Angry At The Source

Before I start this, I have an important Prayer Request:

My friend, Cin, is going to the doctor today to get a Lump on her Breast checked out. Please pray it is nothing or minor. Her appointment is in 1 1/2 hours. 1:00 p.m. Las Vegas time.

As for the title, Here is the situation:

Hot Topic does not communicate with the bank they do business with. Comenity! If you have a billing or payment issue, you need to call the bank, directly.

Comenity is refusing to take responsibility for their action of doing a Hard Pull which affected my credit report, after telling me it was their system error! They actually sent me a notice saying they will not fix this issue, as it would be a ” Good Will Gesture”. NO, it would be fixing their error! I am still waiting to see if Experian can fix things with them.

Anyway, I still like Hot Topic and will continue to purchase from them but will Not use their card. It will be Cash or Debit from now on! Comenity also is behind the cards of Victoria’s Secret, Wayfair, Woman Within, and more!

So, the moral of this is; Do your research on the bank before signing up for the store card. Plus, when you get angry with a company, be sure it is with the right department!

I have now chosen to avoid cards backed by Comenity Bank, and I hope others do too.

Sneaky Doctor

So, I went to the Lab today for my Nephrologist and the Phlebotomist (that’s the one who takes blood, for those who don’t know) goes, “Does your insurance usually cover this?”. I’m like, “Yes, I never had a problem, before.”. Then she tells me the doctor added two tests (one a vitamin and one for Iron) that aren’t covered and cost $300 + dollars. I’m like, “Nope. Not paying for those.”. So, I had her delete them from the test. My appointment is on the 5th and if my Nephrologist (Kidney Specialist) says anything, I might just tell her if she wants to pay 300 or whatever dollars, I’ll go back and do it.

Speaking of money, …I was…. I gave a Homeless Bag to a guy who really needed it! Like this guy was totally shaking, and shuffling and in his own world. I don’t know if he was tripping on illegal drugs or what, Hey, maybe he was out of his medicine he can’t afford… it’s not my business. I did say an extra prayer for him, though. It made me feel good to help someone who Really needs it.

See you all tomorrow, and hopefully everyone will think of at least one thing they learned this week, to share with the class.HA! Haven’t decided yet if I will title it, ‘Saturday Share’ or ‘Sharing Saturday’. What sounds better?

7 Vegas Years

As of yesterday, I have lived in Las Vegas, NV for 7 Years (-5 months in AZ which was a waste of time).

Despite the weather at times, I still love it! The lights, the activity, the people! Even if I didn’t gamble, it’s fun to check out everything in the different hotels and casino’s.

Las Vegas is ever changing so things I remember from visiting when young are long gone, replaced with different things.

Do you like where you live? If money were no object, would you move somewhere else? As much as I like it here, sometimes I wonder about Europe like Austria. The houses are so pretty there in their little villages; but, then I wonder if I would get bored like I did in Arizona, once again coming back here. I have also considered Florida, but, there is to much rain and the size of the bugs there would keep me inside.

Doing a lot better than yesterday, but still a bit tired, so taking it easy, again.

Sinusy Me

It’s a Sinus Day. I see sleep in the near future.

I was kidding with a friend (Julestx51) because she was like this yesterday, and shared on WordPress. Thanks again. HA!

It’s Monsoon Season here and yesterday on the news, it said Nevada will be having another water shortage soon because the lake is so low; on the flip side, the weather said to expect Thunder Storms all week. Last I checked, most Thunder Storms bring rain, so can we say “Contradictory”?

Today And Tomorrow

Cleaned a third of the floor, today. When I decided to sweep and mop, I split the floor into like 4 sections and today was the 3rd. While, not a complaint necessarily, it is a bit warm for strenuous activity so this makes it, easier.

I was telling C. we need more murders! Not really..but my True Crime Channel keeps showing the same cases that I have already seen and most, I also have the book!

Hide from my Bible Study..WOW (Women Of Wisdom) group is taking me out for lunch tomorrow and since I need to eat Gluten-Free…until I get my Gluten Ease refilled…we are going to Vegenation. It is totally Vegan and the food is delicious. If you are a Vegetarian or Vegan, or even want to just try something healthy while in Las Vegas, I highly recommend it.

The Heat Is On

The hottest temperature on record for Nevada was 124 f on June 29, 1994. I can’t imagine! The hottest in Las Vegas was 118.2 f on July 24, 1842, I believe and we have come close lately, matching records of 117 f. The heat is not the worst aspect; the humidity has been really high!

One thing I have learned from this is, I don’t care how much money you have, you don’t need a personal sauna; if you crave that, just step outside for a few.

When it gets hot like this, a few songs come to mind. They are old songs and I don’t remember the bands, but here are the titles:

Some Like It Hot
The Heat Is On Hot Blooded Hot, Hot, Hot

Can you think of any songs with the word “Hot” in the title?

4 Days Free!

Of a Migraine, that is!

The one I had this morning didn’t surprise me. I was up late with fireworks and had to turn the music loud and watch tv with subtitles, so the cats didn’t freak out.

Monkey turned Psycho and bit me twice

and Susy would hear a firework go off and look at me to judge my reaction.

Tara didn’t really care.

Anyway, I usually get Migraines 2-3 times a week equalling to around 14 a month, but the amount usually drops in the Summer! So, the fact I went 4 straight days without one, is awesome!

I am in a Migraine Group on Facebook and one girl gets like 17 a month! When you are only allowed 9 Imatrex per month, that can be tough. Good thing I take them half at a time.

This is something I live with, so, I am not complaining. It’s my main Disability, and a life I am used to. I really don’t remember a life without them, although, I know I had it because these Migraines started in my 20’s. I could go back on Hormones and see if that helps, but that means started periods again, so No Thank You!

Beauty Sleep

If Beauty Sleep were real, I should be the most or one of the most beautiful women in the world! I slept round the clock last night..from around 10 p.m. until 10:16 this morning. I don’t know why. I guess my body just needed it.

Needless to say, today wasn’t the most productive. But, I did get my walking in, mailed my form off to renew my Snap Benefits, and signed up to join a Bible Study on Zoom that our church is starting on Wednesday. Monday will be for men and Wednesday nights for women. We will be studying Ephesians.

The illegal fireworks have started… it’s illegal, here in the park… and since I am “That” person, I do have the Report Form on my main page.. just in case. You can report anonymously so at least they can check the neighborhood.

Hope you all have a safe 4th-Of-July!

Healthy Or Sick

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.

My Day Was Arbitrary

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.
