We’ve all heard the saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” but what if you’re a woman? I know…I know… it’s just language..blah..blah…
But, here is a true example:
Cin has been wanting a new Loveseat to replace the one in her 5th Wheel…. She has had it since 2017…. Last week, one of my neighbors had one to get rid of…. When you want to get rid of furniture, you put it in front of the house for either the neighbors, trash man or junk guy to take…but when she put her hand down the side to see if the cushions would come off, her fingers got into a nest of bugs. Cin is not a squeamish person so for her to freak out, it was bad. Anyway, that was last week, I think. Yesterday, as I was walking home from the mailboxes, I passed this Loveseat
and took the picture. I forgot to tell her about it til today. But, needless to say, it’s still there, clean…well, the owner said stained. They are getting rid of it because it is old…. and really comfortable. So Cin and B are going to pick it up, tomorrow. We just have to pray it will fit in the 5th Wheel…. Which, Cin lives in, by the way.
So, while this is more of Cin’s story, I did my good deed by finding it for her.
While not enough to cause a dent, at least it’s here. It’s enough to get my windows and parts of the ground wet. Plus, I saw lightening in the distance, too.
Nothing really exciting, today. Went for my walk to the mailbox since it was a bit cooler than usual. Plus, checked on my neighbor since a police car was in front of her house, yesterday….Turns out, her neighbors fight a lot so they were there for that. Not her house, after all.
Visited with TR who I haven’t seen in a while…Cleaned the back room, caught up with phone calls, did some reading and tv…the usual..
Had Linner (Lunch/Dinner) with the neighbors on Saturday, which was interesting. Let’s call them Ame and Ken.. Anyway, they seem like nice people but..Ame admitted she has some mental issues and Ken is frying his brain with drugs. They probably both are. They live with his father, Jer, who has been gone for a month and returned, yesterday. Anyway, Linner was okay and Ame even took me to Pinkbox Donuts after, for dessert. The donuts are good and very, unique. What was weird about visiting, though is..they bought a lot of J’s furniture from her yard sale. So, I remembered the sofa I sat on, and the tables I ate at. Weird in a different environment.
Today, Cin took me to the bank before driving around, a bit. It is cool to see the housing options around here, despite the fact, I can’t really look, yet.
I don’t know how many of you have moved recently, but, it’s amazing the stuff we forget we had when we pack things up drawer by drawer. Plus, when you think you are done with an area, there’s more you forgot. I have a full bag for Goodwill and am ready to start another one. This is also proof of my belief of ‘Out With The Old, In With The New’. I am Following one Blogger that is dealing with her housekeeping issue by emptying her entire house. I am not envious, there.
This also makes me think;. You know those questions people ask like, ‘If you lose everything but can take 3 things with you, what would they be?’. Well, now my answer would be me, my cats and I guess whatever the closest things are. Hopefully, they would be some packed boxes. …
No, I am Not moving yet, but, it never hurts to prepare!
One gentleman in Florida said he will miss his coin collection. While life is not about material possessions; it is interesting what material possessions are important.
Speaking of things, look what came today from my Secret Santa!
They are tin signs. Aren’t they cool? The one on the left says, ‘Relax at Camp Crystal Lake’. and the one on the right could probably be Jason’s cat, if he had one.
I have a suspicion something more is on the way, as well…so, will keep you, updated.
Cin took me out to a few stores. Plus, I felt good about helping a Homeless Man. He was Shakey and had a hard time walking to the car but I watched him open the bag and immediately drink the water, I’d included. I bought lemon, sparkling water just to put in the Homeless bags.
I’m sure by now, most of you heard about what happened in Florida. Can you imagine? Truthfully, I have a weird feeling it is Terrorist related especially when most everyone there was Jewish. Plus, even the Mayor said, the Inspector had been there the day before and other buildings older than that, haven’t collapsed. My heart and prayers go out to all affected.
Today was bad. I had a Sinus Headache from Hell and slept most of the day. Ordered some Zyrtec online which should be delivered any time now. I sure hope so. I Need to get to the store, tomorrow!
I used to get Sinus Infections all the time, but, it’s rare I get them, now. Actually, it’s pretty rare I get sick much at all now… except Migraines, which isn’t really considered sick… since I don’t experience a lot of stress, anymore. Learning about and applying Boundaries has been amazing for me!
I am considering trying Botox or something again for my Migraines. I think I only tried that once or twice and that was a long time ago, yet, it’s almost a lost cause as, I feel as if I have tried almost everything and there is no cure. I would think since the stress is better; the frequency would be too, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I get about 14 per month. A really good month is single digits!
We got more rain today with thunder, which was nice. Still probably not enough to help our drought, but it was pleasant to watch come down.
Today was Matching for Arbitrary Day on Reddit Gifts Secret Santa Exchanges. Arbitrary Day is like the regular Secret Santa, but mid-year. I am really excited at who I got this time, as, she was super easy to buy for! She is 19, studying to become a teacher, likes Hello Kitty and has 5 cats. Plus, she and her boyfriend are going to be getting married and moving, soon. I found some really cool stuff from Hot Topic that I think she will love! My info was also pulled, already! Over 8,000 people signed up for this one… probably because it is the last year… and most seem really excited about following through!
I am feeling a bit better, today, although I am still a little hoarse and at one point, my ear rang…No, I didn’t answer it! I pretty much took it easy and didn’t clean, either.
We had like 2 minutes of rain, here; which sounded and smelled nice, but really didn’t help our water shortage.
When I say Gain, I don’t mean weight Gain. I mean accomplishment, etc… and when I say Pain….Well….
I got another box packed, more stuff put in the donation bag, and started cleaning the bathroom before being hit by a Migraine… probably sinus related..and needing a break. This one came with coughing, sneezing, sore throat and a possible, swollen gland. Not to concerned, but, it still hurts when I swallow. Feeling a bit better with the Migraine gone but still have a few other symptoms. I am wondering if this could be weather related even though I stay inside. I try to use the fan a lot more then the air conditioner.
When cleaning the bathroom, I wound up scratching the toilet while removing some tough stains. Can anyone recommend anything to get set in stains from bathtub and cabinets that won’t scratch and is animal friendly?
Something, I have around the house already, would be perfect and purr fect, as well.
Woke up early this morning after playing games on my phone til 2:15, and was surprisingly full of energy. I got back to working on my Boundaries Workbook .. which needs to become a habit, again… and even worked out, as I colored my hair.
The same color..just darker again
Two friends have updated their hair color, lately; so, I figured it must be time.
My Mortgage Girl got in touch and my credit only needs to go up 2 points in order to be approved for a loan! Plus, the loan will be approved for more than the other girl said, so I will have more options open to me.
One question though for any of you Real Estate people out there: If I get approved for a specific amount, that does not mean I have to spend that whole amount, does it? Example, If I get approved for $100k, can I still choose a place for $70k? I don’t want to have to go really high just because I was approved. The mortgage girl said.. Let’s call her “MG”..that different banks approve different amounts and some won’t go lower. What exactly does this mean? Sorry, just realized that was two questions.
Anyway, I am excited because it looks like I might be out of here before the space rent goes up in October, which is my goal.
Also, and this might sound dumb, but, with Puma gone, my cats and I are ready for a new start. I still miss her hanging out by her… okay, she thought it was hers…wall heater.
Thank you all so much for your support on my rant, yesterday. One thing I love about WordPress is that I can be myself, incognito without being judged. If you are into judging, you are visiting the wrong blog. It means a lot just to have people listen. Of course, the support helps, too.
That being said;.
After venting to a few close friends before giving it up to God, I slept solid last night, and awoke ready for a new day! It was a lazy day, but the morning was awesome spending Zoom time with my Bible Study Group.
I have a request for you all, if you are so inclined.
Yesterday, I gave a Homeless bag to one of our Homeless, here in Vegas. I buy extra from the store to add to the bags I put together. My heart goes out to them, especially during this heatwave and I have had at least one person ask if I had a bottle of water, I could spare. So, I now make sure to include water, Gatorade, etc.. along with the other stuff. Here’s my request:
If you live in a place with lots of Homeless around, especially during this hot weather. Would you be willing to at least give one or two a bottle of water? Maybe before the Summer is over? After all, water is a basic necessity.
You don’t have to give money or put a bag together and you can pass it out the car window when the Police aren’t around. You don’t even have to tell me, if you do…but it would mean a lot to know we are all helping a fellow man…or woman, as the case may be.
Happy Sunday, tomorrow and Happy Father’s Day to those who celebrate.
