Hello everyone, you're still stuck with me it appears. I have a little philosophy about blogging that keeps me away from the game: if I don't have the time to read yours, I don't write because I wouldn't expect you to read mine.
That, of course puts me out of touch a lot longer than I like to be.
I hope you're all well and life's treating you just as well.
So much going on in my end of the world, mostly routine stuff, nothing special, just a lot of it, ya know?
My eyes are shot. I went to an Optometry place on Friday for further confirmation of total systems failures. I found out I have a pretty nice vision care plan. It took care of everything with a $40 co-pay all around. Only thing is, the optometry place has to send my frames to the vision plan people, 'cause they have to make the glasses. And the only other thing is that it will take two weeks. So I'll continue bumping into walls, driving off cliffs, etc. till then, k?
I'm very involved in taking care of Pop as his condition gets a little tougher on him (cause I suck like that, ya know) But, Pop is hanging tough still. His care is a lot more demanding, as is he, these days, and that means a lot of driving, sitting in waiting rooms. His tolerance for foods has improved some, which means he can eat something other than rice and toast, so it's all good. I made him a brisket, a grilled cheese and a roast chicken so far, and no, er, fallout so to speak. I'm tellin' ya, as a caretaker, wow, I rock, if I must say so myself. I actually got a bedsore to heal completely (receiving kudos from the wound care specialist, by the way!)
And I've plunged head-long into a new career. It's one that's more adapted to our life situation, and allows me a little leeway with my hours. Totally not what I'd thought I'd be doing at this stage in my life, but, one never knows.
Thank you to all of you who expressed concern as to my well-being. That was nice to hear/read. Guess I can't suck all that bad, ya know, if people who really do know me still come around despite that. It's always nice to know that people who aren't afraid to stand behind their convictions think enough of me to worry about me :)
Love ya all.
