Without A Migraine…Almost

I don’t have Migraines every day, but I do get them a lot and anything out of the ordinary can trigger them.  Like the Power Outtage that started a few hours ago and it’s getting cold.  C. offered to come get me but I am a big girl and can handle this. I have blankets and a soft, plush, long one piece if it gets to cold.  Plus, the Imatrex should knock me out and hopefully it will be back on in a few hours. 

Other then that,  next week we are going to study Philemon in Bible Study and I am going to lead. 

Did some sorting of paperwork today; not much, but I can tell the difference.

Plus, my new toaster arrived. Now, I just have to get bread, bagels and jam or cream cheese. The toaster isn’t purple only because I can’t afford it yet. They charge double the regular toaster just for the color.

My Day, Today

Last night, my Karaoke Machine arrived! It’s a bit on the small side but the sound quality is good. The disk that came with it sucks, so I’ve ordered one with better songs.

Today, C. and I went to Walmart and I have an eye appointment on Monday. My glasses are coming apart and I think my vision might be getting worse. While at Walmart, I bought a Coffee Pod Holder

Then we went gambling and I won over $100. I only gambled around $35 and left with $140 so I totally made a profit.

All in all, it’s been a pretty good day.

Reminder- If you are a business I have no interest in, privately selling something or do not have a semi-normal profile photo; I Will Block You From Following Me. until you get the hint.

Psychology & Weather Today

This morning was fun. I got to take a Psychology Test via Zoom. I have been volunteering for a lot of research to help find medications and ways to cure my metabolic disease.

Then, I got a Migraine which I thought was from test nerves, but could be from anything.

The wind is crazy tonight and will be until around 4 in the morning.

I didn’t sleep well last night so it is going to be an early one, tonight.

Normalcy For Me

It is a beautiful day, today and I feel back to semi-normal. I think a lot of my headaches as of late could be attributed to getting rid of my car. While I have been focusing on buying a few fun items, as well as necessities..like food, and having it all delivered. My brain is still having a hard time adjusting. It didn’t help that the stupid delivery girl couldn’t find my house today and wanted me to walk to the clubhouse before finally asking the manager how to get here.

Anyway, since we have finished with Daniel, I am back to working on my Boundaries Workbook, which keeps me on track and in the right frame of mind.

In other news, I took up smoking again.

HA! Don’t worry, they are the only things I’ll smoke….Dad died of Emphysema so .. I do remember why I quit smoking these, though. Why the hell are they made with Beef Gelatin? I won’t even get into what Gelatin is made of. But hey, I’ve got them now and sometimes it’s okay to eat crap.

Movie Review, Etc..

One reason, I skip posting on Sundays is to get more to post about..not that, that really works but….

Yesterday, I watched the movie ‘Hacked’. It is an Indian or Hindi movie in English. The reviews don’t match the movie, at all. Basically, a high tech company receives a new computer system and as two of the employees..one being the manager…test it out, the building is broken into. The people who broke in; want access to the new system, and all hell breaks lose. The system has the capability to hack into every system in the city and it also creates a seal of the rooms where it is located, closing the employees and bad people, together. The movie does show bad and good working together, but a lot of it made no sense. Especially, the ending. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you are extremely bored and out of things to watch; but I can’t speak to badly since I got it at a Dollar Store.

Hadn’t had a Migraine for four days until last night and today. Maybe, the VICI Patches are actually helping the frequency? Knock on wood.

*Reminder- If you are a business I have no interest in, someone privately selling something or do not have a semi-normal profile photo; I Will Block You From Following Me. until you get the hint.

It’s to bad WordPress doesn’t have a way to do that once, so they just stay blocked. And it’s also to bad I have to keep posting these reminders.

Life Adjustments

I don’t need to tell you when it’s a quiet day because that’s most every day.

Finished Daniel in Bible Study but are going to review a bit next week since it coveted a lot.

It was weird washing my hair, as very little shampoo is needed and the whole wash and dry process has been cut down by about a half hour.

Even though I probably wouldn’t..there are times I think, it would be a nice day for a ride..then I remember I don’t have a car. This is an adjustment.

B. was going to put the Washer & Dryer in the house, tomorrow..but, he has Cancer and now a Hernia; so I told him not to worry about it, and called my Handyman who will be here, next week.

It was nice and chilly this morning, then got really windy in the afternoon. Sometimes, staying inside isn’t so bad.

Lots Of Reading

It’s been a quiet day with lots of reading. I’ve finished reading Daniel, so I can lead the study tomorrow; plus, am in the process of reading Ann Rule..You Belong To Me;  and like, 5 other stories.

I joined the Book Exchange-Secret Santa on Reddit, and it was a bit difficult, again. The girl I got likes Fantasy Fiction and books with LGBT characters and Crystals..none of which I know anything about. Luckily, she likes to go to the Library, so I got creative. I got her:

$15.00 Gift Card to Barnes &Noble
Fantasy Fiction book that sounded interesting.
A Tote Bag with a Library theme
And a Library themed Facemask.

She is in California, so I am sure they still have to wear them.

Thanks for the comments/compliments on my haircut.  It’s fun and bouncy.  I am waiting to color it until it gets warmer, here.

Quick Update

I woke up around 5:30 so I am tired now. But, I thought I would show you the reason for my ride, the other day.

This was Before
And these are After

With the car gone and new goals, I am spoiling myself, a bit.

All debts are paid so I got a Fingerhut card so I can purchase things with low, monthly payments in order to keep some sort of credit history and up my score.

My first purchase was a Karaoke Machine which I have been totally wanting for something else to do around here.

Wild & Scary Uber Ride

I am sure most of you have heard of Mr.Toad’s Wild Ride so let me tell you about mine.

I was sitting on the bench at the park entrance during the wind, trying to set up an Uber ride. I guess I put the wrong destination in because I received notice that a driver was coming to take me to City Center. I didn’t even know where or what City Center is and quickly texted the driver the name of my actual destination. When the driver came, I even told him the correct destination. He started driving and said “No English”. Any time I said anything, he said “No English” and after getting on and off the freeway, I was freaking out. I’m like “Just let me off at the next restaurant.” But, he totally ignored me and completed the ride. I was dropped off at an auto parts store and had to get another Uber to pick me up and take me to my actual destination.

Of course I reported this to Uber, but, their Customer Service is only online.

I don’t know if I will get a refund for that ride, but, I should. It was scary watching him go the wrong way from where I really needed to go and ignoring me when I wanted out. I almost felt like I was being abducted.

Uber did say they “Took care of it” …so the driver may have been let go?” As the 2nd driver said, “They should have Google Translate.” He thinks the guy knew English and just took me for a ride.
