At Home Studying


Got up and gave dogs ham, along with Bud's painkiller. I need to call the Vet and get him more.

Went downstairs to clean up the kitties and let them out in the big room for the day. They really like coming out and sleeping/playing on the carpet.

The internet was actually working today.

Wilson barked at some truck down by the shop, so I drove down there. It was Ray trying to fix the box for Internet. I told him it was already working.

I paid bills today. Ordered lots of Xmas presents.

Studied for Mblex.

Made crappy store bought dough cookies and put M&M's on them. Had to throw them away because they came out of the oven all crusty, crumbly and over-done. Yuck.

Hubby got home late.

We went downstairs to play with the kitties and SOMEBODY had pooped in the corner. Had to clean it up. Yuck.

Went to bed at 12:00 after watching two shows of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries.

He made eggs for the dogs. We went downstairs to clean up the kitties and play with them.

Drove home.



Got up with hubby this morning. Hugged him goodbye with the dogs.

I started to get ready for my WoW today at AiCM, but when I took off my shirt, I discovered Ringworm on my back! So I had hubby come back from the shop and look at it. He put a band-aid on it.

I called AiCM at 9AM and talked to Christine, cancelled my appointment.

Texted Kim and told her I would meet her after her WoW treatment.

We walked Moby so he could potty.

We went to Fu-Ki to eat. It was fun. Kim & I were sitting at a table with a birthday party. Kim recognized the older woman as somebody she had trained with at Taco Bell.

Hubby came home about 5PM after working OT.

He had wanted to go down to Post Falls tonight to take parts there, but he was frustrated. He had loaned out the Forklift and it had been returned with no gasoline in it. Trying to do a favor and people take advantage. Assholes. So he had to fill the tank and use it to put parts on the trailer. After taking up too much time, he decided to stay home tonight and go to Post Falls in the morning.

Cleaned up the kitties and let them play in the big room around 8PM.

We watched People of Earth and went to bed at 9:30PM.

Internet Down


The internet has been down a lot this week, so it has been difficult to blog.



Went to Sandpoint with hubby to pick up parts. Then we stopped at Jalapeno's to eat dinner. Some magician was over talking with a mother and her noisy kids at a different table. There were not a lot of people at the restaurant.


Then we drove home.


Got up and fed the dogs; cleaned up and fed the cats.

At 8:00, I left to go meet Kim at Panera Bread in Spokane Valley. I had to get gas at Stateline first.
It was very cold outside, but the sun was partly shining.

Met Kim at 9:30. We got a table by the fireplace. Studied for over 2 hours. I purchased Souffles for us. Kim went up later and got a coffee. She had her dog, Toby in the car the entire time.

We left and shopped at HomeGoods. I purchased a dog toy and a coat for her dog for Xmas. Then we stopped at Krispy Kreme to get donuts because I thought hubby could take them to work tomorrow to celebrate being "#1" at work.

Went back to Kim's car at Panera and walked her dog. Then I gave her the inflatable Polar Bear that I had purchased from Walmart for her.


Got up, fed the dogs, cleaned up cats & fed them tuna.

Internet only up for a little while. I paid bills.

I washed my hair. Drove to Hayden to get nails done. Tracey put turkeys on my nails.

Drove to KR's to pick her up. She was walking Beebo when we pulled in to get her. Drove to Harley Davidson. There were hundreds of people there. We decided not to go inside. KR made reservations at Fu-Kì for 7:30. We had an hour to waste so went to Post Falls distillery. Liquor was highly alcoholized!

Dinner at Fu-Ki with Chris, the Chef

Then went to the restaurant. Had to wait 20 additional minutes for table. Sat with some really weird college age-heavy make up girls wearing thigh high boots. Very odd.

Had a great dinner. Food was delicious.

Drove KR home. We went home. Watched tv. Hubby fell asleep on the couch. Went to bed.

Sunday, November 13, 2016



Woke up at 7AM. We actually slept late!

Hubby made eggs for the dogs.

KR came at 9:30. Brought hubby a latte.

I was making more Souffle. One with bacon added and one with just cheese.

After they baked, I took them out to cool. Then we got the dogs ready for their walk. Drove to Farragut and walked on the Brig walk.

Then we came back and snacked on Souffle.


KR drove home. We drove to Post Falls to pick up hubby's motorcycle. However, it started RAINING. Hubby decided to leave it there for a while until there is a nice day.

We stopped at Pita Pit and got pitas, then we walked over to the new Health Bar and got organic coffees. They were great. Ate our lunch there.

Drove to CDA and picked up door handle for the basement bathroom hot water closet.

Stopped at the Car Wash to wash the Jeep.

Picked up dog food & cat food at North 40. They had a sale on dog food $5 off. Also picked up another spring for the cat toy.

We watched The Walking Dead. I really hate this show now.

Went to bed at 9:30. Hubby came to bed later.

Unloaded stuff.



Got up at 6AM. Hubby had already left. He & Tom were going to the TransAmerica Garage Sale today.

I fed the kittens and cleaned up their room. Let Momma Kat Koda outside to play. It started to rain.

I had to put the rugs that were still on the deck into the garage. Also had to take the garbage out to the garage.

Then the sun came out and it got warm.

I made Ham & Egg cups.

Gave a couple egg cups to the dogs.

Hubby got home at 11:30. He ate some of the egg cups. We loaded the dogs up into the Dually and took them to the Park.

Walked around the water tower because it was warm & the sun was out. Saw some hunters that were walking their dog.

Drove down to Bayview (hubby was on the phone to Nick from CN and had also talked to Tom before we walked the dogs) to get a latte for him. He came out with a drink that tasted like CIGARETTES & ASHTRAY. Yuck.

Got the mail. Mostly junk.

Hubby dropped us off, then went to work in the shop with Mark.

I put up Xmas lights around the garage and the decks.

 Lights Up

Then I made lunch. I was very tired from not eating.

Hubby came back at 4PM. I went outside to pick up garbage. Only got 1/2 of the frontage picked up because my knee was hurting so badly.

Hubby had loaded the garbage into the Dually. We drove to the Dump and then had to go to Spirit Lake to pick up some groceries. Hubby talked to Nick from CN Diesel again. Hubby picked up propane at the gas station.

I went to bed early.

Friday, November 11, 2016



Awoke at 6AM with hubby.

Fed the dogs some ham. Gave Bud his painkiller.

Got ready to take Bud & Ben into Apryl's Grooming. Left at 8AM with them in the Dodge.

Drove to CDA and walked them around the groomers to potty before I left them there at 9AM.

Drove over to Liberty Lake to Starbucks. Got there at 9:20. It was very busy there. I counted over 120 people there within 30 minutes, not including the drive-thru.

Kim finally arrived at 9:40. We moved to a bigger table because I had only been able to find a small table.

We studied for 2 hours. Took the MBLEX Book test that I had sent for thru FSMTB,

Then I suggested that Kim come with me to shop at Walmart at Stateline.

We walked her dog, Moby, around so he could potty. Kim had left him in her car the entire time with the windows rolled up. It was a nice cooler day.

I drove over to Walmart in the Dodge. Kim & her dog came with me. We shopped for grapes & Xmas lights. While we were in the store, Apryl called me to come pick up the dogs.

So I drove Kim back to her car and I drove to CDA to pick up dogs.

Drove home. Too tired to do anything else.

At home, Wilson was overjoyed to see his friends again.

Unloaded stuff from Walmart and then I took a nap.

Hubby came home late.

We watched TV and went to bed.


No Mail. No Banking.

Got up and fed dogs, fed cats & cleaned their room.

Tracey texted me to come in at 10AM. So I got ready and left early.

Got my nails & toes done in a gold color. I think I don't like it.

Drove over to Post Falls. Could not do banking because the banks were closed today.

Stopped at KR's to take down the Halloween decor on her front porch.

I put up the Polar Bear inflatable that I had purchased from Walmart yesterday.

Then I drove home.

At home, the dogs were happy to see me.

Hubby got home early. He did not want to go to the Post Falls shop tonight.

We watched TV and went to bed.

Wednesday, November 09, 2016



Got up at 6AM with hubby. Wilson slept with us all night. Ben came into our room and started playing with Wilson.

Hubby finally got up and ready for work. I put some cream cheese sausage pinwheels and bacon stuffing roll ups into a bag for his lunch.

He left and then I gave dogs some ham. Gave Bud his pain pill.

Remote control for the DirecTV satellite was not working, so I had to re-start the box and put new batteries into the remote.

Went downstairs to let momma Koda Kat outside and clean up the kitty room. Opened their windows & changed the litter.

Tuesday, November 08, 2016



Got up at 6AM with hubby. He was coughing all night. Told him to take Cold Calm.

I got up and fed the puppies. Went downstairs and took care of cleaning the bathroom for the kittens, changing litter, and feeding them.

Momma Kat Koda stayed outside for over 2 hours. I kept calling for her. She finally came back home and was on the outside back deck when I dumped some garbage. I opened the door; Ben did not see her, then he barked loudly because she scared him.

I took her downstairs and put her in the kitty room.

Did dishes.


Cleaned the floor.

Worked on catching up Blog.

KR called and purchased the new washer at Lowes for us. Hubby will pick it up tomorrow night.

The cats knocked down their tower. It made a loud crash. I had to go downstairs and clean up all the mess. They knocked over the water; soaked that up with towels.

Texted Kim all day long.

Hubby came home at 5:30. We went over to vote at Timberlake Senior High School. Ran into KR's old teacher, Mrs.Steele, from 4th grade.

We had to wait over 1 hour in line to vote. The volunteers were VERY slow.

I had left my Drivers License ID at the voting booth. Hubby brought it out for me.

Then we came home. Hubby had dinner. He had been getting hypoglycemic at the Voting Polls.

We watched a couple shows on TV, then went to bed at 10:30 after listening to the news.

Nobody could believe that Trump was leading over Clinton. 

Monday, November 07, 2016



Hubby was really tired and tried so sleep in when the alarm rang at 6AM. It was already bright as the sun had come up.

Wilson had already crept into bed with us in the middle of the night. I had gone potty while hubby pulled him up on the bed.

We came downstairs and dressed.

I started laundry and dishes right away.

Gave goodbye hugs with the dogs. Hubby left for work.

I went downstairs to clean up the kitties & feed them. Momma Koda Kat ran outside for a while.

Took down the Halloween lights and put up the blue Xmas tree lights that I had purchased yesterday.

At Noon with a load of towels in the washing machine, it finally "shit the bed". There is water all over the floor, but I don't know the extent of the damage because the washing machine is too heavy to move.

I contacted hubby and instead of paying the $295 service fee, we are going to buy a new one because they are only $599 on sale.

Started baking in the afternoon. Made Bacon Stuffing roll ups and Sausage & Cream Cheese roll ups.

I scheduled my MBLEX test for Dec 8. Very excited now.

It was overcast and slightly cold today.

Sunday, November 06, 2016



Hubby forgot to set his alarm. He woke up at 7AM and barely made it to work. They were having a meeting. LOL.

I got up and started laundry & dishes.

Gave the dogs ham & gave Bud his painkiller.

Went downstairs and cleaned up kittens, then fed them. We have to clean them this weekend. Their room is a mess. Let Koda Momma Kat outside for about an hour. Then let her back in again.

I started working on cleaning the floors.

Caught a wasp in a tissue & it stung me as I squished it. Threw it out the back door. By the time I came back inside, my right hand ring finger was swelling and red, itching.

I put the finger in an ice pack. Then I took 3 allergy pills.

Tried to pay bills online, but the internet kept going down.

I kept falling asleep because of the pills, so I went upstairs and slept the rest of the day!

I woke up around 4PM.

Hubby got home late because he worked OT, then he went to the Post Falls shop to work.

We ate dinner. I had a salad. Then we went to bed.


Got up and hubby fed the dogs eggs.

We took the dogs for a walk at the Frisbee Golf area. The sun was shining and it was warm out.

Hubby got an egg nog latte this morning. Stopped to dump the garbage before walking dogs.

We drove back home. Unloaded dogs.

Hubby went down to the shop to work.

I stayed home and worked.

Hubby came back at 3PM to pick me up so we could take the Harleys to the dealership for winter storage. But hubby did not want to store them there. He will bring his bike home and leave it in the garage.

So we took KR to Anthony's. It was the WORST RESTAURANT EVER.

The portions are so SMALL. My six scallops for $30 was so expensive, only a side of crappy white rice & some tasteless, bland squash that was not cooked correctly.. The scallops were tiny, burnt on the outside and almost raw on the inside. KR's sushi was burnt on the outside & raw on the inside. Hubby's crab cakes were GREASY. The waiter wrote down our order, but had some other guy bring it out. He would not return to our table to check on us, we had to ask the bus girl to get him over. After complaining and returning the two meals, NOT EVEN ONE of the THREE managers came over to apologize for the awful dinner. Then, THE STUPID WAITER BROUGHT OVER DESSERT MENUS. KR remarked, "Great, I haven't even eaten and you offer the dessert menu?" The waiter ignored her and rushed off. We finally got the bill and left. This place is a dump.

We then drove to Fu-Ki, but they did not have any room left. We drove to Olive Garden and ate there. KR & Hubby ate. I was already full.

Then we took KR home. I was too tired to go inside and take down her Halloween decor. We drove home. I was exhausted.

At home, Hubby took care of the kittens and we went to bed at 10:30.



Hubby woke up extra early at 5AM. We were supposed to sleep late because the clocks were set back 1 hour! But hubby woke up early and went down to the couch. I told him not to turn on the tv because it was still dark & I was sleeping.

Finally got up at 6AM and hubby fed dogs eggs.

Set our clocks back 1 hour.

We cleaned up the cat room. Put Koda outside, Zim taunted the dogs on the steps.

The rest of the kitties just stayed in the room while we cleaned & vacuumed.

I tried to find KR's snowboard boots downstairs & in the trailer, but no luck.

Took the dogs for a walk in the park. Hubby had gotten Egg Nog latte this morning.

We walked in the last campground on the left. It had been raining, but stopped when we walked. Blue skies came out when it cleared later.

Unloaded dogs at home. Hubby got busy power washing the deck. The slime on the wood was horrible and I was falling down.

Hubby had to go get gasoline because he ran out. He came back and finished at 1:30PM.

We left to go into CDA after hubby changed his wet clothes.

Picked up hubby's Dually at his work, then drove over to Walmart.

Stopped at Walmart to get a file cabinet, but they did not have a 4-drawer. So we did grocery shopping instead. I got blue Xmas lights.

We checked out and I was exhausted. We drove home.

Unloaded groceries at home.

Watched recordings of Stan Against Evil (I LOVE THIS SHOW), Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (I LOVE THIS SHOW) and the stupid, but everlasting The Walking Dead (WHY doesn't somebody put a bullet in Negan's head?)

Went to bed at 10:30 after early News.

Went downstairs to clean up the cats & give them breakfast. Let Koda kitty outside for a while.

The sun started shining today!

I had to return the boots that I got from Zappos last night. They are 2 sizes too small. They are cute, tho.

The purse that I got from Fossil is ok. I am not really fond of it.

Activated Hubby's phone accidentally so his phone that he has does not work now! Whoops. I called him on his work # and told him. Asked if he wanted me to bring his other phone to him.

He is working late tonight.

I vacuumed the upstairs and cleaned out the vacuum.

Hubby got home at 9PM.

We watched You're The Worst. He ate leftovers.

We went to bed at 10:30 after the early news.
