Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019

Last English class until fall! It was exhausting trying to help a Congolese man add some vocabulary to his repertoire! I must remember in future to write down the words with which we struggle so he can remember them better. De-cluttered energy! I was too tired to go foraging but we shan't go hungry!

Tripped to Mill yesterday and picked up a few useful things; I am loathe to put anything in my new car! I shall get over this in a year or two! Will put some construction grade plastic bags in the boot for emergencies. Returned books to library down there.

R sorted excess T-shirts - some to trash! (Rags) All his clothes are put away! Today I will finish mine, although "my" bureau is still in his office. The BR has his bureau and the blonde oak roll top - I put some clothes in the drawers of that. May put the rest into the big bureau in the sewing room. It seems more efficient to keep his in the BR so he will know where they are and be more amenable to changing appropriately. And I can put things back in and close the drawers he left open!

Spent 35 min on phone sorting out why I do not get e-bills from CT. I hope! Had a nice customer service man who listened and agreed with my comments about the paucity of communication! "How on earth does anyone...???" Sometimes IT people are not the best communicators; clearly their brains are not the same as us mere mortals.

Black bean soup made. R had to fend for himself last night as I was out like a light by 10 pm and he was home "before midnight". The soup would have been better than... I have no idea what he ate! Goal: always have soup in frig!

Red Flag: A man who was working on a friend's home called "too tired to come today". At 9 am, he had the wit to phone for ambulance and by 11 am he had a stent installed - 100% blockage... plus a couple others around 60%. Makes me think/wonder/be aware.
