.Well the big day came and went. I could not have done this without my Brother-in-Law who was a big help moving furniture for me. Moved tote boxes to open up floor space, etc so the pest control could get into corners and closets etc. My ... Read more

I have a really nice friendly mailman. He always has a smile and calls me by name, asks me how I am. He had a package for me today, and while he was at the door, my BIL arrived to take me to the postal outlet to collect a parcel that apparentl... Read more

Got a notice on my door today. They are spraying the building for bed bugs on the 13th. I have lived in apartments for most of the past 40 years but never had my apartment sprayed as often in all the previous 30 plus years as I have had in the 7... Read more

BIL came by today, brought me some eggs he picked up for $2.77 fir 1 1/2 dozen, Great price! Cheapest we usually get is $2.29 / doz, so I was happy he thought of me. He also brought a few bags of chips and fun bars that they had left over... Read more
Over for another year.....
Thursday, October 31, 2019      4 comments

I really am not a fan of Halloween. To me it's just a day of candies I don't like, chocolate I don't need, and a lot of scary costumes that I find evil and abhorrent. Thank heavens this day is almost over - gone for another year, and no... Read more
Slept the day away
Thursday, October 31, 2019      5 comments

I simply could not get back to sleep after the fire alarm last night. I am grateful it was a false alarm, but it was still hard to nod off. So I slept the greater part of the day away. When I did get up, I got my kitchen cleaned up, made ... Read more
False fire alarm
Wednesday, October 30, 2019      5 comments

Someone in my building set off the fire alarm and we had at lease 2 fire trucks here. Lots of seniors and old people with mobility problems so they go door to door to see if they have to help anyone out. Luckily it was a false alarm so everythin... Read more

I need to get my knitting table cleaned off so I can get my machine back into action. I keep putting it off. I think of it, but then get distracted by other things. Not necessarily important things, just things! Like what's for dinner, doin... Read more

They went around to all the units and tested everyone's wall jacks. But I did not know if it had actually been fixed until my evening care worker came at 6. It works! I am so relieved.... Read more
Subsidized Housing
Tuesday, October 22, 2019      8 comments

I live in subsidized housing. Don't get me wrong. I do appreciate having a roof over my head, heat, lights, etc. But there are drawbacks. First is the problem with the cigarette smoke that seems to seep through the walls from one unit t... Read more

BIL took me to the store to get my water jugs filled and so I could buy some more tests strips at the pharmacy. As we were walking into the store he asked if I needed anything else and I said I wasn't going to get much, but I did want to get s... Read more
Insulin pump?
Saturday, October 19, 2019      4 comments

I went to an education class on insulin pumps today. I learned a few things, (yes, even this old dog can learn a thing or two, lol) but I don't think a pump is for me. Not quite as simple to use as it might sound at first AND very expensive. ... Read more
