I need my sister. Its 9:45pm and I am finally eating something - cheese, crackers and vodka. That's a selection from several of the major food groups - dairy, grain and booze. I did buy these three food (?) items when I bought downtown Morales out of cleaning products.
Up at 4am - well, make that 3 to catch the 4am shuttle to catch the 5:30am plane. I arrived in Vieques in record time, but unfortunately my checked baggage didn't, so the publico driver I had secured just left my carry on sitting on the sidewalk and took someone else while I was talking to the baggage guys. Nice guys those drivers.
My bag should be on the next plane, arriving in ten minutes. OK, this gives me a chance to get some dog love from two recently uncaged Chessies and exchange a few pleasantries with their mother.
Once at Rosada I open every window that isn't stuck and turn on every fan. I have my work cut out for me and don't know where to begin, so I just walk around. I start a list of cleaning supplies. I can't put any of my clothing away because there's nothing to put it in, plus I need to clean. Its a Catch 22. So, I just pull things out and leave a mess. Unbelievably, the phone works!! This took an act of God and many phone calls and countless time on hold. All well worth it now!
There is activity next door - the girls with the Chessies that I met at the airport - crazy! From Las Vegas, Emily will be renting for 3 months with an option for longer.
After buying $100 worth of cleaning products, I lug my groceries up the hill (no car). I have an appointment with the local used car dealer in the morning so hopefully my days of dragging my cart around and looking like a bag lady will soon be over. At home I am again confused. At least I cleaned the fridge before I left. I pile my "products" on the "kitchen table" and let the scrubbing begin, starting with cabinets, which I empty, clean, sort and rearrange. Where did all of these ugly pictures and curtains come
from? I will leave the curtain and picture project for tomorrow as well.
The fan in the bedroom only has one speed - slow. We definitely need more ceiling fans. The electric cord hanging in the shower is scary. I can hear my neighbor talking in his sleep. I want my sister. I could use a good pants wetting laugh!
