The VNA schedulers in their infinite wisdom, filed me as "Out of Town" a week early, leaving me with no aide to be my legs and run around doing the things I need done before leaving. Oh joy! After throwing a Class A shitfit at them, I left a message on my RN's voicemail; perhaps I'll get someone before I leave, perhaps not. Just another tasty treat to make my life so special.
Fortunately, Nancy was here and kept a cool head as I raged at the stupidity. Because of her even Buddhist nature, I filed a temporary change of address with the good ol' USPS online and dealt with Comcast close to sanely. Had I been alone in the house, I'm pretty sure I'd still be calling, cursing, yelling at people and getting nowhere. Instead, I got a sweetheart at Comcast named Sandy (in Nashua, NH) who bent over backwards in doing everything possible to help me. She is a credit to Comcast, and the human race in general. Thank you, Sandy (hey Comcast, are you reading this? I hope so- give her a raise!).
Things will get done. Not as I like, the way I'd planned, nor in my schedule of when and how, but they will get done. Breathe deeply...
