10:53 a.m. Past two days have been oriented around Secondlife. Both improving and promoting the store, and releasing new products.
Still going strong diet/health wise. Already seeing a little noticeable change.
Going with April and Rob to run errands for the day. ❤️
11:33 p.m. I just had some boiled peanuts, ahead of my eating schedule.
You see, I ate at 9-9:30-ish last night, which means that I should wait until 1-1:30 p.m. Ah well. 14 or so hours instead of 16 isn’t too bad. 😂
12:00 p.m. Arrived at Dawn’s house.
12:05 p.m. Aaliyah’s birthday present arrived in the mail. Thank God! I think her birthday is in less than a week. Lol.
P.S. Dawn has WiFi back! Last time we were here, she didn’t, lol.
This post is worth noting:
1:30 p.m. Going home! Well, that then the post office to get Liyah’s gift! 🤗
2:05 p.m. Stopped at Wal-Mart cause Rob wants to pick up some food. So April and I are just parked in the parking lot listening to music while we wait.
Made a pair of black leather leggings on Secondlife. I give them a solid B to A-. Not perfect, but definitely sellable. :)
The mesh was free from a group gift, at least. So it’s a win whether it sells or not. 🤷🏻♀️🤗😂❤️
I just need to make some more colors, if that works out well, before selling.
I have also been toying with the idea of whether or not to do SL Christmas gifts this year or advent stuff.
If I do, I usually start around this time so...we’ll see. God willing. 😂🤗🙏 It’s certainly hard work designing 25 new and awesome gifts out there in time, and later putting them up for sale. 😅
Adding entries to my blogger/blurb is also on my to-do list at some point. 😂
2:35 p.m. Leaving! 🤗❤️ Rob got quite a bit of stuff. :) Including habd soap, which I’ve been wish for for weeks now. That poor other bottle is so desperately watered down. 😬😳
2:55 p.m. Home!!!!
7:11 p.m. It’s turned into a bittersweet evening. I just ate. And I’m relaxed. Except for the lingering remnants of my disappointment, bleak as it sounds.
- April took me to the post office to pick up the package. It was crudely wrapped around the middle with masking tape.
- The truck wouldn’t start.
- I not only found the disk I ordered ‘new’ to be out of shrink wrap, but the disc was scratched and had a warped stain. :(
- I cried after we got a ride home. I also left a negative review on the sellers page and an email.
- EA couldn’t tell me if the code was used or not.
- Mom came to my rescue and agreed to pick me up Friday. She’ll buy Sims on my behalf for Aaliyah. I cried happy tears.
Though Wal Mart likely won’t have Sims 3, and if they have anything close to it, it’ll be Sims 4. Anyone who knows Sims knows 3 is better, but I’m sure she’ll be happy nonetheless.
- Packed my leggings on Secondlife. I’ve not listed them yet for sale.
- Talked to the seller, who asked if I missed in the description that it’d been used once.
I was picky. I read it over and over to ensure I was getting a fresh copy when I bought it. Nowhere could it have said it was used once, else I wouldn’t have bought it.
Once a Sims game is activated once by someone else, it can only be activated that time. Because it ties to an Origin account.
I asked, nicely I think, for either a replacement or refund. I’ve heard nothing back yet since.
God provided anyway. I trusted, and still do, trust him.
Hopefully I can fully open my heart to forgive both the seller and this circumstance. Life is just too important to worry about a scratched disc and 18 dollars, right? 👍
7:22 p.m. Speaking of God’s blessing, I just found a quarter to add to my savings/blessings jar, when I expected to find a penny. That’s saying something right there. 🙏😳😋✝️
These past few days have been both physically and emotionally exhausting. 😓 I think my cortisol levels have definitely been taking a hit. Hello, belly fat. 😳😬 Oi. I think too much, sometimes. 😂
8:54 p.m. Bed time.
