I would like to thank the previous owners of my house for leaving me a tacky light fixture in the dining room, because it gave me something to do Sunday whenever I got bored. I am no electrician, so you can imagine my confusion whenever I attempted to take it down from the ceiling...So....I ended up leaving it hanging and lined the floor with newspaper to catch the flying paint particles, and I taped newspaper on the ceiling so that my white ceiling wouldn't turn black. Sounds like a new "you might be a redneck" joke...You might be a redneck if you leave up your chandeleir and spray paint it, instead of taking it down. Isn't it amazing what a can of spray paint can fix??!!

I tell you, it just seems to be whenever bad news comes our way that it comes in tsunami size waves!! I received our electric bill the other day and to my surprise it was $499.51!! That is a $260.00 increase from the last month! I have called out there too see if they would come to check our meter, incase there is a problem with it, but of course I was told to read my meter everyday at the same time each day and call her back in 5 days and by hearing what kilowatts we use daily she could tell us if there was a problem with it... I guess I was just under the impression that our tax dollars and fees that we pay to this company monthly was to pay our bill, and to service their customers when they need their help, but I guess not, it sounds like it is paying them to just sit on their tails and tick off their customers.
Also, my husband truck is messing up once again, and apparently he needs a new radiator! The estimate was around $450.00 parts, labor, and all...but goodness gracious! I must not have found this money tree that is planted in our backyard. A tax refund couldn't come soon enough:(, but I guess I will just have to wait it out for just a few more months.
On a better note, I am SUPER excited about the National Championship game tonight!! ROLLLLLLLLLLLL TIIIIIIDDDDEEEEEEEEEEE ROLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!
Did you catch that I am a HUGE Bama fan? :)
