Wish I could tell you that all this time that I didn’t blog, I was out doing something exciting, but the truth is, I really have not been doing much. Basically I have been watching movies and existing. With a month before the fall semester begins, I am not feeling much better, and I am afraid that I am not going to be ready for classes. I did however, decide that I will take the classes and hope for the best.
One good thing that happened over this long time since I have last blogged is that I was able to move one of my cats into my apartment. I took Pooh because he needs the most attention and he was not getting enough at Denny’s apartment. Not sure if he likes it here or not, but he is not having any physical problems that we were concerned about. Being that this place is smaller than Denny’s, I am thinking that he might be bored here, so today I went to the store and picked up some toys for him, in hopes that he will feel a bit better.
My parents are still both having health issues. Dad is wishing he would just die and that is making any possible progress difficult for him. We have started him with home health care and of course he is rejecting it. If Dad doesn’t start changing his attitude, than soon he might get his wish and if that happens, I fear that my brother will lose his mind. There is only one human being that I can honestly say that my brother loves and that is my father. When my sister died, we were all concerned about him and even thought about hospitalization for him. Thinking about it really gets to me.
Mom is doing alright with her lung cancer but she has had a persistent cough for well over two months now and they have no idea where it is coming from. They know that her lungs are clear and now they are looking into her throat. I part of me thinks that the cancer has made its way there. Of course her finances are not helping with her psyche. Mom likes to live a certain way and being that all her life she always lived above her means, she never saved for her retirement and now she is learning what it means to live on a budget. Even now she is living in an area that is too high priced for her and driving a car that is too expensive. Each time I talk to her she cries poverty and I so much want to tell her that if she would at least find a cheaper place to live and a least expensive car she could make do easily. I even tried in a subtle way and she would not listen to me. I know there is no way for me to be able to help her. What she did that pissed me off to the max was to write a letter to my father, asking him for financial help. What balls she must have. I mean they divorced back in ’79 and here she goes and has the gull to ask my father to send her money.
So other than I just mentioned, nothing much is going on with me, but I thought I would write to let you all know that. The picture above is of Pooh in his new basket. TTFN
