I put in 13.5 hours today - after the route there was an e-cash (taking money to an empty or near empty machine), a service call, and a meet with a technician to fix an ATM. I keep thinking of having the end of this year off because I have told them when I reach the limit for Social Security ($15,120) I am quitting and they can re-hire me in January if they want. Last year I went over so much that I did not get checks in November and December and we still owed over $2,000 - that won't happen again. We are already almost half way there.
A family member is in the hospital on her death bed. Her kidneys are failing. It is truly death by knife and fork. I told you about her a few months ago. She is morbidly obese. She needs an oxygen tank and has to drag it with her wherever she goes. At a birthday party when she had to walk up a small incline to get to the house she had to lean against the wall and catch her breath. At one family gathering her husband put out a pie to share and said there had been two but she had eaten one of them. I have always felt sorry for him because her most challenging activity was working a puzzle book. He mentioned how he would love for her to do things with him but she just sat, and sat, and sat. Now she is spending her last hours in the hospital when it could have all been avoided.
People - we must quit thinking "it won't be today" and get this weight off and lead healthier lives. Libby is going to die younger than she should and it's her own fault.
