Hmmm, a 3:53am ET post = you must have been like me, up when we should be sleeping.  🤔

 

I luv the dog park idea and SOON we will be hearing about your NEXT furbaby.  👍👍👍

 

Good luck with releasing his ashes and I seem to remember you mentioning some at the dog park too. Or am I having a Senior Moment?  🙄

 

Yes, you have to drive for yourself and the OTHER drivers. And I tell my daughter to LET them do their thing even IF she has the RIGHT OF WAY = not worth being shot at.  😱😱😱

 

Luv you,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

How are YOU?  🤔

 

Lol, I have been up all night!!! 😂🤣

 

And bet when my 2 alarms (yes, two  🙄) go off at 6am to FEED you know who is when I will be asleep.

 

It stormed last night and I hope he was under someone's vehicle.

 

It passed for now and maybe he will surface to sleep as usual on my porch.

 

Plan for TODAY, last of 4 Dollar Trees hoping this one will have my hair oil or it will be Sally's I guess.

 

Everyone FIND YOUR PEACE.

 

Luv you guys,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Good morning speedy. I have now got my car paperwork in my name. That allows me to get a parking sticker for the dog park. Guess where I plan to go today. I just want to say hi to folks that knew Stephen and I and let them know he is gone. I’ll get to pet lots of dogs too. 

Next on my list is to take a boat ride off shore and release his ashes into the ocean

That is where Phil went and that is where I want to go. We will all be together. And no matter where friends or family live, they can find their way to a beach and visit us.

 

On the subject of poor driving habits, while I was driving back and forth to dyalisis treatments and then the hospital and finally the hospice, I ran stop signs and turned when I was not supposed to I can not tell you how many times. And I have never in my life ever been in an accident or gotten a ticket. I just did not have my mind on my driving. Dangerous. I still have to keep watch on myself. My mind wanders and sometimes I look around and have no idea where I am. So I’m staying home as much as possible. 

when I was grieving my first husband I had to go back to working after two weeks. I got totally lost on my way to work one morning   

So please everyone be carful driving. Sometimes you just have to, but try to concentrate on the driving extra hard. Or better yet get somone else to do the driving for now. 

STAY SAFE!!!!

📸  Attachment  📸  You guys made my day VERY SPECIAL today. Thank you SO MUCH for chatting. Time to go empty the bin in my Utility Room before it overflows.  🙄🙄🙄  Mr. left out after his nap. Did come over to lay on my toes. Lol, I guess guilt hit him = Mom is ALWAYS there for you when other humans donot feed you. Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

(3 comments) Okay, take a seat - chatterbox Nicole is now ready to share her INTERESTING day so far. Lol, had to watch some Garfield then Downtown Abbey to ERASE my RUN THE RED LIGHT moment!!!  😱😱😱

 

NEVER done this in my 66 years on this planet = NO speeding tickets or accidents. All it took was to be pulled over at age 18 (was speeding, given a warning) in St. Louis, Missouri in my BRAND NEW Honda Civic Hatchback (I bought myself, well car payments through my Credit Union). My 1st real job there was an Outside Hostess at the Steak 'n Shake down the road. I was 16 and walking. Talk about FREEZING my a.s off during the winter. Some serious snow.  😱😱😱  But the TIPS were AWESOME. Yes, we put those metal trays on car windows. In between cars, my b.tt was INSIDE thawing. Lol, how was that for someone who lived on an island for 16 years. NOT FUN. But Ron, my boss was really AWESOME.

 

Okay, back to my RED LIGHT incident today.

 

Now keep in mind I KNOW this intersection, been using it since 2018.

 

SO GRATEFUL I didnot get hit.

 

I was in the LEFT TURN lane heading to CVS and usually that lane's green ARROW comes on AFTER the other lanes' green does.

 

Yours truly hits the gas and makes my left turn, NOT even giving it a 2nd thought - while the arrow is still RED.

 

The only thing that saved me was that the folks moved SLOWLY forward.

 

Lol, now to see IF there was a CAMERA in that intersection.  🤔🤔🤔

 

I was so RATTLED after I swore I was STAYING home tomorrow (Thursday) and got gas TODAY. Had planned for tomorrow. I like to keep a FULL tank for those detours through the mountains for accidents and what seems to be chronic roadwork. Fun on 2-lane roads. Yes, those stop, go, slow flag men/women. Hmmm, it is Summer and folks got ice cream trying to get home from Walmart.

 

Anyway, NO luck at #3 Dollar Tree TODAY, so #4 tomorrow. Yes, going back out. Kind of paranoid now = will I do the same thing again.

 

🐈  Mr. was a TRIP yesterday!!! Insisting on TRYING to get in bed with me. He had left that alone way back. Lol, interesting what he has planned for today. Yes, Max's vehicle is here and he is nowhere to be found since eating everything in his dish at 6am this morning. Well let's say, took a few trips in and out (had to go see IF Max was home/lol). I finally shut my door to get ready for CVS. I need a Remote Door Opener for his SPOILT self. Geez...

Oh my Nicole @SummerIsTooHOT ! How scary!! 

 

I hope watching your shows helped you to regain your composure. Personally I have always found Downton Abbey to be a great escape!

  I loved that show, NEVER missed an episode.  Marcy I hope you solve the migraine mystery soon.  

Honored Social Butterfly

Thanks Marcy @MarcyW882921 . Someone was RIDING my bumper and I guess the STRESS from them being BEHIND me from way back caused me to mentally wanting to ESCAPE.

 

Throughout the years, EVERY accident I have been in has been from someone REAR ENDING me. Usually on cell or in a hurry. Anyway as I AGE, I try to PULL OVER when I can and let the BUMPER RIDER pass. I am NOT getting a ticket and they can go ahead and get one./lol   🤣😂

 

My area UNFORTUNATELY is being built up with WAY TOO many retail outlets = traffic a NIGHTMARE.  😤😤😤

 

Yes, time to move UPWARD to the mountains with the OTHER old people.  👍👍👍

 

And come down ONCE A MONTH to get groceries.

 

Luv you,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

🏡  Thanks Cadee @Cadee2719 for the tips!!!

 

The folks ABOVE me rent like I do.

 

I did EMAIL Josh in the office for a meeting on any Friday he is here on this property. They have him managing two properties and from what I was told, that property is worst as it is flat. GRATEFUL to be on a hill so NO flooding except in my Utility Room.

 

Anyway, around here one NEVER knows who is still here. I am assuming he is. I want a MOVE OUT LIST if one exists as I want ALL of my deposit back.

 

Tired of him being TOO BUSY and rushing off the phone when I call or not reply to my email.

 

Guest House sounds perfect. Lol, one WAY OUT from main house.  😂🤣

 

I need some ALONE TIME after dealing with these a.sholes from h.ll ABOVE me.

 

Luv you my friend,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Hopefully you figured this out (NO post emails in your Email IN BOX).

 

Lol, I know some of us READ these emails rather than stop by like I do daily.

Aha! It’s a plot to slow my recovery. But they can’t stop me! How is everyone this lovely morning. I had my walk this morning. It is very pleasant in the early morning. Three cute ducklings ran up to me expecting a handout. Someone has been feeding them. That may be a problem when they grow up , but for now they are cute. I’m doing nothing today. I still have a few things left on my to do list but two days of going to Dr appointments whiled me out. Shades of the panic I felt around the many appointments I had to take my husband to. I do not have anymore appointments for two weeks. So I will try to relax and recover. Luv to all especially @summersTooHOT

Lol, and that is WHY one marriage was enough for me. 😂🤣

 

Time to ENJOY what time I got left with my only child, a daughter and TAKE CARE OF MYSELF so she does not end up as my caregiver.  👍👍👍

 

Did you walk?

 

I just got out of shower and DREADING the heat outside.

 

🐈  Mr. is UNDER my car. Lol, he will NOT be happy when I WAKE him up to move car without running over him.

 

Thanks for update and GLAD you are okay.

I never had children. I worked at jobs that required my 24hr support. Payed well.  But I did not think it would be fair to try to raise a child when I would not have time to do the job properly. My first husband was a professional sailor. So I was on my own a lot during the first marriage. I’m probably going to get a chihuahua next year. I need a rest for now. If I get too lonely I can always go to see my older brother in Va.

(1 comment) Diane , you had me "giggling" when I read your post AGAIN after Walmart about what your doctor said. I MISSED the part about "have to be rich"/lol  😂🤣

 

Hey, Florida seems to be the area all the rich and famous seem to be moving to of late.

 

I had posted I wanted a Sugar Daddy in Florida LAST YEAR May 2023 when I was doing BOTH Virginia and Florida BEFORE reality hit me and Medicare Stress [change in doctors  😭😭😭].

 

GLAD I took my time now with my daughter being laid off 4/11 of this year 2024.

 

It was like LIFE had DELAYED me and now understand why.

 

On the subject of men, don't hate them, but donot need one to be happy or secure. Spent WAY TOO many years looking after and putting up with to return to that life.

 

Lol, you going for #3 hubbie???

 

WE got LOTS AND LOTS of potentials here in Virginia as you know from living here. But I know you HATE Winter. Maybe he will SPLIT his time between your apartment in Florida and his whatever here in Virginia.

 

Lol, YOUNGER than you too...

 

Thanks for the much needed chuckle!!!  😂🤣

 

Oh, I got a man  🐈  and he thinks he is paying rent here in my Studio Apt.  🙄🙄🙄

 

Luv you,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Glad you got a chuckle and did the favor of giving one back. I found during my last grief recovery laughing was the best medicine. Even when I was crying. Thank You!
