Annoying Neighbors Cooking Crocheting Inside NoVA Moving rat bastard Repairs

Sad News Indeed!! 11/18/2012

Manassas News & Messenger and Inside NoVA.com, top Prince William News Sources, closing down.  Rat Bastards!   There goes our only LOCAL news source.   Inside NoVA on Facebook has over 26,000 followers.  I sure hope that they find a way to keep that part going.  We sure depend on it.  Many times we have gotten info when it stormed as to road closures, roads flooding, trees down ect.  It never failed, when we had questions, some one would have the answer.

Look what I saw when I opened my curtains this morning….

Seems that my OTHER neighbors with high pitch, screaming little kids, two doors down are moving out.   Whooohooo!  If this keeps up, I’ll have nothing but grown up neighbors.  Wouldn’t THAT be awesome come spring.   LOL, I’m just dreaming.

I’ve got a couple of projects going on this week.  I’m working on a scarf hoodie combination.

The other project is repairing a few holes in the wall downstairs.  I have moved all my belongings from the downstairs living room  into  my bedroom for the winter, so this will be the perfect time to fix that room.  I’ll do a little painting and maybe paint that butt ugly concrete floor.

I put on a crock pot of black-eyed peas before I left for work.  They ought to be tender by the time I get back.  I’ll have to see what I have  to add to it to give it some flavor tonight.

Annoying Neighbors Car Chases Cornish Rex Field Work heat Keeping Warm laughter Sandy spam

Heating Problem Fixed 11/02/2012

I went and got a heavy-duty 15 amp extension cord and exchanged it with the one  was using.  The Lasko heater is 15 amp.  This extension cord does not get hot, so I’m feeling much better about using it.  I’m cozy warm in my room and the breaker is not tripping anymore.

My “trash can always at the front door, car alarm going off all hours of the night, cursing screaming little kids, toys all over the street, outdoor living room loving, loud talking in the middle of the night,  annoying neighbors”  have moved out.  I am such a happy woman!   I already feel sorry for their new neighbors.  I’m hoping for a set of nice quiet neighbors with well-behaved kids, to move in next.

One of my clients emailed me that they did not want me to chase anything until further notice due to Sandy up and down the east coast.   Well, another client apparently doesn’t give a lovely, and sent me on two chases yesterday and two today.   I was in a highrise apartment building, in an elevator.   This is the sign posted. …

It thought it was so funny.  You couldn’t fit 21 people standing on top of each other triple stacked in this elevator.  What were they thinking?

Every night when I get home, I get greeted by Silly when  I get in.  I’m pretty sure that she knows the sound of my car.   For the first 5 minutes she is steady talking to me…probably cursing me out for being gone so long.  Then it’s a race upstairs to my bathroom where she patiently waits for me to come and turn the faucet on.  She is such a trip!!

 

Teri at Curlz and Swirlz….Life with Cornish Rex cats, and a Sphynx named Disco NoFurNo put up a Halloween video….she and her cats.  LOL  The Monster Mash….Curly Swirly Type.  Thanks for the giggle, Teri 🙂

I’m so very happy with WordPress.  It caught 53 spam comments and I didn’t even have to do anything.  I am going to check and see if all of them are truly spam….yep, they are spam.  Spell check is pretty awesome too.  Much better than Blogger.  I wish I would have made the switch a long time ago.
