Grumpy, gloomy day, that is what today is. It is damp and chilly and I just want to stay in bed. No can do. Staying in bed is not an option. I have to stay busy. I am making a dent in the piles and piles of paper junk I have accumulated over the years. Yes, junk. I tend to keep mail forever and magazines and newspaper and all that other stuff that I never look at again. This week I hauled out 3 bags of stuff. My shredder gave up the ghost! Now I have to burn the old bills and credit card offers and all that kind of stuff. I never send those things to the dump. My credit is worthless but no sense in letting anyone get half a chance at stealing me. I have enough trouble with me!
Be right back. The dryer buzzed.
Looks like I will be going to America's Best for my glasses WHEN I have $300. Glue will not hold the broken piece together(too much stress there) so clear tape it is. I did some checking around and prices are through the roof. Insurance no longer covers glasses so I am on my own. I am not able to get their 2 for 1 because of my prescription. I am extreme nearsighted with astigmatism and bifocals. My eyes are old before my time. I cannot risk losing my eyesight. Losing that will also be losing most of my hearing. You have to have eyes to read lips. No I am not total deaf. I do have some hearing, about 40% in each ear but that is not enough to always know what is being said all the time. I miss a lot or misinterpret what has been said. I am used to it since I have been this way since birth but that does not mean I like it! I tell everyone, if you can hear good never ever complain about the noise. Try going through a day when you have 8 birds not 10 feet away from you and you cannot hear them sing except for a note here and there. I never heard a cricket or a bird or a locust, or a katydid until I was in 5th grade and got my first hearing aid. I don't have one now. That is another thing insurance won't cover. $1500 a pop is out of my budget by a long shot. Funny thing insurance is. It will cover pills to help ED but not birth control. It will pay for a nose job but not glasses or hearing aids. Glasses and hearing aids are "cosmetic". Like a nose job is not?? A nose job can be done to "correct" a deviated septum. They know how to word it so insurance pays.
Enough of that already.
Weight. I am done to 189 this morning. That still classifies me as obese on the BMI scale. Tomorrow I might be back up to 190 but for today I will take it, I am under 190!
Ok time for my strawberry smoothie. Y'all have a great day.
