Friday night!

How the heck can my kitchen look sloppy & messy when I haven't even USED it yet, except to get mugs of ice water, for heaven's sake?? The big lighthouse at the top is something I bought about 18 years ago & had no place to put it but on my front porch...I must admit, it looks & feels at home here. (kinda like I do...)
Well, everything's out of the house now, & Tiff's having a garage sale tomorrow *fingers crossed for a lot of $$$*!
I don't get my home phone turned on here until next Friday, because there was a f*up with my order, and since there's never been phone service in this apartment before (whoever lived here before probly had cell instead), the phone company has to come to the building to connect it. There's already phone jacks here everywhere, so that's no problem. But I'll be okay, anyway...I have my cell phone that I've had forever for emergencies, like if I was out on my scooter & got the wheels stuck or something...anyway, I just started paying more attention to the screen, & it says I have about 555 minutes on it! So, heck, there's no problem there!
I got up today at noon...Truman didn't drag his lazy ass out here until about 4, cuz I realized he hadn't even come out here when Tif had the baby over here for a few hours. I got all worried and stuff & went back to my room to look for him. He was laying on the bed (still!), and rolled over on his back & stretched to look up at me as if to say "Yes?"
All righty then...I have a headache, so gotta go get a migraine pill & a couple excedrins (& yes, they're meant to be taken at the same time!). G'night!!

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

This is exactly how far I am as far as unpacking my books :-/. But, I knew this was gonna happen...the first old, obscure book I dug out a day before I moved here was a Stephen King "From A Buick 8"...very good!! I'm still reading it. But I read fast...I started it last Wednesday night, & now I'm on pg 350. It'll be done before I go to sleep tonight. All those totes & cardboard boxes are absolutely full of my books. Kev & Tif were over at the house getting the last stuff in the attic, and Kev said "She is just like you...I found a box of books up there from when you were little, showed them to her, and she squealed like a little girl!" ...Hmmmm....need I remind him she IS a little girl!! Well, I guess she is 26, but, she'll always be Mommy's little girl! :-)
We took Talan for a walk in his stroller up to the office, and around the whole place. This place is enormous!! I'll go out on my scooter by myself someday, and I'll get lost & be having to call 911! We ran into a lot of people that remember Tif from when she worked in the office. So now I know some woman is a twin, whose sister lives on a different street out here. And the one I met is Debbie, her twin sister is Debra. I went to school with twin guys named Willie & William! I came up with a funny nickname for Talan today..we were in the sun, & his hair was so red, I just called him Sunkist...but I won't anymore, that was a one-time thing! But it was funny....but if I ever hear any kid ever call him that, I'll take that kid out!!

well, most of my stuff is here...

Bottom right is the view out my bedroom sliding glass door..bottom left is my big bedroom closet through the 'master' bathroom, on top is the hutch from Mom & Dad's, and the clocks on the left are the two I ordered from Autumnforest's etsy shop, I thought the one with the green would be a great match for the wall over the hutch! And the other one is my haunted cemetery cloock, for the bedroom. So it's all starting to come together my mind, anyway...

I still don't have my phone was supposed to be last Thursday, but...oh well, my electric was on when they said it would be, my dish tv was on the day they said...out of the three, I'd rather go without phone than the other two!

Kim came over last night for awhile. She goes to an attorney today cuz her husband left her after a 24 yr marriage, & 3 kids...WTF's with guys?...well, I guess women do it too...the difference is that I'd have some shame...

I pulled the same shit on her last night that I did when we were 16 & riding around town one night in my car. She was in the bathroom p'ng, & I turned the light on...& the blinds were all the way open!!
Cuz when we were 16, we stopped by some woods, so she could p...I was still in the driver's seat, and while she was in the middle of that I turned the headlights on & started honking!! And she's still my friend!!

Home anew, jiggety-jig!

Lemme ask this not the single woman's perfect bedroom?? A big queen-sized bed (that I sleep diagonally across!). This is totally the best decision I ever made!

So, besides the bed, and the book of true ghost stories, a flat-screen tv, with the sliding glass door to the back pond and fountain. then there's the refrigerator/freezer...Cora lol'd like crazy when I told her why I wanted it there...humph! It's just for practical, what if I wake up at 3am & NEED some ice cream, for heaven's sake?? Seriously, this apartment is so long it's incredible. Truman's cowering, well, at first he was under my bed, then he got up into the inside of the box spring, so he's REALLY well-hidden!! lol! Now after today, he's getting a lot braver. Walking around, nosing into everything...being a happy cat again!
Oh, speaking of ice cream (weren't we? or was I just thinking in a loud voice??)...Tif & Talan & I were sitting on the couch today, and we heard music...The ice cream van goes around here in the apartments!! Time for bed...g'nite!

about 12 hours to go...

Yay!!! Kevin & Tiff & Kev's mom were here all day packing my stuff up, & I was able to pick out a lot of old clothes for the yard sale/garage sale she's gonna have in a couple weeks..but no, there will be no books for sale. They're all packed up & ready to go with me! Everybody's been helping & mostly doing it all for me...I feel like I'm totally worthless, & it really bites, but...
The two pictures at the top are of my new bedroom, and the other is the closet under the steps to the second floor apartments.
And if I'm not on here much for awhile, it's because I'll be reading...Kevin & Tif packed all the books I have downstairs & up...they took about 6+big totes...I asked Kev if I actually had a thousand books, & he said
"Oh yeah...". So I'll be doing a lot of re-reading...
Kim already knows I want her help to put stuff away & decorate, and she's looking forward to that...and she's good at that.
Well, I better get to bed, the movers are gonna be at Tif's tomorrow at 8:30 am to get the stuff that's over there from Mom & Dad's, then they're coming here for everything, good-bye house!

Saturday the 14th!

Holy's real, and it's MINE! The picture on the left is the kitchen (duh), & I'm glad it's small...I'm not exactly Wonder Woman in the kitchen...unless you want a big bowl of ice cream! And I'm standing in front pf the front door...straight across is the sliding glass door to the front. I'm singin' "Weeweewee" all the way home!
Tiff & Talan went with me to sign the lease yesterday, and go through it again...the carpet is brand new, was just done in the last couple weeks...(kinda gotta wonder why? was there a murder or something? lol! and it was just painted...hmmm).
I get new phone service Tuesday, a landline, which is exactly what I wanted...and it's with Frontier, who bought Verizon in this area & it's under $50/month with unlimited US & Canada ld...& I keep my same phone #, which has been mine since 1990!...something must be wrong here, you know? It's like I heard a comedian describe life once. Sometimes things go just so damn good, you almost have to cringe...almost feels like there must be a big rubber band around your neck, & it feels okay, but then you realize that somebody is pulling on the band, stretching one part of it...stretch...stretch...something else really good gotta figure that sooner or later, they'll lert go, or the band will break, don't you??? Either way, you'll be the one who ends up getting slapped! Oh well...I've pretty much lived with that expectation all my life, &, well, it hasn't happened yet, so...
All right, dinner just got here...barbecued nachos (reg nachos, but with barbecued shredded pork or chicken instead of hamburger~!)
See Ya!! BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

countdown to Friday the 13th!

This is my haunted cemetery clock from etsy. (thank you, autumnforest...i'm still looking at the abandoned house clock for the 2nd bedroom!)

I got all the papers & everything last Friday, so now I

know the address~! And more synchronicity...I'm Apartment L !

Lots of stuff to do this week--

I'm limited in what I can do from a wheelchair, but I am gonna clean this desk up & throw away a bunch of old phone books & junk like that..and I'm trying to figure out what phone service to get, since Time Warner doesn't cover them...bummer...I've had them for years for my cable, internet, & phone, & I never had any problems! The local phone svc is Verizon, soon to be Frontier, & I'm not wanting that, cuz they don't have a free ld plan...I know a cell phone would be a choice, but my hands are just too clumsy for a little cell phone & the buttons..but I'll figure out what to do. I was thinking about that Magic Jack thingy, but a friend called me today, & she had gotten that for her mom for Christmas, and she told me, yeah, you get your own phone # w/area code...& all the calls you make outgoing are free...however, calls in to that number are charged to the person calling you! Okay...scratch that off the I'm thinking Vonage...I dunno...& cable & internet are through the company that is like a partner with these apartments nationwide.

Well, I listened to the Ohio news at 11 tonight, but now I'm TOTALLY depressed...I missed the Ohio State Fair this year, and I just might die if I don't find the fair's favorite food this year...not because it sounds good, just because it'd be neat to say you ate it! It's called "Muddy Piggies" guessed it...chocolate covered bacon...Mmmmmmm...*sarcasm here*

My first sister-in-law called the other night again. That's SO neat! She's been married for a long time (she was my first husband's sister...well, duh, she still is!)...she looked me up on mylife a long time ago~! She and her husband lived in N Carolina, now they live in Wyoming! Cool! I'd love to do that!!
Okay, night all!!

I'm moving in next Friday! Okay, yes, I DO KNOW that's Friday the 13th...but I've always been a positive thinker...I tell people the obvious, that it may actually be their luckiest day just because when they know that's what day it is, they're extra careful!!

And she has me down for the apt I already saw, with the view of the fountain!!

...and does ice cream count as vegetarian?

The Isaly Shop had the VERY best ice cream!! I grew up around the corner from here, and I remember "Mommy" holding my hand, and we'd walk over there! I even remember the man that owned it. He was really nice & always was smiling...and if you weren't sure what flavor ice cream you wanted, he'd always show up with a little plastic pink spoon & let you taste as many as it took! I remember trying daiquiri ice cuz it was a neat color...the taste? Not so good...
I also remember Mommy walking me down to the train tracks to see Nixon! I might've been 4 or 5? Great memories!
We're all discussing the two 4 or 5 story department stores downtown, Frank's and Uhler's. Uhler's had creaky old wooden floors, and the money was sent upstairs through vacuum oral surgeon was up on the 3rd floor...the elevator always had an old lady working in it, to run you up to wherever you wanted to
Do you ever feel like breaking into song...ala Archie & Edith? That was truly the house I grew up in...I was Gloria!!!
All right...that's enuff for now...I'll get back...

are skunks vegetarian??

Everybody knows that even if I'm not writing about cats, I'm thinking about 'em, right??????
That last thing in there is a thing I got off a FB page, called 'Growing up in Marion, Ohio'. It'd be boring for anyone to go read that didn't, but since I did, I love it! I see so many names of people I know, and people in their 80's are writing their memories...and some of the names go on for generations! It's just neat...maybe it's "hick-ish", but I don't care.
I was thinking today about people that think it's wrong to eat meat, or meat products, and I remembered a story that someone told me the other night about something they saw happen while they stood and watched it! A person I know was out in the back yard, which runs up against woods & a cemetery. His kids were with him, and they were just watching the cute teeny little bunny that had just come out from the woods. A couple seconds later, here comes a big fat skunk waddling out of the woods too. It just lumbered over to the baby bunny, stood there for a second, then bent its head down and ate it in two freakin' bites!! Holy God! I've almost been wanting to puke when I think about it too much!
But, that's honestly how the world goes, isn't it? Nature works that way, and has since the beginning of time. I know that there are people that can't eat meat for whatever reason, & that's fine...but, really, don't think that if nobody eats meat, the world will be a better place, and there'd be no more violence!
