Well, friend didn’t stop by yesterday (Sunday) and indeed did forget to mention he had a special event to attend until late Wednesday. No substitute came, either, but given the message on Wednesday, a need for doing some unexpected things was not a suddenly overwhelming surprise. The plants got watered. A problem with the plants is that some are a shade difficult to reach and the only thing to use is the cap of the jar. Water sloshes out of it easily and onto clothes, table, etc.
There was an unexpected need for laundry due to previous days rather than the past week. Two weeks ago the emergency stuff was used. While a competent homemaker aide did come the past Wednesday, it’s best to not count on that at all. Rescue was from the lady across the hall. Attempts will have to be made with the aide, however, for things recently covered by friend as he will be occupied with a trip out of state soon. At the moment there’s a piece of mail he would have handled to do.
The doctor was scheduled for today. He does not exactly come monthly any longer. It is more like two months or so. If it will ever go back to monthly is unknown. At least someone is coming every so often. The lunch lady came as expected. The food truck, however, was short an item frequently used. That is something that may have to be covered some other way. The pizza parlor is not a preferred alternative these days as the usual one insisted on (but didn’t get) a phone number.
Tomorrows are times for hope.
