When I woke today, I had an issue that was on my mind. I had paid my rent on the apartment using bill pay from my bank, I knew better but I still was trying to use services that were provided. I do not use paper checks, do not believe in them. We had a holiday, so the delivery was moved around by the bank in the processing. Well it was a sizable value and I know the three day rule of the apartments lease. The check had cleared the bank but not delivered as of yesterday, today when the mail was delivered, my check was delivered and I was sitting in the office. I was so relieved.
I had to purchase a new printer this morning, the old one for some reason had a failure code of 97 and I could not find the problem. I got a cheap HP but full function, heck it even has its own email. I guess I can go online 1000 miles away and go on line and print at home. What is this world coming to, a machine with an email.
Now, as I do this, I have Elvis on YouTube doing his Gospel songs. He for sure was good at that, of course I guess it did not pay as well as Rock n Roll. I saw one of his concerts once in 1976 in Omaha, NE, the same year that I joined the Navy.
Days of the past…miss those days but life moves on for the good or bad.
I am, herein, expressing my opinion from my own perspective of what I did last week . It is simple but sad all the same. I have since 2010 been going to breakfast at the Waffle House in my home town, mostly every day. Now I have seen many come and many go from there. Some that I use to talk to left for good, their time card was punched and their pink slip received saying their days on earth had come to an end. I, on the other hand, have grown tired of the early rise in the morning just to go there and socialize with other old people that had to go to work, yet not able to, laugh, and pay a lot just to sit there and criticize each other just for the heck of it.
Well, last week I made the decision not to go all week. I honored myself with that decision and this morning I went to see what I had been missing and enjoying for a week. It did not take long for me to see what I had not missed. luckily, one old friend did come in and we talked a bit, he as I, do not desire the attitudes of some, so we had a great conversation and he went to the gym and I came home. I may go back on Monday just to say hello to a friend that works there and will be in at 5:45AM. Then I think I most likely call it quits and cook at home much cheaper and to my taste. No attitudes, and child play of 70 year old or older.
Last week I slept better, ate better, felt better, and just plain enjoyed myself as much as I could. I am not at the age that I have to just do the best that I can and hope it goes well with the Boss upstairs.
It’s been a week for a decision, I have now made it.
A few months ago I purchased a new meter and I found that the old meter was reading wrong many times and it was causing my way of life to be discouraging. The new meter is right on and I hope it will be as good for a while. I have no doctors for the rest of the year, they will start back during the first quarter of the year. For most part I am sleeping so much better, feeling much better, and I guess more excited that I have been in a while.
In addition to the above I have adjusted my diet and that has been hard for a country person to adjust as I have. I still have some work to do, like slowing the soft drinks diet, to drink more water, and move around more doing something constructive.
As the title indicates I do not what to say until I say it. A few more words of ?? is over for now and I am sure it will revive in the future.
As I slept this morning I heard a noise of which I could not locate the source, therefore, it continued to activate the noise, cutoff for a minute, and restart the noise. It was not my cell of which I thought it might be initially. It was not my tablet which was turned off. The watch that I was wearing at the time, it was also not making the noise. I looked around and I found the source. It was my other watch which was on the charger. The alarm was going off at 4 AM. This was the first time that I have heard it and, therefore, I sincerely did not know at the time what it was.
While all of the above was going on my routine for the early morning had concluded and I was beginning to get adverse feelings from it. I reacted in kind and tried to couner any reaction. I was able to reverse the feelings, but remained in a gloom because I did not know if it was indeed over. My intent at the time was to move back to the bed and return my efforts in sleep. I was on the recliner until about 10 AM.
I just looked out and even with an occasional sun burst, the payment is wet and a sign of mist has been falling. My vehicles are both in the garages.
With my efforts to assauge my concerns, of which I was able to do so, and now I am feeling well and ready for the next events. I will take my days activities forward and to success for today.
The morning came early today.
Today, the Friday before
A plan for today is to maybe prepare slumgullion or something similar and sit to enjoy the day as it begins to an end. The weather is rainy and I can’t think of a reason to get out in it unless I need to run to the store for some drinks.
My ambitions it a plan for today.
