Well all the Xmas decorations are down and put away for another year…finally. It’s amazing how patient I’ve become regarding some of these things…considering I’ve gotten less patient about others. As much as I love having the house all decked-out for the festivities, I’m always ready to pack it away and get back to normal when the holidays are done. For all of the time and preparation to get everything ready beforehand, it all goes by so quickly….and another year is gone.
Speaking of another year…
On Friday, January 14th, I’ll be one more year closer to being on Medicare. Good or bad, I’ve been looking forward to the time when I won’t be paying the horrendous monthly medical insurance premiums that I’ve been paying for the past few years since I stopped working….not to mention the ridiculous deductible every year. I thank God I’ve been able to pay them when I’ve needed to…now I just need to last long enough to reap some of the benefits of being on Medicare. Although sometimes I wonder about that too. So come Friday, I’ll just have one more year to wait. I never in a million years thought I’d be looking forward to getting older. Isn’t that a crime?
Now, on a lighter note…
We’ll be celebrating with a gift my daughter Julie and her husband gave Jenna and I for watching Bella and Bastian for four days before Xmas when they went to Mexico for some much-needed alone time together. We hardly needed or wanted any kind of gift for something both Jen and I enjoyed doing; but it was a very sweet and generous gesture…and one we will thoroughly enjoy.
Maybe some of you have never heard of this restaurant…I wasn’t that familiar with it either; but there are several in the Chicagoland area and suburbs. It’s basically a fondue restaurant…very delicious from what I’ve heard from those who have been there. And Jenna and I LOVE fondue.
So, we have a reservation for Friday and then we’re going back to Jenna’s boyfriend’s place to play cards. Gee, what’s new? I’m really looking forward to it…and I guess my diet will suffer for another couple of days.
Hope the new year is going well for all of you….take care.
