Busy Day

Since it’s my Payday (Yes, Disability is still a payment) it was busy.

Started off by paying bills, then to put the Down Payment in the bank; before going to Mattress Firm. My mattress now is fun, but, not comfortable. It bends to one side so you feel like you are going to slide off. Plus, it’s a bit hard..which might be affecting my Migraines. Anyway, Mattress Firm is having a sale and I got a Queen sized Memory Foam Tulo Mattress that is Lavender scented at like half price! Really excited, but am going to wait till I move to use it!

After that, it was lunch at KFC where I met a guy!

He has money as he owns the restaurant chain. But, I think this relationship is short lived because I would have to visit him. He has to monitor the customers and a lot of women come to see him!

After lunch was gambling and I set an amount and did pretty well sticking to it.

Cin has a bit of a problem in that every time we go and get ready to leave, she sees a different machine and goes, “I should really try this one”.; then spends more money, she really shouldn’t. While there, a Migraine started from the smoke in the casino so, I really needed to get home and take my meds.

Stopped to get my mail on the way back..(when I am with someone, I just have them stop, so I don’t have to walk.) and was shocked to find a package in the mail! My Secret Santa from Reddit is still at it and he sent the Purple Sugar Skull Bath Set I wanted!

This picture doesn’t give it credit, but, it’s amazing! Plus, I think there might be one more thing on the way. I think the guy spent like $200.00 on me!

The people who bought the house called this afternoon and are super worried about the Background Check. My manager is asking personal questions that should have nothing to do with their qualifications like, “Why are you buying a trailer when you own a house?”. Who cares? if they have the money to pay the space Rent, let them! Anyway, I understand being nervous but I am not going to panic.

I believe Gods’ got this and whatever happens will be his will. I can’t even set the timing. I just have to pray it all works out.

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!

Saturday Sharing

Things I learned this week.

I answered a question on Reddit about what you believe happens when you die, and was accused of taking the easy way out with Paschal’s Wager.  I didn’t even know what that was!  I just answered with my belief.  And, No, I am not going to share the definition.  You get to look it up.

I also looked up the meaning of the word, ‘Dalliance’ so, you could say I learned that, too.

I also learned that I really don’t want to visit Disneyland much anymore because the Racism crap is getting ridiculous. They are redoing all the rides I grew up with and even took out the song ‘Zippity-Doo-Da’ due to being Racist and having roots from ‘Song-Of-The-South’.

I learned a lot of ways to kill a tree (Don’t Ask).

But, the main thing I learned this week is that Red Hot Candy gives me Migraines. I am pretty sure it’s the red dye because I have no problem with Cinnamon. Red Hots are one of my favorite candies, but after having Migraines for 4 days straight, I have no problem going back to missing out.

What did you all learn?

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.

Mortgage News, etc..

Woke up early this morning after playing games on my phone til 2:15, and was surprisingly full of energy. I got back to working on my Boundaries Workbook .. which needs to become a habit, again… and even worked out, as I colored my hair.

The same color..just darker again

Two friends have updated their hair color, lately; so, I figured it must be time.

My Mortgage Girl got in touch and my credit only needs to go up 2 points in order to be approved for a loan! Plus, the loan will be approved for more than the other girl said, so I will have more options open to me.

One question though for any of you Real Estate people out there: If I get approved for a specific amount, that does not mean I have to spend that whole amount, does it? Example, If I get approved for $100k, can I still choose a place for $70k? I don’t want to have to go really high just because I was approved. The mortgage girl said.. Let’s call her “MG”..that different banks approve different amounts and some won’t go lower. What exactly does this mean? Sorry, just realized that was two questions.

Anyway, I am excited because it looks like I might be out of here before the space rent goes up in October, which is my goal.

Also, and this might sound dumb, but, with Puma gone, my cats and I are ready for a new start. I still miss her hanging out by her… okay, she thought it was hers…wall heater.

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.

Today & Movie Review

Woke up feeling Flu-ish this morning then a Migraine hit at noon; but doing better, now. Ordered some fresh food from Amazon to be delivered tomorrow, which should help also.

Watched a movie with C. the other day which I Don’t recommend. The funny thing is I believe one of the Bloggers I Follow suggested it. It’s called ‘The Stuff’.

The movie starts with someone finding this ‘Stuff’ in the snow and eating it. Apparently, it tastes really good. Then, it switches to the Marketing frenzy, people acting really weird and dying from it, a little boy who decides it can’t be made anymore, a company take-over, and more. There is some action. I kind of take back my recommendation..if you are really bored or just want to watch a weird, semi-blah movie..go a head and watch it… The only thing that sucks is; there was supposed to be a 2nd movie after that. I wouldn’t know how to find it unless it’s called ‘More Stuff’.

Now, this is starting to sound like a George Carlin sketch.

A-Z Challenge-S = Secret Santa

I love Secret Santa, but not when people can’t keep it a secret. A lot of different places do it…the office, families and even Reddit.com.

The principle is this;

You put the names of all participants in a box, hat, whatever, set a price limit and have everyone fill a paper with their name, likes, dislikes,etc…then draw a name, individually. They cannot get themselves. Give them a date for the reveal.

Reddit.com has the largest Secret Santa in the world on the internet. You sign up for Reddits.gifts. Fill out a form, wait till Matching Day when you are randomly matched, get your gift sent out by a specific date and post a picture of whatever you receive. Reddit has Secret Santa Exchanges every few months with different themes like Cookbooks,Autos,80’s,Plants,etc… There is bound to be something you are interested in. But, the Christmas one is the largest with the most participants.

Forgive me since this was more factual then fun. I picked up Pumas’ ashes today and am a bit stressed so a Migraine has started. Going down with pain meds in a few. I put the box on the shelf in the bag for now as, I just can’t deal. Maybe, when I move, I will find somewhere to put her.

Yes, my mind is back on that despite not doing well at saving money. The house… okay, trailer…is being painted outside, next month.
