It really has been a while since I last posted. Life has been just moving right along in the meantime. I have been trying to get my place in order, but it is of course very slow with more tired or pain days than not, but my biggest hurdle has been my homemaker service. It’s been really terrible, with so many no-shows that I’ve been lucky to have someone come in once a month over the summer. I can’t vacuum, and laundry is difficult due to carrying it to laundry room and back, and there are other issues. I’ve been working on doing something every day, like washing a few things by hand, but I am sooooooo far behind with everything.
I really hate being dependant on someone else, but you gotta do what you gotta do, I guess. At least I have a friend who takes me shopping occasionally, so I don’t run out of food.
I’m trying to declutter. I have too much stuff for this tiny apartment. Besides just the regular dross, there is an extra table, a loveseat that’s not really extra but I hate, and some kitchen stuff I never use. Baby steps, as Flylady says. But my steps are still in the crawling stage. 🙂
The weather has finally turned to autumn temperatures over the past few days. Down in the 40’s at night. The colors arent’ good this year due to the drought we’ve been having, and the trees across the street aren’t even turning yet. But cooler is better than sticky, any day. The sky is lovely, with puffy white clouds floating across from west to east. A good sign. It’s that darn south wind that brings the stickies.
I’m wishing for a good rain soon. We really need it, and I do like rain.
