** My Stinky Problem Update :
I called today and the calls were forwarded to a call center. Both offices nearest us were in meeting in Ft. Worth. I was told to call them (my local office) tomorrow morning. So…still in limbo on repayment, reimbursement, or restocking my tank. I’m hoping for a resolution tomorrow. Thank you to everyone that left comments…and similar stories.
Our temps are dropping and supposed to be in the low 30’s by 1 A.M.
I was lying in bed last night thinking about all the things I needed to do today; knowing that cold weather was coming.
- Call the propane company
- Make sure there is plenty of bedding in the chicken coop.
- Cover our Fall garden beds…with hoop frames, sheets and plastic.
- Bathe the dogs and make sure they can stay inside tonight. Whooo! I was not looking forward to that one.
Buster likes sleeping on the concrete side porch…and at one time he enjoyed his bath…now that he is LARGE…not so much. If I had the money, I wonder, would I pay to have him groomed? Probably not. But it is a hard job. The Honey dried him with the blow dryer. A first! …and a funny one, too.
I thought about ALL OF this last night—while lying in bed, AND it was so quiet. Yes, we live in the country. But we live near a busy 2 lane Farm to Market Hi-way… trucks, cars, traffic in general travel this road it seems ALL NIGHT SOME TIMES.
…But last night. It was eerily quiet. The neighbor on the end has a nice little homestead. NONE of his animal were making a sound. NONE of ours were making a sound. Buster slept peacefully on the side porch. No donkeys on the prairies braying.
I had to wake the Honey to tell him.
He wasn’t impressed. Heheheehee! What could I say… I couldn’t sleep. I finally had to get up and turn the fan on so that the quiet noise would help me to sleep!
When I can’t sleep—I lie there…just thinking about all the things I need to do tomorrow. It is a never ending list, I tell you.
This is the worst… When I’m in bed and I can’t sleep—I begin to pray. A lot of times—I nod right off. Not proud of that, but it’s true.
What do you do when you can’t sleep?
Shout joyfully to the LORD all the earth. Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with Joyful singing. “
~ Psalm 100: 1-2
