Would Love to Have More Visitors!

This morning was a very lazy morning, which was good because I was very tired. So I slept a lot and rested a lot. This afternoon was busier; I had wound care and my counselor stopped by. 

It's also been a somewhat frustrating afternoon. We just found out we have a $1400 repair bill to fix the furnace. Turns out we burnt out the ignition switch and the control panel. It could have happened anytime during the past year, which explains why it hasn't been working properly. I'm glad the maintenance man went over it thoroughly and found these problems.  Hopefully we'll get them fixed over the next couple of days. I think that's why it's so important to keep a reserve of savings around, exactly for things like this.

I should get the will this week. I am exploring additional options with my attorney. I can't share exactly what at this point, because I don't know if I'll go that route, but we'll see. In the meantime I admitted to my counselor that I was a little bored and not sure what to do. We determined it would be really nice if I had a visit once a day from a friend cause that seems to lift my mood and get my mind away from things. I didn't have one today or yesterday, and I hate to admit it but it's affected my mood a little bit. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE MORE VISITORS. In the meantime I guess I'm going to start writing on my book again. 

Hope you're doing well and have a good Wednesday!

Hi Dee,

I hope you start hearing the "knock-knock" at your door. If I were closer, I would come a-callin'.

How do you feel about Skype video calls? I confess, I'm Skype-shy but it is a neat (and free) way of visiting with people! And if you were interested, I would try to make it happen at my end!

I have to keep the next week and a half open and be in situ, because David M.'s sister is mightily ill with cancer, too, and I might have to ride herd on Logan by myself for a few days. I don't know about this cancer thing... it seems like when it rains, it pours, and I just want to kick that blasted C-monster out of existence. Thar be dragons out there, and I don't like it one bit.

But I've been thinking a lot about how me being in West Linn puts me *just* that much out of reach to be able to drop in on you, and I would sorely like to do that. It's a double incentive to know that visits are cheering. If I can pop down sometime after the 27th, how much of a heads up do you like to have? Me being the reclusive weirdo that I am, rarely answer the phone, much less the front door when someone calls on me unexpectedly... I assume everyone thinks just like I do, which is sooo wrong, I know.
