Weird life we lead.
Today;, the thermometer hit 68 degrees. Tomorrow night, continuing Sunday and Monday, we're expecting "Lake Effect" snow. SNOW!! Now, it's not like snow at this time of year is unusual in this area. Anything but. I can recall going "Trick-or-Treating" in the snow, wearing snow boots and heavy coats under our cobbled-together costumes to see the neighbors in that very small town. So snow is not totally unexpected, even a month ago. But I don't like it anyway, hate snow and cold and winter and all of that.
So there's that.
And we just had a rude awakening. Dear Wife was very very sick a few weeks ago. Off to doctor, pay the copay, then go to pharmacy, cough up more buck$$ that we really didn't have. Now, we got notice from the bank. A payment was declined to to insufficient funds. Except we'd not authorized that payment. It seems that, somehow, our insurance company's pharmacy decided to fill a prescription that was cancelled THREE WEEKS AGO! So, now, we're getting hit with a $39 NSF fee from the bank, for a outlay that was cancelled by the doctor, THREE WEEKS AGO!! Sure glad having that med, an antibiotic, wasn't an ugently needed life-or-death matter! Wife called the insurance company service desk, they are --naturally -- cancelling the already cancelled order. But we are also requesting that they cough up the $39 NSF fee. That is, for us, a very large sum. We truly have very little of the riches of this world. VERY little. That sum amounts to a week's grocery budget for us.
So there's that as well.
And I spent more time today cleaning up after the "rescue kitten" we've had for around two months now. She's growing, fast and big. Eating everything in sight. Unfortunately, her mother was killed before teaching the kitten some sanitation and grooming things. So, her "potty habits", among other things, are not too good. As in, lacking the ability to use toilet paper and wipes, or any desire to do so, her backside ends up with "remnants" of her bowel movements. Which are being transferred to furniture, flooring, walls, and our bed. I'm having to put an unused sheet over top of our made bed, letting the poop be on it rather than the quilt, and swapping it out about every day. NO, I am NOT happy. At all.
I am very carefully avoiding much comment on the current aftershocks of the recent election. I have some opinions, certainly. But the entire thing has gotten to be contentious, to say the least. Nasty, in fact. I am beyond weary over it.
Today's Old Testament reading is still in Ezekiel, chapters 17, 18, and 19
The New Testament passage is chapter 13 of the Hebrews, completing it.
