📸  Screenprint Attached  📸  (3 comments) Any other Nero Wolfe FANS out there? Fed Mr. at 6am and NOW back in bed LISTENING to this Audiobook. Overtired and you know how that is. Tired but not falling asleep. Anyway, audiobooks have saved me many times from myself. And what I mean is, we need REST to COPE with what life brings our way. Many nights audiobooks have been my SLEEP AID. So grateful  💃💃💃  So tell me about the BOOKS you like - the ones you read/listen to for PLEASURE.

  Are you familiar with the Libby Library App.  You sign up at your local library and you are able to get books that you can read/listen to from a number of libraries.  If they do not have it they place you on a waiting list to receive it.  Check with your local library about it.

Honored Social Butterfly

Thanks Cadee @Cadee2719 , I will keep it in mind for when I am back to NORMAL, whatever that will be.  🙄🙄🙄

 

Lol, remember the Farmer's Calendar I bought LAST year. Guess where it STILL IS. Yes, on my bookshelf.

 

I NEED to move to regain what SANITY I have left. So that is PRIORITY right now.

 

Thanks for info my friend.

 

Luv you,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

I find it difficult to read but I have a movie library and a Streaming service. Last night I watched and fell asleep to “His Dark Materials” I also watch “Pride and Prejudice“ a lot. I had a year where I watched “Contact” over and over. Many of the Marvel movies are also favorites. My walking play list songs are therms from many of my favorite movies.

1 comment [Saturday 7/13/24 2:28am ET - yes a restless night]

 

How are YOU doing?  🤔

 

Lol, one of my nights of restlessness but know this too shall pass!!!  👍👍👍

 

HAPPY DANCE, neighbors ABOVE me was NOT here LAST night.  💃💃💃

 

Their car was still here yesterday morning (Friday) and I had grit my teeth for a day of them NOT at work and on my LAST NERVE. But life RESCUED me and they left at lunch time. Am I getting a PEACEFUL WEEKEND???

 

Mr. No Name was VERY WEIRD yesterday. Was lounging on the SIDE of my porch TWICE instead of ON porch/steps or UNDER my car. Lol, about gave me my 1st heart attack as I was busy looking UNDER my car to see IF he needed to come in for water and food. Hmmm, interesting.

 

Then last night I was OUTSIDE about the time I turned on my Porch Light (9pm) talking to Rosa as we were BOTH concerned about a RANDOM CAR parked in front of our apt building. Lol, she is nosey like me (we the UNOFFICIAL NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH). WE will ask folks HANGING out in FRONT of OUR apts how they are and IF they waiting on someone = drug dealers and their customers NO LONGER hang out in FRONT of our apts.  👍👍👍

 

Anyway, 2 young guys was backed in BESIDE my car which is also backed in. And yes, smoking their LEGAL weed. I explained to the nice youngsters that this OLD lady has allergies and ONE window in her Studio Apt which she has had to CLOSE earlier than planned due to the weed scent in parking lot. Gosh, go smoke it in the woods of which we have LOTS on our hill. Anyway, they APOLOGIZED and hopefully this was a ONE TIMER.

 

So Mr. interrupts me and Rosa's chat as I had to go INSIDE to let him IN.  🙄🙄🙄

 

Another WEIRD change. After eating and drinking water, he goes UNDER MY BED. This is the 1st time. Okay, wants some ALONE TIME I see/lol. So I ignore him and watch Poirot on PBS and about ready to fall out my chair = sleepy.

 

Mr. is still UNDER MY BED.  🤔🤔🤔

 

He REFUSED to relocate out my door. Finally had to use my broom to GENTLY nudge him AWAKE and hopefully out my door. Lol, I even SHUT my door which would usually have him DASHING OUTSIDE. Nope - NO movement. Totally EXHAUSTED and NOT wanting to FALL ASLEEP while he is in my apt, I finally got him out. Lol, he was very angry and fought my broom. He sat on my porch LOOKING at my now CLOSED door like I donot believe she put me out look. Felt really bad, but needed to crawl into bed for the night.

 

Now to see IF he stops by AGAIN...

 

I HOPE so. He always came back in spite of Ms. Geraldine and her son using a broom to move him out of their way and PREVENT him from getting into the apt. Nope, he was NEVER allowed INSIDE and the whole complex would HEAR her YELLING at him EVERY MORNING. Lol, she would TRIP over him coming out her door IF she was NOT paying attention.

 

Luv you ALL,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Maybe that explains why he didn't want to sleep in the bed you provided.  He wants to sleep under YOUR bed in the house. 🤣  Sorry kid, you got yourself a cat that loves you.

  My cardiologist in CA sent the "referral".  Hopefully, I should hear from the new cardiologist soon.  I got the new refill prescription for my rheumatoid arthritis yesterday.  The material that came with it is scary.  It says it "may cause cancer" and that it is used to treat cancer!!!!  Now I have to figure out should I take a medication for my arthritis that can cause cancer?  Can I tolerate the pain until I see the new rheumatologist and avoid the medication I fought so hard to refill?  Is the cure worse than the illness?  I am so confused.  I am thinking I should maybe get the family doctor next and that they could do the referrals to the other doctors that I need.  

Honored Social Butterfly

Exactly Cadee @Cadee2719 and the reason I am TRYING to deal with my Hot Flashes with NO medication. I am grateful for them during Winter, got my own PERSONAL HEATER/lol. But Summer I am totally miserable.  😭😭😭

 

Please keep me and Dr. Diane @DianeB887812 aka Dr. Walker posted when you can.  👍👍👍

 

WE appreciate this UPDATE!!!  💃💃💃

Me, TRY to stay out of jail for str.ngling my neighbors ABOVE me/lol. I play my radio on BLAST on my FAVORITE FM station to tune them out.  👍👍👍

 

And work on OPTIONS to move to while I blast my CD PLAYER on my FAVORITE FM RADIO STATION to tune them out ALL WEEKEND.  💃💃💃

 

Hmmm, I bet OUR Cadee @Cadee2719 will be cooking for her neighbors = that is WHY I need to move next door to her.

 

And Bionic Marcy @MarcyW882921 probably on another Road Trip.

Toes looking BETTER since I did my Foot Soak yesterday, will do one today. Thanks for asking!!!  👍👍👍

 

Lol, oh YES - I now keep my purse, car keys in a small plastic container from Dollar Tree and had ordered a SPARE set of Car Keys. Spent WAY TOO MANY mornings crying - piss.d - stressed when the keys seem to disappear.  😱😱😱

 

When are those Medical Appointments????

How are YOU?  🤔

 

Quiet day for me = NO errands. Lol, was suppose to make that LONG DELAYED trip to the Laundry Mart YESTERDAY. Yes, the one I usually do EVERY SPRING = wash Winter Stuff (including comforter) to store for NEXT Winter. Between the extended Winter this time and storms, yours truly has NOT been this year. Will try week after next.  🙄🙄🙄

 

Need the space in my Studio Apt for SUMMER stuff until FALL arrives.

 

SO GRATEFUL Summer is only 3 months (well, suppose to be).  💃💃💃

 

LUV SPRING AND FALL.  👍👍👍

 

Well let me go empty the container in my Utility Room before it overflows./lol  🤣😂

 

Overnights when I do sleep cuts it close. Sleepless nights I can keep an eye on it.

 

Mr. is also outside asleep on my porch. I guess he came home after midnight last night as he was not there when I checked.

 

Luv you ALL,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

I’m feeling kinda normal this morning. My biggest problem is I keep losing things. My all time favorite scissors were MIA and after two days of inspecting every inch of my one bedroom apartment, I gave up and ordered a new one. I’m now double checking the location of important things like my keys and phone. I may buy some Air tags to put on important things until this part of the grief recovers. I am very dependent on the driving instructions my phone provides. I know this will pass, but it is darned annoying. 

Meanwhile, I also have two Dr appointments next week. Time to check my eye pressures and the cardiologist wants me in for my 4 month checkup. I’m glad my blood pressure has come back to normal. Those last couple of weeks with my husband were very stressful and all my numbers were very out of wack. 

How are those toes doing?

Lol, now that I have you keeping an eye on my toes, I will be doing this daily.

 

So HARD to just sit, but made myself work on my LOGIC PUZZLE BOOK. Helps to pass the time and give my OLD BRAIN a workout.  🙃

 

Thank you for CARING my friend,
