A friend died suddenly, one of my new friends here at the apartment complex.
Then a few days later my dad went to the ER and is now fighting his way back from an unknown event in rehab (possibly a series of TIAs) (and doing better, but not safe).
To add to the stress levels, this week both my and Oscar's debit cards were hacked. Thank goodness for Fraud Protection Services! They prevented some rather large charges heading to such places as Ebay India and various other online retailers. We will be ordering new cards, and in the meantime will just deal with things the old fashioned way (cash and checks.)
The house is in disorder, BUT because I can do a certain amount, I have been able to keep up with dishes and some other basic cleaning.
Our shiny, creamy yellow walls are making each day brighter (I will have after photos well, 'after' some of the furniture is in place.) My knitting for Wool Aid is going well, my writing reviews not so well. But I keep trying, and write a bit every day.
Today I think I got more sleep than any other day so far this year. And I still feel sleepy but want to hold off until bedtime. Tomorrow brings more yucky stuff, a doctor visit (regular check up.)
Next week is Dad's birthday so we will be visiting him.
The end of last year was great, though with a visit from my pal Lynx and her son Uilliam.
