My Day Thus Far with a bit of weekend review
Today on my second phone call I finally spoke with a human. This woman seems very excited about the prospect of working with the staffing place and being out sourced to me.
Maybe I should back track a bit and explain how I am able to qualify for this respite care. The respite care is not actually for me but for my soldier. Getting up at 0500hrs five days a week and not getting home most days until 1800 hrs tends to tire him out. Geez I wonder why? (sarcasm) Because of these hours he is usually too tired to do much more than vegetate. But the house has to be cleaned. When the weather is bad with cold wind and cold rain my body aches too much for me to be doing the light housekeeping. This is where the respite care comes in handy. I qualify for twenty-eight hours a month of help because of my debilitating conditions. So with any luck I'll have a respite care provider by the end of the day.
Over the weekend I was moved a few things about the house and picked up stuff that had to be put away. Picking up the four hand weights, two five pound weights and two three pound weight, that had been used and left out was a bit too much for my carpal tunnel issue. I now have a bruised left foot and holes in the tile floor from dropping the hand weights. This morning I called in the work order to have the tiles replaced.
Yesterday I went to chapel. My husband and a few others carved pumpkins. Four were set, one at each direction, two others were placed in front of the altar. This week some time we will get around to carving our own two pumpkins. For now the orange fleshy globes reside out-of-doors awaiting their timely slaughter. I love carving pumpkins. I would buy more decorations than what I have now for this fun holiday but with the Army I must remember to keep my decorations for each holiday to a minimum or risk having to give them all away each time I move.
So fingers crossed that I'll have someone to help out around here with the little projects that involve chemicals at the very least. I prefer continuing to breathe.
