I Need a Tape Recorder

So…it’s been pretty damned busy. I’ve been dealing with damaged roofs, damaged cars, insurance deductibles, work, and life. But in between all the shit, we managed to find time to go out and eat!! Yes, we hit up our favorite Mexican food place…you know, the one that was so good but sucked…that one! We walked…

I Need Two New Roofs

Last week was crazy. Texas was hit by some bad storms, some of which are still ongoing. Houston is basically underwater and Dallas and San Antonio were hit hard by hail storms. San Antonio’s hail storm came through last Tuesday evening. We get hail storms occasionally but they are fairly few and far between. Last…

I Need a 1099R

Yesterday, I took a half day off from work so I could run my mom around to make some bill payments and get certain financial information so I can finish putting all my mom’s bills on auto-pay. So, we ran from one bank to another, making payments and gathering financial information. We went to my…

I Need to Get Back to Work

I was on the phone with work non-stop from eight o’clock in the morning until shortly before noon. So, I thought it might be nice to take a break and take my mom and aunt out to enjoy the day. I decided to take them both to lunch for Mexican food. I don’t know why…

I Need to Hit Something

So, last month I bought a punching bag. I’ve always liked the idea of being able to punch something when I get mad, or frustrated, but I’ve never done much with that idea; however, after a conversation with my brother (you know, THAT conversation) about his lack of helping me in dealing with my mom,…

I NEED To Take a Hike

No. Seriously. I really do need to take a hike. Just when I’ve lost enough weight to feel comfortable hiking again (1.8 pounds lost this week), life has conspired to keep my hiking boots firmly planted on paved walking trails and even that has not happened over the last week or so. I’ve been so…

My “I Don’t Needs”

We’re all driven by need, whether we want to admit it or not. In general, most of us know the difference between wanting and needing something and if we’re completely honest with ourselves, many of the things we need are actually things we want. However, when I say, I need to live in Italy, I…
