Catching Up But Still Behind
Friends, followers, and visitors!
It’s been a week since I published a post. My, time does fly. It’s not that I can’t think of anything to write. In fact, there are about 10 different posts I want to write. Several are results of trials. There is an award I need to accept, (thanks, Ilene), and I can’t leave politics out of what is on my mind.
Yesterday, I managed to catch-up on 5 days of blogs that I follow, but there are over 400 Word Press notifications of blog posts in my in-box. I might not be able to catch-up on those, but try to start fresh this week. Please forgive me if you’ve not seen me on your blog recently.
Just when I thought I would have more time to write after recovering from surgery, I experienced government and hospital programs designed to help senior citizen patients. With the exception of 2 out of about 10 individuals, dealing with them has become stressful and a waste of time.
I’m drawing boundaries now. That, and after a hard, snowy and icy winter, I had my carpet cleaned. It makes no sense having numerous people tracking up my carpet when the only thing they do is ask questions about things they cannot resolve, and leave saying they will see me again next week, or next month.
Tomorrow starts another day with yet another personal assistant. If she shows, (and it wouldn’t be the first time that the agency said someone was coming but didn’t), it means taking her through at least an hour of orientation. About 90 percent of the assistance I need is in preparing meals. Because I’m allergic to soybean oil, I have to cook meals from scratch. It’s become increasingly difficult finding a personal assistant who can do more in the kitchen than turn on a microwave. The last one claimed she didn’t know how to cook Success rice, (instructions are on the box).
I have yet to see Avengers End Game. I wanted to wait until there were no crowds, but then my oncologist started me on the immunology drugs. I don’t know if I can sit through a 3 hour movie with the muscle pains. On my list of movies to rent On Demand is Bohemian Rhapsody. The other week I rented The Green Book and really enjoyed it.
