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.

Dull Day

The weather was blah and so was I.

Had a long talk with my Realtor. There is seriously Nothing out there in my price range! However, the eviction ban is lifting starting tomorrow, I believe..so…

Something may open next week in the park where Cin lives for under $500. It would be super small, but better than a hotel, for a while. I am also considering an apartment for a year or so..but, even those are super high!

I know I said I wasn’t going to stress. But, I am Human so I do, anyway.

Also finished a book today and had a Migraine. Figured I would get one after reading like 3 hours straight. Maybe, I will do a review on it, sometime. It was really good.

Slow Sunday

In actuality, the entire weekend was slow and I didn’t accomplish much. 

But, I definitely accomplished eating!  MyFitnessPalApp told me if I ate the way I did yesterday, for the next 5 days; I can gain 20 pounds!  Well, isn’t that a lovely reminder to get off my butt and move.  No, MyFitnessPal App didn’t actually talk, it wrote those words in the summary.

I didn’t even listen to church, yesterday..so will definitely do that today. I have been listening to James White who is a powerful Christian debater who defends Christianity from a biblical perspective: and, his views on Catholicism and Homosexuality, among others, on Sermon Central.

I did have a long chat with my BFF and caught up with my friend in Texas, though.

We had a little bit of rain yesterday though not enough to fill our lake. And, I believe there is a 46 percent chance of rain, today.

Happy Monday!

The Heat Is On

The hottest temperature on record for Nevada was 124 f on June 29, 1994. I can’t imagine! The hottest in Las Vegas was 118.2 f on July 24, 1842, I believe and we have come close lately, matching records of 117 f. The heat is not the worst aspect; the humidity has been really high!

One thing I have learned from this is, I don’t care how much money you have, you don’t need a personal sauna; if you crave that, just step outside for a few.

When it gets hot like this, a few songs come to mind. They are old songs and I don’t remember the bands, but here are the titles:

Some Like It Hot
The Heat Is On Hot Blooded Hot, Hot, Hot

Can you think of any songs with the word “Hot” in the title?

More Rain 🌧️

While not enough to cause a dent, at least it’s here. It’s enough to get my windows and parts of the ground wet. Plus, I saw lightening in the distance, too.

Nothing really exciting, today. Went for my walk to the mailbox since it was a bit cooler than usual. Plus, checked on my neighbor since a police car was in front of her house, yesterday….Turns out, her neighbors fight a lot so they were there for that. Not her house, after all.

Visited with TR who I haven’t seen in a while…Cleaned the back room, caught up with phone calls, did some reading and tv…the usual..

And ending my day with this report to you.

Hope your day was good.

Healthy Or Sick

Today was bad. I had a Sinus Headache from Hell and slept most of the day. Ordered some Zyrtec online which should be delivered any time now. I sure hope so. I Need to get to the store, tomorrow!

I used to get Sinus Infections all the time, but, it’s rare I get them, now. Actually, it’s pretty rare I get sick much at all now… except Migraines, which isn’t really considered sick… since I don’t experience a lot of stress, anymore. Learning about and applying Boundaries has been amazing for me!

I am considering trying Botox or something again for my Migraines. I think I only tried that once or twice and that was a long time ago, yet, it’s almost a lost cause as, I feel as if I have tried almost everything and there is no cure. I would think since the stress is better; the frequency would be too, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I get about 14 per month. A really good month is single digits!

We got more rain today with thunder, which was nice. Still probably not enough to help our drought, but it was pleasant to watch come down.

My Day Was Arbitrary

Today was Matching for Arbitrary Day on Reddit Gifts Secret Santa Exchanges.  Arbitrary Day is like the regular Secret Santa, but mid-year.  I am really excited at who I got this time, as, she was super easy to buy for!  She is 19, studying to become a teacher, likes Hello Kitty and has 5 cats.  Plus, she and her boyfriend are going to be getting married and moving, soon.  I found some really cool stuff from Hot Topic that I think she will love!  My info was also pulled, already!  Over 8,000 people signed up for this one… probably because it is the last year… and most seem really excited about following through!

I am feeling a bit better, today, although I am still a little hoarse and at one point, my ear rang…No, I didn’t answer it! I pretty much took it easy and didn’t clean, either.

We had like 2 minutes of rain, here; which sounded and smelled nice, but really didn’t help our water shortage.

Thanks, New Day & Favor

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.

Blaming The Heat?

I almost forgot to Post tonight. Maybe the heat is getting to me. Lol. In truth, though, it is 111 F right now at 10 p.m. You won’t hear me complain about it much, though because that is one of the reasons I moved to Las Vegas in the first place!

Here’s a quick, music question for you:

Name a song that you were hearing/singing the wrong lyrics until someone corrected you.

Please don’t say ‘Blinded By The Light’s unless it’s the only one you can remember.

Mine is titled; ‘Oxygen’. The actual lyrics are, “Love is like Oxygen, You get to much, you get to high…’. For years, I thought it said, “Love is like Hotsy Plunge..”. I was like what the heck is a Hotsy Plunge?

Looking forward to hearing your misheard lyrics in the comments.

* I would also love to hear your definitions of a Hotsy Plunge. HA

Weather Drop

Mother Nature is off her meds again!  A cold wind hit last night and the weather dropped like 10+ degree’s.  I didn’t even go anywhere, today.  Just watched the wind, turned on the heater and drank lots of coffee.  Sudden weather changes can be very annoying for Migraine sufferers like me. 

Had a conversations with my BFF.   She is excited for Arbitrary Day next month on Reddit Secret Santa.  It’s a lot like the big exchange in November except less people participate so they put more effort…well, most do… into the gift giving.  Since my BFF is completely obsessed, she is really hoping to get stuff  Brendan Fraser related.  Which reminds me, I wrote the other day to his PR Department to see if I can get her an autographed picture of him to add with a Christmas thing I am putting together for her.  It’s never to early to start planning.
