Happy Birthday to my Dad in Heaven

I added a bunch of music to my cellphone recently and was playing through it while driving. And my Dad’s custom ringtone popped up as a song and it nearly killed me. I pulled over and bawled like a baby. I’m making it through this month without any therapy. Normal grief is a bit hard to juggle on top of the mental health issues.

Facebook and the rest of my social media like to remind me of things. Like today, his birthday. Or Christmas. Or Father’s Day. I honestly can’t say it gets easier, just less difficult to miss someone after they pass away. I’m reaching that age where a lot of people are gone and it doesn’t feel great. It makes sense to mourn when someone dies young. But even when someone dies older. Yes, they had a long life. It still feels horrible when it’s cut short.

My SO was feeling under the weather and I was feeling low so I popped into my favorite takeaway place and got us both some soup. It is so soothing and really helped my mood, plus cleared out the ache in my throat. My SO took off early from work today since he was feeling so bad. I didn’t get to lounge around sadly. I had to hound my Psych Doctor’s office to get a refill. It’s insane. I have been on this med for nearly a decade and I still have to call the nurse to get my refills put in regularly. And then she has to talk to the Doctor. Then she calls it in to the pharmacy. Like, yikes. Just refill it, guys. I shouldn’t have to go on a quest for the Holy Grail. COVID has made getting in touch with the office such a pain. I was on hold waiting for someone to answer for 20 minutes.

I’ve been juggling moving my phone number over to a new service. We switched to Visible! It’s powered by Verizon and has unlimited data. We’re going to be on a family plan that makes it cheaper, but starting out, if you use a friend code – the first month is only $5. After 4 years, I’m finally upgrading my phone! I am SO, SO rough on my technology.

Check out this page: https://www.visible.com/get/3CVCPDF, it has all the info you need to know about joining Visible. When you use my friend code, 3CVCPDF, you’ll get your first month of service for only $5!

My Samsung Tablet and my Samsung J phone both have heavy-duty rugged cases because I drop/throw/abuse my electronics unintentionally. The phone arrived on Monday, but the case didn’t come until today.

I even got to put everything together myself! Wore gloves to keep fingerprints off the phone while I shoved my memory card and sim card into the phone. It’s been ages so these new phones are so confusing for me. I got a Samsung A12, not the most high-end one, but definitely a jump up for me! I always thought I’d be the hip cool old lady… now I’m the technologically challenged one.

Contacts ported over, important apps reinstalled. Victory! Urgh, but new charger. Boo. This beauty is a tank though. It’s ready for my hijinks~! We’ll see if the quality of my post photos gets any better now. Anywho, thanks for stopping in today. I’ve got to work on my Inktober prompt, I never got the e-mail last week and ended up having to chase it down on a forum. I’ll be working on last week’s and this week’s tomorrow.
