Spring Clean Up
|Our garden shed expels|
Wow! It's been a whole two weeks since I've posted. Must be spring. Busiest time of the year for your favorite blogger.
Yes folks, I'm entering my busy season. Not only am I a full-time caregiver now, I am also the full-time manager of Casa Tipton-Kelly. Heretofore Bill's strokes, Bill and I shared chores in the upkeep of our almost one acre (.97 acres) of verdant wildlife sanctuary that we call our backyard. Now that has all fallen up on me. Not that I am complaining, I expected to eventually have full responsibility for running our whole operation down here in lower slower Delaware.
Thank goodness my daily routine for caring for Bill has settled into a manageable routine. Every day I wash Bill's edema swollen legs with anti-bacterial soap. I help him dress. I fee him. I take him for rides. I shower loving attention on him. Not that there hasn't been a few "bumps" in the road but overall I'm managing. Every day I give thanks that I have Bill here at home to care for him and make his final days comfortable and enjoyable. And most important to let him know he is loved. The "bumps" incurred because of misunderstandings because of communication problems. Bill has profound hearing loss. His short term memory is just about shot. And his eyesight is getting worse (macular degeneration). Sometimes I get tired of constantly repeating myself because he doesn't hear and can't remember what I said. I think I've corrected that problem. It's all a learning curve folks.
Now that I have extra time I can finally clean out our garden shed from items that Bill thought was necessary to keep Casa Tipton-Kelly running smoothly. Do we need three weed-eaters? No. I hate them because they're gas operated and kill my back when I operate them. We even have a compressor taking up space in that shed. That goes. Question is do I attempt to sell it or call Just Junk and have it disposed of? We also have an extra screen door (in case we need it) in the basement. That goes. Believe it or not we also have THREE gas powered leaf blowers. They all go. I bought a new electric leaf blower that operates MUCH easier than those pull rope gas blowers that take multiple tries before they start.
I'm still trying to decide whether to advertise my garage cleanup items on our local NextDoor app or just bite the bullet and call Got Junk? I know how I'm going to rid of all those mouse poop pellets in our garden shed, with my new leaf blower. Of course I'll wear a mask whilst doing said chore.
