Some Christmas wishes didn’t get sent as planned. Too many things interfered. Indeed, if last week was turmoil, there’s no knowing what to call this week. Early in the week it was learned that a very special (and often helpful) person was in surgery and is sick. Wednesday someone left a mysterious package at the door. At first it looked like it was actually meant for a neighbor, and there was a to-do about exploring the matter. And, now what to do with the stuff has to be figured out. The nurse’s aide was needed early on Friday, and she had to come late. At least someone can come to help get cleaned up (at least for a while yet) when things are worse than usual.
With the holiday today (a Monday) the church-goers had two days of it in a row and looking for someone to do an extra errand was something one could just forget. It being a holiday as well as the normal day for the food truck, the holiday got preference and the food truck won’t be around until a very inconvenient this Saturday. Lunch Lady had no delivery, however, she kindly made a special trip with eggs. The nurse’s aide who would normally come on Monday is scheduled for tomorrow. The little club meeting on Saturday turned out great as a new lady showed up. That was the bright spot of the week as the anticipation was that this week there would be no one.
Young Friend’s group took on the matter of making sure Christmas was not a day to be alone, although that isn’t always a bad thing. The feast dinners they bring several times a year are nice, and are like one would have at a family event. The rent has to be paid this week. Someone to get supplies still has to be found as Older Friend can’t manage it very well any longer. Money, as seemingly always now, is still in disarray. Essential matters such as the computer and telephone are not getting needed attention. Obviously a posting did get done for each of the active weblogs (just a hoped for accomplishment these days). …But, the bad is not so bad as it snowed Christmas Eve.
May everyone have a wonderful New Year. 🙂
