Creative Recycling

Recycling Everyday Items I started getting emails that showed me how to recycle toilet paper rolls, then something in my head said recycle everything you can that you throw away. I first thought of how I have old clothes that has holes or doesn't fit. I figured I can search the web to find a way to recycle them. Everyone always has cardboard around the house, we could use it for art or find another creative way to keep it. I have also seen old coffee canisters reused as storage. So my way of giving back to the planet is to recycle/ reuse mostly because of the lack of funds and the environment.
Things In The Recycle Bin We are told by local government and the news to recycle plastics, aluminum, cardboard, and paper to say the least. I think there are several ways to do this. We can reuse a lot of cardboard as art and storage. Old boxes card be decorated to be storage bins. My favorite is a post I saw from All Things Paper blog.
I have also seen some cool plastic bottle reuses. Som…

Time For A Change

Starting A Business
I decided that it is time to start my business from home. I have been talking about this for years but when I heard some news about #Trump getting rid of subsidize housing, I realize my situation may change at any moment. I have a dual diagnosis and it makes it hard to complete goals, work, and sometimes function. I can't wait for these things to improve I have to start now!
I have started with making neck soothers (neck wraps). They are made with rice and scented oils. You can use them hot or cold. I want to also add some bags to the site. Everyone is starting to bring their own bags to the store or wherever and this will keep a money flow. One of the other projects I want to add is things homeless people can use while on the streets. This way I can take a portion of profits for the homeless and a little to make the products. For example, I saw this traveling roll that is made just for carrying hygiene that the homeless could benefit from.
So I am using my do…

Waking up Late

Things You May Miss
I woke up today about ten o'clock a.m. I had a few things on my schedule for the day. I wanted some freelance time. I also wanted to exercise. I wanted my day to end at five o'clock p.m. I missed a lot by getting started late.
Once, I woke up today, I had to clean up my surroundings, clean myself up, and get breakfast before 10:30 a.m. Of course, that didn't work. I was going to a food bank in the building that starts at 11 am but I need to be there about a half hour early to get extra food. You know, 'first come, first serve,' moto. I was able to clean up my living room and throw the blanket on my bed. I brushed my teeth and threw some water on my face. I made a cup of coffee while I was doing the other things and was out the door running. I made it in line a few minutes late but I was doing ok.
I got the food and it was almost time for my other scheduled thing which was to return a dolly to my case manager at 1 pm. I wanted to eat lunch since…


Have You Been Screwed
A friend of mine set up a cruise for her husband's birthday. She invited lots of people talked to a Carnival representative to set up the whole trip. Most people use travel agents or separate companies to schedule a cruise and airfare. My friend had little experience with using other sources so it makes sense to utilize a well-known company for their expertise to schedule with them. The trip was to go from Long Beach to Catalina Island and stop at Ensenada, Mexico then return.
The representative from Carnival name "J" handled everything and assured her that he was capable of making everything happen for her. He said he could answer all her questions and all she needed to do is to pay at the deadline and all things would be assume. She advised him that she had two children that she was bringing on the trip and he assured her that as long as the children didn't get off the boat there were no documents needed for them.
I made my arrangements with …

Near Death Experience.

Some days just staying alive is a miracle. Almost getting hit by a car is very close to death experience. Seeing someone a few days prior to their death can feel like being in the proximity the occurrence. Hearing that someone knew someone that took their own life can be near death. Having someone die in you home can be too close to death. I think this is an experience that can be interpreted in lots of different ways but the key is that you are still alive.

Last night I went out to buy some snacks from the drugstore across the street. I crossed half the street to the median. I looked and it seemed the cars were far enough away to continue across. As I stepped out I could hear the roaring of the engine getting closer to me so I picked up my pace. As I stepped onto the curb the truck sped passed me and turned into the parking lot of the drugstore. The truck slowed down enough not to leave tire marks or smoke. Right behind the truck was a police car. The police left tire marks. I went …
