Adventures in weed trimming

Nothing is ever as easy as it seems. I have been needing to clean up some weeds around my house. So I decided today was the day to do this. Exactly I started it today and will have to finish a different day, but more on way in a second.

First here is the before pictures:

So I re spooled the weed trimmer and started working. The top right picture is as far as I got before the weed trimmer broke. So the great start for a new weed trimmer started. First I looked for a replacement, that did not work. The only way to get one was to order it from Black & Decker site. I love this weed trimmer but it is about 15 years old, so time for a new one. I ended up going to Lowe’s and get a Black & Decker ST 4500.

Here is the beautiful thing. It has about twice the power as I am use to. But it works GREAT.

So after about a few hours of actually being able to use the weed trimmer here is the after.

Hopefully I have time to get some of the front done tomorrow. Tell later have a great day.



Disney, Everyday life, Pets


I am going to be making some changes soon and will be switching to http://www.jamiepaws.com . I am in the middle of designing the new site and will let you know as soon as it is launched. I have been working on a lot several different projects and have many things in the works. I have launched a Personal Shopper site recently. http://www.mouseketeerwdwpersonalshopper.com Please fell free to look at it and tell me what you think. I am redesigning the layout of that site too. So the current one is just temporary.

As far as the puppies are doing everyone is good. Freddy, the shit-tzu, has differently found his bark and is letting me know it. He also discovered yesterday that he LOVES balloons. I was not able to get a picture of him playing with it. As son as I get a picture or video I will upload it.

I have a very busy month ahead of me so I hope I can blog and upload things cause I really enjoy doing so. I have an American Legion Conference in the middle of the month for about 4 days. Then at hte end of the month I have family coming to visit and will be going to Disney at the end of the month till July 4th. So that will definitely be pictures from that.




Stressed does not even bring to describe my life right now. I have been trying to get my house clean and organized… Not working out great. I have been taking care of my mother since last November and have been doing a lot for her. Every time we get a few steps ahead and are starting to make progress she goes back in the hospital and we start all over again. I am not complaining I don’t mind taking care of her, even if it can be a thankless job a lot of times. It is just stressful to have a life and balance all the demands of taking care of her and my family at the same time.

I wish sometimes I could get on a plane and go some where for a few days.

I don’t normally post rants here but I had no were else to go.

Thanks for listening.



I am going to be making a few changes to this site. I will this being sharing things from my life. I am going to try harder to post more often (at least once a week). I also started an Etsy shop, so I will be adding that to the site and connecting the two. Please bear with me during the changes.



Sorry I have been MIA

I am so sorry I was missing. A lot has been going on.

Kenn was hospitalized for 16 days in October and had major surgery. He is doing a lot better now. I am proud of him he quit smoking during his hospitalization. It has been 4 months now. He is trying to focus more on his health.
My mom moved in with us in November. It has been along process getting things change from PA to FL for her. She has a good bit of medical problems so that makes things hard. I may or may not talk about her on here, I am not sure.
Kenn and I joined a gym and have been trying to workout 3 times a week. Unfortunately that is on hold cause I sprained my ankle on the 17th. Which was our 5 year wedding anniversary. ­čśŽ
I am thinking of starting to post recipes I create or one I found and tried.
I have pictures of my nail designs from when I was MIA, I will be posting them on Seriously Polished.
Thanks for sticking by me.
