Sharing Saturday is cancelled today due to the fact that I have COVID.
I had a severe Migraine all day yesterday so took the Home Test and tested positive. I went to Emergency last night and had to call 9-1-1 in order to get there. They didn’t do much but calmed the pain so I slept all night when I got home.
I will say I liked the hospital (Henderson Hospital) compared to some I have been to. They are very caring and quick.
I feel Fluish with achey muscles, as well.
I am sure this is more Omicron but the Quarantine is the same.
I guess this is when I can be extra thankful for cell phones.
I hope you all have a good weekend.
So, I go to Best Buy ( I know someone who calls it Worst Buy) to return/exchange the DVD Set (refer to yesterday’s Post, please) to discover they won’t take it back because I took the plastic off the case. Well, let’s see, they double wrapped it, so I could not read the back until I got the movie out, then discovered it was the wrong movie!
Needless to say, I gave the movie/show series to Cin, and will order what I really want when I get paid!
This sucks, though…and to make it worse, after talking to the Customer Service Guy and the Manager, I was near tears when leaving and they said, “Have A Nice Day!”.
Seriously? Someone should punch them in their faces for that!
My favorite Horror Movie is Friday-The-13th, and a friend sent me the entire series for Christmas. The problem was, it was Blue Ray/Digital and I have a regular DVD Player. So, I took it to Best Buy where they gave me a refund on a Gift Card and suggested I order it online. They even pointed out which one to get! So, I order it and after a week or more of waiting, it arrived! But…
This isn’t the Horror Movie! Sure, it’s called Friday-The-13th and it even says “The Series”, but, where’s Jason? I read the back and it’s about people who run an Antique Shop who sell weird items. Turns out, this is a television show with same name! What The Heck? Why would they do that?
Needless to say, I was not amused. So, I called Best Buy Customer Service and I am going tomorrow to return this and get another refund to order the right one. The good news is, it is a lot cheaper and I will probably be able to afford another movie, also.
FYI- The television show was originally called, ‘The 13th Hour’ until they changed it, which in my opinion, was a horrible call.
Have you ever wondered how people think and turn out the way they do, or did?
Sometimes, I think I should have been a Sociologist or Psychologist, if that didn’t take so much schooling and memorization of Dates and the great Doctors and Scientists like Freud and Pavlov.
Anyway, that’s one reason I read a lot of the books I do. Books about Killing, Serial Killers, Books about People like Jim Jones and Adolf Hitler.
Hitler was actually quite intelligent until he got into the idea of Wars and The Perfect Race. He was the Black Sheep of his family and wasn’t afraid to do his own thing.
Child Killers and Parents who kill their children also fascinate me. Seriously, how does one get to that point? And for a child to have no remorse is beyond comprehension!..
So, what type of books do you like to read and what attracts you to the genre?
Last night was weird. I didn’t sleep because my muscles ached and I couldn’t get comfortable. Don’t Ask!
Needless to say, today, I did not even get dressed. I was exhausted. I wound up eating and sleeping most of the day. I also developed a Migraine, but, I was free of them on the weekend.
Susy’s stuffed Bear arrived but it’s way to small for what she wants it for (Hump-A-Bear) so I will give it away and pick up a normal sized Bear from The Goodwill, soon.
I have been reading the book ‘Dracula’ by Bram Stoker, lately, and I have to admit I never knew how much it involved. I knew about Dracula being a Vampire but this covers a lot more than just Dracula, himself. If you like Vampire books and haven’t read it yet, I really recommend it. Vampire books aren’t usually my thing, but Dracula is a Classic and I got a good deal on it at The Goodwill, so I couldn’t pass it up.
Unfortunately, being as involved as it is, it is going to take a while to finish it, so I don’t know if I will complete my reading goal on Goodreads, this year.
Let me share with you what I have Learned/Re-Learned this week.
Please participate with your own Knowledge or Re-Knowlege? In the comments.
The DMV is by appointment only for most things. You have to put what service you want, where, and then find an appointment. After 3 different tries, I finally have an appointment scheduled for the 26th.
Don’t trust your Medical Insurance Group. It’s been discovered that they won’t send a Grievance Form for my old Primary Care and I need to write an actual letter… after telling me, one was being mailed. So, I have been waiting for nothing but will definitely be writing, soon.
Also, am still only taking one Anti-Rejection Med, as my doctor stopped refilling it and I don’t see my new doctor until the 2nd.
I am Learning to be proud of my accomplishments while alone. I only have one more box to go through outside. Am still organizing inside but have to stop a bit until my Handyman comes back. But, I am getting proud of my little place and am really happy that my family is back together. While I may not plan to live here in this trailer, forever…I will make it mine for the meantime.
I have also been Re-Learning that ‘Gifting’ is my Love Language. I love giving gifts to people! It felt so good to give a friend a Christmas Gift who had received nothing from anyone! Or, to give a Homeless Person some food or a Blanket, knowing it will help them out.
Do you have a Love Language? If so, what is it?
I hope to read about what you all have Learned and Re-Learned in the comments.
Have a Wonderful Week.
A lot of us have Storage Sheds or are using Storage Units so this question is for you:
If you lost your house and everything in it, would you be able to replace most of your belongings from the Shed stuff?
My answer is ‘No!’.
Right now,the main thing in my Storage is old files and paperwork.
Do you Follow The Confusing Middle at ConfusingMiddle.com here on WordPress? Well, you should! They give these super cool weekly Prompts to write about.. like this one.
The subject of “Nothing”.
You know, there is really no such thing as Nothing. It’s seriously impossible to do. You will ask someone, “What are you doing?” and they will reply, “Nothing”. But, that’s a Lie! They could have been Thinking, Daydreaming, Sleeping, Peeing, Picking Their Nose, Watching Television, etc.. but I guarantee you they were doing Something! It might not have been important but physical Nothing is impossible.
Future Plans? “What are you doing today?”. “Nothing”. is also impossible. You just don’t know what you are doing yet. You haven’t set any actual plans, but once again, you will wind up doing Something, whether you like it or not.
I think the only way I can believe in Nothing is in the Biblical sense. But even then, there was Darkness, and God said, “Let there be light!” (Genesis).
Why do they call them Nightmares? I get the Night part but horses or Mares have nothing to do with it. And what causes these things? Last night, I had Nightmares almost all night and even woke myself up once as I was being choked…in my Nightmare. I woke myself up with a scream, but it must not have been to loud because the cats stayed asleep.
Then, I finally woke up with a Migraine this morning. This one was weird as, I was a bit disoriented and when I opened Tuna for the cats, the water from the can went everywhere. Ugh. So after that, I went back to bed with an Imatrex.
Anyway, here’s what I accomplished today.
Went to bank so rent paid through February and debts paid off. Exchanged my Friday-The-13th series (Blue Ray & Digital) received for Christmas for a Best Buy Gift Card. Then ordered the same series and ‘The Making of A Serial Killer’ online with a few bucks to spare. Mailed Tra’s Christmas/Birthday Gifts since we won’t be getting together for a while. Went to Storage Facility and changed to a smaller storage unit saving me $30. a month. Transferred everything from old storage unit to new. Plus, brought an outside Trunk home to use, and donated a few things to the Green Room The Storage Facility has a room they use where people donate and take stuff. When storage facilities aren’t paid, the stuff gets put in there, or when people move in or out, they can take things they need and leave things they don’t. The room is called The Green Room because it is painted Blue. The Trunk is mine. I donated a small table, a desk stool and a nightstand/end table that is nice but I dropped it, so the back might need to be nailed on and a new Dryer Vent.
*Let’s see how many of you missed that, if you actually admit it. Lol
Tomorrow, I am hoping to go to the DMV and get some stuff accomplished, there.
I like to try new foods and, I came across a Gluten-Free, Dairy Free Lasagna made by Cal-Flout. It is all grain and made with Cauliflower. Now, I love Cauliflower. But, this stuff was horrible. It was seriously tasteless and even after adding Garlic Salt, it didn’t get any better. The consistency was more like an Omelette. Blech! Now I know one food to stay away from.
I just finished reading the book ‘Pilgrims Progress’s by John Bunyan. I happened to have a copy in with my books and didn’t remember reading it. Anyway, it’s interesting but written more for a child. It’s about a man named Christian who leaves his wife and family to go find God in the Promised Land. It talks a lot about the pitfalls and trials on the road, as well as, what and who to watch out for. I like the dialogue and the names..Mr Doubtful, Mr. Hopeful, etc.. I liked the idea of the book but definitely not the ending. It is a classic, though..so I do recommend reading it at least once, if you like to read.
