Winter in one spot

This is only the second year I have stayed in one place for the winter, not sure if I like it or not. It has given me the time and place to get my medical established along with all my other things that require a physical address.

Have completed everything needed for the RV so that it is legal for the next two years, also insurance and road side all set.

Working on my medical at this time, have seen a Doctor and all appears good, but waiting for blood test reading Monday the 15th. ( 1/15/18 ) …  My knee seems okay again but wonder when it will go out again, this last time it took three weeks to get better, used to be two days.  Once all my medical stuff is done I get to take my dogs in for wellness checkup and get more heart-worm and tic stuff for them.

Next item on the list is taxes, seeing that I worked and have a small pension figure I should do them this year just to be safe. Do not think I will have to pay, and might get something back..

 

By the time I am done with taxes it will just about be time to start packing the rig and moving North to Iowa and Adventureland park….

Most fun packing will be my plants, as normal I have started a garden and finding safe places for them when driving is always interesting.. Below are the plants I have so far, plan for more but taken my time. Hope to grow some Veggies this year along with the flowers..

Road To Eating Vegan……

I am slowly getting better at not falling off and eating meat and other stuff, but it is difficult. My family was never big on vegetables or fruit, so my system is craving chicken and pork. Not having any problems not eating beef, seeing I gave that up years ago. Fish I gave up when I could not get any fresh ones in the Western states.

When I go two or three days without meat I find I only need to take a pill about every 12 to 16 hours. Once I mess up it is back to 4 to 8 hours, proved that yesterday when I had some chicken. Wonder what is in the stuff that is causing my problems?

Well I have a Doctors appointment on the 3rd of Jan. so maybe I can ask about this. But as of now I have to make this new diet work, I will feel  better and may even save money on pills.

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas Decor is up

Okay so I only do the outside and to cheap to spring for a tree, so used a yucca. Looks a lot nicer at night when you can not see except for what the lights show. I do not have mush luck with night shoots, but will try to get some if I think of it and am not too lazy. So this is what i have done!!

OH yucca tree, oh yucca tree….. LOL…

Still Working on IT!!!!

Doing my best to eat Vegetarian, so far I think I am doing about 40%. I still have canned and frozen foods with Non- vegetarian ingredients and so eating them. ( not always a great thing )…

Have been taken notes a to when and how often I need to take pills for the bronchitis, when I go two days eating only veg. I can go almost 24 hours. When eating Non-veg, I sometimes need the pills every 6 hours. This tells me I have to do this to feel better and sleep better.

Maybe I can find a place to donate the other food to, I do not want to just trash it… First it was cheese, than beef, and that helped a lot. Now to stop eating the processed stuff I think vegetarian may be the only way. Do not want to go soy, that is not a great idea either.

So as of day ten (10) I am still at the I am trying stage…

 

This will be the pits for Turkey day ……… Hope you all have a great Dinner…

OH The Joy Of All The Health Care Laws WE NOW HAVE!!!!!

I have spent the last two weeks calling different insurance providers, Escapee Health ( not for NM ) Medicaid ( made too much money ) NM health ( hung up on me three times )…  Today I called Health.gov for NM and hit pay-dirt.  I found a policy I can live with, only problem is it has to be done online and the site will not let me log in after I created an account and PW. So called and reported problem, after two hours on the phone I was told it had to be reported to another department and to try tomorrow. So I now wait…..

I just wish the aholes that put this health LAW into effect had to have it. Bet things would be a hell of a lot better.  For this to be a fair law ALL citizens should have to have it, ALLLLL federal should be stopped, and sent to this, so all of the folks that think it is great get to play this game.. That way no person would have better insurance then another  without having to pay out-of-pocket.

Again thank you Washing D.C. ass wipes. I was so better off before Obama care and now Trumpcare…  AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After finding Healthcare.gov, it still took me hours of computer and phone time to get enrolled!!!!  Started Friday Nov. 10th, finished Tuesday Nov. 14th. Now have to wait for insurance company to send package and make first payment.  I now have so so insurance for $90 a month. All other places I checked wanted at least $250 a month for the same thing. Good insurance would cost me $200 a month, means going to work at least part time to pay. Retirement my ass…..    Again Thank you DC…. Dumb Collective…..

OMG…… Trying to go vegetarian

As my friends know I have had problems with bronchitis for a number of years. Found giving up cheese and anything from the cow I did better, still not great. Have been taken pills that allow me to function but still problems sleeping. Now I have discovered that if I only eat a vegetarian diet I only need to take one pill a day instead of three. But my problem is I only know a few things I like that do not have any meat, fish, or chicken.

I am having the same problem as when I first stopped eating cheese, I keep thinking if I only have a little it will not matter. It does!!!!! Each time I fall back I have to take more pills or I can not breath.  So if anyone reading this knows of good taste vegetarian dishes I would be thankful for the help.  I know I can only eat so much soup before I go crazy. Maybe if this works and I go 100% in I will not have to take any pills. Have to say this sucks!!!! I love most foods but veggies are not tops..  LOL…. But I prefer breathing to eating…  Most of the time…..

Black And White Challange

For the past week or so I was doing all my photos in Black and White only. Reason was I was challenged to post one a day to face book. Rules were simple, no people and no descriptions allowed. So I took my camera with me each morning when walking the dogs and took photos of what ever I thought was interesting. Have to say I got to see parts of T or C I would not have. So now that it is ended I am putting all of the B/W photos on the blog. The first seven are the ones I posted to face book, the rest are all extras.

Photos not posted to face book..
