Correction.....

My last post should have said 3 out of 6 ain't bad. ETK and Squidly weren't in the picture. Not a complete family pic w/o them!

Now...on to the parentals....
Dad seemed in better mental form today. He did play 9 holes of golf, bless his heart. It was 105 again today. Geez-o-pete! He was a bit wobbly when I picked him up, but after a shower and lunch he perked back up. No 'fog' today.

Sisterlittle gets teary whenever she reads stuff about Daddy I think. She doesn't want me to post about it either I think. My phone reception wasn't very good when I talked to her today so I couldn't hear everything she was saying. But, the reason I initially started this blog was to post about my 'new' life with the parents. It really does help when I put it all down. I think it allows me to examine everything better and get some perspective. So, as unpleasant as some topics may be, this is my therapy for now.
This is by far, the hardest thing I've ever done in my life! Without exception! Possibly the most rewarding also. And challenging and tiring and boring and lonely. There's lots of 'lonely' times believe it or not. I have alot of adjectives I could use but I'm sure you get my drift.

I think I'll call #1 son's 'X' and see if the youngins can come over this Saturday for a swim and stuff. I miss those little buggers and need to recharge my battery. Cross your fingers the X says it's OK.

Aww, a visit from the grankiddos would be fun. :)

I am glad you can use this blog as an outlet for your daily activities. It is mentally & physically exhausting being a caretaker. Make sure you keep taking care of you!!! That tends to be a big issue with caretakers.

I haven't figured out HOW to take care of myself in this situation. Lovee and Sisterlittle are fabulous for letting me 'vent' to them..for now that seems to help a bit.
