Fresh Start! :)))

9:38 a.m. My motivation is back in gear.
  • I'm actually awake in the morning, for once. 
  • I got plenty of chores I can do today (Finally, something not related to the computer.) I'm thinking of writing, but I don't know what or if by some twist of fate, I'd stick to it.
  •  I still had the desire to eat healthy this morning.
  • I'm playing Neopets again. :P
  • I hope to update my blurb journal. 
I've been having terrible back pain the past few weeks. I blame the increase in sugar in my diet and theorize if I just eat healthier and eat less junk food/sugar, this problem will go away. :) We'll see of this is correct, should I follow correctly.

 Just like I believe the best thing to clear up your skin is to drink plenty of water, not chemically-laced moisturizers and agers that ruin skin down the line, anyway. Fact. :P

12:40 pm. Had a nice breakfast. Folded and put clothes away and got blurb journal updated. Currently have two sleeping cats trying to hog my desk and keyboard area...and laying on my iPod. x.x also got Elder Scrolls III for free, today. :)

2:24 p.m. Had lunch..and um..cake. A small slice. I did got some things done today and not others. Which is okay. If I have a tomorrow, maybe it can wait until then. :)

Failed at starting a bonfire earlier, lol. All I had was a lot of wind and tiny weak lighter.

Monday, March 25, 2019


5:40 p.m. Apparently, waking up in the morning isn't really cutting it these days. I slept until around 8 a.m. ish and was still too tired to deal. So I went back to bed until around 1 p.m.

My bed fell apart, that is, the wood parts, multiple times. Since I could find no wood glue, at last I put my trust in double sided tape and at least for the moment, it seems to have worked out fine.

My camcorder is working, THANK GOD! Cause up until an hour or so ago, I was convinced I had little shot of getting it to work by the time the concert rolls around. I'm keeping it charged and hoping it will work then, as well. :)

I know, I know. In this modern age, who uses a camcorder, anymore, right?

Well, tbh my iPod is not ideal for lots of video. I could clear up Gigs and Gigs off and still have to walk on eggshells with it to get thirty minutes of footage. *.* I mean, I plan on still recording with it, but I need a backup recording device as well. lol. It'll just involve having to unload as much as I can spare off of it to get a decent amount of concert footage/pictures. Unfortunately.

Also, my camcorder has low light capabilities. :)

Anyway, I did eat healthy today and minimized the sugar. I say that now, of course, before everyone has a chance to get at that extra chocolately Hershey's birthday cake of April's. Still, a little progress is better than none.

Worked on my Secondlife store, which had been left 'Under Construction' the whole weekend. :)))

Switched from my cute purple Betsey Johnson purse to Mom's hand-me-down Michael Kors purse. I like it. It's bigger. Although I do look at the Michael Kors bags as the 'middle class mothers' answer to high end designer handbags. Still, it's pretty spacious and that's what works for me. <3 Not unthankful. I may have to get used to living without that hand cross-strap. Lol.

I meant to fold clothes today. But who knows if I'll bother. The day feels kinda, over, even though it's rather short for me.

At least I got yesterday's, and today's entry in, which was important to me. I love recording my life. :)

I've got the trap remix to 'Little Einstiens' in my head, as well as 'Taxi Cab' by twentyonepilots, even though I've yet to learn all the lyrics. Lol.

6:57 p.m. Watching Buddy VS Duff with April, same episodes I watched with my Mom. <3

8:24 p.m. Well, pretty shortly after April migrated to Rob's room, and eventually so did I. We just had some dinner and birthday cake..and we were...but may still continue to at some point..continue watching Galavant.

Going Home! :)

11:44 a.m. Spent my morning playing with the puppy. :)) Watching docs on both TLC and 50 cent while Mom visited Joan for the first time in ages. 

Would’ve considered going, too. If I wasn’t still in bed when she considered going. Lol. 

Got my things together and Mom drove me to DJ’s. Currently sitting here with Grandpa waiting for him to get here. He’s got a small garage sale going on, but apparently no signs up. Selling stuff he won in bulk at the auction. 

Including things from iPad accessories to collectible Japanese toy scale soldiers. 

Then we can take my stuff and a twin bed frame home. 😂ðŸĪ—❤️😍 God provides. Praise and thank the Lord! Woot!

P.S. Also finally interested in starting to eat healthy again. Just maybe take it a day at a time, or week, I don’t know. Lol.

EDIT: To sum up this day:
  • Hung out with DJ and the kids. They played in the water hose. I tried Surge and chilled out with a Bluetooth speaker. 
  • DJ took me home and surprised me as well with an extra 30 bucks in case I need something. I was almost..kinda..blown away. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but the gesture to leave and then drive back just to give me money to help me out was too kind not to notice. Praise and thank the Lord!

He also helped me get the new twin bed setup. It’s been less than sturdy lately. But I’m dealing okay. I don’t have a box spring, so the bed is balanced on rod of wooden boards on a metal frame. 
  • April enjoyed her early birthday gifts. Especially her cane that cane from the auction. :) She calls it her 'Lucius Cane.'

  • I got stuff unpacked. Vacuumed my room with the new vacuum, and my keyboard, which totally needed it.
  • Hung out with my roommates as usual.
  • Watched the newest episode of SPN. 
  • Ate macaroni, while planning to eat healthier the next day.
That pretty much sums it up. ^_^

Another Happily Long Day.

7:45 a.m. We got errands to run today, or later this morning. Whenever Jami gets up. :P Mom's gonna wash up. I'll probably need to wash up. It's hopefully going to be another, not boring, day.

Watching Beverly Hills Pawn for the first time with Mom where they just bought an on-screen ring worn by Kate Winslet for Titanic. Now another has something regarding Marilyn Monroe. [EDIT: Fur  beaver coat] I'm an 'okay' fan of her, but my family thinks I'm a much, much bigger fan than I actually am. Which is okay. :) She's still cool.

I slept okay. Late, again, obviously. The fan was great, but I only learned that there are multiple aspects to why I couldn't sleep well.

  • Drinking Pepsi at bedtime. Obviously. Only recently.
  • Mom has to have the TV on to sleep. I generally default to SPN on Netflix. It's a combo of sound and blue light which is hard to sleep to.
  • I've always felt it a little harder to sleep if someone else is in bed with me, be it human or animal. I guess it's from that limited freedom to spread out? I don't know. If I ever get married, I still don't know how I'll go through life sharing a bed with a guy cause my body's comfort is always just a 'little' off with someone else in the bed.

Do pardon the complaining. I can still ride it out for a weekend. I just make a point of TRYING to know myself and why I am the way I am the best I can. Lol. I think writing around ten years worth of journals helped with that, lol.

Also, Mom said we may get to do the Goodwill thing, today. ^_^

P.S. It also wasn't a great idea to drink sweet tea, even diluted, on an empty stomach. Gives it kind of a burny feeling. O.O

8:01 a.m. Jami is up. Watching a Robert Downey Jr. doc with Mom at the moment.

9:46 a.m. Leaving finally. Also I get to spend the day running errands with Scarlet, which is adorable. (I know I sometimes spell it with 2 t’s instead of one.) Also, ðŸĪ— I’m doing entries on my iPod for today. God bless today in Jesus Name, Amen! God is able to do abundantly above all we ask or think! Woot!

11:08 a.m. Left Sam’s Club, on to Victoria’s Secret for a free stuffed puppy. ❤️😍

Also, listening to the Trench album. :)))

Far as I’m told the plan is to go to VS, home, then Wal Mart. Then HOPEFULLY the Goodwill thing comes next. ðŸĪŠ I might like that store a bit too much?

11:40 a.m. Leaving VS. We got my adorable polka dot doggie AND a nice yellow sweatshirt I can where to this hyped upcoming concert.

Cause I’m pretty much expecting to see a sea of yellow garments there and I wanna blend in. Besides. It was cute and on sale for 25. 😂😍❤️

Almost got some 14 dollar lipstick, BUT it wasn’t my ideal shade. Glad I tested first. 😎

12:30 p.m. Off to visit DJ. Yay, family time! I know I talk too much about shopping...but the family time is the real treasure here. So ya know. Praise and thank the Lord! In Jesus Name. Amen.

I really was meant to say yes.

Bonus GP is here!

12:47 p.m. I might’ve raided their yard sale a little. A few tanks and a pretty kimono. (Of which I wasn't spared strange looks from my Mom and brother, and called a Grandma.) But I paid a dollar for a 'Magic the Gathering' box. Hope April likes it. 😂

GP explained the package deals he got in the auction. 

1:02 p.m. Wal Mart. We were approached to sign a petition for raising minimum wage and we gladly did so. :))

Signing a ‘physical’ petition actually felt awesome. :)))

Have to check to forward to April and Rob. 

1:28 p.m. Mom got the kids outfits. Got some undergarments. A nice cheap vacuum cleaner. 😂 Praying it works and lasts for the price. ðŸĪŠ✝️ðŸĪ˜ðŸŧðŸĪ·ðŸŧ‍♀️ðŸĪ”

1:36 p.m. On to Red Lobster! And today I’ve got the aux cord playing twentyonepilots. Gotta get Mom familiar with the songs before going to the concert. 😂

1:56 p.m. Here! With DJ and the gang, too. :)

3:12 p.m. Going to Lowe’s with them. Then Staples. My wings didn’t arrive until near the end, and I couldn’t get mayo with my fries, but the food was delicious. Gift card happily spent and family time worth it.

4:23 p.m. We went to Lowe’s. I almost bought marble contact paper, but I decided I didn’t need it. So I changed my mind. 

Then we browsed Ollie’s with DJ and Maranda. They got some stuff. Mom got me a new pillow which was awesome. 

Goodwill is closed today. Mom wanted to skip Staples because she doesn’t want seafood stinking up her car. So, home it is.

To be honest, it has been a pretty full day.

Oh! And DJs giving me a twin metal bed frame he no longer needs. Just have to hope we can fit it in my room. They said it comes apart, so...yeah. 😂 We’ll see!

God blessed the day and I’m very happy with this weekend so far. 

I’m supposed to go home tomorrow. I have no idea what time. Don’t need to worry about it either. Just thankful for all this family time I’ve been getting. ❤️ðŸĪŠðŸ˜ðŸĪ˜ðŸŧ😆

5:15 p.m. Home and just about packed everything for me to go home tomorrow. Short of April’s things and a new Bamboo pillow. And my chargers. Which I’ll need. And laptop. I need, and plan/hope to add this entry to blogger and update from there. ðŸĪŠðŸ˜ģ

5:29 p.m. I can't change that there are two different fonts and font sizes going on in this blog for some reason. Gonna watch Buddy vs Duff for the first time. This looks like an amazing show.

Happily Long Day.

8:57 a.m. I didn't sleep last night. The air felt so stiff and uncomfortable. I know it's pretty wordly but, so not that great, but I feel like I 'had' to have a fan..or some kind of cool air moving on me, in order to sleep. The air has to feel like it's moving. It can't feel stiff. Stiff. Uncomfortable. Ya get it.

God have mercy.

Mom offered a solution to get a fan at first. Then she decided (and bear with me, her ceiling fan currently only runs with the lights on) we could just remove the light bulbs and voila. Air. 

I'm still pretty tired. Okay, a lot tired. I maybe only managed a few hours of REM sleep, and Mom was surprised still to see me up early, but I'd also feel kinda guilty for sleeping in to the afternoon. While that may be the norm at home, I'd be a little embarrassed to do that here.

I might still sleep, anyway. I need it. -_- AND my allergies are in full swing. Itchy water eyes, on the light side, and a burny itchy nose I keep rubbing. Not a great start to the weekend, but I don't regret the family time. :) Just so ya know. Mom loved that she surprised me by inviting me over for the weekend. It's nice.

While I'm still awake to remember, while there are parts of dreams I'd rather forget, some were worth recording. It mostly just involved wandering around shops. And there are two parts of the dream related to this.

So in one shop they had a 'really' old piano on display, and I dropped in some coins, like a donation. For some reason, I thought that was what people did. It was so old, as I noted through the crack of the partially warped/open lid, that there was a prone shriveled-looking skeleton literally infused into the old decayed strings with dingy brown looking cobwebs.

The owner walked over...and he was furious. Balding brown haired kinda heavy-set guy in a blue-ish gray chequed-polo shirt. Kinda short, but not shorter than me. For some reason, though the memory is faint, I'd say he could've passed for some 'James Gandolfini in the Sopranos lookalike of a lookalike.'

He came over, complaining about my disrespect of the corpse, and said it was just like 'someone coming over and doing...' and he tapped one of the old keys on the piano, barely moving one of the many dead strings.

I mean, I apologized profusely in a very quiet and mousy way, only to have him respond, with his shock, "I don't like your tone with me." Then him being fed up and walking off. Which didn't even make sense to me in the dream because I couldn't have been more small-voiced and apologetic.

There was a coin slot in the lid of the piano and for some reason, I went to drop a quarter and a couple dimes in again.

His partner, a mid-set white guy with some short gingery-hair maybe, looked at me with a great deal of pity. I handed him the coins like 'Would you...?' [Take this] and so he did.

Anyway, I think that's what happened. I'm having trouble making up my mind whether or not I had initially, in the start, actually tapped the key or did drop in a coin. Oh well.

I know I visited a piano in another store before this one. There was a rusted blue oblong looking key sitting atop of it that I tapped for sure.

Anyway, in the next store, and it doesn't sound like much, I knocked over some eyeshadows and brushes off the shelf and spent that part of the dream just trying to clean it up.

And now and then a passerby and two would help, despite the fact that they'd come away with the powder now staining their clothes. One of them was even wearing a black track top and seemed slightly amused over the fact that it was powder-stained now.

So yeah, that's pretty much it. I need sleep. lol.

12:16 p.m. I didn't end up sleeping. I played with the puppy and finished Avengers: Infinity War. Her reaction to the ending 'They better not have let it end like that?' More or less. Lol. I felt the same the first time I watched it.

We're making plans for today. The auction is definitely a possibility, which is awesome. Mom's looking into the drive in. We're going to get Bella's first shots at the vet! This is Bella, by the way:

We also may be looking at vaccum cleaners and storage boxes.

Today, Mom is also politely sitting through a TNT marathon of Supernatural. I could put it on Netflix, commercial free, but...they have their own account here now and I'd hate to spam it with my show. I save it for Mom's room, not the living room. Lol.

Also, been chatting up dudes on OkCupid. Working on getting more social. I'm still hoping to find the right guy, someday. Lol.

Looking to be a fun weekend. <3

12:34 p.m. Mom gave me a choice between bingo or the auction. I chose the auction. I think I'd have more fun. :P

12:50 p.m. So my remote desktop works a little slower cause of the distance, but it's still an improvement over struggling with it on a small screen vs. my Chromebook. :)))

12:53 p.m. By the way, Mom's almost got pot pies ready. Yum! <3

2:48 p.m. Ate. Played with the pupper. Surfed social media..quite heavily. Played Solitaire and Monopoly on mobile. Watching Pitbulls and Paroles. A chill day before we go head out for errands. ^_^ <3 P.S. My face is really breaking out these days. O.O

11:48 p.m. The update. We got to the vet around 4 p.m. and stayed until around 7 p.m. Then went to the auction from 7 p.m. until past 9. Got meatball pizza. Came home. Mused about my Mom and Uncle's 'wild child' childhood. Instagram. Netflix. Youtube. Allergies. Hit with OkCupid messages left and right. Yeah.

Finer points:

  • Bella was shaky any scared, only comforted after Mom gave her her bed to lie on. She got her shots and a check up. She pooed, peed, and spilled her styrofoam water  cup on purpose on the vet floors. She laid on my shoulder on the way there, at her insistence. She met her sister, who happened to have an appointment that day at the same vet. Also, she saw dogs bigger than her for the first time. I got pics and video of it on my Insta, which has, for some reason, ditched the embed option.

  • Got a snake cane (kinda rusting) with a hidden blade inside at the auction for about eight bucks. I'm not taking/posting a photo of it until the right time cause there's a certain someone who needs to be spared spoilers and I don't know how often she surfs my instagram.

  • Watching 'Across the Universe.' Member' when I was convinced that was the best film I ever saw?
  • Supernatural is ending in season 15. Next season. Sigh. Had to happen sometime, right?

  • Stranger Things Season 3 trailer is released and I'm kinda hyped.
  • We took the lighting out of Mom's ceiling fan so the fan can run without having to have lights going, so I can actually sleep with air circulation tonight.

  • I need to take some Benadryl.
  • I'm pretty close to wanting to ditch the unhealthy stuff and go healthy again. I'm sure of it. I'm kinda eager to ditch the facial bloat, I guess. I like being confident.
Looking forward to tomorrow. We're supposed to go run an errand in the morning with Jami at Sam's Club, and go to Victoria's Secret to get one of those iconic stuffed dogs. Possibly, hopefully, go to the Goodwill Outlet for a used clothing spree. :P Or gifting. Who knows? And maybe, either tomorrow or the next day, look at getting a vacuum cleaner. 

To Mom's surprise when she looked before, they were sold out. And it's kinda funny to me cause this seems awfully similar to what kept happening to me with the VCR. On multiple occasions, I was in the right place and time to learn I was not the only one who sought one. Something so seemingly simple.

All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
