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.

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.

Mortgage News, etc..

Woke up early this morning after playing games on my phone til 2:15, and was surprisingly full of energy. I got back to working on my Boundaries Workbook .. which needs to become a habit, again… and even worked out, as I colored my hair.

The same color..just darker again

Two friends have updated their hair color, lately; so, I figured it must be time.

My Mortgage Girl got in touch and my credit only needs to go up 2 points in order to be approved for a loan! Plus, the loan will be approved for more than the other girl said, so I will have more options open to me.

One question though for any of you Real Estate people out there: If I get approved for a specific amount, that does not mean I have to spend that whole amount, does it? Example, If I get approved for $100k, can I still choose a place for $70k? I don’t want to have to go really high just because I was approved. The mortgage girl said.. Let’s call her “MG”..that different banks approve different amounts and some won’t go lower. What exactly does this mean? Sorry, just realized that was two questions.

Anyway, I am excited because it looks like I might be out of here before the space rent goes up in October, which is my goal.

Also, and this might sound dumb, but, with Puma gone, my cats and I are ready for a new start. I still miss her hanging out by her… okay, she thought it was hers…wall heater.

A Rant

This is a Rant because I need to vent!

My Sister who I am NOT speaking to or is not speaking to me… whatever…gave my new phone number to an Ex-Friend that I want nothing to do with! She knows this and probably gave her my number to simply Piss Me Off! Well, it worked. However, upon receiving the text from Ex-Friend stating she wants to talk to me, I simply responded with, “I am really not interested.” and that ended that. Her numbers have been Blocked.

As for my Sis, I am NOT going to confront her.. although, I would damn well like to… for giving out my number… especially to Ex-Friend… without my permission; unless She contacts me! I am sure if she does; it will be to call me Unchristian..blah..blah..blah..but,

I do not want Toxic people in my life.

Sick Day & Others Beliefs

Has anyone heard of ‘Landmark’? I don’t know if I would call it a Personal Journey, A Religion or A Cult, but, I have a friend involved, so I did some research….(if this person is reading this; I am in no way trying to offend you..these are just my thoughts.).. Upon doing a few hours of research, one thing I learned is that this stems from Scientology which I will not get involved in. I have no problem with my friend being involved… except I do believe it may not end well… and will be there for her, in case…but..I prefer to keep my beliefs and not get involved. However, I do wonder if you have ever heard of anyone or if you, yourselves, experienced Landmark, and what you think?

On another note, Twas a sick Day, today….I really wanted to use the word, “Twas”.. Don’t Ask! Woke up dizzy, stomach pain and diarrhea. Didn’t start feeling better until after an hour and a half nap. I did eat a little. I am praying it’s nothing and I will be back to my usual, energetic self, in the morning.

But, as I was wiping down walls, earlier; I was condemning myself for not doing so, more often. They are really dusty and furry.. it’s no wonder, I don’t get sick, all the time.

Don’t worry, I have berated myself enough, so you don’t need to join in.

Thoughts Verses Action

Woke up this morning with thoughts of things I need to start doing daily, again…like studying my Boundaries and my Bible, as well as set exercise. 

I got one of two accomplished.  While, I did not partake in my half hour exercises like I need to get back to; I did move the refrigerator to clean behind it, so that should count for something.  I did spend a lot of time studying Gods word, today, as well as, talking to a friend from Bible Study on the phone about it. 

On another note, did you hear about the lady and her brother that were attacked and killed during a Zoom call, in California?  I don’t know if it was her son but it was a relative and he is in custody.  Apparently, the woman was on the Zoom call and heard a commotion..the son or whoever was dragging her brother out of the house and stabbing him.  By the time the police got there, she had been stabbed to death too.  But, can you just imagine being part of that Zoom call as a spectator?  Even if you didn’t see anything, I am sure you would hear the commotion. 

This world is out of control. I am interested to learn the motive, though.

Normalcy For Me

It is a beautiful day, today and I feel back to semi-normal. I think a lot of my headaches as of late could be attributed to getting rid of my car. While I have been focusing on buying a few fun items, as well as necessities..like food, and having it all delivered. My brain is still having a hard time adjusting. It didn’t help that the stupid delivery girl couldn’t find my house today and wanted me to walk to the clubhouse before finally asking the manager how to get here.

Anyway, since we have finished with Daniel, I am back to working on my Boundaries Workbook, which keeps me on track and in the right frame of mind.

In other news, I took up smoking again.

HA! Don’t worry, they are the only things I’ll smoke….Dad died of Emphysema so .. I do remember why I quit smoking these, though. Why the hell are they made with Beef Gelatin? I won’t even get into what Gelatin is made of. But hey, I’ve got them now and sometimes it’s okay to eat crap.

Rain And Pain

Our predicted rain is right on schedule, but, not really a storm, yet…at least,not where I live.

Woke up with a Migraine that refuses to go away and is more then intense! I usually only need 50 mg (or whatever) of Imatrex, but today, it is taking 100..or an entire pill. It’s okay, though…it just means lots of sleep and is still better then a hospital visit.

Don’t know if I mentioned, but, we finished studying. ‘Boundaries’ in my Bible Study and are moving on to Daniel; which, I am going to lead. I am excited as, this really gives me teaching practice, for when I get ready to lead my own study via Zoom, as well as, keeping me confident for when I return to teaching at church.

Gloomy Most Of Day & Humor

Las Vegas is starting to feel colder temps and we had some rain and wind, last night. My day started off sinusy and..since I wasn’t planning on going out, I pretty much stayed in my pajamas again.

We finished our study of the book ; ‘Boundaries’ which I got to lead. In truth, Boundaries are never quite finished once you learn them. Anyway, our next book will be back to the Bible. We will be studying the book of ‘Daniel’ and I will lead that study, also..in order to give Lar a break.

I am considering volunteering for a Hot Line position for church or for a crisis. I love talking to people, but, I have discovered it’s easier for strangers to call me. To bad I can’t find a paying, work from home job like that

A question for you Humor bloggers out there: Does your Humor come naturally when writing your posts, or is it forced? I have tried writing, humorously; but a lot of times it comes off as sarcasm, puns, and wondering if I try to hard.

Tomorrow is my day of rest from Blogging, so I wish you all a good one!

Pet Empathy & Friends With Boundaries

Tazzy, the neighbors black and white cat, has already been adopted! But, it just kills me knowing Princess is in a cage..I don’t care if they call it a Cat Condo. Can you imagine suddenly being pushed out of your house and family to a stranger, then have a physical, before being put in some place in your own room with bars on the doors and people coming by debating on if they want you? Yeah, I know..it’s a bit like a Foster home..but, animals don’t understand and it’s killing me. Seriously, I want to cry for Princess and am praying she gets adopted really soon.

In other news, my BFF called and she has the same ‘Boundaries’ book I keep talking about. She is excited to read it so we can discuss it. Plus, I gave a copy to another friend for Christmas to help her with some issues. This book has been a life-changer for me and has even helped to lessen my Migraines.
