There are times I'd like to be a pre-teen again so I could just go play and the only responsibilities I'd have was to make sure my room was clean, help with the dishes and make sure I was home when the street lights came on.
Today was one of those days. Some of you know dad had cataract surgery the other day. And some of you know he's been a cantankerous geezer about using his eye drops and following what the doctor told him not to do. What none of you know is that today I had to yell at him and the only reason I felt bad was because I didn't feel bad about yelling at him.
I told him that if he went blind from not following what the doctor told him, I would have to put him in a home because I couldn't take care of him. Not sure if that's really true or not, but it was the only way I could get through to him.
He complains that all he does all day is take pills, use his inhalers and now keep putting eye drops in. What the heck else does he have to do??? All he does is sit in his chair all day and watch t.v. unless I get him out for a walk.
Then there's our Niagara Falls trip coming up at the end of May. I'm so excited I'm wishing my life away wanting it to be here now. I've been there on Google Earth many times already and almost feel like I know the entire neighborhood. :) I can't wait to go and take the tour on the boat and such. Is it the end of May yet? :)
Okay, now for my "feel like I'm getting too lazy" phase. Yep, it hits me now and then and I can't shake it and I never seem to do anything about it. I know there are so many things I've been very lax on lately, but do I just "do it" and get it over with? No, I just think about them and forget it till the next time I think about them and forget it. I have some paper work I need to get caught up, still waiting. It took me 2 days to fold towels and sheet and they're still downstairs in the baskets waiting to be brought up and put away. There are dandelions in my cacti bed blooming their pretty yellow heads off just daring me to rip them out by the roots. The carpets need cleaned, the windows need washed, and the rest of the closets need going through. Yep, still thinking about it.
Thanks for listening. HUGS!
