Ecclesiastes 3:8 A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.
Mike at the National Museum, Cardiff, Wales. July 2017
Mike went to the Bennett House today. He says he can sleep at home just as well as he can sleep there – he doesn’t realize it’s for my benefit he’s going. I need to be able to get out of the house.
2 of Mike’s lunch buddies came to the house to look at our range and the melted plastic on it (one of the guys brought his wife with him 🙂 ) The stove is slowing getting back into shape as the plastic is slowly coming off the metal. Thank goodness. These are wonderful friends for Mike and they care about him bunches! I am thankful they are in his life, especially now.
I have decided not to use the landscaper I had planned on – the prices have jumped so much from October to now it’s totally ridiculous! I am going to have to piece-meal out the stuff I need to have done. I knew it would be expensive to do the landscaping, but $5,000 to put in a sprinkler zone???? Then $90 a week to mow the lawn! Nope, can’t justify that even a little bit. It’s time for me to learn how to use our ride mower. Just as soon as we get it back from the repair shop! Since Mike tried to chop branches with it as he drove it last week. I am feeling overwhelmed with all that needs to be done around the house, and the cost of trying to hire someone to help us. If I thought I could handle moving on my own, and able to find someplace to move to, I think I’d give this place up, sooner than later. Between the house, the yard, Mike, and the shop I am totally overwhelmed with all that needs to be done here. And I am 100% alone with it. So say a prayer for peace for me.
I convinced Mike to go to bed at 8:30 this evening, and it took him until 9 to get downstairs to his room, he wasn’t happy that I waited for him to actually get into bed before I left him, but I wanted to make sure he was okay. I need some sleep.
