When I started this process February 1st it was the best option given the information I had at the time. I had no idea it was to be this difficult and I find myself somewhat mystified at how I’ve come to this precise juncture. Nothing is working the way it was promised. I’m truly not complaining. I’m not unhappy (anymore); just mystified. My brother just bought a three bedroom house in Florida. He is unmarried, without kids. If I get SSI, it’s an attractive option. We get on quite well.
In any case, I promise to either finish a painting or pick up the manuscript. I’ll decide in the morning. Meanwhile, thanks to Bob for his good intentions. And all the rest of you who wish me well.
