Tuesday was eventful. A neighbor got a few groceries to last a couple of days until more of “Life Without Older Friend” is figured out, which is always being figured out now. The nurse’s aide, badly needed by about 1:00 p.m Tuesday came very late. As Mondays are her regular day, while it is understandable, it wasn’t very comfortable. Friday was a regularly scheduled day, but, of course, she was off again today. A check was made with the drug store regarding their current delivery schedule (it was disrupted for a while) and their merchandise (some things weren’t available for a while). Real panic started Wednesday when a burning cigarette was found on the floor, but there was no fire.
Somehow with the help of the nurse’s aide, the trash of nine days did get hauled out on Tuesday, but how that can be handled in the future hasn’t been figured out. Neither is the plant care figured out. In addition to the other concerns, both the air bed and the scooter battery re-charger reached the end of life expectancy. A new air bed has to be found, and they haven’t been too available. Outside it snowed a noticeable amount. The temperatures were near zero, and it’s a bit surprising people got around. Lunch Lady was apparently heaven sent on Friday as she came with an air filter and clean-up alcohol even though she had no lunch delivery. The clean-up alcohol from the drug store is another kind.
There was a “Lone Ones” meeting on Saturday that ran over-time. There was also some confusion with a subsequent and unexpected visitor which knocked the “breathing treatment” capsule business three hours off schedule. While that didn’t seem to have a major effect, it is best to have something like that at a more or less regular time. Yesterday morning had another “middle of the night wake-up” and something different was tried, which didn’t work. The apartment rent is paid and the food truck did come all right on Saturday. The big thing looming in the week ahead is whether the internet and storage payments have been made, and, if not, getting them paid as well as getting ordinary stuff.
May it be a good year for all. 🙂
