Ok, been a little bit since I said anything about what's going on here at home. We are putting my brother on a train Friday to go see his daughter and grand daughters in the Salt Lake City area. I'm going to have to drive about 12 hours round trip to get him to the one station where he can board and not have any changes. After much deliberation, I figured that would be the best alternative. Not as much security to deal with, and with just a single train to ride, no lost baggage, I hope, not getting confused about where to go next or when, and no wondering if he missed any connections.

He will have a lot of oxygen, but that won't be a problem, hospice in Salt Lake will have the oxygen machine waiting for him when he gets there, and I GET A TWO WEEK VACATION FROM HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!! One other god thing, it will cost less this way than if we tried to drive out there and back. Round trip will only be about 220 bucks. Plus meals and snacks on the train, but still, not near as many headaches for either of us this way, and way cheaper.

Now for the bad news. This month was catch up with the electric co-operative we have out here, so all the sudden, not only do we have our regular bill, but the make up to stay on budget billing, or level pay. Over 800 bucks worth, and we got propane last month, so this month it had to be paid. 445 bucks more gone. And that most joyous of things this time of year, income tax hit me. Not as bad as I was figuring, but still bad enough. And, to top everything off, I can't get my vehicle inspected till I can get that damned service engine lite to turn of, and stay off. And without the inspection, I can't get it tagged. Fortunately, his vehicle is running, the plates are good for another couple of months, so guess I’ll be driving that for a bit.

So, I guess life is being it's usual self. Things aren't glass smooth by a long shot, but at least it isn't the storm it could be. Money is tight as usual, but we'll get by. I may even manage to get the house cleaned up, mostly, just out of boredom. And I hate house work.

anybody wanna cum keep me company while i have the house to myself?

Hey, I don't know what kind of vehicle you have, but my 2006 Taurus has an exhaust system light that has a tendency to come on if I don't turn the gas cap enough times before I lock it. Pain in the ass and used to scare me when it would come on. But I found the trick to get it off is to take off the battery cable off the positive post on the battery. Let it sit for 20 min and then put it back on. Resets the computer and the light goes out! Might be worth a try!? Good luck and enjoy your "vacation"!
