Birthday Blues.

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.

  1. April took me to the post office to pick up the package. It was crudely wrapped around the middle with masking tape.
  2. The truck wouldn’t start.
  3. 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. :(
  4. I cried after we got a ride home. I also left a negative review on the sellers page and an email. 
  5. EA couldn’t tell me if the code was used or not. 
  6. 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.

  1. Packed my leggings on Secondlife. I’ve not listed them yet for sale.
  2. 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.

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!
