This 'n' That

I spent a lovely day at the Texas DPS office (for the second time) trying to get my license replaced.  After hours of listening to the mixed up numbers that they give you (since they don't want anyone to leave during their 3 hour wait), they finally called my name 15 minutes before they closed, took my money, and took my picture.  Now I can legally drive again.

I stopped by the corner store on the way home to get some boxes so Sharon can move.  She found a house to rent off of FM 1488.  She's getting the address now so we can look up the utility companies for her to have her utilities turned on.  She should be moving in a couple days.

Mom has forgotten some things since the stroke and she blows litte things out of proportion.  I guess that's to be expected after someone has a stroke, but it can be annoying.  She's also become controlling, acting like I'm a kid or something.  I wanted the keys to go take a couple puffs off of my cigar.  She kept telling me no and wouldn't give them to me.  Them calling numbers out of order had her griping the whole time.  By the time I finally got out of the DPS station, I was about ready to strangle her.

While we were in Conroe, I decided to get a set of strings for each of my guitars.  I'm going to see how the Martin extra lights do on the acoustic electric.  I seem to have lost some of the strength in my fingers, so these may help if they still give a decent sound.

The kittens are getting bigger and they're a bundle of energy now.  When they're not fighting with each other, they're exploring the furniture and seeing how hight they can climb up the bookcases and entertainment center.  Every time they jump up on the desk, I take them off, though.  Last night one of the kittens jumped on my keyboard and wiped out a whole blog.  It made me want to explore ALL the ways to skin a cat!  haha

I don't know if I'm going to be able to keep the Space Eagle Productions site up.  With all the extra expenses I've had and the rising price of food and utilities, I may have to let it go, as much as I hate to.  If so, at least I still have this Multiply site.  I just can't set up pages here for different individuals.

I still need to take my new computer in to see if they can do anything with it.  I'll have to wait at least until next month because I'm still trying to recover from my wallet being stolen.  At least it looks like we'll be able to afford the utilities this month.  The light bill is more in line with what's normal than it has been the past several months.  I think they were severely screwing us over.

Not much else for now.  I'm busy offline, though, so I probably won't be online as much the next few days.  I still need to finish digging up the grass to extend the garden.  It's been so hot lately, though, that I think it would be dangerous for me with my pacemaker not working properly.  I never thought I'd have these problems at 55.  I figured they'd hit me in my late 60s or early 70s.  Ah well.  My grandmother always said the smart ones die early.  I guess playing dumb didn't help me much physically.

Love, Hope, Peace, & Christ Is With Us All,
