Out Of My Slump


Finally have gotten out of my depressive slump.  For a while there I didn’t feel like cleaning or anything.  Yesterday I did a complete 190 and cleaned my butt off.  I must say it felt pretty good to get it all done.

 I also had a 100 gallon propane tank installed yesterday.  They were here bright and early to get the job done.  It saved us quite a bit last year, so are hoping for the same result this year.  The only thing that upset me about yesterday and the tank, was that it only has 44 gallons in it, and I paid for 96.  They assure me they will be here on Monday with the rest, but I am not going to hold my breath.  I do have the papers saying it only had 44 gallon when installed though, so we will see what develops.


Thursday I had to get up at 4:00 a.m.  again.  My brother had to be at the Clinic in Carmel, In. no later than 6:30.  He had his other test, and I am glad, now that it is over with, that he did.  They did find a lot of colitis, and his Doctor thinks it may be causing his bleeding, therefore getting many more transfusions than he should be.  I hope they are right and can finally do something about it.  He is eating better, and has started putting weight back on.

After leaving Carmel, we stopped and had some breakfast  on Rockville road.  It was a Greek restaurant that we stopped at, but the breakfast was pure American.  The man that owns it is a Greek, and he is a very sweet man.  I have met him a couple of times, but his name escapes me.


Yesterday afternoon I finally had my carpets cleaned, and to say I am upset about the way they look, is putting it very mildly.  The reason I had them cleaned is because there was a couple of spots on them.  I usually keep up with it, but for some reason they got away from me, anyway, this is why I hired them, and the spots are still there.  The same with my couch.  I had it cleaned also, and the same with it.  I can’t tell they did anything to it at all.  Needless to say, I will never use this company again.  I am posting a picture of their truck, but will not give you their name.  I don’t think you can see it, and I don’t like bad mouthing anyone.


We have had a big change in our weather.  It started out with severe winds and rain a few days ago, and I guess that’s what brought our cooler weather in.  It struggled Thursday to reach the 50’s, and yesterday and today is only in the 60’s.  Been getting pretty darn chilly at night.  Last night it was down in the low 30’s, so we will be having a hard freeze any day now.

 We were invited to a big Weiner Roast tonight at my cousin, Charlotte’s house, but I told her I just really wanted some time to chill.  We started the day with breakfast out, then we had to hit a Lowes to get some tube insulation for our waterline, to keep it from freezing.  When it gets really cold, we also let the water drip.  In just a few days we will be adding our temporary underpinning.  It’s not pretty, but it sure helps the floor stay warmer.

Later in the morning we hit another produce stand.  This one was having a big Harvest Festival for the kids.  I don’t know what all they were doing, but we saw lots of kids running around.  We bought some fresh tomatoes and got the heck out of there.



Is anyone else having trouble leaving comments?  I have to try at least 4 times on some sites just to leave a comment.  On others it goes through the first time.  I am still getting complaints about people not being able to sign up to follow me too.  If anyone knows why this is happening, or what to do about it, please let me know.  Thanks in advance.


Want to welcome my newest follower, Mac.  I hope you enjoy the ride. I have been reading his blog for a few weeks and really like his quick wit.  If you get a chance, check it out. 


As you can see, our Park is really starting to clear out.  Back behind us, and to our side there are still a lot of RV’s, but usually the whole place is full.


Nothing earth shattering has been happening around here, just a lot of trips to the hospital, grocery, and that kind of boring thing.  So, I will catch you all later…. :)

I'm so glad your brother is getting better, but am sorry about the stubborn spots on carpet/couch!

Yes, at times I have problem leaving a comment in various blogs, it seems to me the connection is lost after I press 'post', but usually if I hit 'back' and re-post for the 2nd or 3rd time it'll go thru, same with "Follow It". Another problem I see is the Recent Comments gadget, it sometimes not showing the most recent comments until hours later. But, it's a free blog, I am not gonna complain!

After a few days of Indian summer, our days are at 50s high and probably low 40s at night, no frost yet and I don't look forward it.

Hope your mood will continue be better! :)

PS: Thanks for showing the pix of your RV park so I have an idea what they look like.

I don't have problems leaving comments on the blogs, but each one seems to work a little differently and some take a few "clicks" to get the job done. I've been told that sometimes it's hard to leave comments on my blog, but I don't know how to fix it.

It was good to read your update. Cleaning is always a good accomplishment, but not fun to do. Sorry about the carpet cleaning company doing such a poor job. I'm hopeful that the new diagnosis will solve your brother's bleeding problems. Take care of yourself, Pidge.

I was having a problem with "follow" buttons, too, and switched to another browser, and it worked. See my post for today.

It's no wonder you've been down. Lots going on with your brother and that has been keeping you so busy. I'm sorry about your carpet and couch. The last time I had my carpets done I was so unhappy with the result I went out and bought my own carpet steam cleaner. (Just another thing I'll be selling in a year or so. LOL)


Rod and Loyce Ivers said...

No problems with comments, but perhaps I should have some, as I am way too noisy on some of the sites!LOL

Stuff like not getting a full tank of propane and carpet not looking like it had been cleaned, just ticks me off. That kind of stuff is so aggravating.

Hopefully Uncle Boone will continue to feel a little better and put on some more weight.

Rick and Paulette said...

That's a really big propane tank. It's a good thing you don't have to haul that baby around! Hope they come and top it up on Monday.

Gail Durham said...

I'm glad you are out of your slump, and your brother is getting better. Stay warm and happy!

Gypsy said...

I think your brother looks pretty good, although you can tell he's lost weight from former pictures.

Everyone goes into a slump now and then, and it's okay!

Judy and Emma said...

I really like your new header! I think I'd maybe call that carpet cleaning place and complain! If you're out of your slump, how would you like to come and clean my rig? :)

Sam&Donna Weibel said...

I agree with Emma I would call and complain at the very least they should come back and address the stains, most places would do that. So glad to see your brother improving, too much sickness going on lately. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

Glad to hear your brother is doing better and hope he keeps it up. I will post a short blog on this later today when I get home from work but take a look at our web store

I am glad you are out of your slump. Things always seem to have a way of working out.
