I have a lodger moving in today. I suppose it will seem a little daunting at first because I have lived alone for twenty plus years. I have never wanted anyone to live with me in my house, but now that I’m a young 80yr old I get lonely and a bit down at times. I don’t go out much now, I’m a stay-at-home person really. I used to enjoy going out and about but it’s no fun now because I had to give up my car for health and financial reasons.
I had often toyed with the idea of having someone to stay here as a lodger and/or as a companion but I have always talked myself out of it. That was until recently.
So I made a decision that it was time to make up my mind once and for all and do something about it, and offered a friend a place at my house. I had two empty rooms, one of which was already furnished as a bedroom so all she had to do was just move in.
Betsy, it’s not a Random Act of Kindness, because I thought about it for a full three minutes, so it was a premeditated act. I’m sure I made the right decision. . . .
