"At my house it started early. I had a lot of trouble with my mouse and then my desktop – things that had NEVER happened before. My mouse did fall and landed upside down. IMMEDIATELY I lost all contact with the display.... I came back and once again I couldn’t see the screen. I had to step it thru the “VDMI” and “other” displays and then suddenly it came back on! This happened to me all day yesterday. But today it’s all acting fine! That’s why I checked the computer for MIR dates. Why am I NOT surprised that it’s that time!....(And I can’t even describe what was going on with the DirectTV remote all day yesterday.)
I dread that MIR’s still going to be here for Thanksgiving! Even now I’m dreading going shopping for Turkey Day vittles!
Batten down the hatches!"
With so many things going on here I had totally forgotten it was M.I.R. (Mercury In Retrograde) Time, again.
I felt relieved about Mari's alert, because it actually explains a lot of things for me. So after replying back to Mari, I went to the 2018 Old Farmer's Almanac to check out the dates for M.I.R Time—November 17th - December 6th.
After reading the article I clicked on my Libra astrological sign to see what my sign can expect. And basically it said that I should not have a makeover. Indecision prevails and for me to limit my purchases.
I am cool about not having a makeover, because I know it would not do me any good, because I'm old. What has fallen has fallen and is still falling and will keep on falling. So I can deal with that—I think. I am just not sure.
Reading the last part of their M.I.R. Libra prediction was a little upsetting to me, because it said that Libra represents beauty, grace, diplomacy and charm and thanks to our friend Mercury—all of us Libras are completely out of balance for the time being.
This disturbing news hit me like a brick wall, because sadly I think it is true, because grace and charm have completely gone out the window and Tony can vouch for that, but he had better not do so. And that is a threat.
Lastly it recommended that I just relax, rejuvenate and refresh, but how can I do that now? I'm too upset knowing that I am completely out of balance.
After writing back to Mari and sympathizing with her about it being M.I.R. time again and it happening during the Thanksgiving holiday, I clicked on another e-mail from her with a link, that made me forget about my many problems: being charming, graceful, diplomatic and resisting a miracle makeover.
Because after watching Mac King's Infamous Rope Trick, which is incredibly great. A magic trick that even Penn & Teller can't even explain how he did it—I felt almost back to normal. So, I then had Tony watch it and he was as amazed as me.
And that is how I am going to end this post on a good note, because somehow I am going to have to figure out how to do the recommended 3 "R"s: relax, refresh and rejuvenate without shopping.
Y'all have a great evening and keep on laughing!
