SHARE YOUR WORLD 8-9-2021

MELANIE B CEE rules:

Welcome to Share Your World! 

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  Additionally, I offer a ‘Gratitude’ Section for those who like a little affirmation with their questions!  It’s optional to participate in that of course. 

There are two ways in which you can participate:

  1. Create a Share Your World post. 
  2. Then post the link to that blog post.
  3. Alternatively, leave your answers in the comments box of this post.
  4. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  5. Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why that happens is an unsolved mystery.   For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!
  6. Some questions might be recycled from time to time.  Sorry if they come too close together!  The number of interesting questions (to me) is finite.   I try to mix them up judiciously but bungle that sometimes.  Mea culpa!

QUESTIONS

Restrictions are being lifted all over the world.  Do you feel it’s safe to go out and mingle in crowds in light of the Pandemic? No I do NOT! I think that is one of the biggest mistakes we can make. The current rise in the Pandemic is something I knew would happen when they raised the bans and stopped requiring masks. People don’t have the sense they were born with it seems. I could pretty much predict everything that has happened so far and we are not out of the woods.

What are some things that are okay to do occasionally,  but definitely not okay to do every day? Eat a ton of ice cream. I don’t know when to stop.

Would you relocate for love (romantic or otherwise)? I moved with my now ex-husband when he went into the Marine Corps. Now it would depend on the situation.

Do you believe in any conspiracy theories (no judgment)? Yes and there are plenty out there about the virus and the government and I very much believe in some of it being true.

#weeklysmile, Non-Fiction, Prompt

The Weekly Smile for the 9th of August, 2021 #weeklysmile

The Weekly Smile for the 9th of August, 2021 #weeklysmile

My smile:

This is kind of weird. I complained again to the aide agency about the fact that they were giving me night hours when I need help getting bathed and dressed for the day. My original aide is back, but can’t do days. So the agency manager/owner said I am going to call your case manager and tell her we can’t help you. I said fine. I was already fed up with the agency and their nonsense anyways. I quickly called my case manager and warned her. She said she would start looking for another agency. If I get the assisted living I won’t need the agency as they provide their own. About an hour later the agency called me and said this is weird. I literally just got a call from one of my aide’s and she feels she is being abused where she’s at and she wants to work in Williamstown (where I live, but none of the aides want to work here) and two she wants mornings. A trifle earlier than I was planning on, but I can always take a nap later. So I smiled for that and part of me wonders if by getting an aide that will work out perfectly if I will get the room at the assisted living and not need her. Things sometimes work out that way.

#SoCS, Non-Fiction, Prompt

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 7, 2021

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 31, 2021

YYour Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wee.” Use the word “wee” or find a word that contains it and use it in your post. Have fun!

***************

This has been a physically and mentally draining week for me. The physical therapy on my foot really hurts and they keep adding more exercises which is affecting the rest of my body and then I have been back and forth with my psychiatrist trying to get my anti-depressant back to what it was. The trial didn’t work so I need to go back to my old cocktail and she finally agreed after suggesting several meds that I already know I can’t take. She says she couldn’t find my old records so she didn’t now what to suggest. All I wanted was to go back on what I was on before the trial change. Why was that so difficult???

On top of that was the assessment that included medical and financial questions and proof of my finances. I really like this place so hope it works out. I love that everyone gets private rooms and it is still being built so I will have a brand new room if I can get in there. Having the meeting and that they came to me I hope is a good sign.
