    So, this isn't likely to be as bad as I think - and it may not happen at all. But I'm really scared right now. I haven't had the help with the housework that I'd been relying on (and paying for) in three months and I can't do the heavy lifting. I tried but I couldn't get the help I needed. That kept me from getting the plumber out here - again - and while I may can handle the cleaning, the plumbing won't be okay by Wednesday when the friends who I housesit for will be coming down for a mutual friend's funeral.

    I'm not going to be able to go to the service - which I will be upset about later.

    I have no idea if they will stop in or not - maybe not. But still. I was planning on getting the plumber in next month - I don't know about next week.

    I'm still hoping - and working toward - being able to buy this house in six months or so (credit is looking good, so it's doable, I think) and I don't want to screw that up.

    Anyway, God is still God and just writing this out helps me calm down. I'm such a chicken - and so danged useless.

      If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

                So, I got help this morning. They are teenagers.

                Seriously, I know I wasn't anything close to perfect but I don't think I'd have survived being this ... slow...

                But it's still help! God is soooo good!

                  Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

                      Thanks everyone.

                      Everything is fine - nothing happened. I wasn't able to go to the funeral - I really was sick. Probably for the best - I can't stand for long periods and I don't walk well so a graveside service - I'm going to be more trouble than I'm worth at a time when I want to help.

                      Anyway, thanks, everyone.
