Well, here I am, the walking wounded.
Went to get into my truck this afternoon and my hand slipped on the seat.
I have some strained muscles in my right forearm.
I can type ok, but I can't reach up to comb my hair.

Doc said it's not broken, but I'm going to hurt for a few days.
Boy, sometimes I just wonder if it's old age
Or I'm just a plain old clutz....

Was heading home from the store this afternoon
Two cars in front of me. One silver. One dark blue.
Both wanted to make a left out of the lot.
After the aid car went by the silver car made his turn...

He pulled a u-turn, right in front of the blue car, back into the parking lot....
Boy and they call me crazy.... :roll:

My computer died a few days ago which is why I haven't been around much lately,

I don't like using this old laptop much, it has no security on it.

I'm supposed to be getting a new computer on Friday, so I'l try to catch up with everything then.

Meanwhile everyone stay cool, or warm as the case may be. :D

Tookish_Traveler wrote:Who?

How?

When?


*orders some cake*

Umm okay.

Who: a good Catholic girl from a remote village on a tropical island in the Pacific. Beautiful, educated (an accountant), fun, plays guitar, sings, loves architecture and dreams of traveling the world. Just about the kindest person I've ever met.

How: met online on a travel blog when I began researching for my trip, met up in the Manila airport in November, had an absolutely perfect adventure together, did some awesome stuff like riding horses towards the world's smallest active volcano on an island in a lake that is on an island in a lake (dizzy yet?). By the end of it we pretty much knew that she was my missing rib (her words). We had seriously amazing compatibility (translation: she had me wrapped around her little finger), and we are both overdue for starting a family and having children. Met her cousins, met her parents. Let's just say that the decision to get married organically evolved without either of us fully realizing that a decision was even being made. We just casually began discussing it as a done deal at some point and started referring to our trip as "first honeymoon". (We plan to have 3 wedding celebrations and 4 honeymoons in total).

When: June 25, in Tbilisi, Georgia. The country, not the US state. We couldn't marry in Israel due to the quirks of local marriage laws and getting married in the Philippines would've taken us up to two months and I could not afford to lose so much income or take two months off work during high season. So we applied for a Germany visa for wifey so that I could introduce her to my famiy and we could get married in Prague. The Germans refused her, so we started looking for a country where she either didn't need a visa or could get one easily. Thailand looked promising but it would still take us a minimum of 3 weeks to register marriage. Georgia turned out to be the best option because getting their visa is much like ordering something on Amazon - send a passport scan and a photo, pay $20, get it delivered within a week. Because it was close to Europe, my sister and her husband came to attend the wedding and joined us on the trip around Georgia a.k.a. second honeymoon. My parents couldn't attend for health reasons. Registering marriage took 3 hours and cost $350 for everything including a car with a personal driver taking is to and from the Justice House and giving us a trip to the Turtle lake while we were waiting for our documents to be processed. And we only needed to show our passports, not even a documented proof of not being married!

(If any of you are planning a trip abroad, Georgia is an absolute gem these days. Amazing food, even better wine, gorgeous mountains, vibrant culture and everything is surprisingly cheap. We had dinner for 9 people in a restaurant in Old Tbilisi with meat, grilled salmon, wine etc. and entertainment program of Georgian folk dances and live singing, all for under $100. A taxi ride in Tbilisi is about $2. A private day tour in an air conditioned minivan to the Kakheti wine region with wine sampling or to the famous Kazbegi mountain and the Caucasus ridge is $100, which for us meant $25 per person. And they have wine flavored ice cream!).

Re: The TVM on vacation!!! here! Not there!

Postby IrisBrandybuck » Thu Aug 23, 2018 7:28 pm

Are you both living in Israel now? I guess that would be a yes, eh? ;) So, how does the citizenship thing work for her now? Will she have to apply or is it automatic once your married?

And did you say family??? Or am I jumping to conclusions? ;)

:hug: :hug: :hug:


So...I had something happen yesterday...I'm going to do my best to make this short. I've been attending a bible study at my church since...I think around February. Early spring at any rate. Several months. They'd been ongoing, and people come in and out depending on what the study is. The one I joined in on was Revelation, and I decided to keep with it. Anyhow, for the most part it's been a good group, except for one person. He's been a pain in my side almost from day one (fyi, save for two new people to the church, I pretty much already knew everyone in the group to some degree). So, anyhow, this guy has two things he harps on. The first is the change in services a few years ago that resulted in several people leaving (it's been long enough now that hardly anyone talks about it...except him) and his hatred of cats. Yeah. So, most everyone knows I'm a cat person. Most everyone is cool with that. And I generally don't care what you think of cats as long as you're respectful of me and mine. This guy is not. He has taken every opportunity to say something nasty about cats. More and more I've felt that these comments are directed at me. More and more I've been getting angry, but I've kept my mouth shut. I considered leaving the study, but decided to at least stick out the rest of the current book.

Last night, though, I lost it. He started in, looking directly at me while he said things I will not repeat here...so it was directed at me specifically...and I lost it. I blew up at him...he said something about it being a joke, to which I said it isn't because it's cruel, he does it all the time, and...here was my parting shot as I left...no one else in the room has the cojones (balls) to tell him to stop. Yes indeed I did. In front of the pastor, an elder, a deacon and three other people. I went to my car, and cried the entire way home. No one came after me. No one has called.

Needless to say, my husband, parents, and one close friend I've talked to, are absolutely furious that it was ever allowed to reach that point. Me? I'm sad. Sad that it got to that point without anyone putting a stop to it. Sad that I allowed myself to be provoked to the point of blowing up. Just...sad. And I don't know what's going to happen next. Rob has men's group Saturday and I figure that will be a good time for him to assess what the mood is. Rob grew up on the same street as this guy and knew he was a butt to begin with.

Anyhow, I shared all that mostly because you're all my friends and I just...I guess needed to unload? Yeah. That's it. *sigh*

So, I'll take all the funnies and fuzzies y'all can provide. :) :hug:

A person can only take so much you know.
And to hide behind "It was a joke." line is pure chicken poop.
I like to think the others in the group didn't know what to do
Well, save for the pastor who should have been the one to talk to the fool
After all he's supposed to be trained in such things.

My girls send their purrs and love to ya
And thank you for sticking up for all furbabies.

Ahem. It's a process. A long one.

Right now I'm here and she is in Manila, and I have an appointment with the interior ministry on October 15 after the Israeli holiday season. The original date was August 16, but the Israeli consulate in Manila takes a MONTH to verify wifey's documents. The Philippines are not a member of the Apostille Convention so the process of verifying her documents to be recognized in Israel is long and complicated. If it goes well, I am hoping to bring her here by December. Then it's 5-7 years of staged visa upgrades until she is a citizen.

[color=#0000BF]And did you say family??? Or am I jumping to conclusions? ;)


Yes. Absolutely. You are absolutely jumping to conclusions :)

P.S. And kudos for standing up to the bully. What he was doing, from the description, is textbook passive-aggressive bullying that has nothing to do with cats and everything to do with you. May cats poop into his shoes every night.

I'm on my phone, so this could be fun.

First, best wishes on getting that all taken care of! We'll even say a prayer that it works out quickly.

And we should all visit that beach...and Mrs. Storyteller: D

My husband liked the poop in his shoes" part. We had a good giggle. :D

Calma, my boys stand in solidarity with your girls. Pharaoh has been very concerned for me and following me around the house.

Thanks, all. Right now I'm just working through the hurt and deciding what's next.

Small update.

Rob and I had a talk this afternoon and we just didn't know what we were going to do tomorrow (Sunday). So we prayed about it, then I went out to my parents to chop peppers for salsa :D While I was standing there slicing into the bell peppers, it came to me to contact the pastor and ask to talk to him between first service and Sunday school. So Rob texted him and he agreed.

Rob's thoughts are that I just pretty much stunned everyone because they had never seen me lose my temper like that before, and the pastor is giving me space. I agreed that those thoughts were likely. They've all seen me angry...but I've never lost it like that. I said that I admit some of the things I said were not nice and I could have said things better...maybe just walked out. But while I was working with the peppers (and baking cake for strawberry shortcake!!) I remembered some things that had happened that I had forgotten about that lead up to this. Mostly, I just want to say that I could have been adultier than I was and apologize for totally losing it and saying some of those things. It is his class after all. I still believe this could have been prevented and that I was justified in being angry.

So prayers, well wished, etc. are much appreciated!

Meanwhile...I was on my phone last night because we had Rob to the ER again. It started at express care...we thought he had an infected rash...except he'd been acting strangely (for him ;) ). The doctor at express care decided we needed blood work, and the kind of blood work that can only be done quickly at the hospital. When we got there, we found that the doctor also ordered an ultrasound. As it turned out, he has an infection on his skin...celulosis is part of it (the skin gets tight and shiny) and it was quickly working it's way to sepsis. :shock: So the did an IV of antibiotics and sent him home with a prescription for more.

I tell you, it never stops around here!!

Rob is doing well...well, better. It hit slowly, but now it's s-l-o-w-l-y healing.

And we had the meeting with the Pastor and it went very well. In fact, he guessed there was more going on than what was on the surface. We talked about 20 minutes and he had some insight and listened to what we had to say. He asked if I wanted to talk to the person in question and I said I thought it would be a while before I felt ready for that, and he said that was okay.

I need to change my profile picture. Hm...need to come up with something good...

Iris, I told you story to my sissy in NY. I hope you don't mind. I didn't say your name just that you were a nice blog friend. She agrees that you did the right thing in telling him off. If someone doesn't like something they should keep their opinions to themselves or at least no harp on it. I commend you for keeping your cool for as long as you did and agree that peoples dislikes have no place in a study group. *hugs and good vibes to you and Rob*

I'm glad to hear he is getting better and they caught it quickly.

:hug: <3 :rose:
