November 28, 2018, Prescott-
It was certainly a whirlwind birthday, after I got off work. The crew gave me a lovely fruit tart, which I cut in fours and shared with them. There were plenty of balloons with which the kids enjoyed playing, when we were not busy with tasks at hand. Otherwise, it was a fairly peaceful day, in the room.
Afterwards, I set myself towards getting my new phone set up. Other than getting the SIM card installed, though, it was a no-go. T-Mobile has too many hoops through which to jump, for someone like me to go DIY. I may be able to still set the phone up online, once I locate certain passwords and PINS; otherwise, it’ll wait until Sunday, when I will be in Phoenix for other business.
It was far more rewarding to visit the mother of a local friend, in hospital. A little pine plant and a Christmas healing card seemed to make her very happy. I spent about an hour with mother and daughter, before the evening nurse visit signaled it was time for me to head out.
Once back home, after dinner and a brief session on Planet Fitness massage equipment, I spent a while on the phone with Aram. Looks like the Korea visit, next March, is moving full speed ahead, in terms of my hosts’ plans for the week. Passport is still in progress, but I think that’ll be resolved by mid-December.
More readily will be the trip to Washington, to pay last respects to my mother-in-law, as her interment will be on December 11. So, without further ado, I will be making travel arrangements, tomorrow and Friday.
Besides the above, 2019 is looming as a year without a full-on agenda. I know, from past experience, that this will change. My small universe abhors a vacuum, as much as does the larger one. I am just glad to wake each morning, go and take care of tasks at hand and be loving to those who cross my path, whether that love gets reciprocated or not. I still remain wary of those whose rage seems to eclipse whatever good qualities they have, but we take some people one step at a time. Most everyone else, though, treat me like royalty and they get the same back.
Now, on to the blessings of the last two days of November and of 2018’s closing month.
