Am I really turning 65 in a few short months? How did that happen? I guess I am now a senior citizen. ARGH!!! Almost daily I am getting solicitations in the mail from companies trying to sell me insurance. Medicare is sending me things. OPERS (kind of like government "Social Security") is sending me things. I am so confused. Do I want Medicare and Medicap coverage? An advantage plan? Holey moley it's confusing. Today I met with a volunteer from the Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program. She is certified through the state but is strictly a volunteer. She spent two hours explaining things to me and even followed up already by phone on a prescription issue. Now it's time for me to do some research and make some decisions.
Last weekend I headed out to play in Seville, Ohio. Seville Antiques is a wonderful primitive shop. Most of the antiques are too "primitive" for my style (and too expensive), but sometimes I manage to find a treasure or two. I added a new stuffed pug to my collection. Now I have triplets. (The pug to the left was a gift from Joanne who used to blog at Snippets and Scraps of my Mind. It was a kit that I never got around to sewing. It sat in my closet for many years and was beautifully sewn by Melinda of Merry Wind Farm.)
Don't they just have the sweetest face? Just like the real thing . . . sigh.
I also got a strap of old sleigh bells from Tweedthistle Primitives (Gabriella can be found on Facebook) that will be put to good use at TubaChristmas ~ a Christmas tradition for DSO, grandson Jake and me.
Tomorrow's the day my #1 bad boy arrives from California. I have to pick him up at the airport bright and early but I'm not complaining. It will be so nice to spend time with him. Both my boys have grown up to be fine men!!! What more could a mom ask for?
Thank you so much for all your comments on my last blog post. It warms my heart how kind and sweet you all are. Sorry I did not respond to each of your personally, but life (and decorating) has gotten in the way.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
