Aches, pains, and Hiding the bodies

Oh my goodness I am tired today. After working 7 days straight at work and having so much to do in the house yesterday I am ready to sit here and be lazy today. Remember all those bodies I was teasing about hiding. Well yesterday I think I really could have strangled someone. I cleaned out all the stuff from my kitchen to get ready for the pest control guy. Took my bird, two cats and dog out of the house for the day and cleaned up in general so the guy could kick his way past the front door. Thankfully he arrived about 10 am., but when he did he informed me that he didn't know why the office sent out letters telling everyone to do the cleaning and removing, that it was NOT necessary. He went on to say that it was an old letter and he wasn't even from that company, that they didn't use them any more. Then he took what looked like a medicine syringe and outlined the edges of the cabinets and left. It took all of 90 second. NINTY seconds for all that hard work. I'm still putting stuff away (because I was to lazy to do it yesterday). I'm telling you I was really ticked off. I just can't believe that the management in this complex is so bad. Our lease is up in the spring and I really hope we can get out of here. I'm dreaming about that mobile (modular) home, and hope we can figure out a way to get into one. My hubby and I went yesterday and looked at the ones they have on the lot again. I think we have narrowed it down to two or three that we like. Hopefully we will qualify for more than I think we will and we can make a solid plan in a few months for one. If not a brand new one then at lest we can start looking around the mobile home parks for someone selling one. I know for sure we wouldn't have to put as much money down on a used one, and I suspect that is the direction we will have to go in due to lack of funds.

As for today, I plan on reading the blogs, finishing up my house work, doing some laundry this afternoon and then just relaxing. My arthritis is kicking my butt lately. My knees are swollen and sore. My friend Merry send me this recipe for an herbal lotion in my email today and I may try and find the ingredients at my local shop for it. I thought I would post it for anyone who is interested.

4 drops marjoram

6 drops juniper

8 drops of sweet birch or wintergreen

3 drops chamomile

3 drops lavender

3 drops ginger

2 oz of carrier oil or lotion

Mix the above ingredients and let blend for 24 hours before using. Massage in to area of pain or inflammation
