I know feelings fluctuate, but, I woke up believing this is going to be my week…housewise. I just have a feeling, it really might go through, this time. Please don’t comment, as, I don’t want to jinx it. You know I will keep you updated.
My new mattress arrived over the weekend and it is amazing! I got a Memory Foam during the Labor Day Sale at Mattress Firm. Now, I am just hoping my Memory Foam pillow arrives soon from Fingerhut. It’s soft on one side and firm on the other. With my Migraines, I am really hoping this helps.
I know I got a mattress from the neighbor in approximately January when she moved, but that one was used and one side literally slid like I was going to fall off the bed, so I totally needed this one! And a good mattress is a definite investment.
I Finally got to see the Friends Reunion and it left me a bit emotional. I have never been much of a tv watcher, preferring to read a book, but a few shows really resonated with me
The Brady Bunch was like my family…well, the one I really wanted. My siblings and I are years apart so I didn’t have a lot of people to play with and my Foster Sister was the complete opposite of me, and didn’t stay long.
Then, there was Seinfeld. The conversations and things they pondered were very interesting, and taught me to see the world in a different light.
Friends was incredible! I remember wishing I had friends like that and being able to see myself and a few of my friends, in some of the characters. Friends was one of those shows that I had a hard time when it ended.
What are 3 shows that made a difference to your life and why?
The Prompt per The Confusing Middle this week is the word, ‘Pirate’. He posts a word every week to write about. I suggest you check out the site…After you read this…I don’t have all night to wait, you know… Anyway, so this week’s word is Pirate because I believe ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day” is coming up. Personally, that’s not my thing. Plus, how can we still have that when they won’t even make ‘Peter Pan’ anymore?.. probably due to Pirate violence. Now, give me ‘Talk Like A Valley Girl Day’ or ‘Talk In Pig-Latin Day’ and I would be totally into those! Heck, I talk Valley Girl pretty much anyway since I am from California. I never actually lived in The Valley but the lingo is still here. Technically, I think Las Vegas is a Valley, I mean, we are surrounded by Mountains.
Don’t know if I mentioned but my Park Manager is Racist. She does not like people who don’t speak English and is apparently rude to them, plus, comments behind their backs to others. This better not cause a problem for the people buying my house! They don’t speak much English. But, they do already have a place here, so I am hoping that will help them get approved.
Started a Migraine last night which went all night and didn’t quit until this afternoon after a 2nd Imatrex. Luckily, I take Imatrex by halves so it only equalled one actual pill. It was horrible though, and not only on the opposite side of my head then usual but was mainly by my eye.
Oh well, I survived and am living to tell about it.
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.
It’s been really weird. I have been lethargic, like total lack of energy with headaches and nausea. I slept like forever! On and off since around 5 last night until 8 this morning. Add a Migraine to that around 9:30 last night. I am still not myself, yet..but need to try to fight this. I don’t believe it’s COVID and am not going to the doctor unless it continues for a few more days.
CDC has a COVID Tracer which I installed on my phone, but it’s a bit stupid because it traces by zip code. Zip codes cover large areas; wouldn’t that just make people nervous if there was a case? I am probably going to uninstall that app in a few.
My new Realtor never called yesterday, like she said she would and I made myself stay awake for that! I am going to call the office, today. I need to know the next step. I have a For Sale sign ready, but not sure when to set it up. Or, if I would do better with a Realtor. What is it about businesses and their employees lack of communication?
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.
A friend I Follow at The Confusing Middle….theconfusingmiddle.com…posts prompts every Wednesday and this week is “Independence”. If you haven’t checked out that blog, I highly recommend it. But Go After you read this! After all, I sent you there. That should mean something!
Okay, Now for my thoughts:
Independence Day aka (also known as.. for all you non-English people out there) is the day America celebrates it’s Independence! While I love the idea of the celebration and some of the things we do to celebrate it.. Potlucks,Parades, Festivals and even Store Sales..the one thing I don’t like is the fireworks! There are a few reasons I don’t like them. They’re noisy.. which makes my cats hide and there is no escaping a Migraine attack, But, the main reason is, they are dangerous. I fear fire. If a roof in the park catches fire, it will spread quickly plus, not a year goes by without some idiot burning a finger off, or setting an animal on fire. People go crazy with their “celebrating” with some even shooting guns in the air. Remember, what goes up, must come down, somewhere. Fireworks under controlled settings are okay, although, still loud.
I am proud to be an American and to be free to celebrate it, the way I want. I am just not proud of some of our Americans stupidity.
Cin took me out to a few stores. Plus, I felt good about helping a Homeless Man. He was Shakey and had a hard time walking to the car but I watched him open the bag and immediately drink the water, I’d included. I bought lemon, sparkling water just to put in the Homeless bags.
I’m sure by now, most of you heard about what happened in Florida. Can you imagine? Truthfully, I have a weird feeling it is Terrorist related especially when most everyone there was Jewish. Plus, even the Mayor said, the Inspector had been there the day before and other buildings older than that, haven’t collapsed. My heart and prayers go out to all affected.
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.
