MAY 31 2017

Hubby and I have been arguing about getting rid of Mark. We have told him repeatedly that he needs to be out by the end of May, but he has not made any effort to leave.

So I refused to play the game anymore. He is costing us $250 a month in electricity alone. What a fucking waste.
Lots of Pollen on the deck

Hubby got the garbage ready, Loaded the bikes in the Dodge.

We rode bikes in Farragut Park. It was hot. Encountered a woman smoking, walking her cute little black and white Boston Terriers.

Got back and I shaved my legs to get ready for my nail/toenail appointment.

Hubby went to the shop to work while I went to Rhonda's to get my nails & toes done.

I was done at 1:40PM and I drove home.

 Rattler & Scaredy Cats

Hubby got home much later.

We took the dogs for a walk tonight at Farragut. Bud was huffing a lot. We walked a little too far for him. We will need to keep our walks shorter.

Went to Spirit Lake to eat at BBQ place - Boar's Nest on the lake. Food was ok. I liked the view from the patio.
Lunch on the Patio
Came back and watched Fargo on TV and went to bed.

More Disappointment

MAY 30 2017

Got up at 8AM. I had already gotten up at 5AM to potty.

Zim, Rattler, and Wilson were in bed with us already.

Made latte for hubby. He did not want an egg sandwich.

He got the Dodge and hooked up the trailer, then put the riding lawn mower on it.

We decided to take the garbage to the dump. Hubby put on the dead bushes to haul out to the pit.

We took the dogs along with us for a walk later.

Drove up to drop off the Lawn Mower at the repair shop just south of Sagle. Watched some old man jack-knife his trailer and take off in front of on-coming traffic on Hwy 95. Almost got hit. Two other guys were there, exchanging information because they back into each other.

Hubby left and turned towards Sandpoint instead of Round Lake, so we had to turn around. He was busy talking to Larry, Jr about work tonight.

Drove to Round Lake and walked the dogs about 2.4 miles. It was a long, hot trek. Threw Wilson in the water and he paddled around. Bud & Ben walked belly-deep into the water by the dam and drank from it. Then we walked back.

 Bud & Ben drinking water from Round Lake dam

On our drive back home, KR called and was upset. She lost her job again. We went home to change clothes and leave the dogs.

Got the Jeep and drove to see KR at her house. Went out to eat at Crickets, which was disappointing. We did not get food (which I desperately needed because I had not eaten yet!)

Late lunch consisted of drinks, Vodka lemonade for KR, Kahlua & Cream for me, & Bloody Marys for hubby. Then we got the sample platter. Bland, bland food. Yuck.

We walked around the new Hagadone Park grotto. It was gross. Lots of concrete and not much grass. Petted a cute mastiff named Sam whose owner was talking loudly on his cellphone.

Walked back to the Jeep. Drove KR to the Post Falls Brewing House so she could meet Amanda & Kyle.

Hubby and I went to Walmart for more fans at home.

Drove home.

Unloaded groceries. I was in lots of pain. Hubby finally fixed the step on the deck after I had to complain to him again.

Watched the Season Finale of The Americans (which was REALLY boring). 

Went to bed.

Monday, May 29, 2017



Up at 1AM to potty, then back to bed.

Zim cat slept under my hand all night long. Then he flopped on my thigh to go to sleep. He is a sweet kitty.

At 8AM, got up and made latte for hubby & breakfast sandwich. Dogs got eggs.

Outside, one of the stripe kittys got very high up in a tree and tried to destroy a bird's nest. The bird's dive-bombed him and scared him off.

Cleaned up. Started dishes.

Hubby went outside to mow at 9:30. He mowed until 11:30.

Turned on the A/C by 9AM.

Started laundry. Washed Ben's pillows on his bed.

I went outside to spray vinegar on the weeds. Cleaned up the area where hubby was mowing.

I pushed the wheel barrow into the back yard so I could pick up dog poo.

After I was done, I came inside and took a shower as I was already sweating and stinky.

Lots of POLLEN everywhere. Yuck.

KR called and said that she was coming out and would stop at our place before going up to Round Lake for a hike.

Hubby got done mowing and came inside for a shower. I washed his clothes. They were dusty, stinky, and covered in pollen.
At 1PM, KR got here and left her food. She took Beebo with her on the walk. She got back around 3PM. We watched TV and I took a nap upstairs.

I sat with KR on the deck for a while. She red her Game of Thrones book.

We started dinner on the grille at 5PM; the shrimp were great. The potatoes were undercooked because the grille does not heat evenly. The chicken was odd. We decided to scrap the chicken. Odd rubbery taste.

Took the dogs for a walk in Farragut after the sun went down at 7PM.

Dogs were walking thru lots of pollen. Saw some horses on the trail. Bud was huffing badly.

Came back home and KR said it was late, she had to get home. Did not want to do a firepit fire. She left at 9PM. Bravo tried to avoid going home with her. He would not get off the dog bed, then he hid in every room. He even tried to go upstairs to avoid leaving.

Hubby and I sat watching TV. We went to bed early.

Hot Day Sunday


Sun was already up when I woke up at 5:45AM. I opened the doggy door.

Hubby also got up to pee off the deck. When back to bed until 8AM.

We got up and dressed. Drove to Rathdrum via Hwy 41 because we wanted to see what was left of the accident between a Prius and a Semi on Hwy 41 from Friday.

After we parked the dogs in the shade of the building, we went inside to get groceries at Super One. Then we came back outside, unloaded groceries and took the dogs for a walk at the school.

I was wearing sandals and was COVERED in pollen by the time we finished our walk thru the grass. Wilson had green nasty pollen up his nose.


We took the Dodge to the car wash. Filled up gasoline at the station. Almost got hit by an asshole motorcyclist that was cutting thru the station.

Drove back home. Unloaded groceries into the house.

My Lilac is finally blooming.


Hubby finally grilled his pork chops that he had marinating in the fridge for over a week.

Hubby helped pull out the fridge and I cleaned on the sides & top. Lots of dirt & dust. Then I vacuumed behind the refrigerator area. Had to use over a dozen wet washrags to clean all the dirt on the floor under the refrigerator. Gross. Vacuumed up the dust.

Hubby was tired and took a nap.

KR came out at 2PM, she brought food for tomorow and Vodka for the Bloody Marys.

We talked for a while, KR & hubby made Bloody Mary's. We played games at the table until 9PM. KR and Beebo went home at 9PM.

Bloody Mary's

Hubby and I cleaned up then went to bed.

Saturday, May 27, 2017



Got up and made eggs for dogs. Hubby took over and put in sausage.

Then I made latte for hubby. Put in alcohol today because he was not going to work!

We sat on the front deck after hubby fed the dogs. I gave Bud his painkillers. He is limping around a lot today.

Watched the kitties play in the woods.

 Hubby went down to the shop to take out a boat, meet a guy to pick up a truck.

Then he left to go down to the Post Falls shop and meet Lane H. They will work in the shop today to get some work done.

 I got my first mousey from Joey this morning!

Last day of work for hubby before Memorial Day week vacation.

Made egg sandwich, latte for hubby. Also made egg ham cups for his snack, gave him a banana to take to work. Also made him a meatloaf sandwich for tonight because he will be going to the shop to work.

Larry decided to quit working. He does not want to work at the shop anymore. Hubby only did the shop in Post Falls so Larry could be there to work it. So all the stuff will have to be moved out and hubby will be dismantling the business.

Hubby went to work.

Hubby, Bud, Ben, Wilson, Beebo

Saturday, May 13, 2017



Got up at 6AM. Opened the doggy door and went back to sleep on the couch.

Hubby got home at 5PM, we drove up to Sandpoint to pick up parts. He took a sandwich for himself, but did not eat it.

I was hurting severely all day, did not really want to go up there.

I drove. The bugs were awful. Windshield was covered in black, dead bug bodies.

In Sandpoint, we drove to North 40 to get a drain pan. Then went to Tom's to pick up parts. Talked to Goad. Not very friendly guy. He wanted to know about buying a car from hubby for the drive back to Kansas. Is this guy loaded or what?

I left Zim at the Vet.

Fed Ex delivered the Chime Pro for the doorbell.

At home, I cleaned up kitty litter again. Did more laundry. Did more dishes.

Larry came to pick up something out of the shop, but I did not have keys for the blue building after having re-keyed it. And there were no keys at the house. Larry had to end up breaking into the door. 

I called Dr Mike at 4PM and he said come pick Zim up at 5PM. It must have been something he ate because there was no fever, and he looked like he was recovering after they got the IV into him.

Zim was really weak and tired when he came home. I picked him up and could literally feel his stomach release gas when I touched him.

Hubby got home at 7:15PM and went down to take out a trailer out of storage for a client.

Saturday, May 06, 2017



Max disappeared last night or early this morning. He is no more.

I am devastated. Two of my favorite kitties are gone. I hate whatever is taking them from me. I will kill a coyote if I ever see it again. I will eviscerate it with a knife. I will burn it in a pyre 1000 feet high.

We will start locking the doggy door at night so none of the kitties take off during the night. They will only be let out during the day time.

This morning, Hubby made eggs for the dogs.

We took the Jeep into CDA and hubby dropped me off at my Hair appointment at 9AM(the appointment from yesterday had to be re-scheduled because my hairstylist had to testify in a murder trial).

Rachelle did the Keratin treatment on my hair and I was done by 10AM.

I texted hubby, but he did not reply so I called KR. She came to get me. Then hubby finally texted back. We waited in KR's car until hubby came. Then hubby got in with us and we drove to The Porch because hubby wanted Gumbo. I was not hungry and KR already had eaten breakfast.

The waitress was rude. I hate the food there.

KR took us back to the Jeep. She went to Spokane for a Match.Com site date.

We drove to Costco and got fuel; then drove over to Metro Express to wash the Jeep. Drove to Walmart and picked up 2 cases of water. Hubby ran inside while I sat outside in the Jeep waiting for him.

Went home and took the dogs for a walk.

Hubby had to returns parts to O'Reilley's, so we took the Dually and drove down there. Stopped at Super One for groceries.

Hooked on Jose Cuervo Margarita Minis~!

We watched a really stupid movie, Split. It was another crappy movie by M. Night Shyamalan. YUCK. Horrible boring, stupid movie!

Came back home and hubby made angel hair spaghetti, meatballs, and garlic french bread. It was good. I ate too much.

Went to bed at 9:30. Hubby came up later after he watched a show. He closed the Doggy door so no other kitties will go out at night.

Friday, May 05, 2017



Bad dreams and hot all night. Hubby said he was hot and sweaty, too. I had to open a window to get a cool breeze going so I could go back to sleep.

Got up at 6:30AM. Hubby said he has the "don't cares". Don't care anymore.

Gave kittens some chicken, while I made breakfast. Fed dogs some ham and gave Bud his painkiller.

I made breakfast sandwich & latte for hubby.

Hubby left at 6:45. It started to rain as he left.

I went to get my hair done at 10AM with Rachelle. She had gotten served with a summons to testify in a murder case in court. They called her at 10:30 just as she was putting chemicals on my hair for the color. She finished my color and told me that she would only be 30 minutes and be back to finish my hair.

I went to do errands. Mailed (without a stamp) the Remington Water payment, then went to Metro Express to wash my car. Too many cars at Costco to get gasoline, so I went to North 40 for cat food instead. Stopped at Wendy's to get salads, then at Albertson's to pick up groceries. I got some cinnamon rolls that were on sale.

Talked to Kim on the phone the entire time that I was shopping at Albertsons.

Rachelle texted me and said that she would be done at 2PM, but I told her that I was going home and we could re-schedule some other time.

Hubby got home late. He worked at the Post Falls shop.

We went to bed early when he got home. I was exhausted.

Thursday, May 04, 2017



I had severe cramps all night long. I was in the bath 3 times in the night.

Took lots of aspirin.

So I overslept on the couch this morning until 8AM. I think hubby woke me up before he left.
 Gave dogs ham & administered Bud's painkiller pill.

Vacuumed. Did laundry and dishes.

Did more bookwork.

It was a beautiful sunshine day outside. I sat outside on the deck with the dogs. Dragged another dog bed out there and cleaned the chairs before I sat down.

Put together the new fans that we purchased from Costco.

Hubby got home about 6:30PM after Class at Frontier. He had a quick bite to eat, then we loaded the dogs up in the Dodge and went to the park for a walk. The sun was still shining and it was warm outside. Hubby had changed into shorts & Keen shoes.

At the park, we walked on Shooters Road. No Hobbits there picking mushrooms. Lots of people in park, tho. We forgot bottled water and walked too far with Bud. Poor dog was panting and limping when we returned to the truck.

Gave them water in a bowl at the truck, then loaded the dogs up and drove around the park. Wilson was whining to get his head out the window to smell everything. We saw 3 deer throughout the park, but not much else.

Drove home.

Found out that a major check deposited the other day from a customer had bounded. Hubby was upset & furious. 

Watched TV. I went to bed early.

Changed cat litter. Did laundry. Did dishes.

Got ready for nail appointment. Left at 12:30, got there at 1PM.

Rhonda did my nails again. Feels odd to have pretty nails & toes again. Caught up on all her gossip.

 Got my nails done again after 2 years of not having nails

I drove home at 3:00, kids were getting out of school. There were 3 patrols cars all over town to ensure that people were not speeding.

At home, I gave dogs some ham.

Hubby got home at 6PM after going to shop in Post Falls.

He took me over to Spirit Lake to eat enchilada at the Mexican Restaurant there. It was awful. I forgot why I did not want to ever go there again. It is due to the fact that they boil the chicken and do not flavor it. Yuck. Bland food.

We drove home, then forgot to get milk. Drove into Lil Town to pick up milk.

Came back, watched TV. Went to bed.

Woke up to sun. Hubby had the heater on in the bathroom, but it was not severely cold as usual. I got to sleep late until 6:30 because hubby had another class day today. He did not have to leave at 6:30 as usual.

I made him a breakfast sandwich and a latte.

He finally left at 6:45AM.

I started laundry and dishes.

Made tuna for the kitties.

Gave ham to the doggies. Gave Bud his painkillers. Wilson went outside with his kitties.

Ordered a Harley Sweatshirt for KR because she liked mine so much this weekend. Ordered a HEPA filter from Walmart for the basement air cleaner.
