I would say Back To Normal but who wants to be Normal? And, what is Normal anyway? Normal for one guy featured on ‘My Strange Addiction’ is wearing Casts even though he hasn’t broken any bones. He likes the feeling of the Cast, and loves the attention he gets.
Anyway, picked up Monkeys meds today for her appointment, found a cheaper place to Board the cats (decided to take Tara to Cin’s with me), went to the Post Office and mailed a few packages plus picked up mail and bought stamps, went gambling a bit, Albertsons and Port-Of-Subs. Plus, did a Goodwill drop-off. (Cat Bridge, Printer, Sandwich Maker, Muffin Pan and Magazine).
They lock up the Permanent Markers at Albertsons and you have to ask for assistance, which is silly. To make it worse, the employee has to take the Marker to the Cashier. You can’t carry it with you! What are they afraid of; people changing the prices in the store? It’s like a $3.00 item,not a Diamond Ring or anything that can cause harm…. except outside where people can use it for graffiti. But, it’s not like they ask what you are using it for. They will still sell it to you.
Found a possible place.. actually no, I am not going there. It isn’t possible as, I haven’t heard from my mortgage girl. Looking at rental options before actually scheduling Boarding, and getting some quotes for Movers.
Oh Yes, I also wrapped a Christmas Gift, as I wrap as soon as I buy and receive. It makes things a lot easier, that way.
Most of the movie theaters in Las Vegas are located in a casino. So, if you are a Gambler, the smell of theater buttered popcorn wafts toward you until you finally decide to give in.. until;
I go to the counter and order a small, buttered popcorn. I have a $5. bill to pay and the guy repeats my order and goes “Your total is $7.90”. I thought he was joking! I sort of giggled and said, “Yeah, Right.” and he goes, “No, really. It’s $7.90”. I go, “Never Mind. I am not paying $7 dollars for Popcorn.” and I came home and made it myself.
Well, the house has been sold again for what I hope is the final time. They are going to turn in the Background Check tomorrow. I am going to believe this is going to be the final time, as I continue to pray that it is.
I don’t usually Post twice, but, since I sucked yesterday.
I spoke to a Realtor today. I am going to put my For Sale Sign up, tomorrow! Wish me luck!
I will keep cleaning and packing, as well.
If you know anyone interested, I am selling my mobile home in Riviera Mobile Home Park, 2038 Palm St, Las Vegas NV. I won’t add spc # here, though. It’s a 1-2 bedroom because the 2nd bedroom is actually surrounded by sliding doors, fresh paint outside, good roof, built in 63. The space Rent is $565 with pool, clubhouse, laundry room and car wash areas.
, Some of these Sellers on some of these sites are seriously ridiculous!
I ordered a figure that looked nothing like the picture of the actual item..in my opinion. I contacted the Seller who gave me the 3rd degree and took an attitude. So, I left him a polite yet negative review. The Seller then messages me that my negative review caused eBay to ban him from selling anymore… and I felt guilty for ruining his business. I even offered to revise my review to help him out. However, after talking to Cin about it, I contacted eBay Customer Service. It turns out not only is the seller Not banned, but, they Don’t ban sellers for negative reviews. Which means, The Seller is a Liar! I Do Not Like Liars! Needless to say, upon receiving his request for my revision, I declined. He then proceeded to message and ask me why. I responded by telling him what Customer Service told me and that I will Not be guilt tripped into deleting an honest review, as well as ending with “Please don’t message me, anymore!”.
People who run businesses need to stop getting butt hurt just because a customer isn’t happy. Maybe just make it right and keep a good attitude.
By the way, this was his 2nd negative review in the last 6 months, so he has a decent track record.. unless others have fallen for his guilt trips.
Thank you all for your prayers. Cin is home from the hospital. No surgery was necessary.
I am selling the Washer & Dryer that J gave me since they don’t fit. If you know anyone here in Vegas or Henderson, please pass the word. $200. for both and they work fine.
Taking another break from the news, soon. So frustrated with this world. Did you hear about Dr. Suess books being banned because some of his characters could have been considered racist in their appearance?
I am getting so tired of the Bullshit and also seriously concerned for our future.
Slavery cannot even be spoken of.. What’s next? If you were forced to burn your books because of the topics of slavery or race; how would you feel? This is the stuff that happened to the Jews before the Holocaust! We need to try to fight this Idiocy, but how? And, what if they go after our Bible? It’s full of history with wars and slavery.
While this isn’t necessarily about the physical book type items, we can’t let it confuse us. There were Slaves and the Holocaust did happen! Gender is assigned at birth and nothing really changes that. Girls played house with dolls and were taught to be wives and mothers; and boys played with trucks and looked forward to fighting in wars or working in the mud. Boys didn’t care to see dolls in the stores and girls knew trucks and cars were in the Boys Toys section.
We have to hang on to what we know as the truth in our history or history is doomed to repeat itself.
Anyone else do the bored eating? You aren’t really hungry, but, the food is there..
The Washer & Dryer won’t fit in my trailer/mobile home. I don’t know why it is one person measures one way and another a different way. But, I trust My Handyman. So I am pricing Washers and Dryers and may even get myself a portable. My new/old ones from J. are up for sale. I got them Free so I am selling them cheap. It will still be more then I had before.
The other purchase I need to do is get two new windows. My slatted ones are a bitch and don’t close all the way so the kitchen is super drafty. The sizes are hard to find though since they have been here since this place was built in 1961.
I must say, it is an amazing feeling to have all my bills paid and money left over in the bank. Plus, I don’t have to worry about bank overdraft charges.
Reminder- If you are a business I have no interest in, privately selling something or do not have a semi-normal profile photo; I Will Block You From Following Me. until you get the hint.
Today was the last day for Moving Sale preparation and I even talked J into putting up Free Dog signs, to give Zorro a chance.
This is Zorro:
I, also bought a cute, Christmas Snowman Statue from J. that she almost didn’t sell to me. Don’t ask.
Anyway, while leaving Walgreens, I accidentally bumped the car behind me. Luckily, it’s a piece of shit car and I believe it is a very, minor dent. My car is fine. We exchanged insurance, blah, blah..plus, he and his mom were Christians so all was calm. Except, he didn’t have his License and just rattled off the info and he had to call his brother for the insurance info since it was his brothers car and it was wrong in the glovebox. Anyway, my insurance will cover it and I just pray my rates don’t spike much; if at all. Just as we are finishing up, a lady runs up to me saying, “That guy hit your car!” My car was parked at a slight angle with the emergency flashers on and some old guy backed into it, then drove off.
Once again, my car is fine..but the guy should have stopped. It’s the principle. Can you imagine if I had to call the insurance company back with a separate claim? You know, I named my car ‘Blessing’ and she really is. Maybe that’s why she is not getting damaged. Lol
Anyway, it’s only 7 something, but tomorrow is the first day of the sale and I have to get up early.
Please pray Zorro gets a new home, C. and I have patience, and J. sells a lot!
Oh, and my BFF and family Finally received their Christmas presents after a month a half. Thanks USPS.
My neighbors Yard Sale has ended. Nobody bought anything today and only 3 people came. Last weekend she made around $600. and yesterday maybe around $60 which, for a Yard Sale, is pretty good. Most Yard Sales, I am lucky to make $40. Last week she was extremely resistant to lowering prices or making deals so we believe her reputation proceeded her which is why most didn’t return. Of course, there is also the matters of Covid19 and job loss plus the fact that most people don’t need a lot of garden decorative type items. I would up getting two black cat figurines for my Halloween decor, a sleeping black and white cat figurine…but I need to repaint it’s nose…and a nice black skirt. I also got a free bottle of Red Rooster wine which is super old. I just hope it is good.
I do have a few things I could sell, but, not enough for a Yard Sale, so am considering selling on ebay.
