Good morning to my fellow readers.
I am feeling depressed this morning, and have a few momments while I wait for a loar of laundry to finish washing.
I had another one of my lovely exspensive weekends. I am typing on my wifes lap top because to start the weekend My monitor all of a sudden started hissing then a big crack and nothing. So now I need a new monitor. Then I went to mow the lawn. I had to wait most of the ay for the dew to dry off then I took the battery charger of the riding lawn mower and started in. I got a big whopping 200 feet mowed and the bloody thing died. So I pushed it back up the hill to the house and put the battery charge back on.
Of course it was dead, so I let it charge over night and just hoped that it was not the aldernator or the battery that was shot. So I got up Sunday morning, made breakfast and enjoyed watching the kids easter egg hunt. I got the ham into the oven with a apple juice spice mix, and a leg of lamb grouton with a mint and mediterain dry fruit stuffing. (sorry for the spelling, and the spell check on here does not like my computers) So after that I went outside to mow for a while, while the meat cooked. I had a full charge so now to see if that was the problem. It start right up, so off I go to mow the lawn. I drove all of about 50 ft and bang. THe engine stops and I knew this wasn't going to be good. Sure enough I started the engine again and it turned over but it was turning way to fast and not ignighting. Yup!!! As sure as I can be I had to have buste the piston shaft. Needless to say I got real depressed, and now I have to mow the 3/4 acre lawn and garden with the push mower.
I went to bed early (IN MY DIAPER) and read for a while and finally went to sleep about two hours later. We are going to the beach for spring break and I am going to do my grounding exersizes, and hopefully come back refreshed.
So enough with my whinning, and besides I HAVE TYPED FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTED AND (just hit the damn cap lock instead of the shift button AGAIN) this blasted computer should do its lovely lock up thing in a few seconds.
I must remember my signature line that my best friend/father figure/an more of a college advisor then my college advisor taught me; Illagitumus non-carborundum! Don't let the basterds grind you down!
See yall in three days
