Given that we will be in close quarters for the near future, Iâ€™m requesting that we become a community -- in this little hallway of six apartments. Iâ€™m hoping we can get to know one another, provide support and wellness checks as needed.
My name is Debilyn. (A few personal details were inserted here.) I do have a few friends in the area, the closest of whom is 15 minutes. Soâ€¦ given the environment right now, itâ€™s time to make new friends that are closer to me. I hope thatâ€™s you.
What I offer:
- I love to cook. And have a talent for making up new recipes. Most of them taste very yummy. A few do not, so you are fairly warned. :) If you are looking for some creative cooking ideas, ask me! And if you need someone to cook for you, ask me! As a person on a special diet, I understand any special needs you may have.
- Iâ€™m trained as a life coach. If you need a few minutes to chat to restore some sanity, Iâ€™ll be with you. Evenings and weekends are best for this, but I can make exceptions during weekdays as requested.
- Puzzles and games. I have a small collection of puzzles and games that Iâ€™m happy to loan out.
- Dog walking / pet sitting. I have been a pet mom for a really, really long time. If you are out and need someone to check in with your furry kids, Iâ€™m happy to do so. My cats are in need of a lot more attention right now, but also a useful reminder of the love we all deserve.
I am in a high-risk group for COVID-19. Iâ€™ve had asthma my entire life and normal flu/respiratory viruses usually turn into bronchitis for me. This virus is recoverable, but Iâ€™d prefer not to get it in the first place.
What I need:
-A community of support that is nearby.
-Wellness checks, especially if I get sick.
-Grocery shopping, if/when we get locked down.
You may text or email or knock on my door if youâ€™d like to participate in this hallway community. Ideally, weâ€™ll find a way for everyone to communicate and check in with each other. I have ideas how we could do this.
Thank you for being my neighbor! And I look forward to getting to know you.
