Wishing All A Happy, Safe, Love Filled, Thanksgiving!

I wish everyone a very Happy, (Safe) if you are driving, Cheerful and thanksgiving full of family, friends, and finding what things in your life you are
 
 
Grateful and Thankful for. Although like some of you, it will be myself, Bella Doxie and Peanut, my daughters family can't make it up this time, and my son is preparing to start a new job, training next week so I won't get to see them. But, I am "thankful" and blessed to have my two grown children, my Grandsons and Granddaughter, A wonderful Son-In-Law, and I am full of joy with my 2 "Little Devils but they are my Best Friends" the two fur-babies, and am Happy to be able to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING to ALL of my "ONLINE FRIENDS"... 
 
so there are things to be thankful for on this day.... I will be reflecting on the past memories of Thanksgiving with my Aunts and Uncles, and Grandparents, and all of the cousins... and how the holidays were so filled with cheer, food, and laughter.... love all around... and wish all a continued "Hope" surrounding you....
 
 

"A Kind & Thoughtful Gesture" that is my "Blessing" for this Thanksgiving Holiday

A little something that was really "huge" to me yesterday. I had gone to "Wally World" to pick up a couple of things, and pick up the HUGE 22 INCH pot planter for my HUGE FERN! It had came in (I had to order it in order to even get one this time of year) so I came home, and I had that HUGE box it was in, 2 gallons of water for the pups, (I by them the filtered water or sometimes the spring water, I HATE the smell of "chlorine" in our tap water, and then I had some pipe wraps, and a bag of potting soil, and now I am OUT and did not quite have enough, even though I had THREE bags, and I still need a little bit for the fern itself...

and then a couple of things as far as groceries. So, I go out, get the potting soil from outside, and the wind is blowing like a "son of a gun"..LOL... but I got home, and as I started to get things out of the car, I heard a car pull up behind me, and thought it was the neighbors that  "kind of share" a driveway... anyway, so a woman's voice said "Maam"" and I almost jumped out of my skin, I was so busy getting things out of the car, and she said "We have some zucchini squash, some melons, and some banana's left over from the "Food Bank"....

if you would like some come back here and get what you want, well of course I did, WE eat LOTS OF FRESH FRUIT, and it is EXPENSIVE!!! I feed the pups some, they love apples, and melons, and just about all of it that I can give them that is okay for them to eat, and the zucchini, they were awesome and fresh looking, so she gave me several and I said that is plenty, but I will make bread out of some of it, and then a casserole out of some of it, and then the banana's were even "organic" which is not a real thing for me, but they were so "fresh" they were even "too green" for me to eat, and I love them on the green side... and then the cantalope looked good.


 I was so THANKFUL BECAUSE I was running LOW on fruit anyway, and the idea that she made a special trip around the neighbor offering it to those who would like some, and honestly as HIGH as groceries are now, even it just being me, because I try to buy as "healthy" as I can, my grocery bill is expensive.... so she told me "God Bless me" as I told her I was so thankful to get all of it, and I thought to myself, just a day or two ago, I got a letter in the mail from the "Meals on Wheels" folks... and I wanted to send something in, because I know that it helps LOTS of elderly people or those who can't get out of the house or don't have relatives, even if you have had a surgery and can't get out they will deliver you a hot meal...

but I couldn't "afford" the donation they asked for so I sent about half of what they were wanting, and put a note in there, that I always wanted to try and support them, but me being alone and living off my social security, I wanted to give what I could to help... so I felt like although it was not as much as I wished I could have given, that it almost "came back around to me" from the food bank and that kind lady who stopped by to ask if I wanted some... we STILL have those who are "amazing" in this nation... although we must deal with so many "mean people" we have those that give their all to help, and for me that was the best 'THANKSGIVING" BLESSING I could have gotten.....

Pain News Netowrk and & CONGRESS, DEA and governement STILL CAUSING GRIEF TO CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS!

(by the way I am NOT "promoting" any of these sites as far as them "selling" this... I happened to have been researching it, so I've looked at many websites, some of those who may "sell" this product, and others that have lots of information on it... by the way the ONLY type of Diatomaceous Earth that is "FOOD GRADE" would be the one you would want to try for you, or your animals etc... 

there are other "grades" and they are used for other issues, but the "Food Grade" type can also be used as a Natural bug killer, and still be "consumed" by humans and so forth... so I am not saying "yeah" "try this"   I just bought mine and it came in from the big "Amazon" (but I buy LOTS of my things there) so it didn't come from any other site... and you do your own research to decide if this is something you may want to try .... speak to your doctor (which some may say sure, but since it is NOT making LOTS of big "Pharma" money, probably many "professionals" may say "nope"... so you do your own thinking and research..






3 Reasons the Opioid Crisis is Getting Worse!



This is such a great article and SPEAKS MY MIND EXACTLY! "chronically ill pain patients" are NOT the ones causing the issues for the most part, those that use ILLEGAL DRUGS, OR GET THEM ILLEGALLY, are the problems.... and it's not fair for us that DO what we are supposed to, get "dinged" for those that are the ones who are abusers!







 

3 Reasons the Opioid Crisis is Getting Worse: By Roger Chriss, Columnist The opioid crisis is now a public health emergency. The CDC reports increasing rates of fentanyl overdoses.  And The Economist warns the crisis is entering “a new and deadlier phase.”

Trying to "find a new path" and Easier "lifestyle" for me, because i simply am not able to do all the stuff around my house I need to...

Lots going on, and much of it to do with my house, the lease on my car, and trying to "cut down" on my stress level, on my expenses, and get myself where I can spend more of my time doing the things I want to do, rather than drive myself insane with worry over "fixing" something every week at my house, and my own health, and pouring money into it that it is getting out of hand..

I never thought I would "want to live" in an apartment agai, BUT with the ways things are, the expenses of trying to keep a house "together", painting, roofs, inside work, floors, putting walls up in the laundry room, MANY trees that either need to be cut down or trimmed, and more.., the list is endless, and I have to face the fact I can no longer, "hang ceiling fans" and stand on a ladder to paint, or buff hardwood floors, fix a dryer again that has gone out, try to "fix" what the "scam artist" made a mess of with the repair and paint "job" he was "supposed to do on the outside of my house, and again, everyday there seems to be more, that keeps me away from my writing, my blog, my advocacy work, spending time doing the things I "want" to do, rather than a never ending realm of "repairs"..... so after the holidays, I am selling my home, and moving probably closer to my daughter around the Corpus Christi area, in an apartment, where I am no longer having to do ALL OF THE UPKEEP, MAINTENANCE, AND EXPENSE OF LAWNS, AND SUCH!!!


Well Hell, Just AS I THOUGHT! The dryer had the thermostat for some reason "short out" I think by the looks of it... so it (I can see) it "burned one of the tiny connections on the heating element... the element looks "okay" but with that piece damaged, I didn't take a chance. I ordered the ENTIRE ORDEAL, thermostat, the thermo fuse, heating element, and then the wires that go onto the thermostat and heating element. This is just about what happened before. I looked it up and it was in mid 2013 that we replaced all of that before. 

Thank goodness for AMAZON and keeping up with orders. I could go back and see exactly what I ordered then and so I knew exactly what I needed!!! It does piss me off that in 4 years it has gone out again, BUT when I MOVE, if the apartment does NOT have a washer and dryer, I am leaving mine to go with the house, or selling them and will buy a new washer and dryer. I bought them 2005, or early 2006 when we first moved back to Ennis, so they have served their purpose. We did have to replace the parts before 4 years ago just like this in the dryer and then I know there was also the front "button" in the door that broke, and we replaced that, and I "think" something on the washer had also gone bad at one time and we replaced it also.,, SO ON THIS DREARY VERY COOL, RAINY CRAPPY DAY, I'VE been pulling the back off my dryer in that very TINY damned laundry room that has NO light worth a damned, so I was trying to hold the flashlight and the the damned hex screws loose from the back of the dryer, LOL..."Tis done and I've put the order in for the parts, which will come in on Friday! But, of course I may not get them early enough to put it back together until Saturday... 

I was SUPPOSED TO ONCE AGAIN GO TO THE CASINO ON SUNDAY! But, now I am not sure if I will, Bella has surgery next Wednesday bless her little heart...I had to postpone it from this past Monday, I've been under the weather with a headache, sore throat, very hoarse, and my right shoulder and elbow are about to drive me nuts. I guess I've been using it painting outside and putting down that edging that I have to use a rubber mallet to drive the stakes into the ground that hold that edging down... plus cut more tree branches down and still need many more. but today I "think" I am just about through for the day..., I got up again very, very early and didn't sleep worth a damned, and I am exhausted honestly..  it seems to be non stop worry over this house, the yard, how many trees need to either be trimmed or cut down, and I am just no longer able to do even with the "cordless" mower, weed eater, chain saw, and so on...

If my neck and shoulder specialist "knew" what I've been doing he would probably have a cow! I am really taking a chance with much of what I have been having to do myself, between the hip fractures last year in December to the 4 month ordeal getting over neck surgery this past April, along with my lower back, now the shoulder that has been replaced and that elbow on the right side just giving me hell with pain, and the weather does NOT help for sure...,

I "PROMISE" to get back TO YOU GUYS, MY READERS, AND THOSE THAT FOLLOW MY BLOG, MY NEWSPAPER, MY FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND SO FORTH... AS SOON AS I AM OUT OF THE HOUSE, IT'S SOLD, AND I AM SETTLED INTO AN APARTMENT, MY HOPES ARE THAT I CAN ONCE AGAIN FOCUS ON THE THINGS I WANT TO DO, BLOG, WRITER, BE WITH MY TWO FUR BABIES, AND SPEND MORE TIME ON MY ADVOCACY WORK!!!!
