I'm working on my budget for 2017 and I just entered all the medical expenses I know I will for sure have in 2017. Minimum number of individual transactions?
That is with no surprises. No endoscopies. No ambulances or hospital stays. How do other people do this? I have a really flexible schedule so having a doctor appointment every other week isn't going to kill me, it is just draining and time consuming.
And I was going through my medical receipts for this year, and EOBs and letters, and everything I've gotten from the pharmacies, hospitals, etc, and it is inches thick. I had to call CVS to find out why they stopped filling a prescription I need (no actual reason, they immediately took the hold off) and requested that they not send a 26 page explanation of my medication every single time they send it to me but they said they had to. It really is 26 pages. Why do they have to? I have been on this medication for 15 years. They have been the ones giving it to me for 15 years. If there were a change or something, fine, but it's just ridiculous. No wonder I have piles of paper everywhere.
In other news, I am seeing someone. We've been seeing each other for over a year now. He is very nice, which works out well because I like nice people. I shall name him...Handsome. I bring him up to say that Handsome taught me how to crochet. I love that.

In other news, this month is almost over, but if you aren't participating in NaNoWriMo (look it up), you might want to write for Wikipedia Asian Month

Then I realized that that would have to be pretty personalized or it wouldn't be very good. Because otherwise, one would equal something like "You open your drawer and see that you have the exact socks you thought you would have there" and ten would be "You win the lottery." And that is kind of boring.
I would want to include thing like
...finding a use for something that seems totally useless that I have kept for years for no reason. Like when I cut the legs off my yoga pants because I needed shorts to go run in and then just kept the legs portion around until, six years later, I realized I could turn them into a balaclava.
...forgetting my my umbrella at work and continuing to forget it there. And then one day it rains and I didn't bring an umbrella from home but it doesn't matter because I'd already forgot one there and can use that one.

I'm still working. Speaking of working, I received at work an email with the following image:

After years of "I'll get around to it at some point," I finally took a CPR/AED class and got my card. So for the next two years, I'm a card-carrying member of helpful people.

No. No, I will not.
Will I exercise because it will help me lose weight and make me slim and trim and beautiful?
No. No, I will not
Will I exercise because when I take the stairs instead of taking an elevator it means that I am helping to save the earth and using less energy?
No. No, I will not.
Will I exercise because I have gotten involved in a contest that means nothing with virtual prizes that no one cares about?
Yes! That I will definitely do.

Sylvia's sister is getting married next month and their aunt's gave her a wedding shower in New Jersey this party weekend. I took the bus to Pennsylvania and the Rivster, Poppy and I went to the Garden State for the festivities. Bette couldn't come with us as planned because she wasn't feeling well. This turned out to be ironic, because all three of us -and ten other people- picked up a norovirus there. But it was great seeing everyone.
