Wednesday Night, July 9, 2008

Hi Y'all. My eye is much better today, just a bit blurry but no squigglies. I bitch and moan and groan about my problems but in the big scope of things, I have it very good. I have my home with a very affordable mortgage. My vehicle is paid for; and I do not use my credit cards any more. I still leave home without my American Express Card and no one seems to care. I pay cash for most everything I buy, needless to say I buy very little. I used to love to go shopping and now have a house full of things that I often wonder what in the hell possessed me to buy that. Like an electric egg poacher. I had it for ten years before I took it out of the box. And I have used it not more than 4 or 5 times.
My healths is pretty good for someone who will be 67 in 24.1 days. My doctor says I will probably live into my 80's. That scares the shit out of me. I really do not look forward to another 20 years of life. I know a lot of people do, but I do not. My Mother wanted to live to be 101 and be the first antique in the family. She went at 81. Now I am not going to hasten my departure, but I would welcome it. I want to see what the next adventure is going to be.
Today I saw WALL-E. What a little gem of a movie. It really is not a movie for little kids. It is some really serious stuff. The theatre was full of us kids of all ages, but it was the adults doing most of the laughing. It was really over the kids heads. It is a movie that really makes you think. The scary thing to me is that Wall-E hoarded stuff but could find exactly what he needed at the time he needed it. Now I have a lot of stuff and can't find anything when I need it. The thing is I have a lot of stuff that I did not need when I bought it, and now I don't know where it is for me to find out if I can use it now. But one never knows, I just may find the thingamajig at the right moment to fix the whatchacallit. It Could Happen.
Today I am Grateful for:
God My Higher Power
My Sobriety
Mamie, my schnauzie.
My sponsor.
My home.
I'm never leaving it again.(yeah, right)
My Friends.
Pams blog today.
My blog posse.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

I am uncomfortable having too much stuff. I need to weed it all out again.

Reminder: 67 is only 13 years from 80...also, now that I'm 75, 80 doesn't seem so far away! Thanks for visiting my attempt at blogging.

As for stuff--I'd like to have a "Fire Sale" BEFORE the fire. We left our doors unlocked for two weeks while on vacation--hoping someone'd "clean" us out!
