can’t think of a title today

The mail lady came to the door today to have me sign for a certified letter from the IRS. We owe them $466 and they intend to seize our State Tax Refund or our right to property if that doesn’t pay them off. Can I say how scared I am? OOOOOHHHHH… unemployed for 3 yrs and that’s all they can threaten me with? shit. I guess we’ll keep our assets in cash under the mattress. what a joke. There is no cash and there are no assets. We haven’t seen a refund in years either. Wonder if they will give me a job so I can pay them? I should ask.

I started a little quilt for my new grandson today. It’s Winnie the Pooh. I hope the kids don’t decide it’s politically incorrect or something. I think it’s sweet. it’s one of those prepatterned ones that you simply hand stitch. I don’t think I wrote about V’s baby being a boy. All babies excite me. I’d give my teeth :0) to be able to be close to the grands. Little Isaac is standing on his own and so close to walking. I wonder what V will name her son. naming was always my favorite part of having a baby!

Nothing really interesting going on. I’m trying to stay positive. We give new meaning to the term raggedy. lol But really, you know that knot you get that’s almost in your throat when you want to cry? It has settled and won’t budge. It’s time to find a way to pay for emmissions and tags and the list grows daily –


About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in Kenya, married to the son of a preacher, with 4 spoiled dogs and and an add on (a rescued kitten). Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and depression and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.
