When Helping Makes Me Sad

Cin likes to help people, as do I; so upon leaving the grocery store,we saw a man struggling with bags of groceries. Cin drove over and asked him if he needed a ride, for which he was grateful. While going to his place, we got to talking about how he is a Christian and helps his neighbors, so I donated my current Homeless Bag to him to help. I offered to help carry his bags to his apartment, which was really close to the car… Here’s where the sad part comes in. … We put the bags in the doorway of an empty, apartment living room full of trash and 2-3 little children sitting in it. It wasn’t trash like animal waste and the children were clothed..but… I feel so sad. Seriously, there was NO furniture! I just wanted to hug them or take them out of there for a while. God knows what the bedroom/s look like. I wonder if they have beds or blankets..or believe or count on Santa Clause at Christmas! On the other hand, I believe they are fed.. what with all the food he got, and their clothes were decent and they have a roof over their heads.

I don’t know the situation but will be adding those, beautiful children onto my prayer list.

Busy Day

Since it’s my Payday (Yes, Disability is still a payment) it was busy.

Started off by paying bills, then to put the Down Payment in the bank; before going to Mattress Firm. My mattress now is fun, but, not comfortable. It bends to one side so you feel like you are going to slide off. Plus, it’s a bit hard..which might be affecting my Migraines. Anyway, Mattress Firm is having a sale and I got a Queen sized Memory Foam Tulo Mattress that is Lavender scented at like half price! Really excited, but am going to wait till I move to use it!

After that, it was lunch at KFC where I met a guy!

He has money as he owns the restaurant chain. But, I think this relationship is short lived because I would have to visit him. He has to monitor the customers and a lot of women come to see him!

After lunch was gambling and I set an amount and did pretty well sticking to it.

Cin has a bit of a problem in that every time we go and get ready to leave, she sees a different machine and goes, “I should really try this one”.; then spends more money, she really shouldn’t. While there, a Migraine started from the smoke in the casino so, I really needed to get home and take my meds.

Stopped to get my mail on the way back..(when I am with someone, I just have them stop, so I don’t have to walk.) and was shocked to find a package in the mail! My Secret Santa from Reddit is still at it and he sent the Purple Sugar Skull Bath Set I wanted!

This picture doesn’t give it credit, but, it’s amazing! Plus, I think there might be one more thing on the way. I think the guy spent like $200.00 on me!

The people who bought the house called this afternoon and are super worried about the Background Check. My manager is asking personal questions that should have nothing to do with their qualifications like, “Why are you buying a trailer when you own a house?”. Who cares? if they have the money to pay the space Rent, let them! Anyway, I understand being nervous but I am not going to panic.

I believe Gods’ got this and whatever happens will be his will. I can’t even set the timing. I just have to pray it all works out.

Solid Sleep & Faith

I seriously slept Solid last night.

What with Whackjob and family gone and selling my house; I feel like I should be stressed about finding a place. But, I truly believe Gods got this! That’s not to say I am not looking. Gonna call Cindy’s Trailer Park Manager again today and/or check into a nearby apartment. I really don’t want to go into a weekly unless I know fer sure, a condo is opening in a few.

Keep the prayers coming, please!

2nd Times The Charm.. Hopefully

Sold Again! This time to a really nice couple who offered a decent price and already handed me a decent sized Deposit. The office is closed today but they are going to contact them tomorrow regarding the Background Check and will keep in touch. They have dogs and cats. They have agreed I can stay at least until the end of the month .

I am praying something opens at the trailer park Cindy lives in, so I will at least have my own place until a condo opens. Plus, I would prefer to keep my little family together, if possible. I might still need to get a storage unit for the Washer/Dryer, Cat Tree, etc.. and will probably get a PO Box until I am settled.

Please pray All works out!

I really believe God is in this!

I am completely done with Facebook and while considering Instagram, I have to wonder Why? My life is not that important that I need to share it all over the place! Things that are important, I can text people or write about on here. Most of my friends aren’t on Facebook much, anyway.. and Instagram will be good if I get into writing, seriously..but I can’t really think of any other good reason.

Crazy Ass Buyers

The lady who is helping…more like Making the guy buy my place…is a Whack Job.

When they came over to pay the rest of the Down Payment, she kept answering for him, not letting him get a word in. I finally said, ” I haven’t heard from him at all!”. I looked at him and said, “Do you like the house?”. She kept saying, it doesn’t matter.”He needs to be on his own.”. Yet, she is the one planning to fix it up. She also stated to me later that if her boyfriend died, she can move here with this guy. Supposedly, the reason she is making this guy move is because he is causing problems between her and her boyfriend. Whatever.

What gets me is they did Nothing today so the process won’t even get started until Tuesday or Wednesday and I am really at a standstill until I know he is approved by the park. Even, if I found a place, I couldn’t jump on it! I really hope he/they? get approved so I can move on.

Oh, and when I asked what she did, she had fun touting how much she does for others and what a wonderful person, she is. Yeah, No conceit, there.

As for the guy? I kinda feel sorry for him. I really don’t think he wants to move anywhere so he drags his feet, hoping her idea will go away.

Unfortunately, as a Seller, this puts me in a really, bad, spot.

Oh well, God blessed me with Patience for a reason, and here is one time, I need to master it.

Oh, More proof she’s crazy and a control freak. Whackjob is not into animals and didn’t give the cats the time of day… despite Susy’s begging for attention.. until Susy jumped on my counter. Then, she picked her up and put her on the floor saying “Get down, Kitty”. I was like, “She’s allowed up there.” and Whackjob said, “Oh, I didn’t know.”. She is lucky I was shocked. What right did she have to touch my cat without my permission? She pretty much crossed the line by picking her up and reprimanding her.

I will be quite glad when this is over and we have all moved on.

A Lot Doing Today

Bad English? Maybe. But, you can’t say the title isn’t catchy.

Talked to some friends, looked up some options, a temporary place might come up in a few weeks as a possibility while I wait for a Condo to open.

Someone’s Failure might mean my move Forward now that Eviction Restrictions are being lifted.

Right now, there is practically Nothing available in my price range or even out of it, for that matter.

The thought crossed my mind of refunding the Hold money and saying Screw It. But, I would never make this much on my house, otherwise, I don’t think and there’s a reason it sold .or is selling…so fast.

I really believe Gods’ Got This and I have to keep patient and trust the process.

Can you share a time when you trusted God and he came through? I would love to hear others experiences.

Crazy News

We interrupt the Sharing Saturday Post to bring you the following NewsFlash!

My house has Sold! Sight unseen.. except for pictures and for more than I asked for!

The person that is paying the Down Payment is buying it for a male friend so he can have his own place and stop living with her and her boyfriend. It’s a bit of a soap opera to be honest, but not my concern. I already have some money to Hold it and will get the rest of the Down Payment next week. Which is also when he is probably going to get park approval. They have agreed to let me stay here for 30 days to find a place.

Please pray God leads us somewhere safe and affordable, soon. I am not overly stressed because I know Gods’ got this,. But a little extra prayers from friends never hurts.

Hope you all are having a good weekend, so far!

The Last Olympic Games

This is the last Olympic based Blogger Game about Paul at The Captain’s Speech. This time, the questions are True Or False about Him. Once again, I encourage you to check out his blog at ‘Captain’s Speech’ and once again, my answers are in Bold:

1. I used to have two pet fish named “Fish E.” and “Binoculars”.
A) True
B) False

2. I got lost in an Olive Garden (the restaurant).
A) True
B) False

3. I found $5 in a book at the public library.
A) True
B) False

4. I was vacuuming the house at Age 3.

B) False

10. I normally eat dinner after 7PM.
A) True
B) False

And now, a few questions from Paul, but I might not answer them all…See what I did there?  They are:


Did you have any pets? Have you ever gotten lost? Have you ever found money? Are you a cleaner? When was the last time you fell? Do you drink coffee? Do have any superstitions? What do you like to write with? What cooked vegetables do you like? When do you eat dinner?

My blogs official name is CatsandCoffee and my blogs title is Midlife Cat Lady so, Yes, I have pets. 3 beautiful cats! I had 4 but lost Puma to Liver Failure last February. I had to throw that in because I still miss her! I have always been an animal person having had Dogs, Cats, Hamsters and Fish growing up! I answered the Coffee question also, this way. I can’t start my day without Coffee. I do go to Starbucks once in a while for my Vanilla Latte with two extra pumps Vanilla, but not to often.

Am I a Cleaner? I’ll take the 5th. Lol. Actually, I do clean but I could probably do better. My mother was like model home level clean and I prefer more the Lived-In Look.

I am very klutzy so I Fall a lot. I don’t remember the last time, though.

No, I am not Superstitious. I believe in God and really think Superstition comes from the other side.

I prefer Pens verses Pencils. Especially, Pens with Purple Ink!

When Do I Eat Dinner? – Well, the good thing about being an Adult and living alone is, I eat when I am hungry. Although, I try not to eat a full meal to late and to cut Caffeine off, early.. unless I am out somewhere super late since Caffeine keeps me awake.

Cooked Vegetables? – I love steamed Cauliflower, Frozen (defrosted and cooked obviously) Peas & Carrots, Corn On The Cob, steamed Artichokes…I could probably go on..but it just makes me hungry.

Anyway, I look forward to more Blogger Games in the future and am looking forward to seeing the final scores after this one.

Saturday Sharing

Things I learned this week.

I answered a question on Reddit about what you believe happens when you die, and was accused of taking the easy way out with Paschal’s Wager.  I didn’t even know what that was!  I just answered with my belief.  And, No, I am not going to share the definition.  You get to look it up.

I also looked up the meaning of the word, ‘Dalliance’ so, you could say I learned that, too.

I also learned that I really don’t want to visit Disneyland much anymore because the Racism crap is getting ridiculous. They are redoing all the rides I grew up with and even took out the song ‘Zippity-Doo-Da’ due to being Racist and having roots from ‘Song-Of-The-South’.

I learned a lot of ways to kill a tree (Don’t Ask).

But, the main thing I learned this week is that Red Hot Candy gives me Migraines. I am pretty sure it’s the red dye because I have no problem with Cinnamon. Red Hots are one of my favorite candies, but after having Migraines for 4 days straight, I have no problem going back to missing out.

What did you all learn?

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.
