Curmudgeon, home again, home again, lickety splish...

Okay! Last post here and I'll start another thread...

Previous thread here

Tom is HOME! And got safely into the house (plastic bag around his cast, cat in the cellar) despite the general dampness. At least it wasn't actively raining when we got here.

Took a little maneuvering, but, despite slippery steps and deck (geez, isn't where this all started seven weeks ago?!?) he's in the house and only slightly winded.

Rufus is vacuum cleaning the wheelchair...walker...rollator...and more or less ignoring Tom. I'm sure Tom will have two cats fighting over him tonight.

It's GREAT to have Tom home. That being said, It's ony 7:45 a.m. and I already feel a bit run ragged.

I've stolen some time to just sit in bed and read with the cats, but I've got too many things still crashing about in my brain. The reading is interrupted by list making and bringing stuff to Tom.

He's needing to familiarize himself with what I have in freezer and larder. We just decided on dinner. And in a few minutes we'll cooperate on breakfast -- he'll toast the English muffins and I'll make the scrambled eggs with cream cheese.

Before I go out on a round of errands, I need to find some smaller boxes for the books I'm dropping off for the library sale. Then off to pick up some of his Rxs, drop those books off and pick up a few items at the other grocery store. And, most importantly, stop at Radio Shack and see about a pair of walkie-talkies or something so Tom and I can communicate between upstairs and downstairs.

After I get home, the project is to rearrange EVERYTHING in the room with the computer so he can get himself and his wheelchair in here. And that project actually starts outside the door. I'm certain that every box, etc. will be moved at least twice...

Back from errands...but, before I left, I took a nap. (At nine o'clock in the morning! After a decent night's sleep!) I'm still very very tired, but a lot has been accomplished. (I hate to think of how I'd feel without that nap!)

Walkie-talkies achieved, too, very economically. Spent half again as much on AAA batteries, as this is the model that doesn't come with rechargables. This should save a lot of running up and down stairs. (ME running up and down stairs...)

Still have to open up an avenue to the computer for Tom...but I've got all afternoon to do that.

Walkie-talkie situation not exactly taken care of. Tomorrow on my way to work (or maybe on my way home) I have to stop at Radio Shack and see what go accidently turned on on Tom's unit that it makes static for no apparent reason. I pulled the batteries out of it to get it to stop.

But because of it, Tom interrupted my already several times interrupted nap. It's okay, but, well, I'm still too tired to clear out the stuff I have to for Tom to access the computer.

I just reassessed the situation and I can't do anything until I can do it all -- things have to be moved (and then they'll be majorly in the way), things on the bottom have to be REmoved, then those things that were moved have to be stacked in a better place. Oh, and the stuff behind the door has to go somewhere else, too, and I don't know where...

Meanwhile, Tom can't get to the computer.

I need to go call my mother.

But the good news is the sun finally came out while I was napping!

Just a report on Tom's computer use -- I managed on Saturday to clear a wheelchair avenue to the computer, but Tom found Sunday that he was unable, even enlarging the screen quite a bit, to read much. And, as he kept losing sight of the cursor, he couldn't access his long- neglected emails...

Not sure whether his vision has deteriorated or if it's a temporary condition caused by not using the computer for two months.

Tomorrow I intend to do a major de-clutter of this room -- and also I can help Tom (especially if I can get the wheelchair and a chair for me at the computer) do what he's two months behind on.

Linn, try reversing the screen - make the background black and the letters white. At one time you used to be able to emulate the old black or amber screens - probably in the accessibility settings.

If you don't solve the walkie-talkie question by the end of the week, let me know. I think I have a pair in my eBay stash that works fine up to about 1/4 mile that I used when the kids were younger (they'd take one with them when they went to explore the woods across the road - half of the fun was reporting back to home base with the walkie talkie.)

As a note to those not familiar, the decluttering threads have been running for a while, as a general public service to all and sundry at Mudcat. ☺ Drop in and make yourself at home (that is, dig your home out from under to find it with the encouragement of the declutter crew! We're all at some stage of making paths through, rearranging, or planning for more efficient operations.)

Yeah, Tom regularly blows up the screen -- larger, not with a big bang. The light on dark doesn't work, but I changed some colors for him (months ago) and that helped him be able to see things. I also googled a simple fix for the cursor problem -- and learned how to make the pixels larger in the cursor so IT'S larger and he can see it.

Got the walkie-talkie problem ironed out. Turns out our neighbors up the hill got a similar pair of 2-ways over the weekend and I was picking up their transmissions just fine in our living room. After a bit of back and forthing, they changed the channel they were communicating on. I wonder if we'd have had this problem with a baby monitor...

Tom is sooooooo pleased to be home. Last night he got the best night's sleep he's gotten in over seven weeks. He's a little frustrated that cooking is not that easy for him from a wheelchair, so I'm doing most of the cooking for awhile and letting him do what he can. (Such as grate the romano for tomorrow's dinner...)

I'd love to loll in bed tomorrow morning, but the VNA will be back tomorrow morning to get the release form from Langdon Harbor that was on top of the pile of papers on my side of the table, but Tom couldn't see well enough to even look for. Ah well. The earlier (after I get back from paying the mortgage and other errands) I can start on the major demolition and reconstruction of that room the better. And, besides pulling two large pieces of cubic footage out of that room for deaccessioning, I'll be able to FIND the other boxed antique-ish things that we can call in a dealer to take a look at.

Now all I have to do is get another decent night's sleep tonight...

De-accessioned a deckload of flower pots and planters yesterday, but I have to call my friend who took them away and tell her she grabbed 4 planters under the deck that I wanted to keep.

After a couple of twitters earlier in the evening from the 2-way, I ended up removing the batteries at 2 a.m. because of a long spurt of intermittant twitters. I don't know if it's someone else on the same frequency or a close frequency. The directions are unreadable; fine if you already know what you're doing.

I think changing to another frequency that no one else might be near might work, but I have to figure out how to do it.

Would a baby monitor have been a better idea?

I'm back -- "Can you turn on the radio...turn up the heat...bring me my coffee..." and I loaded the dishes, washed the pan for breakfast, made my tea, started getting the trash... Picked up a wine glass to bring it downstairs and it shattered in my hand. What's with THAT?!?

The physical therapist from visiting nurses was just here on the preliminary visit -- Tom won't need him until his cast is changed next and he can put some weight on the ankle -- Tom's next appointment with Dr. Blitzer is May 25th.

Tomorrow will be fun, with Tom "practicing" getting in and out of the house TWICE. He has a morning appointment with his dentist to get a start on the new dentures. Then back home until we go out again mid-afternoon to go to the Press Room session. Won't know until we get there whether we'll need help getting Tom and the wheelchair into the Press Room or whether Tom can negotiate that step the way he does the step into the house.

Oh, just to make life interesting, I sprained my left thumb last night -- not doing ANYTHING that you'd think might stress it. After moving heavy things all day without incident (other than some heavy breathing), evidently picking up a book and getting into bed did me in. It's not horrible, just very very annoying. I've wrapped the joint with a couple band-aids to avoid bending it, but it reminds me of its existence whenever I, say, copy and paste. Ach!

Oddly enough I sprained my hand as well. But I like to think it was more dramatic. I was drilling 3-inch holes into the soffits for venting the attic space and the drill bitt hit something hard and kicked back. Fortunately I didn't fall from the ladder but life is exciting up there on the roof-line.

Hope you and Tom can make it to the Press Room a week from Saturday for the usual sea music session.

Oh, Tom's got everything (except being able to turn the radio) close at hand. I turn the radio on first thing in the morning. I work tomorrow 10-3, but that's certainly not a problem. A friend is coming over to see Tom at some point. (Monday, yesterday and today it was the VNA.) The coffee pot is the usual one. He can reach it, and the sink, the refrigerator/freezer, but can't reach (in the wheelchair) the controls on the stove. He can get the wheelchair in to be able to use the computer, but he's had vision problems the past few days.

My running around is normal -- Tom can't drive, so I have to do all the errands, take him to his medical appointments, etc.

Things are working out fine...getting in and out of the house, though, is a bit trickier. Do-able, but a bit of a project.
