Thank You

Thank you all for your votes! They are very much appreciated. I dont know the outcome yet but it was just nice to be nominated! ( Thank you again Pendullum)

Wow, it is cold outside. And when I say cold I mean bone chilling cold. Jack Frost is out with a vengence. But still, when I am sleeping I have covers on/covers off. Cant decide if I am hot or cold. I go to bed with socks on but always take them off in the night. I guess this is hormones...and we all know how to make a hormone....just dont pay her! lol

I am off today and I dont think I am going to leave the house. I shopped so much in the past few days I wore myself out. I am looking for my medal to come in the mail anyday now for being such a champion shopper!

You all know I live in a small town. Everybody knows everybody in this town, and thats a good thing unless you are trying to get away with something. ;)) (Which I have been known to do from time to time) Anyway, I have a debit card, which comes right out of your checkbook, its very handy to use the card instead of writing a check everywhere you go. One day my neighbor and I decided to go shopping in St Clairsville, Ohio. They have a nice big Mall down there. We shopped all day, we had to make a couple trips to the car during the day to put our purchases in the trunk. The day after we were shopping my bank called me. They said ' Catch, is your debit card missing?' I said 'No, why?' They said 'well all these charges were coming in on your card at once and we were concerned that maybe you had lost it or it was stolen.' I laughed so hard and thanked them for checking on me. I said ' No, I have just been shopping!'. Thats small town and its comforting to know they look out for your welfare.

When I look out my front window at various times of the day I see people walking up and down the street, but not in this cold! Barely anyone is out! My dog goes out and does her business and high tails it right back inside. And her little paws are froze! I bought a dogpen the other day, because when we are gone she goes from window to window, knocking over anything in her way. So I pen her up when we leave now. I bought this real nice comfy looking pillow that fits inside the pen. She loves it! I have been putting her in there at night and the first night she cried a little bit but now she goes in and goes right to sleep. At least when we go somewhere I know she is not knocking my plants over!

I hope you are all staying warm. Its freezing, but you know what? I wouldnt want to live anywhere else. Have a great Tuesday!!!!

Pretty cold here too Catch, but lovely and sunny. You have to wrap up warm and go for a walk.

Nice of your bank to check with you about all the purchases on your card.

I've had credit card companies (fuel cards, actually) send me mail saying they'd noticed I hadn't been using my card enough, and offering me a ten dollar credit if I'd just go out and charge some gas on their card right away. LOL!

Catch I am the same at night, I wear socks but then have to take them off because my feet dont feel right in bed with socks on. LOL
Thats pretty decent of your bank to contact you about the purchases.

thats awesome how the bank called you!

as for the cold, lets not talk about it. another foot of snow fell last night. i have to shovel

Mimi said...

It is really cold out. Too cold for snow. I feel for your poor pup. I tried putting old baby socks on my dogs feet to help with the so freezing it is painful coldness on their paws. But it just confuses them and they stand there. LOL!

Keep warm!

I have not gone out except to get the mail. The mailman brought the mail to my front door yesterday. What to do with the dog when your gone is what we had with my sons dog or our dog [don't know yet]. We put him in a cloth house with a cushion and a toy. He seemed content but when he heard the garage door go up he was at the door. He had pushed right through the door on the carrier ripping it. Next time we put him in the bathroom with the toilet lid down and that seemed to work.

Ha, you're too funny. Sometimes when I open my bank statement online, I close my eyes and then let it surprise me. I HATE viewing my bank statement because sometimes I know I go overboard. But that's great that they called you to see if it was you!

This cold is actually getting to me Catch! My friend's hot water and heat just went out- for the third time, so she's staying with me and at night, I'm like you, I don't know whether I'm too hot because of my monster oil burner or too cold because I'm trying to get the hell outa' my covers! So it's not hormones hopefully. It's this intense cold!

I have to say, it beats the 105 degree weather that we sometimes have to endure. I'll take the cold anyday really. Just give me a warm comforter and some hot cocoa....with Bailey's of course! ;)

Keep warm! I hope you're doing great!

You ARE a great commenter. I think that is funny about your bank. At least you know if it IS stolen, they'll have your back. AND give you a warning when you need to lay off the shopping. Hee hee.

Dr.John said...

Even shopping won't get us out in this cold. we bought a pen for my son's dog so that when they visit we could leave it home. It has a nice pillow. When we got back from eating the dog met us at the door.

Christine said...

that is a good one.......shoot I would get a call everyday. Well of course no one would call, it is regular use here. I gave a card to Ana. BIG MISTAKE.

So anyone one morning early about 7am I get a call, the lady says, "are you in a computer store buying 4,000. worth of computer equipment?" I said no, I am in bed, talking on this phone......she said, well SOMEONE is trying to buy computer equipemtn at so and so store, on your account. I told her, well don't let em.....and close out that account please........which she did. Man that was strange, my card was in my wallet.......I guess they just stole a bank of card numbers and were using a few of them, and mine came up for use.......If they hadn't of called, WHAT a mess. huh

Ol' Lady said...

Your lucky that your bank would do that.
Sure sounds like you had fun shoppin :)

Jackie said...

Well, we can see what you are doing with all that money you are saving by not smoking! lol
Enjoy! No one ever died of 'shoppers lungs'.
