I MEANT TO DO THAT

This is my vibe today and this whole day is going to be “I meant to do that.” Except for the dream that jolted me out of bed an hour earlier than usual this morning. That I didn’t mean to do.

I dreamt I was having sex with this really hot guy I went to high school with – FYI, he’s still hot but that’s beside the point. – It was so unsettling and irritating. First, because I woke up an hour early. – I thought about calling him and waking him up early but he’s in Michigan so he was already awake and at work. – Second, because I could’ve had sex with him in high school if I wanted to and I didn’t then so why would I have sex with him now?

It’s going to take me all day to shake that feeling of my space being invaded even if it was only a dream. I hate dreams like that. They make absolutely no sense. I didn’t watch or eat or have a conversation, anything at all, that would’ve caused me to have that dream. So weird.

Also weird, every morning I ask Alexa to play me a song to start my day with. What does she play?
It’s like Alexa and Frank are both telling me, “it was a dream. Suck it up.”


Now I feel like I need to explain who Alexa is. Hopefully, these photos will help. You can do so much with it.
#1 – What it looks like, the name, blah, blah. 
#2. – You can load pics on it and it’s a continuous loop of whoever/whatever you want it to be.
#3 – You can say, “Alexa show me the recipe for…” 
#4 – You can have Alexa play any podcast you want to listen to.

I always check my news, weather, and traffic in the morning. 
You can watch movies and tv shows.
You can get on YouTube. It has total internet access.
I love it because it’s just so handy! Like the other day I wanted to know how many tablespoons were in 1.5 ounces dry. I asked Alexa and Alexa knew.
– 3 tablespoons. 1 tablespoon = 1/2 an ounce. –
You can ask Alexa anything except to say swear words. She can’t say those but you all know I had to try because that’s just me.

Anyway, so that’s Alexa for those of you who didn’t know and she comes in many shapes and sizes with and without photo options.


First and foremost, getting some of this that Joe (and Mrs. C)
over at ‘The Cranky Old Man‘ turned me onto. Thanks again, Joe!
THEN, I’m going to get my organizing done! I really have to make room for the new Christmas stuff and I’m also getting myself organized to start selling some of the things I make/create. I don’t know whether I’ll do that on Etsy or Facebook or wherever but it’s on my list to do but first, organization!

I know a few of you out there sell your creations as well. What platform works best for you?

Okay, I’m jumping off of here. Have a great Monday and be safe!
Oh, and while I’m thinking about it…
Raise your hand if you’re planning on getting the Covid vaccine.

NEW YEAR OLD ME

Happy 2nd day of the New Year!
Aside from the current worldly events, how’s the New Year going for you personally? 

I had such grand plans going into the new year.
I made a list of all of the things I was going to get done and it was full speed ahead… Until it wasn’t. 
I was trying to organize find room everything that Santa was kind enough to bring and that involved a lot of heavy lifting, pushing, and pulling, and can I just say this? If you’re over 50 and there are younger and stronger bodies around, let them do this shit. Their bodies still have a lot of oomph left in ’em. Mine does not.


Fortunately, or unfortunately, back pain and I go way “back” – get it? –
So I’m going with the at-home remedies. Hot/cold packs, Ibuprofen, using my massager – no, not that one – stretching, and taking hot baths with Epsom salts. However, I am currently in search of a chiropractor with a magic wand because this sign says it all!


Soooo. Since my back stopped me from continuing with my house organization I decided to do all of my at-home remedies and take a nap. I woke up feeling a little bit better but not much.

My oldest granddaughter called for some Facetime and that definitely made my heart feel good even tho she’s always freaking me out – and making me laugh – with her Nutcracker ornaments.
I am so not a fan of anything Nutcracker. The nutcrackers themselves are creepy and I’m pretty sure that nutcracker music is the music they play on a continuous loop in hell but lit’l Miss K loves it. She loves it so much she falls asleep listening to it! I told her the Nutcracker music makes blood shoot out of my ears so what does she do? She turns it on and turns it up!
Yep. She’s mine…
SIDE NOTE: She is in ballet and they will be doing the Nutcracker. That’s the ONLY time I’ll see it and love it.


Still wanting to actually accomplish something today that didn’t involve heavy lifting I started organizing my online stuff and managed to delete 500 emails. Only about 8,000 more to go…

Yeah Willie… About 8,000 of them, give or take a few hundred…


And this was my day in a nutshell. 
I hope your New Year has started out pain-free and that you’ve had a million reasons to smile today.

Chat with me in the comments.
Be safe. Be well. Be happy. Be kind and I will meet you all back here tomorrow!
