Before momentous events, there often is a quiet time.
Before a thunderstorm there is a quiet lull. The leaves hang listlessly, there is a vague yellowish-green to the sky and clouds. The air is heavy and slightly damp to the nose.
Before the “Big Game” there is a hush in the crowd.
Before a war there is a quiet – a silence as the foes keep their strategies from each other, and their plans for attack secret.
We are in that period. Social Security and Medicare are on the horizon. Sigh.
Getting the paperwork together is a pain. I thought I had it all, now I find I need to take in last year’s tax return. That’s another problem. I can’t remember where I put it, so I’ll have to call Bill-our-Tax-Guy and demonstrate to him – once again – that I’m a complete ditz – and ask him for a copy. Just Dang!!
The quiet before Social Security. Medicare. Sigh. Only a year late getting it all together for applying. Not bad for me. Sigh!!!
