Fiscal fast 30-31; closing out January
Still requiring narcotics, my mobility is limited. I am camping out in my recliner with 3 extra pillows to support my lower back, neck and right arm. Should I need to be left alone, my recliner is positioned down, a folding chair is placed at the foot end like an ottoman, so that I can get up for the bathroom, if needed yet I am still able to recline, or sit propped up with my legs up; the compression stockings come off today. Front door is unlocked so if I had to call my friend just down the street, she can get in yo help me, if needed. I have a dumbwaiter table to my left, with all my necessities and there is a tv tray next to that for my laptop. Kids are stepping up-DD is attending to meals; thankfully, we have my frozen assets that we have been taking advantage of; so far we've had studded shells, pate chinois-a French Canadian sheppard's pie, meat stuffed shells. Frozen or canned vegetables and a salad on the side. It's vital that we continue to eat heathfully. DD and college boy are helping with trash/recycling, laundry. One kidlet is already known as floor boy-he is to vacuum after school today. Daily, there are still tasks that must be managed.
Bills paid as they come in, only shopping this week since surgery was a gallon of milk. Kids already put on notice that our grocery list will grow these next 2 months while actual outlaying of cash will be severely limited.
