Hurricanes & Volcano’s….

When you chose to live on an active Volcano like Kilauea… you get used to it… had more quakes on Japan in the 8 years I lived there, than here….

Throw in a hurricane or two and you look forward to the rainy season, cause you know the ocean weather is slowing down… it’s only August and I yearn for the fall and end of hurricane season….

I knew what I was getting into when we moved here… but hubby had no clue and this was his choice to move here, I am along for the ride…

With all this mumbo jumbo being said, hurricane Lane is looking more like its going to hit the west side of this island and head straight for the rest of the islands… so internet, cell phones and land lines may just not be working for a few weeks if we sustain a direct hit to our link up on Oahu…

So if you see no writing, we lost our ability to communicate and are running on generators… and I will be doing a lot of cooking on our grill and no air conditioning… sounds awful, but if we are alive and breathing, I will take it…

As for life in general, this pattern of over all lousy feeling is not new, it’s very old and at least now I know it’s the neuropathy and nothing life threatening… just impacts my quality of life… and has for 58 years… okay, so I am whining… you wake up nauseated every day and see how good you feel… it does impact every aspect of my life and the biggest reason I use the pot so I don’t drop to 118 pounds again… With this pattern there is no munching at night, in fact the dogs are enjoying what is left on my plate after our meals… We had a kid back home that timed his dropping in around meal time…. his mom had been fighting and lost against cancer… Wonder how he turned out???

I am figuring it out… things to not do, so I don’t aggravate the situation and it is impacting the kind of home we buy next and the amount of land… hubby and I are most definitely feeling the impacts of our perspective issues… and slowing down was never part of our vocabulary till lately… So, concerned I am about the future impact on us in our next home and its ability to accommodate our needs as they change…

Thankfully I learned decades ago how to take on the government and other corrupt entities and we should be comfortable in our old age… I worry for those who are falling victim of this corrupt administration and what it will do to those retiring now or recently becoming disabled… and most of all, what this current administration is doing to veterans and the veterans administration… it was already a mess thanks to the Reagan era, now they are denying us care and making it even harder to get treatment… this is what North Korea and Russia and China do to its people… to see it in America is no surprise… the writing has been on the wall since I worked under Reagan… GOP won, American’s lose… especially the veterans…. 

Enough complaining about what I have no control over… the hurricane will be here soon enough…

TimesUp #MeToo

I Remember…..

Author: Adorable Spite

Domestic violence is an old song, sung thru the ages like a hymn and purported to be the way christians live their lives... full of deceit, hate, bigotry and most of all fear... It is that fear that cost me my virginity, my soul and most of all my humanity... I had to fight to keep the christians hands off my soul, but they stole from my body and so did the U. S. Air Force... Rape and attempted murder... but image was more important... Vance AFB and Webb AFB... #WhyIDidntTell #MeToo TimesUP, Circle of Silence is no more....
