[Wednesday: 3 miles; Saturday 6 miles, a lot of it walking, Mines of Spain]
I’ve been enjoying my new job. It has challenges, but I learn a lot and there is a wide variety of things happening. And I get to be a flunky and not really worry about long term success or impressing anybody.
My wife misses Mississippi. She wants to move back there. That may be later or it may be sooner. I need to keep working: I like to work and have interesting things happening. I like the income. And most of all we need the insurance plan.
So I generally keep my eye out for any similar positions that may pop up back where we used to live.
This last week one did and I sent in my resume. I am not enthusiastic to move. But it would at minimum be interesting to learn more about who is doing this kind of work in that area.
And here is where someone could take a turn toward politics and talk about how “universal health care” would solve this kind of conundrum. Which it might. But it also would be a substantial step down from the kind of service I get now. I think it likely would be a step down from the Medicare level of service that I hope to enjoy in a few more years. I could be wrong.
