Animals & Patience

Yesterday, I visited the neighbors who got another new cat. Now, they have 2 cats and a bird. Bad Idea. They asked my opinion and after observing one of the cats obsessing over the bird..well… Cin would love to have a bird but, she would be in the same situation in an even smaller area. I had that situation once and wound up giving the bird to my mother.

The Mortgage Girl took a few days off to celebrate her Birthday, but, I have asked her to do a Hard Pull on my credit, tomorrow to see where I am at. It’s hard to be patient when there is literally nothing you can do to change the situation.

Gain Before Pain

When I say Gain, I don’t mean weight Gain.  I mean accomplishment, etc… and when I say Pain….Well….

I got another box packed, more stuff put in the donation bag, and started cleaning the bathroom before being hit by a Migraine… probably sinus related..and needing a break.  This one came with coughing, sneezing, sore throat and a possible, swollen gland. Not to concerned, but, it still hurts when I swallow. Feeling a bit better with the Migraine gone but still have a few other symptoms. I am wondering if this could be weather related even though I stay inside. I try to use the fan a lot more then the air conditioner.

When cleaning the bathroom, I wound up scratching the toilet while removing some tough stains. Can anyone recommend anything to get set in stains from bathtub and cabinets that won’t scratch and is animal friendly?

Something, I have around the house already, would be perfect and purr fect, as well.

A-Z Challenge-P = Party

My topic is Christmas since it’s my favorite Holiday.  But, first, an update:

Today marks a week since I lost my beautiful Puma due to Liver Failure.  She was 16.

She was my beautiful, Bengal.  Even though, I have had to do this with now 7 animals, I am having a hard time.  Why is it we can let animals go; when it’s illegal for humans?  Yes, Puma was suffering a bit, but if you’re elderly relative was suffering, you can’t legally make that decision.  And on this depressing note, let’s get on with our topic of Christmas Parties:

Yeah, Super bad segway.  Anyway… 

I have been to a few Parties at Christmas.  The work Parties which usually has dinner, dancing and raffle prizes, the church Parties for children and adults, and and of course the family and friends gatherings which are technically, Parties. 

I remember the day after attending a work Party, I was in the elevator with a hangover and some girls were talking, loudly.  I was like “Shhh” and they go, “Oh my God, you went to the Party?”. I’m like, “Yes, and now I have a headache.”. Then they go, “Wow, that’s so cool, we thought…”.  I go, “What? That I’m a total Prude and never drink?”. and they go, “Well, Yeah.”.  That was over 20 years ago, but, still…. I wonder if that is still the attitude of most people when it comes to fitting in…but, I digress. I love to dress up for Parties. I don’t care if everyone else wears jeans. A Party is a celebration.. especially at Christmas. Most Parties are enjoyable, but, rarely without drama.

Please share about a Party you attended. It could be a strange reaction like mine, a drama moment, or just about some of the foods you ate. What do you consider a Party?

Tomorrow is Q, and surprisingly, I think I know where I am going with it. Any guesses?

Found Zorro, Etc..

Zorro is up for adoption. Finally, the organization has him on the web site. They lied about the circumstances though by saying he was let go due to Covid. I think Covid is getting blamed for everything. Next time I have a Migraine, maybe I should blame Covid. Wait, that wasn’t funny. Headaches are a symptom.

Have you ever used Wish or Tophatter or similar apps to shop? I have noticed Wish has been upping their prices without warning. And, their Return Policy sucks, too. Two things I received were not what I ordered and C. is out like $50. for something she ordered that never arrived.

I really need to stick to more US based companies.

GoodWill And Good Will

No, I don’t know anyone named Will (or William) so I don’t know if he’s good. Actually, I had a boss named William who went by Bill and he was one of the best bosses I ever had, but he is deceased now.. Anyway:…

I went to the Goodwill today and donated the bags from J’s sale as well as, one of my own. Then, I bought some books. It’s much better and cheaper to buy books from The Dollar Tree or 99 Cents Store. $1.99 for a paper back is a bit ridiculous.

Then, I visited J. and dropped off an empty box, as well as, looked up the number for The Humane Society aka Animal Shelter so she can surrender her dog. I think they do have some older dogs with medical issues waiting for adoption, but, most were found as strays so..realistically, I don’t hold much hope. It’s a sad situation. Here’s the dog:

Zorro

So, I guess to summarize today, I went to the Goodwill, and then did Good Will.

Posted in Life, Me, Selling

Crazy, Long Day

Today was the last day for Moving Sale preparation and I even talked J into putting up Free Dog signs, to give Zorro a chance.

This is Zorro:

I, also bought a cute, Christmas Snowman Statue from J. that she almost didn’t sell to me. Don’t ask.

Anyway, while leaving Walgreens, I accidentally bumped the car behind me. Luckily, it’s a piece of shit car and I believe it is a very, minor dent. My car is fine. We exchanged insurance, blah, blah..plus, he and his mom were Christians so all was calm. Except, he didn’t have his License and just rattled off the info and he had to call his brother for the insurance info since it was his brothers car and it was wrong in the glovebox. Anyway, my insurance will cover it and I just pray my rates don’t spike much; if at all. Just as we are finishing up, a lady runs up to me saying, “That guy hit your car!” My car was parked at a slight angle with the emergency flashers on and some old guy backed into it, then drove off.

Once again, my car is fine..but the guy should have stopped. It’s the principle. Can you imagine if I had to call the insurance company back with a separate claim? You know, I named my car ‘Blessing’ and she really is. Maybe that’s why she is not getting damaged. Lol

Anyway, it’s only 7 something, but tomorrow is the first day of the sale and I have to get up early.

Please pray Zorro gets a new home, C. and I have patience, and J. sells a lot!

Oh, and my BFF and family Finally received their Christmas presents after a month a half. Thanks USPS.

Not Feeling Well

It started yesterday..Coughing, Sneezing, Sore Throat, Headaches, Congestion…This morning I hurt so bad I could hardly chew, but, still eating and drinking to kick this.

Got the new Cat Tree from J. Yesterday and cats seem to like it.

A bit concerned about Puma though, as she keeps hiding and facing the wall. I will be surprised if she sticks around for another year. She is 16 years old. I just hope if she does go, it happens naturally. I get so tired of having my final goodbyes be at a veterinary clinic.

Puma in my closet.

UnHealth & Sad Stuff

Been having some health issues and a bit concerned. Possible kidney infection due to weird symptoms so went for labs Friday morning. It’s been almost 14 years since my Transplant and I am praying it is a minor infection, if that, verses rejection. Infection can be treated with medication modification while rejection could mean dialysis and another transplant. Prayers Please.

Then after labs, I visited J. while the cats were picked up from the rescue organization. So sad. Princess was terrified and didn’t want to get in the carrier. We chased her for like an hour to grab her. Then I found out the last time J picked her up was to spank her so she probably thought she was in trouble.

The girl that picked them up was really rude, too. But in good news, both cats are now at Petsmart waiting to be adopted and being listed as bonded so they go together.

This is Tazzy.

What’s stupid though is the organization is calling Tazzy..Alexey and Princess..Tazzy. I sent them an anonymous email asking them to please change Princesses name as she has to be confused enough. She doesn’t need more stress by being called the name of her brother.

The organization itself is pretty good, though…as, I think that’s the same organization we adopted Puma from. It’s called Foreclosed Upon Pets.
