Posted in Christmas in Florida, Florida life everyday

Office Chair in my office is empty right now it’s full of stuff I haven’t unpacked yet and and and …. catching up here … whew 2020 has been a normal year for me. Hey I’ve had worse.

I bought a skirt that didn’t fit I stuck that in my chair I need to catch up with everyone around here.

What in the world was that in the last month?

I’ve been in La La Land & yes I said that. Too much has been going on and top of the holiday season, I started a new job teaching after being furloughed back in March. So I said to myself big deal . I’m 57 & I’ve seen more jobs than God. Yeah not much bothers me anymore it does but it doesn’t.

With the people in the work for keep calling me right after the summer was over begging me to come in and help them out.turns out, my masters degree goes a little farther than some restaurant or hospitality job that other people haven’t lost their jobs due to the fact of thatWith the people in the work for keep calling me right after the summer was over begging me to come in and help them out. Turns out, my masters degree goes a little farther than some restaurant or hospitality job that other people haven’t lost their jobs due to the fact of that.

I just think it’s kind of hilarious still a lot of 20s somethings and 30 somethings are driving themselves crazy about this bad year when I know in my heart that they’ve never had anything bad happening to them = YET.

I think yet has happened and they’re still moaning and whining and complaining. This year is nothing compared to what I have experienced since 1985. I tell them off then working as long as you’ve been alive and this is just how it rolls.

And I’m smiling on the inside because I’m finally getting to the point where you have a certain amount of strength inside when stuff does go wrong or happens that you feel like yourself and you know that not much can bother you and in you just give a raspberry salute to the bother.

I could give a rock litany of her all the stuff I’m hearing on social media and other places about how a lot of these crazy millennial’s don’t have insurance anymore. Hey you whiny little blips I haven’t had insurance since 2016. My husband had to be put on special insurance due to his diabetes and I’m not gonna say what that is. Don’t ask, because it’s none of your business. He retires at more than likely 62 and gets Medicare in about 2 to 3 years so I’m holding my breath until then.

Moving on from all of the whining and complaining about 2020, I’d like to say a few positive things that is going to come from this wonderful year 2020 that taught us a whole lot. I think these people have never had anything bad happened to them are finally gonna come out ahead and say gee, I’m still me and people who are selfish will continue to be selfish if they haven’t changed.

Here goes the litany of all that I have experience in a condensed style version.

Car payment? I’ve lost dozens of cars in my 20s and 30s. Even been on the side of the road a few times without AAA and without a cell phone . Back then you had a walk several miles to the nearest phone and call for a tow truck that you paid for without a credit card or beg a family member to come get you and figure out how to get the car off the side of the road.

Job loss?Before I got my Masters, I did tons of temporary agency job work right before the year I was married and I worked two other jobs.

I cannot help but keep thinking about all the people I ran into the second time around at my alma mater Franciscan University in Steubenville Ohio because of how naive and avoid of reality many of them are. Those people? The majority of them are theology majors and have no business telling the church how to be or how to live. But the bottom line on this paragraph is forget that tangent because unless I took a picture of them you’re not going to get what I’m going to describe in words. Or unless there was a video of how their behaviour act, you’re not gonna understand why many of them have Big issues. It’s very clear here and I don’t like many of them because they’re the first ones to complain in the Florida sheet and so on.they ever show up I’m going to make sure I understood I make you understand why they have issues.

Moving on last night, my husband finally emptied the last box in the living room living area.

He is such a cool guy I was so tired & down because the holidays are getting to me. I just don’t do well when people say it’s going to be a perfect holiday! Whose idea of perfect? How did they come to this idea of perfect? Can they write an essay on the perfect idea of perfect?

Oh yeah before I moved, I bought a 2005 Saturn VUEAWD6 cylinder car for about $1000. Somewhat of a big mistake is what the home crediting myself now. Well you got me from point a to B to be for 2 1/2 months. No real loss there because I got all my money back in wages. But because of the pandemic the local tax office that does the DMV had no appointments and I had to go to the next county over to register and transfer the car when I bought it. S

So, because my mechanic is in Saint Petersburg I waited until after I bought the car for him to look at it.my mechanic is in Saint Petersburg I waited until after I bought the car for him to look at it. I drove the car to his shop after work. Next day, he calls me up and says why did you buy this car? There is massive amounts of rust underneath the undercarriage of this car.

Fla me says to the old mechanic, “ why would there be rust?” Mechanic: “ don’t you know anything about how the roads up north or salted and cause rust on the car?” Me: “that causes rust?”

Can’t I get a welder to fix it?

Long story short – my dear mechanic did not charge me for anything however, he made me sign that the car is not safe to drive. I seriously wonder how he would’ve got into work if you were me in the last two months. I think these people are total weenie heads. I said that. I wrote that. I don’t think their problem solvers are basically telling myself I’m going to need a new mechanic coming up. It happens sometimes doctors just stop prove themselves or your professional people are just not right for you and other stuff like that that makes you wanna move on.

So I called AAA to tow me away from there and I got home the next day and have been back to taking lifting Uber rides back and forth to work. Well I did call AAA, I took them nearly for ever to get me home.then they come back& say to me that I can’t ride in the car with them so I had to spend some more money for Lyft& in Uber ride due to Covid 19.

I’m very tired of greedy people are very tired of hypocritical greedy people. this is why I couldn’t support Trump. This is why I don’t like the current Fla governor. Everybody told him it’s the absolute godforsaken pro-life governor who wants to get rid of abortion and I knew it was hype!

So what does he do nervously in the last few weeks? He rolls out the vaccine against cover that is MODERNA which is made from aborted baby parts protein. Oh he’s just bringing it all in after saying that he is so pro-life.

I don’t wanna go on and on here but I feel like just going up to Tallahassee is sticking his face on it. I’m so over all of this I just wanna make them pay for the lies that they said I want everything to go back to normal if normal it did exist.

Then, I thought about it last night. Their abnormal idea of normal is extremely extremely over the top superficial to cover up something that’s not going on inside of them.

So what? My Christmas is not normal & I have a tree up. Finally, I’ve got the tree up . Hey folks, I finally found the box with the Christmas tree and all the decorations.. And the star is up against the ceiling .

Merry Christmas and so what? It’s not perfect but at the end of 2020 and I’m going to be stronger than your average person who had a go through this.

Next blog entry during my two week teacher vacation = tell not to be superficial had some spiritual deep thoughts on how to get over being disillusioned by people who support Trump.

I am working on it! that’s not perfect either I think we just got a roll and a 2021 and I’m going to move on.
