This morning I happened to notice that the last time I posted a blog was this past Monday. Wow. Where have I been?
Very busy, that's where. I finally finished my torturous navigation through the VA's Choice program and got Bill's appointment.
Folks, that whole experience just exhausted me. I am so thankful I was here to accomplish that task. It would have been impossible for Bill to do it. I feel sorry for those older vets who live alone and are faced with this option to get their health care. All the problems I had brought to my mind how Medicare would be if Trump and his minions privatize Medicare. I don't want to go on yet another rant about the evils of the Republican party's obsession with dismantling the social safety net but I have to admit I am very concerned these days what is going to happen for me if I should be in a similar situation years from now. Living by myself; old, feeble suffering semi dementia. I'll just live each day at a time and try not to get too caught up in that fear.
On this subject folks, I have to tell you that I am very concerned about the future of this country under this incoming Trump administration. And I am sick to death of seeing Kellyanne Conway, and her "little girl voice, on TV continuously defending The Stupid of Trump.
On to better subjects. Christmas is almost upon us. I'm still not in the Christmas mood folks. Sorry. However, the one Christmas tradition I do like is sending Christmas cards. I'm almost ready to send out my cards. This is how I keep in touch with friends, relatives and former co-workers who I haven't seen in years. My way of letting those folks know I'm still alive.
Lately I've been thinking a lot about my mortality. Especially since Bill had such a close call. I'm reading an excellent book now called "Being Mortal." This is a book I can recommend highly for all to read.
By the way, I've been working the hotel most of the week filling in for two of my co-workers. I work again tomorrow night. That's four days this week folks. I usually work two nights a week, which I am used to. I'm to too wild about working almost full time but I want to be co-operative with my fellow employees and employers. Besides, I'm taking off again in February and they're filling in for me.
By the way, Miss Kellyanne is on the TV again, lying in that fake, babydoll voice of her. Man, am I ever sick of her.
