The concerns of the day, apart from the blog notes which somehow are getting done, are getting a payment in the mail tomorrow (the homemaker aide can at least address the envelope), a likely scooter re-charge (maybe it will last until Thursday morning) and assessment visit tomorrow by the aide’s supervisor. A short list for a trip to the supermarket also has to be made out. One of the pills (vitamins) are all gone. Fortunately Memorial Day came early this year. When it comes at the very end of May, making room to make a proper sad pause in life jams together necessities that nowadays are hard to get done ordinarily.

The supervisor for the homemaker aide came with her. It seems the agency has a policy of reviewing the job sites every two months to keep the records current regarding medical conditions. Presumably the reason it wasn’t done before was because there was not only a turnover in aides but also in supervisors. A nurse is in charge of the aides, and it does make sense. The really good thing that was learned was that the brother of the current aide said he was interested in the job of checking names for “The Project” on hold for so many years. If nothing else, at least that much might get done someday….

It’s rather unbelievable, but the fire alarm went off about eight times. It’s been known to go off more than once, but never before spotted throughout a whole day from 9:00 a.m. until nearly 4:00 p.m. Of course, it hasn’t wailed just right for a long time. It could be it finally demanded some attention, but a siren was heard after the last wailing as well as the usual ten-fifteen minutes after the first wailing. With the alarm being just about four feet from the door, there wasn’t much peace and quiet in the place, and so much for a resting and/or catch-up day. At least the scooter got energized for the weekend.

One might say nothing’s new today in the apartment underfoot. The computer barely works (but there is hope for another). Scooter energy was wasted going to the office. At least the rent was paid and receipts for both May and June were obtained. More inquiry was put in about moving to another apartment and in regard to the heating/air conditioning unit. A new one of the latter may be put in next week. That would be remarkable service. Considering the recent new refrigerator installed, however, maybe that was something that merely needed a little agitation. The building is getting a lot of attention.

Somehow the world around feels okay, which isn’t necessarily how it actually is but it’s a bit cooler than the last couple of days. The entire day yesterday went to suffering with trying to get internet connectivity. The possibility of getting a new computer before the end of the month is also “invigorating.” Presently (at this very moment) the drippy nose and coughing business is minimal. It still is in play, but it is not constant, which is very helpful. The expectation at present is that this afternoon will be devoted to the rather constant need to re-charge the scooter batteries. A second scooter for back up would be good.
The scooter re-charging happened this evening. Somehow it made it through the day. Of course, most of the day was spent abed, since the opportunity did present itself. It’s unknown whether that really helps any or not. There are a few important things to do that should have been done over the weekend, like make sure the money is in some usable order, but getting online for just a few things like checking the email (important notices do come in it) is still hit and miss today. It’s presently almost the witching hour, but the messages for the week did get done. Now to post it….
Life can be a bunch of little accomplishments.
