I don't do mornings (AND HE KNOWS THIS)

Good Morning! I haven't updated in awhile but I have some great things going on. I have a Mary Kay Andrews House Party date set thru my House Party site. If you get a random email from me inviting you to party and your are states away I had to fill my invite list so they would pick me. I got 10 soft copies of the book. If your reading this message me and I'll send you one of them just for reading my blog. Cracks me up, like I think someones gonna read it.

Well, spring is supposed to be here but after a week of warm weather and rain today its supposed to snow. Isn't that something, snow in April. Is anyone going to watch the eclipse tonight?


I think I will be asleep thru this one. I usually try to get out and really look at them thru the binoculars but this one is going to happen to late at night for me to really enjoy it.

Yesterday was the Moose Lodge ramp dinner. Bub (my SO) dug a whole bulging onion sack of ramps. Here are the ramps that we got clean. It took us 3 hrs to clean these.After we got done we had 10 1 gallon bags stuffed full. They sold for $20, bagged and cleaned. They went like hot cakes in a few hours of the afternoon.


The weekend of the 26th is The Feast Of The Rampson 2014 in Richwood WV. If you haven't tried them they are close to a leek or a wild onion. The smaller they are the better I like them but these have "tops" on them. Hard to believe they grow wild here and have put our little one red light town on the map. The woods are full of them. They aren't easy to dig but sure are worth it when you fry them in bacon grease with potato's, eggs and bacon. Make some cornbread and brown beans. YUM! They make great breakfast casseroles too. You can have them pickled, made into salt, eat raw or cooked. Just don't make kissing or work plans. The little buggers stick with ya. Literally. 

Well, I have some news. I don't know how I feel about it. I haven't told anyone because I though it was in Hunters best interest to just let him do it but he hasn't. My son had an open place about the size of a quarter on his spine when he was born. He has a surgery and it closed up. He has had to have a cat scan every year to make sure its all good underneath there. Well, he graduates this year and he had decided he was going to the Navy. He cant now. Dr. Schmidt at CAMC said he could go, then changed his mind. Now my son has no clue what he wants to do and isn't putting that much thought into it. He has a job but I don't want this one little bump in the road to affect the wonderful and prosperous life that is in store for him. You know the kind, "I was going to the Navy but couldn't so I decided to drink the rest of my life instead" He's my son. I want whats best for him. He got a promotion at his job at the new Foodland store in Cragisville. More hours, more responsibility, I am proud of him.

School will be out before long and then my little one can come home. I miss Shane like crazy when he isn't here with me. I think it may get a little tough this summer. He is growing up and his daddy has a mind of his own. Sometimes things just don't go smoothly. Just don't make it so damn hard, how about that?

It's still morning out but its dreary and overcast. I got up in a not so nice mood. Let me ask you something. When your SO, BF, Hubby, ect, whatever, gives you money the night before, falls asleep in the chair and doesn't speak or say goodnight but comes busting in my room (we have separate rooms, he SNORES and to keep from smothering him at night I sleep separate from him) at 8 am (knowing I don't sleep well at night, and sleep very lightly in the a.m) this morning and needs his cash back. Why did you give it to me? Said he asked me to hold it for him until this morning. He did not. That's an excuse because you fibbed to me. (I caught him) I went on my Ebay and Listia last night and said I would mail everything today and now I have no money to do that. He just walked thru the door. Maybe things will look up and he wont make a big fibber out of me after all. Sometimes our lives are not as perfect as Facebook or Pinterest makes them look. All healthy relationships have ups and downs. Its what you those ups and downs that makes a difference. We don'f fight or argue too often but he just rubbed me the wrong way this morning. Sorry to turn this into a post to vent. I didn't mean to put my business out there like that for everyone to read but I think everyone has a relationship like mine. Strong and lasting, just up and down here and there.
Well, I am going to close this out and I'll be sure to update later. My SO and I have to have a long talk. I hope there are no tears. (on his part, lol)

I hope someone fills your day with love & laughter.
