It's that Kind of Week . . . sigh

It was a busy day. I crossed some things off my "gottado" list and added some new ones. Most importantly, I almost have my taxes ready to e-file but I need to get a couple things clarified -- grrr. I went out and took care of business and treated myself to a sub from Quizno's -- yum! Jeff called from Florida. He and Shaughnessy are having fun and his golf and tennis games still suck! No surprise there -- when I still could play, I could beat him at both sometimes (especially tennis) and I'm hardly a superstar. I miss that.

My hoped for move may not happen. Despite that it could save me greatly on my utility bills, I don't think I can afford the moving expense/deposit and my tax refund is going to be miniscule. Oh well.

A friend passed along these powerful videos by Keith Olbermann on healthcare and while I sometimes think he's sorta nutty, I think he really spoke from the heart and to the bottom line. I think y'all will agree. Each is about ten minutes long but I think they are worth your attention. I cried for a variety of reasons.





Happy Blogging!!!!!!!

  2. Have a good week-end. I think you need a spark of something new to get you going again. Too bad you may not be able to move.

  4. I saw these Keith Olbermann Videos and I think they are so very powerful and important. And for me, I don't think there is any doubt that he spoke from his heart in the deepest deepest way. Like you, dear Kay, I cried, too.

    I do not think he is nutty at all! I think he is a passionate caring man. He always was. Way back "in the day" he had a program here in Los Angeles and I just LOVED everything he had to say...PLUS, he has a great sense of humor.
    Personally, I count on the Keith Olbermann's of this world to speak for me. And this dear Keith Olbermann, Does! Praise God!

    I am so sorry about your personal situation Kay. Life is just so damned hard, isn't it?

  5. I bet you find a way to make the move work. Put those young men to work, find more free young men, free boxes, and 19 bucks for the truck. You make it a good weekend.

  6. Sorry, you won't be able to move. I know the feeling. We would like to move to the west side but it looks like we will be living here for awhile longer. We have been here 11 years and the neighborhood is going downhill.

    Hang in there, maybe something will work out for you.

  7. Still crying as I'm typing this Kay...the video on Keith's father was so powerful and heart-wrenching, and reminded me of when my husband, Joel, died.

    I'm sorry you're move isn't working out...I hope something changes so it can; but don't give up on the possibility.

  8. I missed seeing the first Keith Olbermann video and thank you for posting it.

    I love Keith, and along with Rachel Maddow, he is one of the few voices on the left to balance out all the garbage coming from the Limbaugh, Beck and O'Reily bunch on the right.
