15 Minutes

Just read an article about Florida and some people living in some condos…not the ones that came down…were given 15 minutes to get whatever belongings they can out of their homes.  Apparently, the condo has been inspected and deemed unsafe so the management is deciding what to do.

Let’s think about that for a minute!

What could you get out of your house in 15 minutes? You have already gotten yourself and your animals out. If it were me, I would probably be grabbing the first things I can which would hopefully be some of my packed boxes mainly books and collectibles and Puma! I would also try to grab my photo albums and Yearbooks, if I had time to focus. 15 minutes is not a long time!

I guess some people got food, medicine and clothes, one person got their fish tank…no idea if there was anything in it.

But, just like the game, if you had to leave and take only 3 things with you, what would they be…I ask, what would you try to get out if you only had 15 minutes?

Self-Inflicted Stress

Stress is mainly caused by your reactions of what is happening around you.

Today’s Stress is brought to you by my reaction to Sis 1. 

We usually touch base once a week or so, however its been two weeks since she screamed at me about my getting the Covid19 Vaccine. She is big time Anti-Covid Vax and refuses to take it. She believes all the negative crap and thinks it kills people as well as holding the Christian viewpoint of it being or preparing us for the Mark-Of-The-Beast. So, she is not speaking to me because of my choice to get the vaccine! Just as, she got very angry with our brother and wants nothing more to do with him because he stands by Biden and doesn’t like Trump. She says it doesn’t matter that our brother is blood related, she doesn’t have to communicate with stupid people. So, this is on her. But it still hurts. I sent her a text telling her I am thinking of her; to no avail.

I found a Smart Car for sale, used. One is around $6,000 with only $500 down and payments of like $100. The other is $5,000 no payments from Private Party. I don’t know about payments again and wish I could find a way to make money for the Private Party one. Summer is coming and I really am starting to miss having a car.

But, I also Really want to move and am not sure what to do, first.

Prayers Please for God to lead me the right direction.

First Vaccine Experience

Since my immune system has never been like others; I get reactions when most people don’t.  Which is what happened, yesterday.

C. and I were headed to our Covid Vaccine appointment when they called to reschedule; so we had an hour to kill.  We went to McDonald’s, then to Home Depot where I picked some color swatches for the house.  I think I will email them to the manager for approval

Upon arriving at the pharmacy, they checked us in and gave us a form to fill out which is simply a statistics sheet of where you fit in to be vaccinated..age range, race, reason (healthcare worker, disability, etc..).  The pharmacist gave the usual spiel…could cause this, that, etc.. before giving the vaccine, then you had to wait 15 minutes before leaving.  They set a timer. 

Within 10 minutes, I was feeling a little dizzy.  That passed, but then I developed a headache which turned into a Migraine within a few hours plus muscle aches.  The Migraine finally stopped around 2:30 this morning after giving in to Imatrex around 10:30.  The main problem now is the cough.  It’s a dry cough and started some time during the night.  And of course, I have no cough medicine.

  I have to believe if the first dose affected me like this, the next dose should be easier, or at least I know what to expect.  Maybe, I will just react opposite then most. 

   It’s a windy day anyway, so I am going to take it easy and stay warm.
