Yes! I have a new computer. It runs great and is filled with programs and things for me to use. I thoroughly enjoy it.
I hope that it will work into a good venture for me. I enjoy it so far. My pictures I have already on the image folder. They are very good considering that I had no previous experience with a digital camera. I have also MIcrosoft Office and a CD Burner.
I hope that all of you will write to me with comments on your computers.
I currently have more money in my bank account than I have had for my whole life. It makes me feel good and I don't feel so nervous.
I also have bought all new clothes and some other items I'll buy are a new computer. I'll also buy a new overcoat and gloves for the winter months ahead. I only have to spend what I want to spend. It is all safe in my bank account. Social Security will give me a certain length of time to spend it in order to bring it down to acceptable Federal levels.
This money that I received was a retroactive payment from the US Dept. Of Veterans Affairs. I'll still get a small SSI payment and my Social Security check each month along with my VA check.
Well happy days are here and thanks for reading.
I'm feeling much better this month. I've got my work almost caught up. I couldn't write very much for the first several weeks after my Dad died. I've got my computer and my books. Also my family and I are still talking to each other.
In addition to the above, I've received a pension from the US Department of Veterans Affairs. It is a small one but it will make me feel a little bit better. I'll get a retroactive check in the four digits.
Thats all for now.
On August 23, 2006, my father died while in the ICU at a local hospital. He died of a pulmonary embolism and a blood clot on his brain. He was buried on September 1st at Mission San Luis Rey. It was a wonderful funeral and the priest gave a nice Homily. The gravesite service was wonderfully done also. After the service, we returned to my mother's place for a picnic of hamburgers, French fries and a soda. Afterwords I returned to my home. He will be missed by the whole family.
Summer Cold Turned Bronchitis
Just as I thought my August Cold was something else. The doctor gave me a diagnosis of Chronic Bronchitis. I was given some strong medicine to take that I picked up at the pharmacy. Five days later, the cough has gone away almost. My nose and sinuses are getting better. The only thing still wrong is my inhalation and exhalation. If it don't improve, I'll go back and see the Doctor again. A cold in August makes me think what I'm going to get come November and December.
I have anxiety almost every day in some way or another. This morning it was over a problem at the breakfast table. I live in a residential care facility and there are no private tables. One of the women that sits at the same table was having problems with her care giver and tried to discuss it with me. I told her that she should talk with the Administrator about her problem.
She seems to take out her problem on me and not with the proper people. I keep telling her that I can't solve her problems. I also tell her to take up her problems with a psychiatrist or psychologist. She tells me that she doesn't have too.
After talking with her, I get all upset and nervous in my stomache. I also have a headache each time that she asks. I keep telling those women that there is nothing I can do to solve their problems. They must do it with the Administrator or the Ombudsman.
I don't know how long this will keep up. But I'll bring it up next time at the Council Meeting. I hope that they will do something to help both of these women.
Today Tuesday was just another day in my life. I woke up at 6 a.m. and had some coffee. Then it was time to shower, shave and get dressed. Then after that I had breakfast and went to my exercise class. I got home and did my computer work. After doing that I went to lunch. The lunch wasn't very bad. It consisted of Chicken, Potatoes, Spinach, Fruit, and a Dinner Roll. After that I did my laundry and went to the clothing store to window shop. Then I came back to my place to write this.
Why do I say it is just another day? It is that way because it was just what I do every day. I eat, read and write. Also I take care of my body and my clothing by doing my hygiene. Some people that I know can't even do that and all they do is complain about it. Their all stuck in their own life and in a rut that they made for themselves. It is just another day in my life and that is why it is.
Could you believe it? It's August and I have a cold. It has been three days and my head is stuffy with a mild cough. Yesterday the second day, I had a temperature of 100 degrees. I took a aspirin and the fever went away. For dinner last night, I had two bowls of hot Turkey Noodle Soup with some Tea. That made me feel a little better. I slept until 7:20 this morning. Also I wonder what I'm going to catch during the winter if I caught a cold during August the hottest month of the year usually.
Problems with my Sight
Today I began having a problem seeing. Maybe I wasn't awake enough. I get tired looking at this screen all day with my eyes that one of them has a cataract in it. They are also very dry with no water or the tear glands have not been working properly. I'll see the Doctor in August so then I'll talk to him about my eyes. It isn't an urgent problem so I'll take care of it then.
In a minute, I'll go get some more coffee and wake up a little more.
Then I'll come back and go to my book site and read a little from my chosen book. I'll be back to this blog in a day or two.
