I think there might be something wrong with me. I've always had migraines, but recently I've started having these weird visual auras. My left eye kind of vibrates, and then I just drop. Can't function, can't move, can barely breathe from the pain. I've noticed a weird swelling under my occipital nerve area at the back of my neck as well on the left side. Several people have brought up recently that I'm slurring my words, too. I dont have insurance, can't afford it, but I'm terrified I have a brain tumor or something.

I think the older generation was much more materialistic then people are now. My mom and her aunts liked to buy those collectible figurines and knick-knacks. And china--my mom insisted on getting the best china she could afford. It's all getting donated to Goodwill when she dies.

In response to a confession. Ugh, OP, that sucks.. It sounds like all of the crap I see at flea markets that noone is buying. It almost seems like borderline hoarding. Such a waste of money and space.

In response to a confession. My family is all about the 'it is worth a lot!' mindset. Most of them see shopping as a hobby. So they have to believe that shopping is really a form of investment, otherwise they just have a bad habit. Antique doll houses, Star Trek memorabilia, Hallmark ornaments, Barbies, Match Box cars, comic books - the amount of money spent on this stuff (and the money spent on storing it all!) is astounding. Since I am the youngest, I am the person they come to when they need to sell stuff when they realize they are broke. It breaks my heart to see how little money they get, compared to what they spent.

That's a sad story about the Hallmark ornaments. I know a lot of people think their collectibles are worth something but most of them aren't. Things are "worth" what the market will bear. It doesn't matter what you think they're worth, if no one wants your stuff it's not worth diddly. My uncle was so attached to his huge record album collection and he really was convinced somewhere someone would pay him thousands of dollars for it. Well, while I'm sure there are some people willing to pay some money for dusty albums most old vinyl now languishes in used record stores (the few that are left) and go for a few dollars apiece, in most cases. Same for old VHS tapes and Barbies. There are a few rare instances where you can get some money but again, most of it will end up in landfills. I never understood why you don't just save MONEY if you want to leave your kids money.

There is so much crap in the garage that you literally can't walk around in there at all without tripping on something or stabbing yourself on some tool or other. I just about killed myself tripping over the snowblower to get to the wheelbarrow, which was balanced precariously against the trailer on the truck and I just about stubbed my toe something awful. DH is supposed to be cleaning it out, but it's slow going. It drives him nuts more than me though since he's out there more.

They were predicting another 5" of snow here and we just got this huge blizzard of over a foot of snow. I was seriously pissed about it but now it looks like it's staying south of us. Happy DANCE!!! And it's supposed to be in the 60s by this weekend, so the snow should be gone pretty quick.

In response to a confession. Sometimes. I think I was on a med once that really messed with my stomach and I'd get a random wave of bad nausea. I got used to the med and the side effect went away.

Ever get like, a random wave of nausea? And you think, "Do I need to eat? Did I eat too much? What did I eat today? What the hell did I do today, anyway? Oh shit, am I pregnant? Lemmee think. No. Not pregnant. Am I getting sick? I don't have time to get sick. Oh, no, I'm getting dizzy. Oh, no, I'm totally gonna barf. I might be dying. Wait. Whew, okay, it's going away. Okay. I'm not gonna die." Yeah, like that. Ever get that? Or, is mine the only brain that does this kind of sadistic shit to itself?

DH's cousin just got a Boston Terrier puppy. Sweet cute pics of her on facebook are giving me a serious case of puppy fever. *sigh* Puppies are the best.
