Love my Crazy life

I am so frustrated! We ordered a new refrigerator and cook stove this spring. As with everything right now, there was a wait, which wasn’t a big deal to me at the time. Well, my appliances went to the shipper at the beginning of July and are still...

 

Love my Crazy Life

Now that the pool is closed, you would think I wouldn’t be so busy. Well think again. This summer, Jacob bit off a little more than he could chew by taking on four yards to mow along with our two yards that he is supposed to mow. With school and...

 

Love my Crazy Life

The pool is closed for the season. The last days are always bitter-sweet. On the one hand, I’m glad it’s over. It can be a frustrating job. On the other, I am going to miss my guards and my pool rats. Some are off to college, and I will only see...

Love My Crazy Life

Love My Crazy Life

I’m always joking that I will drive a car until the tires fall off. Well, folks, I almost did that very thing. I knew the tires were fairly worn but was hoping to get through a few more months before I had to replace them. We took the car in for...

Love My Crazy Life

I can’t believe we are at the end of July already. Where has the summer gone? Oh wait, I know, I’ve spent it running around like a chicken with its head cut off. This past week Jacob went back to Dad’s for another short visit. One tank of gas....

Love my crazy life

First and foremost, I have a mistake I need to correct. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about the Fourth of July events in Oak and made a mistake. I said the pastor’s name was Keith, it is not. It is Kevin Bogus, and I know this. I often...

Love my Crazy Life

By Teraesa Bruce This week I am writing to you from the pool. With the fair beginning and half of my guards off to church camp, I am short-staffed, so I am down here “managing” things. Working at the pool is like that dream, you know the one,...

Love my crazy life

We had a busy weekend with all of the holiday festivities. Friday, we were in Oak for the Fourth of July block party and pot luck. I took a cake made by the women at Caps Cafe. Time got away from me like it always does, and I forgot I needed to make...

Love my crazy life

Just another busy week in this house. Robert is on leave and has been home since Tuesday. I had thought he wasn’t coming home until Thursday evening, but plans change. My house is somewhat clean and put together. I have my dads to thank for that...

Love My Crazy Life

This past week felt like two! Besides the regular day-to-day, we managed to have a couple of hours to catch up with some friends and continue cleaning up the garages. Thursday, I drove to Kansas to pick up Jacob from his dad with two of his friends...

Love my crazy life

This weekend was exhausting. We cleaned out the garages at the money pit and started on our storage shed. For months they have been a catch-all and dumping ground for the family. We decided since we could not find any of our tools, it needed to be...

Love my crazy life

We turned on the air conditioner the other night. It seems I will not get much of a reprieve from the freezing temperatures. The hubby has the thermostat set to “Meat Locker!” Outside of the house, I wear a tank top and shorts, and inside I wear...

Love my crazy life

A friend of mine asked me how many hats I would be wearing this summer, and I couldn’t answer. In the last week, I served as a painter, photographer, babysitter, pool boy, quasi reporter, caregiver, manager, a crummy housewife and neglectful...

Love my crazy life

My crazy life

I am so thankful school is out this week. Like so many others, my son is ultimately over it, and I am over having to motivate him. He has a couple of summer jobs lined up, and I hope a paycheck is enough to keep him moving. I’d like to have at leas...

 

My Crazy Life

I got the taxes done, and we got our refund. Yay! We paid off a debt that has been weighing on me for almost a year now. I can’t tell you how good that felt. We even had money left so we decided to see if we could get some things we need, like...

My Crazy Life

My baby attended his junior prom Saturday. How time flies! He looked so handsome and grown up in his tux. It’s hard to believe he will be a senior next year. I’m not sure if I should be getting the baby photo’s out and crying or celebrating tha...
