SATURDAY JANUARY 19, 2013
6:55 PM

Amy has revovered from her back problem and has returned to work.  She had several days of pain, but appears to be back to normal now.  She has been off work since Dec. 1, 2012.  She is glad to be back a work.

The weather was nice here today.  The temp was in the low 60 degrees and this afternoon I worked in the yard.  I moved a lot of stuff out of site on the back part of the house.  Last week I cleaned up an area behind the old horse barn.  Today I went through the stuff I had stored around the barn.  I moved most of it behind the barn.  The stuff is still in area, but you cannot see it unless you walk to the barn and look behind the barn.

Thursday and Friday of this week I installed quarter round in the bathrooms.  When we had the new floors installed I told the installers to throw away the quarter round.  I purchased new quarter round the week the floor was installed, but I had never installed the new.  I cut, stained and varnished and then installed the new quarter round.  It makes the bathrooms look mutch better.

The weather has been cold the last few days.  We have had a lot of rain and some sleet.

My truck was hit by a deer last Friday night.  I was driving from Corinth about 8:00 pm going down the highway at about 65 miles per hour.  Out of the night a deer appeared and hit the left side of my truck.  My brother in law was with me and we both thought that there would be damage to the truck.  When the deer hit my truck it made a loud noise and rocked the truck.  I drove to the next town and pulled in to a gas station with good lights.  We got out expecting to see a lot of damage.  We could find no scratch on the truck.  There was some hair on the running board and some blood and hair on the rear tire and rim.  We could not believe there was no damage.

The weather today  has been in the lower 60's today.  I picked  up the limbs that have fallen in the front yard over the past several weeks.  I then changed the oil and filters in my riding lawn mowers.  Grass cutting season will be here in a few short weeks and I wanted the mowers to be serviced and ready when the grass starts growing.

I went back to the doctor in Tupelo last week.  I had thought that he was going to do a procedure, but he decided to wait.  I will go back the last of January and he will make a decision on that date.

I have been enjoying my heated garage for the last several days.  I have spent quite a bit of time in the garage.  I have added some more shelves and unpacked an rearranged some of the items in the garage.  I still have to unpack some of my stuff from Wynne, but I have most of it arranged in the shop.

Amy is still off work with her back.  She thinks that she will go back to work late next week.  She had to go to the doctor on Monday.  She thought she had the flu, but it was not.  The doctor gave her some shots and medicine.  She is doing much better today.

I have been going to the coffee shop several days a week.  I enjoy visiting with the guys.

It is in the middle fifty degrees here today, but it has rained just about all day.  The temp for Saturday is predicted to be 73.  If it is that warm I will probably do some work in the yard.  I need to pick up some limbs that have fallen during the last few weeks.

Tommy has bought another accounting firm.  He plans to combine the two businesses in to one.  This new firm has a large amount of tax business, so he will be very busy from now till April 15.  He is excited about the additional business.  He has done some tax work over the years, but his tax business will greatly expand.  I am proud for him.

Pat has purchased an i pad.  She is learing how to use it.  She has wanted one for a while and now she has her very own.

THURSDAY JANUARY 3, 2013

It has been several days since I have written on this blog.  A lot has gone on since I last wrote.

I will be going to the surgeon in Tupelo today.  He plans to do a procedure that will correct a problem that I have dealt with since last April.  I hope this procedure works.

Amy has been off of work since the first of December.  She hurt her back at work and has not been able to to to work.  She has also moved since I last wrote.  I helped her move.  I had to make a trip to Wynne to get some of her household items from storage.  She and her roommate have a house now.  Her roommate bought a home in Southhaven.  They had been living in an apartment.  They seem to like the house much better.


We had a good Christmas time.  This year my family came to our house for breakfast.  For the last several years we have been going to my brothers home for breakfast.  Amy spent several days here during December.  She was not able to work, so she came home to be with family.  Her boyfriend came Christmas day and spent the day.  We enjoyed having him here that day and Amy for the several days she was able to spend with us.

I have been working in my garage quite a bit during the last several days.  No big projects, just being able to get our to the house.  I did add a TV to the garage in December.  I had one in Wynne, and I missed having a TV in the garage here in Iuka.

I went to the courthouse yesterday and had the property here in Iuka put in my name.  When I bought the property I gave mother a lifetime estate.  That meant that it stayed in her name until her death.  She died last January, but you have to wait until the first of next year to make the change.

I will try to write more often than I have during the last few weeks.
