This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Well, imaginary readers, the new job is 3 days in and doing fine.  Lots of training right now learning an operating system, history, philosophy of the company, and stuff.  It's fun except from some reason sitting on my butt all day blogging and reading never bothered me but sitting on my butt training sucks.

Open for opinions on that topic.

So, for the next 6 weeks, I will only blog on weekends, which might be good because maybe fewer blogs will increase the quality of the blog content, then again, maybe not.  It certainly can't make it worse, in my humble opinion.  I got a health care quote where everyone is focusing on the guy saying health insurance companies will soon be obsolete but there is another quote in the sentence that sent chills down my spine, working with elderly the way I've done.

Oh, and man do I love a health care plan with 300 deductible for 30 bucks a check.  Jeesh!

See ya later alligators.
