Another busy day. I had to work today. I kept wishing I were home because there is still so much to do before tomorrow.
It was just Angela and I there at the beginning of the day. Clarissa came in later. At least it wasn't too busy.
I was on the front desk just 10 minutes before lunch when I got a phone call from Joe. He had heard the recycling bucket blowing down the street. It was really windy today. So he took his walker and went after it. But he is still dizzy and he fell three times -- twice in the street and once on the sidewalk. One time one of the neighbors helped him up. The last two times two of the teens on the street helped him. They also grabbed the can and put it in the back yard. They helped him into the house and then he called me and asked if I could come home and help him. I told him it was almost my lunch time and to hang in there I would be home as soon as I could. And not to move!
When I got home I got him upstairs and into bed. I cleaned up his bloody knees and arms. He has bruises all over and a lump on his head. He looks like I beat him up. But I didn't. Honest! I made him a sandwich for lunch, grabbed a sandwich for me (which I ate in the car on the way back to work), and made him promise to stay put until I got home this afternoon. Believe me, he didn't want to go anywhere. Please pray for Joe. He so wants to go to church and then out to dinner tomorrow.
After work I stopped off at Wawa and got us snacks, made sure Joe was OK, and headed off to Choir practice. Tonight was our last practice before the big day tomorrow. We finally got the ending down and after singing the anthem several times it sounded perfect. It is really wonderful. I would never have believed that first night that we could get so good so fast! I am hoping to tape it tomorrow. I'll see if I can get someone to do that for me. So this is the first of the many changes happening at church -- the new Hope Philly Choir.
It is almost midnight and I still have wash and dishes and cleaning and baking and... to do before I can go to bed. I can put some of it off, but I need the laundry for tomorrow. So I am going to get off of here and wish you all a Happy Easter!
