No Return

So Annoyed.

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!

Getting The Right Movie

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.

Wake Night, Sleep Day, etc…

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.

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 Sick But Thankful

Took my Home COVID Test and it’s Negative. If I still feel like this tomorrow night, I will take the 2nd one. It’s probably the Flu.

All, I know is, I am tired of this. Tried to sleep and sweat on and off almost all day, Had a Double Migraine, and the Nausea was ridiculous. Just finished a mug of Soup, though and sucking on a Candy Cane now.

I remember when you were sick and you would see the doctor; if he couldn’t actually diagnose you, he would say it was a Virus..

In my case, it doesn’t help that with my Metabolic Disorder and weakened Immune System, when I do get sick, it lasts longer than most.

I was thinking though, and I am thankful to be able to feel pain, and to be normal enough to handle it. A lot of the children born with my Metabolic Disorder are unable to take care of themselves due to extreme physical and mental issues. I have surprised all the doctors for being as old as I am having been born with it,yet, being so close to Normal. The Disease I have is hereditary yet can skip generations.

Possible Exposure

No, I don’t mean Camera!

For the last few days, Cin and I have both been sick with sinus issues. Hers is mainly a runny nose, while mine is a scratchy throat, sinus headaches, fatigue, sweating,… Last night Cin called to tell me Ben’s family have COVID. I haven’t seen Ben since Christmas but Cin has and he spent time with his family the day after we got together with him for dinner. I have spent time with Cin. Needless to say, she is getting a COVID Test per her doctor and I bought a Home Kit which should arrive in a few days.

The other issue I am having is my old Primary who is Not filling the Anti rejection I Need! I have signed up with a new doctor and Pharmacy so I am going to call the Pharmacy and double check the price of Home Delivery before calling the new doctor. I pray he will simply call it in.

I got the toilet unclogged today. It’s funny the little things you can do by yourself when you have to. I borrowed a tool from the neighbors. Turns out it was actually the pole for their awning. But, I ordered an actual Toilet Snake.

Barf Bags, Being Different, & Bloggers

When moving into an RV, there are things you need to consider:. Barf Bags! I learned this last night when I was sick. I am not going into to much detail but vomiting in the sink clogs it up, and with the bathroom on the other end from the bed..Well…. Anyway, today I ordered some of those bags you keep in the car (or, in my case, RV) they have the cup to go over your mouth, are leak proof and tie at the top after each use. I also got some Anti-Nausea meds.

I am blessed in the mornings to be able to see the birds on the wires. This morning, there were about 5-7. What was funny was there were 4 birds facing front, one facing backward, then two more facing front ( approximately). The one facing backward even went around in circles for a bit, while the others watched, probably thinking, “What the heck is wrong with you?”. I like to believe I am That bird. I am Myself, and don’t really care what others think! I have never wanted to be “like everyone else”. God made me Different for a reason!

Are you a Follower of Paul’s Blog, ‘The Captains Speech’ here on WordPress? Why not? He’s great! Witty, Charming, Sarcastic and sometimes Funny As Hell. I highly recommend it. Anyway, he’s having a Blog Share Party where you share your Blog in the comments. You can meet new people, and get more Followers! I am passing the word, in case, anyone is interested.

Luck Or Blessing

Sometimes I believe Luck can be a Blessing, but a Blessing is not always Luck.

Here’s how my day went:

While emptying the trash, I accidentally threw out my bag for the Homeless. I couldn’t get it because the Trashman had just left and I wasn’t going to climb in the dumpster. Just hoping that can of Cookies will survive and someone will find it who really needs it.

Cin and I went gambling since we had decided not to go on New Years Eve (that decision may be reversed, though) and I won over $100. We all know gambling is Luck but, the extra money can be a Blessing.

Then, I went to Port-Of-Subs after doing some minor grocery shopping. I had to go before the month is out because I knew I had a $5.00 credit for my Birthday. I was starving having not eaten since Breakfast so I got a Large which came out to $10.00. (Yes, one sandwich gives me two meals.). Imagine my surprise when I was informed I actually had a $10.00 credit on my account, so the sandwich was free! A Blessing!

On the way back to the car, I found a dime in the street. Luck. Hey, every bit, helps.

Came home and developed a killer Migraine so took my Imatrex and went down for a bit. The days ending might not be Luck or a Blessing, although I suppose it’s a Blessing to be able to feel pain and to have meds to help manage it. I accepted that ending after the good day, I had.

How Not To Help

Yes, I know it’s Christmas Eve. But, I have decided to focus on Christmas Present tomorrow since it actually Christmas Day then and forget Christmas Future. How the heck do I know what the future will bring?

I read two articles today that contradicted each other. These were news articles, by the way.

The first said the Homeless Shelters are turning people away because they are to crowded, despite the cold weather.

The 2nd said we should stop passing out bags to the Homeless with food or whatever because it deters them from going to the Shelters for help.

Okay, here’s the thing:. Most Homeless Shelters aren’t that close to each other. Plus, you just admitted you are turning people away. Most people who are begging either cannot or don’t want to walk to far away from their home base.

If I want to give a Care Package out my car (Okay, a friend’s car) window to someone in need, I will! I have given Blankets, Hats, Socks and Scarves in the past which is the same thing the Shelters give, if the people can get there.

To ask for monetary donations puts these specific groups in charge of the Homeless Situation, and if you ask me, they obviously aren’t doing that good a job, anyway!

Tonight is Christmas Eve here in the states and the child in me is coming out as it does every year and I am tracking Santa Clause on the NORAD Tracker App.

While, I am an Adult, I still like to use my imagination and listen for Reindeer Hooves and Sleigh Bells as I drift off to sleep.

I wish you all a Wonderful and Blessed Christmas Eve, however you celebrate!
