I Finally got to see the Friends Reunion and it left me a bit emotional. I have never been much of a tv watcher, preferring to read a book, but a few shows really resonated with me
The Brady Bunch was like my family…well, the one I really wanted. My siblings and I are years apart so I didn’t have a lot of people to play with and my Foster Sister was the complete opposite of me, and didn’t stay long.
Then, there was Seinfeld. The conversations and things they pondered were very interesting, and taught me to see the world in a different light.
Friends was incredible! I remember wishing I had friends like that and being able to see myself and a few of my friends, in some of the characters. Friends was one of those shows that I had a hard time when it ended.
What are 3 shows that made a difference to your life and why?
One thing I learned this week from doing research is the law in Nevada that animals are not necessarily taken away from Abusers unless they have been abused 3 times! I have also discovered that my Ex is in jail and hope he stays there so the organization can save Bruno.
I have also had the reminders of giving control to God and trusting in him when I am under stress and unable to change a situation.
As well as, to stop allowing people to use me and not do their jobs, correctly. I am waiting on a call from the Manager of my Mortgage Girl! I am tired of her lack of communication and Follow-Thru.
What have you learned or been particularly reminded of, this last week?
Received my Secret Santa Gifts today and am really excited! I can’t wait to move and set up my new place! The person that had me spent about $40-50!
Just read an article about Florida and some people living in some condos…not the ones that came down…were given 15 minutes to get whatever belongings they can out of their homes. Apparently, the condo has been inspected and deemed unsafe so the management is deciding what to do.
Let’s think about that for a minute!
What could you get out of your house in 15 minutes? You have already gotten yourself and your animals out. If it were me, I would probably be grabbing the first things I can which would hopefully be some of my packed boxes mainly books and collectibles and Puma! I would also try to grab my photo albums and Yearbooks, if I had time to focus. 15 minutes is not a long time!
I guess some people got food, medicine and clothes, one person got their fish tank…no idea if there was anything in it.
But, just like the game, if you had to leave and take only 3 things with you, what would they be…I ask, what would you try to get out if you only had 15 minutes?
Hide and I went to lunch today and it was delicious!
We went to Vegenation where I had the Pamela Anderson Tacos and Hide had the Tori Williams Burrito! She had so much left, she sent half of it home with me, because her husband doesn’t like a lot of greens.
Everything the restaurant serves is Vegan.
Vegetarian means you eat all or mainly Vegetables. There are different types of Vegetarians of which I am Flexitarian as, once in a while, I will eat Chicken or Fish. Vegan, on the other hand, means you cannot eat any part of or anything that comes from an animal; which includes Cheese, Eggs, Milk and Butter. Going from Vegetarian to Vegan should not be a huge jump, but what do you use for Butter substitutes that taste even close?
I had a blogger friend comment that he would be a bad Vegan; so, here is my question and maybe Challenge…for all my meat loving friends.
Have you ever tried going Vegetarian or Vegan? What happened?
What’s the longest you’ve been without Meat?
And, if you haven’t tried it, would you consider trying it and making a blog post about your experience?
I don’t know how many of you have moved recently, but, it’s amazing the stuff we forget we had when we pack things up drawer by drawer. Plus, when you think you are done with an area, there’s more you forgot. I have a full bag for Goodwill and am ready to start another one. This is also proof of my belief of ‘Out With The Old, In With The New’. I am Following one Blogger that is dealing with her housekeeping issue by emptying her entire house. I am not envious, there.
This also makes me think;. You know those questions people ask like, ‘If you lose everything but can take 3 things with you, what would they be?’. Well, now my answer would be me, my cats and I guess whatever the closest things are. Hopefully, they would be some packed boxes. …
No, I am Not moving yet, but, it never hurts to prepare!
One gentleman in Florida said he will miss his coin collection. While life is not about material possessions; it is interesting what material possessions are important.
Speaking of things, look what came today from my Secret Santa!
They are tin signs. Aren’t they cool? The one on the left says, ‘Relax at Camp Crystal Lake’. and the one on the right could probably be Jason’s cat, if he had one.
I have a suspicion something more is on the way, as well…so, will keep you, updated.
Thank you all so much for your support on my rant, yesterday. One thing I love about WordPress is that I can be myself, incognito without being judged. If you are into judging, you are visiting the wrong blog. It means a lot just to have people listen. Of course, the support helps, too.
That being said;.
After venting to a few close friends before giving it up to God, I slept solid last night, and awoke ready for a new day! It was a lazy day, but the morning was awesome spending Zoom time with my Bible Study Group.
I have a request for you all, if you are so inclined.
Yesterday, I gave a Homeless bag to one of our Homeless, here in Vegas. I buy extra from the store to add to the bags I put together. My heart goes out to them, especially during this heatwave and I have had at least one person ask if I had a bottle of water, I could spare. So, I now make sure to include water, Gatorade, etc.. along with the other stuff. Here’s my request:
If you live in a place with lots of Homeless around, especially during this hot weather. Would you be willing to at least give one or two a bottle of water? Maybe before the Summer is over? After all, water is a basic necessity.
You don’t have to give money or put a bag together and you can pass it out the car window when the Police aren’t around. You don’t even have to tell me, if you do…but it would mean a lot to know we are all helping a fellow man…or woman, as the case may be.
Happy Sunday, tomorrow and Happy Father’s Day to those who celebrate.
Another box packed and my kitchen junk drawer is cleaned. It’s amazing what was found in there.. including some old money my mom gave me that might be worth something. So, I got hold of an appraisal type company to see what they will offer.
The Mortgage Girl is looking at approving me for an amount which is way to high. I would rather get a place I can afford and both my options will be gone soon, if she doesn’t make adjustments.
Has anyone heard of ‘Landmark’? I don’t know if I would call it a Personal Journey, A Religion or A Cult, but, I have a friend involved, so I did some research….(if this person is reading this; I am in no way trying to offend you..these are just my thoughts.).. Upon doing a few hours of research, one thing I learned is that this stems from Scientology which I will not get involved in. I have no problem with my friend being involved… except I do believe it may not end well… and will be there for her, in case…but..I prefer to keep my beliefs and not get involved. However, I do wonder if you have ever heard of anyone or if you, yourselves, experienced Landmark, and what you think?
On another note, Twas a sick Day, today….I really wanted to use the word, “Twas”.. Don’t Ask! Woke up dizzy, stomach pain and diarrhea. Didn’t start feeling better until after an hour and a half nap. I did eat a little. I am praying it’s nothing and I will be back to my usual, energetic self, in the morning.
But, as I was wiping down walls, earlier; I was condemning myself for not doing so, more often. They are really dusty and furry.. it’s no wonder, I don’t get sick, all the time.
Don’t worry, I have berated myself enough, so you don’t need to join in.
Missed the Friends Reunion because I don’t have HBO Max. Even signed up for Hulu after reading that you could get HBO Max as part of their free trial; but alas, you can’t. So, now I have to wait for it to be shown on YouTube.
Watched the Happy Days Reunion on YouTube that I missed, last year. Actually, I only missed it then because I wasn’t going to donate to the Democratic Party in order to watch it, but, I digress. It was okay. Brought back some good memories.
That was when shows were wholesome and cool, plus, most had life lessons. I can’t stand a lot of the crap shows today. Most of the “Reality” shows really aren’t “Reality”.. which is just false advertising.
Maybe that’s one reason I like True Crime. You can’t make that stuff up.
