I shouldn’t have to update a post more than twice, once for my grammatical mistakes and a second time because I forgot to add or expound on something!

5 times is a little much!!

Guess I’ll figure out this new and so-called improved app format for posting.

Since I’m on my phone 📱 more than a desktop 🖥 or laptop 👩🏻‍💻 and the work laptop I use 90% of the time has a key logger, I will usually be posting from my phone 📱.

I think figuring out how to add things will be my learning curve. Why the photos are no longer in line with the topics I’m discussing.

Even JiJi’s confuzzled! Yes, I made that word up! 😝

So Patrick bought me the Shaq grill. The cats bought me a charm. It was a nice weekend- I wasn’t on call and could sleep in and nap on Saturday. 😂 #Goals

After grilling steak on the Shaq grill I was only half impressed. The steak was over cooked, the temperature was difficult and I got burnt by the steam. When Patrick went to take it apart and clean. That’s the other reason we decided to return it!

1-I got hurt! Steam burns hurt!

2-the temperature wasn’t right, even with the directions and the steaks were over cooked!

3- there was oil/grease from the steak on the insides! The oil tray was easy to remove, yet difficult to put back in place! The oil was on the heating coils?!?!?! and that’s when we both decided it was being returned!! But seriously the Steam burn 🔥 was the first thing that ticked Patrick off- I GOT HURT, COOKING! On a product I shouldn’t have gotten hurt on! And yes, it was level on a flat surface!

Yay! For Sam’s Club! Yes, we’re Prime Members! Buying in bulk is smart! Costco is not worth the price of membership for US! To far away, overpriced food and multiple reasons-which sucks because I know they’re good to their employees!

But Sam’s has real food-that I can cook, that’s good quality in bulk and reduces our carbon footprints 👣 cause we stock up and go to the grocery store less!

Plus they’re 100% guarantee is amazing! Patrick returned the grill from hell, without the printed receipt and they looked up his purchase on the computer 🧑‍💻 and the money 💵 was returned on his card. Easy Peasy! He bought us other food items while there.

At this point and after the ordeal at the nail salon in Muncie. TNails, 20 years I’ve been going there and NOW, they’ve chosen to argue with me?! My manicurist quit! Wages are awful! We’ve given her 100.00 dollars in tips to help her! But yeah, she quit! 😭 so I saw the third in charge and she didn’t do bad until I informed her that the product she used -who markets dip and polish together for hands/feet, didn’t match! And she lied about basic science! “The polish oxidized in the box!” *it’s a new unopened in a sealed box polish!! Where and how did this oxidize? OMG 😳 stop lying 🤥

My toes were red my nails were pink! They were ALL supposed to be pink! So, she started painting OVER THE RED! WTH! 🤦🏻‍♀️ seriously 😳 no, just no! I asked to have the toe polish removed and just repainted with a pink. Reasonable in my opinion! But that’s when she was arguing with me and then Patrick! Yep, that’s when he said we’re going elsewhere! Bye 👋🏻 bye 👋🏻 TNails

So yeah my Mother’s Day weekend was overall nice! I enjoyed spending time with Patrick and then playing with the fur kids. 🐈‍⬛ JiJi and 🐈‍⬛ Isis.

And I did like the concept of the indoor grill. What’s your opinion on the Ninja Foodie Grill?

Have an amazing day!

Aloha 🌸🌼🌺🌸🌼🌺

Okay, so a bit ago, Patrick showed me some video’s and Virtual Girl, AI Angel or Angelica AI interested me. I’ve been following her on youtube, TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram. I’m not on Twitter as much anymore. Just me, it started getting overly dramatic. I don’t need that in my life, I’ve got more than enough drama on a daily basis, thank you very much! so anywho, I just really enjoy watching an AI react to people and she can be salty! Love it! this is interesting and I haven’t watched it all through yet but wanted to share it with everyone here.

I hope to start writing/blogging again, I do miss the stress relief it gives me. I just don’t like bitching about things, I’d much rather be upbeat, however, I think I’m going to start posting my real feelings about things too! just you know, cause bottling them up is what got me 2 heart attacks and that lovely triple heart bypass surgery! LOL

stay safe and wear a mask, don’t be a plague rat!

Whooop!

Last night, I scheduled all this week’s IOTD’s and lol now they are surprises for me too. Yep, after I schedule them and then get some sleep, I do forget what I’ve scheduled to post-image wise. I’ve also scheduled this week’s Stargate Rewind to post on Friday around four o’clock. 😉

I prefer being prepared.

 

flashback to Friday’s fun… :P

2 Comments

So I said I’d blog about what happened, etc.

Early morning, up and at ’em! Well I was. Hubs was dragging a bit. We finally got on the road, and then we hit rush hour traffic in Indy. (I wasn’t allowed to say, ‘I told you so.’) So we were running late to my first appt, and missed it completely. No worries, my doc ordered it done again-blood draw, and so it still happened. And then the next round of tests started, X-rays, and a lot of other fun stuff. ugh 😦

Anywho- I’ve found out I have some more tests that I’m being scheduled for, and then a surgery asap. Yeah, I should’ve had the surgery right after the heart attack. Um oops! ~sighs~

Then we were heading home, made a stop by dad in law’s and he was nice. (Shocked the hell outta me!) And then once again on the road again, only thing is, the car started acting up- hub’s car, not mine. And then we stopped on the side of the road right outside the town we live in. Yep, fun fun fun… anywho he took off running to the house about 1.6 miles, and then he drove my car to the tow truck/mechanic’s shop. Yay! As I’m waiting on the road, I’m watching everyone drive on by. NO One stopped! And then, as I was getting all…kersplutzed, and being cheered up by face book friends, a police officer finally stopped by. He called the auto shop and asked them to hurry up the tow. So that was nice. And he was nice, he was wearing some of the Wounded Wear clothes, yeah, he’s a fellow veteran too. Really nice. He stayed with me for a bit to make sure I was okay. Women alone on the road, not a good thing. Especially when I told him what my friends were doing to cheer me, are there zombies? Do you have a defensible position? He was cracking up with me. I had informed my friends, good news; it’s not raining, snowing and no zombies. LOL So yeah, we started talking about my chances if zombies did show up. BTW hubs has informed me, in this area, they’d be the slow stupid zombies, I’d be fine if I kept my mouth shut. LOL 😛

So in a nutshell, that was Friday! lots of tests and a surgery being scheduled, dad in law being nice (still freaking me out), car died and is currently in the shop, and then when I made it home, I was out of it. Sick. Oh yeah, my doctor did tell me I was sick with a bug, but didn’t prescribe any other antibiotics. ~sighs~ Saturday and Sunday, I was in bed the whole weekend, my body hurt, my temp was up, and then it went up even more, and yeah. So once again, no writing on my nano was accomplished. ~sighs~

Today power is out at certain places, lots of wind damage that we saw driving in this morning. And some schools were on a two hour delay. Please be careful out there.
We’re commuting and boy is that fun. LOL I have to be at work early this week, so hubs had to get up early and it was a giggle fest in the car, we were being silly and arguing over stupid stuff. Mainly that I wasn’t driving like he would. Oh well… 😛 And I have a ride to his business later, and I have two hours there to wait till he gets off work. So reading or writing?? Guess? LOL The one thing I don’t like about being a one car family, the wait times, esp when I still feel yucky sick.

Anywho, that’s been the flashback and I included in the weekend. Except for Sunday when all the freaking alarms in town kept going off. They don’t blow them for just tornadoes, but any type of bad weather. It didn’t look that bad to me. Well after driving through Marion on the way to work this morning, damn, the wind was bad. Signage out all over the place, roofs turn off of buildings, trees broke in half all over the place. ugh…

Please take care, drive carefully!

Life changes in a heartbeat…–^^–^^^—^^

so on my last post, I was avoiding the cranky people and getting used to my new schedule. Normal day…

and then at lunch I started having issues concentrating, I was playing it off quite well, no one noticed. Which in hindsight is fairly scary.

And the day was going on, and my issues were getting worse. Oh well…work goes on… until…

I scare the crap out of a person, and end up calling my Nurse in the building…I think I’m having a stroke??

So I told who I had to tell I’m leaving, and went out side to my car to wait on hubs. No, no one at work offered to drive me to the VA ER!! yeah… Now one of the girlies walked me across the street to Marion General Hospital who was NO help! They wouldn’t pre-cert my treatment with the VA, and I’m not paying their prices. No just no.

So Hubs walked in, got me in the car, drove me to the hospital, and no I wasn’t having a stroke, I was having a Heart Attack!! THE REAL DEAL! Thank the Goddess he got me there in a timely manner. The doctor told me that it would’ve been nice to have me even earlier, if someone would’ve driven me there even ten minutes earlier. hmmm?

So anywho, with certain heart issues, and other complications, the VA hospital was not equipped to take care of me. And oh hell no, I’m not accepting Marion General, so off to Fort Wayne it is. Lutheran, and omg! Really a great hospital- whoops getting ahead.

So now then, lots of ambulance rides now. One to Marion General, cause the local ambulance can not transport me to Fort Wayne, ummm so sort of union or blah blah blah rules? I don’t know. So I’m waiting on an ambulance from Fort Wayne to come get me at Marion General. And the rude nurse at the VA told the ambulance drivers that I was a Bitch!
~ back story, I didn’t see the need to get completely naked to have my chest monitors on. YEAH! She wanted me Completely NUDE!! NO underwear! And I’m the bitch? Please… ~ end of back story
The ambulance dudes actually thought I was quite funny! And they know she’s a bitch. So normalized and validated. LOL

Then the Fort Wayne ambulance arrived and woohoo! They were awesomely nice. The EMT’s helped take care of the immediate pain from the migraine side effect that was induced from the heart medication. Couldn’t avoid it, kinda needed it. And they were able to take care of it. Yay!! And by 1am I was in the new hospital, oh yeah, at this time, it’s been four hours since I got to the ER in Marion.

They got me in my room, woot, it had already been assigned to me, and then some paperwork, but the VA had faxed a lot of stuff and then the EMT’s had a packet for me too. So not a lot of paperwork. I got to get a little something to eat, and then take some meds, hooked up on more monitors, and then finally sleep….
And thus started my week in the hospital, but honestly I’m glad it was Lutheran, the doc there did more in one week then my VA clinic doc in five years!! And he said that the symptoms had been there, including the mini-strokes I kept having…. uh yeah! scary huh? So he fired that doctor and I have an appt with a new one in the Indianapolis VA system!!

The one new diagnosis I have, I’m not to happy with, but I knew it was a matter of time. Sighs… so I learn and I live with it. I’m diabetic now. And as I’m writing this entry, I had an issue with low blood sugar, it dropped all the way to 50. I was wondering why I was all…wha…ooog…. loopy. So I checked it and uh yep, I need food. That’s the hardest thing for me to do. I’ve always been told I’m to fat, stop eating. So now, I have to eat. And I’m not fat…I’ve lost over 150 pounds in the past six months.

After I was discharged from the hospital, Patrick took me shopping, budgeted, and my credit card. I have dropped over 4 sizes! Jeans, shirts, dresses, etc. Yeah, even my lingerie… so I’m throwing away all my fat clothes. And trying to throw away all those damn thoughts!! That’s going to be hard. I’ve had that record on repeat for years and years.

No more hiding behind baggy clothes, no more hiding behind black.

Any who, I have one more thing to say, I have way more to say, but I’ll save that for another entry!!

this one is important!! And you should check your facebook settings, mine have been changed to even stricter now.

Some of my friends were tagging me in posts to send me thoughts, etc. Nice. thank you.
but…. it caused those low life scammers the chance to spam/phish my friends. Of course if you were ignorant enough to believe some random stranger, they you might …. really??? Fuck! Next time, call me! Text me! Fuck! Email me! You KNOW I CHECK THAT HOURLY! No seriously, my real friends know to email me. Fuck!!

Okay, one more thing… and then I’ll publish this entry! I understand you are worried about me, thank you so very much!! The only people that appeared to care, other than a few real life friends, S who got Patrick up to me, my family- the one’s that didn’t yell at me! (yeah, that’s the other entry…) and my facebook friends! Ya’ll Rock! But…. one of you lost your fucking mind! I’ve blocked your phone number from my phone, Patrick’s and the home phone, you’re denied!! Honestly, I didn’t answer my PM’s, or my texts, or my phone because I was ASLEEP!! Doing what the doctor ordered after I was discharged. EESH! They lost their fucking mind, cause it was after midnight, and they called Patrick’s phone. WTF??? They told him they were about to call the local authorities, okay, that’s a bit of an overkill. Ya think? omg!

So Please I do appreciate you caring, and taking the time to post on my wall, etc. But people let’s use our common sense, I understand it’s more like a super power these days, but please. Think before going off on the deep end. And stop asking if I’m mad at you because I haven’t replied to this or that… Um…. Hello. If I am mad or upset with you, cause I don’t get mad, I get upset, and I get frustrated, which I am, but I think it’s highly understandable.
Yes, I check my email like hourly it’s a horrible obsession. I don’t obsesses over Twitter or FB. And if I have a lot to say, check here! DUH! And with the exception of health issues, I usually reply to important emails within 48 hours, or at the very least with a sentence that I will get back to you. oi!!

Okay that’s it for now. I’m not going to do play by play of my treatment, some of it wasn’t fucking fun and I really don’t want to remember my surgery and my procedures. The after effects were so not fun!
But if you have questions, and I consider them good, or genuine concern, than I will answer them. Okay?

So now ya’ll know what/where I was last week, in a hospital bed surviving a heart attack! Sweet; Operation Awesome Heart! Hey it’s my operation I can totally name it! LOL
Seriously people, if I lose my sense of humor, you might as well bury me.

So I’m learning about diabetes, and exercising, going through my closets- yes, again!
A huge thank you to my Fairy God Father, you are fucking Fabulous and I love you!! ❤
And updating my blog, and seeing what I can remember and what is gone. Ah, it is what it is.
Please take care of yourselves, punkins.
oh don't worry, I won't be posting my blood sugar readings-that's weird, but I will let ya'll know if I have a bad issue. Okay that's it for now. I'm going to go sit outside and enjoy the nice weather and read. HUGS!!

Warning!
I haven’t had a good venting session blog entry in a while… but yeah…I’m still going to try and put a positive spin on this rant. Because when I whine, I DO get organized and I DO do something about it.

How many people does it take to implode a group? One
Distrust mainly. They said, she said, he said, and so on and so on. OI!

How many people does it take to get a group back to status quo?
All of them!!

However that is NOT what happened. I am not answering PM’s to any individual person anymore, about this subject, I’m just going to go public. Easier in my opinion. And blah blah blah…. no names of any particular person is named. So. 🙂

So what did happen? a group imploded.

The mod’s got together and discussed it, we had three options; ban the person, write up guidelines-to bring the group back on topic, or three- push the button & turn off the lights when the last person left.

We went with option two first. Which backfired spectacularly! So many people started whining, bitching and “What happened to free speech?” Well what happened to the camaraderie, the friendliness… and the ‘attacks’ on people that were done via PM’s. Hmm? Ya’ll didn’t see those did you? NO! And honestly it wasn’t meant to be seen by you, or the person would’ve had the cojones to put on the group itself.

anyhow, that really is the gist of it, we tried to save a group, ppl railed back, and I’m more than willing to list the guidelines we had listed. I personally think they should be used on a number of groups, but that’s my opinion.

And NOW that’s the end of it. I have more important things to do with my time, then moan and groan over a facebook group. Yes, it’s nice to have friends. But at the expense of my sanity- repeated email’s, PM’s, ppl posting on my wall…some were demanding, and I deleted and unfriended them. I don’t take well to demands!! Oh right, I don’t know anyone who does, actually.

And if this post makes you want to unfriend me, then so be it. However, let’s look back at the “What happened to free speech?” And fyi, I’m not hurting anyone…unless the person has a guilty conscience. So…blah blah blah! And that’s it!!

fyi, I do reserve the right to delete flamy remarks on my blog.

Have an awesome day! And let’s get back to the fun!! No seriously, F U N ! I need that.

Happy Wednesday!!

And what a beautiful morning it is!
No entry yesterday, I was busy! But I do have wonderful WoohOOOO News to share!! 😀

I received the ‘official’ email, and I am now one step closer to my Licensure!! 😀

yes, lots of exclamation points this morning, I’m all twitterpated. lol

In other news, today is an early Friday, I have tomorrow off, and then my four hour friday. I’m feeling fine at the moment. 🙂 And today I work till six o’clock. So yeah, feeling FIIIINE! smirks

And in a brief app review, I finally found a great radio app for the iPhone. Tunein Radio, the streaming is awesome, no buffering! No song song song…bzzz bzzzz bzzzz… and then silence. And this app has stations from all over the US. I’m loving it. I really do prefer 70’s music, and I have over 100 stations to choose from, at the mo I’m listening to 181.FM Super 70’s. And I’m groovin over the playlist. lol 😛 One of the options is the ability to fave your station, and then you can fave your songs, and you have the option to buy the song in app from iTunes! Sweet! There is an option to buy a more something or other version of the app, but for me. The free is working and I don’t have to buy a subscription to listen to my music.
For me, having an app that streams the radio for me is awesome. I can’t get a regular radio to work in my office. I can’t get the internet versions to play on my work comp, and then let’s not get started on why nothing wants to come through my speakers. OI! and yes, they are plugged in, turned on at the speaker, and the volume knob is turned up. Still nada…. IT shrugs at me. So this app is perfect for me.

Next app review post soon, I have downloaded some really fun free photo apps, and a disney game. I know! LOL

I’ve also posted two of the July calendars on the photoblog and I’ve gotten over, kinda, what ticked me off the other day, and I’m working on two more. One for my guy friends, some girlie hotness. And then one for the Joe Flanigan loves!! 🙂 My bunnies and Snookums asked me very nicely. LOL At least they didn’t threaten to beat me. LOL

And now have a Beautiful Wednesday!! Enjoy the cool morning, and the bright blue skies!
Allonsy!

Good Happy Monday!

And for some, it’s a short week. For me it’s going to be fun week. 😛 I’m on night’s this week, so… 8 hrs, 10hrs, 8hrs, off!, 4 hours!! And bonus, I’ll get holiday pay on the day I’m off for ten hours! Suhweet!! 😀

This weekend, the migraine decided to kick it into overdrive, and I was miserable on Saturday night through most of Sunday! I used my own coping skills and was distracting myself by reading, finished the first Atlantis book, and started on the second. woot! My head was pounding too bad to think of doing any writing, or serious discussion with anyone. And I got so cranky that I just stayed off of FB. I’m of the mindset, if you’re intoxicated, or extremely bitchy, you shouldn’t be on Social Media. Now with that being said, I’ve read some fascinating posts from some friends that are online when they are intoxicated, and omg what they write. Someone should really take their online privileges away when they are three sheets to the wind. But that could just be me. lol

Does anyone have any plans for the fourth? BBQ’s, fireworks-please be careful if you’re doing them yourself.

I’m going to be working on finishing up July’s calendars, we’ll see if I do more than one or two. 😛 And hopefully I’ll be able to do some writing this week as well.

Ya’ll have a great Monday!!
