Congratulations @Siofra! You go, girl!

Hope everyone is having a lovely Monday! I’m up early because it was too warm in my apartment. Not used to that. I had to get up early to go to the doctor anyhow. I’ve got an appointment with my leg doctor today and my long-awaited heart doctor appointment on Thursday.

I’m going to try to get out and get my hair cut this Wednesday. I hate going in but I hate having long hair even more so I’ve got to do it. Not like I can send Sally, my Helper, in with this one. LOL.

Other than that, I’ve not got much else going on this week. Just getting ready for another apartment inspection next week, which will be fun doing that around sanding down the sheetrock they’ve been putting up. They say they aren’t going to be looking at the plumbing mess, just around it so that’s okay. I did well on the last inspection and I didn’t have a Helper then so I’m not too worried, it’s just my normal paranoia picking up.

Hope everyone has a good week! Just 19 days until the Equinox! Whoo!

Thank you! I guess getting back to my practice meant hanging out here for a while to do so. I don’t mind, I find myself here more than on other social media as of late though.

I am going to have to do deal with the insurance lady at the PT/OT place that I go to. I am supposed to start that this month after needing to cancel last month due to insurance issues. So this is when they are supposed to be all straightened out & I should be all set to start for the month.

I’m up early, because that’s what my body does to me. Surprises me every morning with what time I am going to be up for the day. I regular sleep cycle would be nice.

I spent a good portion of yesterday being witchy in my space. I didn’t get to everything I wanted but I did get most of my crystals under the full moon last night with the help of my daughter. We put them in a shopping bag & she carried it out for me and helped me spread them on the table. It felt good to get them out there. I should have made some moon water. I am running low, but now that I am reconnecting it’s also time to catch up with what I let slide.

My right hand is a menace lately. I can’t move it in any position. Any slight movement & it hurts. So typing is harder than it used to be, even those movements hurt. So I’m looking forward to the PT & OT to start. I just hope that my insurance issues are straightened out. I wound up with Medicare & Medicaid so I don’t need the supplemental insurance that I have been trying to cancel since January. I finally had to call Medicare and have them remove me from the plan after sending in paperwork to cancel the insurance, making phone calls, fax, mail, you name it. Supposedly they filed grievances because it wasn’t done. I don’t know what is going on with it now. But I will find out later this morning.

I hope everyone has a great week. I will be in & out of the forum & around if anyone needs me.

Thank you everyone for you support over the weekend.

Sounds like your hand is hurting from dealing with all the red tape! I hope it all works out for you hon, I know you need your PT/OT. I’m glad your daughter helped you get your crystals out, I know you were worried about them. Plus it’s good that you and Peanut get to do something together. She’ll remember these days fondly once she’s grown up. You’re being a great Mom.

Glad to have helped you this weekend, love! And I’m glad you’re feeling more connected.

My daughter needs to stop growing! She’s wearing one of my tank tops under a sweater! This is her birthday month, my little Pisces & she fits it perfectly. Today after she is done with her schoolwork we are going to take care of horses that she absolutely loves. The owner is away on a business trip and her husband works full time so we are helping out. I can’t wait to meet them. I have always loved horses and wanted to ride. I’m just happy I get to meet them today.

I’m hoping to get the insurance thing taken care of today. I don’t want to have to cancel again because this pain in my hand is awful. I can’t even hold a plate with that hand.

I’m so happy to be connected, I just put the crystals back on my altar from last night. I’m going to use the black tourmaline and carry the pouch of Amethyst, Tiger Eye, and Black Tourmaline today. Peanut likes to help me with these things. I remember when she wanted her own crystals but she wanted them to make people around her happy. She’s a love.

Merry Meet Monday!
My weekend was good, both productive and witchy.
The best mix!:grin:
This week I’m looking forward to a missing package to appear, it’s been lost in transit since the 19th of Feb.
I also plan on organizing my BOS, BOM, and the stack of Misc notebooks on my desk.
Ordered a home gym and it arrived last Fri so this week I’m beginning workouts with my daughter’s. :weight_lifting_man:
It’s the Hyfit system if anyone wants to see it.
@Amethyst good vibes sent for your Dr appt.
@Siofra Peanut is such a sweet girl, kudos to Momma! Glad your PT/OT is on track now.
Sending you white light energy for your troubling hand today and I’m so glad you’re getting reconnected here, I know the happiness that brings.
Hope everyone has a great week!
Blessed Be :two_hearts:

Thank you! & I just got confirmation that my insurance is all set & I can go through with PT & OT this month. Oh, that’s such a relief!

I’m happy to be reconnected. I’m getting ready to activate my black tourmaline while I have the house to myself. I appreciate everyone for their support & for making me feel like I matter.

Tell Peanut to have a happy early birthday from me!

Thank you, love! One of the ulcers on my leg has almost disappeared and scabbed over! HUZZAH! LOL.

It sounds like a busy week (and next week too!), @Amethyst! Wishing you the best of luck with the appointments and inspection. It’s a lot happening at once, but sometimes a whirlwind of activity passes by quicker than expected. May you have a nice and relaxing time at the end of it all! :blush::+1:

And yes, gosh- Ostara will be here before we know it! :tulip::rabbit:


Congrats again to you, @Siofra- on the shout-out and also on the good news from the insurance! Wishing your daughter a happy bday- it sounds like good things are coming your way :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


May your missing package find its way to you, @Rowan- have you seen @berta’s gorgeous Shipping Package Prayer? It helped me with a few packages a while back! :package: :grin:

Sounds like you have a lot of excitement going on- may you have a very blessed week, Tamera!


Thank you for mentioning the raffle, @praecog29! I think you are absolutely right- it’s a great addition to the News post and I’m sorry I missed it! I’ve gone ahead and added it in now :blush: :+1:


I hope everyone’s week has been going well so far! Blessed be :sparkling_heart:

Me too! Especially since without the special Unna boot base, my other wrappings are slipping down.

I’m hoping it goes by quickly! I’m really fortunate to have a helper now so that there’s less stress on me.

5 Likes

Oh that’s right you have a helper. So that must make it a bit easier. Which reminds me that I finally have medicaid and am eligible for a helper too! I will bring it up on Thursday at my appointment.

I hope you continue to heal well this week!

5 Likes

Good luck with your meeting on Thursday! It may take you a while to get your helper but it’s worth it! My life is so much easier without dragging out trash or dragging in groceries. I hope you get one!

Thanks for the healing vibes too, love! I appreciate them!

After saying your Prayer for Shipped Packages
