everything changes yet all remains the same

howdy folks ! greetings and salutations!   how the hell have ya been?  i sincerely hope all is well in your worlds !  like i said last night in my sleep med stupor -- i never stopped thinkin of any of ya -- even through my disappearing act. 

it seems that a whole lot has been goin on here - but at the same time it seems nothin has been goin on too.  we'll all find out i reckon once i get goin eh?

i honestly don't know where to begin.  the beginning is always a good start -- but we all know my mind doesn't ever work that way. right?  so, as usual -- i'll just start writin and we shall  see what turns out on the page - eh?  this oughtta be fun.  yeh right.  maybe you should should get some coffee or a sammich?  i'll wait.

so.  how long have i even been MIA?  a month at least it looks like.  aside from an occasional check in on face-book.  usually basic or pointless.  or my signature -- 'soul-speak' which leaves everyone more confused than before.

anyhow -- let's get this party started , shall we?

in no particular order -- except that of my ramblin mind -- let's roll -

we have new baby kitties!  somewhere.  i discovered them a touch over a week ago.  sushi -- remember her -- our min - pin; with issues like no other dog that lived?

well -- the dogs (her, and eevee) - were outside , and she was goin nuts -- barkin like a fool -- but in a tone - that was unusual for her.  irritating though, enough for me to go investigate.  what did i find?  sushi - yappin, and diggin under the fence.  so.  i peeked thru the fence to see what had her so interested.  my thoughts were in the direction of a snake -- a squirrel, things along those lines.  but to my pleasant surprise -- it was a very fresh litter of baby kitties.  most were white -- i knew they would be easy to find homes for .. (later) unlike the last bunch.  one of which -- is the mommy of these -- a black one... so-- i put the dogs inside ; went back and put a big rock in front of the hole sushi was digging, and hoped that she would leave them alone.  HA - like that would ever happen.

( i think there are 5 -

well, obviously, blockin the hole did no good at all.  just as i thought -- so sushi bothering the babies had caused the mommy to move them.  and after a search of the entire property on all sides -- i can't find them anywhere.  i'm sure she has them safe somewhere.  we've been keeping mamma fed and watered so she won't dehydrate or something, and can stay healthy to keep the babies healthy.  it won't be long until she brings them here for real food after weening them.  i expect to see them all on the front porch in another two or three weeks.(?)  i love baby kitties.  it's when they grow up that they bother me.  :))    i love mine much more since we declawed them. some of you may remember my constant bitchin of their destruction?

oh.  somethin funny happened when i was out in the next door empty lot looking for them.. i saw THIS:  it made me think of my pal ' gecko sis' - yankee :))   check it out -

(the babies were between the two fences)

the smallest things make me think of each of one of you ,  i could make an entire post on that one -- i should do that one day.  "the things that make me think of my peeps " (not to mention - 'bring a smile to my not so  usually smiling face'.)  someone should remind me of that -- i'll do that on a day i have nothin to write about. 

i  miss knowin what's goin with y'all.  i haven't been readin blogs like i should either.  nothin personal.  know that.  like i said .. it seems that not much has been goin on here -- but really it's been crazy busy ... much of the time.  so many days -- even up to a week goes by that i don't do as much as even check my email.  the computer just hasn't been been a priority for me at all lately.  part of that could be the fact that it died.  ha!  i guess that would make some some sense eh?  kinda hard to use one if ya don't have one eh?  one day a week or two or two ago -- i was online -- of course doin my usual OCD banking etc ... next thing i knew --- well -- pictures speak better than i do --
THIS , happened ---

and i don't know why

i think the laptop was about four or five years old.  it had been through  several viruses.  it had also been actin up in many strange ways for months.  especially for the last few weeks of life.  very strange , the way it died tho.  literally -- it was workin fine one minute- and thext  - i saw -- what you see.  luckily we have a DELL credit account -- well, maybe not luckily -- i was close to havin it paid off.  but not now.  i do however, have a new laptop.  i wouldn't have done it .  maybe i would have -- but i would have felt a lot worse about it -- except for the fact that -- ' it's my birthday!'.  not really.  not yet.  it is , but not til the end of the month.  but soul kid had her birthday in march -- early march.  i swear to you -- ' it's my birthday!!!'  was every day --- for three weeks!!!   it was THE most expensive birthday that kid has had in her life.  mainly cus it included a car -- on top of a 'lemon' jeep -- that got over 1000.00 EXTRA parts and crap sunk into it before we gave up and found a different cheap beater car.  yeh, the jeep still sits in the driveway -- rotting.  -- don't ask if it's on my stress list -- cuz ya know it is.  ok-- back to my story.  yeh.  so. she really did do that -- for weeks -- we let her get away with it -- only cuz we could.  it got funny after a point -- but it also got to a point that my head almost blew a gasket.  so.  when my laptop died ???  my first 'line' was --- 'it's my birthday!'  and i wanted it ordered that day! yup. just call me veruca salt :))

 so.  i have a new laptop.  bad part?  i lost a shit ton of stuff -- some very important stuff.  and a million photos.  a lot.  a lot  alot a lot of stuff. 
but i really do need a laptop. i have a desktop-- but sittin there - for me - after a short time, gets to be plane torture, for my back - and just about every thing else too.  it took several days to get here -- but during the time i was waitin for it -- guess what i was doin anyhow?

yep -- bein bed - ridden. just about the same as the week before.  but i was actually gettin out - fishin, shoppin -- yeh , believe it.. i've started hittin antique stores here and there once in a while.  anyhow..  for a couple weeks, i was doin real well- physically, and mentally .  surprising eh?  then, it hit me like a train.  crippling , agonizing pain.  so i ended up stayin home, no fishin, no shoppin, no -- again surprising -- workin round the house even... stopped in my tracks.  i decided -- ok, time for more shots in my neck/back.  so.  i got those scheduled.  that ended up bein monday the 18th... unfortunately -- worse before better-- and i was house/bed/couch-bound - until Easter sunday.. when i could finally get up and feel well enough to clean up get dressed and we all went out for easter brunch.  which was real nice actually.  it was great to be out of the house - on my feet- with the fam.  all that stuff.  but-- soon as we got home - i hit the bed ...  today is the first day in a long while that i actually feel like i want to get out and go do somethin -- but i slept too late - soulkid is sick -- and as i write -- the day is almost gone - soulman will be home in a while -- and only God knows when i'll finish this post.  not to mention the fact -- once again there's weather - tornadoes and such breakin news on tv -- like the third day in a row.  lots of tornadoes round here lately.  first wild fires now storms, floods, and tornadoes.  so far tho-- we haven't had any damage.

i'm hungry.  just thought i'd throw that in there.  it's about time to grocery shop me thinks.  that's somethin i could go do.  do you believe it?  i actually do some grocery shoppin these days.  i have allowed myself to suck in the ego -- and use a scooter.  but it helps.  hubby and soulkid still do most of the shopping.. but i do go to base and do the big shopping maybe once a month ... those baskets on those things actually hold a lot more than i ever thought.  i still really hate to use em.  but i gotta say -- i'm a better shopper.  i can spend what they spend -- and it'll last twice as long.  we talked about that the other day (when they went shoppin) -- they spent 150-- ish.. we have nothing left.  i coulda spent the same -- and had lunch today.  but i 'couldn't go. cuz i hurt. which is usually the case.  someone should take me out to eat.  :))  i reckon i should wake up before 11.. shameful, i know. tomorrow, and go get some fewd in this place.

so anyhow.  i see this is gettin -- if it hasn't already passed - LONG.  so, aside from that - i'm in typo hell as well - with no spell check , and goin blind too.  so -- i am assuming we are all in the same boat at this time -- i think i will pick this up later -- or tomorrow -- that's more likely. 

have a happy night folks -
