Good, Scary News

Buyer has been approved! So, I can almost say House is Sold! The Title will be signed over on the weekend!

The scary part is nothing is available in Cin’s Trailer Park, at present so I don’t know where I am going, yet.

But, tomorrow, I am going to fill out an Application there for the next place that comes up. I have 30 days for something to open or to find a cheap apartment, somewhere.. otherwise, I may be living with Cin temporarily and leaving at least two of the cats with Tra. Monkey can be a Brat and I don’t want her hurting anyone.

Please Keep Praying as, I believe God’s got this! But, the unknown is still a bit scary.

Saving Bruno

Last year, my dog, Bruno..whom I gave to my Ex…was in the Animal Shelter. I was working with A Path For Paws where I originally adopted him, but, D. got him back before they could. The Volunteer came back today, informing me that Bruno is back in the shelter for the 3rd time! I immediately filled out the form and gave them my info so they can take him and find him a home. D. was caught dragging and kicking Bruno and since it’s the 3rd time, he is NOT getting him back. Please pray for my puppy… Okay, he is like 5 or 6 now..to heal from any physical or emotional wounds that he has endured and he finds another home, soon. I still can’t take him because

A). He doesn’t get along with cats

B) I am moving, soon.

I will post his picture when I get one and the rescue info if you know anyone interested.

I am making no excuses for D. and his drug addiction. He is obviously hitting the bottom.

I am extremely thankful that God gave me the courage to get out of that relationship/marriage.

Angry At The Source

Before I start this, I have an important Prayer Request:

My friend, Cin, is going to the doctor today to get a Lump on her Breast checked out. Please pray it is nothing or minor. Her appointment is in 1 1/2 hours. 1:00 p.m. Las Vegas time.

As for the title, Here is the situation:

Hot Topic does not communicate with the bank they do business with. Comenity! If you have a billing or payment issue, you need to call the bank, directly.

Comenity is refusing to take responsibility for their action of doing a Hard Pull which affected my credit report, after telling me it was their system error! They actually sent me a notice saying they will not fix this issue, as it would be a ” Good Will Gesture”. NO, it would be fixing their error! I am still waiting to see if Experian can fix things with them.

Anyway, I still like Hot Topic and will continue to purchase from them but will Not use their card. It will be Cash or Debit from now on! Comenity also is behind the cards of Victoria’s Secret, Wayfair, Woman Within, and more!

So, the moral of this is; Do your research on the bank before signing up for the store card. Plus, when you get angry with a company, be sure it is with the right department!

I have now chosen to avoid cards backed by Comenity Bank, and I hope others do too.

Sneaky Doctor

So, I went to the Lab today for my Nephrologist and the Phlebotomist (that’s the one who takes blood, for those who don’t know) goes, “Does your insurance usually cover this?”. I’m like, “Yes, I never had a problem, before.”. Then she tells me the doctor added two tests (one a vitamin and one for Iron) that aren’t covered and cost $300 + dollars. I’m like, “Nope. Not paying for those.”. So, I had her delete them from the test. My appointment is on the 5th and if my Nephrologist (Kidney Specialist) says anything, I might just tell her if she wants to pay 300 or whatever dollars, I’ll go back and do it.

Speaking of money, …I was…. I gave a Homeless Bag to a guy who really needed it! Like this guy was totally shaking, and shuffling and in his own world. I don’t know if he was tripping on illegal drugs or what, Hey, maybe he was out of his medicine he can’t afford… it’s not my business. I did say an extra prayer for him, though. It made me feel good to help someone who Really needs it.

See you all tomorrow, and hopefully everyone will think of at least one thing they learned this week, to share with the class.HA! Haven’t decided yet if I will title it, ‘Saturday Share’ or ‘Sharing Saturday’. What sounds better?

Hoarder Verses Slob

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.

Prayers, Please.

A-Z Challenge-T = Time

Planning for and celebrating Christmas can take a lot of Time.

Sending out Christmas cards, Shopping, Getting gifts delivered on Time, cleaning the house for visitors, decorating for the season, cooking or setting your schedule for guests, partying or traveling..if that’s your thing…The list seems endless. Some people get stressed, just thinking about it.

Just remember to take care of yourself during this Time, and don’t forget the real reason for the season.

This may have been short, but, adding a quick life, update:

Picked up Puma, yesterday..So to speak, I know it’s her Ashes…The box is still in the bag along with the weird picture frame with footprint, tacky poem, and piece of her fur. I didn’t want a footprint. It’s morbid. I would rather they make those when they are alive.

Anyway, been feeling weird. Having a hard time at the idea of Euthanasia for animals and not for people. Also, not ready to move the box/bag to be packed in a moving box or trunk in the dark. I know she is gone.. and Yes, I do believe Animals have souls and go to Heaven!…but, my mind is just off kilter right now, and I can’t deal.

My remaining cats miss her, as well; especially Monkey, as they were best friends.

Please, keep us in your prayers while we adjust.

And tomorrow is the letter, U. You will have no idea where I will go with that….see what I did there?.. because it is a bit out there… but still related to Christmas

Sl o o o w. ..Day

Ever had those days that went so slowly, you just wanted it over?  Yeah, That was me, today. 

I finished the first book in the Narnia Series, played some games on the phone, took my walk to & from the mailbox, ate like 3 meals and a snack…or maybe 3 snack meals..whatever. Then debated on what to do, tomorrow or over the weekend.

Made a phone call to a friend I have known for a while and am a bit concerned as it is her son or grandson on her answering machine and she is older and not in the best of health. She is actually my BFFs Mothers’ Best Friend but my BFF doesn’t keep in touch with her, like I do. I have a feeling if something bad happened, I will be the one to share with my BFF. Prayers Please.

Dog Stress & Migraines

I am an animal person! I can’t help it. I like animals better then people, so, when animals are uncared for, abused and/

or abandoned; it bothers me.

J. called, this morning, about taking Zorro..her dog…to the shelter. She claimed she had been told she didn’t need an appointment. Turns out, she does need an appointment and they are booked for the next two weeks. So, that trip did nothing but stress out me, Zorro and J. as well. To be honest, J. lies and makes things up. C. and I don’t believe anyone told her she didn’t need an appointment. What with COVID, appointments are needed for everything, now.

Anyway, the girl at the shelter gave J. a list of places to call; and I was just informed by C. that someone is coming to pick up the dog..like they did the cats. So, that’s good news, and will be one less stressor.

Only a few more weeks, until J. is gone to Idaho…which will be a relief for both C. and myself. In the meantime, prayers for patience, please.

Quiet Payday

When your on Disability and get paid only once a month, the day it hits your bank means a lot. Since the rent was covered with the last Stimulus; it was nice to pay off almost all debts and get down to just the car payment. I say “almost” because I forgot a small bill.

I am stocked on food and I took out some money for the laundromat and to wash my car, so I am pretty well set, this month. Plus, I was even able to get a set of Vegetable Shaped Catnip toys. The cats favorite toy looks like Kale and reads ‘Kale Yeah’. They fight over it; the set has Carrot, Corn, Zucchini and Banana..to name a few. I am going to throw away a few of their old toys, once the new set arrives.

I still hope and pray we get another Stimulus Check so I can actually pay a head on the car and maybe put something away in Savings. I would also like to get some Migraine Patches to try, but have to wait on that.

This month has been the worst for Migraines and I don’t know why. Maybe stress over Jeans animals? I know they are not my responsibility, but my heart breaks that she gave them away and even more for that dog, as I really doubt they will adopt him out.

Prayers Please that I can give that situation to God.

Helping J Move

Her Realtor plus the new people want her out in two weeks but…

This lady has so much stuff! I worked for a few hours today taking things down, packing boxes, etc… My lower back hurts and I’m tired.

Getting ready for another Yard Sale next week although this one will be a Moving Sale! Almost everything in the house is being sold.

She still has to figure out the cost of a moving company, schedule a flight, and figure out what to do with the dog. He is 18 and has 3 legs.

I am afraid if she takes him to the shelter, he won’t have a chance! She doesn’t want to pay for him to go on the plane. C. says it might be better if they put him down because both she and J. believe he won’t make it in the cold in Idaho. It just kills me to see people give up their animals so easily. They become part of your family. How can you just abandon them or put them to sleep to get out of the responsibility! But, it’s her dog and I can’t stress over that, either.

I pray God gives me peace over the situation with her animals and trust whatever is done works out for the best for all involved.
