Family Distrust And…

It’s sad when you can’t trust family, but, here is the latest:

FS (Foster Sis) is one of the only people I talk to in my family. She keeps in touch with Sis 2, I believe..The Handyman I use is also her sisters ex-husband…Did I lose you yet?… Anyway, FS called this morning to ask me the name of the trailer park that Cin lives in because a friend of a friend needs to find one to live. I have Not talked about moving,to FS in a long time and hardly mention Cins’ living in a trailer park, however I did text my Handyman not long ago asking him how much he would charge to help me move. I seriously think FS is fishing for info to tell me Sis, which she is Not getting.

The Buyers Finally resubmitted the Application today. I want to remain optimistic but with my Bitch Manager, I don’t know.

My pillow should arrive tonight but I can’t hold my breath for that either. With my luck, there will be another delay.

Such is life.

A Rant

This is a Rant because I need to vent!

My Sister who I am NOT speaking to or is not speaking to me… whatever…gave my new phone number to an Ex-Friend that I want nothing to do with! She knows this and probably gave her my number to simply Piss Me Off! Well, it worked. However, upon receiving the text from Ex-Friend stating she wants to talk to me, I simply responded with, “I am really not interested.” and that ended that. Her numbers have been Blocked.

As for my Sis, I am NOT going to confront her.. although, I would damn well like to… for giving out my number… especially to Ex-Friend… without my permission; unless She contacts me! I am sure if she does; it will be to call me Unchristian..blah..blah..blah..but,

I do not want Toxic people in my life.

Family Toxicity

It’s bad enough when you have to let go of “friends.” but, it’s really sad when your family members become Toxic.

I used to get really stressed when a family member was upset with me. I always wanted to feel loved and accepted. When my parents died, I pretty much figured we would all go our separate ways. However, Sis #2 has stuck by, for a while. ( I will call them Sis #1 and #2 now, for anonymity).

I think she and I really went downhill after my Divorce. She got involved in a disagreement between a friend of mine and me.. which had absolutely nothing to do with her and became friendly with ex-friend; even going so far as believing her lies about me, while at the same time, getting upset with me for wanting to be Facebook Friends with a friend of hers.. which I respected and took back my request.

Sis #2 also spied on my last blog for 8 months then got upset when I figured it out… which is why I started this one. She gets upset and either tries to guilt me or gives me the silent treatment. She hasn’t talked to me except one word texts since screaming at me over the fact that I was getting the COVID Vaccines.

The latest is a text today regarding money left by my mom. Without going into detail, the text was snotty, so I called her and of course got her machine. I stood up for myself and now she is accusing me of getting out of control and needing psychological help! I am not allowed to have an opinion when it comes to her!

Suffice it to say, we are probably done. At least, it’s back to the silent treatment which I am used to, anyway. It’s a bit sad because it is family, but, you can’t pick them.

I am glad I believe my parents are resting until the Rapture or until God comes back. Because they would not be happy with what’s happening with our family, down here.

Why I Detest The Color, Pink!

A few days ago, I posted about my favorite color which is Purple 💜 and the fact that I Hate & Detest the color Pink!  Seriously, I refuse to even own anything with Pink unless it’s a cat toy they chew up.  Food is okay because it doesn’t stick around.

  Anyway, I am now going to tell you all why I feel this way:

  My Grandmother was a very mean and selfish woman.  I seriously have no good memories of her.  I visited and stayed in her apartment once.  Her favorite color was Pink.  From the carpet to the walls to the towels..you couldn’t get away from it.  It looked like a Pepto-Bismal explosion.  She also had 4-6 locks on the door including a hook to hold the doorknob.  I was terrified if there were a fire I would have to jump out the window and land on the cement, below! I firmly believe that has a lot to do with my hatred of the color.

Of course, I was never in to frilly, lacy, crap either and the color being discussed fits right in with that.

Do you have a color you hate? Any particular reason why?

Funny Story

I know I have told you a bit about Susy.

Okay, So I probably didn’t “tell” you, I probably wrote it and you read about her…. Anyway, she is my baby and my Trouble Maker.

Today, she “helped” me make the bed, so the sheets can stay wrinkled.

But, here’s the part, I hope makes you smile. Susy is my talker.

As we were ending Bible Study via Zoom….we are on Hebrews, by the way, if you were wondering….Susy approached me just Meowing away as one of the girls asked, “Who wants to do the closing prayer?” Suzy said “Meow” so she goes, “Does the cat want to do the closing prayer?”. Seriously, the timing was perfect! But, Susy was very good and kept quiet during the closing prayer.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.

A-Z Challenge-Y = Yankee Swap

Are you ready to learn how to play a cool, party game?

This game has many names and many ways to play. One name for it is Yankee Swap and that’s how I am referring to it since we are on the letter Y. This game is not only played at Christmas, but can be played at other occasions, too.

Here is how I/you/most people play:

Get a group together and have each person bring a wrapped gift. Set a budget or bring something from home.. this is where you can get rule creative. When the person arrives, put the gift on the table and give the person a number. Don’t number the gifts. Once everyone has arrived and has numbers, the game can start. The amount of gifts will equal the amount of people, unless you bring extra.. just in case. Person 1 picks their gift and opens it. Yay, it’s a clock!..No, it does not have to be a clock. It probably won’t be. Let’s not get overly literal, here… 2nd person gets called, they can take the clock…or whatever it is… or open a new gift. If they take the clock…or whatever it is…, Person 1 opens a new gift..and so on .until all gifts are off the table. Gifts can be swapped 3x and once you have had a gift in your hands, you can’t get it back.

Some people don’t like this game, but, I think it’s fun! We played it at my Wedding Shower, though and my relatives were holding on to everything so when my turn came, I turned to my new Aunt and said, “I love you Aunt Jod, but I really love your candle.” and took it; thereby causing her to Swap. My mother got annoyed saying I was terrible and should not have done that because I was the Bride; but, that’s how you play the game!

Usually, you get some funny and some serious gifts, which is what makes it even more fun. At my church Swap, someone even brought a Betta Fish with bowl and food.

So, now you have a new party game to try! I hope you play it, sometime and find it fun.

And tomorrow is Z. The last letter of the alphabet. Endings always make me sad.

But, don’t worry, I have come up with tomorrow’s word, and will do this again next year.

A-Z Challenge-U = Understanding & Underwear

Christmas can be extremely stressfull, as mentioned previously. So, we need to be Understanding when parents, relatives or even strangers lash out. Not everyone gets to experience a peaceful, quiet, Christmas. Some people are homeless and others have to work. It’s hard to have that Holiday spirit.

When it comes to Underwear; Please remember what a terrible gift that is.

As a young adult, my sister gave me Underwear for Christmas one year. I am sure they were pretty, but, they were opened in front of the entire family, and I got super embarrassed. If you or your significant other want to get each other Underwear or Laungerie, that’s different. But, keep in mind, when and where the gift will be opened.

Monday is V and we have almost finished.

Monday morning is my 2nd Covid vaccine and I pray I don’t have side effects. Just know that if I miss a day or so due to sickness, I will still finish this challenge… although it might be a little late.

Self-Inflicted Stress

Stress is mainly caused by your reactions of what is happening around you.

Today’s Stress is brought to you by my reaction to Sis 1. 

We usually touch base once a week or so, however its been two weeks since she screamed at me about my getting the Covid19 Vaccine. She is big time Anti-Covid Vax and refuses to take it. She believes all the negative crap and thinks it kills people as well as holding the Christian viewpoint of it being or preparing us for the Mark-Of-The-Beast. So, she is not speaking to me because of my choice to get the vaccine! Just as, she got very angry with our brother and wants nothing more to do with him because he stands by Biden and doesn’t like Trump. She says it doesn’t matter that our brother is blood related, she doesn’t have to communicate with stupid people. So, this is on her. But it still hurts. I sent her a text telling her I am thinking of her; to no avail.

I found a Smart Car for sale, used. One is around $6,000 with only $500 down and payments of like $100. The other is $5,000 no payments from Private Party. I don’t know about payments again and wish I could find a way to make money for the Private Party one. Summer is coming and I really am starting to miss having a car.

But, I also Really want to move and am not sure what to do, first.

Prayers Please for God to lead me the right direction.

Yesterday Continuation Etc..

I would like to thank you all for your answers on Yesterdays Post and question if you are or are not taking the Covid Vaccine. It makes me happy when we can be adult and share our personal views without arguments and debates or name calling, etc.

My sister sent me a text of everything she believes the vaccines are made of which includes human tissue or blood and dead animal blood. I am going to make my own decision on this. I am doing my own research. I have an appointment scheduled for my first dose next week, and C. also got an appointment at the same place 15 minutes after mine. We also did the same for the 2nd dose in April.

In other news, I just listened to one of the Dr. Suess books which is being banned. “If I Ran The Zoo.” was actually being read aloud. My question is, “What’s wrong with it?” Sure, he mentions Mosques and Noah’s Ark, but I find nothing offensive, there. Maybe, it’s me but I am going to listen to the others also, that are considered Bad, if I can find them.

I believe we should have had a vote in this. I think most people think we are going overboard.

COVID Vaccine-Pro Or Con

Before you answer, let me explain my day and why I am asking;

Had a Migraine and right before I went to sleep, my sister called. We got on the subject. And, she seriously freaked out on me. She is Anti Covid Vaccine for herself and I guess for others also. She believes it’s the Mark-Of-The-Beast plus she believes all she reads of people dying from it…… Needless to say, her freak out caused my Migraine to become a double whammy needing two Imatrex…or a whole pill to go away.

I don’t want this topic to become a debate but I would like to know if you personally are getting the vaccine and why or why not? Also, if you have the choice which one are you choosing?
