My Carnival Cruise Experience

Tags

, , , , ,

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.

DIY Crafts

I think everyone should do some type of crafts because they are very therapeutic. I can sew small things like blankets for babies or sweaters for dogs. I have a friend that likes to make necklaces because he relaxes him. My sister told me of a woman who recycles clothes and shoes by swapping pieces from each other. There are people who make greeting cards by hand and others decorate. No matter what it is everyone can benefit from crafts.

Simplify Your Summer – DIY Aromatherapy Neck Pillow

I was searching the web for an easy herbal neck pillow for a manly man who has these tension headaches from his neck. I saw this article and thought he would love this. My friend is very practical, he uses socks for rags to clean anyway so what better for him is a sock for a neck pillow. I will make another for him but for the meantime. He could start with this. Janice, the author of this article is listed on 5minutesformoms.com.

Doggie Clothes

I made a dog sweater for my neighbor’s dog. I took an old shirt and refashioned it. I think I would sew more if I recycled clothes. I have been watching a few ladies on YouTube who reuse material Coolirpa, and Mimi G. Style.

I found someone that I know who does their own thing at home. Aramis Williams. She has her own shop on Etsy called XnithiPrints.

I started this blog post last year thinking of ways I could work from home that would be enjoyable to me. Since then we got a new president that is sending missiles to Syria.

This is a reminder that we don’t have long to focus on the things we love most and make money in a way that will be hard for the president to destroy.

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 into the store fully of fear, excitement, and nervousness. I walked in talking about the experience with the employees. I passed the aisle I was to turn down then turned around and started to pass it again. One of the employees tried to calm me by saying, “Take your turn, there is no hurry”. I did take a deep breath but was still shaken. I finally grabbed the bag of candy and headed to the register. I had brought the wrong amount, I was short five cents. The same employee paid for it.

Cheap Fare

, , ,

Farewell to my fare
Goodbye to cheap travel
Trips downtown wil be rare
And my world may unravel.

Farewell to leisure time
And enjoying the outdoor
At home out of my mind
Laying around on the floor

Staying in my place
Just being bored
While the world goes by
Not even going to the store.

The fare will change
I have to adjust
I may take a trip
But notin a rush.

I need to budget
To get a pass
Or say farewell bus
I’m home alas.

Homeless and Hungry

Appaling Ser!vice And A Disgrace

I usually attend “feeds” and other homeless events throughout the year. I mostly do it because I still feel attached to that community even though I am housed. Feeds are places that feed people for free hot or cold meals. These feeds are mostly for the homeless but people of limited means or previously housed still attend them. Most of the feeds are located in the downtown metro area in Denver where I live.

I subscribe to a place called Nextdoor because it is a classified ad site for your neighborhood. It has regular classifieds for things you want to sell, job offers, and local events. My favorite thing on the site is the free items tab. If you have anything you want to give away for free you list there. They also have a crime link for authorities or concerned citizens to list information. I think it is a great community place to participate in.

I was on this site when I saw a posting about a hungry homeless person. I have the link above but I will try to summarize what I read. There was a homeless person who went to a restaurant and asked to see the menu but he was refused. The told he to leave immediately but he was actually being accompanied by a paying customer who invited him there. I would understand if he had asked for free food and/or was panhandling at their place of business, but to treat them bad when they have done nothing wrong speaks about your character and values.

When you are homeless it is embarrassing enough that you are hungry but to be humiliated for it makes you feel worse. I understand that some people are in this situation at their cost but it does mean they deserve to be mistreated. I wanted to post the information of this restaurant to teach them a lesson but I will contact them privately to let them know that they are being reconsidered as a place to dine it because of their lack of compassion.

Holidays

I have seen all the thing that can be done during the holidays, but most people just want to use you for what they can get out of you. some people think if they offer party favors they should have the run of the mill. Some think if they are providing sexual favors that you should be content to bending over backward to put them at the top your priority list.

People will come to your home spill drinks on your carpet and will not even tell you since it isn’t their floor. They feel they are exempt to cleaning it. They will damage your property and have an explanation why it is okay. “You can just buy another one”, this is their response because they believe that since it was an inexpensive item you have money to waste. You took care of for a long time and now they just come mess things up for you to fix it.

These people come in your home boisterous about the delicious cooking and ruins your pots/pans with the saying, “I will buy you another one”. Of course, you never get it. Obviously, if they had a bunch of things of their own and valued other people’s property they would understand why their visits become fewer and fewer.

Some people think they can fix a problem that their friends caused with deciding what solution would make it okay. For example, let’s say Mary had a Schwinn beach cruiser bike, she lends it to John but Sally his girlfriend broke it. John decides he will give Mary a cheap Walmart Murray  bike and thinks that should solve the issue. John didn’t consult Mary or ask if that was the type of bike she had. John thinks he is doing the right thing because he replaced a bike with another bike. Unfortunately, some things can’t be replaced. I heard of a similar issue, but it was a piece from a collection and the whole collection needed to be replaced.

This 2016 is the year of not being stepped on because you have a kind heart. Time to move up a notch and don’t look back for people that like it down below. Create something in your life that you are proud of and make yourself feel good inside. Give without validation. Don’t always take from others but help others. I want to start helping only those who want my help and will do something about it. If you want to improve your life, I will help you get started but it is up to you to keep it going.

My New Year’s resolution is to work on me. I want to change things about myself that I was afraid to change because of my friends. I now know that they were not friends and don’t really care anyway. I will need to change my lifestyle and my household. My association will  change to like minded individuals. I will loose quite a few connections, but I need to step my life up and if you aren’t moving in my direction and happy where you  are, I will be leaving you behind.
