There is not yet any handy internet connection. It is available outside and back in a corner down the hall – at least it was, but the hall place hasn’t been tried for a couple of days and the scaffolding has been moved. Outside tiny bugs tend to fly by and run along the computer. The lunch lady is still regular as clockwork, but other people have been so out of it that other residents have been asked for help. The food truck did not come at all. It was due Friday. The aide was in an accident and was on sick leave Tuesday. Friend came Saturday for a while and didn’t do anything Sunday. (He skipped Wednesday.)
The “plant problem” went about like this…. All ten plants were crammed onto one table and the back ones were hard to reach. Another table was bought. It just needed to be set up. In the moving, friend just stacked them back the way they were, some still hard to reach. In addition the people who usually did the watering weren’t around to do it. Finally on Thursday, by accident, a friendly sort was spotted in the hall and asked to help move things. It just took maybe ten minutes, but with neither aide nor friend available, it could not get done as the old table had to be lined up with the new.
The plants were not the only new deal. A futon frame was bought with the idea of putting just one of the air beds on it (instead of having two, one on another), to see if that might be a better sleeping arrangement. Well the futon frame has been around for a month, and it’s still in the box. Things are upset enough for making mistakes in the checkbook. It cannot be said it’s never happened before in fifty plus years, but it has been quite rare. It took almost two hours to find, understand and clear up the figuring. It’s not sure yet, as it was done after the bank had closed, so there was no calling to check the actual balance.
Moving changes things.
