My story is now 16712 words.

Trump hasn’t been president in over a year yet I still see his fucking face all over the web.

We went down to the pool today. Not long after I got up, and even though it was in the low 80s out and the pool was 84 degrees, it still felt a bit chilly. Just like last time, no one else was there. Also, like last time there were a few wasps and music was playing from the speaker outside the clubhouse. Hate to say it, but I think I liked the pool at the old place better, not that they would be swimming with highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s, LOL.

We’re going to be having a cool spell as well. We’ve been having highs in the upper 70s to low 80s and getting down just under 70 degrees at night, but we’re going to be heading for highs in the 60s and lows in the upper 40s.

On our way back from the pool, some guy slid open his lanai window and asked how the water was.

Then we ended up chatting with Roy for a few minutes. This is the guy with oxygen and a motorized wheelchair and an emotional support dog that Tom had quite a discussion with on yard sale day. He’s the guy that’s been here for over 40 years. He wrote our names down on a pad of paper because he has trouble remembering names.

I’ve been sleeping well, even though I still get bouts of fatigue and my nails still look horrible. Every single one of them has lifting. It’s hard to say if the treatment is helping or not. Why can’t I just have normal nails? Why does being hypo have to have so many annoying symptoms? Why can’t I just take the medication my body needs?!

On the bright side…if I make it through the rest of this roll onto days without anyone waking me up, that’ll make two rolls in a row and the first time in nearly a decade.

I checked completed diamond paintings on Etsy because I wanted to see if any of them are moving. Some of them seem to be. While I was at it, I got a great idea. Instead of framing a diamond painting someone did, they glued it to a painted canvas. That’s a great idea! Much cheaper than traditional frames or even the magnetic frames too. I’d just have to paint the canvas edges the color that would best go with the diamond painting, then glue the painting on.
