What is happening to my world? I lived through a very hot summer just waiting for October when I could eat on the patio or sit in a chaise lounge and read a good book in the afternoon. It didn't happen this year; at least not so far. Last week we had a few nice days, but most were hot. Yesterday was cool but too windy to be outside. Today it is 51* and I will be moving my fleece warm- ups out of the spare closet and into my walk-in closet. This is not our normal weather, but at least we are not under flood water or orange dust storms.
Well, gang, I am sure that I am finally losing it. I had two really bad nights and woke up at 1 am Thursday and never got back to sleep. Several days ago I had looked at my calendar and realized that Thursday was my appointment with my doctor for a flu shot and my dentist to look at a tooth that is giving up the ghost. It was also the day to post, along with everyone else, on Climate Change.
Even though I was spacey from lack of sleep I showered, got dressed and ready for my ride. I had posted my climate change article the night before. While waiting to be picked up I sat in front of my computer reading my mail. I looked at the date on my time reference and, gasp, discovered that all of my Thursday activities were for NEXT WEEK! Yes, you got that right - I put those words in caps because I screamed them. What a doofus!
I didn't know whether to be terrified that this was the beginning of Alzheimer's or dementia or some other mental problem manifesting itself or just plain carelessness. Whatever caused me to jump ahead a week in my thinking, it was not my normal, organized way of doing things. I will leave you to your own conclusions, but I think I am missing a cog or two now.
Before I am completely gone I am going to post another 'take' on health care reform. Now don't close this window please read it. I promise you won't be disappointed.
The American Medical Association has weighed in on the new health care package.
