nursing home), I have been researching into funeral costs today (e.g. contacts and prices). This is in order to minimise the future stress and also because it involves agreement with my 2 other siblings (who have fallen out over disputing mum's will).

The greed for money brings out the ugly side of humanity. I no longer recognise my sister. Not being materialistic (I am spiritually focused), I have given them both most of my share but STILL they argue!

I am learning that disputes/wrangles over who gets what in a will causes many relatives to fall out. How sad it all is.

Dawglover, most libraries love to get donations of books. Our does several used book sales every year. I am one of their biggest customers, in more ways than one! LOL

That's a good thing to do. In our area at least, you save a lot of money by preplanning and prepaying. They really take advantage of those who show up the day of the death and need everything at the last minute.

I am yawning my head off. Maybe I'll go to bed early tonight. Yeah, fat chance. Three nights this week (so far) I've woken up three times during the night, each time an hour different from the last. Makes getting up really hard when the alarm finally goes off. IF I hear it, that is! Seriously, I'll probably be up for hours. My baseball game is on rain-delay. There aren't too many games left this year, and few chances to reschedule. Oh, and now it started up again! Gotta go cheer!
