Just One of Them Days

Hello, World!!! It’s been one of them days where I things that went all the wrong directions, actually got everyone off work early. First the president is in town so everyone is working from home. Which is great because I’m dealing with a migraine.

The not so great part of working from home is four out of my five clients cancelled on me and I am finished with my paperwork so my supervisor gave me the rest of the day off with pay due to having a migraine. To make it worse the fire alarm system in my apartment building keeps malfunctioning

Just like planning a good bye party at work in a dysfunctional way, this is how my neighbors get together in a difunctional way. Yes, in a way my dysfunctional family’s are very similar at times, annoying and fun at the same time.

Well, since I get to take the rest of the day off, I get to do some self care. Self care with my cat Billie and listening to music while taking care of my health care of a migraine. Peace Out, World.

A Brief Post About Nothing

Good Evening, World!!! I didn’t post my Everyday Inspiration today because, my depression and anxiety were so bad that I needed to call out to work due being sick. Well maybe really depressed and anxiety ridden. I’ve been sleeping most of the day. I feel bad because, I was ignored my poor Billie Dean all night as well as today due to sleeping the most of the day. I hope you all can forgive me. I will be back to do my Everyday Inspiration course on tomorrow (Friday ) and/or Saturday. Thank you for understanding.

I do not have much more to discuss in his particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. I am greatly appreciated that you the reader, read the blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Sound Asleep & Woke Up With an Asthma Attack

Good Very Early, Morning, World!!! I am not a happy camper right now. I was sound asleep and woke of from an asthma attack. Someone or maybe multiples someone’s are smoking in their individuals are smoking in their apartments which is creeping into the hallway and into other apartments. Apartments of those who don’t smoke cigarettes and/or weed. I don’t smoke cigarettes nor do I smoke weed due allergies of the cigarette smoke and it causing me asthma attacks like the pot smoke does.

It is against the lease to smoke in our units and inside common areas and the community patio. Sadly, the management can’t do anything about because there needs to be witnesses and/or proof which fucking sucks. You need to be breathing and alive to be able to pay rent and if a resident dies due to asthma attack from the cigarette and/or pot smoke then the family has everyone right to sue the management company for not doing shite about it. Thankfully my emergency inhaler worked.

I don’t have much more to say this blog post. I am tired has hell. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my hear for reading my blog. Have good Saturday ahead of you all even if it’s 3:38 in morning or at least it is in Seattle. Peace Out, World!!!

Not Going to Work Today

Good Morning, World!!! As if this day couldn’t get worse. Well it could get worse but I have faith it won’t. Despite not getting much sleep last due to an idiot neighbor pulling the fire alarm due to other neighbors not wearing mask which is annoying in itself. I found out my dad was in the Emergency Room all night. He will be admitted to the hospital. It looks like I won’t be going to work like I had hoped to do. I did let two supervisors know as well as HR know that I would be going into work but I will have to now tell them I won’t be going into work. I really want to work but due to the lack of sleep due to a neighbor and my dad being in the hospital, I wouldn’t be at my best to help my clients. I really want to be at my best for my clients at work as they deserve to have me at my best.

On that note, Billie Dean, my cat is cuddling me right now. I think he senses that something is wrong and is comforting me. I just love my cat, Billie so much. He know exactly when I need some extra loving care and comfort.

As far as my dad goes, I hope he is just in the hospital for a couple of days. On a positive note he does not have Covid-19. He had a couple of grand mal seizures so they are just keeping him for observation and to make sure his meds are at an appropriated level. I love dad and am grateful that he raised me as a single dad back in the 80’s and 90’s with the help of my grandparents.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to say thank for reading my blog post. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader read my blog. If it wasn’t for you reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope you all have a great Wednesday ahead of you. I know I will try to have a good Wednesday. Just remember I appreciate all of you and think you are all awesome people. Peace Out, World!!!

An Extremely Lazy Sunday

Good Evening, World!!! It is ten o’clock at night in my neck of the woods known as Seattle. I literally have done nothing all day be eat, sleep and read Wonder Woman comic books. I mostly slept all day. I wish I didn’t sleep all day because it screws up with my sleep hygiene; sleep schedule.

I’m starting to get worried about my sleep schedule because I am wondering it is mainly due to getting over Covid-19 or if depression symptoms are starting to creep back in. No matter the reason, I just want to be back on my normal sleep schedule. If it is because of depression, I will need to let both my physical and mental health teams be aware of it. As far as the Covid-19 shit messing with the sleep, I know it’s normal for some people to feel extremely fatigue that it makes them sleep more than they usually do.

As far as when I have been awake today, I’ve been in bed cuddling with my very sweet kitty, Billie Dean. In fact I joke around with people that I sleep with a man every night name Billie. Not my fault people don’t pick up on the joke especially when they know I have a male cat. Billie is such a cuddle but and a pain in the butt at times.

While being in bed most of the day cuddling with my precious cat, Billie, I have been reading comics. Specifically comic books. To be more specific, I have been reading Wonder Woman comic books. In fact the back story of me becoming a Wonder Woman fan was because of my dad who was a single dad. Long story short my mom abandoned both my dad and myself in the middle of the night when my dad was working a night shift leaving me home by myself at the age of three. I know my mom left a note but since I couldn’t l read it I called my grandparent phone number which I was required to memorize. Anyway, my mom left both me and my dad because she couldn’t handle dealing with a man with a TBI working on sobriety and a daughter dealing with hearing impairments and speech delays. Even though I had my paternal grandmother as a female role model, my dad with his intellectual disabilities and TBI know he was not able to read due to is disabilities he wanted to make sure I had a role model to look up to even if it was/is a fictional one. So at the age of them three my dad started buying me Wonder Woman comic books. As I grew older and learned how to read, I would read two to three Wonder Woman comic books to my dad as part of our bedtime routine. I may still be sad my dad was not able to read bedtime stories to me but am grateful that we looked and Wonder Woman comic books as apart of our bedtime routine which turned into me reading them to my dad once I was able to read. Yes, my grandparents did help with me learning to read but watching my dad full of pride with me reading is something I will never forgot.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post except the my dad making sure I learned to read despite him not being able to read makes my heart happy and grateful. I would like to thank you for reading my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reading reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader do read my blog. Again, from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Weekly Check-In

Good Evening, World!!! This week has one hell of a week. Not exactly a bad type hell of week but more like a frustrating type hell of a week. First things first, I had to take this past Monday off due to still having covid-19 and feeling like fucking shit. I still feel like crap but at least I am feeling better enough to work. Thankfully, I have the luxury of being able to work from home because I would not be feeling well enough to be working in the office. Covid-19 is no fucking joke. I was informed my the Emergency Room doctors as well as my own doctor that if I hadn’t had the vaccine and the booster shot for Covid-19 I most likely would have end up in the hospital due to the fact I have underlining health issues.

On that note, despite not feeling very well, I still worked most of the week from home. I worked from Tuesday through yesterday, Friday. In fact I initially wasn’t going to work yesterday, Friday, because it would have been my grandma’s 92nd birthday but realized taking off the day she passed away on would be a better day to take off. My supervisor, therapist, doctor, friends and family all agreed. Even though work went well this past week, I did manage to celebrate my grandma’s birthday by having a slice of banana cream pie as it was would she would have wanted for her birthday. I also sang happy birthday to a picture of my grandma.

Despite working from home while to completely feeling well, my friends and family have been checking on me to see how I have been doing especially health wise. There nothing like having Covid-19 to worry everyone for several reasons. One of which everyone want to make sure I am isolating so I don’t infect others which is a no brainer and something I am doing. Secondly, they are all worried that the Covid-19 can get worse for me due to having other health issues. I am so blessed to have friends and family that love me. Talk to you all later as now it’s time to spend more time cuddling my cat, Billie Dean. It appears that Billie want me to stop typing and give him attention.

Too Early to Be Awake on a Saturday Morning

Good Morning, World!!! It is just barely four o’clock in the morning Seattle time and I have been awake is just before three o’clock in the morning Seattle time. Not sure if it is the insomnia keeping me awake or if it is the Covid-19 cough keep me up or both. Whatever the reason, I just want to go back to sleep but that will be a bit hard to do at the moment as Billie Dean my cat is now being active since I am up. He is wanting to play which I will oblige. It also appears that some of my neighbors can’t sleep either. It appears many of us have sleepless nights on the same nights as I wonder if there something to do that. Whatever that reason, I am going to try to go back to sleep.

I’m not sure how I will try to get back to sleep I will make an attempt to go back to sleep as I want to get better from having stupid Covid-19. But least my sweet loving cat Billie will be doing his best to help me sleep. I love my cuddle bug of a cat. I love my cat so very much and don’t know how I would manage the hold Covid shit the last two years without him.

I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end that you my reader, read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great Saturday ahead and an awesome weekend. Peace Out, World!!!

Not My Ideal Way to Start Off a New Year

Happy Belated New Years, World!!! I want to apologize for posting a late New Year’s post as I came up Covid-19 positive. Which has worn me out completely. I did go to the hospital; specifically the emergency room as I thought I either had strep through, the flu or an a reaction the the booster shot. Turns out I ended up having Covid. Now the way I thought I would been ending the year of 2021 or starting they year 2022. On a plus note at least the Emergency Room (ER) sent me home instead of hospitalizing me. I take it as a good sign they sent me home. I get diagnosed on December 30th of 2021 and was not able to work at all for four days due to how shitty I felt from having Covid.

As shitty has having Covid is, I am taking a leave of absence from my volunteer to job at PAWS Cat City for the month of January so I can make sure I have enough time to become symptom free and be able to quarantine the ten days after being symptom and able to get one negative Covid test back so I can go back to volunteering in February. I will miss volunteering with the cats as well as helping find the right cat for their furrever home with a human that loves them

As far as work goes, I called out sick due to Covid-19 for four days even though I can work from home. I was just feeling shitty as hell. I did go to work (from home) this past Friday as I was feeling better to be able to work. My employer appears to be supportive of me and my colleagues when we are sick with whatever we are sick with be they are more supportive when it comes to Covid-19.

I did end up having to go to the hospital emergency room when I first noticed the symptoms I was having. I went because I wasn’t sure if I was have a reaction to the Covid booster I received the day before I went to the emergency room or if it was the flu because it felt like a really bad flu. Turns out it was Covid and that my booster had nothing to do with me getting Covid. My entire family got tested and all them were negative but my mom is still waiting on her results of her test. I’m hoping it is negative as then I think I know where I got it from. It most like would have been from the hotel I stayed at. Any way I feel like the hospital wouldn’t have sent me home with Covid if it wasn’t a minor case even though Covid feels like hell even when you are sent home. I am beyond grateful to be home with Covid than to be in the hospital with Covid.

There is know place like home even if you feel like shit especially from Covid. It’s is nice to be home with my wonderful loving cat Billie Dean. Billie is such a loving cat the enjoys snuggling with me especially when I am not feeling will.

As far as work goes, I will be working from home till I am symptom free for ten days with two negative Covid test in a row before going back to the office two days a wake. I like how they want to protect my colleagues and clients a like.

My volunteer job like the fact that I am taking a leave of absence for the month of January to protect employees, volunteers and potential adopters from Covid especially since I am not sure when my symptoms will be gone and able to do the post symptomatic quarantine and able to get tested with a hopefully negative test.

As much as I am grateful that I am home sick with Covid and have the luxury of being able to work from home now that I am felling somewhat better, I am thrilled that I have my cat, Billie Dean to keep me company. I do miss face to face human interaction. Billie, my cat hasn’t exactly left my side since getting Covid as I think he want’s to make sure I am taken care of by him. I love my cat so very much.

On the note it snowed in Seattle and I am grateful that it is gone as I highly dislike snow even when I am stuck home sick with Covid. Seattle basically shuts down at any chance of snow. Snow is not my friend.

Honesty, I am really missing volunteering at this very moment as that is what I would be doing this very moment if I didn’t have Covid-19. I miss playing with other cats and able to do what I need to do start the day at PAWS Cat City. I love volunteering at Cat City. I just want to expose my the employees, potential adopter and fellow volunteers with Covid.

As sucky the ending of 2021 was and how sucky the beginning of 2022 is due to having Covid, I am happy that Covid did not get my hospitalized. Getting Covid was not my ideal way end one year and start a new year but at least I am not hospitalized because of it. At least I get to be home spending it with my cat, Billie Dean. I love the fact the Billie is more cuddly at the moment due to me not feeling well. I am also grateful that I am feeling better to be working from home despite how tired I get. I love my job and that my work understands the need to work from home due to Covid.

I do not have much more to stay in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog as if wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. It means a great deal that you read my blog. Happy New Years and Peace Out, World!!!

The Start of the 2021 Holiday Season

Happy Hanukkah, World!!! Yesterday evening (Sunday, November 28, 2021) was the start of Hanukkah. I am personally not Jewish and I enjoy the meaning of the holiday as it was a miracle. Don’t know what to say as a non Jewish person but I do know it was a miracle and wouldn’t be able to share the story of the miracle which deserves some who is more familiar to share the miracle. Happy Hanukkah to the readers who are Jewish.

Honestly, this past week has been both emotionally and physically draining for me. It was physically draining for me because deep cleaned the bathroom as I let it get really gross and disgusting. Cleaning helped me feel a since of accomplishment even though I missed my cat, Billie Dean wasn’t around to “help” me with cleaning which isn’t helpful so he went my grandpa’s as I cleaned the bathroom as well a couple of corners in my living room.

The physical stuff was due to cleaning. The emotional stuff was missing my grandma almost four years ago as well as loosing my last cat Lil Gertie two years ago which landed on Thursday, November 28, 2019 which happened to be Thanksgiving Day that year (2019). The other emotion stuff was attending a goodbye dinner for my cat’s Billie’s last vet, Dr. B. Sadly, she had to make a tough decision close forever.

Speaking of vets, Billie Dean saw his new vet today. He tolerated a couple of things and I think that is a good thing. This vet and I are going to do our best to keep Billie a healthy quality of life which is why this vet wants to see Billie twice a year. When I adopted Billie, I knew there were dental issues and upper respiratory infection (URI). So, I knew there were going to be issues. I’m happy that I made the decision to have Dr. B (Billie’s old vet) take some bloodwork done while Billie was under to get his teeth cleaned. I really miss Dr. B even though the new vet is great. Billie was not quite sure of the new vet but sure in the hell impressed with her.

In fact I partly took today off from work to take care of Billie. The other part was give me some me time. Me time was taking Billie to meet his new vet who is awesome. The other me time I have been doing is spending time with Billie while I do some art while listening to Christmas music. I think it’s okay to place Christmas music now that Thanksgiving is over.

I know there are many other holidays this time of year and hope to find the time to blog about them. I don’t want to exclude out when it comes to holidays being celebrated. I want to make sure I can learn about other religions so I can share about them when it is time to celebrate them. I will do my best to post other holidays celebrate this time of year.

I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post. I just want to thank you for reading my blog as if you weren’t I would not be writing it. I really appreciate you the read my blog as if it wasn’t for you I would not be writing it. Again, thank you from the bottom of my hear for reading my blog. Happy Hanukkah and Peace Out, World!!!
