Quick Question

A lot of us have Storage Sheds or are using Storage Units so this question is for you:

If you lost your house and everything in it, would you be able to replace most of your belongings from the Shed stuff?

My answer is ‘No!’.

Right now,the main thing in my Storage is old files and paperwork.

Weekend Working, Etc

We have done a lot of work on my RV and I found a Handyman who is willing to help. But, he is actually going to give us guidance and maybe do the floor. Cin and I are doing most of it.

Table Set – Gone, Couch – Gone, Crappy Headboard, A Few Valances and Wall Mirror – Gone, Carpet Downstairs From Bedroom – Gone, Some Wallpaper Stripped, and Wall Cabinet Doors – Gone

In other news, I hope I am not like Cin when I am 63. Little things become Big issues ( like the possible Social Security Check Date Change) and her patience runs thin really easily.

‘Bitter Is The New Black’ by Jen Lancaster..A Book Review

Okay, This is my opinion on this book. If you are the actual Author or know her, I am in no way trying to offend. I am only a small fish in a large pond with her own views, after reading.

That being said;

“Bitter Is The New Black” is supposed to be a Memoir. Supposedly, it is fact and fiction mixed regarding the Author and how she began her writing career.

However,

If you have ever read any of the books in the , Confessions Of A Shopaholic’ by Sophia Kinsella, you will know it is about a girl with a shopping problem who receives letters from creditors and her creative ways of dealing with them. The situations she gets in are quite amusing.

‘Bitter Is The New Black’ and Jen’s situations are not quite as amusing as they are pretty much copied from the Confessions series with the exception of using email instead of actual letter writing. The topics and situations are a tad different, but the writing style is almost exact, taking the humor away and making one wonder

Does Jen know Sophia Kinsella and did she get permission to write this way?

I may not have written a book series (but have written a book on a self-publishing site) but, I know what plagiarism is and also a fine line, when I read it.

I prefer books written written by oneself in their own style

What Would You Do?

I don’t usually blog on Sunday but I totally need your help. Here’s the situation:

I sold my mobile home for enough to purchase a small trailer to live in,with cash.

Pro’s:

Trailer paid off. Only Space Rent. I could afford a car, soon. I could move it if I ever wanted to move. I wouldn’t have to worry about Property Tax, Homeowners Insurance, etc.. In the future, might be able to purchase land and/or go up to a bigger size.

Cons:. Super small or at least feels it. Might lose inside Washer & Dryer. Cats might lose a Cat Tree and would have to get creative with litter boxes.

A Good Day & Florida

So, today was good.

Cin took me out to a few stores. Plus, I felt good about helping a Homeless Man. He was Shakey and had a hard time walking to the car but I watched him open the bag and immediately drink the water, I’d included. I bought lemon, sparkling water just to put in the Homeless bags.

I’m sure by now, most of you heard about what happened in Florida. Can you imagine? Truthfully, I have a weird feeling it is Terrorist related especially when most everyone there was Jewish. Plus, even the Mayor said, the Inspector had been there the day before and other buildings older than that, haven’t collapsed. My heart and prayers go out to all affected.

Healthy Or Sick

Today was bad. I had a Sinus Headache from Hell and slept most of the day. Ordered some Zyrtec online which should be delivered any time now. I sure hope so. I Need to get to the store, tomorrow!

I used to get Sinus Infections all the time, but, it’s rare I get them, now. Actually, it’s pretty rare I get sick much at all now… except Migraines, which isn’t really considered sick… since I don’t experience a lot of stress, anymore. Learning about and applying Boundaries has been amazing for me!

I am considering trying Botox or something again for my Migraines. I think I only tried that once or twice and that was a long time ago, yet, it’s almost a lost cause as, I feel as if I have tried almost everything and there is no cure. I would think since the stress is better; the frequency would be too, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I get about 14 per month. A really good month is single digits!

We got more rain today with thunder, which was nice. Still probably not enough to help our drought, but it was pleasant to watch come down.

Prompt = Father

This Prompt it brought to you by Peckapaloosa over at The ConfusingMiddle.com. If you haven’t checked out his site, you should! After, you read this Post…and, be careful! No running with scissors or knives… Okay, now that that’s covered:

I am not really into Father’s Day anymore, since my Father has passed. My Mother is also gone but I have friends who are Mother’s plus, I am an animal Mother..but, I digress;

Growing up as a Catholic, we used to call our Priest, “Father” which I now know is totally wrong, for many reasons.

The only one I call and actually have for a “Father” is God! He is the Father,Son and Holy Spirit. He is here to listen when I need to talk and teaches me patience, as well, as the right way to live. He understands me and we have a good relationship. My earthly Father, I called, ‘Dad’ and you bet I miss him. I was a ‘Daddy’s Girl’ but, I am still Christ’s Child and he has taken over since my earthly parents have gone.

Truthfully, I believe they should call ‘Father’s Day’ ‘Dad’s Day’. But, that’s just my opinion.

Covered In Cream Soda

Cream Soda is delicious! Except when you’re wearing it. I opened the bottle and it went crazy! All over me, my bed, my phone, my glasses!

Thank God for bathtubs, clean water and bath oil.

Today wasn’t the best. Tried nursing a headache without Imatrex. Slept over 4 hours. It’s still here. Think it’s part sinus. I only get so many Imatrex a month so ..

Other than that, I have to laugh. I am a 56 year old woman who still enjoys Sesame Street. Today was brought to you by the letter P and we learned about Patterns, as well as, learned a new dance with 3 moves. Plus, Cookie Monster ate an Apple, which is totally wrong…It should have been an apple flavored cookie!

Missed Yesterday

Hey Guys,

Sorry I missed, yesterday. May as well be honest and say I forgot until it was to late. I didn’t forget thinking of you; just the writing part.

Still debating on which way to go when I sell this place.. Another mobile home or a Travel Trailer. Either way, I need cheap to no space rent.

The wind is back in force which doesn’t help my sinuses or Migraines especially when I have to walk to the mailboxes.

Question & Friends Good News.

My BFF finally received the last part of her Birthday gift, yesterday. The first idea never showed up so I ordered something else and it still came late. But, it finally arrived and she loves it. It’s an Achmed t-shirt from Jeff Dunham, ‘Minding The Monsters’. She didn’t remember telling me to get shirts a size smaller so she can use it for weight loss motivation. Another friend got a new job! I am extremely happy for both of them. I live vicariously through my friends.

Onto The Question:

If you could know how you were going to die or when.. Would you want to? My answer is No! If I knew I was going to get shot by a gun, I would freak out every time I saw someone carry one. And, if I knew the exact day, I would be a basket case, the day before.

As Christians, we look forward to meeting Jesus, but are we really ready to go any time? I mean, Yes, I want to meet Jesus, yet, I also want to stick around longer.. watch my cats grow up, maybe meet someone and marry again, go back to teaching the church children, move into a better place, etc…

My Bible Study Group all agreed they do Not want to know the date or even how. What about you?
