Life goes on and another week started ! Opening the curtains my heart sank, outside it was exactly like my inside !
The next day I visited Rick, with my special permission as the residence was still closed because of our enemy n°1 the Corona virus ! Besides some nurses walking around I saw nobody all residents were in their room, doors closed. Rick seemed in a good mood and was happy to see me after one year (!!) I tried again to explain him how to handle the mobile and left it connected to the charger. I collected the dirty laundry, despite what they had said, it was not ready at all and I needed another bag. The poor personnel has a lot to do. I am not a hysterical person, I had gloves my mask and two vaccins and was not afraid of Covid infected laundry. What did I risk ? All symptoms like a flu nothing more, I stay a week at home and that's it. Anyway this year I really had nothing not a cold or a bronchitis ! It seems that the Covid vaccin keeps the colds away. I stayed a little hour and also called our son so that Rick could talk to him, but he doesn't like to speak on the phone and the conversation was rather short. I updated my son later in the evening.
Each time I went to the elevator I heard one "woof" or more coming from Adeline's apartment..
I remembered that she had told me that she dogsitted her daughter's dog for a week, so I stopped by to see the little monster who snarled at me like a big Rottweiler. The poor little thing had an awful past behind her, one year looked in a basement ! No wonder that she saw ennemies everywhere, but fortunately cats and dogs like me after a while and that was the same here. She started to sniff at my feet then my hands but didn't let me pet her. Next time it will be better. Indeed she followed me to my apartment and wanted to come in ! But I wanted to avoid a war between Rosie and Lena.
The not even a year old hearing aid of Rick doesn't serve anymore as he is unable to put it in his ears and worse he pulls it out. As it was very expensive I took it home before he broke it. I went to the shop were we bought it just next door, unfortunately they don't take it back so I will try to sell it online.
Besides these exciting things I just work on my computer there is always something to do. For some things I need technical help, and have to find one, because all women I know they know as much as I do or less. Somebody in our neighborhood meeting had proposed to help me, but forgotten to give me her telephone nr.
The residence will open again tomorrow all people had been tested negatif.
It's getting worse and worse here now the government will decide whether or not vaccination will be mandatory which causes strikes and a very bad ambiance, people become more and more aggressive.
My poor grandson celebrated his 11th birthday, with mum sick with the Covid she was tested positive despite the vaccins, therefore my son has to stay home and Toby couldn't celebrate his birthday with his friends. But he will do it later. In Amsterdam the rules have become worse too.
