Yesterday evening it was just accidentally learned that today is a legal holiday known as Columbus Day. It used to be October 12, period. However, be it today or the 12th, it was a forgotten legal holiday which, seemingly, has never happened before. Business offices are closed on legal holidays and they stay high in mind because it’s not possible to do a lot of things. There’s been so much upsetting stuff going on that if it weren’t for the little daily record in the lower right of the computer even the year might be forgotten.
New Friend seems to be a thing of the past. There’s been no word from him for a week, however, there appears to be another New Person on the scene. This is unknown at the moment. There’s also been no word from Young Friend, and he’s usually in contact by now as to when he might come. Beat up or not, Nice Jewish Lady did go get money and some “emergency supplies.” There is cash in hand, but there is also money owed. Lunch Lady also came to the rescue with gifts. There’s, of course, no aide service yet.
On the whole, the past week was a case of “in a daze.” A neighbor seemed interested in being helpful, so it was suggested he could take care of the plants. He didn’t come. That may still be done by someone else. The telephone was too low on money until Saturday morning to be using it even for the Security Check calls. The calendars may be changed to October by the end of the week. The outside “sits” were skipped several times, and it’s not unusual for breakfast to be at noon or later and supper at midnight or later.
Getting back on track can be a job.
