Shiloh, IL (Hi 80 Lo 47)
I haven't heard Jim's voice since mid June, so we were thinking where are videos with him talking. We didn't find any. It might be a good idea for everyone to take at least one video having a fun conversation, and hang on to that video for later. Our friend Gary, in North Carolina did a podcast video and I'm saving it.
Last Friday, I took Jim's name off the bank account. Saturday the account was no longer online so I was a bit panicky over the weekend to get it all back. Monday I was up early to call the bank and the lady helped me reopen the account in my name. All is well for the banking. I've been closing accounts since we got here like lots of music websites and subscriptions. The big stuff is the Social Security, Verizon and a few others. The military accounts switch isn't as easy. I had an appointment on base to work with the insurance, Tricare. I now have an appointment for ID card in November which will activate the insurance. For now it's still in effect till Jan 1, to give me time to get an ID in case something happens to the date in November. While I was on base I went to the commissary. It's my first time since Jim died. I am trying to eat right with lots of veggies and fruit. NO beef or red meat.
Rice, broccoli and carrots grapes for dessert.
Wednesday was a very rough day. It was two weeks since Jim's death, it's his birthday and the stress at the military signing papers for an hour wasn't easy. I still have a few accounts to work with and still working with dental insurance to get the military discount.
Friday and Saturday we had a yard sale at our sons. It was both of us selling items.
Since I'll be here awhile I'm making doctors appointments. It's time for vision and dentist. I already had my physical but now Medicare is requesting a "wellness" check to be sure things are being checked so to keep Medicare happy I made a wellness check. I made everything in October. I'm glad I'm used to changing doctors and sometimes it's a good thing to get other opinions.
The funeral is on Monday. I'm posting the obit in today's blog, just in case someone is in the area and would like to attend. Next blog next Saturday.
