I finally finished the family room yesterday. It's been an ongoing project because I was also going through a lot of paperwork and my desk and books etc. This room is where I spend most of my time. Just about everything but bathing and cooking takes place in this room therefore it's hard to stay on top of it and keep it organized. But finally yesterday I even got to the point where I could cut the magnetic strips to lay down for Edna's "boundaries (my robotic vacuum) and I "let that pony run"! That Edna is a whiz and I do love her so! If you're wondering what's on the telly....it's The Walton's! They are my dream family! I love that show.
I was on the internet and the phone yesterday more than normal. I needed to order candles before it gets too hot to mail them. I'm almost out so I ordered a bunch. I love McCalls and then I found some called Aunt Sadie which had some interesting scents like fresh cut grass so I had to order that! I like candle scents to match the seasons like I do decorating and cooking as much as possible. I think the seasons are God's way of keeping us from getting bored and complacent. It works for me!
I also had some problems with my insurance as my rheumatologist had not called them back and they could not get a hold of him. I'm concerned now as he is from Syria and the last time I talked to him (before all the turmoil there) he was trying to get the rest of his family over here. I have to call today and I am so afraid of what might have happened to him and his family. He went back about every 3 months. It's a small country and there are few there that this horrific violence hasn't touched. I still find it hard to believe that we and the rest of the world allow these awful things to take place. I don't understand all the "how or why" but I do know that killing innocent people is WRONG. Maybe more people need to watch The Waltons. I know...I shouldn't complain but try to do something but I'm older and sick and back in the day I DID do something; I marched for Women's rights and equal pay, I participated in fighting for black rights and equality, all peacefully. But now it's time for the next generation to take the baton and I pray they do because I'm tired and disappointed and sometimes it almost looks like we've regressed.
I apologize that this post is not very "uplifting" but as The Queen says....."Keep calm and carry on!". Have a great day!
