...And I'm still adjusting.
This month feels like it's going to be one of just kind of treading water--not drowning but not making any big headway as far as paying for the big bills. I received a gift last month that enabled me to go visit my fella and I think that visit did us both some good. I *do* wish I was still there, if only so that he had someone he could decompress with after work, but we're making do.
And, just a day or so ago, I decided to go ahead and take advantage of some cheap airline rates and I'm heading to Florida for Spring Break. Never gone on a Spring Break vacation before so I anticipate some good fun. I plan to visit one friend whom I haven't seen in many years. We worked together, here at Dover, and gave each other a lot of shit back then. We've given each other less shit, nowadays, but I think that was because we kind of lost contact. That situation was remedied a few weeks ago and I'm hoping that our friendship becomes one of those that deepens in time. Good friends are hard to find.
After I visit him, I'll be heading over to the other side of the state to visit another friend (and his family). His place was a stayover during my trip through the south last spring. We've been friends for more than a decade now. I count him as one of my closest male friends. He's married but I keep telling him "If you were in an open marriage and poly..." lol.
More fun in my life: Physical Therapy. Last fall, it was for my shoulder. This time, it's for my IT Band across my left hip. It hurts after I run which then makes it difficult to run again and I enjoy running--aside from that pain--so I need to get it fixed.
And, finally, the "best" fun in my life: Waiting for the VA to get through with my disability shit. I called them yesterday, three weeks after they got the last little detail that they needed from me, to see about my claim. Estimated time for claim completion: December 29, 2017. It's February 2nd today. Now, I realize that others have been waiting eons for their claims to get processed and I'm not minimizing their shit. It's unacceptable all around!! For anyone to have to wait a freaking year is ridonkulous. I can understand a month or two; maybe three but almost a year. Stupid!!
