On the pursuit of happiness........

I am happy to announce the winner of my giveaway...........#68 Dyylannn.  Thank you all for participating.  It was a lot of fun, I hope to do another one soon.  I used the random number generator on to pick the number.

I can't believe it has been a month since the last time I did 10 things about me.  So today I am going to do 10 things I love and 10 things I hate.

I 'll start with the things I hate~
  1. BP CEO Tony Hayward
  2. tomatoes
  3. snakes
  4. know-it-alls
  5. that my sister can't do everything she wants too, because of her disease
  6.  the smell of dirt and grass
  7. when I tell my man to pull over so I can take a picture and he ignores me.
  8. that we don't have our own house
  9. days when I feel that the only reason I am around is to service my family- zombie slave as I call it.
  10. feeling uninspired, overwhelmed, and good for nothing

Things I love~
  1. my family
  2. purple
  3. garage sales
  4. black coffee
  5. books
  6. butterflies
  7. photography
  8. nature walks
  9. the rain
  10. making crafts
Well, this week ended up being a really good week.  I found out Schmaps Guide did use my photo.  Yeah!, my first publication.

I am also a $100 richer.   At the beginning of the year my old "woman's" doctor sent me a bill for $24.00 dating back to a service that was provided 2 years prior.  If I didn't pay in 10 days they were going to send me to collections.  I knew I had paid them.  I asked them to send me all the statements and had my mom look at them; she used to be a bookkeeper.  Come to find out, they owed me a $102.00.  It took them 6 months to finally get their act together and give me my money.  I sent letters every month to remind them, asking them for the same courtesy they expected out from me.  They wanted their money in 10 days, but when it was the other way around, they took 6 months.  Ridiculous.  I hate big business, who don't care about the little people.  So Women's Care for Life:  You are forever banned from my good thoughts,  if anyone ever asks me about your business  I will give them the most detailed awful review you can ever imagine.  But thanks for being greedy over $20.00 'cause now I am $100 richer.  Ha!
