Hello! Longtime No Me!

Yep, it has been a while. I’ve been so busy dealing with everyday life. Plus my fish, RCIA, and work.  No, the annulments have not yet gone through, Well I take that back. One has.  My husband’s last sociopathic ex-wife. The one who has been remarried over, and over, and over since their divorce. Oh yes, and she ended up in prison for being a prostitute in Kenai & Nikiski posing as a masseuse lol. That annulment went through lickety split.

The other ex-wife of his, as it turns out,  was never Catholic. Anyhow, he and I are still waiting on our annulments. I may end up still attending RCIA through next year if they don’t happen soon. Mind you, I enjoy learning, and Catholicism is fascinating; however, I want to go deeper than what RCIA is teaching. I haven’t a lot of time as it is to delve deeper on my own. I am attending a Bible class once a week too. We are studying the book of Acts, and it is exciting. Those Apostles are amazing. All but John end up dying, and they died for their beliefs. Paul got stoned twice so far. How he survived that is beyond me!

I got a new fish. A wee little neon goby. Bless its heart. It had ich. It was so sick. It’s still in quarantine for two more weeks.  It has perked way up, and so far no ich since I did the container switch method. Hopefully, it doesn’t break out again. It’s a cutie. I’ve been feeding it live brine shrimp. Tonight she surprised me. I dropped in some flakes for the two tiny hermit crabs I have in her tank  to keep her company.  She was on those flakes scarfing away. First time ever!  She is swimming every where too, and she is no longer in hiding. Yay!

I have my second 20 gallon set up. I have the tank to turn into a sump for it too, but just haven’t had the energy nor the time.  The protein skimmer is in to add to it.  I just have to do it. Maybe this weekend. We will see.I’m exhausted. I have to go to the grocery store tomorrow. Dave won’t go by himself now, that is if he can help it.He gets confused so easily. I looked at him hard the other day. He has lost so much weight. He looks so frail. It made me realize that I won’t have that awesome man in my life forever. I love him so much. In fact, more and more every day. I can’t imagine my life without him. So I’m trying to fatten him up. He needs to gain some weight. That last knee surgery really wore him down.

Someone stole my crayons today.~Grrr~ A young woman had a disabled person with her and asked if she could borrow them to keep her entertained, while she was  there to be advised or something. (I work for a university) So stupid me, I said yes, and she promised to return them. Ha! I kept  crayons to entertain the wee ones while the parents come for academic advising. The big plastic animals for toddlers to play with that I had there walked off too. ~sigh~ I know who took those. That woman thinks everything belongs to her, and there is no reasoning with her. Tomorrow I’ll go to Value Village and see if I can’t get some things  for the children and a bag to put them in.I’ll definitely put my name on everything this time.

I did have fun decorating a vase today in hopes that when the  little sign is read on it, people will make donations to the Goodie Fund. They love eating the goodies, so hopefully a few more will see the fancy donation jar and pitch in.Mind you I love making students happy, but being an admin  for a university, I’m not paid a lot.  I do what I can though.  I like seeing the students smiling, and staff & faculty too.

It’s 7:18 pm, and I’m off to bed. It’s been a hard week.

Sweet dreams. kj

 

 

 

My Sweet Sally

I hope I can get back into my writing again.  My life had been crazy  for a couple of years, and I was doing classes too.

Now I’m in RCIA and love it. I can’t get enough. There is so much to learn and I will never be able to learn everything before I die. 😦  I love our little church.  It’s a sweet place and 90% of the people are good and kind. Yes, there are a few snobs, but that is their problem.

I got to feed my Sally Lightfoot this evening by hand or rather chop stick haha.  She is a doll.  Actually she is a marine crab.  It has taken me a couple of months to get her to this point. She is a timid thing and cute as can be. I love all animals. I find marine life fascinating.

Catholic Anullment

Has anyone out there experienced a Catholic annulment?  I’m going through one right now, and it is so stressful.

I thought the petition was the only document I had to write. Ha!  The last two weekends ,I have been  completing a document of 42 questions. I would have been done earlier than later, but my questionnaire document corrupted. I lost half a day of writing. ~aargh~

So it is submitted, and I’m anxious.  Will my ex respond and participate or not? If he does will he try to sabotage the whole process? He’s not a nice person. He’s a sociopath that takes pleasure in hurting others including animals.  I was with him a long 18.5 years. He kept me under control by threatening to kill the animals; our pets and farm creatures.

So I wait. He has until the 18th to answer three questions.

 

Frustrated to no end

I found my class assignment quite frustrating today. I’m pretty proficient with Social Media, but Google Plus is giving me a great big headache.

I’m suppose to share from my Feedly anything I find interesting on Google plus.I even tried Delicious. I hit the Icon for Google plus, and it should show up under the +1 tab in profile. It worked months ago but no longer. Instead it shows up under the posts tab only. What am I doing wrong? It’s frustrating me to no end, and I’ve wasted a day tinkering with it. I’ve messaged my instructor, but she is away from her computer. Tis time for a margarita.

Mind you I am 53 years old. I’m taking a class in Access next semester. Once completed, I will receive my certificate in Computer applications. I’ve been trying for it since 2002. Life kept getting in the way, or I would have been finished by now. I so wanted to get an AAS, but I have no desire to spend another 7 years pursuing it. My job is stressful and hard. Top it off, when I go home, my sweet hubby will not leave me alone, even when he knows I am studying. He can’t help it. He has dementia. It affects his boundaries. Regardless, I love him. I’m blessed to have him. I pray I’m retired by the time he needs me home for full time care giving. I don’t want just anyone caring for him. The caregivers in this town don’t care about their patients other than one I know. Maybe I will be lucky and the one I know will be available at that time.

Why on Earth – Nasty People?

What sort of person wipes their excrement all over a public bathroom stall in a university?  Mind you, this is an adult.  A woman.  What on earth would posses someone to do this?  Who are they angry at?  The poor janitors have to clean that mess up.   That person is  hurting the janitors by  such a filthy act.  I feel so sorry for them.   Their jobs are hard enough.  ~shaking head in disbelief~
