Take A Break

Ghosts and Such

I wish I was 8 years old again, getting ready to dress up to go trick-or-treating.

I wish I had the excitement and anxiety I felt as I thought of the scares and treats I would receive. I wish i was mentally planning my route, so as to get the maximum amount of delicious candy.

Skip the old lady who gives out carob, go to the old guy in the wheelchair whose maid in a stiff white uniform would give out big bags of candy, served from a silver tray.

Fill up my BIG plastic pumpkin, run by the house to empty it, then go out for round 2.

Then when I was older, getting and joints when I would take my little sister out because she was to small to go out by herself.

I wish I was eight again.

Another View

Bobo and I were asked to go see the kids. When we got there, our lovely DIL took our birthday gift, opened it, thanked us, then ran off to another commitment. Which I don't mind, we had time to talk to our son privately. My son isn't sure how long he is going to stay married to her. They just moved in August into a big fancy house and are already a month behind. I wonder how long they will stay there. He says he's tired of fitting and also she spends money as fast as she can get her hands on it. I'm tired now and ready to sleep. More later.

What I Did Was Stupid

I did a stupid thing when I stopped blogging for a month over an idiotic comment someone left for me.

They have no idea what has been done to me because I don't post everything here. All I can say is if someone knew the whole story, they would feel ashamed for leaving that comment.

So now no one reads my blog. Well done, asshole!

I want to blog more. I know that some of my favorite bloggers stopped posting and I always wonder why they stopped and I wonder what they are doing now.

Well, I'm back to writing again and hope something I say will be important to someone. If not, at least it is important to me!

In other news, Bobo found a job but then before he could begin, the company decided on a hiring freeze. Then we got notice that his disability hearing is finally coming up, so we are going that route. There is no guarantee the job will ever actually materialize. The extra money for disability will come in handy.  I am hoping he gets approved.

I have been working on my flower beds, getting them ready for the fall. I don't want kids to trip over the mess while they are coming to my house for trick-or-treat. My seathorn buckberry tree has disappeared in all the overgrown weeds, but I have a few more seeds to start next spring.

I also got a surprise with some seeds I did plant. I got them through a seed swap I found on the Internet. I always send a dozen watermelon seeds in exchange for whatever they are offering. What I got was something that is illegal. It was growing like a weed, and I hated to pull the plants and shove them down the garbage disposal.  But that's better than going to jail! I just wish everything I planted would come up and grow as easily as this grew! I hope the people who sent the seeds enjoy their watermelons!

I have a huge bag of seed packets and I hope to be able to use a bunch of them next year. My yard will be very colorful if I do. I also want to grow some grapevines. I love grapevines. You can play with the vines but they have a mind of their own.

Is it Monday?

I slept all day, actually since Friday at 7:00. I had some funky sinus thing, I kept sneezing and coughing and I had a headache.

Similarly, I cancelled my  doctor's appointment tomorrow.

Why? My car tags expired at the end of September. I was stupidly looking at the inspection sticker which is due October 23, not looking at the tag which is expired. My doctor is in a low crime area, just a long way from my house. I didn't want to risk getting a ticket that would cost what my tags would cost, so I will go later.

I have money coming from ebay but they hold the money forever when you sell something. I will just get my tags when I get my check. I haven't driven a lot, just to the post office and grocery store. I guess my butt will have to stay home for another week.

My co-pay is only $5.00, but the ticket would be almost $200. So I will stay home and fester.

I need more money. I will run out of ebay fodder soon.

I need Lottery-sized Jackpot money.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

There is nothing on TV. I guess I will have to check out my Internet provider's website and watch some old episodes of Emergency!

I didn't make a ham.

What will I do this week-end?

I think I am going to cook a ham. It's a versatile food, I can make family-style dinners or sandwiches. It's not a celebration but hey, why not? It should last all week-end, maybe longer.

Saturday night, the church I attend is having a Food Truck Rodeo after services. I am still lukewarm on the church, but I checked one of the trucks out online. I have picked out what I am going to eat if I go. I might just stay home and eat ham.

One of my friends is having a party, selling something, 31 I think. I might go, I just can't buy anything. But she gets points for the number of guests, so why not?

I need to clean out my closet and get rid of things too big. It will make getting dressed so much easier. I have been doing it a few garments at a time, but that's not working. I need a few uninterrupted hours., vs. 5 minutes once in a while.

I need to return some overdue library books. Ooooops!

What are you doing this week-end?

I'm a bad penny!

I quit writing her because someone. left a nasty comment. But they were wrong, and I'm not going to let them drive me away. They can shove their comment up their ass and go to Hell. 

I am going to write about my mother. I have missed her. Her favorite show growing up was "The Patty Duke Show" and it comes on every morning. I watch the 2 episodes and I cry for my mother. I see what she wished for in the characters.

My mother had Alzheimer's. She passed away due to renal failure last year. She lived with my evil half-sister who took advantage of getting her social security checks. When my mother died on the 25th of Feb., my sister said if she had known she wouldn't get the check for that month, she would have put her on life support for 3 days. She also kept getting checks for 7 months after my mother's death and Social Security caught on, so she is paying it back now. 

She went from having a Hummer and eating out every night to having the Hummer repoed- or possessed- and filing bankruptcy and giving up her house. She now lives in a tiny rental. You can't convince me she didn't use my mom's check for her own crap. I insisted on no life support because it was my mother's wish. She also wanted to be buried in pajamas and socks, like she was sleeping. But my sister had her tarted up and she looked like a cross between Mrs. Doubtfire and an aging prostitute. She put her in a floral dress and pearls. She filled my mother' coffin with trinkets- playing cards with the deadman's hand, little teddy bears and loots of fake flowers. She gave me the wrong day for the funeral so I missed it. I had to get her permission to even view her. Now I think it has hit her hard and she is in a deep depressive state. 

I wish I had one more day with my mother. I did get to see the day before she died at the hospital. The Alzheimer's was gone for a few minutes and she had the gift of clarity. She knew me and my family. She told me she loved me. I kissed her and told her the same. I had to leave so she could have some type of treatment. When I left, I told her I would see the next day. But she died at 5:30 a.m., the time she used to get up for work. 

Please cherish your time with your mother.
