Well I am at the library and fixing to look up some patterns to try and fill up my cd that I am making of knit and crochet patterns. I might look up some patterns for making quilts. Well I found some and there are not that much on www.freepatterns.com/ there are some nice things in the knitting and crochet part of it put not much in the quilting. I even looked in the beading section and found much more then quilting. I want to start hand quilting but my wife is fighting me tooth and nail.

Hospital and Dad

So my step-father went into the hospital last night. He is one of those people who has a forever yard sale, and someone tried to steal one of his guitars. So he runs after the man and jumps on the car and goes down the road aways and then falls off. He broke his collar bone and has road rash real bad. I think he as been watching to much cop shows and he to old to be doing that stuff. Well he at home now, and he has a chip out of his spine. His arm is in a sling.
So Tropical Storm Fay is still being a pain we are getting rain and storms as far south as Tampa, the sun makes a peek around the the clouds and then another storm moves though. The electricity went out yesterday and the phone came back on with out seeing a repair man. I think that I am going to have to rerun the phone wires around the house. I would love to build my own home but I am to lazy for that. So everyone thinks. If I was to do it it would have to be in stages. like one room at a time. The biggest thing is that it takes money to do things like that and we have none. We do not even have the money for me to go see my parents. If I was to do it, it would not bee anytime soon, and be payed for by the time I was done.

Hurricane Update

Well here it is Tuesday I am off of work due to the hurricane and thanking god that it is not going to hit us. The wife got some batteries for me. We have water and food, but it is not can or dry food. I found some 72 hour food packs that I would not mind getting, for just in case of problems with whatever. The wife keeps smoking so I keep smoking. This time the reason was because of the hurricane. I found all kind of things that I would like to get for camping and emergency. but it costs money to get and we are broke. The wife has been using coupons for just about everything. And I have yet to see any of them on sale or have a coupon for them. I would love to get a propane gas stick that hooks up to a big tank and you can then hook up a gas grill and a light with other things. I need some cast iron pots and pans to cook on the grill. The hurricane is now southeast of us and the cone of probably has my county in it and I really do not think that it will hit us.

Well I just looked at http://media.myfoxtampabay.com/myfoxhurricane/ for the latest update and there is another wave out there in the Atlantic. The spaghetti model is headed to the Caribbean sea. I hope that this one fizzles out in the Atlantic. I do not want to see another horrible natural disaster.

Well I have gained all my weight back and have been bad on my smoking. I have no will power. I have yet to play with my magic cards today. Had to run to the store and get some stuff and none of it was for Hurricane Fay. I need to go back on the diet and lose 50 pounds.
