a little of everything, Bali Indonesia, chronic heartburn, colonoscopy, looking for new doctor, not rich enough, old but goodie, Seinfeld life
Unlike Seinfeld, this post is about everything.
Bali is not enough!
I told the overly excited accountant that I am not interested in a second date. He said: “It sounds like you have somebody else.” I said: “No, that’s not it.”
And that is the truth. Even if I was not interested in the Older guy from the past, I would still be saying no to him. Being alone is not an issue for me. Being with the wrong person is.
He was a nice guy and he was trying hard. I feel for him. He said he got divorced because his wife left him for a guy that made more money. He is now very proud to be making a lot money. Every conversation is about how well his business ventures are doing.
He was even talking about vacations in Bali. He showed me the Instagram photos of the villa in Bali where we would be staying in. All very tempting, but not tempting enough to forget that I know he is not the one for me.

On the way to one month and more
Tomorrow night it will be the fourth date with B. I will call him B. instead of Older Guy from the Past. When do I stop counting dates? Perhaps when it hits one month. Then I will start counting months, then years. Yes, I am feeling ambitious.
But no, I am not making any plans more than one date at a time. The future no one knows, I will know when I get there. For now I am enjoying the infinite possibilities of the present moment.
“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.” – Thomas Merton
Peaceful time at work
There were two people at work that really annoyed me. There was the guy that blocked me. I thought I had canceled him, but turns out I cannot cancel co-workers on this program. So I blocked him back when he tried contacting me. He now has to use email to reach me. That has been working fine.
The second was a woman that, one day would act as your best friend and the next would bit your head off. She would become so defensive that it was impossible to have a conversation. Things got a little better when she decided to just continuing working from home. She was easier to avoid over the phone.
She was fired this week. While I am happy I will have peace from her, I feel bad when anyone gets fired. Her firing had nothing to do with me. It was due to poor performance. If she were still bringing money to the company, she would still be here annoying me.
Sending her good wishes. May she find a better fit for her.

It is like looking for a boyfriend, only worst
I am in search of a Primary care doctor. I never cared for the one I had. He never discussed anything. I always felt he was in a hurry. Am I asking too much for a little more time and attention? Is it crazy to want a primary care doctor to go over blood test results, especially if some numbers are high? His assistants were also the worst.
He has been my doctor for the past 4 years. I don’t like changes, but decided that keeping him because I don’t like changes is stupid. Similar to dating, I decided to start looking until I find the right one for me.
Also, on the health topic, I have scheduled an appointment with a gastroenterologist. Since I contracted covid at the end of December, I have chronic heartburn. I removed some of the foods that seemed to trigger it, and I keep taking Pepcid AC, Omeprazole, and other medications. Those helped a little. At this point, my family and friends are worried and want me to have it checked. I will also be speaking to the doctor about getting a colonoscopy. I never had it, and I think the time is now.
