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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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?
This Challenge is over so, I am closing out my coverage and thoughts on Christmas. But, before I do, Zzz is a Scrabble word to describe snoring and sleep.
Anyway, let’s end this, shall we?
Presents have been opened, food has been eaten and guests are gone. Time to box up the decorations and take down the lights and tree until next year. If you went on a trip, you have returned and it’s back to normal life. If you stayed home, it’s once again time to clean before resuming your daily schedule. Some people look forward to going back to work after their Winter break.
All is quiet, now and you need a nap. You deserve it. Good-Night. Zzz.
And tomorrow is back to my True Life Blog on Monday through Saturday’s. I hope you have enjoyed this and look forward to doing it again next year. I wonder what my topic should be? Maybe, Halloween…..
We’ve all heard that Santa lives at The North Pole, but, does he?
The North Pole is the northernmost part of the earth lying diametrically opposite The South Pole. There is no land, there. It’s all ice floating at the top of the Arctic Ocean. Animals live there, though; including Polar Bears, Seal, Walrus, Arctic Fox and Reindeer!
The closest City to The North Pole is Logyearbyn/Svalbard, Norway which is halfway between Norway and The North Pole. It is an ancient, mining city and the administrative capital of the archipelago and it’s dedicated to research, education and tourism. It has 2,000 inhabitants with 50 nationalities. There are two main streets, hotels, sports stores and a supermarket. There are also 3,000 Polar Bear so there is high risk for attack. This area is one of the most protected territories in the world, and almost everybody owns a snowmobile.
There is another North Pole, city in Alaska. This one has Christmas year round. Christmas decorations, a store called Santa’s House, streets with names of Kris Kringle Drive and Mistletoe Lane. Nearby is the Chen Lake Recreation Area with beaches, nature trails and picnic areas.
So, I’m thinking, Santa may actually live at The North Pole or at least somewhere near it, but, not the actual one, we know.
Although, I’ll bet that’s where the reindeer stay during the off season; especially Rudolph, as The North Pole experiences total darkness from October to March.
I think a key requirement of believing in the non-biblical aspects of Christmas such as Elves, Talking Snowmen and even Santa Clause is having a good Imagination.
Who was it that ruined or tried to ruin your belief in Santa Clause by telling you he isn’t real?…. Before you go blaming me, I am confirming or denying nothing! I refuse to ruin anyone’s beliefs…. Truthfully, I don’t remember when or how I was told or gained knowledge. I know at some point Santa’s presents stopped coming. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean he isn’t real.
Maybe he focuses more on the younger set because they hang onto their Imaginations a little bit longer.
