2019 Life Logs, Day 6: Last Day in Tennessee
Date: Sunday, January 6, 2019
Weather: Sunny; High 63, Low 44 degrees F
Location: At Home with Patsy and Joe Kerwood in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee
It feels like I just got here, but it is time to fly home tomorrow. I have an appointment with the knee surgeon on Wednesday that I really can’t miss. It takes so long to get an appointment and I would like his opinion on what has happened to my knee since the fall on Halloween. I’ve seen his assistant twice, but I want to see the surgeon to make sure that whatever I have done is not going to cause problems with rehab after the surgery in February. So home I go.
I had another massage today compliments of my niece Janet and did some shopping for Patsy. Her entire house, except for the bathrooms, have wood floors and she didn’t have any easy way of mopping them. So I bought a Swifter Wet Jet for wood floors. I came home and mopped the whole house except the master bedroom and it was so easy. Plus the floors look great. I bought other household items—extra sheets and a new mattress pad–and then I came home so she could go to the grocery store to finish the food shopping I did yesterday. She can no longer leave Joe alone, so as soon as possible Janet is arranging help to come in three days a week, but in the meantime, she has plenty of food, an easy way to clean floors, and extra sheets. Now she just needs a live-in housekeeper to cook the food, clean the floors, and change the sheets. But I’m afraid neither of us can afford that!
It was a beautiful, warm day here with a high of 63 degrees. It actually looks like early springtime. When I arrive in Boston tomorrow afternoon, the forecast says it will be 30 degrees but feel like 21. Ouch. I am going to have to do some quick adjusting.
