Kathy and I keep an erasable calendar on our refrigerator so that we know what is going on for the month. I took a look at just this week and sighed. Just looking at what was happening tired me out.
Easter Sunday – As we do for most holidays, we took a rid to my brother’s. Our family seems to gather there on special occasions. It is always an enjoyable afternoon and one we look forward to.
Monday – Because we sold the house in Shenandoah, we had to be there for 10:00 so that the water company could do a final meter reading for us. Not a major problem, but it did mean getting up by 7:00 to be ready to leave by 9:00 so that we were there before the water company person arrived. We did come straight home afterwards.
Today we had the house closing so that meant getting up and being in Schuylkill Haven, a 40 minute ride, for 10:00. After closing, which took all of 15 minutes, it was a trip to AAA since that is where we had house insurance. We talked with someone about canceling the policy since we no longer needed it.
After that we had to celebrate the selling of the house. What better way than lunch at Hoss’s Steakhouse. I was a bit careful in that I had tilapia and rice pilaf instead of a steak and baked potato.
After lunch we took a trip to the post office in Shenandoah to let them know that we no longer owned the house and any stray mail should be sent to our Hegins address. We then took a quick trip to the cemetery whee Kathy’s mom and dad are buried. Kathy wanted to and I totally understand why.
Wednesday – we get to stay home because it is my day for the visiting nurse to come and check me out. I should get some rest tomorrow.
Thursday am scheduled for an echo cardiogram in Reading, and hour and 15 minute drive. At least it is not until 11:00 so I don’t need to get up too early. Of course, since we need to go to Reading and it will be lunch time by the time the appointment is over we will have to find a place to eat. Oh the hardship! This also means that we will just have to stop at Barnes & Noble.
Friday we are off to Bedford Springs for a PCTELA (Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of English and Language Arts) Board meeting. Any other year I might have begged off, but since I am chair for this year’s conference in October I figure I had better be there. We will get home some time on Sunday.
It is no wonder I got tired just looking at the calendar. Oh well, I only have one appointment the following week so hopefully things will settle.
