seems perfect for her I am going to look at it tomorrow morning at 10AM I picked the apartment she lived in over here before without her seeing it and she liked it I hope I can do it again They are iffy on her cat but I told them that it s been with her for 11 years and been good company for her My fear is that they will charge her some outrageous amount to have it Help me Pray about all of this

Broken Bow OK USA 522 Posts Posted Sep 15 2012 06 35 21 AM Excuse me sisters as I crawl up her on the porch wrap myself in a quilt with maybe a cup of hot chocolate and shed a few tears It s been a very hard week This week I discovered something horrible that will put a friend of mine in jail I just started working as secretary for a large cabin rental management bussiness The owners mr and mrs j are very close friends of mine We go to church together homeschool together we have taken trips together and we spend holidays at eachothers house I ve worked for them cleaning cabins and by being the bed and breakfast caretaker while they went on vacation I have done the books for other companies and our church so when their old secretary said she was moving they asked me if I d take the job I was thrilled The old secretary we ll call she T and I were close friends too She has been a single mom for the last few years and as a old hat at the single mom thing I ve been helping her out Her daughter is special needs and we spent alot of time talking about how to help her Anyway this week I was trying to reconcile the accounts for Mr j And something wasn t matching up I am the type that all the numbers have to add up or I ll go back and redo it till it does Well the account wouldn t figure right So I went back a month to find the problem and boy did I After printing off check images and digging around I found it and I began to shake I had to look for more proof before opening this can of worms and I did My friend T has been stealing money from Mr and mrs j She would write checks to herself forge Mr j signature and then delete the check from the ledger T then increased amounts on other checks to hide the amount she took After a few days of digging we found over 73 000 worth of forged and stollen checks We were all heartbroken Now of course the bussiness is pressing charges but since I found it I had to file the complaint I have had to be interviewed by the sherrif and will have to be inteviewed by the investigators the DA and I ll have to get on the stand during trial Due to the large amounts and how many checks and that she involved the Fed Taxes T is facing years in jail I cannot get her daughter s face out of my head Poor child Mr and Mrs j are heartbroken because they loved and trusted T so much It s just bad all the way around I feel sick So yeah wrapped up in a quilt with hot chocolate is about all I can manage today Please pray for everyone this is touching Shanda Farmgirl 4233 Cherime True Blue Farmgirl 1222 Posts Cherime Wasilla Alaska USA 1222 Posts Posted Sep 15 2012 07 35 51 AM Shanda let me fill that cup for you honey How horrible all the way around Will be praying for the situation and all involved She must have been desperate for money to have done that On another note my DD needs prayer That horrible place where she was working did a shuffle because the director of two other places could not get grants through so they put him in over my DD because he had a contract It has gone from bad to worse and they are restructuring DD position so now she is laid off With Type I diabetes she must have health insurance and must find another position She has been putting out resumes but with the present economic situation jobs are difficult to find in the non profit sector and people are lined up and out the door With winter coming on this is difficult and on top of that they slashed many other positions to part time Now that she is out of there I am planning on taking on a bit of clean up on that place Peg glad to hear that you are not in danger of another bathroom camp out Sorry that your son got food poisoning That is sure a drag One has to be soooooo careful where they eat and what they eat these days Janet I know the feeling My sewing machine is calling I have a couple of baby blankets that I want to get finished I am hoping to have a reasonable season bazaar wise Could use the money for sure Girls those mouse

I can give you a shoulder to lean on and a big HUG Oh how easily sin insnares us I am praying for all concerned as that is just sooooo heart and gut wrenching Good for you for exposing it so it could be dealt with but sad for you too as no one wants to believe a friend and sister in Christ could do that Just remember Shanda that desperate times cause people to do desperate things She is NOT a bad person but her actions were very very bad Love the person hate their sin Unfortunately all sin has consequences and bigger sins bigger consequences WOW that s all so awful Patsy don t you love to find

your DD also God will provide On a simialar note a friend of mine named Kim just had her entire Dept at work deleted by the State They can reapply for other jobs but the dept they each qualify for is really being mismanaged and in utter chaos So Kim is asking for Wisdom to know whether or not to draw unemployment for awhile and look for a better job or if God wants her to become part of the solution for the State Office or not So when you pray for your DD keep Kim in prayer too Back Later girls peggy Farmgirl 1326 http ladyinredsite blogspot com Leave Your Cares Behind Join Us On The

you wouldn t dare wrong thing to say giggle she let it fly got it in my hair so I picked up a fist full of it smeared it into her face Then we really ended up in a brawl until my mom came back into the kitchen and knocked our heads together Trust me pancakes are easier to clean up So lesson learned pick your food fights carefully LOL Janet I would end up bringing half the sons store home with me

where everybody else was The bathroom has a double fold door on it which I have never seen the likes of before When I tried to come back out I couldn t get the door to work I pulled pulled Then I hollered but nobody could hear me from the other end So I pulled out my cell and called my hubby and he comes to my rescue wondering what could be wrong After all he had just left me at the bathroom So I told him to try o get me out So he pulled it open and stares at me blankly like what s the problem I said I did push once or twice but not hard I mean after all I didn t want to break anything before Mom pays her first installment Then I had Mom come inside with me ad see if she could open it She just pushed on it and stared at me like Is there a problem hahaha Now why couldn t I do that

the line due to the wind So here in a minute I have to go check and see if it is still there or down at the neighbors Just love that outside smell Not many women hang clothes out around here anymore I

you and your kids We are going through pics for my daughter for senior slide show and my goodness you forget the things that happened I get to laughing at some of the pics I was very lucky and got to

look for one I use loose teas all the time Well I talked to my mom yesterday Her friend fell the first day she was there She was all hell bent on moving in with him and I tried to explain to her that he is 82 years old and is probably looking more for a nurse than anything With him falling it hit home right away Her comment was you were right He is an old man I was kind of looking forward to her moving actually I would have had the house to myself Sad to say I understand her looking for a way to deal with her future and possibly losing her house I ll be able to help for a while but eventually I want to move out and on my own someday Netty funny about the blanket We have a major wind problem here too I would never even try Glad you found your blankie though Tammy your house is cute I agree

off the clothes line I usually end up fishin it out of the cattails at the edge of the pond though That always stinks I lost my clothes line when we moved If the nieghbors move in a few months like they said I might be able to put a small one up The backyard smells like dog poo from their massive mut and them not pickin it up I m waitin patiently though Bunny Congats on the job I ve been loungin and loafin most of this week I have a mountain of laundry and nothin thawed or planned for dinner tonight I guess I need to get my duff off this couch a little more often Lol I have been busy in a way Hubby traded one of his many guitars for a small drum set I have been lookin up videos for him to learn how to play them I also found a few people who give lessons and might be willin to trade for guitar lessons He was thrilled about that I also have been studyin up on beadin and jewelry makin tryin to learn some of the newer methods I was taught by a nearly 80y o gentleman back when I was about 13y o Needless to say it has been many years since then and now I am faced with shoppin in regular stores for my supplies I had always bought them at the NMLRA shoot and flea market but nearly all of my suppliers aren t on the circuit anymore so I am searchin out new places to find them I was told by a shop owner that I am so far behind the times I am in danger of not bein able to locate any supplies I need to update my methods and material choices so I can continue to create if my old school things disappear I guess I was a little taken aback by a woman much older than me standin there tellin me I was old school I thought I was really good at my beadwork and I thought that the basic supplies I used were timeless I guess not I m just not real sure I care for the newer styles and the newer materials I can t weave with most of them and I definitely can t put them on my beadin loom I even found a place that sells machine woven premade sections for addin into handmade jewelry I have always made my own and that s the main thing I do on my jewelry Wow I definitely wouldn t call theirs handmade Okay Enough rantin about time passin by I guess I really did start off a little behind the times in the first place I just don t like bein reminded that I m gettin older I guess I ll get on that laundry now I apparently need to free up my weekend for some library time and some

Peg I had morning sickness with every one of the three little dears I lived on saltines and 7up in the mornings Janet we have what amounted to a hurricane up here last month and it took out loads of trees At one point there was not a chain saw chain to be had in either Anchorage or the valley People were parked on the side of what amounts to our only freeway up here cutting up downed trees and loading them up I think a few people got tickets for harvesting the State s trees but a whole lot more people got a bunch of wood for the winter Good luck on the algebra Bunny I think they make you take that stuff only to keep the profs in tenure Kim it is so nice when we see the fruit of our labors Blessings all CMF DEW True Blue Farmgirl 317 Posts Dianne Weiser Idaho USA 317 Posts Posted Oct

5247 Posts Posted Oct 10 2012 01 36 14 AM Well Miss Maranda so glad to see you on the Porch this morning yes I was lurking earlier wink Don t you just hate the whole flea thing with pets I will remember that orange trick and the Lavendar I keep lavendar on hand I unlike you never want to be able to look a flea in the eye ball lol You must have them BiG in Texas Oh I have not had Molasses Bread for about 4 years Sounds good Can I come over But only if your texas size fleas are all gone Take care and I hope you get your Wedding Dress started this wknd Cherime I too had morning sickness with all of mine In fact it was more like 9 month sickness But it did get better the farther along I got I lived on peppermints and crackers That is funny about people cutting up downed trees and taking it home for firewood They would have fined people big time here for doing that Why I don t know I see nothing wrong with that myself Dianne hope you are feeling better girl My DH is getting cranky the older he gets He will always apologize later but still it was nicer when I felt like he really missed me the times I was gone I try not to take it personally but it does bother me sometimes I think because I decided that I wasn t staying home IF I got opportunities to go places with my kids friends or to see my grand daughters he gets a bit jealous and he hates being a lone when I am gone BUT since he retired and I medically retired we stay home a lot and I being 8 yrs younger than him don t want to just sit around watching each other grow old I am going to live my life to the fullest even with my own medical limitations I refuse to be like my little sister was at the end of her life never leaft her house for four years and was bed ridden for the last 2 years Her and I talked about that a lot And I promised her that I was not going to stop MOVING because once you do your body just starts shutting down And she got extremely cranky and hard to live with Her husband was a saint caring for her day and night for those four years I m glad you and your hubby continue the sweetness between you That is how it should be And it is sad when that deminishes in a relationship Praying that you two will find that little slice of heaven that you are looking for out of town Janet We are getting ready to share in your rainy weather We are suppose to have rain starting this Friday through the following Tuesday Ugh I have been spoiled with 3 months of no rain My body has felt half way decent in all the sunshine and dryness Ruthie Ann I am so sorry to hear that you got sick Sending some Chicken Soup you way too Hope you get better soon Try to post some pictures of what you are making and I bet you will get some sales off The Porch Ok my lovelies it is

had 9 month of morning sickness with one but did not want to mention that as I was trying to positively bless your DIL and I really do not like to think about that part Janet your porch sounds like mine just enough to keep the show off of the door so you can get into the house I know about the flea thing Out in the bush when we lived there the way we killed things off was to make sure there were no filled water buckets in the house farm out the house plants for a couple of days go to Anchorage and let the house freeze At 20 nothing survives past that no matter how far it has burrowed in On the man in a snit thing you do not have to be older to have that trouble My SIL bless his heart can get into a snit at the drop of a hat my DD sewing instead of cleaning when the house is already white glove clean she spends too much time out while he is home lets see he doesn t get to his morning coffee in time even though he is the one who makes it any old port in a storm for him But you know he does not really understand that he is not helping marital relations My DD has resolved that if anything happens to him NO MORE MEN Ruthie take care of your self Diane praying Blessing all and back to work CMF Lieberkim True Blue Farmgirl 839 Posts Kimberly Sunnyside WASHINGTON USA 839 Posts Posted Oct 10 2012 10 26 50 AM Good Morning Porchies My day is starting out wonderfully Spent time in the Word and prayer It s SO true that if you submit to God you ll have joy even if not happiness Can t say I m happy with the situation I find myself in but I can say that the Lord is giving me such peace and joy as I obey Doing another Bible study at church It s a Beth Moore one Breaking Free I m enjoying it although it hasn t been as earth shattering for me as the Esther one Of course we ve just started Also reading a slew of books It seems that the older ladies of the churches aren t doing their job of teaching we younger ones so I went to my friend who is my age but who is decades wiser than I will ever be I asked her for a list of her favorite books on how to be a woman of God and a godly wife and mother I just bought most of the books she suggested BIG ORDER and I m devouring them She said that she couldn t find any older women in the church to advise teach her as Scripture says so she turned to books I m going to do the same Maybe someday I ll be able to do the older woman job and help the younger ones as Scripture teaches although right now it seems doubtful P Glad to hear that Jim is improving Hope the doctors get some answers and ease his suffering Sorry to hear about those feeling ill Colds and flues are so tough Something I use that can kill it before it gets started is called ColdCalm It s a homeopathic medicine you can get it in the healthfood store I have it on hand and then as soon as someone complains about a throat being sore or a stuffy feeling head we attack with ColdCalm If you start at the first sign of illness it can actually stop you from getting the cold If you wait a little to long it will help you deal with the cold Another thing I use is called Cold FX It s a natural medicine that hammers the cold too It is also best if used at the first sign of illness but it can help even if you wait a little to long I ve actually killed colds with it LOVE killing them little buggers EmergenC is also good It s a drink with tons of minerals etc in it Gives your immunities a little kick in the butt But sometimes no matter what you do the cold is going to get you Get well quickly DEW excited about the possible house In Weiser or somewhere else Sounds dreamy I d love to have 15 acres which just sounds hilarious to my own ears because where I come from we talk about our land in 1 4 sections sections and townships But 15 acres down here you can do something with I ll be praying that God works out the details and opens and closes the doors for you Better run recess is almost over and it s time to get back to school Kimberly

and loved the nice weather also I went down to see my folks today and it was a nice visit Dad needed his hair cut so I did that Then I went out to cemetary to see my brother and you know this is the first time I cried out at the cemetary since his death back in 2004 He was only 46 when he passed We were pretty close just we both were pretty hard headed and we could get into some really good arguements I sure do miss him and I am thinking it is because my folks are getting up there in age and my mother is getting signs of early dementia and my brother was always the strong one My other brother is older than myself also but he is so soft hearted he can t handle things quite as well so it is left up to me to be the stronger one and I don t like it one bit I have even noticed my Dad seems to leaning more on me crying I am having trouble dealing with this right now because this is when I would call my older brother that passed it seemed he always had the answer my husband is not easy to talk to and it just seems like he don t get what I am saying Usally he just tells me it will be ok His family is not the hugging type and I think they are afraid to show to much emotion I am just the oppostite I love hugs and I show my emotions very easily Please pray for me I know God will take care of things it just seems like I am kinda alone right now Thank you sisters for listening to me I didn t get on here to drop all of this in your laps it just started coming out Netty LadyInRed True Blue Farmgirl 5247 Posts PeggyAnn Vancouver WA USA 5247 Posts Posted Oct 11 2012 12 47 35 AM
