Nightmares & Busy

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.

Almost Clear

I have been totally making progress at unpacking boxes. Only 5-6 more to go! I have also been repacking a few to put back in Storage. But, I am going to get a smaller storage unit now, and save some money. I am seriously Not planning on living here, forever and don’t want to have to start from scratch when I move again.

Looking forward to getting paid on Wednesday, as, I have a lot of things to get done including paying the Rent for January and February. I am super thankful to have a caring and lenient Manager, here.

Anyway, I am feeling a lot better and got a lot organized, today. Also, went out with Cin for a bit since I need to eat a bit better and to have a little bit of fun after being sick for a week.

Still New Years Eve

It’s still technically New Years Eve here so I didn’t miss today.

Cin and I went gambling and we both spent a bit more than originally intended. They gave cash and point prizes every 20 minutes but didn’t call us in the four hours we were there. Then we went to IHOP for dinner. Very few people were there, which was fine.

When I was a child, I used to make myself stay up on New Years Eve so I could go outside and bang on pots and pans while yelling Happy New Year!

Now, it seems I am usually up at midnight anyway, although playing games on my phone, while in bed.

One thing on my Bucket List is to stay in a hotel on the Strip some New Years Eve. That would be fun.

Sorry to end on a sad note. But, Betty White died. She was 99 years old. They don’t make shows like The Golden Girls, anymore.

Anyway, as most are signing off today

‘Will see you (or at least be blogging to you) next year

Stress Life & Phone Plan

The weekend was busy.  Not sure if in a good way. 

The government is helping to pay for people’s phones and plans through Cricket..and a few other companies…so I will only have to pay $5.00 a month for the next 6 months.  This included a new phone which is annoying to get set up. Unfortunately, the reception really sucks between Cin and me, as well as, between me and another friend in Henderson.  Yet, my friend in Texas can hear me clearly.

  So, we got the phones on Friday, then went gambling where the machines refused to pay out.  This was our 2nd or 3rd time at Emerald Island, so we have decided not to return there.  Pizza Hut was good.  Got the $11.99 Family Meal each and still have some left.  Couldn’t find the movies we wanted to watch for free, though, so wound up watching television.  Of course, sleeping at someone else’s house is never the same, so that threw my body off, too.

Today, we went back to Cricket to sort out some stuff on the phones..here, is hoping the reception will “fix itself through the transition”..per the girl at the store..then came home with a Migraine from Hell. 

Took 2 Imatrex or one full one.  Part of it could be stress over the phone plan, the fact Cins’ cars air-conditioning doesn’t work and the fact that I am running out of anti-rejection meds again. Gotta figure out just what my brother is covering, so I can start budgeting for them, better.

Anyway, looking forward to going to sleep without drugs (Imatrex) now, so, have a great night!

Having Credit Or Not

I really don’t understand how Credit works and here’s why:

You need Credit to build Credit and if you don’t have Credit, it’s hard to start building. Sometimes, you need a deposit or an account where you put so much money in first in order to prove you will pay.

Here is my scenario:

The mortgage company said I needed my Credit to go up by 2 points before they do another Hard Pull. The other day my Credit score says one company went up one point and the other went down 12. I’m like, What the heck? Turns out, by using a store card I haven’t used in a while, my Credit score dropped. But, I have already made a payment, in hopes it will go back up quickly. Every payment I make on time..or hopefully earlier…raises my score. If I pay off both my open store accounts, I won’t have any Credit and that would totally hurt me, because I mainly use debit, which is not reported.

Painting Progress

The house was started today. Praying it’s not windy tomorrow or can’t paint. This is today’s end.

That is the house with the old paint scraped off and pressure washed.

Migraines come and go. Was fine this morning but the day was loud and am now stressing over money.

Have a great Sunday!

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.

Quiet Payday

When your on Disability and get paid only once a month, the day it hits your bank means a lot. Since the rent was covered with the last Stimulus; it was nice to pay off almost all debts and get down to just the car payment. I say “almost” because I forgot a small bill.

I am stocked on food and I took out some money for the laundromat and to wash my car, so I am pretty well set, this month. Plus, I was even able to get a set of Vegetable Shaped Catnip toys. The cats favorite toy looks like Kale and reads ‘Kale Yeah’. They fight over it; the set has Carrot, Corn, Zucchini and Banana..to name a few. I am going to throw away a few of their old toys, once the new set arrives.

I still hope and pray we get another Stimulus Check so I can actually pay a head on the car and maybe put something away in Savings. I would also like to get some Migraine Patches to try, but have to wait on that.

This month has been the worst for Migraines and I don’t know why. Maybe stress over Jeans animals? I know they are not my responsibility, but my heart breaks that she gave them away and even more for that dog, as I really doubt they will adopt him out.

Prayers Please that I can give that situation to God.
