Big relief

Had horrible insomnia last night because I was worried about calling about the car loan today. My big worry was that it had already gone to repossession. But everything was all right, I paid the back due and got it up to date, and the woman in Collections was very understanding and helpful, and all is well in regards to that.

Then I went back to bed for a couple of hours after that.

After I got up I called my Union legal service to see if they could help me out, but they couldn't. They did give me the advice to get a power of attorney, though which is also advice I've gotten from others, so I will look into it.

Last night I got an answer from social security to my e-mail. But it was just a form letter saying I should call and speak to an agent, so I tried calling but gave up. It's geared for asking questions for yourself, not others.

Then I called the Medicaid guy at the rehab. Miracle of miracles, he said he was going to work with Oldest Brother to get him applied for disability. So we'll see how that works out. I've heard it's an awful process, that you always get rejected the first time you apply, and some people have to apply three times before they get on, but he's so obviously disabled that I'm hoping it'll be quick.

The kid called, she was having a bad day. Enough said.

Igot a call from the rehab, he's been transferred to another room because he finished the initial 14 day quarantine. I hope that'll make a difference in his therapy.

O called John and talked briefly. We said I'd call back at 9:30 to talk about them storing his car in their driveway.

Then I Skyped the FWiB, and that was very nice, something for me, not work to be done.

After that I flaked out in the bedroom, until I remembered about my laundry. So I pulled on some clothes. The kid called again, and I talked to her whole I got dressed and went and got the laundry. While we were talking, [personal profile] mashfanficchick called. I called zer back after I got the laundry home. Ot was about suggestions for helping Oldest Brother. The big thing was Power of Attorney.

I called back John and Denise and talked with them about Oldest Brother's car, I'm mailing them the key tomorrow.

Then I called Oldest Brother for the third time in the day, and talked a bit.

And then it was time to feed the pets, and here I am.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. My cousins.

3. Other friends.

4. The Medicaid officer willing to work with Oldest Brother.

5. Clean laundry.

6. Bed soon.
