Monkey’s Day

My poor Monkey has had a rough time for a bit.

In order to see the doctor, she has to have Gabapentin, first. Last night was a minor struggle, but I got it in her without injury. Today was a different story.

She was struggling and dug her claws in my arm as Cin squirted the med in her mouth, between hisses. But we did it, and she didn’t really wake up until appointment time. Then, they had to give her something to put her out for a few minutes in order to do her nail trim.

Anyway, at least everything is updated and only one more med giving to go, for her trip for her vacation!

I noticed the top picture made her look injured, but I double checked and she is okay. It’s just the lighting.

I am going to continue to refer to this as “Vacation” for Monkey and Tara. I am in no way giving them up and we will be reunited as soon as possible! Plus, if I think of it any other way, I start to stress and feel guilty, especially when last night Tara put her paw on my arm, and for the last few days, both have been sleeping on either side of me.

Migraines, Moving & Holidays

It’s been a bad start of the month with Migraines. Between the Flu Shot, Cat Stress and a Dirty Heater Vent.

Yesterday was a Double! But no more side effects from the Flu Shot, I am using extra blankets, and no reason to stress over the cat situation. I have booked rooms (Kitty Cottages) at a Pet Hotel called, Animal Inns. They have great reviews and take all types of animals! I recommend checking out the website. Plus, Monkey and Tara will be able to see each other and have playtime together. Monkey isn’t much for sharing a room though, so I couldn’t book them, together. I am looking at this as Vacation Time for the animals!

Plans have changed a bit. Suzy is going to Cin’s a few days, prior. Monkey and Tara go to the hotel on Friday, and Saturday, the big move takes place. This is in two weeks.

Still debating on movers or help from workers in front of Home Depot, etc.. Can anyone in Las Vegas recommend reasonable local movers?

I can’t finish this without observing what today is:

Columbus Day

and now,

Indigenous Day

Any parades scheduled to celebrate either? Or, is it just another whole group of people that can be happy their group will be acknowledged per the Calendar?

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.

Getting Better

I was feeling better this morning and ready to go on a walk when I was suddenly worn out and took a 3 hour nap. So, I am getting better, but not there, yet.

I did laundry and set appointments for shots for the cats, as well as an appointment for Monkey to see the vet on Monday. I think she might have a UTI which she gets, periodically. I have to pick up some Gabapentin tomorrow for her appointment because the vet can’t touch her, otherwise. Monkey turns into a wild animal.. hissing and headbutting the carrier. It even freaked Tra out when she went with me one time, and Tra doesn’t freak out over much.

I also found a possible vet which will Board them at approximately $300 a month, I just have to decide if I want to go that way. Cin is seriously considering 5 cats in her trailer, but there is no room for the litter boxes.

I am also looking into paying over $600 for an apartment for a few months, but it can’t be much over and I still need them to accept all 3 cats.

Still lots of decisions to be made and a few more weeks left to make them.

Temporary & Flu Shot

I checked on a few Siegel Suites today, thinking at least I could keep my cats with me but they don’t allow 3 animals. I also tried The Suites which do but they charge almost $500. a week! That is absolutely insane! Tra said she would take them but she has 3 cats and a dog and doesn’t want to keep my girls separate from hers, which I think will cause serious problems. So, my final option is probably going to be boarding them at the vet for a while. It sucks and I feel bad, but I really hope something opens quickly so it won’t be for to long. I would like to get them out around the 16th or so and me out around the 20th, so I have time to come back and clean this place.

I went for my Physical today and while there, I had my Flu Shot. That was around 3. Within the last hour, I am starting to get achey and sweaty. Ugh. It’s 6 now.

Cin and I tried Panera Bread. We were going to try Pizza Rev but I guess they are permanently closed. Panera Bread was okay, but not overly impressed. My Flatbread Pizza was blah and their topping options are minimal for the price. I took a lot home and will fix it up with Garlic and Olives for next time. Cin wasn’t overly impressed with her Chicken Noodle Soup Bread Bowl either, but the actual Baguette served on the side, was fresh.

Fact Or Fiction

Today was busy.

I filled out an Application for Cin’s Trailer Park in case anything becomes available, I opened a PO Box to change my mail, I went to the 99 Cents store and got TP and a Hanging Skeleton, and Cin and I also had Pizza Hut before going to the casino. I had approximately $23. to gamble and made enough to pay some back to Cin as well as continue playing, which was a plus! The Buyer texted and wants to do the paperwork tomorrow to transfer the Title.

Now, for the Post Title -We arrived to my house to my neighbor Lu rushing over to warn us of the following:

Biden is shutting down the government so people’s Disability, Paychecks, etc will probably be delayed.

Biden is going to tax all bank accounts with $600. or more.

Jerusalem is starting one world religion and if you don’t have the COVID Vaccine, you are not a part of it. They are even building a church or something for this.

The COVID Vaccine is preparing us for a Microchip in our hand or forehead.

If you got the COVID Vaccine and still get really sick, especially from the new variant, you can be saved with plasma from someone Unvaccinated because they have natural immunity.

Pelosi passed a law that babies can be killed after birth if the mother doesn’t want it.

Afghan Refugees are being allowed in all different places including Las Vegas and are being caught with young children saying they are their wives.

This was a lot to take in and I don’t know what is true or false. Please share which of these you believe to be true and your sources.

Apple Prompt

The Prompt or word of the week at Confusing Middle is Apple. Before I get to it, why don’t you check out the Blog? It’s very interesting and fun. Tell him, Venus sent you. Then, Come Back!

As most of you know, I love to read. Mainly True Stories but a few Fiction Series, as well. The-Flowers-In-The Attic series is one of my favorites. For those of you who don’t know, it’s about 4 children who live in the attic of their Grandparents house and how they escape..or not..but, the books go further to afterwards and when the children grow up and have families of their own. ….What the heck does this have to do with Apples?..I’m glad you asked. Well, actually I am getting there….. In one of the books, a child gets a puppy and names it ‘Apple’! That’s the first thing that came to my mind when I read the Prompt. No, I am not going to tell you what happens to Apple or the children in later years. You need to read the books.

I’ve been sick today and almost went to the hospital. Okay, No, I just really considered it. It is mainly bronchial but with a sore throat, sinus and a terrible headache that wouldn’t quit. But, it finally did, and I took Mucinex, which I think helped a bit. Oh well..I was just thinking that I haven’t been sick in a while and it’s not like I had major (or any) plans this weekend.

Oh, and in case I forgot. Look what came yesterday!

I think it’s the most expensive pillow I have ever had. It’s Sealy with soft, Memory Foam on one side and Firm on the other. I think they call it ‘Alternative Memory Foam”.

3rd Time?

Here we go again!

The Buyers were denied in the Background Check so once again, they are getting refunded and the house is back up for sale.

But, I have not given up. I believe if I don’t do this now, I won’t have a deposit when something comes open. I also believe God is in control of the timing and there are good reasons for these setbacks.

I have already showed the home to someone, tonight and will be relisting it, tomorrow. I am still getting calls, anyway.

The guy, tonight, tried to low-ball me and asked stupid questions about things the park will and won’t allow that are beyond my control. He also took a screenshot of the Title due to wanting to make sure there are no liens on the property even though I told him, there aren’t. I finally said, “Why don’t you go home and think about it and I will think about your offer and put it back up for sale?”.

I do not want to take another Deposit and have to refund it!

Saturday Sharing

Good Morning Class,

Today is a bit different as, I thought we should share where we were or how we heard about the events of 9/11; this being the 20th Anniversary! Most of the bloggers I follow are doing blogs about it, but if you aren’t or just still want to Share, Please do so in the comments.

2001, and I had just gotten married to Idiot in May. I was a Switchboard Operator for the corporate office of Bally Total Fitness in California.

September 11th, I worked from 6 til 3. I hadn’t been at work long and was walking through the showroom when one of the televisions on the bicycle screen showed the first plane hit the Twin Towers. I remember a bunch of us watching in horror as the 2nd plane hit! I called my mom and woke her up, telling her to turn on her television set. Then, I called Idiot. Yes, I think I called my mother, first. Idiot worked for the Naval Base, as a civilian, and the news was saying they weren’t sure if the terrorists would go after the bases. Idiot told me the base was put on strict lockdown and it was a bitch getting on, even as an employee.

Every year, I watch the videos of the events with the people calling from the planes to the survivors stories. I continue to pray for the families of all affected.

That event led to my fear of staying in tall buildings for very long. An apartment penthouse has no appeal to me.

Busy Day

Since it’s my Payday (Yes, Disability is still a payment) it was busy.

Started off by paying bills, then to put the Down Payment in the bank; before going to Mattress Firm. My mattress now is fun, but, not comfortable. It bends to one side so you feel like you are going to slide off. Plus, it’s a bit hard..which might be affecting my Migraines. Anyway, Mattress Firm is having a sale and I got a Queen sized Memory Foam Tulo Mattress that is Lavender scented at like half price! Really excited, but am going to wait till I move to use it!

After that, it was lunch at KFC where I met a guy!

He has money as he owns the restaurant chain. But, I think this relationship is short lived because I would have to visit him. He has to monitor the customers and a lot of women come to see him!

After lunch was gambling and I set an amount and did pretty well sticking to it.

Cin has a bit of a problem in that every time we go and get ready to leave, she sees a different machine and goes, “I should really try this one”.; then spends more money, she really shouldn’t. While there, a Migraine started from the smoke in the casino so, I really needed to get home and take my meds.

Stopped to get my mail on the way back..(when I am with someone, I just have them stop, so I don’t have to walk.) and was shocked to find a package in the mail! My Secret Santa from Reddit is still at it and he sent the Purple Sugar Skull Bath Set I wanted!

This picture doesn’t give it credit, but, it’s amazing! Plus, I think there might be one more thing on the way. I think the guy spent like $200.00 on me!

The people who bought the house called this afternoon and are super worried about the Background Check. My manager is asking personal questions that should have nothing to do with their qualifications like, “Why are you buying a trailer when you own a house?”. Who cares? if they have the money to pay the space Rent, let them! Anyway, I understand being nervous but I am not going to panic.

I believe Gods’ got this and whatever happens will be his will. I can’t even set the timing. I just have to pray it all works out.
