Annoyed Today

No, I didn’t wake up that way.

This morning I received an email from my Park Manager about the old mattress I had leaning against a tree that I had to move ASAP because it doesn’t make our park look good. There is a lot more than mattresses in front of people’s houses, but whatever…so I dragged it as far as I could; before asking a neighbor to help me move it by my trash cans. We have a guy pick up discarded furniture, etc every other Thursday, so, I might have to put it out again tomorrow night or Thursday morning. Ugh!

But, to make matters worse, the Manager said someone stole the Buyers Application for my house! Pardon the french,but..What The Fuck!?? The Buyers put the Application in the office Mailbox which is in the Door! How the Hell can someone steal that!? Knowing the Manager, she probably threw it away. I would like to ask her tomorrow, after they resubmit it, if she will be kind enough to put a rush on it since it was “Stolen”, but, I am afraid that might backfire.

I am just concerned on the timing. I know of one place opening in the park Cin is in and if I miss that, I don’t know what will open in October.

I am trying not to stress, but.. Please keep those prayers coming, if you do that.

In good news, I signed up to be a Rematcher for Secret Santa and my person received the first part of their gift today! I really hope they like it and I also hope they get my sense of humor.

Matching Day

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.

Life Update

Yesterday, I went to the doctor for a Mammo and Dexa.  I am hoping my Osteoporosis isn’t worse.  I can’t take most of the medications for it.

Cin took me to look at some awesome mobiles or manufactured homes with land, but the only one with a sign is already under Contract.  However, I think I found my Realtor by doing that

I am not happy with the mortgage girl and hope she is not playing games with the Prequal.  She is supposed to call me, today.

Came home to sad news that Redditgifts is ending. Which means No More Secret Santa. A lot of people are really upset; including me. However, the original person started another one, I believe; or will continue it somehow so ..

Weather Drop

Mother Nature is off her meds again!  A cold wind hit last night and the weather dropped like 10+ degree’s.  I didn’t even go anywhere, today.  Just watched the wind, turned on the heater and drank lots of coffee.  Sudden weather changes can be very annoying for Migraine sufferers like me. 

Had a conversations with my BFF.   She is excited for Arbitrary Day next month on Reddit Secret Santa.  It’s a lot like the big exchange in November except less people participate so they put more effort…well, most do… into the gift giving.  Since my BFF is completely obsessed, she is really hoping to get stuff  Brendan Fraser related.  Which reminds me, I wrote the other day to his PR Department to see if I can get her an autographed picture of him to add with a Christmas thing I am putting together for her.  It’s never to early to start planning.

What People Give

The Reddit Secret Santa Exchanges are interesting because some people spend the minimum or a bit less, others go way overboard, others go for a happy medium. The minimum minus tax should be $20. There is no maximum. Plus, the gift is based on a list of your person’s likes and dislikes.

I was actually surprised on what I received for my 80’s gift!

I mentioned that I missed listening to the music from Dr. Demento on 97.1 KMET (I even met the great Doctor at the Orange County Fair in California, years ago and have a picture of us.) so she got me a CD. This particular CD is one of, if not, the earliest, with songs from the 1800’s. I definitely would not have purchased it, myself.

I will not say I am disappointed, although, I had most of my list focused on Friday-The-13th. There are always other exchanges, so, you never know.

I am having fun buying gifts for others and knowing they enjoy them. Just like giving food, etc.. bags to the homeless. I helped a man, today.. and it felt good.

Lots Of Reading

It’s been a quiet day with lots of reading. I’ve finished reading Daniel, so I can lead the study tomorrow; plus, am in the process of reading Ann Rule..You Belong To Me;  and like, 5 other stories.

I joined the Book Exchange-Secret Santa on Reddit, and it was a bit difficult, again. The girl I got likes Fantasy Fiction and books with LGBT characters and Crystals..none of which I know anything about. Luckily, she likes to go to the Library, so I got creative. I got her:

$15.00 Gift Card to Barnes &Noble
Fantasy Fiction book that sounded interesting.
A Tote Bag with a Library theme
And a Library themed Facemask.

She is in California, so I am sure they still have to wear them.

Thanks for the comments/compliments on my haircut.  It’s fun and bouncy.  I am waiting to color it until it gets warmer, here.

Yesterday

Yesterday was quiet and a Migraine Day. Later on, I read a book until one in the morning. Today is more lazy, I think. I need to go to the laundromat which I keep putting off; so, instead I just don’t get dressed.

The new list of exchanges are listed on Reddit Secret Santa. They have different exchanges throughout the year. Same rules, but the exchanges are themed. I have signed up for Books and Bookmarks. The Bookmarks one is no minimum, but to receive $20 worth of books would be totally cool!

Santa Delivered

Last year was my first year doing Reddit Secret Santa and I was a bit disappointed because the gift I received was completely random and nothing I was into or wanted. It was like the person just looked at the website for Uncommon Goods and picked the first $20. item.

Fast forward to this year:

Once again, I gave my Santa quite a few options of my interests. They sent me a message that something was coming and apologized for not finding it in Purple. After waiting impatiently for two days, it arrived!

Sushi Cookbook & Sushi Kit

So excited to learn how to make Sushi!

And so thankful to the stranger who followed the Secret Santa rules and sent a thoughtful gift.

Will definitely be taking part and encouraging others to take part in the Reddit Secret Santa Exchange for years to come!

*Reddit has other exchanges throughout the year, but, this is the main event.

Obsessed

I know I haven’t blogged every day minus Sunday like I should but right now I am seriously Obsessed over Reddit Secret Santa and I hate to drive you all crazy.

My guy got the first part of his gift the other day and I received a message last night that mine is in the mail! They actually tried this time and read my form even apologizing for whatever it is not being Purple.

I am living vicariously through the Gallery as people post the gifts received. It’s amazing what strangers are sending other strangers!

Plus, I have two friends involved this time so we’ve been on the phone for hours comparing and helping each other with our Matches and sharing gifts received. My BFF received expensive Chocolate for her, gluten-free and healthy dog treats for her dog, and a shirt is on the way! We did some research and the guy who had her is in Michigan.

Anyway, will try to post more often and discuss other topics.

Please pass if I go on and on. I won’t cry…to much.

Let’s Talk About…

Birthdays, since mine was yesterday. I think as we get older, we get more introspective and it isn’t as much about us. I mean, it’s great when you are spoiled and your Birthday is acknowledged, but I was more excited for my Secret Santa Match on Reddit.

The man I got is a bit difficult to buy for so I really have to get creative. He is the DIY type. He doesn’t have many likes except for Poker. What’s amazing is gifts are already being received and posted when matching was yesterday! It’s just been so fun to see or share about the people my friends got as well and what they are getting them!

I did receive an Amazon Gift Card from my brother for my Birthday so had fun ordering things for myself, yesterday. I also spent the day with C. and J. since C. had to take J. to the hospital. We watched Achmed sing a song about 2020 while waiting in the car.
