Tuesday (Delayed)…. A “Nervous Nellie” day for sure was how the day began in anticipation of the new homemaker aide due. It turned out she looked like she’s a gem. A side issue was in that picture as the woman in charge of assigning aides had said in passing there might be help there with the storage problem. It would be a marvelous thing if something can be worked out. Of course, the big thing at present is getting out of the place for the window replacement. The date has yet to be verified again. That should have been done but it wasn’t. Cold weather’s a delay and is due next week, but they may work anyway.
Wednesday night…. Friend said something about stopping by early; the money orders for the rent still need to be bought. He didn’t make it. There is so much in disarray that it’s hard to concentrate. Little was done yesterday other than a substantial sigh of relief and even less was done today. There is such a state of confusion that a list for the aide to take to the store tomorrow was almost done when she’s not due back until Friday. Meanwhile, the change from what friend went and bought still hasn’t been totaled up and put away. A thought in mind is to go to bed. Gotta eat yet.
Thursday (Delayed)…. At this point (just Friday noon) there is no recall of what went on yesterday to any substantial extent. With a little thought, however, one thing remembered was the whisper of a real activity with the special project – a travel leaflet was left at the apartment building office – just to remember it. It’s falling by the wayside badly with the assorted things interfering from “real” life, like getting the needed medical back up. Earlier in the day there was an attempt to get something more on the relocating, but there was still no information. It’s hard to think clearly with so much changing.
Friday (Delayed)…. Determined to do something worthwhile, before lunch time a bunch of fruit cups were fished out of the refrigerator and distributed to other residents. Lunch itself was shoved in the refrigerator, and the homemaker aide was told to bring a fast food sandwich amid the errands. She did good again. In the distributing it was noticed that a relocating date was posted, so plans need a few changes as people have to be notified. Friend came in the evening and went to the bank for rent money orders. His daughter is in the hospital as is a person he looks after in the building. He’s very busy.
Saturday (Delayed)…. The important thing on the agenda was check the money dealings of recent days. There was the trip to the market on Thursday, and the rent money order stuff and so forth, and none of it was done. There wasn’t any going anywhere, either. Although it seems like the head was functioning well, a clear head being best to quickly get things done, as usually happens the routine of the morning skid into the afternoon, then evening. The weather being warm, the place was hot in the afternoon, which never helps matters. And, in the end, it seems nothing got done except some computer messages.
Sunday night…. The head were pretty clear this morning for a change. That’s a good thing anytime. Friend came three times today. There was a stop at about 1:00 p.m., which is usual and the plants were watered. Then there was the deal about the flower pot. One was needed for the new little plant brought last week and it wasn’t brought earlier. Well, the one brought was nearly the same size as what the plant already had. There was a second trip with cake, and a third with a flowerpot big enough. Clear head always makes for easier composing and the difficult posting in the Diary got done….
Monday afternoon…. As evening approaches, there is a sense of actually having done something. It took a bunch of scooter energy. The lady down the hall who has been re-potting the plants as they come did the newest one and brought it to the apartment. There was a trip to the office because there was a notice. While there, an inquiry was made about the moving to another apartment – nothing is open, she said. A second trip had to be made to take in the information wanted, which wasn’t on the notice. There was a third trip to give away unneeded things that are accumulating. What needed to be done wasn’t.
Something not amounting to much can seem like something.
