This week is flying by for some reason. I haven't really done anything special. It rained for three straight days and the sun finally came out this afternoon. It good to see but it's still pretty cold out. Lot's of you are looking for Spring already. Me? I'd like to see at least one nice snow before that happens. I know some of you are sick of snow but we get so little here in Tennessee that everyone get's really excited at the slightest chance for some of the white stuff.
Monday my daughter came down and helped me do some serious cleaning. I straightened closets and cleaned up the files and drawers in my computer desk while she mopped my floors and vacuumed and cleaned my bathroom for me. I so appreciated the help. I dusted and did my laundry today. Now all that's left to do is light the candles, put the music on and take a nice long bath. LOL.
I retired from the GM plant that started out by building Saturn's back in 1990. I was very fortunate to get a job there before production was even started. I only worked for GM for 15 years and was concerned about taking the early retirement package in 2005, but I was starting to see the handwriting on the wall, so I did. Now that the stock is literally worthless, I'm glad I bailed when I did. The week before Christmas they handed walking papers to a substantial number of non-union workers again. A couple of my good friends were really blind-sided by it. One in particular will be 60 next month and is beside herself with worry. She needs a job and more than that, she needs health insurance (since GM is not providing her any). Once again, I got out just in time (as I have very, very reasonable health insurance with GM until I turn 65). Anyway, I said all that to say that we really need to pray for our country and our leaders. If something isn't done soon I don't know what will happen to all these people that are without employment.
On that note, I will get off of here and feed Gizmo (and myself). Of course, she is first. The main reason being I can't stand to eat with her watching me with those big eyes as if she is starving to death. lol. Have a good rest of the week.
