Good Morning to one and all :)
Yes, it is morning. It is 5:23 in the morning. I've been awake since about 3:00 in the morning and up since 4:30 in the morning. I'm going to shoot one of the cats.
This is going to be the year of spending money where we don't want to spend it, or something along those lines.
In Demcember there was helping out our son and the water heater leaking and having to be replaced. Then in January it was Hubby's teeth deciding they really did have to get fixed, which is taking 3 "super appointments" to accomplish. Then in February my intestinal tract put up a fuss and I went to the ER. Yesterday, March 3rd, the house's plumbing went haywire and I had to call in a plumber - the job won't be finished until sometime on Monday . . . we hope it will be finished on Monday. Right now I have a complete bathroom only by combining two seperate locations, well a bathroom sans tub and/or shower. In the main bath only the toilet works. In the half bath only the sink works. The drains are backing up only in the main bath sink and the tub, the toilet has been pulled out in the half bath to access pipes. I'm glad I don't know what is coming next . . . I think knowing would be worse somehow.
The final Billy signed print of the calligraphy is doing well on ebay - that's good news :)
I have a story already written for the next Marigold's Challenge :) I have 3 at the current Challenge which is here: http://talechallenge26.livejournal.com/
(don't know why the spacing went weird here)
I think I'm going to see if I can go back to sleep for a couple of hours.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled Saturday morning. ;)

Cheer up,luv. All will be well eventually. As you are trapsing down this dark tunnel and you see a light at the end of it take a moment to examine that light. If it is still and quiet and only very slowly gets brighter with each passing step it is day light and you may allow yourself to feel hope. If the light should be growing brighter and larger very rapidly you had best get off the tracks and quake in fear.

I went through a period like this myself (Sept. 2005 to February 2006)and I can honestly say that it will not last forever it will just feel like it. Just keep the chocolate and the shortbread handy. Take solace in your friends. And when your fencing imagine your opponent is representing all of your woes and really skewer 'em!!!

Hi Ros!

The calligraphy is here:

It has a bit over 4 hours left :)

"doing well" was an understatement!

Good stories!

I like your picking up on Merry's interest in leaf; the pony race reminded me of my pitiful "My Fair Samwise", which included a takeoff on the Ascot race scene in "My Fair Lady" - *G*; and, great job in linking the "burned hand" comments in the Pippin story!

Thank you so much, Ros!! I do seem to do well with the imput of challenges. I'm glad you enjoyed them :)

Yes, I hope the monthly unusual expenses will come to an end soon, thank you for the sympathetic thoughts :)
