The neighborhood here is dead as a doornail. Only one other person is here on this section of the road. That's the guy who everyone hates and avoids like the plague. However, since he got out of prison for beating up his girlfriend 2 yrs ago, he's been quiet and seldom seen. He comes out of the back door, gets in his pickup truck, and is gone for the day. It's lonelier here than it was up in TN where I lived near the lake.
We're having issues with the house cleaner now because of her ill husband. She can't help this of course. People get sick. She's constantly taking him to Dr's appointments and can't come to clean the house. or for tests or Xrays and more. They're not sure what's wrong with him other than fibromyalgia and now depression. She's missing a lot of work. We can't find anyone to come out here to the forest to work either. You would think monsters live out here in the pine woods. The one-woman the agency found suffered a horrible cat allergy. We have 3 cats in the house. There is always some reason we can't get someone to take the job. My son and Jane are not thrilled about cleaning the house. No aids/companions are available either.
