Father's Day

We had a great Father's Day today.  We went over to our in-law's house after church to have a meal.  My stepson Steven and his wife Ashley came over as well.  My father-in-law smoked a brisket and barbecued some chicken, my mother-in-law made rice dressing and cornbread, my husband made a three bean salad and Ashley made red velvet brownies from scratch.  It was all good. 

They feed some stray cats and some of the cats had kittens.  They were so cute, I wanted to take one home.  Unfortunately, the pet deposit is insane in this place.  I know my stepdaughter wants one badly, so I'm hoping to buy a house in the next 2 years (hoping that we can move closer to a WELS school for the girls but it will depend on jobs) and then we won't have to worry about silly things like pet deposits.

I've had a bad cold all week.  I perpetual nose-blowing kind.  Body aches too.  Right before the cold hit, I started getting chest pains.  I was tested for an ulcer but that apparently was negative so they think it's some kind of reflux (left over from the wonderful heartburn I had during both pregnancies).

Also, let me take this opportunity to not recommend Centurylink.  We got them for DSL when we moved here.  We don't get the 6 mb that we pay for and to boot, they lost our first payment and cut our service off.  And their customer service department did nothing to help us.  We had to do the leg work to find our missing payment (I had paid in cash in a store, but I got my receipt).  Next week I have to call them back to complain about our service again and to make sure they're not charging us reconnect fees or late fees.


  1. It's crazy how high pet deposits are. Espec for a cat that would use a litter box!

    Sorry about your cold. Had that virus myself. Still coughing 2 weeks later but feel MUCH better. Get well quick!

  2. Hope you are feeling better!!!
