Waiting Game

December 22nd, 2022 at 04:41 pm

I've done everything I can, and now I'm just waiting for the storm to hit. This morning I drove my car to the hospital and parked in their garage. I can leave it there till the morning of the 26th. I walked home, picking up three books from Little Libraries on the way. It is still mild. 

Unfortunately, I fell this morning -- tripped over a box -- and I landed hard. I can tell I didn't break or sprain anything, but I'm going to have some bruises and a lot of discomfort, I think. At least I don't have to go anywhere.

The only thing to worry about now is whether the power will stay on. They did an upgrade on the electrical system this fall, so I'm hopeful.

I did some tinkering with next year's budget, and it looks like the raise in Social Security will a little more than offset the increases in assessment fees and insurance. If I can continue my $100 a month limit on groceries, I should be okay.

    Oh no, I’m sorry that you fell. At least it wasn’t a serious injury. Hopefully, you won’t be in too much discomfort. I also hope you don’t lose power. That’s nice that you were able to park your car at the library. You always plan so well ahead. Sounds like you’ve done everything you can do. Now it’s time to relax & enjoy some reading.

    I hope you are feeling ok after that fall! The storm is moving its way to my area on the east coast. The winds are really picking up and I am praying I don't lose power. I have soooooo much cooking to do for tomorrow. Take care CB!
