Getting Things Done

I also decided to quit whinging and start DOING something about all the stressors in my life. I’m just not very good at diving headfirst into things and hoping for the best. I plot and plan and hypothesize, and by the time I need to take action, I’ve turned into a little pile of anxiety. A ball of stress. A wart of worry. Introvertism at its worst.

I’m happy to report that a year and a half after I was officially allowed, I finally signed up to get my Medicare card this week. (Medicare is like the public health system. From what I can tell, if/when you go to the doctor it’s kind of like insurance where you pay a little bit and they pay the rest. But people still get private insurance for reasons unbeknownst to me.)

Once I get that little card in the mail, I’m going to finally get my Australian driver’s license.

And then, just maybe, I’ll see a cute, little car in my future.

I also have things to take care of with the ominous Department of Immigration and the good ol’ US Consulate. Blerg. These things stress me out, and I’m acting like I don’t have to do it.

Anyway, we’re not quite dead yet. More to come…
