SLAP Tear – Surgery, Recovery, And Asking for Help

Posted by miss m on Monday, July 31, 2017 @ 11:13pm in Blog, Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

On Friday, July 28th, following an MRI Arthrogram, I was diagnosed with a SLAP Tear; specifically, “Left superior labral tear extending along the posterior superior quadrant.” I’m going to need surgery which is going to leave me with one arm for months, unable to drive, work, or support myself in anyway. So I’m asking for […]

How Disney and Marvel Ruined My Christmas

Posted by miss m on Thursday, December 11, 2014 @ 11:30am in Blog, Customer Service, Finances, General Blather, Holidays |

I ordered the Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes starter set from the Shop Marvel website for $39.99 on November 26th. Christmas gift for my guy. I add an Iron Man cell phone case as filler to get free shipping. A few days later, I also buy a couple extra figures on amazon during a sale. […]

We’ve Gone Rogue

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 @ 1:11pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love, Photography and Pics |

As you may have read previously, Love was in a serious car accident the morning of Friday, August 1st on his way to work. He had a sudden, catastrophic brake failure and, unable to stop or swerve enough, he collided with the minivan in front of him at about 40-45mph. He came out of the […]

Hooray for May!

I can’t believe that (1) it’s May already and that (2) that means it’s also now less than two weeks until my birthday!! Eek! I’ll be a whopping 37 come May 16th. 😉 Meanwhile, today is the so-called, “Star Wars Day” (May the 4th be with you!) and Love and I spent the afternoon out […]

Love’s Birthday With A Side of Car Trouble

Posted by miss m on Thursday, February 20, 2014 @ 11:59am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love |

Blarg. Tuesday (the 18th) was Love’s birthday. We’re a little broke right now so we didn’t have huge plans to do anything. We were hungry so I figured we could make a special trip out to this little hole in the wall place he went as a kid with his grandfather for lunch. Problem was, […]

Ginger’s Spay

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, September 3, 2013 @ 1:01pm in Finances, General Blather, kitties, Love |

Now that I finally have my car back (after a month of Love needing to drive it while we saved up to get his fixed), I was able to call the Spay and Neuter Clinic and make an appointment for Ginger’s spay. It’s for TOMORROW (September 4th) and I’m all nervous now. I know it’s […]

Love’s car has been on the fritz and about two weeks ago, he “parked” it until we could save up for the repairs. In the meantime he’s been taking my car to work, leaving me stuck the apartment with no way to get out and do anything. It’s driving me crazy. We’re about halfway to […]

And There Went July

Posted by miss m on Monday, July 29, 2013 @ 12:02am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Grief, kitties |

So…yeah. Another month [nearly] gone and only a lone entry thus far to mark it’s passage. That’s just sad. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for like two weeks now but it never seems like I have the time. Plus, summers are dull in Florida; all the locals hibernate from the sweltering heat and […]

Playing catch-up in photos… I managed to get the village up around the tree the night before my craft market but I still haven’t gotten my monorail up yet: Of course, you know what that means. Tree + village = Gracie! The craft market went great. Not only did I have a pleasant amount of […]

It’s All About the Money

Posted by miss m on Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 11:43pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Good news is that we got Love’s car fixed Friday. We’re back to a two car household and the horrible, destructive whine of the compressor grinding itself to bits is no more. The bad news is that it cost more then we planned: $789.54 I had been planning on $700 so the extra hundred hurts. […]

4th Time the Charm?

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 @ 11:23am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather |

If it’s true that Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, then it’s probably time for my white coat and padded room. Because I need to try and make something work that hasn’t been successful the past three very expensive attempts. Let me tell you about my Tuesday. The […]
