It feels like my “to-do” list is miles long. The garden is a mess. (I still haven’t thinned those radishes.) It seems like when it’s raining I have time to weed, but can’t get out. When it’s a beautiful day for gardening I have errands to run and places to be.
Last weekend Orion and I went to Gilda’s Club to celebrate Gilda Radner’s birthday and we had a great time. I got to introduce him to all the people I know from volunteering there. He’s still talking about it! We got home minutes before the rain started. Life is just like that sometimes, but it doesn’t get things done!
Tomorrow I officially start my pre-surgery diet regiment. I went to a class to learn what to expect and got a shopping list of things I might need in the next few weeks and for a few weeks after the surgery. I anticipated a few of those items, but there are still several that have been added to my “t0-do” list. It seems like every time I turn around it gets longer!
I went to make toast this morning and the toaster didn’t work. No electricity. No electricity in the entire bar that is the primary electrical source for my kitchen. It’s not the circuit breakers, it’s the uncanny old wires. Add hire an electrician (which may become an electrical contractor) to the list of things “to-do”.
In the next few weeks I have several doctor appointments, including a pre-op. I have questions that I need to ask the surgeon that came up during the “what to expect in surgery” class. I have to get Orion ready for the changes coming up in his schedule. (Helping with transfers will be a BIG no-no for me for awhile. I’ll even have to work up to tossing the wheelchair into the back of the car, and that doesn’t weigh nearly as much as he does!)
And then there is coordinating support. I can’t tell you all how much I’ve appreciated the kind words, thoughts, and prayers from my readers. The comments cheering me on are invaluable. They mean the world to me and brighten my days. They just don’t get the grocery shopping done. Yet another thing to add to the “to-do” list.
