Starting another week

January 25th, 2010 at 10:50 am

This time I have to work five days, not four!

I had a pretty relaxing weekend. I didn't do any work except my laundry (which isn't all that easy when you're on a walker!) But I did it. I also watched movies and read and played computer games.

I am spending very little so far this month. But on Wednesday, I have to go to the doctor (who is almost an hour away). I am thinking very seriously about driving myself. The only thing holding me back from driving now is waiting for my handicapped placard. But I know I can park at the doctor's pretty close to the door without a placard. And I can walk now, with the aid of my walker. However, if I do drive myself, I will have to get some gas, and I'm not sure how easy that will be.

I also need to get some groceries, another thing that is not easy. Yet I hate to continue to ask for help, especially when by all appearances I am getting around better. And I just hate to ask for help, anyway.

I'll be glad when Spring comes and this is all over.

    Good luck! I'm sure your kids want to help, if you need it. You'll be doing much better soon.

    Gas stations are supposed to provide assistance to disabled customers. Usually you blow your hirn three times and they will come out to assist you.

    I don't know about all grocery stores, but mine has motorized chairs for the disabled that you can borrow while you are shopping in the store. Another idea would be to pay a friend or family member to do your shopping for you. You might not get the best deals, but you wouldn't be tiring yourself out going all around the stores.
