For a person who is on a tight budget she always seems to call me just to talk. Her number is blocked so she has to unblock it to call me at home and it shows "unavailable" when she calls my cell, but she called me today and I knew she was out and about with someone else so I thought she was stuck somewhere and needed help, otherwise I would have waited to answer it. But I did. and it was just to tell me she a truck (is test driving it), got insurance for it, on her way to Douglas, etc. Why are you wasting you cell minutes, when your a pre-paid phone for that matter, just to tell me something you can tell me when you get home? That makes no sense.

Good Morning

Sometimes I wish if K was going to call me early in the morning that it would be for a good reason. Just to say Good Morning. Not to tell me that her neighbor, from across the street, dog's was out (AGAIN) and was in her yard (AGAIN) and that her dog was trying to attack it. Now I am a dog lover and don't wish harm to any animal but I have no sympathy for her today. I have told her to call the cops every time this dog is out running loose, getting in her yard, whatever the case may be. If you don't call, the dog doesn't have a record of disturbances and they don't know to keep an eye out for him. I know this because I have called about the dog 2 streets over from me. See the post I wrote about that here.

Did you read it? Ok so now your caught up. The dog that is 2 streets over has charged me several times, not only when I have taken my dog for a walk but when it's just Savie and I. That is where I draw the line. I understand that dogs being dogs, they will protect what they see as theirs, but to charge me when I am walking with my daughter will get you hurt. It doesn't matter what the breed is so I won't even tell you what the dog is but I have called about this dog several times. Every time. Not just when I am with Savie. this dog needs to be controlled. I blame the dogs actions on the owner.

Why you ask? Ever you ever seen people let their dogs out on a deserted road and then take off? try to 'race' the dog home?Yeah well that's what this guys does. Across one of the few major streets that we have in town. Not that far from a blind curve where people are driving 45MPH. This dog is going to get hurt. I have almost hit it once. (Going to the store after dark almost didn't see it when I turned the corner, doesn't help that this is a dark colored dog.)

So if she's going to get upset because the dog finally gets into her yard and messes with her lamb. and dog. and puppies. I can't help her.

another rant

I hate to just keep harping on the same thing but K is really annoying. You would think that after a day or so of not talking to me she would get the hint that I don't have the time, or desire, to sit and talk on the phone for hours at a time. And it's not just with her, it's in general. I think the last time I spent more than 20 minutes on the phone talking to someone I was on hold. Yes I know that sounds mean and everything but I have a life. I have other things to do with my day. My day does not revolve around a bunch of animals in my house. I have a daughter to feed, pay attention to, clean up after, dishes to wash, clothes to wash/dry/fold/put away, etc.

Yesterday was Easter, time for family to be together doing whatever they do. I got 3 emails and 2 phone calls from her just "saying hi". Today I have gotten 4 phone calls, 1 email and 1 IM. Really?!?!?!? What part of this is hard to understand that I am busy or off doing something else? Do I have to actually say it? I must because she is just not getting the hints.

As far as I know I am one of 4 people in town that she talks to, then there are the few people from her church, and her friends from Oregon or wherever. From what I understand she spends a lot of time on the phone to the point that she bought a headset. Maybe it's just me bit that seems like a lot of time to be spending on the phone when your not working or looking for work. I think that time could be spent doing something else but that's just my opinion.

Excuse me while I yawn

you would think I was K is a high maintenance person, this is something that I learned months ago but because I have a very hard telling people no, I can't get away from her. I feel guilty for not helping her (ummmm religious or something) or listening to her but when she goes on and on......and on......and on about the same thing for 30 minutes it makes it a little hard to listen let alone care about what is going on with her. I know it doesn't sound nice but it's hard to listen to someone go on and on about having sick puppies in the house when I'm trying to get my daughter dressed. And yes I've said it to her that I need to go and take care of things in my house
She doesn't get it. She never will. Everything that she does or had is better than it is here. I may have said this before but she doesn't listen. She seems to think that AZ is worse then OR, that people don't know what they are doing here. A couple of good examples

A couple of months ago a transformer box blew up across the street from her house, nothing big, just a big spark didn't even have to call the fire dept. Her response? "I guess they just don't make them like they do in X"

I'm sorry, they weren't made here, some company somewhere made them so it's not like the city of Bisbee made them and put them up.

The weather here changes fast, especially during monsoon season I've learned. Well she checks the weather and it says one thing and then she comes back a couple of hours later and it's changed. "Oh great, they changed the weather on me again, typical."

Um isn't that what weather does? Change?

Those are just two that I can think of off the top of my head but there will always be more, lol.
