Tired Tonight

This was written on Nov 24th.. Forgot to Post.

What a day! Handyman was supposed to arrive at 9 and did not come until after noon, the circuit breaker had issues, fell off Cin’s porch by missing as step, and ended with a weird scammy Group text.

Will try to touch base tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving 2021

Well, it’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and I made it a day of rest.

I am sore from all the work I’ve been doing and didn’t even bother getting dressed. I did get a Migraine this afternoon, but, it’s okay.

I am Thankful for our Freedoms.

The Freedom to believe what we want.

The Freedom to live where we can that’s affordable.

The Freedom to have pets, have enough food, say or write what we feel without worrying about our lives being taken. The Freedom to eat and drink what and when we want.

I am very Thankful for this blog community, as well.

Hope your Thanksgiving was blessed.

Working Weekend?

My house has arrived!

However, a Handyman might not. The one who responded is way to expensive. Can anyone recommend a low cost Handyman in the Las Vegas/Henderson area? Cin and I are going to see what we can do, by ourselves so… this should prove Interesting. I only have a little over a week left to get my babies back on the 30th.

Just finished watching 20/20 about the Turpin Family. For those that don’t know, 12 children were living in isolation, filth and abuse from their parents. It was quite interesting and a bit sad. The government didn’t help much even after they were free’d.

1. Not sure about 5, but…

5. Let’s go with Snickers or Tootsie Rolls

Chapter Two- Don’t Run Back Into The House Or Barn..You are safer behind a tree.

Chapter Three- Stay Downstairs..If you do go upstairs, Don’t look out the window. The Killer is probably hanging are better off downstairs with easy exits.

Chapter Four- Stay Out Of Nearby Cars.. unless you know how to hotwire them.

Chapter Five- Stop Screaming!.. You just draw attention to yourself. Try to escape silently.

3. Good Question. Probably an Alien Fuggler of some sort.

4. The only social media I use is WordPress and I share most everything so, this doesn’t really apply.

5. I have always wanted to blindfold someone and place their hands in cold cooked Spaghetti…WORMS!

6. Depends on the costume. I love dressing up and like to stay in costume all day on Halloween without the face makeup.

7. Wifi Board, Fortune Telling stuff. Halloween should be fun, not seriously inviting evil spirits into our world.

Not Doing Things Today

I didn’t do anything I meant to, today.. like paperwork. But I did talk to and decide to try a different Realtor. I swear, these Realtors all start out gung ho and happy, then they fade into oblivion when they can’t find anything. Luckily, per Nevada law, I can switch as much as I want as long as I don’t sign anything, officially.

Watched some 9/11 shows since the 20th Anniversary is tomorrow. I do this every year as a reminder of something I will really never forget.

My Puma would have been 17 years old, today.

I miss my beautiful, Bengal (“Bear Cub)

The other day, I accomplished this!

My Ex’s Graffiti Tag was on it. So, I covered it up. He actually painted it originally, which is okay.

Lastly, we got some Monsoon Rain which was nice. Probably didn’t help our drought much and definitely didn’t cool us off, but better than nothing.

When I was 6, I was on a television show titled, ‘Juvenile Jury’. I even have a copy of one of the episodes I was on from Sony Studios.

As for Celebrity encounters, Clint Eastwood came to my work and I have a picture with him, and I believe Michael Phelps also visited. While on a cruise to Mexico, Mr. Whipple from the Charmin commercial was on the cruise. While I didn’t meet him due to seasickness; he gave me a card and a picture of his family with his real name and “Please don’t squeeze the Charmin!”. The last celebrity would be Donny Osmond, my childhood dream, who I met a few years ago after their show here in Vegas.. before it closed. Don’t ask me what I babbled about. I think I was in shock!

Not Phone Fun +

Cin and I are getting tired of updating our phones but..the previous phones barely worked. The reception was terrible with pretty much text only going through. So, we went back to Cricket who gave us each a Motorola Power instead. It’s nice, it’s a well-known brand and…it works!

Other than that, let me tell you about the book deal I got at Smiths today… Kroger, for some of you. While waiting for my prescription, I was perusing the books and saw a few with stickers reading ‘List Price $1.99’ so I picked one up. The register rang it up as $7.99 so the girl got the Manager. The Manager said she had never seen that sticker before, but they sold it to me for the sticker price of $1.99! Truthfully, I think an employee may have screwed up when marking some of the books, but, I am definitely not complaining.

My Responses:

The Toilet Paper should always be over, plus, in a cabinet so my cats don’t mess with it. They can be quite artistic, in that aspect.

And as for French Fries, I don’t really like Fast Food Fries. Though, my favorite is Del Taco, which I grew up on.

I am more of a True Crime buff and only read certain types of Fiction.

I am Not a morning person so I mostly choose Stay Up Late!

Also, just to clarify: My blog is actually Midlife Cat Lady and I go by Venus. I don’t think the title of Cats And Coffee will link.

I do not like Sports and never have. Being short, I have been hit in the head with a Tetherball and Basketball. I do like playing Badminton, but, that isn’t really popular, here. Plus, I have never had the strength to really participate in most sports. I don’t mind Baseball/Softball so much when it comes to batting, but since I run slow, I need a Runner.
