It has been a while since I have written on my blog. It was the first winter in this old house. I like to froze my big old shinny hinny off. My children took care of getting me extra heaters and extra Sherpa comforter and lap blanket for me to keep warm under. They were great too. I also inherited two new members to the family. My daughter brought me two Russian Blue kittens. I named them Smoky-kitty and Coffee-kitty. They are such a handful and are worse than two little toddlers. They get into everything.
Summer is finally here and due to the humidity, my left leg is swollen like a big sausage. That is the leg I have the most problem with. Life goes on and unfortunately for me I feel stuck in many ways in this house. The heat and air quality are hot and bad, I can’t even get out and sit down on my porch. The inside of the house of this house can be brutally scorching as well. I cannot totally blame my problems on the weather, because it is hard for me to naturally control my body temperature. One day it could be 30 degrees outside and I am hot and the next freezing. Same in the summer time. All I can do is adjust my clothing and keep hydrated with plenty of liquid—water.
Of course, this is my blog and I would be remiss not mentioning politics or today’s society ills. Well the drama on the hill is as usual—drama. The president seems to want to fight all this investigation going on. He shouldn’t. He should consider it as an opportunity to improve. I know I didn’t support him or vote for him, but in all honesty, could anyone else have done better? Maybe and maybe not. I don’t know the future. I just hope for peace in our country.
The society ills, well, we will always have those and we will have to bound and be untied to overcome what ails America. I know I sound uninterested in politics and society, but I have had some really bad problems—physically and mentally especially since Christmas. I feel I am finally coming out of it slowly but surely. I spent a few more days in the hospital. I do worry about all this teen gun violence in school. I know how to use a gun and use one very well. However, due to my problems, I am not stupid. I gave up keeping weapons when I got married. I really wanted a safe environment for my children to grow in and it was. I would no more own a gun because of the physical and mental illness problems that I do experience. Furthermore, I don’t see the need for one. I still strongly believe in the 2nd Amendment; always have. People must remember that it is actually up to the states to make laws for gun safety and not our national government.
I will make this recommendation, tell someone you love them every day. It truly makes a difference in peoples lives. My children are grown and still I tell them one way or another “I love you.”
God bless each and every one.
