Early in the week, I decided to write about being part of the solution as I am so into all the problems that I see surrounding me everywhere. But I regret to say that I don’t know how yet. Well, sort of. But, first, I want to take a look at what I see as problems in my little corner of the universe. Hey, just go with it. At least these won’t be YOUR problems. And I am not going into the political arena, even though I am heartsick about a LOT of political matters that are NOT going my way. And, I am speaking out, and today I VOTED!
But this week has been rough. Workers who were supposed to finish my balcony with the cat netting stayed most of the day on Friday – 3 guys who kept questioning what each other was doing. Plus, the netting ruins my view of the sky. But I choose Missy over sky, so black cat netting it is. And they had to “finish up” on Monday. ALL DAY!!! And two windows. 3 guys working by the hour. Ouch.
And, I got bad news from Debby about her Bob (going into Hospice), Becky (broke her ankle in 4 places); Blair (running injury, requiring surgery); Jack (needs a caregiver); Leonard (still finding out); and fires and my kids (unknown). And more. And, something happened to me on Wednesday that made me get worse. And, the virus is spreading. And, my vertigo is worse. Getting to see a doctor takes FOREVER. I am walking too much. And it turned very cold and rainy without heat in the building yet.
SO, how can I be part of the solution?
I changed the cat litter when I was sore from walking. Haha. I asked the neighbor to take my garbage to the elevator. She offered to take it downstairs. A French friend (Elizabeth) took me in her car to lunch at a gorgeous private Sports Club,
I don’t know yet. Give me some time to think about it.
Last night I saw a program about new challenges facing today’s teachers. I have two daughter-in-law’s who are teachers. He said you don’t ask what he/she wants to be when he/she grows up. You ask what problem she/he wants to solve (anything at all); then how does she/he think the problem could be solved; then what does she/he have to learn to solve it. Then DO IT.
