I'm not glad to be disabled but am glad the court decision is done. What I don't understand why it had to take two years. With many doctor verifications, I assumed it would have been determined immediately. As I have now learned - it is a long process.
I guess one could say I won. ?
I hope the good news of winning my case puts my husband in a good mood - we might have to add a kitten :)

Last night as we tried to get the dogs to go to sleep, we found out Bandit can howl. Loud howling....
I've never had a puppy before. I wonder if I'm am teaching her or... she is teaching me.
Welcome Bandit - our new rottweiler puppy!

He hated that name and asked everyone not to call him Onestone.
After years and years of torment, Onestone finally cracked and said,' If anyone calls me Onestone again I will kill them!'
The word got around and nobody called him that any more.
Then one day a young woman named Blue Bird forgot and said, 'Good morning, Onestone.'
He jumped up, grabbed her and took her deep into the forest where he made love to her all day and all night.
He made love to her all the next day,until Blue Bird died from exhaustion.
The word got around that Onestone meant what he promised he would do.
Years went by and no one dared call him by his given name until a woman named Yellow Bird returned to the village after being away.
Yellow Bird , who was Blue Bird's cousin, was overjoyed when she saw Onestone.
She hugged him and said, 'Good to see you, Onestone.'
Onestone grabbed her, took her deep into the forest, then he made love to her all day, made love to her all night, made love to her all the next day, made love to her all the next night, but Yellow Bird wouldn't die!
OH, come on... take a guess
Think about it -
You're going to love this!
You can't kill Two Birds with OneStone!

Do you remember just a couple weeks ago my washing machine broke and I was propping it together with 2 2X4s? The warranty had run out and I had to have it repaired twice since then.... well, Sunday it broke again for good! Monday, my husband and I went to Sears and bought a top loading GE Profile HydroWave.
When we bought this house three years ago, I bought all new appliances. I had bought the new Frigidaire front loading HE washer and dryer set. It was nothing but problem after problem. I went back to a top loading washer.
My husband had done a lot of research on the computer to find the "perfect" washer. That one had all positive responses. So that is the one we got. I am just happy I don't have to use a wash board :)
*** Day Two - I had a lot of laundry waiting to be washed. This is my 10th load and so far I really like this washer. 1. It is as quiet as they say! 2. The tub, even though it is the same size as the front load washer I had, seems to fit more clothes in it. 3. No more bending to get the clothes out of the tub. 4. The spin cycle works great. I don't seem to have to dry the clothes for as long as the other one. 5. It was less $$ than that front loader and works better! They say if mama's happy everyone's happy. I'm happy.
I'm using my HE detergent in it. I have four bottles of it in the pantry left over from the front load HE we just got rid of. It seems to work ok.
**Special Note: I've had this washer for over a month now. I really like it! It is quiet. It washed my king size bed comforter with no problem. I can't wait until the Frigidaire dryer breaks again. I'll go out and buy the matching dryer to this GE.

Trixie, our little papillon, decided she didn't want to be left out of all the fun came in and watched the cats chase the grasshopper. As the cats were playing with the grasshopper, it jumped and Trixie jumped. In one swallow the grasshopper was gone.
It's not safe to be a grasshopper on Dumbar Street!

We love Sheriff Joe!
Today I worked on the side of the house. There are 30 huge over grown cactus that I repotted. Then there are hundreds of Aloe Vera.... I stood out on my sidewalk and tried to give them away free. ummm I found homes for 10. I still have hundreds to go. I want to dig up that area and put a herb garden.

We have a six screen drive-in here called The Scottsdale Six. It shows movies every night. Since our winters are not like any other states, we have movies all year long. We bring lawn chairs and put them in the back of the truck with a large cooler. They have double features. It is fun and cheap way to entertain grand kids.
My sister makes jewelry. So one time while she was down here visiting, we went in Beads Galore. It doesn't look like much on the outside but... inside is amazing! They make you put your purse in a locker at the front door so I wasn't able to take any pictures of the inside. They do have a web page. If you ever want to kill an hour or two, just browse this store. http://beadsgalore.com/

I can just watch the news every night, if I watch to hear about drinking, stealing, and burning houses down.

After dinner I always walk the dog, our little Papillon, Trixie around the block. We were almost home when a pit bull charged at Trixie and me. The pit bull had Trixie in its mouth. A neighbor came and got the pit bull off of Trixie. Trixie ran home. My husband called 911. The police came along with animal control. They found who owned the dog. The pit bull owners told the policeman that their pool man left their back gate open and their dog got out.
The police told me that animal control was NOT going to take the pit bull because they found the owner AND BECAUSE THE DOG ONLY HURT ANOTHER DOG NOT A KID!
My husband and I were extremely upset. My husband was so upset that he threatened the neighbors. The pit bull owners put a restraining order on my husband. Oh my!
I rushed my dog to the Animal Emergency Clinic. Poor Trixie has one broken leg and huge bite marks on each side of her little back. I got home at midnight from the clinic. We tried to sleep but.... Trixie, even with all the pain medication, whimpered and cried. I stayed up and held her.
I put her down in the morning on a blanket so I could make my husband's lunch. Mindy, our Himalayan Siamese cat, laid down by Trixie and tried to lick her sores.
My job injury disability, the car accident, my house robbed, and now my dog injured...... When does it stop?
