I ate too much. I was trying to get through all of the food that defrosted or was about to go off from the power being out. Doing an online shop on a full stomach = 8 packets of paper towels and toilet paper to make it up to the minimum spend. Being so full you are about to explode is a great way to avoid the specials page!

My day was alright. I visited my boyfriend's parents, got myself an ice cream, seen a friend, watched Two and a Half Men, and am posting here, another message board, on tumblr, and listening to Five Finger Death Punch and SlipKnot. I'm planning on cooking myself something and listen to Korn.

I think the only time I listen to Korn is when I watch the film Queen of the Damned, I watch that vampire film a lot.

Wiped myself out going to the city. Its Australia Day long weekend and seems a few were practicing their rowdiness today. A teenage boy came marching out of the reject shop swearing his head off at his mother, some other older teens smoking at the door gave him an earful for treating his mother like that, and she said meekly "its ok, he has autism". What a mouth on that kid! Autism or not he'd get a smack if he spoke to me like that. Poor woman. So glad I don't have kids, she'll be stuck with that one forever. Good way to start the day...

I brought some new hoses because I don't have enough to cover all of my garden and was getting jack of dragging the massive one around. Got some more chicken wire to finish my pony paddock. I also found a garden cart thing for 1/4 of the price they usually go for, so I grabbed it cos mine is smashed through the bottom, but it didn't have wheels ready attached and I had to carry it all the way to the other end of the carpark. Who can guess what that did to my back?

Maccas for lunch and went down to the bay to eat it, it was very peaceful and beautiful. Got a couple invites to drink this weekend but I was so drained by that stage I just wanted to get home and snuggle my bunnies and stretch out my back. So I declined and trekked up to coles to pick up my bulk buys on the way out of town. I figure I can go to the pub tonight if I really want in person socialisation, but I am always cornered by the tranny cos I am the only one who calls them by their preferred name. Everyone else pulls the piss. I am too tired to go out anyway. Oz day used to be a big party day for me, must be old now.

On the way home I was almost rear ended by a tradie in a truck trying to speed through a roundabout. He glared at me but he was totally in the wrong. Might have been good if he did hit me, with 30 or so roadwork witnesses, he would defo have had to cover my chiro bill. And that side of the car was already dented from my ex crashing it, twice, so it could have been fixed on his coin. Oh well :p

That is one missed opportunity then. If you had said you have autism you could have given the kids a good slap, and got away with it.

Device that can be fitted to an old persons car, flick the switch and the brakes work without using a brake light. Result is to get the chiro done and have the car fixed.

I washed the car and it looks AMAZING. It was a lot of work, but the results were worth it. Shiny. Sparkly. Yay!

Unexpectedly, the pharmacy filled my tramadol early...it was a nice surprise because I've been super stressed since last week. Like, I had NO pills to take the edge off my manic personality. It was almost unbearable, but I held on, thinking I just had to make it to Monday; that's when I could pick up the refill. But like I said, for some reason they filled it early without me asking. Really great timing! It has become SO difficult to get opiate/opioid medication. Allegedly, the government is trying to stem the opiate overdoses here; but it's pretty damn annoying. They're just going to drive a lot of people (not me, no way!) to the street for even stronger drugs. Look, if people want to get loaded, they'll find a way. The government needs to back off...its so stupid! They're NOT helping anyone with this crap. The way I see it, if some lightweight overdoses, that's on them. Nobody cared when poor kids were overdosing, but when a few rich kids took too many oxys and died...? Suddenly it's "an epidemic." God! This country drives me crazy sometimes.

The Department of Water and Power gave the neighbourhood notice that there would be a planned power outage, beginning at 4am tomorrow, and lasting until 11am or so. Since I'm usually up around 3am, I made SURE to get a bunch of batteries for the two lanterns and boom box. Also making sure the phones are fully charged! I'll be in the dark for roughly 3 hours, and I get paranoid during power outages. So at least I'll have the phones and boom box to occupy myself.

Go for a drive - they can't turn off your car lights and you can get to somewhere where it is lit up.

I've had an odd day... Started with coffee (obviously), had a lovely lunch with a friend and more coffee. Done some research for a friend on a new mobile that she wants. Worked on a leaflet for another friend for their business. Had dinner and more coffee, then watched the new Charmed.

OOOPS! I was supposed to go to a breakfast BBQ this morning, and I completely forgot. Instead I gave a chicken a massage and an espon salt bath and tried to water the garden. I feel bad cos I did actually want to go.

I figured out why watering the garden takes it out of me so much, besides the obvious distress of pouring that much chemically treated water into the dirt, I look down the whole time. I don't hold my own head up, and it puts my neck out cos I had to bend so often to move the old monster hose. I actually injure myself every single time I water, and being so hot, I have to water at least 3 times a week. This isn't good. I cant imagine the damage to my neck now after 2 years of that. I hope I don't survive when it does inevitably collapse. The new hoses made it much easier but have a lower rate of flow. I am starting to hate the garden, it is too small for a horse and too big to just enjoy. If that stupid gardener hadn't cut back the one tree providing shade for the whole middle of the yard, I would have a shade tree 3 times the size and not have to water as much. I am really frustrated.

Everything is trashed after the wild weather we had. I lost everything I had been working on the last few months, not for the first time. Its useless asking for help from my family for anything like this cos when I say "I need this" they say "No you need that" and give me things that are of absolutely no use or assistance to me, and then scream at me for not being grateful. Like when I asked for help with doing retic for the trees, we got the orchid done which was actually the only part I didn't need help with, the hose reached them fine and they were designed as flood beds, not for sprinklers. Its such a waste of everyones time when no one actually hears what I am trying to communicate. I don't have the cash to do proper retic for the whole lot, but I am capable of doing the work if I had supplies. The gardening was supposed to be included with the rent, but once I fired the gardener for cutting down the tree, that right was lost and the rent stayed the same. It is so, so expensive to upkeep this place and not nearly as rewarding as horses.

I wish I had moved to the granny flat with the crazy lady down the road. My horse would have been allowed to come with me, and the rent was cheaper. That was my plan until I got trapped here. A smaller house suits me much better, this house is way too big to keep clean and the garden is just a money suck, when I don't have money to be sucked! I understand why most in town now wouldn't be too fussed if a fire wiped the lot out. We'd all get a better quality of life on the insurance money. I do love the cottage, a lot, but it is too big for one person and the garden is a dying wasteland in my care. I miss my horses so much and have no idea how to keep fit and healthy without them holding my routine. I tried really hard to compensate with the buns, but they don't need near on as much care, and adding to the pet brood doesn't fill the hole horses left.

Truthfully, if I was a billionaire, I would stay in the area (its perfect for horses), heck, I'd stay on this property with a few improvements. I have room for a lap pool... but its just such a struggle right now with such limitations, not just financially but socially as well. There is a big camp draft down the road, and I don't want to go in case seeing horses makes me cry, and crying in public is what got me into this isolated mess in the first place.

And the people at the breakfast BBQ were going to send you a letter to ask why you didn't go. But no one could remember your name, tee hee.

Can you afford help? How big is your garden? How about you take 10 minute breaks when you feel some pain. Wear a tank top and shorts. Wear sunscreen. Drink water often. Take a bath afterwards or unless if you have a jacuzzi, then use it. Take some painkillers while you are at it.

Everything is trashed after the wild weather we had. I lost everything I had been working on the last few months, not for the first time.

By wild weather, do you mean gusty winds or hurricanes? It sounds as if your family don't want to understand you and are frustrated when you tell them the truth.

It seems as if your situation is extremely unfair. :(

I guess you can't afford help. :(

How are you "trapped" there? What happened in your life that made you "trapped" there? Could you get roommates?

We all wish to be billionaires. I'm dead broke right now and I wish that I can get some money. I have signed up for social security and wish/hope that I can get it.

I appreciate your kind advice @FaithLehane16 it probably wont do much good getting into it. Needed a rant.

Being put on social security/disability was a crap day for me. I thought there was no way I was disabled enough to be deemed too useless to even get a job, but apparently I lack insight in that area. It is very difficult to get disability payments here and every review my capacity is seen as diminished. To me it felt like a complete failure, and I should have been given a euthinasia option rather than be a miserable drain on the tax payer. The distain from society when you're limited by centrelink is tough to deal with, more so rurally. And when I have worked, its all too easy for employees to take advantage, especially when they know you live below the poverty line. I have done a lot of live in jobs, and work in exchange for horse privledges. I was brain injured by a mixture of prescribed medications after being injured at an unpaid position on a horse property caring for 44 horses. That job was my ultimate dream, all I had ever wanted from life and I lost it.

I dont have a bad life now, its just not particularly stimulating for me without horses and I frequently fall into the "why am I even here" hole. Many bitten by the horse bug feel the same without ponies in their lives. I can't go around buying luxury items and participating in competitions on the tax payers dime. I can't do work in exchange for rides anymore because the work is beyond my bodies capabilities now. I could care for a horse of my own in an agistment situation, but that doesnt come cheap and it would be wrong to use disability payments for a lifestyle/pony.

I have had horses in my life since I was 12 years old, the last 3 years has been a special hell without them. At least I have BB, as a constant, but it feels time for me to move on since I rarely watch the shows and have little interest in the comics.

No problem. I was just trying to help as much as I can. I know we all need advice every now and then.

So are you on social security or not? I'm confused by this paragraph here. It sounds like you are, but I am not sure.

The comic writers talk in lingo I dont understand. I dont really know what a vlog is, nor have much interest in learning what the cool new trends of teenhood are. I'd rather not waste money to read a format I don't understand and have it taint my memories of a very special show/time period of my life.

The reason why I don't read is because of inconsistent writing.

Apparently fixing my toilet.
What did you eat to cause that issue?!?

My buns are being lovely pets tonight, I think they know I am sad. I was stretching on the floor earlier and I had one licking my nose and one licking my toes. Anya is flying around doing binkies, while Xander is by my side for snuggles. Since I started typing he has started pushing cushions off the couch.
