Well Now …

… Ooooh, Lord!  The Queen Komaya-Maya Biotch wants to come out and argue with this woman (more likely a kid since I have children who are damn near 30) on Facebook.  I cannot stand rude people.

If you see that there is someone who is HURTING I mean really hurting then the best thing you should do is STFU and sit your ass down. Or like Kendrick Lamar says:

Bitch, sit down! Bitch, BE HUMBLE!

The hurting person was (well, still is) a stay at home wife that has a deployed husband that lost his ENTIRE DAMN mind and had decided it was a good idea to tell her he wants a divorce via messaging. Talk about a cowardly thing to do, what a Hero. Anyway, she is devastated and afraid. She literally feels like she has nothing and no one. She is venting right now. Most grown-ups would understand what is happening. You say you are sorry, you offer to listen, you have empathy, you have sympathy.

YOU DO NOT go and issue a retort line by line telling her about all the things that you have done for her even to the point of informing her how much the boxes cost that you gave to her; so she can pack out her house aloneOh and that you were planning on keeping them for yourself but you felt sorry for her. You do not tag two other “friends” and bring them in on this attack so they can chime in on how upset they also are and how she no longer has any of you as friends because Y’all feel insulted about what she wrote. This part of the military lifestyle I do not miss! It’s almost like a gang mentality.

YOU have your complete family. YOU have your husband. YOU are not alone.

What the hell??? Really?? Every heard: “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all?”

This “Mean Girls” attitude is disgusting to me. Now no one can reach this hurt individual, all calls going straight to voicemail and no texts are being answered, she has gone dark.

I hope they all feel great and don’t break their arms patting themselves on their collective Bitch Backs.

Y’all sure told her!

Did empathy and sympathy just stop being a thing all of a sudden or am I truly old now and this is the correct way to act?

For the first time, I am genuinely clutching my pearls.

Damn!

Yarns and Stuff!

FB_IMG_1493833743233

When I started blogging again, I mentioned that I was working 7 days a week and almost 70 hours a week trying to make extra money.  I did this for two years! I discovered something …

This Sabertooth Cougar can’t keep up anymore! The Old Gray Mare ain’t what she used to be for real! I was starting look all of 50, and I haven’t hit 50 yet. 🙁  I was exhausted all the time, and I didn’t have any extra time for myself and my family.  I fulfilled my dream of becoming a homeowner, but I was never home.

Did I mention I was exhausted? All the time?? Ten years ago burning the candle at both ends wasn’t an issue, I could function on very little sleep. Nowadays burning the candle at both ends just burned me out. Rapidly.

The past two years I have been trying different ways to make extra money so I can have something to leave my kids and build a respectable nest egg for my retirement.  I didn’t look ahead years ago to save anything because I thought I would be married until “Death do us part.” Well, no one is dead, but we did part, and I was left with trying to make it on my own. Scary when you come from living in a two income situation to just one. I made the decision to save myself from a relationship that I knew wasn’t healthy, so my mind/sanity was more important than savings.

I signed up to deliver food which isn’t the safest thing to do in New Orleans, and it is hard on your car. I transcribe and do other odd jobs online to make a little extra change.  When I scored a work at home job with Amazon, I thought I had it made until I realized I still wasn’t available and was exhausted because my old ass needs to sleep. So I made the decision to stop burning the candle at both ends and try to find some way to make a passive income.  I needed a way to make a little extra money that wouldn’t put me in an early grave from either getting attacked at night delivering for UberEats or Waitr in New Orleans (lots of sketchy, dark neighborhoods) or being sleep deprived from working 30 extra hours a week with Amazon.

I started crocheting and doing different crafts, and I found it relaxing and fun. I had a hard time finding the yarn that I needed in stock for the projects that I wanted to do.  I came across this website that sells a variety of yarns, threads, and accessories and I fell in love. I had the opportunity to open my own online store to sell the yarn myself.  So now I have Yarns and Stuff. I think I may have found a way to make a little extra money without losing sleep or passing out from exhaustion.  I also added links to different Amazon deals that I personally use and like, I cannot do the hours of an Amazon Customer Service Representative, but I do know what sales are good ones on the site, so I added those links on the side.

Who doesn’t shop at Amazon?? So I added links to the deals that they currently have available and will change them as the deals change. I know I won’t become rich from my links and my yarn shop but if you are planning on buying yarn or going to Amazon help this Old Sabertooth Cougar out and check out my yarn store or click on the Amazon links on the sidebar. 🙂

So yes, I monetized my blog, but I will still just write about random stuff, weight loss, and the Meno-Monster that I am battling with (have been fighting with her for 6 years and counting) daily.

I promise, not gonna be obnoxious about selling anything.  I am happy if you just stop by and read my thoughts and maybe learn something or laugh. If you end up buying something that is good too!

I love you all (so far all 15 people 🙂 ) and please don’t run because you see ads. Just a way to make sure my kids don’t dig a hole and throw me in it when I die or just let the cats eat me.
