I’m turning into her – After her retirement, my mom worried about money. She was on a fixed income that was small. Each week I would listen to the litany of what prices went up. I understand it better now. It gets scary when something doubles in price while there is no movement in your income.
The annual clean up starts – Some of the annuals have had it and I’ve started to pull them out. A month ago everything was lush and colorful but I can see the signs of fall and the changing light. I learned a long time ago that it was best to not wait until a severe frost in November to clean up. If I wait, the day I work on it is freezing cold.
Another sign of fall – We got the Medicare changes for 2021 in the mail. That is an exercise in futility. The cost of anything medical depends on how it’s coded. The beloved husband was hospitalized overnight earlier in the year and we thought for sure we would be responsible for a hospital stay co-pay but were instead charged for an emergency room co-pay. That worked to our advantage. It’s like a box of chocolate. You never know what you’ll get.
Is it over yet? – As the election heats up, I see people being mean. Having a different view is a right but being ugly about it isn’t. I am embarrassed by what I see people slap on their vehicles much of which makes no sense when you think about it.
So how was your week?
