What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

There’s a lot on my mind these days. Most of which you probably don’t want to hear about. Aside from the current political situation, which has me wanting to scream, there are a few other things on my mind.

First, I’ve just not had the motivation to write. I don’t know why. I have a lot of ideas, including notes I have jotted down for future reference. I can’t even bring myself to sit down on a daily basis and read the blogs I follow. I’m just lost…basically going through the motions. I just don’t have any motivation to do anything.

I had my 2nd Covid vaccine on Tuesday so in 2 weeks I am getting my hair cut! I’m so sick of this mop that’s been growing for over a year! I was worried that I’d be sick, like some people do after their 2nd shot. I was a little more achier than normal and my arm hurts like a mother, but it wasn’t too bad. Of course, I started taking Tylenol every 8 hours the day before my appointment, and made sure to stay hydrated. I think that helped.

Recently, I was diagnosed with lymphedema and was referred for lymphedema therapy. Of course, my insurance won’t cover it so I had to apply for financial aid. I finally got the financial aid and made the appointment. Turns out I really don’t have lymphedema – yet. If left untreated this will turn into lymphedema. I got a massage that will help get my lymphatic system moving as it should, and I was taught how to do this myself as well. The therapist wrapped my legs, showing me how to do it, and I was on my way. I will see her again next week. I’m hoping for another massage! Snort!

I find myself thinking more and more about my past self. You know, the person I used to be. I used to be a cross-country backpacker, a great cook, a soap and bath & body maker, and a jewelry maker. I can’t do any of those things anymore. I can’t stand, sit, or walk for long periods of time so all of these things are very difficult, if not impossible for me to do. I’d give anything to just be able to take a freakin’ walk!

But I am grateful for everything I have. I have a roof over my head, a wonderful family, great friends, fur babies who give me headbutts and cuddles, and I can still walk, albeit with crutches and very slowly. I have my Dad who is my comic relief and I swear, the best thing is when Dad and I think of the same funny thing at the same time, and we don’t have to say a word because we know exactly what the other is thinking!

I’m going to focus on the good in my life. I mean, I try to do that anyway but I’ve been a bit down this past few weeks and I need to pull myself out of this slump! I need to find something that motivates me and snap out of it! There used to be plenty of things in my life that motivated me but it seems like those things are lost or just hiding from me.

Friday’s Funnies

Happy Friday! I’m a bit worn out this evening so I hope what I type here makes sense. It seems my brain works in slow motion when I’m exhausted, if it works at all.

I took Dad to his Lifeline Screening today and the tests themselves didn’t take long at all. It was the long wait that about drove me insane. They said “No Guests Allowed” which meant only he could come in due to Covid precautions. That’s fine and dandy, but you’d think people would know how to schedule things so they wouldn’t fall so far behind. Anyway, I sat in the car, using their Wi-Fi to download my Audible books. So there!

I have more funnies to share this week than I had last week. I just hope they’re up to par. Be sure to let me know which were your favorites!

Here we go!

I don’t know about you, but the ones that made me laugh most are KFC Sides, Margarita Truck, and Boating Gone Wrong! Spill it! Which were your faves? I do hope you found this collection enough to make you chuckle!

Well, here’s to a great weekend! Remember it’s better to be safe than sorry so wear a mask and keep your distance.

Until next week,

Aunt Debbie

Whisker Wednesday

I’ve been writing non-stop (not really, just a LOT) on my Ex-Files “book” for my children and I just can’t think of much to write about here, in my blog, when I sit down to write. Too much is going on in my brain; personal things as well as things going on in the world today. My brain is overwhelmed with ‘stuff’ so I decided to just keep it light and post a few photos of the Pack.

Jack’s Pack can be found on Facebook, and if you don’t already follow Being Aunt Debbie on Facebook, then the link is below.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is Jack. He’s the Leader of The Pack, and a real love bug. He loves to be wherever I am, even if I’m trying to work my jigsaw puzzles!

This is Alice. She likes to sleep on my face at night. She either loves me that much or she wants to suffocate me to put an end to my infernal singing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This Honey Bear, Honey for short. The fat thing can barely get out of the cat door onto the Catio. The door is for a medium sized dog. It should be big enough for a cat, right? She just can’t lose weight!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And last but not least, this is Kitty. She my senior cat; the only senior I have left. In 2017 and 2018 I lost my other 3 seniors. Kitty will be 15 years old in May. She’s a bit psycho but she can be sweet. She’s sweeter now than she used to be. It’s hard to get a good photo of her because she’s always moving her head back and forth to make sure nothing’s going to get her!

So, there’s Jack’s Pack. My 4 furbabies. Do you have furbabies? Dogs? Cats? Or maybe non-furbabies like an Iguana? I’d love to see a post about your fur- or non-fur family!

Friday’s Funnies

I’m about to blow a gasket! Good grief! I have been having issues with my computer today and just when I have everything figured out, I log in to my WordPress account and find that they have made changes to the media download process! It’s just a pain in the ass now! Nothing is working the way it did before!! So, if this post comes out wonky, it’s not my fault! WordPress, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Sheesh!

This isn’t a huge collection. I don’t know why. I’ve been saving them all week but they seem to have disappeared! Anyway, I hope you like them, and just like every week, please share your faves in the comments!

My fave this week: Sarchotic and Eucalyze Legayptus! I hope you found a few enough to elicit a chuckle! 

I think I’ve had enough of this computer, my phone, and every other thing that has anything to do with technology. I’m going to shower and work a jigsaw puzzle. Have a great weekend! Be good, peeps. 

Signing out for now,

What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

Oh, so many things are eating at me these days. It seems the state of this country is in the toilet. Everything is such a mess! It’s exhausting and I know I’m not alone in feeling the way I do. Here’s a quick run-down of What’s Eating Aunt Debbie:

  1. You’d think the damn police would be on their best behavior these days and following procedure, to-the-letter, to protect themselves and their department from bad publicity and lawsuits. But no. More police shootings occur. More wrongful deaths happen. Unnecessary violent treatment on routine traffic stops. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! You don’t need to draw your gun on a routine traffic stop. You don’t need to shoot an unarmed person! There is no need for excessive force when you’ve already got the suspect on the ground and handcuffed! You do NOT need to shoot a man in the back!
  2. Joel Greenberg, Seminole County, FL tax collector faces a total of 33 federal charges…including sex trafficking, fraud, and bribery. What the hell is wrong with people these days? Give them an inch, they take a mile. LOCK HIM UP! What scumbag will have that position next?
  3. Matt Gaetz. Where to start? The investigation into Greenberg led the feds to Matt Gaetz, who faces charges of sex trafficking and sex with a minor. Gaetz reportedly asked then-President Trump for a blanket pardon. Who the hell does that? Requesting a blanket pardon tells me all I need to know about someone. Another scumbag in politics. LOCK HIM UP! 
  4. Many people, when asked why they have a problem with the LGBTQ Community, they will say, “that way of life is against my religion.” That’s ridiculous. Their lifestyle doesn’t have a damn thing to do with you. If GOD thinks it’s a problem then let GOD take care of it! Here’s a thought: If God created everyone, then he also created every single gay, lesbian, trans etc., person in the world. Maybe God created them the way they are. Maybe it’s all a part of God’s plan. Maybe God is trying to teach us all something! Pay attention!

Well, that sums up the bullshit that’s clouding my brain this this time around. I’m sure more will come next week! What’s eating you these days?

If you don’t like what I have to say that’s your prerogative. This is my blog and I’ll express my opinion as I please. Just remember, I know how to delete comments and ban people from my blog/page
