What do I do tonight??? The baseball Colorado Rockies’ game with/at Washington (DC) has been postponed because of weather … the Rockies’ games are my first choice for evening television. So … I optioned to return to my BLOG to share this most uninteresting time of my day!!! I can see on the patio below my window a beautiful friend … Katherine with a “K” — name spelled same as mine … sitting with her husband … second … just enjoying the evening. “Katherine with a “K” is 99 years old. She is just lovely … her husband is 70-something … I think.
What to I do these next few years? My hip has healed so well … my eye surgery is this August. I am staying in the apartment Pete and I shared until that is all over. Am I going to do a left knee replacement? I don’t know … as long as I might do some surgery, I will stay here … so I can have their staff help me. But … what if I get in reasonably good shape? I know I have been through this argument/discussion before … I am closer to it now. Tomorrow afternoon Craig and I are going to a relatively new Assisted Living place ... just to see it. The only other place I really know is the one Pete and I stayed in before this one … and that is certainly not a good comparison. Four of our bridge players from here have moved to the one we are going to see.
Do I want another assisted living??? I know Craig and I both realize the merits of being “home” if I need medical help!!! But … I really feel now … right now … that I am morphing into someone who needs assisted living. The population here is probably 90 % in need of help … right now that is bothering me. I would love a good dinner conversation … There is sometimes a good conversation about the “food” but I really do not remember any other topic that gave me a few comments that followed each other!!! So … do I choose an independent living arrangement … basically a condo where some minimal services are included. I think I could handle an independent living arrangement associated with this complex … because I already know people there. I do not want to shop for my food … nor fix my food!!! I like so much the idea of getting to know even better the people who live in the independent part of this complex. But … no medical services are provided in the independent part of this complex. What do I do?
I am in the same apartment Pete and I were in … what was really his room is really not used. I like the two bedrooms and my “huge” living room. I do not want to move. Would I take a two bedroom apartment somewhere else??? Would I take a one bedroom apartment? With a big living room??? Craig and I will look at an Assisted Living / Independent complex tomorrow … it is good to get ideas!
