Sometimes life just comes blasting at you like a firehose. And you never see it coming!
Had snow days Monday & Tuesday. Wednesday, problems with our newest instructor that is my responsibility to resolve today. My father-in-law needs a heart valve replacement but may not be strong enough for the operation. Lots of phone calls back and forth.
Our elderly neighbor (who lives about a mile away) fell and broke a couple of ribs on Tuesday. We DO visit him and help him out; I make his phone calls because he's hard of hearing. When some telemarketer got him to sign up for $120/month of cable channels I'm the one to call and get them removed. TC took him to the senior center and navigated him through choosing a Medicare Part B provider. We also got him signed up for food stamps since he lives on social security payments of $950/month.
I take him hot meals occasionally and can you believe the guy had never had LASAGNA? (He didn't like it much, either!) He's an old farmer, a meat and potatoes man.
Well anyway, lots happening today but hopefully I'll be able to catch up with everyone later tonight or tomorrow.
