Now Playing: Day 777-The Final Road To Survival
The heat is upon us again today! I can't wait for some cooler temperatures instead of it feeling like August outside. My head issues-Seizures/migraine/tremors are sure not enjoying the extreme temperatures either. At least the dark sheet that plays as a make shift curtain blocking the sun from the back of the house into the living room so far has been working! It now stays super dark so I am not awakened by sunlight or migraines/tremors. Now it takes around 15 minutes to set everything up blocking the windows from any sunlight before going to sleep. Its a routine but after awhile you get used to it.
They are now calling for rain starting tomorrow afternoon into late Tuesday. Now not only do we have a huge hole just sitting there on the side of the house but to make matters worse the foundation cracks have yet to be fixed. This could make for one HUGE basement FLOOD if either its not finished within the next 24 hours or if someone gets doesn't get plywood and plastic large enough to cover the entire area. To make matters worse the workers left huge mounds of dirt through out the yard. This of course was after there was hours spent the past week cleaning up weeds along the fence line which was a waste of time. My friend-Caregiver spent most of the day working outdoors just catching up on the last bit of landscaping and cutting the grass. He now has a Memorial Day filled with dirt removal from one end of the yard to another. WHOA! I "attempted" to clean the cars out later this afternoon which was going fairly well until the heat got the best of me. I am lucky for Gatorade and Pedialyte. Last thing I need is another trip to the hospital so it looks like the great outdoors will officially be off limits for this gal when the temperature exceeds over 83 degrees.
We have still been on the great house hunt with so far no luck in sight. We have lost track on how many properties we have called, emailed or drove by in hopes of finding a new home. People don't realize how hard it is finding a handicap accessible home. Either we find a place that "seems" ok until we see it or we run into homes that were far from being taken care of aka "DUMPS." So far within the past 24 hours I have had two calls regarding properties and sent out 15 emails. This is almost becoming a full time job that I should "NOT" be doing. With us just being a team of two add onto the equation Drano aka Hell-In-A-Jug day which was today. I had to postpone it yesterday due to stress however I couldn't push it off another day longer. Call this holiday weekend:
"MEMORIALDRANOTINI TIME!" We hope to find a new home soon seeing with the rain moving in the stress with this house isn't too far behind. AMEN.
