A new, unknown creature is on the scene. It went zooming by near 6:30 a.m. on Friday, a grayish ball of alarming size, finishing touch for an annoying 5:30 a.m. (or so) trip to the bathroom. Maybe it is just a mouse. There was, of course, no going back to bed. At 6:45 a.m., an idea was to sit by the office hoping someone would get in early to send maintenance. The housekeeper drifted by and agreed to look around; she found nothing. At 8:00 a.m. the office was informed, and at about 3:50 p.m. the office was reminded a weekend was at hand with no activity from maintenance like setting mouse traps on the assumption of mouse.
There was a sizable crunch on Friday as not only lunch, the food truck, and the aide were due, but plans included discussing “The Project” with the aide. Also, the inspection came about, which this time included the manager himself. The aide couldn’t find an item at the market and got an unworkable substitute, took it back and worked overtime. In justice that has to be whittled off of upcoming visits. Tuesday’s visit, however, went well. Friend came Wednesday but as his family was going for a weekend vacation, Sunday’s “friendly visitor” was a sub that couldn’t be asked to do anything like go buy something needed.
As usual these days the money did not get sorted out in a timely fashion. As the rent is due tomorrow and the office is closed on Wednesdays, that needed early payment, like it or not. (And, no that’s not likeable.) The internet access is not changed and attempts at some workable system fell by the wayside again, given the likes of Friday. Maybe it can be tried again this week. The drug store again was called as a second vitamin was depleted, and they were again out of an item. The delivery was so late they were called again to see if it was coming. And, the morning light is noticeably coming later already….
Survival is harder in some parts of the world.
