The plan for the day

Yes, I suppose it is always nice to have a plan...And last night my plan was to get up early to start implementing my new schedule I made using the Managers of their Homes book. But, I didn't get up until 7:45. Can I blame my hubby? Why sure, right? Everything else is his fault!

He sometimes doesn't ruse himself out of bed until late-- freedoms of being a one-man business, I suppose. No one expects him to be at work, so he can pick his hours to get to the shop. Bad side, is sometimes he doesn't get home until way way too late.

So, today, he asked me to go to the shop and wire his dust collector. I am a self-taught electrician, plumber, floor re-finisher, HVAC girl, dry-waller...and I can even cut in a wall pretty well (painting-but some one else gave me some tips on that). I need to add a 240 volt circuit. A first for me and I must say, the book is sort of worrying me--not really, but I think it's supposed to. It has mentioned about 10 times that 240 can kill you! Duh, I know that! I think was makes it a tad more worrisome is seeing on the news last night that a woman and her child got electrocuted waiting for a bus. A wire came down and landed in the puddle they were standing in. Then a man leaped off the bus to save them and he perished as well. Electricity is NOT something to mess with.

I feel confident in my abilities and never do something I don't feel comfortable doing. Even when I changed the gas valve on my boiler, I paid the HVAC guy come over and make sure I did it correctly. He was amazed, I guess. And I was pleased to have saved myself about $400. It cost me all of $50 for his hour of time whereas, had he done it himself, it would've cost me hours in labor! Those HVAC guys aren't cheap!

So, that's the plan...

Dinner? I'll plan that later...

Aww, shucks...(sheepishly cowering behind my computer screen...)
It's nothin'! I can never afford to have "real" people come and fix my stuff, so I read a book and just do it! I'll have to post more about this! hehe...this blogging is kind of fun!


The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
