Parfait Kitties

Black-Skittles, Gray tabby-Sugar, buff-Peach, pewter-Little “Gray” Kitty, yellow tabby-Butterscotch, Tuxedo– Oreo, and then comes calico called Sundae.

Story of all my cats I have have had since life in tiny house.

Sugar is my oldest cat, have had her since 2006. She is like a little short legged, petite cat. Stubborn, finicky cat. She doesn’t like certain flavors in the cat food, so she throws out those flavors.

Skittles was given to me by my daughter because she was relocating to Virginia. As well as Peach. Both of these precious kitties were taken most likely by the fox that was roaming around.

Skittles was my attack cat, my mom would bring her boxer(Bubba) with her and Skittles would run him away. Hiss if he got to close to door. Very funny.
Peach was a beautiful sweet timid cat that slept in my bed. Shyly hiding when company came over.

In the meantime another kitten showed up, Live at the end of a quiet dead end street. So either drop off the cats or were born and wander to me.

Gray was hiding under my car. Skinny solid gray that was afraid of me. I used my cat whisperer skills and coaxed him to come to me. He is a BIG cat. A big sissy that taps on me when he wants to be petted or if he feels his food bowl doesn’t look full.

Butterscotch was crying in my mom’s backyard. Had a hard time getting him to come to me. I had to use my granddaughter to use her skills to get him. He is another tabby, yellow. She drools when he is happy. Gets kinda gross, but do I need to make him a bib?ūüėć

Oreo was a tuxedo cat, black and white. My baby, I loved her with all my heart. In fact if I could get her back for a trade of 2 I would. Of course don’t ask which two. I tear up even now writing this. She announced herself when she came in. Like
saying whatcha doing? I’m here.

After a quite a few months maybe a year, there was hissing going on outside my front door. Opened the door and hiding under my porch was a calico. Wow, never had one before and she came right in. Not that my other cats approved. She is finally making friends with them.

Life in My World of Melony

I luckily had a car, that I paid off with my SSDI settlement. Its an old car, but it gets us from A to B and it runs good. Thats all that matters. Still have 8 years later and it is a 1992!

My son changed school districts, made new friends nearby. All of them great boys, still to this day. That was one of my many worries as a Mom.

My next task was getting my credit back, from being able to buy a houseand being able to buy cars to having such bad credit I couldn’t get a checking account.

So I used Walmart MoneyCard, which works just like a debit card. My SSDI deposit was able to use that card. I decided it was time to move on UP! I went to the little local bank nearby to see if…

Getting Rid of Procatisnation

What has happened to me to make me feel so lazy?

I feel like I am spinning my wheels sometimes, I want to get things done. But I don’t. What has happened, what is the reason, am I just lazy? I have lists and post it notes all over. I have an unorganized life ¬†swinging around making decisions in no direction. ahhhh!! Hate it. I have a very good friend who is so neat and organized, has her own business, what is it about people like this that I am not doing that I have to ask myself.

First I have to get organized, I guess.

So I just ordered a planner for myself and my mother who has many pads with notes that she cannot keep up with. I ordered mine from Amazon.

I would like a cute one from I Heart Planners or another one of the great bloggers that have cute planners but as usual I am broke.  So I make do with free planner pages and my notebook and printed pages.

Then step 2 is my meditative, turning off this computer and my 3 yes THREE devices where I play my games, that prevent me from my chores. Should I add my Television? ¬†My YouTube,¬†Netflix, HULU…??Geez… YES!

This is going to be very hard, but if you think about it maybe that is why we are a fat, obese, and over weight nation. Ok, now I am on the right track.. I will add this to my planner, time management. One hour a day for TV, One hour for cleaning, 1 hour for sewing, etc, tweaking as I move along.

Lets make a pack to get all things in our life done, in a efficient manner, to enjoy our life in an organized,clean, stress free, no money problem life to the best of our ability. So let’s do it!!

Please join me in our quest

Here are some of my inspiration links, I will be adding more for you or you can send me some.

Almost There

This is the Beginning

I live in a tiny house. Not like what’s on television. Well OK. Kinda, sorta. Let’s start from the beginning.

tiny house

When I was married to a real life loser, an alcoholic, drug abuser, con artist.

I had made up my mind to leave. I had already told my mother that I was going to move into a “storage” building my brother had built next to her house. She told me I could. One morning I¬†woke up heard him (my now ex-husband) making coffee. Before he started his daily routine of pill taking and doctor going I walked in and told him that Guy (our son) and I were leaving when school was over, a few weeks away. He just sat there and said OK (more than that but that’s more than I want to put in this post).

The cottage¬†had no bathroom yet, so we walked to Mema’s (my mom) to use hers until the it was done.

My son would start a new middle school new school year. My job was closer so it was going to be fine. We had nothing to stop us any longer, so this was like super nice. Relaxing.

No cigarette smoke house. No pee in milk jugs, yes I said NO Pee in milk jugs. (The bathroom was 7 steps away. I counted).

Then my MS(multiple sclerosis) hit hard while working. I was working at Home Depot warehouse. No air-conditioning, no heat. Hard physical work. In the meantime I had researched getting a divorce with no lawyer, since I had no money for that. Well I filed for divorce with a lot of going back and forth to courthouse, researching online. It took about 6 months and wait time, divorced $50. Left work, went on workers comp. Filed for disability, used a lawyer(Allsup). After a year I started receiving. I had worked since I was 14 so money was enough to live on.

My life was again.

Continued from A Long Season

I luckily had a car, that I paid off with my SSDI settlement. Its an old car, but it gets us from A to B and it runs good. Thats all that matters. Still have 8 years later and it is a 1992!

My son changed school districts, made new friends nearby. All of them great boys, still to this day. That was one of my many worries as a Mom.

My next task was getting my credit back, from being able to buy a house and being able to buy cars to having such bad credit I couldn’t get a checking account.

So I used Walmart MoneyCard, which works just like a debit card. My SSDI deposit was able to use that card. I decided it was time to move on UP! I went to the little local bank nearby to see if I could open an account. I COULD!! and did.

Now that sent me on the road to building my credit back, I looked at CreditKarma and started using that site to build it back. My credit score went from 490 to 600 in 3 months

I continued to work on it, I was picking up Prescriptions at Walmart and picked up a flyer for credit card “I thought what the heck?” I had it at home and fill out online. I was approved! Moving on up! Many months later, I now have a 728 credit score and trying to go even higher.

eeeking out of the month

– Like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions. Yet our roots remain as one.

 

Starting out slow this morning, no coffee for me. I have one cup a week. Painful, from a pot to one cup a week. oH, I miss my coffee.

I have a notebook full of plans, a Pinterest full of ideas, and a house that drastically needs cleaning. Washer broke, so none of that. Thank goodness it is Saturday and I do have clean undies. I turned on the light for sewing machine. To make me get to it.

One of my cats left a gift under stairs near the litter box. (thanks buddies (d:)

But alas here I am. Now what?

So hard to stay on task. My mind was sidetracked this morning when I recieved a group text from my sister. She has many problems that I do not understand, don’t want to either. It has always been a struggle to understand some of the things she does, why so angry, hateful, unreasonable…I don’t know. I miss her but not her stuff that she contributes to. or mainly starts and makes up.
