March update

Seems I can manage to remember to blog at least once a month.
February was a pretty dull month.  Not much happened.  My monthly planner looks like I did a lot but some of it is just reminders to do things!
My short term memory is not good and seems to be getting worse.  I can open up a new tab on my computer and then immediately forget what it was I wanted to look at.  
Month of March is already filling in with Dr. appointments for myself and Sarah.  I lost track of days and missed my appointment with my MH Dr. on Friday.  I'll have to call Monday and reschedule and order more medication.
I think I've figured out why I am loosing weight, besides my bowel issues.  I haven't been taking the letrozole for a few months.  I'm sure when I see Dr. L at the end of this month, he won't be happy about that.  I was running some statistics regarding my breast cancer and chance of recurrence using this tool.   http://www.lifemath.net/cancer/index.html
It isn't very reassuring when I plug in my info.  Even with the letrozole, my odds aren't that great.  I'm sure there are so many more factors to take into consideration, but I still need to weigh the risks vs the benefits.
We had a couple of nice warm weeks in February.  Even made it up into the 60's a couple days.  March came in very cold, but it will start warming up a bit next week.  The red wing blackbirds and grackles are back.  I saw a couple robins hopping around too, but they have been around all winter.
I'm taking Sarah and two other girls to see Pierce the Veil and Falling in Reverse tonight.  The concert is sold out and I forgot to get a ticket.  I talked to Jen from the box office and she said they will "work with me".  I don't mind paying, I just need to be in there with the other two girls because they don't have ID.  
I'm considering driving down to see my Mom in late April.  Getting the time off is going to be a problem however.  We have some staff that take entire months off, so if I can't get two weekends off, I'm not going to be happy.  I'm getting a little burned out at Gateway.  I'm feeling revulsion instead of compassion with some of the residents.  It isn't because I don't care, I'm just tired of the smells and sounds.  Death is ugly and gross.

New Year 2017

Yes, it is February but I think this is my first post for the new year.
Donald Trump is the President and I think we are living in an alternate reality.  He is doing a complete fuck up job.  Of course his supporters think he is a living god.  
I didn't really do much for January.  Been out of work for almost a month.  Going back Monday.  Did my taxes.  Getting about $4000 back.  Last year of the earned income credit.  I'm not planning on spending that money.  I am going to save it.  I'm still considering selling the mobile home.  I don't know if the park will want to buy it.  I need to rip out that bad ceiling section.  
Light flurries today.  It has been seasonable in the temps.  
I tried calling Dad but he didn't return my call.  I guess I'm disowned.  He probably expects an apology and he isn't getting one.
Taking the car to the garage on Tuesday to get the other O2 sensor replaced.  I hope that solves the issues with the check engine light.  I am due for inspection this month as well.  I was told I need to drive it to make sure that it doesn't come back on.  I'm hoping the owner will give me a break and let that part slide.  We have been over that already.  I think I need some brake work too.  Every year it is either the front or rear brakes.  I'd like to take a road trip and go see Mom in Louisiana, I just want the car to make it!
I brought Angel and Kimi to the shelter.  I hated to do it but they were pissing on everything and we have too many cats.
Not much else for news..

Moving on in a new year

Hooray a new year....  I don't really celebrate or get "into" a new year and resolutions and all that.  I've learned a long time ago that I don't keep resolutions and my plans don't usually work out the way I want them to.  This year, I just want to take a couple trips.  If I have to go alone, then so be it.  
I want to go to a different region of the U.S.  Southwest, Midwest or North West.  Rocky mountain, Utah and Pacific regions.  I'll have to fly out and rent a car and arrange affordable places to stay.  I could probably pack some camping equipment, but I would have to pay to bring it on the plane.  
The winter so far has been normal.  Cold and snow.  Not like last year with no snow!  I've had to fill the propane tanks twice already and I'm not too happy about that.  I try to keep the thermostat down but it gets so cold in here!  
I need to get a little more work done on the car and it should be good for another year.  It is in pretty good shape considering.  As long as the tranny or motor doesn't go, I'll be good.
I haven't talked to Mike in weeks.  Heard from him on New Year but that was it.  I miss him once in a while, but not bad.  No other romantic prospects in view.  No one wants old, fat Linda.  
Sarah's b/f is here from Arizona for a couple weeks.  He is such a nice young man.  Cute too.  Danny.
