So, as I wrote in: Vacations – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly being in the sun for a week really helped dry out my crappy lungs from a long, damp, Winter. Then, I wrote about my money troubles in Languishing, and I’m now pleased to say that my 2015 bonus (profit sharing, that used to be paid quarterly) paid out on the 15th, so I’m solvent, short-term, once again. Phew !
But, that being said, the Roomie now wants me to join her in Maui on her vacation in May. And, the lawyer is up in arms that I went anywhere while my disability ruling is in question (because, apparently, handicapped people must only sit and wait to die. Unless they’ve been approved for a “Make a Wish” event for a final trip. Sheesh!).
Anyway, last night was all about the Roomie wanting me to spend the $$ now to buy tickets, and her refusal to understand that the lawyer put his foot down (even though he knew I was going on vacation on the cruise), and I’m not supposed to be going ANYWHERE until after the disability decision is reached by the Feds.
It’s a good thing that I rescheduled my plans to get to England until next year (bucket list item), as well as the Georgia Hot Springs / Cape Hatteras / Yellowstone national parks for “someday”.
There’s already been enough time this Winter when I could only sit and exist, that I’m not going to embrace that way of life any time soon.
If I don’t get these bucket list items done while I still can, there will come a time when I am physically unable to do so, or I will have run out of time. I don’t resent sitting in a chair and doing nothing (another tell-tale that shows me my body IS winding down, because I’m too tired to be resentful). However, to embrace the sedentary lifestyle before I must? No way !
