    Finished my first editing session. Starving. Lol. Too early to eat. I might have a snack, though. Sometime this afternoon I'll start editing again, plus work on the historical's paperback version. (I've almost decided to pub it on Ingram Sparks instead of KDP.) And I need to work on my blog article.

    "Pretty Woman" on Prime Video. I LOVE this movie and I STILL know it word for word: "Yeah, I was in here yesterday? You wouldn't wait on me? You work in commission, right? Big mistake. BIG. Huge! I have to go shopping now!"

    Very quietly celebrating National Coming Out Day. Two years ago yesterday I came publicly out of the closet. After half a bottle of liquid courage, that is. I was deathly afraid of the repercussions from my family, but the alcohol gave me enough bravery to do the damn thang. And I did.

    My mom surprised the hell out of me by supporting me as I am. SHE told me, "You've raised your kids, now it's your turn to live your life for YOU. If loving a woman makes you happy, go for it! You're still my baby girl, and I will always love you and support you." I thought for sure she would disown me, she often talked about gay being an abomination.

    Only my older sister doesn't support me, but she's of the type that one, LGBTQIA+ is a sin, and two, you can "pray away the gay." As Callie Torres shouted in Grey's Anatomy, "You can't pray away the gay!" In fact, Sis posted on my FB once that she was disappointed to see I like Grey's BECAUSE "it promotes homosexual relationships." News flash, big sis, I'm a lesbian.

    I'm out, and living my truth loudly. I am also healing from my past loudly. It is my hope that my healing loudly will prevent someone else from dying quietly.

    Shopping for bedding on Amazon. My new bed is a platform twin size. It, sheets and pillow, desk, and dressor are gifts from Brittany. Sissy's getting me an office chair. Anyway, I picked out a white chennelle bedspread with fringe, a boho throw, and a blanket. She closes on Monday, October 25, and we'll likely move on the 29th or the 6th.

    Chilling in my husbands office. Friday was supposed to be my last day at my job before I start my new job, but I got massively pissed off yesterday when I learned that they are stealing $2800 worth of personal hours from me. I wasted much oxygen arguing with the manager about it yesterday, and got absolutely no where. So after talking to my husband we decided that I have no incentive to ride out my last week. I have enough call-in hours (Protected Paid Time Off or PPTO in Walmart speak) to cover the rest of the week, and I might as well use them up! So I came into town with hubby early this morning, and I snuck into the back room, cleaned out my locker, and now I am hanging out in hubby's office casually cleaning and organizing and doing the stuff he doesn't have time to do.
    Missing my Pa every day. RIP Daddy ❤️♥️

    Good for you sassy I hated working at walmart, it's not a great place to work, they treat their employees like shit, if Mr. Walton was still alive that wouldn't fly, I met him once, he was a very nice, down to earth man, who didn't dress like the millionaire, billionaire? that he was.

    Trying to remember what I was going to blog about....I had an idea earlier this morning on the way to work. I didn't write it down, so forgot it....something to do with DID and trauma response...but exactly WHAT escapes me....

    Fixing to watch a few episodes of Anne with an e (Anne of Green Gables) on Netflix. I just snapped up all the books in the series for $4.99 on Amazon. It's a child's story but it's dark and heartbreaking. She went through hell in orphanages until she was 13. It's just...

    Waiting on my ride to my GF's. HER friend is in my town visiting someone and is heading to GF's town tonight. She's supposed to swing by and grab me before heading in that direction....been waiting for almost 6 hours now. GF and I plan to drink this weekend, I'm already starting. LOL.

    GF had texted me about 4:30 this afternoon, I had gotten off work at 4, and was finishing up a super late lunch before going to catch the bus home. I'd TOLD her to have her friend just come get me, bring me to my place to feed the cat, change clothes, and pack a bag. Had she done that, I'd have been there by now.

    This middle of the night stuff is messing with my sleep schedule. Last time I went to spend a weekend with her, it was a spur-of-the-moment middle-of-the-night call and trip. Her friend showed up about 2am to pick me up, we didn't get there till about 4am, GF wanted to talk and drink for a while, and by 6am I was snoring on the couch. And sleep was catty-whompus and took several days to regulate again.

    We're seriously discussing me moving in with her. BUT I'm waiting to be sure because I do NOT want to end up breaking up with her be in a city where I know NO ONE. Where I am, I know SOME people. But in GF's town? I know NO ONE. Not a single soul. And I always said my next move will be for a woman, and WILL BE my last. I detest moving with a white-hot burning passion. It's why right now half my stuff is still packed, only what I use daily is out.

    However, I did find out the Freddy's there is the same franchise as my store, so IF I end up moving? I can transfer. I'll just have to figure out where the store is and how to get there from GF's place and if I can take buses there and back, bus schedules, etc. Yes, she could take me and pick me up on her way to and from work, but she's in home health care and works long hours. IF I move, I'd either find a new job closer to her place OR find a work from home job.

    SO. Right now? I'm not waiting and have already started drinking. I'm on drink number two, in a lidded cup with straw so I can just take it with me when my ride eventually shows up....

    Well I never did get to my girl's place. The friend she sent to pick me up never showed. I had TOLD GF to have her girl be here at my place at a certain time. Give me an hour to get home, get a shower, pack an overnight bag, set out extra food and water for Ella.

    At the chosen time, I texted GF, "I'm ready to go." GF tried to get hold of HER friend, whom I knew from the last time I went over, but the girl wouldn't answer the phone OR call my GF back. *rolls eyes* WHICH meant I never got to my girl's house. To say we were both fit to be tied would be an understatement. *grumbles*

    Anyway, GF is supposed to come to me next week. My work schedule is cattywhompus again. I worked yesterday and today, work tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday. Off Sunday, work Monday, off Tuesday, work Wednesday through Saturday. I'm unavailable Sunday due to transportation unless someone wants to come get me AND take me home.

    I am not getting my hopes up about GF coming until I get the "on my way" text OR she just shows up at work. Because she says whenever she comes to see me she'll just aim to be at my work about the time I get off to get me. Which works, because I get off at 5 on weekdays, bus comes for home at 5:35, and I actually GET home about 6:45. Saturdays bus for home comes at 4:50, and I STILL get home about 6:45. It's easier if she just meet me at work when I'm off rather than wait here until I get home.

    Rough day physically today. Work went okay, mental health has been okay, but today was DEFINITELY a "no bones" day. If you're on TikTok, there's a guy with a little pug named Noodle. He stands Noodle up every morning for his walk, and determines if it'll be a bones day or a no bones day. If Noodle stays standing, it's a bones day. If he slumps back down in his bed, it's a no bones day.

    So today for me was definitely a no bones day. My legs decided they didn't want to work. I turned too fast a couple of times at work today and almost went down. I've had issues with that since I was a kid. Supposedly I'm in a book of medical marvels in Texas, but I haven't seen any evidence. By all rights I should be in a wheelchair, but I am fiercely and stubbornly independent and insist on getting back up on my feet every time.

    Wobbly legs, tried to give out SO MANY times....tomorrow is a new day to try again.

    I have those days too, but it's my lack of balance due to my being deaf. Get better soon.

    Thanks. Just like I have good and bad mental health days, I have good and bad movement days too. For the most part, the more I move the less I hurt (with the osteoarthritis throughout my body), but on a "no bones day," moving can get difficult. But my stubborn heinie insists in going along, business as usual. I hadn't had a "bad movement day" in YEARS so I hadn't mentioned it. I'd taken it for granted. Then woke up three days ago, to weak and wobbly legs.

    I have been eating, so I wasn't malnourished or having low blood sugar issues. Due to work schedules on both our parts, I haven't been able to be with my girlfriend for a little over a month so there was no GOOD reason to be "weak in the knees." Believe me, I'd MUCH rather that be the case, but no. Doctors don't know WHAT'S going on, so I'm not wasting my time, my money, OR their time going to doctors.

    As a kid, they'd narrowed it down to MS, MD, or ALS, but still don't know. ALL of which end in life in a wheelchair and an early death. Again, my stubborn heinie refuses to accept that.
