Situation Moral

Prayers continuing please as this should be over in a few more days.

The Handyman finished most of what he is doing and will come back in a few weeks for the rest of it. We are going to paint one wall, tomorrow. I can do the rest after my family gets settled. I am hoping to get everything.. well not everything..out of storage and moved into the house on Friday and to pick up the cats on Saturday. Just praying I have access to the remaining funds in time.

This morning was bad. Suzy spent a day and a night under the sofa and I finally got her out. Then, she immediately pee’d on the bed. I got dressed and ready to do the laundry when Cin had a yelling fit about cleaning the house and wanting me to clean under the bed/table and needing help, etc.. I am not saying I was an Angel in all this, but I did talk to her later and said I would really appreciate if she would just talk civil and not yell at me, but she goes, “Oh, you think that was yelling? You haven’t heard me yell.”

Later, when we went to my place to prepare the wall for paint, I asked Cin to do the top and I would do the bottom, she immediately started doing things her way. That’s when I decided I just want to finish most of it on my own time, after I get moved in.

I don’t want to speak up and get snapped at especially when we can’t leave yet.

I think the moral from this situation is:. Live with a friend Only as last resort no matter how close you are.

Midnight Wednesday & Possibilities

I believe this is technically my Tuesday Post since I was exhausted last night. I couldn’t keep my eyes open after 8.

I talked to the Manager, yesterday (let’s call her Mgr… Yeah, I know. My creativity is over the top!) and she told me TWO rentals are coming up, soon. So, I will get a choice! She also reminded me that they are small and old… BUT….I DON’T CARE! It would be affordable and I can get my babies out of the Pet Hotel and have them with me.

Small, is here!

Plus, it would be My Own!

Remember I told you about being scratched by Miss Kitty? My Suzy spent almost two days under Cin’s bed after that until I got her out. Now, she is back with me.

We believe she does eat and go potty, at night, but even she is tired of feeling unwelcome. Not saying we are Unwelcome. But, the crazy rules and ways Cin lives, is getting old.

I will probably do another Post later today, as it is Tara’s Birthday. I might just share a bit about how I came to be blessed with her. She is 10 Years Old, today!

Grateful? I am so grateful for the future possiblity! I have been praying, trusting, and believing. I am so grateful God does what he promises and listens to our prayers! He knows my future and I continue with continued prayers and belief in him while waiting for it to come true!

Keep praying this happens really soon, please!

Today

Got my Replacement Debit/Credit Card today. This one will have a Puppy design! They don’t make one with cats. We also went to check on a low-income mobile home park, but they are closed until Nov 9th. I am still hoping/praying something will open here, soon

I found Fonster. Well, he wasn’t lost except in the bed stuff..so, here’s is vacation photo:

Suzy came out from under Cins’ bed, finally. I was so happy to wake up next to her! She got chased a bit but no major fights. She was actually out while Miss Kitty slept on the bed, when we got home.

I haven’t mentioned the other cat but she is really quiet and docile. If Miss Kitty weren’t here, she and Suzy could probably become friends. Her name is Baby, and I might get a picture, sometime.

Living With Others

You learn a lot about people when living with them, and not exactly in good ways.

I am discovering that Cin has a short temper and gets snippy really easily. Plus, she never prepared the house for me; so gets annoyed at my boxes on the floor, etc.. since there isn’t much room. I can’t use the stove because that would mean moving a bunch of stuff off of it. So, I can’t eat a lot of my boxed stuff for a while. I also was not happy yesterday when she really didn’t want to help me clean and only did toward the end because we had to leave to pick her nephew up and take him somewhere.

I am also noticing the bad health Cin is in. Yes, I see it, otherwise, but you can really see it when you live with someone.

The Manager here said she will have something in mid November but she is not sure what condition it will be in. At least it would be mine, temporarily and I could get the girls back so I can have my little family, again.

I really wish something would open sooner but the months are going fast, anyway.

I am not trying to complain as I don’t mean to be ungrateful. I am quite thankful to Cin for her friendship.

Back To Myself

I would say Back To Normal but who wants to be Normal? And, what is Normal anyway? Normal for one guy featured on ‘My Strange Addiction’ is wearing Casts even though he hasn’t broken any bones. He likes the feeling of the Cast, and loves the attention he gets.

Anyway, picked up Monkeys meds today for her appointment, found a cheaper place to Board the cats (decided to take Tara to Cin’s with me), went to the Post Office and mailed a few packages plus picked up mail and bought stamps, went gambling a bit, Albertsons and Port-Of-Subs. Plus, did a Goodwill drop-off. (Cat Bridge, Printer, Sandwich Maker, Muffin Pan and Magazine).

They lock up the Permanent Markers at Albertsons and you have to ask for assistance, which is silly. To make it worse, the employee has to take the Marker to the Cashier. You can’t carry it with you! What are they afraid of; people changing the prices in the store? It’s like a $3.00 item,not a Diamond Ring or anything that can cause harm…. except outside where people can use it for graffiti. But, it’s not like they ask what you are using it for. They will still sell it to you.

Found a possible place.. actually no, I am not going there. It isn’t possible as, I haven’t heard from my mortgage girl. Looking at rental options before actually scheduling Boarding, and getting some quotes for Movers.

Oh Yes, I also wrapped a Christmas Gift, as I wrap as soon as I buy and receive. It makes things a lot easier, that way.

Friend Turned Acquaintance

There are different levels of friendship and it is a shame when someone drops.

I don’t have a lot of friends but I prefer quality over quantity, and want to surround myself with positive people who build me up verses cut me down. 

That being said, let me share about the situation with K:

I have known K. for a while.  I met her when I had my Smart car. K. worked at the repair shop I took her to.  Anyway, I have had problems with K in the past.  She went to see Donny and Marie with me a few years ago and almost ruined it by going on about how she really didn’t care for Donny, then making fun of me when I was nervous about meeting him, She came over and kept picking at my cat because the cat doesn’t like her, She got annoyed when we were on the phone because I received a package and was excited to open it, saying, “Okay, I guess our conversation isn’t that important.”etc.. 

I think the final hit came yesterday.  We were catching up via phone and K asked what I have been doing.  I told her about the Secret Santa Exchanges and she goes, “Secret Santa?  I thought that was only at Christmas?”. When I explained about the themed exchanges during the year; she said sarcastically, “Oh great. Now I will have to hear about that all year.”. I said, “No, I won’t talk about it with you but you asked what I have been doing.”

That hurt because if you are a friend, you should at least listen even if it isn’t something you are interested in.

I am realizing what a selfish, condescending and rude person, K is. I have decided not to call her anymore and hopefully the friendship will fade away.

Wild & Scary Uber Ride

I am sure most of you have heard of Mr.Toad’s Wild Ride so let me tell you about mine.

I was sitting on the bench at the park entrance during the wind, trying to set up an Uber ride. I guess I put the wrong destination in because I received notice that a driver was coming to take me to City Center. I didn’t even know where or what City Center is and quickly texted the driver the name of my actual destination. When the driver came, I even told him the correct destination. He started driving and said “No English”. Any time I said anything, he said “No English” and after getting on and off the freeway, I was freaking out. I’m like “Just let me off at the next restaurant.” But, he totally ignored me and completed the ride. I was dropped off at an auto parts store and had to get another Uber to pick me up and take me to my actual destination.

Of course I reported this to Uber, but, their Customer Service is only online.

I don’t know if I will get a refund for that ride, but, I should. It was scary watching him go the wrong way from where I really needed to go and ignoring me when I wanted out. I almost felt like I was being abducted.

Uber did say they “Took care of it” …so the driver may have been let go?” As the 2nd driver said, “They should have Google Translate.” He thinks the guy knew English and just took me for a ride.

Boundary Understanding

I have mentioned before that we are studying ‘Boundaries’ in my Bible Study.  It is really giving me new perspectives and understanding in dealing with situations that used to really upset me. 

Today’s Example: 

My BFF in Virginia and I both love Jeff Dunham.  A few weeks ago, we discovered through one of his videos that he was inviting his viewers to participate in a sing-along on video with him and Achmed.  Viewers were invited to submit their videos and Jeff is going to put together a compilation.  Well, both BFF and I forgot about this..until today.  BFF sent me a text that she and her daughter submitted their video.  When I called and asked her for the link, she snapped at me, saying, “I don’t know.  M. did it.  She’s busy right now. You can look it up.”  I could have snapped back; but, I didn’t.

I remembered how she used to be so competitive with me when growing up and realized that she doesn’t want me submitting a video and being in competition with her. For whatever reason, it’s on her.

So, I looked up the information. I was unable to submit a video through my phone and when I called BFF back to ask a question, she apologized for snapping.

I still share this with you to get it out of my system but am proud of myself for not escalating stupid situations anymore.
