My summer hasn't been to exciting. Went to Hampton Beach at the beginning of the month.. that was a nice trip although HB really isn't my style. Too crowded and touristy. We went up to Nubble Lighthouse in Maine the last day of our trip and then drove home. The ride back was miserable getting stuck in traffic jams most of the way.
My son turned 21 on Friday August 24th. He had a party at his Dad's and Kate's. I'm afraid of my son turning into an alcoholic because it seems the only way he can "bond" with his Dad is with alcohol. His Dad is a very bad alcoholic. Will probably kill him soon.
My daughter is 13 today. She is really her own person. Very independent but so immature too. Her hair is pink and I let her get her nose pierced yesterday!
I worry about my Mom. Sometimes she comes out with such mean statements. She told me the other day that my friends (hence me) make her sick because we support President Obama. She hates politics and just blindly votes for whomever is running the Republican ticket.
I want to be more informed. Seems I've always voted Democrat even though I'm registered Republican. I put in to be switched but I have to wait until after the Presidential election.
Funny, I can't remember who I voted for when Bush Jr was elected, maybe I didn't vote. I think he ran against Dole didn't he? I know I didn't vote for him.
Finances are still getting me down. Somehow we managed to blow through my whole SS check without paying any bills except half the lot rent. Rich is supposed to get his student aide money next week. That kind of stuff really bothers me. I hate being broke.
Rich is getting a job soon wiring an entire house being remodeled. The house is an old Victorian from the 1890's. He got some nice wood from it that he has been using in the house here for window trim etc.. I love old houses and can't wait to go over and see this one. If Rich gets known as being a good electrician maybe he can work doing that, he seems to like it. I'm sure he can get referrals from the guy he is working for now.
You don't have to be certified to be an electrician in NY, you just need it for inspecting.
I am not sure yet what I am going to do. I might go back to work part time but I am not sure how that will affect my SS. I think as long as I only work a couple days a week it won't count against it. I think I can handle doing some light senior care. The agencies around here don't pay much, so maybe I can find a private duty. I should start advertising at places seniors go. I can do shopping, laundry etc.. maybe advertise as a personal assistant.
Fall will be here soon. I like fall but after the leaves fall off the trees I get sad because I know winter is coming. I hate being cold. Of course with all these hot flashed I have, I'll be nice and toasty.. Ha!
