Sharing Saturday

Hello Class,

For those who are new. This is the part of my Blog where I share what I have learned or relearned this week and you all can participate in the comments. You can share about Anything. I don’t grade harshly but I do encourage participation.

That being said:

You definitely need to stay on top of your own medical issues. You cannot depend on doctors or staff to give you needed information. I need to find a way to get to the doctor on Monday to pick up my Jury Summons Dismissal Notice and fax it to the court. Then, I will need to call on Tuesday and explain the situation. Nobody told me I had to pick it up from the doctor after dropping it off..not even a reminder call and it has been there since the first. The doctors office does not fax, call or mail things for patients.

It’s good to be grateful for little things in life like flushing toilets, actual toilet paper, privacy, having your little family together (me and cats), being able to afford a portable Heater (my other one doesn’t work) and having a roof over my head.

What & Why I Watch

Ever since my BFF made a weird comment, I’ve been analyzing my interests and why I watch what I do.

I am interested in Cooking Shows because I like the creativity and competition. They encourage me to try new things. Plus, Worst Cooks In America makes me feel like a Pro. I like True Crime and Serial Killer documentaries because I was in an abusive relationship and don’t ever want to do that again…it was mental, but still abusive…., plus, it’s amazing how long it takes to catch these people. I like true stories about Polygamy, Cult Survivors, Homelessness and Weight Loss because I have never lived those situations

And lastly, I like shows and documentaries about Hoarding and Hoarders because I have had and have friends that are. I am learning how people think and process, as well as, how to be around them in their environments for long periods of time, also, as how to support them and help to encourage a healthier lifestyle. I don’t understand how so many Hoarders go from clutter to becoming slobs or why they don’t have pride in the items they possess. I mean, if you want to save it, wouldn’t you want whatever it is to be accessible and seen verses on the floor in a pile?

I collect certain dolls and knick-knacks. They are packed in boxes now for a future move but they are usually kept in a China Cabinet where I can see them and they can’t get ruined. I grew up in a very clean home. Heck, we had a Living Room we were rarely allowed to go in and two chairs in that room were antique and we were rarely allowed to use them. My BFF on the other hand, had the complete opposite upbringing and the smell from dirty dishes penetrated the environment. She is now a mother of 5 and I think two of the 5 have gone the clean route, one to the extreme, one is just like her or worse and the other two I can’t tell yet because they still live at home.

Anyway, I think I watch a lot of shows to learn and keep my brain cells firing, as I age.

Missed A Few

I don’t know how much time I’ve missed blogging but in my defense, I’ve been sick. Had a terrible sore throat sinus thing for the last 2-3 days and Migraines 4 out of 5 days. Yesterday, after taking my Imatrex, I slept 7 hours. Of course, that threw my night off a bit.

Anyway, aside from that; not to much new. I did get to lead our Bible Study on our Boundaries book today, which was really cool, as I am hoping to teach a class on it in the future.

Fishing For Info

Yesterday I talked to FS. She was fishing to see if I am still blogging. I mentioned “I don’t have the blog anymore”. meaning my old one and she goes, “So, you don’t blog at all?” I just repeated myself and changed the subject. It’s none of her business.

Only two people know I have this, but, don’t have access.

My last blog caused an extreme rift between my sister and I because she decided to spy. I refuse to let that happen again. I don’t know if it’s because I am the youngest but it’s like my family doesn’t want me to have my own thoughts and opinions. It’s stupid that I have to hide things for my own privacy. But, it’s my life
