Stormy Weather

April 10th, 2013 at 07:16 am

Wow. I just missed being caught in a thunderstorm. When I left the house, it looked clear, so I didn't even take my umbrella. By the time I got to the second station, it was looking threatening, and after I got to my office it was a cataclysm! So glad it didn't happen a few minutes earlier!

I am thinking that on nice days I might add to my walk by getting off a station one stop further up the line. It would add 15 minutes to my walk. The advantage, besides more exercise, is that I could catch a (somewhat) earlier train, so I wouldn't lose any more time. But, as I said, only on nice days.

I ordered my prescription refill on the phone this morning and the automated system said that they would have to get in touch with my doctor. I don't know why, since I have six refills. Maybe it's just been too long since I've seen her. I'm thinking of finding a new doctor in my new neighborhood. Even though she is in the town where I work, I can't get there easily without a car. It would make more sense to have a doctor close to home, and just make my appointments early in the morning. I did a little research yesterday and I think I have a candidate -- a very highly-rated GP who also specializes in geriatrics. I don't feel old yet, but let's face it, that's the only direction I'm heading!

I voted last night, mainly to vote for school board candidates. My ex is a superintendent, and the school board is his boss, so to speak. He had strong views about who should be elected. I welcomed his input, since I really don't know the backgrounds and histories of the candidates. I have yet to check on who won, however. Anyway, how is this financial? The school board can fire my ex, and his well-being is still tangentially linked to mine through our kids. I also want him to remain fully employed as my social security -- for the first four years until I am 70 -- will be based on his salary.

Nothing else financial, except that I found a penny this morning and claimed $5 in Swagbucks last night.
