Getting Back to Reality

January 11th, 2017 at 08:06 am

Well, back to reality. No one made my bed, no one cooked me any meals, and I had to clean up everything myself. Not to mention it's cold and dreary.

I went to Planet Fitness this morning, so I'm officially back in the routine. I stopped at the grocery and spent $19. Just staples and meal-finishers.

Today I'm having French Onion Soup for lunch, and tilapia with veggies for dinner.

I've done two loads of laundry. My "whites" basket is nearly full, but I'm not going to do it yet. Maybe tomorrow. I should wash towels, too.

C's surgery is scheduled to begin in about a half-hour. I'm going to go sit with DIL for a while later on. The surgery is estimated to take five hours, and she will be on pins and needles.

Work begins again tomorrow. I've already been warned that payment will be delayed, because they are having to open a new PO number. Sigh.

But it looks like my Medicare Advantage plan is charging me a little less this year. They only withdrew $26 rather than $29. Don't know yet if this was a mistake or an adjustment.

I did not take down my tree and Christmas decorations before the cruise. I would have, if I had been ahead on packing and everything else, but it was last on my list and I didn't get it done. So I came home to Christmas! Last night I took down the decorations and ornaments and boxed them all up. It is a little disturbing that they don't quite fit in the containers that I just took them out of -- did they multiply while I was gone? Anyway, I put some things in the Goodwill bag, because I'm not going to start a new container.

Now I have to take the tree and the containers downstairs. My new plan is to leave the tree assembled, since there is plenty of room in the storage unit and it is a major pain to get it back in the box. And it will be so much easier to set it up next year.

    I'm all for keeping the tree assembled. We have a "real" tree, but my buddy who has an artificial tree just throws a sheet over hers when she stores it in the basement. Merry Christmas!

    I am guessing that because the cost of Medicare (that is taken out of your monthly social security payment) went up thus making your "raise" in actuality nothing they are lowering the cost of the medigap insurance. My moms went down about $10/month.

    When does your PF do bagels? I've been there the last two Tuesdays, and no bagels??

    Hmmm. They are supposed to do bagels on the second Tuesday of the month, usually around 8 am or so. So they should have been there on the 10th. I would ask your desk staff about it.

    Oh ... in the morning. I go around 5 pm.
