Clearly, I need help with some chores. I could not find anyone because I don't know anyone. So I went into the volunteer office and asked them if they have a list of people who could do odd jobs for people. They do not but listened to my tale and said they would bring it up at their next meeting. Isabel asked me questions and made some suggestions and cheered me on. So when I got to the bakery, I asked the staff person - she lives here; maybe she would know... As I chatted with her, a woman was working on a laptop nearby and SHE said,
"I have phone numbers for you." So I went home and phoned:
On Thurs a man will come to help with wood and on Friday a woman who cleans houses will, at least, vacuum and we can talk about what else.
So, greatly cheered, I went to the edge of the edge of the city today and ordered new shelves for my china cabinet - expensive!!! but it will help. Then I asked R if we could divest ourselves of a large set of china, taking up most of the other cabinet. They are now half packed up. Tomorrow I am hoping I can find the energy to go to the mill and pick up the rest of my china cabinet treasures. I will offer my son and his partner whatever they want - if anything! I am ready to let go of a number of things - most of it, I think.
And the NP from the doctors office called to see how my lymph thing was - healing! - and gave me info on when and where to get booster!
Now, time for popcorn! I have found I sleep through the night better if I eat a batch of air popped corn.
