Laundry For The Homeless, and 3 Falls In The Yard

Went for wash day with the homeless dudes, only one showed up to do laundry, and one to visit, have to admit, a little disappointed! Way too many lunches as well, I think I had like 20. Was able to get a few people to eat with me, they told me they didn't need them, just hated to see them go to waste. Also saw the worst example of parenting I've ever seen. Young couple came in, he had to go someplace, she said well I ain't watchin him, and she didn't! Twice I kind of herded him inside, 2 years old, mom said not to worry, he pretty much can take care of himself. Hopefully next week will have more guys show, if not may have to rethink the every week schedule.

Fell yesterday, actually it was like 3 times, all back related. Was doing a couple of things out in the yard, bent down for my cane, and boom, boom, boom, out go the lights! It's like somebody flips a switch and all control goes out, I collapse like all my bones dissolved. Got almost to my feet and it happened again, then again getting into the pool. I survived it, but I hurt my knee, got it pinned under me when I went down, hoping it feels better tomorrow. This is getting old, I want to use my get out of jail free card, with whom do I speak?

That is terrible for the 2 year old to have a Mom with that attitude. Watch out for those falls, try to have things (walker maybe) that keeps you from falling....It hurts when you fall, etc...

Sounds like you need a break from those falls. Would a walker help you? I'm still so impressed with your work for the homeless.

Did I just read you fell by the pool? I hope you weren't out there by yourself! But I'm sure you know that already! Sorry for being such a party pooper. It seems to be in my nature!

Thanks to all, this was not in the brochure, I would like to talk to a manager for a full refund!
