Self Friends

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?

Over, Thankfully

It’s been a long week and an even longer weekend.

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.

Empty Yard Sale

We had 5 people and two drive-bys.

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.

Another Helping Day, Etc..

Went to J’s to help with Moving Sale.  Made signs and cut paper for pricing.  Don’t ask me pricing suggestions if you don’t want to hear them!  Got a Migraine after getting high from the pen I was using so came home and went down with Imatrex after lunch and listing the sale on 3 free sites.   The Moving Sale is at Boulder & Sahara in Las Vegas this Sat & Sunday from 8-5. Follow the orange signs. Please share. It’s a whole household of stuff.

C. and I are thinking J. is not going to be gone in time.  She is waiting til the last minute on most everything; like she wants everyone else to do everything.  We have our own lives and are helping as much as we can.

MetroPCS is messed up. They took my payment before my due date causing bank late fee’s. When I called, they said they can take the payment 5 days early. That’s Wrong! It’s on Autopay! They changed my due date and are supposedly passing my complaint to a Manager.

Lastly, called USPS about a package sent to my BFF on 12/9 that has still not been received. Same shit..”In transit. Arriving late.” When you hit the option to speak with someone, they want you to wait an hour but preface that with “Our representatives have no different information.” There needs to be better ways to mail stuff. This is ridiculous.

Workin On The Weekend

Yesterday was spent helping J. pack and get ready for the Moving Sale…after picking up a prescription and getting some groceries. It’s amazing how much she has not done when she has been planning to move since October.

Unfortunately, J. has Hoarder characteristics mixed with Orderliness. It takes her 20 minutes to go through a stack of washcloths to figure out what to keep. Then, things have to be packed just so or all like things put together for the sale. It can try your patience.

I am not going back there until tomorrow; choosing not to get dressed or go out, today. I hurt my foot on her rock pathway and need to rest it.

In other news, referring to my post; ‘Lost A Follower’. One of her friends or followers think they can come on my blog with their thoughts to defend her then accused me of not accepting Free Speech because I deleted it. The difference is that I followed her because I liked her blog. I didn’t go to her site just to comment over something that I witnessed. Plus, I really don’t care about his, her or their opinions. She told me to Go Away so they can do the same.

I would make this blog Private, but then I wouldn’t get any new Followers.

Lost A Blog Followed

I usually take Sunday off from blogging but guess what happened?

As the title states, I had to stop Following a blog site.  Why?  Because I support President Trump! 

Apparently, the blog author and her Followers do not and you aren’t allowed to have a different political stance.  She outright told me if I was a “Trumpet” to “Go Away”!  This type of thing is why people cannot live harmoniously! 

It’s a flipping blog!  People come from all life paths to read it.  If you can’t even comment to strangers, how do they think we are all going to live peacefully in person? 

She got pissed after I informed her that technically and legally Biden is not our President until the 20th.  He is President-Elect.

  I still hold onto hope that anything can happen in the meantime…probably won’t..but, it can.

Political Thoughts

If you have been Following for a while, you know how I feel about President Trump.  You also know that I believe it was a fraudulent election.  I do not believe for one minute that President Trump instigated the protesters to storm the White House.  The Protest should have stayed civil and peaceful.  That being said, I believe there is not a chance in Hell for President Trump to recover from this.  As a matter of fact, I just received notice that he is willing to make a peaceful transition.  I feel very, very sorry for him.  At the end, even his partner, Vice-President Pence, turned against him.  Pence really did not want to recount the votes, in the first place! So, while I am not happy with the results; Biden will be our President, in a few days. I cannot allow this political shift to depress me as, it’s beyond my control.

*If you wish to comment on the above, please keep it respectful and no profanity. These are simply my thoughts and I refuse to get into political debates.

Health wise, I think I am doing a bit better. Still headachy and a sore throat. Feel as if all I do is sleep plus, wake up to eat before sleeping some more. I should kick this, soon.

J. sold her house. She is probably having one more Yard Sale before she moves away.

Moodyness

Is that a word? It is now.

It’s still the 1st as I write this to post, tomorrow. In a weird mood today and its not necessarily a good one.

No Stimulus Check yet so no money to refill my AntiDepression Med. Although, will probably take one of the last two, now. The blinds literally broke from the wall over the sink and the Superglue was old so didn’t work. Hung up old kitchen towels, in the meantime, but of course..won’t block out all the light. Not happy going down Memory Lane and seriously feel like crying for no real reason. Yeah, Depression does this! Plus, am tired and headachy, but don’t want to go to sleep, to early.

So, that’s my start to a New Year. I won’t really get into my political views except to say, depressed over that, too. President Trump reminds me so much of my own father. Truthfully, I think it’s terrible the way he has been treated, especially in the last year. And to be honest, I don’t trust Biden with anything!! You don’t have to agree with me. I don’t care. I just need to get these feelings out.

Yes, I know God has it under control and I need to simply trust him. But, I also deserve a day to feel my negative, depressing thoughts, and that’s today.

Hopefully, I will feel better when I hit Post for this, tomorrow.

Gonna take my AntiDepression Med now.

*My meds kicked in last night so the mental madnesz stopped. Major Migraine now, though so going back down with Imatrex.

Moral: Take Your Meds As Directed!

Movie Review…The Juror

Today I watched an old movie with Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore titled The Juror….I keep wanting to write the name Ben Affleck instead of Alec Baldwin. but, that’s just me and I digress….Anyway, this was an old movie.. J. mainly has old movies and I have to watch one more that I borrowed before she packs them up….Anyway, I did not like this one. The back of the box made it sound chilling and a bit suspenseful but the suspense was at a minimum.

A woman on a jury of a murder trial gets her and her sons life threatened if she doesn’t convince the jury to set the accused free. The one who is threatening…well, I won’t say anymore just in case.

Just because I didn’t like it doesn’t mean you won’t.

Scary Night

Last night, a helicopter or two were flying around shining their lights in my windows and lighting up the cul-de-sac. This went on for over half hour. It was totally freaky and I couldn’t find anything out about the reason for it. Needless to say, I had a rough time going to sleep but I finally did; and slept til 10:58 a.m!

I think part of sleeping so long is my new mattress. J. was getting rid of a mattress which has barely been used and mine had seen better days. I wasn’t sure I would like it what with its level of firmness, but, I have been sleeping solid so….

I would say Christmas is over but it doesn’t feel like it when gifts continue to arrive. Plus, the Stimulus Check has been approved so that can be considered a gift, in a way.

*That’s all I am saying on that as, not getting into politics.
