After looking for a month I have found a headboard for my bed. We went to every yard sale and garage sale I could find today . I found a headboard early but it was a double bed in lousy shape. Canton, Fruitvale, Grand Saline, and Van. After driving through Van we turned around expecting to drive back through Van have lunch and return home without a headboard. I past a ratty little building advertising used tires. I glanced as we went by they had some furniture too. It was a pain to turn around again and see if they had any thing I needed. I left hubby in the care I was so sure that it was a waste of time. An overweight young man laying on a couch ask me if he could help. It seemed too much of an effort to get up. I ask for a headboard a queen size one. He said he thought he had one. We went into a back room with about 25 bedframes leaning against a wall. He ask me to move so that he could toss about half of them down. That brought some guy a running. After I crawled back and peaked at the headboard I measured it somewhat it was big enough. I ask the guy how much when he said $l5.00 I was surprised. They dug it out for me and we finally got it into the trunk of the car. Holding down he trunk lid with a bunji cord. I drove all the way home at 40 miles an hour. It was a bear to carry into the house. Now I just need to get it cleaned up and attached. It is too dark and scratched but I think I can make it work.

I finally think I am getting the house together. I wonder why I have been so positive I had to get every thing together. This is a rented house and I am spending as much time as if it was mine. I don't know why it has just seems important. At least we are comfortable and maybe we can stay put for awhile.

Beautiful day today, I think they were eagles we were watching flying and soaring over the lake this morning. They were way too big for anything else. This is such a pretty place to live you can sit and watch the wild life all day.

Ah, sweet success!

Speaking of pretty places, it sure was pretty in Bloomfield and the surrounding areas. It's a little late this year, but the colors are in the process of changing, so it made it really pretty. The highway is really nice, too.

We all got up and went to church this morning, except for M, she didn't want to go, so we didn't want to fight with her. She missed out on lunch at Tony Roma's. I brought home leftover chicken bowtie pasta. R had chicken strips. Then we went to Sam's Club. Got home in time to watch the end of the Dallas game. Now we're watching Denver. Later it will be West Wing.

This will be another busy week because Jn will be out Thursday and Friday at staff retreat.

My left calf is aching, I don't know if the weather is fixing to change, I think so. But my leg is aching and my left wrist a little, too. I've been having trouble with it, I'm not sure why. I think it's just because I'm not a spring chicken anymore.

Well it has been busy at school and home with R. It is time for the dance competition finals. It was today and I didn't make it because we were driving around getting a birthday card for me and an anniversary card for mom and dad. R came up to my computer and pressed some keys and messed up on the other comment that I started and I had to restart this comment. Lately I have been tired because I do most of the work of taking care of R. They need to pay me for what I go through with him. Well that is enough talking right now. TTFN.
