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.
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.
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.
Had a long talk with my Realtor. There is seriously Nothing out there in my price range! However, the eviction ban is lifting starting tomorrow, I believe..so…
Something may open next week in the park where Cin lives for under $500. It would be super small, but better than a hotel, for a while. I am also considering an apartment for a year or so..but, even those are super high!
I know I said I wasn’t going to stress. But, I am Human so I do, anyway.
Also finished a book today and had a Migraine. Figured I would get one after reading like 3 hours straight. Maybe, I will do a review on it, sometime. It was really good.
Today was a Lab day which threw my body (Head) off! On Lab Days, I fast before, then my eating schedule is all thrown off!
I seriously need a new Nephrologist, as, once again, she tried to throw in tests to a tune of $400. My Pay, which I am Not covering! I may start looking for someone else, tomorrow.
Today, I signed up for a new Realtor..after talking to my Ex-Mortgage Girls’ Supervisor, yesterday. That stupid girl doesn’t even work for the company anymore! She just up and quit, leaving me in the cold! Anyway, her supervisor is nice and actually sent me the PreQual, so I have it now.
I swept and mopped the back room again, today, as, Monkey tends to pee on the floor when she feels like it! I swear, if she were a real Monkey, she would be throwing her Poo!
I also received a really cool surprise from my Secret Santa! A Mini IstaCamera in Grape. Seriously, I think the guy spent over $100!. People are freaking out since Secret Santa is ending!
Lastly, D. is still in jail…I hope he rots there!..But, Bruno has been picked up by the Rescue!
Isn’t he sweet? I feel as if I could touch him! Please pass the word, if you know anyone interested. He really is a good dog! I am now done checking on D. since he didn’t get Bruno back. I would say it’s sad because D. has now lost Everything! But, He chose Drugs! Nobody chose it for him!
My day ended in a Migraine which doesn’t surprise me. But, it was a normal one which means sleeping about 3 hours after taking meds, so, I am awake now and it’s almost 9 p.m.
I didn’t do much today like cleaning, which I meant to do because it is Matching Day for the Reddit Secret Santa Exchange. There is another one coming next month, but the Big and Final one is in November.
Anyway, this one is for Colors and my Match lives in California and I had fun finding a few things to match his interests and those of his wife. Cin is also going to crochet some Pot Holders in their favorite color for me. I also helped TxFriend find something for her Match who is a Grandma decorating a Nursery. It was almost to bad we couldn’t trade, because I love decorating!
My Match hasn’t been pulled yet, but it’s only the first day. They actually have until the 1st or 2nd to mail. I just hope they like the color, Purple. No, not the movie.
*Update- My Match pulled my information and shipped my gift as I was typing my blog. Yay!
This morning was another Migraine morning and the Hemp/CBD Oil is not helping at all! I sort of wonder if it could be making them worse.
The company has a great Return Policy with a full refund, but I had to get my Debit Card replaced and changed so I might see if they can refund it by check. I don’t know if they will, but it’s worth a try to ask.
The government is helping to pay for people’s phones and plans through Cricket..and a few other companies…so I will only have to pay $5.00 a month for the next 6 months. This included a new phone which is annoying to get set up. Unfortunately, the reception really sucks between Cin and me, as well as, between me and another friend in Henderson. Yet, my friend in Texas can hear me clearly.
So, we got the phones on Friday, then went gambling where the machines refused to pay out. This was our 2nd or 3rd time at Emerald Island, so we have decided not to return there. Pizza Hut was good. Got the $11.99 Family Meal each and still have some left. Couldn’t find the movies we wanted to watch for free, though, so wound up watching television. Of course, sleeping at someone else’s house is never the same, so that threw my body off, too.
Today, we went back to Cricket to sort out some stuff on the phones..here, is hoping the reception will “fix itself through the transition”..per the girl at the store..then came home with a Migraine from Hell.
Took 2 Imatrex or one full one. Part of it could be stress over the phone plan, the fact Cins’ cars air-conditioning doesn’t work and the fact that I am running out of anti-rejection meds again. Gotta figure out just what my brother is covering, so I can start budgeting for them, better.
Anyway, looking forward to going to sleep without drugs (Imatrex) now, so, have a great night!
I get tired of being stepped on; be they people or companies!
I went to the bank today with the purpose of getting some money from the Instateller. Surprisingly, the Instateller was working.. since it is usually broken…until;. I put my card in and ask for my cash..then it refuses to return my card or give me my cash but flashes a sign saying (See Bank). I go to the nearest Teller.. let’s call him Tel ..who did not have a customer and explain the situation. He says they will have to give me a Temporary Card and I need to get in line. I’m like, “Why? You’re machine ate my card.” And he goes, “”We have other customers.”.” Needless to say, I get in line behind 2 or 3 others, but I am pissed! It’s the principle of the thing. They chose to wait in line, I didn’t! Well, Surprise, Surprise, I get back to Tel. I’m like, “I’m Back.”. So, he gives me a new, temporary card while I voice my opinion and I got the Managers card and info. Upon returning to the car where Cin has been waiting, I call the bank; but of course, I am unable to reach a human being!
Needless to say, I just sent the Branch Manager an email explaining the whole thing. While, nothing will come out of it, at least, I was able to share or vent my opinion.
I also cancelled my Hot Topic Account with Comenity Bank. I don’t trust them and doubt they would have told the truth to Experian, anyway.
Lastly, I ordered some CBD/Hemp today after being down almost all day, yesterday. I am willing to try it again for some (hopefully) headache/Migraine relief or at least cut down how often I have been getting them. Let’s pray it helps.
The one I had this morning didn’t surprise me. I was up late with fireworks and had to turn the music loud and watch tv with subtitles, so the cats didn’t freak out.
Monkey turned Psycho and bit me twice
and Susy would hear a firework go off and look at me to judge my reaction.
Tara didn’t really care.
Anyway, I usually get Migraines 2-3 times a week equalling to around 14 a month, but the amount usually drops in the Summer! So, the fact I went 4 straight days without one, is awesome!
I am in a Migraine Group on Facebook and one girl gets like 17 a month! When you are only allowed 9 Imatrex per month, that can be tough. Good thing I take them half at a time.
This is something I live with, so, I am not complaining. It’s my main Disability, and a life I am used to. I really don’t remember a life without them, although, I know I had it because these Migraines started in my 20’s. I could go back on Hormones and see if that helps, but that means started periods again, so No Thank You!
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.
