**it Happens

743_1This morning it happened…..the ugliness of the septic tank back up…..ick! One flush, one plunge followed by the gurgle in the bathtub…well I knew it was coming and yet I was still surprised. The company I used last time was bought out when he retired and the new people wanted $300.00…whoa! I found a family owned business, a husband and very sweet wife that only charge $150.00 which is about right. It is done and over with and the next time it needs done….I won’t be here! In the here and now, it is one less thing that I have to worry about.

I finally am cooking down 1/2 of the remaining tomatoes (I froze the other half), I put in pieces of whole garlic and a whole basil plant….I can strain later. I love a good experiment….IMG_0080

I am determined to finish True Grit tonight and watch the movie, although the kids took the Wii out of the living room and I have absolutely no idea how to use the xbox controller, grr….. Then I remembered that I have the laptop and the Iphone, I am still learning that I have options in this world. Options are just one of the things that I am grateful for in this life……Zia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.

    I feel bad now that I was the one that prevented you from finishing the movie. I hope it was worth it.
