I wasn’t familiar with the line from a country song I’m using today but sorta liked it! Stacy will probably know it since it’s more in one of her genres of music. A list is what I need today…..

1. Need to put sheets on the beds upstairs so Katelyn will have someplace to sleep. Kathryn has to do some recruiting for work at nights this week so I’ll keep Katelyn 2 days. 🙂
2. Will need “kid” food from the store! Milk that’s not skim plus m&m’s or something she can get as a prize for going to the potty, oh the joys of potty training!
3. The washer appears to be fixed finally so I need to catch up on laundry. The washer, oh my what an ordeal, a post in itself!
4. I had a bad bout with my mouth/jaw and tmj last week but it’s so much better now. I asked the dentist about it a few months ago and he said that’s what I probably have but not bad enough to do anything…it usually only flares up once or twice a year but if I knew some way to keep it from happening again, I’d be good with that!
4. We don’t need another hurricane in our gulf coast states but it looks like Ike might be tracking for somewhere there again. Ugh.
5. I finally ordered another slow cooker, broke the lid a couple of months ago to the one I use most often. It came in today but I’m a little conflicted about what to do. It said white when I ordered it, but this one is sort of silver or grayish in color; I think I can live with that. But the lid has a small dent in the metal frame around the inside! I wasn’t happy to see that but it does however appear to fit onto the pot ok. I’m frustrated to pay 40 bucks for something and have it come in with a dent; not sure whether trying to send it back will accomplish anything or be worth it in the long run. Guess I’ll show hubby tonight and ask his opinion. Not sure you can see it or it shows up good but here’s the dent (maybe too small to worry over?)

6. I was glad the sun was out today so that I could get out to walk! It’s a little hot here but it felt good to walk.

What’s on your list today?

go for a walk, say a little prayer
take a deep breath of mountain air

    That’s one of my favorite Toby Keith songs. I have that whole CD and that one, “My List” is probably my favorite from that CD (I have another CD of his I love, because it has “American Soldier” on it).

    Yeah for keeping Katelyn, I bet she’ll have fun and I know you and Liz will too. Is Sam coming too?

    Glad your mouth is better, did you go to the doctor? Go and see if there’s something they can prescribe for when it flares up.

    Bummer on the dent. Is it from a place you’ve used before? Check their site and maybe email them. They will probably send you another one and you’ll just have to mail that one back in the same box. I can see the dent and that would bug me to pay good money and have something come in not 100%. Most online places are really good about it, especially since you’ve got photographic evidence!

    I didn’t walk outside, but did get on the treadmill. I needed it after all of the BAD food we ate all weekend 🙂 Your foot must be totally healed? I hope you’re wearing your shoes around the house to help your p.f. not flare up.

    Have fun with the grandkids!

    I am working on a long list too! The dent would definitely bug me. I would email them and let them know just to see what they are willing to do.

  3. Susanne Says:

    I agree with the others. Paying $40 and getting something with a dent would bug me. Different if you got it for a cheaper price because of it. I would email them and tell and then put the ball in their park and ask what they will do about it. They might just mail you a new one and tell you to throw that one out.

    Glad your mouth feels better.

    Too much to name on your page….but I’m glad with cooler temps headed this way you got a new slow cooker for soups and such.
    I have a jaw problem too. My dentist says I grind my teeth at night so there fore I got a muscle relaxer that knocked me out…I dont take them all the time only when it flares up. He also said the grinding of teeth is caused by stress….
    Sooooooo……I stripped sheets today too…I’m glad the little one will be around…you will be going through what I go through daily…lol….I’m praying too for no storms as we leave for the Fl panhandle 10/4……fingers crossed.

    I vote for letting the company know about the dent, too. They may tell you to keep it, but if not should send you a free mailing label for sending it back. It’s the little things that can be so aggravating, don’t you think?

  6. amy Says:

    I love that song as well. I need a list!

  7. kreed Says:

    Oooooh – so aggravating when you buy something and it is not perfect! Especially when you order it and can’t make a quick run to the store to exchange it.
