Woot! congrats on the learner's permit. I got the learner's permit right off, but the actual driving test was not so great. I failed the first driving
test. I was so nervous, I stopped for an ice cream truck that had pulled over for children and I royally messed up the parallel parking. My doctor
gave me 2mg of valium for the second, perfect score.
I am thankful for friends, family. I am thankful that I moved out of the house that would have eventually fallen down on my head and bankrupted me.
It's still on the market, but I am in an awesome apartment with gas and heat included. SEVERED from National Fuel Gas for the first time since I was
Someone I work for, mainly cleaning and organizing, bought me a brand new laptop. Said to help him learn some things on it and then it would be mine.
I took it home about 2 weeks later. He wanted to learn how to learn Bitcoin and how to use Tor and a few other things. Easiest work of my life.
I removed more than 70% of the clutter I had accumulated over the years. I am starting over. Gonna decorate my apartment like the sister's apartment
in the movie "Lights Out" and kept the main of my gothic art and decor. And vintage barware. Down to 1 large box and 1 tote of papers and have the
organizers to put them in. It feels almost like physically losing weight.
I lost my glasses well over a year ago and something ALWAYS got in the way of me going to the optometrist. My own optometrist wouldn't even tell me my
glasses RX over the phone so I could order online. Fired original eye doctor. I got new glasses, finally, about 5 days ago. I can see!!!!! and about
25% of my anxiety disappeared he moment I put them on.
My aunt bought so much for my moving including a 12 in memory foam bed and platform. New linens and pajamas and underthings...she was firm that new
linens and pajamas and underthings go in a new residence and the rest get tossed.
She said she is taking me for more pillows next, which she says 'can't be bought online, you must test them!".
It has been a rough year. My mom died, I broke my foot, finances haven't been great, I have to say goodbye to a really good President. But otherwise,
things seem to be getting better.
I am hopeful!
