I'm Still Holding on That It Will Be Alright

Things are less stressful here. We lost power for about 24 hours. No fun our lantern even ran out of juice. Lite plenty of candles and it a good choice for people up in Northern Idaho have two source of heat. We have 3 but haven't use the eclectic for ages. Well that not quite true. When I shower or bath I will turn on the eclectic heat in the bath room. I'm a wimp.

I'm a little congested and wish we had some mucinex, and I can get hold of it. But when I go into town I will purchase some them.

We're not doing Blue Apron for a while and it was good. But I think it wise. Murphy got his notice for his social security for 2018. In nut shell we're staying the same. The raise he got was ate up with increase in medicare.
Not sure what will happen to my job. Liz got her hours cut with her social worker, right in half.
Some time shortly after the first of year her hours she gets with me, well the medicaid hours will be figure. For in personal care giver which is me.
Well I would like an increase in hours and or a slight wage increase. I've heard a few companies is giving raise to there employees.
But the sad truth I believe with the new taxes it going to mainly benefit "Wall Street" but I never claim to be overly intelligent.
I got better deal on my new heatlh insurance. What people call Obama insurance has worked great for us.
I'm not impress what happen with the UN with the United States move the capital from Tel Avia to Jerusalem.
The only thing I'm going to say...We have a mental disturb president that leading the free world. Or what left of it.

There about 20 inches snow in our yard. After we got dug out and I'm so use of driving in snow. When I went to work on Wednesday I was pushing snow up and over my car.
Here in Idaho they keep the highway pretty plowed.

Not sure when Murphy and I will be going to Spokane for Christmas. At this time I want to leave Christmas eve between 3 and 4. It looks like were in for anther round of snow.
But we're do all un-wrapping gift on Christmas day.

Coffee is on
