What is going through your head today Ron?
Well, I think we're done with the doctor's appointments at least until next month (Bill's cataract surgery). Wow, a who couple of weeks without a doctor's appointment for either one of us. Remember when we were young and we went, literally YEARS without doctors' appointments? That is no longer the case in these, our "golden years." Well, in many aspects these are our golden years except for our failing bodies.
I don't know but I think my brain is starting to also show signs of wear and tear.
When I talk to Pat (he of Toronto Canada) on FaceTime, he often starts the conversation with "What did you do today?" You know folks, now I have to stop and THINK . . . "what did I do?" Lately my mind has been coming up with a blank. Other than hobble out of my bed in the morning, stiff with my every encroaching arthritis, and having my breakfast of bran cereal, almond milk and fresh strawberries, my mind is pretty much a blank. Of course there were the string of doctors' appointments, visits to the local supermarket and BJ's Wholesale. Such is our life.
My work schedule at the hotel this month has left me totally confused (which doesn't take too much). My part-time schedule is Mondays and Thursdays from 3 to 11 PM. I don't remember the last time I worked those shifts. Sure would be nice to work them again so I can plan my
Hey folks, I don't mind switching around . . . . occasionally . . . . but don't abuse my easy going nature. Don't take advantage of me.
I also have changes to my work schedule but I try to let my manager know enough WAY ahead of time to he can adjust the work schedule. What really gets to me is all these last minute changes. I feel like a 24/7 fireman waiting by the sliding pole for a fire alarm. Enough already. There, I've had my rant for the day. Sure would be nice to get back to my regular schedule.
Folks, it is MAJOR cold around here, seventeen degrees this morning. I haven't had my daily exercise , 2 and a quarter mile walk for three days now. And I've been slurping egg nog and eating chocolate mint cookies every day. I feel the extra pounds around my middle already.
Oh, and one more thing. I had an appointment with my dentist yesterday. A follow-up to my new partials. I sheepishly admitted to him I don't wear them when I'm eating (all that food getting stuck in the partials, don't want to deal with that). I could see he was disappointed in me with his look. He said "You're defeating the whole purpose of the partials. They're so you can chew on both sides of your mouth now." I have to admit the partials do make me look good now, changing my "hillbilly mouth" to a regular, good-looking mouth. Oh well, I guess I'll try. Shamed into it.
I still am having a hard time wrapping my head around that Donald Trump will be our president. This all seems like a very bad dream to me. Every day I watch in horror at the latest childish tweet and threats. I can't believe what is happening to our country with this obviously unqualified person who is going to lead the greatest power on earth. Let's face it, Mike Pence is calling the shots. Trump was just in the race to win. Now all he wants to do is parade as many powerful people as he can to Trump Tower to kiss his
