AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
Not much going on around the house this week. We are both trying to recover from belligerent colds. Good thing we have a good stock of nose tissues. The highlight of the week was a trip to the See Off collection center on Monday. I couldn’t let it collect any longer. It was 3:45 pm and all I had was a $20 bill. It was the only bill I had, and he couldn’t make change. Sooo I said how many tickets do I get for $20? I have now had plenty of tickets, but he was then able to give me change. There was no way I was taking garbage back home again if there was a way. Whew.
Before the pandemic, I hadn’t had a cold or flu since before leaving Illinois in 1995. Things have changed. Advanced middle-age doesn’t help either. Ha!
