I have gone far too many days and not written you guys, Life is a changing around the Hilliard household. I am going to explain this without a lot of detail .... I promise to write a full on blog about this extreme time of my life but this is just going to be a catch up thingy .... 3 years and some change ago I was having a party at my house for a girlfriend of mine that had just arrived from arkansas. We ran out of cigarettes (I dont have that nasty habit anymore) and I needed a 2-liter. I didnt want to go but my daughter Heather didnt want to drive alone ...ended up Heather driving. I in the passenger seat and my son Taylor in the back seat behind me. We went to cross the interection to the store and was struck by a drunk driver who tried to drive off. He had just left work where he ask to have the night off so he could sleep enough (He worked thirds) to attend his 1st DUI hearing the next morning. Well real quick Heather got banged up with a sprained ankle and Taylor had his arm tore up really good. I was in a coma for 11 days lost a spleen and spent the next year in and out of the hospital 3 operations and a staff infection later I begain the healing process. Well last week we finally signed the papers on our settlement. My kids are well took care of ...Heather is buying a house and Taylor's college is done .... Me and Robert got enough to pay off our bills and do some much needed repairs on this house and maybe a vacation ...I havent had one in 14 years ...the last 3 years I have had no cell phone and no car ...so these things are about to be fixed (thank you lord) So all this week has been about getting all our ducks in a row and paying people off while dancing in front of them ...I have given many an office worker a good laugh but this is a big deal for us .... many people go for the frame and fortune and all I have ever dreamed of is less bills and a working fridge .... oh I forgot to tell you the 18th of this month our fridge died quitely in the middle of the day. So now we are using the little dorm fridge that was in Roberts shop. But the blessing now is that the labor day sales are about to happen and we are going to blow electronic express off the map.....lol but well thats all its just been really busy and I have been dedicated to my working out. I think I might be building a muscle... either that or I strained something and its just swollen... but I would like to think either way that its possitive rather than negative.

Well it was fam off to the races .... then My daughter Heather came over for a haircut via momma. Lord was she in a funky mood. Then .... we went to the garage and there was the largest hornet I have ever seen in my entire 43 years
HERE IT IS!
My weapon of choice!
Here it is kissing its butt goodbye.
Non-curled it was a little over a inch long.
That is so gross!
I know that I will catch
grief for killing it but neighbors
it was this thing or me and I picked
No applause just throw money!

But I hung in there and I finished the Bible reading poster for my girls I teach on weds. night at our church. So instead of doing 3 projects a day I am going to lower my goal to one a day and if I finish more than one ...well you can bet that the world is coming to an end. I watched two hours of daytime T.V. today something I never ever do but it was because I was chained to coffee table where I set up shop to work on this poster.... No wonder women are so messed up ... Their shows are mindset toward those women who spend 3 hours in a tanning bed and have their nails done every other day, You know the ones that dont spank their kids and have their kids in 12 afterschool activities. They give women instructions on how to find and trap a man. How to bleed that said man to death after the catch.

Well today we got up at 7 church at 8:30 Got all of Taylors school supplies read the title folks I am not joking I wait always til I only have like less that 24 hours to get it done ..then something in me kicks into high gear and with the help of the Lord almighty ...I prevail somehow. Being in that crunch gives me a high and when I come out of smelling like a rose, well to me that is the ultimate high! I got that high at about 10:38 this morning at Wally- World.
Fire ...as we travel this werid life of mine you will uncover that I am a massive fire bug Pyro nutcase and why my house hasnt burned to the ground a couple of time is just the good graces of the Lord. Now I have to leave you great folk and go call my daighter who I totally told her I was going to her house and cut her hair and well .... maybe tommorrow ..Yeah tommorrow hopefully it will always be there ...night folks

O.k. guys I came across this page that was titled
It blew me away because out of the Six I am total guilty of 5 of these.
This scared me!
1.Focusing on Your Inner Monologue Instead of the Dialogue in Front of You
2.Double-tasking While You Chat
3.Cutting People off Mid-Sentence
4.Fishing for Compliments
5.Throwing off Compliments with Self-Effacing Remarks
6.Seeking Attention by Complaining About Your Life
Number 4 is the only one that I dont do ...which I dont understand that
one if you have number 5 .... I am always putting myself down all the time
I couldnt imagine fishing for someone to say something nice to me because
then I would have to blow whatever they said nice about me out of the water .
I know that my real mother giving me up to someone else is the reason I have
incorporated these habits and thats great that you spent an hour telling me I
need to quit these habits ...is there a list anywhere of "how" You quit doing
these things to yourself when they are old deep rooted habits...what is the
blueprint on undoing these self destroying habits?

*Be neat and clean this doesnt cost you any money just a little effort
and organization skills.
*Dont put out dirty or stain clothes dont pile all you clothes on a tarp,
even if you cant hang them sort them and fold them into neat piles.
*Price items ...it saves time ... Your time!
*NO UNDER GARMENTS: dirty or clean new or used this is just gross and
makes me get in my car and leave because you are nasty! (things that make
you go ewwww!)
*Porn or adult items (Yes I have come across this) lots of people hit these
yardsales with there kids. Be kid friendly... its common sence people, but
if you didnt know, you do now.
*Over priced items: Come on people it is a yard sale not a consignment shop
and I dont care how much you gave for it. I really dont want to pay much
as you did. This is why I am here at 7:02 in the morning .... it is used, sell it as such!
*Dont walk around hounding me to buy something like some sales person in a
department store. I have left a many of a sale because of this.
*Have more than one table of stuff or donate it to Goodwill. There is nothing
worse than driving several miles and there is not even anything to look at!!!
*People lets talk about signs.
First off STOP USING the thin paper like "POSTER BOARDS" They get a little moisture on them that early in the morning and they fold up and then we cant read where you are located ... You are not getting customers and are not making any money. Take the extra few dollars and buy the thick poster boards or use a piece of plywood.
*What to write on these signs.
*Write everything the same size because if when I pass it all I can read is Yard sale well some people just arent willing to get lost. Write yard sale or garage sale or patio sale ... whatever and then write what day(s) and then the street name.
*Dont list the items for sale it just junks up the sign use good handwriting if you dont have it ask someone else to write the sign.
*Also have someone hold the sign up and walk about 20 feet back and make sure that it is readable to someone far away. You might even want to drive by it at a slow speed just to see if it is readable.
*Once that sign has been attached. then at every turn or even if its a long drive ...post arrows with the same color that was on the main sign ...it comforts me the yard saler that I have not gotten lost and I am headed in the right direction .
*On the main road sign fly a few Balloon this is a sign to the customer "congrats you have arrived" Yeah its goofy but either you want to make a couple hundred buck by the end of the day or you dont.
And Please Please Please dont be lazy and not remove your Yard sale sign.. I am a firm believer that these people should be publicly hung but others have told me that that kind of thinking is a little extreme.... Yet I dont think so. I think there should be a fine at least for these people.
Yard Sale Customer:
Do not think that we have forgotten about you!
* Respect the seller and being in their yard.
* Put your cigarettes out before you even touch a toe on their driveway.
* Dont block driveways , not the yard sellers or their neighbors
* Dont walk in the Yard Salers neighbors Yard.
* Haggling is o.k. but when the owner say No ..... No means No here too.
* Dont try out any items unless you have the premission of the owner.
