She sounds like she has issues. If you get a car she'll probably want to use it, too.

Yea but this way I can tell her no without hubby feeling guilty. My name my rules! LOL. He ended up telling her no anyways. He is getting tired of her always wanting to borrow vehicles off of us anyways. She works at food pantries so she hauls heavy stuff and he is sick of wear and tear on our cars. Especially since his sister is off work for her pregnancy and sleeping all day. She borrowed my stuff twice so it's time for preggo to take care of her moms issues.

Yep, lol she's been driving her mom around all day. Love it!
Went to an antique shop and got some good deals. I got a stenographers notebook from the 1910s and a hand wrote recipe book from 1944. Best thing I got was two my buddy dolls! One was a 1985 I got for ten bucks and the other was a 1993 I got for five. They are online for much more the older one is considered rare. Sweet!

Not having a bad day but not a good day either. Had a nice looking sebring I wanted to buy and the guy that owns it can't find the title so thats put on hold. I have a few other options for hubby to look at. I lost two more petsmart bettas. What's new about that huh? and I left my charger for my tablet at my mothers. My tablet is one of the only things that controls my anxiety anymore so I am of course nervous because of it. Anxiety so sucks. Especially when people don't have it say something like, "just calm down" like it's that easy. It's not people.

Thankfully my twenty gallon tall is fully cycled and cleared up.

My mom is one of those "just calm down' people. No, you can't just calm down. I know when I was having bad anxiety the more I TRIED to calm down and stop thinking about things the worse it got. Maybe try some deep breathing and watch your fish for awhile.
I'm wondering about the Petsmart bettas, too. I lost Gwenny, Molly and Panda all within a month. I guess they're getting bad batches of fish right now.

They must be I had those two for a short time. People who havent experienced anxiety have no idea what it is like. It feels like a heart attack. Your chest starts hurting, your hands and feet tingle, you can't breath. It can be pretty scary. As I have gotten older I have gotten better at controling it. Maybe I'm just getting used to it. My mom is going to try to get my dad to bring me the cord.

My anxiety caused me to shake. My hands would shake so bad. I never felt like I was having a heart attack but I felt like I was going crazy.

I hate that others experience it but it's still nice that someone somewhere understands.

My mother-in-law called but I didn't pick up. I am not in the mood to hear her latest drama issues. I'm getting ready to clean some tanks while staring at my new marble sword tail molly's.
