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.

Good luck!

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.

Don Henley – The Heart Of The Matter Lyrics – video Dailymotion

The Confusing Middle has given us the word, ‘Forgiveness’ as this week’s Prompt. Before I get into this:. Why don’t you go visit the site? It’s really cool and thought provoking….I’ll Wait…

Twiddling my thumbs…do do do do, do do do, do do do do,..do,.. do do do do do, thinking weird thoughts, hmmm..do I have time to o…Oh, You’re back? Great! Hope you are a new Follower for them, now.

Okay, So the first song I think of when thinking of Forgiveness is the one above.

But, Forgiveness does not have to be romantic. God say to forgive others 70 x 7, I believe…I could be mistaken. I know there are a lot of 7’s….

Anyway, Forgiveness does not mean forgetting or that the hurt is gone. Emotional and even physical healing takes time. It doesn’t mean you have to let those people back in your life, either. Forgiveness means you can keep going through life without the hardness in your heart or your need for revenge. It means learning about and setting up Boundaries that you decide and will accept.

So, there’s my post on Forgiveness, and if you didn’t like it, Forgive Me for wasting your time.

Cleaning Motivation

After talking to my BFF on Sunday, I finally finished mopping the floor, yesterday. BFF is a bit of a Hoarder and a slob…. this is not to be offensive. It is a basic fact….but, she was trying to get organized, as, her 17 year old son just got his room together and even painted his dresser in the Avengers theme. Anyway, her sending me before and during photos motivated me to finish the floor. I am encouraging her to continue. Her place could look really cute if she took pride in her belongings and collections, plus, it might even help her children who have picked up her bad Un-Cleaning habits.

Remember K? the one that acts like she is better than me, almost ruined my Donny Osmond Concert, and showed her true colors? Well, I have blocked her numbers so she tried to reach me via Facebook Friend Request. She has told me before that she rarely uses Facebook except for family! The girl drives Uber; if she really wants to reach me, she knows where I live…But, truthfully, I rather enjoy being drama free and don’t want to start that again. I may level her with truth, if she shows up. We obviously have nothing in common and need to let the friendship go.

Sinusy Me

It’s a Sinus Day. I see sleep in the near future.

I was kidding with a friend (Julestx51) because she was like this yesterday, and shared on WordPress. Thanks again. HA!

It’s Monsoon Season here and yesterday on the news, it said Nevada will be having another water shortage soon because the lake is so low; on the flip side, the weather said to expect Thunder Storms all week. Last I checked, most Thunder Storms bring rain, so can we say “Contradictory”?

WordPress App

I missed yesterday because the stupid App is not working on my phone. I don’t know why or how to get it back. Finally figured out how to get in, this way.

Today was a good day since I got paid. Cin took me on some errands and we went gambling and I won enough to pay her back. We help each other out, and I had a minor Tab running, so to speak.

Well, it took so long to get back on that I am really not sure what to write about. I guess I have already covered my annoyance at losing this. Hopefully, I can keep this page on my main screen or something.
