Monday turned out okay but it was very hard to get out of bed and get going. I did my knee exercises and eventually drove to St. Mary’s to drop off my yard sale stuff (it turned out that Mary was wrong and things started on Sunday so when I got there the tables were was loaded with stuff and people were driving up with lots more. Luckily I got rid of all my stuff and my books then I helped set things on various tables after they were priced. At 7 I joined the Holy Spirit Group and made a few funny comments. Glenda was there, which was nice, as were most of the regulars. At chatting with Felistus after the meeting, I was stunned by her situation, with diabetes and only Joseph working, and by Kate’s situation (she finally after three years got a work visa. If I had the 55K that I should have gotten, I would have been able to pay off my equity line, pay off Tracy and still have some cash to help out. Now I have to be so careful about every dollar. Yet I know I am so spoiled and as I rode my bike at Tech I started crying about how hard life is for so many people.
Tuesday was another very hard day to get up but I did and eventually drove to Dr. Trivedi’s to get my shot to help my blood. They didn’t have my lab results so I had to wait an hour and a half to get the shot and it was pretty painful. Then I went to East Coasters and Ian put a new tire on the back and fixed the shifter. One of the other fellows put the replacement piece on the rack. I couldn’t tip them as I usually do and I got dizzy at the store.
