The hole in the air bed has not been found. But, then, maybe it will be found by the weekend. Then, if possible, it can be patched. If it is not possible, well, there has already be thought of saving such a one to make patches as the manufacturer only provides so much patching material – enough for about three quarter-inch holes. The thing was very seriously needed this afternoon. Nothing was ready for the homemaker aide as of last night. In addition a payment had to be gotten into the mail – all to be done this morning.
The lady came and the usual stuff was instituted. “Usual stuff” only lasted until the minute she left. Mail brought back included one of those “greetings” from the government. As suspected, the business of a couple of weeks ago was not all settled. They newly said they need a paper. A call was planned for a shade after 3:30 p.m. just to clarify it. After 3:30 p;m. the wait time might not take six dollars off the pre-paid cell phone. A shade before 3:30 p.m. what came unexpectedly was agency checking on homemaker aide services.
The call to social security was made anyway at around ten minutes before their office hours ended, and it was impossible to talk as an echo or feedback of some sort got into the works. It was horrible, as every word yours truly spoke was immediately repeated back to the ear and the man simply would not say something like, “Yes, you can call back tomorrow.” The only thing that can be guessed is that he didn’t hear it. Obviously tomorrow cannot be a sick day, bed or no bed. It snowed some in the morning. That suited the mood.
Mental activity is good for the elderly.
