It was about 10 AM this morning when Helen came. I had been up for hours working on some model railroading projects. Helen barely said 5 words to me the whole time she was here. I am so sensitive and thought she was mad at me for some reason. I should have just asked her.
I called mom after Helen had left.
"Is something wrong with Helen?" I asked.
"Why?" mom then asked.
"She acted surly to me all morning," I replied.
"No, silly!" mom said. "It is not you. Helen and her husband are having terrible money problems right now. She borrowed $40 from me today."
I hated to hear Helen was having problems, but I sighed with relief that it wasn't about me.
I managed to walk again this morning. Only one mile, but I plan to add to the mileage as I go.
Brace yourselves! We have a 60 percent chance of snow tomorrow night and Sunday. I am already getting excited.
