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.
When I was younger, I used to love spending the night at a friends’ house. Now, I always come home, exhausted..like, “It was nice to visit but, glad I don’t live there.” C. picked me up, yesterday. First we went to Emerald Isle Casino where I only played and lost $20. Then to her house where I bought us pizza, did laundry in her small, portable washer/spinner machine, tried to crochet..but don’t think it’s my thing cause I am extremely uncoordinated..and watched television..mainly Food Network..before going to sleep. This morning we watched The Twilight Zone before heading to Walmart. Found an awesome pair of glasses that were only $110. out of pocket, thanks to insurance.
C’s cats loved all over me and my stuff, while I was there..but I missed my own. C’s trailer is really small so you can’t really walk around each other. plus any time she moved, it rocked. And that’s without wind.
I guess there is some truth in the saying, “There’s no place like home.”
I am sure most of you have heard of Mr.Toad’s Wild Ride so let me tell you about mine.
I was sitting on the bench at the park entrance during the wind, trying to set up an Uber ride. I guess I put the wrong destination in because I received notice that a driver was coming to take me to City Center. I didn’t even know where or what City Center is and quickly texted the driver the name of my actual destination. When the driver came, I even told him the correct destination. He started driving and said “No English”. Any time I said anything, he said “No English” and after getting on and off the freeway, I was freaking out. I’m like “Just let me off at the next restaurant.” But, he totally ignored me and completed the ride. I was dropped off at an auto parts store and had to get another Uber to pick me up and take me to my actual destination.
Of course I reported this to Uber, but, their Customer Service is only online.
I don’t know if I will get a refund for that ride, but, I should. It was scary watching him go the wrong way from where I really needed to go and ignoring me when I wanted out. I almost felt like I was being abducted.
Uber did say they “Took care of it” …so the driver may have been let go?” As the 2nd driver said, “They should have Google Translate.” He thinks the guy knew English and just took me for a ride.
I talked to Carvana today who 3- wayed my finance company and will be picking up the car on Sunday. Despite the fact, it is the best decision; I have to admit the tears started and it will be hard to watch them drive her away.
This decision made me think a lot about where I am in life and how I got here. I have been lost and making a lot of bad decisions since my Divorce. Then, I was happy during my 2nd marriage, but his drug habit took precedence. I could go back over. and over on “If I hadnt..If I had never…If I had only..” ..which I thought about, this morning…but that helps nothing. The past is over and I need to keep moving forward.
The car is material. I still have my cats, food, health, and a roof over my head. This is a step in the right direction. I will get over this hurdle and things will get better.
This experience is also very humbling in that I didn’t want to date someone without a car. Now, look where I am?
But dating is the last thing on my mind. God’s got this and everything works in his time.
As a Migraine sufferer, I trigger easily. So, I should know better then to look deeply into political news.
I am a Conservative and I am a Trump supporter. I watched a video showing or claiming to show proof that our election was rigged and hacked into by other countries.
* Now, this is Not going to become a Debate nor will I accept demeaning comments or name calling for my beliefs. This is my blog and my beliefs.
That being said, a lot of people debunk this video because of the person who created it. However, he interviewed people in positions of authority who had good points.
Here’s the thing: whether the video in question is right or wrong, why is it getting taken down from most every site it is aired on? Twitter, Facebook, etc.. If this video does not have factual evidence, as stated, why not let people watch it? I do believe the government has something to hide. I am going to remain firm in my faith and pray for our future.
That being said; I am also being careful. I love having a blog here and don’t want to lose it. This is why I am providing No specific information regarding what I am talking about. If you Follow politics, you’ll know.
Have you ever read an erotic portion in a book that made your body react in a way that surprised you?
I am a grown woman and I expect my body’s reaction to soft porn, but this was Not a soft porn book. It is a chapter of a book when two lovers reunite after years of separation.
The book is titled ‘Endless Love’ and it’s a novel by Scott Spencer..copywrite 1979. The book is about a teenager obsessed and when he is banned from seeing his girlfriend for 30 days, he sets fire to her house…not necessarily in retaliation; but, he wanted to save her from the fire and be a hero to the family. There is so much more to this book..placed in a time of sexual awareness and drugs, as well as, family openness.
It resonates with me because I have been in both positions in past relationships. I have been the obsessive one who begged and pleaded for my lover not to leave me and I have also been the one obsessed over to the point of being stalked and having to get away where they couldn’t locate me.
Back to the book: I can’t say whether I do or do not recommend this book, as, it would depend on how much you can take…without crossing the Porn line.
Would you be friends with yourself? Have you ever tried to see yourself from anothers perspective?
I am realizing now how much different I was in the past. I was critical and judgemental of others. I was also a Fixer, wanting to fix relationships and lifestyles that people didn’t want fixed or weren’t my business.
I don’t have a lot of friends, although, that is also because of my health. My first husband even left because I was “sick to much.”
I believe I have changed a lot, especially during this Pandemic. I have been getting closer to God and learning how he wants me to live. So to answer my own question, I would be friends with me. At least enough to check in and make sure I was okay, from time to time.
What about you? Would you be friends with yourself?
We hardly had anyone show up for the Moving Sale, yet, most everyone that did, bought something. A neighbor and another couple practically bought out the furniture and quite a few knickknacks; but, there is quite a bit, left…which J. is probably going to throw away. I am going to bag up what I can and drive to Goodwill this week to donate it. J. has health issues but, overplayed the helplessness crap; which was annoying. She also bitched when people needed boxes to take stuff and was not consistent on prices, at all. C. got very upset when J. accused her of cheating her out of money.
There was some good, though..other then the stuff she did sell. I got to meet a girl in my Bible Study whom I had only met on Zoom, and another, local friend showed up, as well.
Truthfully, with Covid19 and it being a 3 day weekend, it was a terrible time for a Yard Sale and I think only about 15 people showed up. Needless to say, everyone is pretty much sore and tired now so, it is a day of rest and maybe not even getting dressed day, for all involved. At our own places, of course.
*Follower Reminder: If you don’t have a Profile Picture, or you are a business, which I am not interested in, I Will Delete You from Following this blog. Thank You.
The Positive: Of those 5 people, everyone bought something. The new neighbors bought a lot of her furniture including the extra bedroom set, living room set and dining table set. Also, my friend from Bible Study showed up so I got to meet her in person!
The Negative: 5 people during the entire day. Are people not coming because of Covid and money priorities? Or, is it because of the long weekend, or is it a Vegas thing? Truthfully, I think it’s more due the timing and environment, right mow.
Needless to say, C. says she will never do another one. But, I don’t know. I enjoy Yard Sales, usually. I think life needs to get back to normal so people feel a little more secure with steady and excess income.
I am not setting my alarm for tomorrow. I think I need to let my body wake me up to help prevent Migraines like I had today.
