I hope you made it back safely Marcy @MarcyW882921 .

 

57 degrees here in Cave Spring, Virginia. About 7:50am ET. NO rain finally. Dumpster, mailbox and hopefully my boy Mr. No Name (stray cat adopted by us all, refuses to be indoors). Going to ENJOY THIS WEEK as holiday is Monday, School out soon  😭😭😭  and rain returns.

 

A day to stay in bed and RECOVER from the Weekend From H.ll with my neighbors ABOVE. They went to work at 7am, be gone until 3pm.  💃💃💃

 

Everyone, FIND YOUR PEACE TODAY.

 

Luv you all,

Sundays are one of my FAVORITE days. Why? ONE more day for my Neighbors From H.ll above to return to work until Friday.  💃💃💃

 

I am beginning to emerge from the FOG of dealing with a leak in my Studio Apt's Utility Wall. Still leaks but thanks to Josh, new guy in office - it NO longer comes into my apt.  💃💃💃

 

So yours truly can NOW go out and see what's out there while the youngsters are at work. Lol, got to do this when my Mechanic is OPEN Mondays thru Thursdays. Why? The OTHER Old Lady (2006 Hyundai Elantra) is getting OLD like me (66 this year) and ORIGINAL parts are starting to break. I am fine with this as she is RELIABLE.

 

Luv my Premium AAA Membership = IF needed I can have her towed to my Mechanic within 1 hour of where I live (that allows me to do 1 day trips to surrounding cities within 1 hour from my apt). NO ONE else touches her.

 

Everyone, FIND YOUR PEACE TODAY.

 

Luv you all,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

It is about 11:30am ET for me here in Cave Spring, Virginia. 64 degrees!!!  💃💃💃

 

Tonight is usually my Dumpster, Mailbox and Stop By Mr. No Name's Mansion on Ms. Geraldine's Front Porch. Mr. No Name is a stray cat who refuses to be adopted but luved by us all in his neighborhood. But it has been days of rain. So Monday Night I will do this. Suppose to be NO RAIN.  💃💃💃

 

Lol, laughing - but so NOT funny. I had gotten ALL EXCITED when I saw my Neighbors from H.ll get into their guest's car with their guests. Well, the female guest and kid just started to do her Project Over My Head. I am guessing kid acted up and they decided to drop them off. It is a VERY OLD building, built in the 70's and they KNOW that it CREAKS really badly when they rock back and forth.  🙄🙄🙄  It amazes me the HOURS they rock back and forth to p.ss me off. Oh well, not too much longer for me to move...  👍👍👍  And my FAVORITE radio station is on blast which p.sses them off.

 

Everyone, FIND YOUR PEACE TODAY.

Cadee @Cadee2719 and Allen @Therapist4u I feel just the way you BOTH feel. In my opinion, Cadee - you and your neighbors will have to make sure you guys CONTINUE to be SAFE. I have cop friends and unfortunately as we already KNOW criminals exist EVERYWHERE, even cops.

 

[1] Keep your eyes and ears OPEN AT ALL TIMES. Nip crime in the bud BEFORE it takes over.

 

[2] Cadee took her time and made sure she was NOT moving into ANOTHER unsafe environment. But that can CHANGE if everyone is not GUARDING this safety.

 

[3] Allen, me and you will one day be SAFE like Cadee NOW IS!!!  💃💃💃

 

Luv you BOTH,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Well, today was "suppose" to be my LAST Peaceful Retirement Day Of The Week but my Neighbor From Hell's guests arrived last night. So it will be an ALL DAY RADIO STATION on "blast" unless they leave like their hosts did for work. Kind of surprised as it is NOT Memorial Day as yet!!! Anyway, much as I HATE "loud" music, it has HELPED me to maintain my SANITY until I can move. Headphones are NOT an option = I need to be on alert in my neighborhood as it goes downhill. Hey Ms. Idaho @Cadee2719 , soon I will be like you = in a safer environment!!!  💃💃💃

 

Everyone, FIND YOUR PEACE TODAY.

 

Luv you guys,

(1comment) CADEE HERE IS A COPY OF WHAT ALLEN WROTE TO YOU IN ANOTHER MEMBER'S DISCUSSION IN CASE YOU WANT TO REPLY TO HIM IN THIS DISCUSSION. NO PRESSURE AS USUAL TO REPLY. NICOLE  🤗🤗🤗

 

[*** ALLEN @Therapist4u wrote:

Hi @Cadee2719

You’re very welcome!

 

While my time on this AARP site is very limited, I wanted to let you know I appreciate much of what you have written over time.

 

In particular, when you said about: “I am sad that my beautiful neighborhood in California became a haven for the homeless, crime and fear” That has also happened to where I’ve lived in my present home...the 1st one I bought, decades ago.

All the good friends I’ve had have either moved... or passed on! The condos changed from mostly owner-occupied who were actively engaged in fixing issues & improving it, ... to mostly renters who don’t care about anything ...not to be helpful, or trying to be friendly, or civil or respectful!

 

But also the part where you mentioned that:

“I feel safe, I am in a community of kind and helpful people, love my new home,  am able to go any where I want and not be afraid”....

is encouraging ....& I’ve been on a slow path (takes so much time...especially finding the right contractors...& BEAUCOUPS of money.... as you know...LOL) to remodeling ....in order to sell,... & move to a similar situation as you have! 🙂

 

IMHO: you definitely earned that... by your hard work.... & persistence!

Take care ~Allen ***]

 Thank You Allen.  I think AARP should address this issue.  People being pushed out of their homes because of the crime, robberies and killings.  What do they do?  Where do they go?  My 80 year old neighbor was killed.  The homes in my neighborhood (a community that was safe for the 46 years that I lived there) are being robbed in the DAYLIGHT with people in them!!!  The

community I lived in was safe for all the years I  lived there,  yet the homeless and the criminals control the area.  The politicians focus on the homeless and do nothing for the taxpayers.  Laws protect the criminals and it was unsafe to go grocery shopping or leave the house.  Yet, all you ever hear about are the homeless.  I am certain that I am not the only elderly person that had to deal with this and yet we hear nothing from AARP.  Yes, to pick up my life at the age of 80 and move to another state to FEEL SAFE was the hardest thing I have ever done.  My son was kind enough to do the same and for that I am appreciative.  The impetus was the deaths of my son and husband.  I promised my husband I would move and I did.  Each day I feel as if I died and went to heaven.  Life is good here.  I am safe, go anywhere I want to go, have neighbors that are kind and helpful and am able to sleep at night.  I can't tell anyone what they should do, but I can say to explore the possibilities and do what is necessary to make you happy and safe.  It is sad that this is an issue in today's society, but let's not "pretend", put our heads in the sand and ignore the realities.

SO GOOD to hear from you today Ms. Idaho @Cadee2719 !!!  💃💃💃

 

Lol, my daughter and youngest brother are (probably still) folks who seem to hang onto and store stuff.

 

I remember BEFORE my daughter left to live on her University Campus, her room was a room I kept the door SHUT.  😱😱😱

 

My younger brother like an Uncle I had (now deceased) would tear electronics apart and so on. When they MOVED out of their parents' homes, yes - stuff NEVER moved with them.

 

With my daughter I warned her, I would be cleaning (dumpster) out her room. Lol, she got my message loud and clear.  👍👍👍

 

HOW EXCITING and I look forward to hearing from you AGAIN.

 

Luv you,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Drive or ride SAFELY today Marcy @MarcyW882921 and Good Luck with your Chorus Competition!!!  💃💃💃

 

Jonibee @jonibee , you are in my thoughts today.  👍

 

Ms. Idaho @Cadee2719 , lol - got that OTHER side of your garage unpacked? Some folks NEVER park their cars in theirs = Storage Facility. When I had one, ALWAYS used it. Nothing like dodging the rain while climbing in and out of my car.  👍

 

And EVERYONE ELSE, enjoy today and be the best you can be.

 Good Morning    Still working on the house.  No the garage is STILL filled.  I am able to pull my car in so that is a good thing.  The problem is my son originally thought he would want a bedroom set, table and chairs, etc. and has now changed his mind.  He also brought EVERY tool of his fathers and guess where they are!  He is in the process of being cleared for a fantastic job opportunity so he has no time to even think about all the stuff he has here in my garage.  😂  I will continue to unpack my boxes and try to push the other stuff further to the wall.  Evidently, "I" will have to make the decision to call a charity to bring a truck and cart all the stuff away.  Slowly the house is getting done.  I am settling in.  I LOVE IDAHO; it is like I died and went to heaven.  I discovered a women's group that gets together and does activities together.  Sounds like fun.  My neighbors in California stay in touch and I am expecting a visit from a young woman that worked for me at the University.  She has relatives here and discovered I am just 15 minutes away from them!   I have also located a Food Bank nearby that I can volunteer for.  I AM HAPPY.  I am praying that your daughter will find a job she loves and that you find happiness and contentment.  Luv you ❤️  Our Marcy continues to be a "busy bee" and I am happy for her.  All of this does not mean that we have forgotten our loved ones.  I am certain that we all think of them each day and keep them in our heart and minds.  They will NEVER be forgotten.

Well, I didnot win anything from the two Scratchoffs I bought at Walmart YESTERDAY but I saw Dalinda and my OLD Maintenance Guy.

 

Lol, he told her he USE TO BE my friend - luvs to tease.

 

Also got the DETAILS finally from my daughter in Florida YESTERDAY and a phone call a few days ago. Yes, being PATIENT paid off. She will be okay for a few months more while she continues to Job Hunt after her 4/11/24 Layoff.

 

Quiet day for me.

Cadee @Cadee2719 , guess where Dalinda use to live???

 

I found out TODAY she has only been in Virginia with her husband for 5 months.

 

Well, answer is Boise, Idaho!!! Yes Ms. Idaho.

 

They moved into his son's basement here due to her Cancer Medical Bills.

 

Anyway, we talked about her week-long Camping Trip and hubbie's son's furbaby who FOLLOWS her around until Dalinda SITS so furbaby can get into her lap./lol  🤣😂

*** REMINDER: Be the best you can and NEVER let anyone make you FEEL bad about yourself. AARP created this Grief & Loss Forum for us ALL. I have learn't to ACCEPT folks for who they are. Lol, some I NOW avoid. You are ALWAYS luved by me = keep stopping by to chat with me = makes my day EXTRA SPECIAL  💃💃💃  ***

 

Well, it is that time again = Weekly Out Of Food Run to Walmart. I hope to see Dalinda.  🙃

 

Didnot win amything on the ONE $1 Scratchoff Ticket I bought last week. For some reason I am guessing there is an "issue" with the Walmart Lottery Machine. Several ERROR SLOTS. Oh well, some weeks the machine is off. Lol, still SMILING from my 1st ever $100 win. Usually win a free ticket or $1/$5/$20. My Weekly splurge.  👍

 

Had to call my Mechanic YESTERDAY. The inside door lock on Driver's Side decided to crack.  😱😱😱

 

GRATEFUL door still works.

 

Had this happen when I was a youngster and could CRAWL in from passenger side.

 

TOO OLD to do that at age 66 this year.  🙄🙄🙄

 

So I get to go see my Mechanic at 8am NEXT WEDNESDAY. Lol, forgot to ask price but they ALWAYS work with me. He (son, family owned) said to open window when getting out of car and open door from outside to PREVENT more damage to lock. And you already KNOW I will forget, so I TAPED area yesterday so I remember. Hey, us OLD folks have to improvise.

 

Rainy day, so it is my Rain Shoes TODAY = those OLD sneakers you do not care IF they get wet.

 

Everyone, FIND YOUR PEACE TODAY.
