Tuesday was the kind of day that drains me for several days. xbf came at 9:30 and frind's husband was coming at 10 to work on plumbing. I was up, bathed, dressed and exhausted by 10 when she called and said it would be around 4 or 5 pm before they could get here. sigh
The guy who mowed last time was coming at noon. I had already called him and told him not to come until 3pm because there would be children in the yard.
At 1 pm I had an appointment for a haircut. Exbf hung out six towels and a pair of pants for me, things from a load I washed on Monday.
I struggled to get dinner and served that about 4:30. Around 8 pm I discovered that I had not put the two cups of cooked rice in the taco casserole. Friends came at 5 or so. He worked on under-sink plumbing and there are still two leaks. As they were standing outside talking, they told me the guy was mowing.
When I rushed out to check the blade height, I found he had scalped my front yard!!! When I reminded him to raise the blade, I told him how unhappy I was with what he did. I made him put the blade height as high as it would go. He wanted to mow more and change the blade height "later'' after he had mowed more....grrrrr. I had to insist several times.
I have not viewed the job because I did not have the energy to walk to the back. Besides, I did not want to talk to him nicely if it was not better than the last time. It was almost dark when I went out to see where he was. He was using a weed eater. He had walked home with mower and come back to weed eat. He still charged me $30. Sweeeet!
The towels on the line stayed there for 5 hours and were still very wet. when I brought them in. The humidity is a killer. It saps my strength. Sweat dripped into my eyes as I sat inside in air conditioning!
Around 7 or 8npm or so, I lay down and woke around 2 am to find I had slept on a bag of cherries. They are now all mush. Wednesday is soon enough to deal with those.
Today, as I went to the car which I had parked on the street, Maggie May followed me, talking all the way. Exbf saw m coming back. He remarked that Maggie May was following me like a puppy.
Tomorrow will be a do-nothing day for me. My skin hurts. It really is discouraging not to be able to do things I could years ago, even a few years ago.
I discovered I can get a movie channel--gettv. It is all old movies, just what I like. My antenna costs me nothing per month, a good price.
Do you ever have a rough day exacerbated by humidity and too many people?
