Here's my face, in its many forms 😆😇😈 In the words of @josiedunne Everybody's sayin all the ladies chase the bad boys; that's no fun, rather be the bad one 🤷 😆
The only part of Carl's room that isn't full of yard sale stuff 😂 woof 😅I'm taking a break from tagging and pricing and digging through the house for more items for the day, this weekend was draining. Today we have a gentleman coming to see about hooking up a water softener since we haven't had soft water in 5 years. I found out that renting one is a very affordable option for us, and since Waterpik stopped making the shower filter I used for 6 months, we might as well just have soft water for the whole house. Our skin, hair, and dishes will thank us 😀🚿
Jurassic Park & Jaws at the drive in tonight, more yard sale prep work tomorrow 🦖🦕🦈🦈
Got a lot of tagging done for the BLM Yard Sale last night. We've still got about a month before the sale, but there's a lot more work to be done! I still need to take some group photos of items to help advertise the sale on Facebook, price items, tag the textile items, etc. A lot of textiles need a fresh wash since they've been in storage or in the basement rec room, and I'm certain there are more items I still haven't even thought of to put into the sale...makes me wish I had just opened a booth at the antique mall years ago 😂 🏷 ICYMI: mid-July, a few friends and I are hosting a yard sale where proceeds will go to the BLM movement and the NAACP. Most items will be decor and home related from our own collections, but there will also be a good amount of plus size clothing and accessories. 🥰
Sometimes you just have to go get a churro from @thechurrosfoodtruck and take Instax photos of the crew. Despite what anyone says, Rockford does have SOME stuff to do in the summer months 😆 And... remember that it's OK & GOOD to take a mental breather every once in a while from all the horrible news and social media. You can't run on empty, so make sure you're still taking care of yourself while staying informed and passionate about your beliefs. For me, a poorly executed selfie and a bavarian vanilla churro does the trick 🤣 🧐 How are you taking good care of YOU these days? Tell me all about it in the comments, because too many churros will go straight to my already thick thighs 😂
Even though our feeds are slowly going back to normal, Black lives still matter. Change is still needed. People are still dying. Rockford isn't best known for being the safest city, the least violent, the most peaceful... because it's not. Yet somehow, our protests haven't gone off the rails, inciting violence every night. They've kept fellow protesters safe, resisted violence, and tried to keep the peace. The activist groups are in contact with city officials, and change is underway. And now we have this piece of art at the Aldeen Spillway, the graffiti gallery, facing Alpine (a major road for those out of town). The #BLM fist with the Rockford Symbol inside. #ROCKFORDCARES ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼
PSA for anyone who was interested in my post about the yard sale I plan on hosting next month to benefit the NAACP/Black Lives Matter movement: ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻 I have published the details in my stories, and they are now all saved under the BLM Yard Sale highlight on my page. 🏷 Any and all local help/item donations are welcome and appreciated! Suggestions? Hit me with them! 💕
The results are in: 18 more months of being seizure free and they can wean me off of the meds 🥳 In 6 months, they'll do another EEG & possible MRI to see if there have been any changes, and start planning for the best course of action. Neuro no longer feels the need to put me through a video EEG (basically a hospital prison sentence where you're taped 24/7 and attached to everything you sit on by an assistant...and they try to induce seizures to see what your triggers are so they can monitor your brain activity during one...a big no thanks from me 🙅🏼), so hopefully these next 18 months breeze by uneventfully.
