I never title my posts until I am finished writing them. How about you? Do you start with a title or the body of your post? It just occurs to me that maybe I am a bit weird in this respect.
It’s a cold day here in southern Maine. I been freezing all damned day. I got up this morning a little later than usual for me….I am usually up by 6 am but today I slept until 9. Have been fighting being cold ever since emerging from my warm, snuggly bed. I know. It is November and I should expect to be chilly. Doesn’t mean I like it though. And you all know Ijust hate winter anyway…and winter is in the air for sure. T may even snow today.
I took some time today and stopped at the barber shop and got a nice fresh haircut. It feels great to have it shaved back to my normal Butch style. Tips #3 blade on top and a #1.5 blade on the sides and back. Squared off and edged out nicely. Nothing makes me feel better about myself like a good visit to the barber. I did grow it out to about 3 inches on top….but it was driving me crazy. I do much better with my normal crew cut. I was not meant to sport longer locks.
I’ve been doing much better this past week. Been feeling a lot better and have had a good week all around. Spent a good deal of my days working, which was okay. I spent some needed time with my Mom and I got things done.
I’ve been chatting with a very sweet woman that I know. I am pretty shy but I’m trying hard. I struggle with letting people get too close to me sometimes. Hell, all the time! I am afraid of getting too close and getting hurt yet again. I have stayed clear of online stuff for a good long time now. The last time I got my heart handed to me it was someone I met online. I don’t care to repeat that episode. I’ve also decided that you can’t get back together with anyone. Once you split up its over . Getting back together is akin to trying to put crap back where it comes from…and that is just impossible. Thus I am moving into new territory. I am enjoying my current situation and chatting with the new girl. I do hope it is something I can build on and take a bit further. It would be great to have a steady woman in my life.
Lulu and Nola are doing quite well. Lu’s itching issue is a bit better with the use of some benadryl and some hydrocortisone spray as a topical treatment. Thanks to those who replied to my blog about the problem. I have done a lot of research and have concluded it is a dermatitis caused by her being allergic to something. I am just not sure what it issues reacting to. I gather her in a tea tree shampoo which helped her quite a bit. And whatever it is is not affecting Nola at all, which is great.
The presidential election is this coming Tuesday. I have very mixed feelings about it. Will be really glad when it’s over…I think. I am petrified about the possibility of the outcome if Trump gets elected. I am afraid he will piss off the whole world and make us look like fools. Not that he hassn’t already done that byeverunning on his platform of hate. If he’s elected I also fear how much war he will involve us in around the globe. If she gets in office I am also not sure how I will feel. It’s a battle for sure. Pour country is perched on the great divide at the moment.
Recently I bought a used Pontiac Grand Prix car. Now I am not sure about it. I’ve discovered that it’s going to cost me quite a bit to put it on the road and funds are tight right now. With winter upon me and oil bills coming soon I just can’t afford another big expense . Social considering selling the car at a profit. I bought it very cheap in a fast sale from a friend. I know I can sell I for quite a bit more. Selling it could help me out with some current bills and oil purchases this winter. It’s probably my best bet. I will take a good picture of it and list of online this week most likely.
I have been hanging out with my good friend Linda a lot lately. It’s nice to have someone around to talk to and to prepare meals with and do fun things with. She is a very straight friend, which is something I don’t even care about because shesjust a good soul to be around. We do lots of stuff together like visit the thrift stores and ride around town to do errands together.
I am fully back on my hiv meds once again. That could have something to do with me feeling better as some of the meds are my anti depressants. I have set up my alarm on my phone to remind me to take them and I located my med holders to places where I am reminded too. Ts a bitch to have to take these meds all the time but I was reminded this last week that they are giving me a second chance and also aid in keeping me healthy. My next test and doctors appointment is in December.
OK friends, followers and cyber stalkers I have filled you in on most everything for this week. I shall wrap it up here and go to co some chicken quesadillas for dinner. I hope you all have a great time this week! Remember to go VOTE on Tuesday! Peace. –MB
