stuff

i'm so streeeeeeeeetttttcccccccccccccccchhhhhhhed lately!! i meant to come back on here and write more but nope didn't get to. Everything is a mess & i've got everything ½ done, but nothing completey done i know what it is, too many big decisions to make.

Like one is this - We want to get 2 new computers but i HATE to spend too much money on ANYTHING! But there are some certain things i want in these 2 computers which of course cost alot. Here's the 2 we're thinking about - #1 & #2 i really wanted to get #1 cheaper than that like maybe a couple hundred and i really want #2 to be that price with a monitor, cause we really need a new one. So next we're gonna check out maybe getting something that is refurbished.

And i'm not real sure about getting a PC with Vista. When we first got this thing it had the "new" Millenium (ME) and there was no one who knew anything about it when we had problems for the 1st yr. After that it wasn't too bad and even ended up being a good system for us. But after all we've heard about XP Home Ed we're a little leary. But we also know that these are the same things people said to us about ME. so.....

We've been checking out prices through store's websites. i haven't noticed a difference between actual store & online prices so i think we're ok doing it this way? If i'm wrong holler at me so i know.

Oh and on the whole i HATE to spend money thing. Last year we spent out over $3000 on heating our old house (10/05-1/06) and it was still freezing in there! We walked around completely dressed (covered except head & hands) all the time and slept with 2 blankets, too! Actually we finally paid last years heating bills off with the help of an agency here in Sept. So we moved in January to a all electric trailer that is ½ as big and we decide this winter we'd heat with a woodstove. But we didn't make that decision till October (we had a filled summer ) and we didn't have enough money saved up to buy one till December. Well just for anyone who don't know (we didn't!) it is not possible to buy cheap dry wood in December! So we have tried everything - side note - don't burn duraflame logs in woodstoves unless you like being cold & having a VERY smoky house! Cold because you opened the doors on one of the coldest nights of the year to get smoke out of your house so you can breathe and stop the tears from the smoke burning your eyes. And smoky cause the pipes & rain cap are all clogged from the cresote build up from burning the 2 before that. Yes all of that and we just burned 3!!! And yes i know they say do not use in woodstoves but they do say you can use in fireplaces - not much difference there!

But anyway we've got a sawmill we go buy mill ends from. But it's an amish guy so they shouldn't have any chemicals on them. It's a great price $20 a truckload, hell a truckload would last us probably all winter! but of course we have no truck. We don't even have the back of the van now (i'm still in shock over that!). So we go and fill up the trunk till we're sure it can't take any more weight. But the thing is they are still wet inside so they don't burn good at all! With all the recent ice storms we've been getting sticks & branches from the neighbors. They're wet too but dry out quicker usually.

Not sure if you know this or not but there are 2 universal ways to cut wood for burning - chop w/ an axe or cut w/ chainsaw. Well either way Darkside's back is put through hell. So we have to do a little bit at a time so He doesn't flair those disks up too badly. And working with an axe is the worst on His back He almost went to the dr but didn't i watched Him pop 3 Vicodins in row! He still was in pain! Didn't even feel woozy! Not me, i take one and BAM! i'm woozy & HIGH it's great! Especially when it kills the pain - mmmmm.... That's what i had before, during, & after all my dental work. But His back isn't hurting now

i was gonna tell Robyn about ^^ but she hasn't called in awhile. She'd just die knowing he took that many! She'll call when she's ready though, she usually does.

Well that's only a portion of the crap i had to say. So i'll be back when i get a chance =) Is myspace the shit though? You get to see all kinds of people you aint seen in years. Great for either making yourself feel better or like crap

Oh and one last thing - i definetely HAVE to hook up the mic soon cause you all should hear #4 She somehow learned to say OH-MY-GAWD just like Janice on Friends LMAO! It's just toooo funny & cute! i'll try to do that today too.

later.....
