A plan for 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.

I see a sense of sadness, but it is Government

Watching the tube today “Fox Business” and I see a sense of sadness, but it is Government.  The Congress submitted a funding bill, the Democrats singing instead of voting, The President not happy – called a meeting – and refused to sign it as is.  They think the might have a way to get what he wants and will sign.  They are back at work to make a new presentation.  The stock market is reacting strongly at the proposal and also the rate increase.

In my opinion, I see the turmoil ahead to be very unproductive.  I believe the Government will not accomplish anything of value during the next couple of years.  Why would anyone want more than one term in this atmosphere?

WOW, what am I

  • I wake at 4:40 AM, my routine begins
  • I leave home at 5:30 AM to eat
  • At 5:54 AM I begin my coffee routine and enjoying the company around me
  • Some friends come and go while I am there
  • At 8:30 AM, my friend the cook sits beside me and we talk as she eats
  • I depart the facility at about 9:05 AM heading home
  • I arrive home, post some verbiage on WordPress
  • I complete my second phase of the routine at 10:04 AM
  • I sit at the computer, drowsy, and move to the recliner
  • I hear a knock at the door at 1:09 PM UPS delivery
  • WOW, What am I? Who am I? Why am I?
  • Awake now, a second awakening, a second life for today.

The doctors

Yesterday’s doctor visit went well, just some updates and questions, and come back someday.  I did find out that the VA clinic that I go to has only one doctor on staff now.  He is a dentist.  I see a nurse practitioner when I go to the VA clinic.  They are good but most of my work is outside the VA.

Ok, today was interesting.  I am scheduled for eye surgery, the replacement of the lens in the left eye on the 2nd of January.

I also found from the test today that I am bleeding inside my right eye, I do not think it is really bad because it has before, but again, I am diabetic, doing insulin, and that is where the major concern is for now.  I have to see a Retinologist which is located in the same office as my main eye doctor.  He will decide what my next steps are and if it can be done with antibiotics or surgery of some type.

It is always something but I will go as far as I can to get back to some kind of life.  This just an update on the doctor’s visits.

The true value of a manifesto

The publishment of a manifesto declaring a commitment to a said support for a project really has no true value until it is consummated by a proven investment.  The politician that presents a manifesto while running for office is blowing smoke until funding or approval is granted.  Talk is cheap even if in written form without the proper approval steps are taken.
