groups & stuff…

groups N stuff...
Before I begin, I gotta say this post was going to be something else but after a heated discussion, today among a certain group am taking a different approach ~ so strap on this might be bumpy if not controversial ride hehe…what surprises me most is a simple question can turn into attacking that person, intimidating and twisting the entire subject matter to the point the question gets lost ~ the controversy is what is the responsibility of store owners to their group members especially one that is very well known and has a huge membership ~ do you leave them hanging after say 3 months with no notice either before disappearing or after, or do you feel that a store owner it is actually none of anyone’s business why you are not in contact as RL is RL and its private ~ very heated discussion in regards to this as there were lines drawn, opinions thrown out to the fact you don’t like it just leave…since I am taking a moment to give my own thoughts as to this that most store owners do take responsibility to the group members by sending out notices before leaving on extended leave or having their assistant be informed as to what is taking place so he or she can answer group members satisfactory and not let the rumor mill start by thinking the worst that the owner just quit SL ~ again just my thoughts on this ~ wonder what any of you think on this subject ♥  Just a reminder if you have not been to Linden’s huge Shop & Hop it is ending tomorrow and the gifts are amazing ~ everything Dena is wearing is from there and it is all FREE ~ just check out the credits to see which store ~ thank you all for the nice comments and I did want to thank Moz especially for telling me about his Father’s New Year tradition ~ going out the back door and entering the front door ~ thank you Moz ♥ till next time remember to take time for a moment to yourself ♥ hugzz

Dena and I…

Besties
Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On old long syne.

As Dena and I toast each other to 2019 and sing along to those very words ~ I did a little googling to find out just what that means ~ actually not sure why we sing these words as we never should forget old friends ~ the above lyrics are the ones is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 “The phrase “auld lang syne” literally translates to “old long since,” and basically means, “days gone by.” The original, five-verse version of the poem essentially gets people singing, “lets drink to days gone by”…this was really made famous by Guy Lombardo who performed it on New Year’s Eve from 1939 to 1977 and is the version that is played when the ball drops in Times Square…as well as New Year’s traditions that differ all over the world ~ seems there is a tradition of “first foot” This is the belief that the first person to enter the home on New Year’s Day will be the bringer of good luck for the coming year. Or in the South, the meal for New Year’s day consists of greens, black eye peas, cornbread, and some type of pork ~ wondering what some of your traditions are for the New Year, did you make any resolutions that you would like to share?  Please I would love to know and will post any comments if you like to share with others ~ as Dena and I finish sipping on our champagne we are planning to do some blogs together as always each of us have a huge closet filled ~ stick around and again thank you for taking time to read & follow this blog ~ hugzz ♥♥

Happy New Year…

Happy 2019
Happy 2019 Everyone! Can you believe its 2019…last year brought a lot of changes, now I wonder what this year will bring ~ personally I stopped making New Year’s resolutions like losing weight, doing this and that since it leads to stress and setting up failure… instead I set up small goals that give me hope and something that I know can be achievable like making a 30 minute walk at least once a day take place. For Second Life am busy spending time on my inventory and working on a couple of Strawberry Singh’s suggestions *explore SL and comment on other bloggers posts…In cleaning or rather sorting my inventory you get the benefit of seeing some of the clothes that I have accumulated from advents, events like Shop & Hop and Marketplace finds as well as showing you places to go exploring ~ so buckle up my fabulous readers as I will bring you a little bit of this and this in 2019 ♥♥ Brutus and I wish each of you a very Happy New Year and thank all my readers, followers for taking time out to read my blog ♥

Thoughts
Sitting here on my steps thinking the year is almost over and how many changes took place ~ ending an SL relationship, changing the blog, reconnecting with someone very special and finding that some things never change like my inventory that is filled with unopened boxes from the Shop & Hop event that Linden has put on ~ if you have not made it yet I urge you don’t procrastinate and not go ~ there are 5 sims Aurelian, Gilded, Golden, Halycon, and Tinseled with gifts from over 100 Designer stores like Apple Fall, Blueberry, Fancy Decor, Salt & Pepper, What Next, and yes various stores just for the men as well with gifts in every store ~ as well they are cutting their prices drastically to entice you♥  Over the next couple days will be showing some of the gifts that I got from this event ~ so I better get my butt to open all those boxes that I have piled up in the living room LOL ~ ooops forgot about what am wearing to tell you it was a Marketplace find that includes the outfit, shoes, belly gems, ankle bracelet ~ till next time please take time for yourself to breathe ♥♥ hugzz

Back
Yes after a week of dog sitting I am finally back in SL ~ needed to come back because am exhausted hehehe ~ kind of got carried away by taking on too many dogs at one time as I did have to walk back and forth to 3 separate houses truly wore me out ~ good thing is a little bit richer that will go into my savings and I made my goal for steps each day…now just have to work on sorting out all my gifts from advents ~ there is still a huge one from Linden the Shop & Hop that is ongoing till January 4th ~ there are over 100 Merchants participating in this with each store giving a gift along with some super discounts for items ~ 5 different sims filled with designers that are cutting prices drastically…this is the time to gather your Lindens and go shopping ♥ Best way to shop is “show friends only” as that clears everyone except your friends and does help out on the lag ~ last night EST time the sims were amazingly lagless if that is a word LOL…thats it for me today as I am gonna spend the rest of the day wading through my inventory as it truly has exploded BUT before I leave I gotta say huge thank you’s to Brutus for giving me some awesome pressies ♥♥ cya soon

Pressies…

Pressies
Looks like I am all set for Christmas, my shopping is done and just need to get a couple of stocking stuffers for my girlfriend and her hubby that I live in RL with~  this will be my next to last blog post till after the holidays as an RL Dog client called at the last moment wanting me to dog sit starting in 2 days till the end of the month ~ Unexpected yet they are excellent clients spoiling me so can never say no to xtra $$$ hehehe ~ We all know RL always comes first ~ Were you aware that gift giving has gotten so out of hand, so commercialized that most spend up to and over $1,000 as average…people even borrow money just to spend on Christmas then complain when they see maxed out credit cards or loans that are due. As well as some of the gifts are not wanted and either returned, regifted or just thrown away ♥  I used to think the idea of giving a gift card was so un-personalized ~ not anymore as the variety of gift cards like Amazon where the recipient can just purchase almost anything or restaurant gift cards, Walmart gift cards are also big in the USA ~ you choose the amount you want to spend ~ and I like to put that card wrapped up in a tiny box, then put that box into another box hehehe ~ my girlfriend last year gifted me with an Amazon card that I used for ebooks and to rent a couple of video’s.  Gift cards might seem a tad cold but it is letting that person choose their own gift or enjoy a meal on you ♥ take a moment to breathe, relax and immerse yourself in the holiday festivities ~ till next time hugzzz♥♥

Friends
Holidays to me mean friends and family ~ mostly friends in my situation as the family not so much hmmm maybe need to rephrase that family not at all…too long a story and let’s just say my family and I parted after my Mom passed away, which does happen when your parents truly hold the family together…November marked the anniversary  where I am living a year and can truly say I love it here living with my best girlfriend  that have known since high school and her husband ~ truly great to have a friend like her in my life as both have truly been a real blessing ~ her nagging me to finally make Dr. appointments to see what’s going on with me ~ not that I am looking forward to having such evasive surgery on my nose *2 hour procedure that when the Dr. explained it to me I seriously cringed ~ especially telling me a little slip of this instrument close to my eye and brain I am like OMG do not tell me that shit just have steady hands, no drinking the night before you and will start saying prayers that it goes fine…who tells their patients that gawd along with saying when asked about pain afterward “oh yes there will be horrible pain but we got good drugs for you” just another FYI that you could have kept to yourself…my girlfriend and her hubby said not to worry as I would be fine ~ for my SL friends I have also been blessed especially with my bestie Dena who lets me rant about RL stuff and cheers me up when am down ~ think without her at times my SL would look on the grey side and not full of color ~ this year am so grateful to another fantastic Christmas with my friends *RL & SL* ~ Dena and I truly want to tell each of you

MERRY CHRISTMAS ♥
