Which Way?





I'm pretty much at a point right now that I'm just kind of feeling lost - which way to go? what's the correct decision? their way or mine? which is best? I'm feeling pretty confused and quite alone.

So, I promise - soon, I will stop simply posting 'photos of the day' and actually WRITE something. I seem to be in a rut right now - that's so unlike me - I can usually ramble on and on with no problem at all!

Honest, I'm not usually like this - I'm usually a very upbeat, funny, and fun person... I'm just having a 'moment'.

5 Best Nights Meme

This will be a tough one I think...
Skittles tagged me for this 5 best nights meme

Here are the rules: List the top 5 best nights of your life, with a little explanation about each. Then you must tag 4 other people.

These are in no particular order - just as they popped into my head
1. The night that my dad and his girlfriend brought Maggie Mae (the puppy) over. I am obsessed with and addicted to dogs, so this was a very special night. And, of course, any night that my dad visited was a highlight for me!

2. The night that my husband proposed to me. He took me to a horse racing track. I went to the restroom. After I came back, when I took a drink of my beer, there was something in the glass - it was the ring.

3. The first New Year's Eve that we spent with my cousin and his wife (one of my best friends of that time period). We had an absolute blast - just sat around playing Euchre all night, cursing at each other, and laughing so hard that our jaws hurt.

4. The night at the Grand Ol Opry when we saw Martina McBride. That was a true dream come true for me! Martina is my favorite and it was unbelievable to see her standing on that stage!

5. The night of the Bon Jovi concert in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We have seen them three times, but this was by far the best! We had an absolutely blast - I had no voice the next day from screaming and singing. Fun, beyond fun!!!

Ok - time to tag...

HOW AWESOME IS THAT ?!?!

WooooHooooo

I went walking right at dusk in hopes that the buck would be there. He was!!!


AND - he brought all his buddies! It must have been 'Bucks' Night Out' - cuz there were four bucks.


So, I'm standing alongside the road, taking pictures of the deer and concentrating on that. I turn, with the camera still to my eye, and see these fuzzy things trudging down the road towards me. Keep in mind, I had a camera in front of my eye and the sun was shining directly at me - I couldn't make out what these things were coming directly at me! I went ahead and snapped a quick photo and then the family decided to turn and head into the ditch - that was when I finally saw what they were :-)

I'm a Yellow Flower

You Are a Yellow Flower

A yellow flower tends to represent joy, friendship, and playfulness.
At times, you are childlike, as a buttercup is.
And at other times, you are fickle, like a dahlia.
And more than you wish, you tend to feel bittersweet, like a marigold.


Hmmmmm... bittersweet - yup, that pretty much sums it up!

Photos and Update




Yes, you will probably have to put up with my posting photos from my daily walks on a regular basis now. I just can't help myself - I am enjoying the walks and the Misty-alone-photo-time so much that I can't resist posting some of the photos. Besides, my partner-in-crime who convinced me to start a blog said that I SHOULD post my photos and stories ;-) So, I'll blame it on her (hehehe you love me LMQ, don't you?!?).

The deer photo is from yesterday's walk. It was so hot here yesterday, that I waited until dusk to go for my walk. There was the buck!!! And then a truck drove by!!! Sure - only about 5 cars/trucks go down this road a day and of course one of them has to go by when I'm trying to get a photo of my favorite animal (besides dogs, of course)!!! So, I kept walking, and hoped that on my way back, he would be closer. Well, on my way back, he was still there, but FURTHER away and joined with THREE does!! DARNIT!!! My zoom was not strong enough to get a good photo - but I HAD to post at least one, since it IS my favorite animal (besides dogs) and all!

The other two photos are from today's walk. LOVE that green dragonfly - I told him "thank you" about a hundred times for letting me get his photo.

Went to town today - turned in an application at a tire company (the owner told an in-law that I should apply - so like a good little girl, I did - whatever); changed my driver's license to the new state (hate the picture, but that's the way it's supposed to be, right?); got my vehicle 'safety inspected' (gotta do that here so you can transfer your plates to this state); and posted some business cards for virtual assistance on some bulletin boards (PLEASE GOD, let somebody call!). I also made a phone call about another job and sent out a cover letter/resume to yet another job - but, but, but - this isn't really what I want - it's just what's expected of me. My husband doesn't think the virtual assistance will work out. Last night, my daddy called (I MISS HIM SO MUCH) - talking to him always makes me feel better.

I just finished talking to Aunt on the instant messenger. She is all paranoid about me going on my daily walks - as she says "There are crazies everywhere on the roads just looking for a victim" - Riiiiiiight - as I said, about 5 cars/trucks go down this road a day and they are ALL neighbors! She also had to tell me to make sure that I don't post my address to anyone on the internet - cuz, "there's crazies out there" ya know! DUH - does she think I'm an absolute idiot? Oh well, I know it's because she loves me, but pppppplease - I'm not THAT dumb!

Well, I'm rambling again (that's what blogging is for, right?!?!) - Talk to y'all tomorrow!

Sunsets





I LOVE the sunsets here - and I LOVE taking photos of them!

My Misty-Time Photo Walk



I've started taking a daily walk. It's just 'my time' to get away on my own and armed with my digital camera. I've discovered that I truly love photography and would make a living with it, if I could. But for now, I will just settle on the excitement that I feel when I get that 'great capture' during my "Misty-Time Photo Walk"

Neglect

I've been getting so wrapped up in reading everyone else's blogs that I've neglected posting on my own blog!

I need to find more work - SOON! I have way too much time on my hands right now that I'm becoming totally lazy and finding too much time to worry about things and doubt myself. I have things that I want to make happen, but I doubt myself too much to get started and make those things happen.

For instance - I WISH, PRAY, and DREAM that I could find more work-at-home clients. However, on the internet, I'm just not sure which to trust and which are scams, so I end up not doing anything. I've called everywhere around here - went through all the lawyers, insurance offices, and veterinarian offices in the phone book - no one's hiring and no one is interested in virtual assistance. If I could get more work at home, it would just be ideal... I've already got my lawyer boss as a client, so I already have some VA work. I've got online college, the dogs, the farm, and an existing client - so being able to work from home full-time is the ultimate dream and goal. BUT - where do I start? Hell, I just don't know. I've found myself interested in the way some of you earn a little bit of money through blogging - but I don't know where to start there either, and I'm sure that I don't have enough traffic for that.

I started making flyers to hang at the banks, grocery stores, hardware store, etc, etc. I'm trying to decide whether I should include the virtual assistance work AND the customized photo items all on the same flyer - or should I keep them separate? Oh, I've got all sorts of ideas for more creative items that I could start making - but just like everything else - I'm not taking any action on them!

What the heck is wrong with me??? I'm in a rut! I've got ideas running through my head all day long, but I haven't taken any action - I just waste the day away.

If I don't start doing some of these things and proving that I can earn enough staying at home working as a VA and creating gift items - well then, I'll end up with a job at the 'college' and then it will be too late - Then everyone will be so thrilled with the benefits that we have to cover step-son" -that then trying to establish myself as a VA will be absolutely out of the question.

I know that I'm good at what I do... what is my problem???

Please forgive me for this rambling and nonsensical post - Must go have a pep-talk with myself now!

My First Tag :-) Well, not counting my dog

Stacey will now always be remembered by me as my friend who provided me with my first blogging tag! See Stacey, don't you feel super-duper-special now???
Here's the rules:

1) Each player must post these rules first.
2) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3) Tagged people post their eight things and these rules.
4) End your post by 'tagging' eight new people to play.
5) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog for these instructions.

EIGHT RANDOM FACTS/HABITS ABOUT ME

1. I have extremely low self-esteem. The intelligent part of me acknowledges this bad trait and the fact that it probably stems from a childhood of wondering why my parents didn't want me around. However, it seems that the intelligent part of me doesn't have an influence on the rest of me because I just can't seem to get rid of this trait and get a better image of myself.

2. I was raised by my paternal grandparents and aunt from the age of 2. By definition of what a mother is, my grandmother and aunt are the ones who deserve that title.

3. I am a MAJOR tomboy. I prefer to be fishing, shooting guns, camping, and playing sports. I also am not the least bit ashamed to call myself a redneck, at least not by MY definition of what a redneck is. I am a daddy's girl and grew up wanting to do anything my daddy could do so I could spend as much time with him as possible - that resulted in my being a tomboy. Before we moved, my dad passed down a sewing machine to me that was a family heirloom. That night, my dad's girlfriend asked "When did Misty learn to fish?" My dad replied "Well, gosh, as soon as she could hold a pole. Probably about 3 years old" Girlfriend asked "When did she learn to shoot a gun?" My dad replied "Oh Well, that's a different story. That wasn't until she was at least 5 years old" Dad's girlfriend then says "Oh yeah, and WHEN is Misty learning to sew?" Dad replied "Oh, so what! So, she's 31 years old! She's got the important stuff learned already!" hehehe

4. My favorite actor is Tom Hanks. I didn't choose him as my favorite because I think he's hot. I think he is one of the most talented, versatile actors ever. I am amazed when watching his movies, because he creates a character that you end up thinking of as a real person. I mean - come on - are you telling me that Forrest Gump isn't real??? He's gotta be! Anyone who can go from acting in "Big" and then do "Forrest Gump" and "Green Mile" then "Saving Private Ryan" and then "The Terminal" - he can 'be' any character and I am in awe of the man and his talent.

5. I am not a good cook. Ok, I can follow a recipe just fine - in fact, if I'm going to cook, I HAVE to have a recipe. I am NOT one of those people who can just 'guess' at how much of something to put in a dish and make it come out wonderfully! By the time I was ready to learn how to cook, my grandmother had developed Alzheimer's Disease - so, I missed out on those lessons (see #2 above).

6. I create custom Italian Photo Charm items. I just started making them as a hobby, but they became much more popular than I expected.

7. I LOVE Dharma & Greg. My sister-in-law insists that Dharma is a "ditz", but I insist that she is absolutely wonderful! I even had calves named Dharma, Greg, Petey, and Jane :-)

8. I love Miracle Whip and Ranch Dressing (no, not together). It's really a thing with me. I put one or the another on pretty much everything. When I get french fries at a restaurant, I ask them to bring me a side of ranch dressing. I've been known to eat Miracle Whip sandwiches - yup, that's just bread and Miracle Whip. I know - I've got issues!


Now, I'm supposed to tag 8 people, but I don't really have enough blogging friends yet - so, I'll just tag a few:

My Addictions (Long Post)

I got to pondering myself - yep, I was so darn bored that I had to analyze my own self ;-) Not all that very interesting, but I have noticed something... I tend to find something that I like, and I become addicted and/or obsessed with it. I'll prove my point with some examples -

Books - There is NO arguing that I am completely addicted to books. I think there is nothing more beautiful than an overfilled-to-the-brim bookshelf (or two or three or however many you can convince your husband that you need). I've discovered though, that if I find a book that I enjoy and it is by an author that I haven't read before - well, I get myself all obsessed, and I am immediately researching, eBaying, devouring every book by that author that I can find. I not only want to read each book by that author, but I convince myself that I NEED to OWN each book by that author now - because, after all, he/she is now one of my new favorite authors!

Computer stuff - OH MY - where do I begin?!?! ANYTHING computer=Mist is addicted! LOVE computers, LOVE computer software, LOVE the Internet as if it were a member of my family (sometimes, it's even better and more loving!). SOooooooo, when I took a FrontPage class - I became obsessed with websites and making them the most beautiful fun thing that I could possibly make. When LMQ finally convinced me to become a blogger - Well Hell - you see, I'm obsessed - I can't stop - I'm an addict - I have like 50 blogs bookmarked in my favorite places! OHHHHHH and Flickr - WELL, we can't even go there - there is no doubt that Flickr is just addictive as can possibly be! Not to mention eBay- not only is eBay addicting in itself - BUT you can find all the other things that are the objects of your addictions/obsessions on eBay - wooohooo.

Dogs - Anybody who knows me, knows that I am a dog addict (especially Border Collies). I am very passionate about dogs, and one of my dreams is to run a dog rescue. I have three Border Collies - AND I have dog calendars, dog key chains, dog figurines, dog stickers... Obsessed, I tell ya!

Photography and Writing - I LOVE photography and writing (two of my passions). I could do each or both all day long. I'm pretty obsessed.

Lists - OH, I'm a list maker... AND my lists have to be detailed and organized. I even make lists within my lists, little sub-lists, and I make lists of my lists. Oh yes, I have issues.

There are more... ummmmm, many more... but I'm starting to make myself a little concerned about myself ;-) Must stop pondering myself.

The PIG STORY

OK - so I started this blog because my best bud, my partner-in-crime, insisted that I need to start a blog to share my writing and my stories. I am also a member of a forum that was created by one of my favorite authors, and the very special friends that I have made there have insisted that my stories need to be shared with others. So... I started the blog, but I have just waited, because I mean, heck, you don't want to be just telling a story to cyberspace. NOW, I have a few people reading my blog... so, I've decided that I will go ahead and tell you my stories. My stories mainly come from farming life. I grew up working for my great uncle on his produce farm, but you don't get many lively adventures from plants. THEN, I married a livestock farmer - well, first we were a dairy farm, then we became a sheep, beef cattle, and crops farm, and now we are strictly beef farmers. Let me tell ya, when you throw animals in the mix - it makes for some pretty exciting adventures, especially when I'm involved, it seems. All of the stories I will tell are at my own expense... What I mean is, y'all will be laughing your as*es off at me... but, that's ok - I'm used to it by now, and it's worth it!

Now - for the pig story... oh my... my husband thinks this is the greatest, most funniest, most hilarious story ever... that would be because... 1. it wasn't him and 2. he wasn't there to suffer my fury!

We had just started to 'manage' my in-laws farm... This means that, basically, we were still doing ALL that work that we had already been doing, but now we were so lucky as to also be in charge of all the finances. Oh yes, we got to pay all the bills... basically, that's what it meant. Anyway... We were having some huge trouble with finances, so my husband took a job as basically a hired-hand on our neighbors' farm, which was still a dairy farm. So, my husband would go there and help milk each morning, come home and work on our farm, and go back late afternoon/evening to the neighbors' dairy farm to help milk in the evening. This is where I came in. I would come home from work in the late afternoon/evening and take care of those chores. By this time, we were sheep farmers and were in the middle of lambing season. We had over a dozen lambs that were orphans and needed bottle fed - So, that was my first chore... bottle feeding over a dozen hungry little lambs, that are really cute at first until you are mauled and raped by them when they are killing each other for a bottle. We also had pigs. We had about 7 pigs, and we sent 6 of those pigs to market. That left one pig. As you will tell by the story (if you are patient enough to keep reading), that left one VERY lonely and desperate pig!!!

So, I came home from work, filled the bottles for the lambs, put them in a bucket and trudged my way to the barn. I was inside feeding the lambs, and I hear this "CRASH BANG CRASH" then... silence... I just sat there holding a bottle in mid-air wondering what I had just heard. Then I had this thought... "Oh NO!!!" I thought "PLEASE don't tell me the pig got out!! PLEASE don't tell me that's just what happened!" So, I finished feeding the lambs, and I went out to see what the commotion was all about. YEP, the one lonely, desperate pig had, in fact, charged the gate and broke out of the pen that he was in. He was now running happily around our cement lot. I stood there wondering to myself "What the he*l am I supposed to do now??" So I got this great plan.

He (the pig) went down an alleyway, near our manure pit. So, I hid behind the wall, and waited for him to come close to his pen. When he came close, I jumped out from behind the wall (and behind the pig) yelling and waving my arms in the air. It WORKED! The pig went running back into his pen. Yay!!! I did good. Then I realized "Well crap!!! Now, how am I gonna keep him in there?" Duh Mist, you didn't figure out your plan first! I needed a gate - yep, that's what I needed. So, I wandered around the lot until I found this big ol' heavy freakin gate that I had no business trying to move by myself. But, by golly, I moved it by myself! Only to find that by the time I got it over to the pen, the pig had wandered himself back out and was now merrily running around the lot again! Da*n it!!! So, I used the first part of the plan again (hid behind the wall, etc, etc, ran out waving arms and yelling, blah blah) it worked again!

Pig is now in the pen, and I've now got a big ol' gate to keep him in there! I am SO awesome! yeah... sure Misty... keep telling yourself that! So, I prop the big ol heavy gate up and realize that I need something to fasten the gate to the walls so the pig can't knock it down and get out again. Ok, I can do this... baler twine!!! Yay! baler twine will definitely work! So, I go into the adjoining barn and grab myself a big ol bucket worth of baler twine. I wearily come out and check, and hooooorah... the pig is still in there! Yes, I am good. Suuuuure, I am.

So, now, I must tie this gate to whatever posts I can possibly find so this darn pig doesn't get out again. Ok, I can do this. I've got this spiderweb of baler twine running from this post to that post and back out here around those other posts. OK, almost done. So, I'm kneeling down, carefully tying some baler twine around another post when I hear this sound... It's the pig... He's at the far end of the pen, and he's making this grunting, snorting sound and pawing the ground AND he's giving me the eye - yep, he was looking right into my eyes like - say your prayers girlie! THEN he did it... he charged... he slammed himself into the gate, and at that moment I realized that my careful baler twine tying didn't mean a da*m!!! I flew backwards onto the cement... the gate crashed down on top of me... and the pig... well, that da*m pig, HE ran ontop the whole length of me! From the TOES to my HEAD... yup, he just ran the whole length of me while I was lying there helpless and cursing!

By the time I got myself up - trust me... it took awhile, I went in and phoned the neighbors' farm... I knew that they don't answer the phone, but they listen to the messages. I promptly (and quite tiredly) informed them that if I did not get some help immediately, we were going to have pig on a spit for dinner!!! Well, of course, no one bothered to listen to the message... oh no, of course they didn't.

I did the whole waving the arms and yelling thing again. Got the pig back in again and started tying the gate to the walls AGAIN. This time, whenever the pig even acted like he might even be considering pummeling me again, I would stand up and start screaming and cursing at him to scare him back to the other end of the pen. After a VERY LONG time, I finally got the gate tied up and was sufficiently satisfied that the pig would not get out. I then went in the house for a well deserved rest.

When my husband came home from milking, he was expecting a hay customer to be coming for some hay that night. I figured he could probably use some help, so I limped my poor aching body outside to see if I could be of assistance. He looked at me immediately all concerned and said "What's Wrong? Honey, did you get hurt?" I replied "I've been beat up by a pig!" "What???" he asked. So, I told him the story... well, at least I tried to tell him the story, but towards the end, he was doubled over laughing so hard that I thought he was going to pass out. I literally had bruises - perfect pig hoof shaped bruises - all over the length of me... yep, little purple and blue pig-hoof-shaped bruises from my toes to my head!!!

Oh gosh - you would have thought this was the greatest story in the state. My husband was telling everyone. If I started to tell the story myself, he would interfere and say "No, oh no, let me tell it" Oh Yeah Dear, like you were actually there!

On a side note - when it was finally time for this pig to go to market, my husband informed me that it took him a full 20 minutes to cut ALL the baler twine off the gate so that he could get the pig loaded in the truck! SEE - I DID do a good job after all... yeah right, tell my aching body that now hates pigs that!

So, that's the pig story - if you were patient enough (or bored enough) to read the whole story, I thank you!

Technology Addict JAIL!!!

Ok... I am a self-proclaimed technology addict. I LOVE my gadgets and spend much time scheming about what my next gadget should be and how I can be convincing enough about why I absolutely NEED it.

Being a virtual assistant also requires that I have a fully equipped office with all the gadgets and gizmos, bells and whistles.

WELL - I packed up my office, my work gadgets, and my personal gadgets... and arrived at what I now call home. My dad rode with me on the 750 mile trip... We threw his clothes and tools in the SUV, amongst my fax machine, digital camera, mp3 player, camcorder, laptop backpack (full of all sorts of laptop goodies), and a crate containing my Molly-Collie and my Puppy-doodles (both female border collies)... Ya see, I wouldn't allow my most prized possessions to be thrown into a livestock trailer to be moved here - how could I possibly expect my husband to pay these items the proper care and respect that they deserve??? NO WAY - they went in the SUV with me... that way, I could keep an eye on them.

So... now, here I am... with all my gadgets... and a house that is not only the size of a box, but also was built wayyyyyy back when... We have ONE, count em', ONE electrical outlet in each room! YES, that includes the kitchen (one outlet), the bedroom (one outlet), the bathroom (I'll repeat myself-one outlet)... AND THE OFFICE!!! I've got extension cords running like spider webs across my office floor. Yes, I have surge protector power strips, but just one isn't enough for all of my goodies. I started to list all the gadgets that I want plugged in, but I just deleted it all, because it really pointed out the cold hard fact that "Hello, my name is Misty Dawn, and I'm a technology addict."

If I had only known

We've spent the past few days trying to make our kitchen a kitchen. When we moved in here, all that occupied the kitchen was an old sink inside a metal cupboard. Yup - that's it! No cupboards, no shelves, no nothing! So - we had some old cupboards that my husband used to have hanging in his shop in Ohio. We decided that we would put them in temporarily, so that we would have a 'temporary kitchen' until we decided if we are going to add on or what. We've been working slowly - my husband has experienced chigger bites on 75 percent of his body, poison ivy all over his stomach, and the flu... so, he hasn't felt up to working too much. Yesterday, he was feeling good and we got almost all the cupboards put in and hung!!! It's awesome! Last night, he says to me "I'm on a roll now! When I make A LOT of progress, that gets me fired up to keep working!" GEESH - If I would have known that - I would have stayed up ALL night working to accomplish that LOT of progress and get my husband motivated!

The Stove!



Per the request of LMQ... I had to post photos of the stove!

The way it is

Over the weekend, we went with my husband's cousin and girlfriend to go fishing and camping overnight. We had a lot of fun. At 3:30 in the morning, they were in their tent sleeping and husband, step-son and I were very uncomfortably trying to sleep in our tent. All of a sudden, we hear this noise outside the tents. This mad/sick/psychotic/screeching/hissing type noise. I heard cousin's girlfriend say "What the f*** is that???" At the same time, I was looking at my husband saying "What the f*** is that???" Cousin sees something on the ground beyond his tent and says "It's a big ol' bobcat!!" At that time, cousin's dog starts barking and growling. Step-son says "Dad, open the screen of the tent so I can stick my head out and look!" Just as I was saying "NO, you are NOT sticking your head out there" (although lately I've felt like feeding him to a wild animal), we hear someone whisper "Shut up Wiggles" (Wiggles is the dog). Then we hear laughing! It's was Cousin's brother and buddy trying to freak us out. I still can't believe they trudged clear through the creek all the way to where we had set up camp to freak us out at 3:30 in the morning - they were, obviously, drunk!

Last night, my overprotective aunt (she and my grandparents raised me), was flipping out on me over the Instant Messenger. Wanting to know if I had put any thought into what we would have done if it had rained and the 'river' rose. I calmly explained to her that we were by a creek that half the time we had to push the boat through because it was so shallow and that there weren't any forecasts of rain anywhere near us. She continued with her overprotective fantasies about flash-floods. I finally just said "I'm sorry that I risked my life like that" and let it go! Sometimes you just have to accept people for how they are, I guess, and act appropriately.

I still haven't heard anything on a job yet! I've determined that I need to start heavily marketing myself to try to find a couple more virtual assistant clients. I am the virtual assistant for the lawyer that I worked for in Ohio, but I need a couple more clients in order to make virtual assistance my main line of work. So, I'll be pouring through the books and the websites to determine my best marketing strategies and going at it... Wish me luck!

Doin a Happy Dance

I got a stove!!! I finally got a stove! WoooooHooooo - no more trying to cook for three (which includes one extremely picky and unappreciative step-son) in an electric skillet! Got a stove! Doing a dance! Ok, so the stove is sitting on my front porch right now - BUT It IS there - I can see it! Husband had to go do some things for his mommy, so he will bring my stove inside and plug the beautiful thing in after he gets back. Gosh, I never thought I would be so excited to get an appliance!

On another note - my knees are now swollen and black N blue. Yes, I played volleyball - I played the normal type of volleyball that I am used to playing, which means that I sacrificed my body to get that ball over the net. When you are playing with a bunch of people who hardly every play, that requires you to sacrifice your body A LOT! Therefore, my right knee is twice the size it should be and it is screaming at me frequently - the left knee looks all purty with its pretty purple color, but it doesn't hurt as bad as the right. Is it possible that I am getting old??? Nah - can't be!
