Post Name You Got Me

Quite a Few times I never know what call my post...Or even time I thought of starting my post...something like...Dear Post...To those who listen.....
I have to say I'm starting to come around after finding about Bart Tumor. There is a lot in his favor.
I've been taught you don't jump to conclusion until all the facts are in. This up coming Friday he seeing an neurologist in his office and they'll go from there.

Let see just a short time I spent time tossing Daisy her Bear. I won't toss her red ball in the house. Might break something, and that wouldn't been good

Well Ziggy the cat would sat and watch. By the puzzled look on his face he thinks we couple of crazy.
Still will match any donation up to $50 for DAISY TEETH. It been a while since any donations.

In the news they been talking about Trump new taxes. I often wonder why some many pages. We're
far from rich and ours is 14 pages. After all done said our income for $15,500 which is
POVERTY and I never cared for that word "Poverty" I rather use "Low Income" I've never lived in squalor or became un-kept.


Still looking for my 2nd great grand pa "John Shirley" no luck, but I did find a photo of my husband 2nd great grandma Helen Marie Vandoren.
As far as I can see she had 14 children.

Friday weigh in and the morning Murphy and I going to my mother cousin Jim who pass away 18th of this month. Had to look on Ancestry to find out he was born in Mitchell Nebraska, on the 30th of November 1930.
His parents was Charles "Clifford" and Florence Masterson McCalmant. He had one older sister Elda who has also passed.
One younger brother still living. He has 3 remaining daughters, and buried a son who died the same day he was born, nothing more. A son Robert birth and death listed as same day.
In 1935 looks like his resident was in Portland Oregon, 1949 he listed in the navy. Also lived in Kellogg and was married numerous times.
Hopeful more will come....I don't believe our local paper carried his obit.

It Could Go Either Way

My youngest son Bart turn 26 yesterday and spend time in the emergency room. It start out he felt dizzy, trouble with gross motor skills, and vomiting.
So first they went to what they call urgent care and thought he need to be seen by someone at local emergency room doctor.
So an MRI was ordered. Well they found a very tiny tumor in right frontal lobe. Well when I heard the term tumor and known it would be a wide range of possibility and treatments.
But still I became depress and worried over it. This morning he need to call some type of specialist and I would guess it would be a Neurologist.

Took the pick in and it been running a little ruff. And Murphy start more seeds. I know one was pomodore tomatoes.
Let see I can recall two other type of seed he start leeks and broccoli.
As I've mention Liz been down in Utah, and I been taking care of her place. And she will be returning this Friday evening, and I'm picking her up.
I'm ready to get back to work full time.

When we took the pick up in. It was before Breakfast and stop in at the deli in Super One. So both us had 1/2 pound of Breakfast Casserole.
Not sure what the calorie count. But I'm going to take away 300 calories. So my fitday food count will be 1672

Both my client gets or qualify for the state disability program. Usual every state has one. Since I'm here in Idaho. I thought it was $75 a month, well found out it is $53 a month. I use to understand there math how they figure it out, and now I don't.
Well most people I've taken care of gets in the $30 range.
A few I've known calls this there non food fund. They purchase dish soap, laundry, toilet paper, and even get a roll of quarters for laundry.
I did a expensive tracker and budget for the up coming month of May, on my bullet journal. One of the category was non food. So thinking I would use the figure of $75 times 2 which equal $150 for hubby and I on non food items.
But for June I'm going to try it at $106 for non food items.

Some Days Honesty Can Be Diffucult.

Yesterday Monday I was taking Regis to his appointment in Sandpoint. Some how Wills was brought up in conversation.
And I don't what exactly was said. But something was said and it hit an hurtful spot with in my soul.
I try not to be bitter about things of the past.
This is how basically my parents will was written up. If either one of my parents went first the other one would of gotten the spouse part.
If they both went at the same time. I would of gotten $1.00 and it would of gone to my Aunt Eve.
Well my dad went first and then my mom. She never up-dated her will.
And when she went my Aunt said...It's all yours...had to hire an lawyer to sign her off. But I have wonder if her husband had pass on if she would of kept it.
I did get my inheritance. But still when estate are brought up and I find it some what painful to deal with.

So yesterday when I did my mood face over at fitday. Under happiness I had to Happiness to unhappy, stress to neutral, and angry was angry. I don't like these feeling. But this is how I felt yesterday.
Weigh in was good at T.O.P.S weight lost 3 weeks in a roll. On the T.O.P.S scale I was down half pound and there scales said I weigh 221.75

Got my bullet journal. Made an yearly calender, and monthly calender for month of may. Those I'm please with. But did a weekly calender for the month of May. Once I got it set up and I already see what I will do different., for June.
I believe the way I got my spending tracker and budget set up will work. Not saying they won't be room for improvements.
Also have pages for the weather and how many steps.
I'm going to leave it like that...But I didn't have a page for monthly, weekly or daily goals.
But by end of May I can figure what work and didn't work. " remember I'll match up to $50.
Reminder on the right hand side of my blog is a link for my little doggy "Daisy teeth cleaning"  remember I'll match up to $50.

Wednesday no work we're taking the pick up in. Not sure what all needs to be done. Not sure if this is correct term I believe the leaf spring is broke.
We're talking about renting a shampooer and if I had my way. I would take all the carpet out and put in something like vinyl flooring.

Today my youngest son Bart just turn 26. I wasn't sure what to get him, and ancestry had there DNA kit on sale. So I order one for him.
Both Murphy, my self, and Sawyer all have dark hair. But Bart is lighter hair, even at one time he was a toe head.

Ask and Seek

I've usual have an accounting handle the taxes. I believe I need to contact an lawyer about setting up certain legealities for hubby and I. Doing in home care and seeing life in general.
Believe me I've seen all sort of things when it comes to politics of families, including both of ours.
As I speak right now. I would say both sons would be fair about dividing up the property, Then also I don't believe either one of my sons would just put me in nursing home.
but who know what the future brings. So I need to be protected on such things.

Calorie count still under by 247. Sort of hungry at this time. This past week my calories I want to keep them right round 1997 and next week I'm taking it down by 25 which leaves me at 1972.
First part of May I will either keep track of my water intake or my activies.
Question time...Out of water in take or activies which do you think is more important.

I've been thinking what all I want to put in my "bullet Journal" and one thing I want to put in is a budget or a financial tracker.
I've heard people say...I don't have much money and there no need to budget.
So today I made up an budget. I've learn there sort of three catagory you place money...Needs, future, and wants.
I'm going to try to eat on what the maxium food stamps or now know as snap which lower income people get.
For two people now it's $360 a month or $90 a week. This is what I'm planning to eat on.
Which doesn't include hygiene products but most states has an there own disabilty funds. Idaho max is $75 a month and I'm going to try to get our hygiene product with that amount.
I know to quilify for food stamps one needs to be almost destitute. But I wonder if I can feed the two of on $360 a month.
Couple more things or goals I want to put in. One thing for sure I need to get my paper clutter on control.
Like all of us something is learn as we goal.

Murphy and I went to the dump today.
Early afternoon I went to druming circle. Next Saturday I'm going to a BELTANE celebration and it out in MEDICAL LAKE WASHINGTON
One thing since Liz been gone for all most the entire month of April and my hours been cut in half. Actual now we're starting to  feel it financially. But nothing to serious, kept all the bills up to date.
But she coming back on the 29th and we will have a little more breathing room.
Still willing to match "Daisy Teeth Cleaning funds" up to $50. If anyone want to donate there is a link on the right hand side of the blog..."Daisy Teeth Cleaning"

two thing I been worked on is the locker hook rug. Still need to get photos up...darn photo issue....And some family history still trying to find my second great grand dad on my mom side John Shirley and his wife Hannah (Ross) Shirley in 1850 census in Philadelphia.
But I've ran into quite a bit of info on the Trefry. My 2nd great grandfather Russel Trefry on my dad side had 19 children. And his dad William had 16 children.
It got me wondering after a hard day of working the farm and there wasn't no medicine for ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION and still they brought forth off spring, back in day.

Trying To Think What To Post

I know I should have will. But what worries me more then what will happen to odds and ends I have. Is living in a destitute situation as I'm become old.
Doing home care I've seen people sign there home over to the state of Idaho, so they can get there medical needs taking care of.
I've seen the hurt and anguish.
I believe there legal ways around it. But I'm not sure what they are.

So today we went down to the Spokane Valley to an memorial service for Murphy cousin Harold. Now my husband is oldest of his cousin.
Me, a lot would have die off. On my mom side my  grandparents had 28 grandchildren and I'm #24.
We stop at Bart and I knew he would been gone. Him and his father in law went for a ride I believe in by LAKE COEUR ALENE.
The reason we stop was drop off a packages for Claudia and Murphy want so metal cut.

A few minor stop only thing Murphy and bought was a pad carpet for by the sink. Standing bothers Murphy, and hand held can opener.
I guess this is a good enough place to put in a link for DAISY TEETH CLEANING. Remember I match all donation up to $50.
Murphy and I just finish up pruning the raspberries.
Last thing I should mention is my mother first cousin Jim died on the 18th of this month. No obit yet for him.
I have to wonder how much angry his daughter have toward him. He tend to be-little his 3 children and didn't real support his children.
I've experience being be-little from My dad. But my dad did support his family.

I decided I'm going to try BULLET JOURNAL been reading and watching you tube and I can see how it could cut back on my paper clutter.

That Not The Issue.

I just tried the other dew hickey about loading photos up my lab top. "Houston We Still Have an Issue".
See my speaker works in all of my usb ports. Now I believe it a programing issue. I will need to find some one who can operate a computer programs like a whiz and that not me. Usual I make things a lot of worst.
I do miss sharing photos on my blog.

Took Regis to few yard sale. Both of had $5.00 I got more cards and necklace.
Later on in the afternoon I meant La Walla at under the sun. And we had some coffee. I got a cup of Mushroom soup.
Well the other day I said she didn't claim her inheritance.  So I suggest she see an accountant on the money.
 She liked my ideal of going to talk to an accountant on it.
$30,000 she got. One of her sister is the exactor and she isn't capable of handling the estate. She now placed in mental hospital.
That ole saying "Money Talks and Bull Shit Walks" at one time toward the end her mom became un-able to hand her affairs. See her mom was even trying to buy stocks and bonds she the doll.
So the family step and it became a big fight.
Not going into all the detail. What ended being a court battle for someone I'll assume is POWER OF ATTORNEY
My friend sister ended up with both P.O.A and executor of the trust.
When it comes to money she could spend to no end. And usual those who have the gold rules. Since she has money she is smart and handling the estate
Now what I seen with wills and trust. I wonder if it a waste of time. Confession time...I don't have a will.

Weigh in this morning and still at the same from T.O.P.S. Eating been going good trying to keep my calorie count around 1,997.
So next Sunday or Monday I will drop my calorie count down to 1,972. My goal is wean my self down to 1,800 calories.
Couple of things I haven't done with FITDAY is Activity log and my body measurement's.
But one thing I like is mood tracker. Not going into all of them but my stress level been 3 days neutral, 2 days stress, and 2 days of calm
Then the other one I will bring up now is the "Anger" 3 days Neutral and 2 days of peace.


The other day I became were of what I call a zen tracker.

I got all the require colors done on locker rug. Just in case your new here or haven't heard about it.
The coral, turquoise, and yellow is done. But now I'm working on the fill in colors.

Still doing my fund raiser for Ms Daisy and there is a link on the right hand side of blog just right below my complete profile...Things to click on "Daisy Teeth Cleaning"
Now off to do dishes, balance the check book, and finish putting in dinner with fit day.

I Never But That Not True

I was going to post that "I never committed fraud" which would be an un-true. If there a little of an excuse of fraud for me it would of to make one life more simple.
If I was going to rate my fraud active it would be eighth to quarter of inch on scale. Not sure how that would work out metrically.

Our government programs are sat up with no common sense. Now I will continue or confess on one self of fraud.
Confession time...I'm not always honest about the exact hours...but I don't cheat on the time.
I will give an example if a client has two people in there home...A social worker and some one cleaning. We aren't aloud to bill the state for the same hours.
So let use the social work she will bill May 1st from 9AM til 11:30 which is 2 and half hours.
So let use the care giver she might be there actual 9:30 to 2:30 which is 5 hours.
As you can see 2 hours they're billing at the same hours.
So had I would do even if I'm not there...I would say I came in at 12PM and work til 5PM still the same amount of hours.
If any of you are wonder why I just going at noon. Some time that would work but there time my other client might have an appointment and I'm force to my other choices.
Confession time...I could do better in my mileage...I only guess the mileage I drive on my job.
I don't do anything outrages.
But that only fraud I do when it comes to work.
Liz said she would sign my paper work head of time and I could send them in.
That pushing fraud a little more then I like. I don't even cheat on my federal or state taxes. Sure I have accountant do mine and I want every tax advantage.

Statement time....I believe in Karma. 
My friend La Walla inheritance around 30,000 and she never claim it. She went up to Canada and stuck it in a bank there.
See she has a lot of health issue do to a super bad immune system, and if she was total honest what she got her benefits would be a lot less.
See her rent is $60 a month, both side of her medical is paid for; she getting both medicare and medicaid, and $120 in snap program.
See they believe her income is her social security check around $950 a month. See she has the inheritance and she earn other money.
Let just say a lot of our welfare programs your aloud $2,000 of asset. Which includes most things. What doesn't count is your first vehicle. But depends on program and sometime your resident does count, and other time it doesn't
One might be saying as long as her money in Canada there nothing to worry about. Well the other day she got a notice from an accountant and telling her that there is a mix up on the inheritance for tax reason.
Sound like they will be sending her some tax forms for inherits and they will also return to the IRS.
So she could be possible getting it for fraud.
See her sister is the executor of the will, and she recently got but in a private mental hospital.
It sound like a mess. But Murphy and I don't have a will. I've seen even people with a will and the estate was a mess.

Today Murphy and I went over to his sister Faith and he cut down a cherry tree. And later on I picked up rocks off our lawn and toss it back on our drive way.
When the snow plow push snow last winter it also took rocks with them.
Finely our blue strawberry seed Murphy planted has came up.
The flower bed below the window has a few blooms.
Daisy has her red ball toss out in yard. Since it was nice day and I hear rain might be coming in tomorrow. And once again I'll mention on the right hand side of the blog is a link "Daisy Teeth Cleaning"
The fit day is helping quite a bit in keep track of what I eat. It also keep track of my nutritional  intake is these 3 vitamin A, D, and E.
Well I could post about our sex life. But since it not raining it would be a good ideal to see if I could do a little more around the place.
