Bone Tired

I think I hurt everywhere. Maybe there’s a spot right on top of my head that doesn’t hurt, but I’m not quite sure. I have worked my tail off the last three days.

Elle now has a room. Pop does too, and a new recliner. The garage has been cleaned out, and excess furniture has found a home in the space the cleaning created. Umpteen loads of laundry have been washed, dried and folded. We also made 1 trip to Goodwill and 1 trip to the city solid waste facility. We also visited Home Depot for some shower safety equipment.

Pop is a little concerned that he’s getting in the way. But it’s just everyone finding their groove and adjusting. My greatest fear is that he’s going to get bored. At his house, he had chores and his birds, knew where the grocery store was, and his favorite restaurants. Here, he’s commented that he’s useless. Today he emptied out the bathroom garbage. I made sure to thank him for that. I also told him that I’d show him our washer and dryer so he can do his own wash. That will give him something else to do.

Besides that, I’m not sure what else he can do. He doesn’t hear at all (sidenote: He’s actually enjoying Dancing With the Stars because he can see the dancing and not have to follow any plot.) his vision is OK, but not great. His hands are arthritic, and his walking is a little shaky. His hobby at home was feeding the birds. Here we have mostly grackels – I’ve seen a few jays and cardinals occasionally.

Thank you all for your well wishes. I hope to be able to get around and visit you all very soon. I just need to catch up on so much!
