I started getting so nervous and jittery at 7:00 last night. I was really dreading having to watch the Presidential debate. It makes me very uncomfortable when people raise their voices, or snipe at each other. I wondered what else I could watch on TV last night, while I sat and crossed-stitched.
It made me think of the other TV shows I watch. When Fred was here, we used to watch CSI and Medical shows and crime stories. After he died, I couldn't stand to watch them--the violence, the noise and I still don't watch them anymore.
So, last night after Jeopardy, John and Maizey stopped in for 45 minutes, then they went home because he didn't want to miss the debate. I came in and played a couple of Face Book games and then decided I should watch, at least part of the debate. I turned it on at 9:30 and Hillary was screeching about something. Then the Donald started in. Showing them split screen was interesting--to see their reactions while the other was holding court. It appeared to me that all the whole Donald was talking, Hillary was looking down at notes or something. Then when she rebutted, it seemed like she was reading from a well rehearsed script.
Then he'd start in and there she'd be, nodding her head, or sneering, then he'd do the same when she was speaking.
I flipped over to HGTV to watch Tiny House Hunting, but on their commercials, I'd switch back to the debate.
I don't think the debates are going to show anything new. I don't really care what either one says because they both lie. Neither one is fit to hold the most high office of the land. I don't think it will really matter who wins. Our country is in such disrepair, I'm not real sure it can ever be great again.
Thankfully, we only have six weeks to wait and then...Dear God, help us all!
I have to go to the doctor on Monday. A follow-up on my chest x-ray. Probably will have to have a CAT scan of my lungs. I have had a "nodule" off and on for the last 4 years. It shows up on an x-ray and then the next x-ray, 6 weeks later, it is gone. Still, when the doctor's office called to set up an appointment, I got that icy cold band feeling around my middle. That band of fear.
Last time I had to go back for a second mammogram. I am almost waiting for that call to come too.
My horoscope said 2016 was going to be a fantastic year for me. I don't believe in such things, but at the time, I thought, "YAY!" Well, it may or may not be true.
Whatever--my fireplace is being delivered tomorrow morning and I am going to enjoy it for as long as I have on this earth. God will take care of the rest.
