Saturday

Saturday, November 10, 2012

It is supposed to rain today, very windy,, oh well, we are going to head out into the back yard to clean some things up, move things around, fill the birdie feeder,etc.
For the first time in over a week, we have no errands to run, no appointments, nothing.. just bill paying, cleaning and hopefully, I can watch a whole tv program without falling asleep.

I want to get back on exercises with the ball again,, I won a Nicole DVD on the points wheel and it arrived last week, I still have not watched it,, that will happen this afternoon..

Like sands through the hourglass...

Friday, November 09, 2012

I have ranted, gotten depressed, vented, and now I am in a state of constant prayer,, like the nuns had us pray,, for the next four years,, will try to hang on and be grateful I have what I have..
I am glad today is Friday, that I have time to get more things done around here, put the grill and yard cart away for the winter months.. aka, the next seven months.

Time to hunker down and get more cardio in, lift those weights, bounce around the world on my stability ball.. (don't even try to picture that without laughing...)
I am happy that DD and I went to drugstore today and she actually got all four of her Rx's filled,,, usually most of them are never covered but the docs insist on ordering them..

Praying for those that still have no power out East,, that they get food, shelter and safety during this time of need.. I am really blessed, no matter how much I wanger(I just made that word up) on and on about my STUFF...

This election has turned my entire retirement plans upside down. Thanks to teh LAST presidents new law, employers that employ full time owrkers MUST provide insurance,, so now my employer has cut everybody's hours in half, hired more people... As usual, I will have to use my savings just to pay my utilities, no more $$ to earn for SS for retirement.. I will have to cashs in insurances just to pay my bills.
People who voted with incomplete knowledge of this man and his manipulations, will now make people like me, pay for the rest of their life. I will never have savings now, no more life insurance, no investments, smaller social security checks,(Sorry, ENTITLEMENT CHECKS!! That is what obama admin calls them: not earnings, but entitlements, like they are allowing us some of THEIR money,, not what we paid into for the past 42 years out of our paychecks...

All I can do is pray, for the ignorant, for the sneaky, for the greedy, for the people that will never see what is being done to us. This whole health policy thing was to shut us up, pacify those who were too ignorant to make themselves aware of the facts and those who do not care about any of it.
God help us all...

    I hear you and empathize. Obamacare was passed without even being read by the people who passed it (and exempted themselves from it).
The country is broke and can't pay for it.

Check, check, double check

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Got my furnace checked, dad's boiler checked, got my paycheck. Trash guys took the two lovely lawn ornaments to that big lavatory in the sky. As of last night, we now have two working toilets, shower and bath work great. Handy Joe did a great job.

HVAC guy was discussing his five point deer and showed me pics.. I told him he needs to keep that meat cool while he bleeds it out,, he said he was looking for an old fridge that he could use just for that.. I walked him into the basement kitchen and offered it to him. HE was thrilled and wants to bring his buddies to dad's house to bring it up and put it in his garage.
I am thrilled more than him:I am positive that it is this fridge( dark brown, from the 60's) that is making dad's electric meter spin like a top. We will see..

So glad I got them taken care of for the year. Voted, got everything in home ready for winter except my mood.

    Everything coming together, stuff getting fixed, clearing problems in a way that helps someone else. Reminds me of that old Chuck Mangione song, "Feels So Good." emoticon
