My 17 yr old daughter and only child is out of school for Christmas break, and I am scheduled off that day. (I didnt request it, I work Sunday through
Thursday). My hubby has to work, so I will spend the day wrapping Christmas gifts and preparing to travel 300 miles to my parents home in Southern
Ohio to spend the weekend. I have to work Sunday the 23rd and Monday the 24th, so I will come back home Saturday night. My teenager will be out
running amuck with her teenage friends enjoying her winter break.
I do not foresee anything happening other than a mad shopping rush on Saturday morning for all of the people who thought the world was ending and when
they wake up Saturday morning and realize it didnt they will all be out shopping for last minute gifts.
I personally think the world as we know it ended NOvember 6th, 45 days prior to December 21st with the elections in my country the USA. Not to start a
political argument or derail the thread, That was the beginning of the end for my life as I know it. I am losing my job as soon as Medicare takes a
nosedive with Obamacare and my health insurance around the same time as military retirees are losing access to Tricare Prime if they do not live 40
miles from a military installation. Ironically I work for a major insurance company and we have the worst most expensive health coverage there is,
around $3600 a year per person deductible so unless you are dying it is not worth it to take it out. You will pay out of pocket anyway and have $125
every pay period deducted to pay for it.
So, in a nutshell, I am going to stay home and reflect on the season and the things I have to be thankful for.
