I've spent the past months trying to find/create joy in my new place. Now, all I have again is grief. No little girls allowed over. I'm so damn crippled by the damage to my hip that most movement hurts excruciatingly. Think ice picks jabbing into the joint. I'm only mobile in a wheelchair, and I can't move around in the yard, because the wheelchair sinks in the mole mounds. Now, after a summer of planting things rescued and new, it has gotten very cold, very quickly. For those of you untutored in plant chemistry, this means that many plants did not have enough warning, and time, to convert starches to sugars, also known as antifreeze. It is VERY likely that I have lost kiwis, Paulownia, elderberry, just for starters. I can't sleep with the window open, as the window froze open. How do I get actual pain relief from my doctor?

|Front porch (and yes, D did walk out the open door you see, at night, forgetting that there was no longer a porch there. Damage only to his dignity.)|

After all my pleasure back out in my garden, back on my own land, planting things, mulching things, watching my daffodils bloom, I am committing to attempting to sell my place, and buy a place near the house my daughter and granddaughter share with friends. Grief.
