Wednesday Words - Ramsey

You don't want to have so much money going to your mortgage every month that you can't enjoy life or take care of your other financial responsibilities.

Dave Ramsey
A mortgage is not an issue for us right now and if it ever is again I definitely want it to be a small one. In fact that is the only way we will make that commitment again!

Road Trip

So the time had come to move our STUFF from point A (Louisiana) to point B (Nebraska). We will be in NE more than not as that is where Mr&Mrs Bud are so why not have our things there too? Right, sounds easy. Sure...

After securing a PENSKE rental truck in LA, loading it up and heading north, we stopped overnight in AR before landing in NE to unload and return the truck to MO. 

 Loading in LA

 My view for 750 miles!

 Bonus was seeing the kids and daughter cooking for us!

The daughter is now the keeper of the keys. Amazing that nearly every thing we own fits in this 10 X 20 x 10 space. Talk about downsizing, we certainly have. There are also some things of the daughters that she doesn't have room for in the apartment. There will be a few more things added as a few items are still MIA but believed to be in OK but there is still plenty of room for that. She will have plenty to fill that home she hopes to own someday!

And ohbytheway, who knew waiting in line for over an hour for the cheapest diesel fuel in town would be the most stressful portion of this trip. We drove from NE to MO to return the truck since that made the rental contract nearly $350 cheaper. And well, you know, I am most generally all about the cheaper. So we had to fuel up before we returned the truck and I checked my handy dandy gasbuddy for the best price and that was Murphy and that was where the line was since a farm type guy was there filling his 1000 gallon tank for the winter. 

Anywho, mission accomplished and we are thrilled to have that done! Now to file all the paperwork!

Moving on, is a simple thing, what it leaves behind that is hard.

Wednesday Words - Drake

This reminds me I should be saying less and doing more...easier blogged than done. The words are from a song sang by a guy named Drake.

Poison Ivy Update

Trust me I am itching! Oh yes! I'm still fighting this PI outbreak! No, I haven't gone to the doctor and I'm not planning to go. After all, I have consulted Dr. google more then once and since it is not near my eyes or unmentionables, not warm to the touch nor crusted with pus letting it run it's course is the recommendation. I'm good with that!

The itching, did I mention it itches. Yeah, well, it does and it is extremely annoying at night. I'm currently using vinegar on it. The calamine lotion which was good at first actually seemed to make it weep as the outbreak progressed. So I switched to the vinegar. Seems to help in drying it up. Keeping it clean and dry is key. So no sweating is good but hard since I cannot just sit around in AC! After all, the yard needed mowed, walls needed washed and flooring has to be installed.

Oh and I also have been taking a Zyrtec the last two days. I really think that has helped tremendously! I am thankful it is not worse than it is!! Seriously!

Took these pics last night after my shower.
