Share Your World – 2016 Week 52


What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?

I’m Lactose Intolerant so I cannot eat ice cream any more but when I was young and healthy I Loved Chocolate Ice Cream.

If you were to treat yourself to the “finer things” what would you treat yourself to? 

A Visit to Saratoga Springs to “Take the Waters.”  Soaking in these healing mineral waters is supposed to help arthritis. My joints pain me constantly so I would Love to spend time at Saratoga Springs for my Birthday in Feb. 2017.  Due to finances I have not had a real vacation in years. Of course this Saratoga Springs fantasy vacation won’t happen as I cannot afford to travel or spend my small salary on hotels but I can dream. Who knows maybe I’ll receive a Miracle Vacation Trip to Saratoga Springs for my Birthday!! LOL!!  🙂  😀

Have you ever been drunk?

Yes. Back in my Army days. However after a really bad experience with Southern Comfort which resulted in my room-mates stripping me naked, marching me down the barracks hallway and throwing me into a cold shower I’ve only gotten buzzed but never falling down drunk ever again. My saving grace of that incident is that there were no computers, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram or any other type of social media in the late 1970s!!

Complete this sentence: My favorite supposedly guilty pleasure is… 

Sleep. I’m always tired. Exhausted.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Grateful I was able to spend time with my brother Stephen. Also grateful that the holidays are over so I can be Free from Tension and Anxiety.  I’m not looking forward to anything for the upcoming week. Basically I’m doing the same thing I did in 2016 Going to Work and as I work on Holidays I will be at work tomorrow.  What’s the expression; “Different Day. Same shit.”  There is nothing special or significant about 2017. It’s just an extension of 2016.

There is a meeting with the manager and Director of Stephen’s Group Home coming up on Friday, Jan. 6th but I’m not looking forward to that as once again I’m trying to fix ongoing problems with this particular manager who is incompetent.  This will not be a happy nor successful meeting as the woman and I don’t get along and I’ve made numerous complaints against her. I don’t expect any solutions to come from us having a sit-down as I don’t intend to compromise when it comes to Stephen’s care.

    1. Not holding my breath. Wound up cursing her out last March. We don’t get along and that’s not going to change. I can be very nasty and that is about to come out even more because the woman is an idiot.

      1. Trust me if I could get away with beating her ass to a pulp I would but since I can’t afford to get arrested I can’t. One has to manage the people who run these group homes. Many of them should not be in charge of disabled people. I’m just so disgusted at this point that I’m thinking of trying to find a lawyer to plead my case. The director is protecting this fool woman. Nothing worked out in 2016 so this year will be an extension of the same. Now I have to keep some of Stephen’s clothes at my house otherwise he will not have any decent clothes to wear when he is with me. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on clothing only to have the residence send Stephen with worn, ripped, and tattered clothes. No personal hygiene items. Etc…. This is why I’m always stressed out, upset and ready to explode.

      2. Lawyers cost money but I will see what I can do. Trying to work full-time and watch these morons is overwhelming. No wonder I’m always in the doctor’s office. And I am not a young woman. The stress is unbearable. There are no groups to help siblings. My Life has become one constant fight with the group home manager and director. I think these people are trying to make me have another stroke! I have tried to get help but nobody wants to help me. So I don’t think 2017 will be any different than 2016. Looks like it will be worse.

    1. Thanks Cee! I can easily get the week of my Birthday off and could probably pay the bus/train fare to Saratoga but those hotel prices are just too much!! However I’m glad for your support and encouragement!! Happy New Years Day and may you and Chris have a wonderful excellent 2017!! ❤ 🙂 😀
