Day 23 – 30 Days of ME!

Hello Readers!

Wow! Only seven more days after this post. I can’t believe we are almost to October! The colder weather is setting in and it’s starting to get dark out earlier.  Fall is definitely here. No way am I ready for winter. Unlike my brother and sister in law who keep posting snow blizzard pictures on Facebook!

Today, I re-applied for health insurance through the state. My current insurance is set to be canceled at the end of the month. I can’t have that happening because I need my meds. I hope that they will extend my insurance considering I’m not employed at the moment.  I also called 2-1-1 which is a United Way help agency. I called them to see if there was any assistance available for utilities and unfortunately, there is none available. Bummer! So, while applying for health insurance, I also applied for food assistance and emergency electric and heat assistance. I probably won’t qualify, but I tried anyway.  Doesn’t hurt to try.  I continue to look through the job boards and apply to those I think I might have a chance at.

Okay, so on to today’s topic.  It is “Something you crave a lot.”  When it comes to food, ever since my surgery, I really haven’t had cravings anymore.  Prior to surgery though, I think I craved chocolate mostly.  Chocolate has always been a favorite sweet treat.  I actually still enjoy chocolate once in a while, but I wouldn’t say that I crave it all the time anymore.  I used to also crave pizza prior to surgery.  I always had to have pizza at least once a week for dinner.  Now, I haven’t had pizza in a long time.

This is proving to be a rather boring post isn’t it?  Now, I crave things that have nothing to do with food.  I crave friendships and conversation.  I don’t like feeling lonely.  Once in a great while, it’s nice to have alone time. And, it’s actually a good idea to spend quality ME time.  I remember the days when the kids were younger and we were so busy as a family. I hardly ever had any ME time.  Now, the kids are grown, I’m divorced and I have all the ME time I want! Back then, I craved ME time and now I crave friendships and conversation.

Wow! Would you look at that…my post is going to be published before midnight! It’s amazing!

Wherever you are in this beautiful world, I wish you peace, love and happiness!

❤ Dottie
