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.

Family Toxicity

It’s bad enough when you have to let go of “friends.” but, it’s really sad when your family members become Toxic.

I used to get really stressed when a family member was upset with me. I always wanted to feel loved and accepted. When my parents died, I pretty much figured we would all go our separate ways. However, Sis #2 has stuck by, for a while. ( I will call them Sis #1 and #2 now, for anonymity).

I think she and I really went downhill after my Divorce. She got involved in a disagreement between a friend of mine and me.. which had absolutely nothing to do with her and became friendly with ex-friend; even going so far as believing her lies about me, while at the same time, getting upset with me for wanting to be Facebook Friends with a friend of hers.. which I respected and took back my request.

Sis #2 also spied on my last blog for 8 months then got upset when I figured it out… which is why I started this one. She gets upset and either tries to guilt me or gives me the silent treatment. She hasn’t talked to me except one word texts since screaming at me over the fact that I was getting the COVID Vaccines.

The latest is a text today regarding money left by my mom. Without going into detail, the text was snotty, so I called her and of course got her machine. I stood up for myself and now she is accusing me of getting out of control and needing psychological help! I am not allowed to have an opinion when it comes to her!

Suffice it to say, we are probably done. At least, it’s back to the silent treatment which I am used to, anyway. It’s a bit sad because it is family, but, you can’t pick them.

I am glad I believe my parents are resting until the Rapture or until God comes back. Because they would not be happy with what’s happening with our family, down here.

Missed Friends

So Annoyed!

  Missed the Friends Reunion because I don’t have HBO Max.  Even signed up for Hulu after reading that you could get HBO Max as part of their free trial; but alas, you can’t.  So, now I have to wait for it to be shown on YouTube. 

Watched the Happy Days Reunion on YouTube that I missed, last year.  Actually, I only missed it then because I wasn’t going to donate to the Democratic Party in order to watch it, but, I digress.  It was okay. Brought back some good memories.

That was when shows were wholesome and cool, plus, most had life lessons. I can’t stand a lot of the crap shows today. Most of the “Reality” shows really aren’t “Reality”.. which is just false advertising.

Maybe that’s one reason I like True Crime. You can’t make that stuff up.

People Are Weird

It’s not midnight yet, so it’s technically still Monday and I just recovered from a Migraine from Hell with extreme nausea. Had to wait for two hours before taking Imatrex because my groceries were being delivered via Amazon..

Anyway:

Yesterday, I received a wrong # text of an interesting joke with a big woman dancing and a young girl running to her, crashing into her rear end, then bouncing away…made me think of my blogging buddy Garfield. That sense of humor fits right in….. along with, “Happy Mother’s Day, Titi.” I typed back “Cute..but, you have the wrong number.”.

Later, I get a call from a Landscaping company I have never heard of so I messaged “Can’t talk, text me.”. Now, it gets weird.

The text starts with “Hi”. I’m like “Who is this?”. he gives me a first name so we text for a bit. Then, he asks to call, I’m like “Go a head.”….. I mean he already knows my number.. .. So we chat. He tells me about him and I tell him about me but….his English is very broken and he is evasive to the point of lying on how he got my number. First, “From a friend.”. when I ask who, he says, “Doesn’t matter.”. Then says a different person gave it to his said friend without a name, saying he should call because I might be single…

Seriously, What? Like what bathroom wall is my name on? Lol….. Anyway, he asks for my picture and I am like, “You called me. You send me yours.”. And he kept saying, “You first.” We went round and round until it wasn’t funny anymore. He refused to send his picture and kept saying, “We meet?” and I’m saying “NO!”.

After ending the call, I played Detective….I am really good at it, by the way…Turns out, the guy owns the Landscaping business he called from, there are No pictures of him on the internet since 2014 and only one from then….. He wasn’t cute then so I can imagine what he looks like now. Plus, he told me he has lived here in the US for 20 years, but is still not a legal citizen!..from Mexico…..

It would never work for a few reasons;

The language barrier
The citizenship issue
and the fact that he is evasive and lying on how he got my number!

I finally got tired of playing games and blocked his number.

But, the whole situation definitely kept yesterday, eventful!… Lol

A-Z Challenge-R = Regift

Growing up, my mother..and maybe yours too…had a Gift Shelf or closet where she kept miscellaneous gifts she had bought, won or received that were useless to her.  She is the one who taught me how to Regift. 

A Regift is basically taking a gift someone gave you that you can’t use and gifting it to another person.

There are a few things to be aware of when doing this. You need to be careful not to offend the original gifter, as well as, don’t get caught and put yourself in a bad position.

Here’s what I do:

Say I receive a vase from K. It’s totally not me since I am not into flowers. So, I put it aside with a label ‘From K’. Christmas comes around and I think Hey, Jen likes flowers. She might like this vase. But, I need to consider; Does Jen know K? Do they both attend my church? Is there a chance their paths will cross? If the answers are No, I can give Jen the vase. Otherwise, I need to get her something else.

I also keep this information in a paper file. Also, be sure to check all wrapping for tags. Be sure the original gifters name is nowhere to be found.

Now, I have a friend who does not know how to Regift. She will give me a gift and after I open it and exclaim over it, thank her,etc..she’ll say “So and so gave it to me and I figured you would like it.”. Don’t Do That! There is no reason to reveal the information. That’s tacky. If I asked where you got it, it’s better to say, “I don’t remember.”.

As a last bit of advice, if the rules are to hard or time-consuming; Don’t Regift. I am sure a local thrift store would be thankful for your donation.

Miscellaneous Week Wrap Up

My washer/dryer arrived today but since nothing is simple, I can’t use it until Monday.  Apparently, it is a 220 volt and my last one was 110 so the electrician will be back to wire it.  Unfortunately, my handyman is charging me more for pick-up then the store would have done for the delivery.  Oh well.

Susy likes it, already.

The other night I had a dream that a friend of mine got married and didn’t tell me.  When I awoke, I called him.  Turns out he is gett

ing married and I will be invited.  Koontzfan made an interesting comment today that she finds it funny that I love to watch shows about food and dieting, etc.. when I have never been overweight But, I just like the knowledge as well as watching some of the food challenges like Chopped.

I was watching a show on YouTube today where Brits and Americans in the U.S.A switched diets and some of the Brits ate PB & Jelly Sandwiches for the first time. One girl was funny. She said it’s like Hell. If you went to Hell, they would serve it every day.

Paranoia

If you get bit by a dog, you might have fear around dogs for a long time. When you break up with someone, it’s hard to trust again. When your blog has been invaded especially by relatives, it’s really hard to start over. This is why the gmail address, blog title and even name I use is completely different. I am terrified of dejavue.

My sister and I are finally communicating again. My family is crazy. At least my sisters. They don’t believe I should have my own thoughts and opinions. They especially don’t agree with me sharing my views and experiences with strangers. Plus, it seems like we have small bouts of peacefulness between us but, you are always waiting for the pin to drop; one of my sisters getting angry at another over something and usually I am the Target.

I have always been the Black Sheep pretty much. My one sister was jealous and claims I got all the attention. I was born sickly and spent the first two years of my life in the hospital. I can see her side until her teen years. I have made some questionable relationship decisions in the past that also didn’t sit right with my family.

But, we are all adults now and need to act like it. Just stay away from what bothers you, even if it is a relative. My brother is the smart one and has always stayed out of the drama. .except when my mother died. She gave him Financial Power Of Attorney and me Medical Power Of Attorney. That’s a whole nother story in itself.
