When I took mom to see her SIL today I forgot that having lunch with a 98 yr old, 88 yr old and my cousins in their mid 70's. They reminded me that I was the baby of the group. That is totally a weird feeling for me but it was fun. I'm still ... Read more

Today looked like what I imagine the new normal will look like. We haven't had many of these in the past several weeks but this I could handle. I was up at a decent time instead of sleeping until noon and I had some breakfast, made my bed, thr... Read more

I napped on and off last night but my misfit never registered any sleep. There is a whole list of reasons. My mind was busy thinking about all the projects I needed to work on, I was having night sweats along with restless legs. I tried all ... Read more

I either laid on the couch or slept in my recliner all day today. I managed to wash and dry one load of clothes, put away part of the dishwasher and eat most of the leftovers in the frig. I really had no energy and my cough was worse than it h... Read more

Letting the dog in and out whenever he asked. That's it. Almost anything else seemed to cause coughing and wheezing so I didn't do much of it. I slept, I ate soup, I drank water, OJ, and pop. And to top it all off I watched TV. Hopefu... Read more

Another one of those days when I just can't seem to stick to any one thing. My brother called last night and asked if next time I was in town I'd stop and get mom a 6 pack of beer. Well I don't drink so a trip to the liquor store was interesti... Read more

I did run into town to get my mom her little grocery list. You couldn't really see more than 30 ft. in front of you. We have such a bad fog today and drizzle to go with it. So I did not drive over to the fabric store I just brought my moody s... Read more

With dad's memorial service last Fri. and mom being in the hospital this week it sure has felt like I don't have any control over much of anything. My mind is just spinning like a record without putting the needle down and my eating is terrible... Read more
