This is unfamiliar territory. I don’t usually have a hard time starting to write but tonight is different. I just feel blah. Maybe it’s because the excitement of the past few days is winding down and things are getting back to “normal” again (whatever that is).
I hadn’t gotten out of bed yet when the phone rang. It was one of my friends from church. She said she’d tried to get a schedule set up for housecleaning but the ladies either have health issues themselves or the people they’re caring for or they work. I’d wondered where she was going to find them. She said the church is willing to pay for the Merry Maids to come in once a week and clean and would that be okay with me? Yes, it would. So that’s where we left that.
She’s also working on getting people who can take me to pulmonary rehab if I qualify. I haven’t been evaluated yet so that’s still kind of up in the air. I talked to the therapist today and she said the sessions are from 12 to 1 three days a week. If she can’t find enough people to take me, could I ride the SETHRA bus? Well, I could, but I’ve seen people have to wait for hours for a ride. I don’t know if I’d be able to manage that physically.
After I got up and around, I looked at the Merry Maids’ website and it appears they don’t come to this area. Surprise, surprise. Evidently, they used to clean for the caller’s sister, though, so who knows? I guess we’ll find out.
Cuz texted that her construction partner’s procedure had gone well. He’d had a implant for pain management put into place. He had a temporary one before that worked so this is a permanent one.
No Catz were visible when I went out to feed but, by and by, a few, including Black Tom, showed up. Big difference this afternoon. Four of them, including BT, were milling around the front door.
Well, folks, I had a new taste sensation. I’d finished the So Delicious chocolate yesterday so I got out the PB & Cookies. It is GOOD! It isn’t too sweet and the peanut butter is just salty enough. There are chunks of chocolate cookie and bits of chocolate. If you have a chance to try it, do. It doesn’t disappoint.
In spite of my malaise (I’d dropped off to sleep this afternoon while sitting in Mother’s chair), I did manage to get less07m done and uploaded. After I’d completed it, I noticed the dates on the files on the server were later than my dates so I downloaded 8-13.
When I checked Facebook, there was a message from my nurse friend. She has stuff going on the next two days and did I want her to come over today? Not even feeling up to that, I suggested we skip this week and she was okay with that.
I’m almost to the bottom of the second box of tissue. That means there will be only 33 full ones left in the case (I have a box by the bed, too). If I live long enough to use up the rest, I hope there will be more where these came from.
