I’m in Jenny’s office while she’s asleep. My own computer is wonky — the trackpad isn’t working and the house ate my mouse, so here I am. Heading home tomorrow, if the bubonic plague doesn’t return and there’s not another blizzard.
I didn’t do half the things I wanted to do — no duct tape dummies or exercise tapes, not a quarter of the writing I wanted to do. But I think and hope I did what was most important (apart from a needed escape from the rigors of VT), which was make Jenny’s move a little easier. I couldn’t tote that barge and lift that bale, but I could provide moral support, technical support, a sounding board, and a useful ability to remember where things were put (except for my mouse). I imagine she’ll be sad to see me leave but relieved to have the house to herself so there’s nothing to distract her from the work she has to do.
So here’s what we (or I) do today.
1. Replace her (dysentery? diphtheria? oh, diabetes. I hate when I can’t remember words). Replace her diabetes testing supplies and pills. Since she’s been sick that’s gone by the wayside, and she has to take care of herself.
2. Return the refrigerator that doesn’t work.
3. Get the storage unit out of the garage and into the kitchen.
5. Get some writing done.
6. Take a shower.
And that’s just for today. Jenny’s stubborn — I can’t make her do the stuff that’s for her, but I’m hoping it will work.
Oh, and I need to see if I can get the wireless printer working. Which I’ll do now, while she sleeps.
It all sounds good. Yesterday she painted the rest of the bathroom, working on her McDaniel’s stuff, we bought a lot of paint and curtain rods, etc., put up a blind over the glass front door (needs to be replaced). My great contribution was to screw in a couple of switch plates, but hey.
With luck she’ll sleep late. I’ll take a shower and face the new day, and tomorrow (weather willing) I’ll be home. And that’s a whole ‘nuther kettle of fish, but I miss my boys.
So. What did you do yesterday (rested, I hope, unlike us, who are marking up for time lost to the Black Death), what are you doing today, and most of all, what’s on your agenda for the week?
