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?
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.
Most Writers seem to also be avid Readers so I decided to update you on what I am reading now.
I am still reading ‘The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich’ which is a tough one and cannot be read like a normal, easy, reading book since it is about the War! The chronological events of Hitler’s moves as well as the other countries, and how the war started and ended.
So, having run out of other reading material…as, most is packed…I went to Tra’s and got my ‘Wind In The Willows’ book back to reread, as well as, borrowed another book from her. She just got a few used books from someone else… Anyway, today, I started reading ‘Mark Twain A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur’s Court’.
I know I should be writing more, as, I have stories started, but I am really hoping to have an office space set up to help with that, in the near future. I just can’t seem to focus on it, now.
So, let’s hear your book updates at the moment, if you are Readers as well as Writers.
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.
I was kidding with a friend (Julestx51) because she was like this yesterday, and shared on WordPress. Thanks again. HA!
It’s Monsoon Season here and yesterday on the news, it said Nevada will be having another water shortage soon because the lake is so low; on the flip side, the weather said to expect Thunder Storms all week. Last I checked, most Thunder Storms bring rain, so can we say “Contradictory”?
Today, Cin and I went to Smith’s, an indoor Swap Meet and Smart and Final.
I know I don’t exercise enough because I am really sore! And, if I am sore, I can’t imagine how Cin is feeling; she exercises a lot less than I do despite the fact her doctors say she needs to.
Anyway, I tried on Sandals..to no avail because I need narrow…I have always had a hard time getting shoes and when I was young, my mother took me to the Marine Base for them. What’s interesting is, I can wear children’s sizes if they are narrow enough…but I digress.. ..and had lunch, while at the Swap Meet, plus, I bought some food from Smart and Final to freeze until my GlutenEase gets here, which should be here by Wednesday.
Think Rosemary Sourdough Bread and Hand Made Shrimp Tempura!
Mainly True Crime, Serial Killer stuff but also a few novels, fiction like The Flowers In The Attic series, Survivor Stories and stories that explain how people think or tick.
I borrowed a book from my neighbor, titled ‘The Sociopath Next Door’…and yes, she lives next door! But, I digress . .. The scary thing about this book is; I see a lot of Sociopathic traits in my friend, Tra. Tra says terrible things about people! Example, she put on Facebook that she wishes she had aborted her daughter because her daughter accused her of being a racist, and a few other things. She Hates her sister and says she is dead to her; even laughing when bad things happen to her, She also Hates her neighbor as well as her not yet Ex-Husband and wishes them both dead. She believes if she Hates someone, you should too, or at least have nothing to do with them, and you can’t disagree with her much or you will hear her wrath. She also puts a lot of Whoa is me, my life sucks and no one likes me posts on Facebook which is a major sign of a Sociopath. They play into pity. She is one of those people who puts her whole life on Facebook, which, I personally, find ridiculous.
While the book does recommend staying away from people like that, I believe it is also good to just stay aware.
Tra and I do not get together to often and when we do, I pretty much just listen without taking sides.
So, back to the title and question:
What are you reading? And Is it affecting your life?
We’ve all heard the saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” but what if you’re a woman? I know…I know… it’s just language..blah..blah…
But, here is a true example:
Cin has been wanting a new Loveseat to replace the one in her 5th Wheel…. She has had it since 2017…. Last week, one of my neighbors had one to get rid of…. When you want to get rid of furniture, you put it in front of the house for either the neighbors, trash man or junk guy to take…but when she put her hand down the side to see if the cushions would come off, her fingers got into a nest of bugs. Cin is not a squeamish person so for her to freak out, it was bad. Anyway, that was last week, I think. Yesterday, as I was walking home from the mailboxes, I passed this Loveseat
and took the picture. I forgot to tell her about it til today. But, needless to say, it’s still there, clean…well, the owner said stained. They are getting rid of it because it is old…. and really comfortable. So Cin and B are going to pick it up, tomorrow. We just have to pray it will fit in the 5th Wheel…. Which, Cin lives in, by the way.
So, while this is more of Cin’s story, I did my good deed by finding it for her.
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.
I just finished watching an episode of Hoarders. I know people that are Hoarders and when they watch that program, they say, “At least, I am not that bad.”. How is that even a comparison? To even say that; means you might have a problem.
I, myself, am not a Hoarder, but I am a Slob in some areas. Getting this house ready to sell is bringing those areas to my attention. I need to clean my kitchen cabinets, but first, I am attacking the stove. I use the same burner most of the time and the grease build-up is incredible! Where would you say is your worst area to keep up with?
On another topic, Cin is in the hospital. She is constantly in AFIB with her heart and I think they are doing a (hopefully, minor) surgery. She is 63 years old.
