A bright sunny morning!
Karma heading for the food and water that tastes so much better...
...than the identical inside food and water--hehe!
Okay--I spent time online yesterday looking up information on government sites and it doesn't look like the hospital/clinic can actually garnish my disability check or force me to pay more than I can. The federal government, on the other hand, can come after me at any time and take 15% of my disability check because of the school loans I can't pay--but no one else can, apparently. So...I am just going to continue to pay my $25 a month...forever...and see what they do. Everybody has told me not to fill anything out for them, either, about my bills, etc. So--that's my plan. Just keep paying my bill as I have been the past year--not going to send them the paperwork--and wait and see what happens.
Dagan and Leah have been sent two of these letters, too. They have made payments for Dagan's checkups and surgeries over the years and never had a problem. They've been steadily making payments, also, on the bills for Dagan's last pacemaker replacement. Suddenly it is not enough--and accounts are being sent to collection agencies. This just has to be related to the passing of the health care bill and spreading panic in the health care system.
On a perfect, perfect day to lift my spirits--gifts arrived in the mail yesterday!! :):)
My aunt, Mary Lou, saw this journal and thought of me! It is so pretty!
It's one of those blank journals that you can use for so many different things.
Reminds me of the farm where Dagan and I lived with Roger in Wisconsin. Loved the land...the critters...and those beautiful hydrangea bushes. Thank so much, Mary Lou--I love it!! :)
And look what arrived from Spruce/John from Nain in Canada! He made this delicate necklace himself, of course.
Love it! Gold and black--has a regal coloring.
He taped the necklace down on a piece of paper and that was also folded inside of a letter--but when it arrived the envelope looked like it had been riddled with bullet holes--ROFL!! I was very worried about whether it had survived the journey...
[Sorry--I removed the picture because it had my address on it--as several people suggested. I'll repost it with my address blocked out in a couple of days.]
...but amazingly the necklace arrived unscathed! Thanks so much, John!! :)
I made an attempt to take a picture of myself. This was before Leah cut my hair--around my birthday.
59 and holding. I kept giggling. Seemed so silly trying to hold the camera up and keep my head in the frame...
...and having my cat watch me like I was a crazy person.
Cracked me up. But there I am--as is. Tired, no make up...but happy.
And--our interview article was posted today!
I hope the link works for you.
Scarlett O'Hara was right. Tomorrow came. It's another day. ROFL!!! :):)
