That is, until I got frustrated and said Screw It! Packing the rest in a box and vowing to get a Shredder in the future.
Speaking of boxes, I think mine are multiplying by themselves.
I counted 52, but I am sure I missed a few, and I still have the kitchen and clothes to pack! My Goodwill bag is also filling up, which is a plus, but, damn..where does all this stuff come from? I am thinking if I can put some smaller boxes in some bigger ones, it will at least bring the total down.
The one thing I will miss when I move is seeing The Stratosphere out my kitchen window at night, so, I took some pictures.
It’s the red light above one of the houses. One of the neighbors have lights up which the flash bounced off, on the far left.
Before I share this, I want you to know, I watched an interesting movie yesterday which I will be reviewing tomorrow, probably.
Also, my house/mobile home is half painted. Not sure I care for the color, but it’s approved by the park, it will look cleaner and I should be able to sell this place which is what really matters and the main reasons I did this.
And now, I would like to introduce you to:
He is here and he is going to be my bodyguard and house security. That’s his job.
I love Secret Santa, but not when people can’t keep it a secret. A lot of different places do it…the office, families and even Reddit.com.
The principle is this;
You put the names of all participants in a box, hat, whatever, set a price limit and have everyone fill a paper with their name, likes, dislikes,etc…then draw a name, individually. They cannot get themselves. Give them a date for the reveal.
Reddit.com has the largest Secret Santa in the world on the internet. You sign up for Reddits.gifts. Fill out a form, wait till Matching Day when you are randomly matched, get your gift sent out by a specific date and post a picture of whatever you receive. Reddit has Secret Santa Exchanges every few months with different themes like Cookbooks,Autos,80’s,Plants,etc… There is bound to be something you are interested in. But, the Christmas one is the largest with the most participants.
Forgive me since this was more factual then fun. I picked up Pumas’ ashes today and am a bit stressed so a Migraine has started. Going down with pain meds in a few. I put the box on the shelf in the bag for now as, I just can’t deal. Maybe, when I move, I will find somewhere to put her.
Yes, my mind is back on that despite not doing well at saving money. The house… okay, trailer…is being painted outside, next month.
C. had to pick up Ben from work so I asked if I could go along. We passed a restaurant that I cannot pronounce the name ‘Las Pupusa’. I tried it way to many times and even Googled it. I had C. cracking up by either adding too many poo’s,s’ss or la’s, and it wasn’t/isn’t deliberate. My letters just twist when I try to say the word.
After dropping Ben off, we decided to go gambling, again. This time at Rainbow Casino. It was really cool and they even gave us free gifts. C. loaned me $20 which I repaid her plus I even got to spin the wheel and won $50. on it. We also got $12.50 to spend at the restaurant but didn’t want to wait half hour. At least it’s good for 7 days. I left with $30 and bought us dinner at Denny’s.
Came home to find my clothes from Breezecloth.com arrived but don’t want to try them on til tomorrow. I was tired of smelling like smoke and needed to take a bath and crawl in bed. They look nice but the one pair of pants has cat faces with pink cheeks, so if I keep it, I will need to get purple fabric marker or paint to fill that in, before I wear them.
I have decided not to get new windows but to get the outside of the house painted, instead.
Not really. I could just as well have titled it. ‘Trying To Be A Cat’. I slept from 5:30 or 6 last night, woke up around 2 then back to sleep, reawoke at 5:30,with a Migraine..took an Imatrex, then back to sleep until 9:30 a.m.
Got some Mobile Home Insurance today, since mine has lapsed and its best to have it…just in case.
Also, my Book Santa on Reddit came through in a big way and got me the entire ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’ set from my Wishlist. They have other exchanges coming up throughout the year which also sound fun. I highly recomend joining
Figured I would share a laugh since grammar is so important.
Anyone else do the bored eating? You aren’t really hungry, but, the food is there..
The Washer & Dryer won’t fit in my trailer/mobile home. I don’t know why it is one person measures one way and another a different way. But, I trust My Handyman. So I am pricing Washers and Dryers and may even get myself a portable. My new/old ones from J. are up for sale. I got them Free so I am selling them cheap. It will still be more then I had before.
The other purchase I need to do is get two new windows. My slatted ones are a bitch and don’t close all the way so the kitchen is super drafty. The sizes are hard to find though since they have been here since this place was built in 1961.
I must say, it is an amazing feeling to have all my bills paid and money left over in the bank. Plus, I don’t have to worry about bank overdraft charges.
Reminder- If you are a business I have no interest in, privately selling something or do not have a semi-normal profile photo; I Will Block You From Following Me. until you get the hint.
