What's top of my mind: It's a jumbled mess up there so we're skipping this one this week.
Where I've been: I did make one trip to Kroger but other than that I've been at home or work. The weather has been gorgeous, so I have spent a lot of time outside which is wonderful.
Where I'm going: I will be working all week and then next weekend we are going to do some shopping and have a lunch date.
What I'm watching: The sunrises. This week every sunrise has been amazing. I only live a mile from work but that short drive this time of year is gorgeous.
What I'm reading: I finished Finding Betty Crocker. It was interesting but infuriating at the same time. To tell women they need to clean the house, make a delicious dinner and fix yourself up or you'll lose your husband is just mind boggling to me. I started The Answer Is by Alex Trebek yesterday. So far it is a really good read.
What I'm listening to: I enjoy not having the heat or AC on and the windows open. I can hear all the birds every morning and every evening and it brings a peaceful calm to my days.
What I'm eating: Thai chicken and veggies over rice. This year's snow peas have been delicious!
Who needs a good slap: A healthcare organization that creates their own insurance company, sells it to their employees and then adds the caveat that you have to use their physicians and facilities only. This isn't an out of network reduction, this is a flat out cannot go out of network. This was implemented in January and we are loosing a LOT of good employees and physicians because of it. I had a long talk with someone that has worked there for 38 years and recently survived cancer. We were both in tears by the end of our talk. My heart just broke for her. I know some may say well at least you have insurance. Possibly but taking our rights away to see who we choose and being able to use facilities with better prices is a dictatorship.
What I'm planning: I've planned my Birthday trip to Louisville and now I'm on to planning a BBQ for the big guys Birthday in July.
What's making me smile: This article really made me smile. Both sides of my family always ate at the dining room table and I made that a rule when I started my own home so I know how the author feels. The food is important but the people at the table and the memories are what make it special. How a Single Mom Conquered Dinner, One Pound of Hamburger at a Time (food52.com)
