Today, I'm the housewife!


The hunter is gone and the kitchen and laundry are MINE! Sat. I watched Stephen King movies and shopped the goodwill store. Manager to spent over $50 but then,........I am a professional shopper. Got some stuff to make spooky Halloween things to hang on the porch. Crystal is shiny and wants to live at my house. I am kind enough to allow it to. So anyway, you all know how brave I am, but I have to say, watching Stephen King (plus I am reading another book of his,) when I am alone, would be ok except there always seems to be these odd noises. I feel unsettled for a bit but recover quickly by telling myself some lie about the noises. That evening there was a loud noise which I heard but ignores. Finally went outside when I saw flashing red lights. All the neighbors were out congregating on the sidewalk. Turns out is was some kind of explosion? In a vehicle? I haven't gotten all the facts yet but it was kind of weird.
Sunday (yesterday) I felt worse than Saturday but I watched the stupid Hallmark channel. Cried. You know, they should call it the fairy tale channel cuz all that love and kindness, concern and caring have nothing to do with the real world. It's all fantasy. I gave up on life and went to bed just after 7pm. Didn't sleep the best but got up at 4am. So, I've taken care of the dishes and brought stuff in from the car and put stuff away and I have laundry going to hang out on the line. Will be going to my daughters' around noon. She was scheduled a 12 hour day and managed to work 10 of them before she had to leave. Didn't feel well. I guess if I knew my house was being foreclosed on in two weeks, I'd be wanting to just hide under the covers. Wonder if her husband will man up and start taking care of some of this. Does any man take pride in taking care of his family. Does he feel the love and responsibility, the desire? Sounds like Hallmark channel again, doesn't it?
Well, today is another day, sunny and we'll just hope I have an enjoyable time with the grandkids and my daughter. Peace.
WALKING MAN - So,...have the holes in your nipples healed?
COFFEY - Not in denial. Just in deliberation. BTW I do love a man in uniform but even more so - half out of uniform!
C.B. - Only one side of my face, jaw, mouth hurt. If it was from that business in the alley, it would be my throat and tonsils that would be hurting. PS -the difference between a 10 and an 11? An 11 swallows!

I love Halloween. We decorate our whole house inside and out.

We buy one new thing each year. So then we dont spend too much.

I have some blogging friends and some RLF who have husbands who are pussies. Men just don't want to grow up anymore. I think the man’s parents should take care of him and his family till he does man-up. It's their fault he is a worthless piece of shit.

I totally don't like Halloween. Alex loves Halloween. He always gets dressed up in a costume and sits on the front porch to hand out candy.
