It's getting harder and harder to keep my online commitments. I'm somewhat ready to have the new beds delivered, but it's been almost a month and they've not yet called with a delivery date. Meanwhile, I've had to keep one room I normally store things in clear so my bed can be moved into it and the bed currently in the space where my old bed is going moved out. I'll have to call again, but I won't have time to have the beds delivered until after Wednesday.
Why? Because an appraiser is visiting our Templeton house late Wednesday afternoon and it needs a lot of work only I can do before then. That, again, means moving stuff somewhere, and I don't yet know where somewhere will be. My husband had forgotten that one upstairs bedroom lacks half a carpet. We had to cut that out in 2009 when we had to treat the floor for termites. We still wound up having to tent the house, but repairs to the rest of the room still haven't been finished. To complicate matters, there is still a lot of furniture and many boxes of books in that room I still have to list for donation before I can get rid of them, and all that would have to be moved before someone could install carpet. I suppose it could all be carried out to the balcony during carpet installation and moved back in, but I would almost bet that's the day our rainy season would start.
Meanwhile, we have to arrange to have two beds taken away somewhere when the new ones are delivered and set up. Maybe it's not too late to have the mattress factory take the old ones. I want everything taken care of before I have my first cataract removed on October 28. I will have to rest after that on my new bed.
It doesn't look like I'll get much rest before that. I should be dealing with all the editbots HubPages decided to install on our hubs. I should also be writing ahead and scheduling my City Daily Blog posts for the days preceding and following surgery, since I don't know how soon I've be back at the computer. I'm having my other eye done on November 11. Looks like I'll have to give up reading fiction until all is done.
Between now and my surgery I also have two other medical appointments and an overnight trip to Los Angeles for a church reunion. Maybe we'll even be gone two nights. Meanwhile, all but one of my own blogs is suffering from my neglect. I'm doing almost no social networking except trying to keep my Facebook blog page current and participate in two of my Facebook writing groups. This is one year I'm looking forward to the arrival of December.
