Weekend Recap

Father's Day - 2012.

Nice quiet day.  Husband rested for the most part.  Kids called.  Confused for most of the day.  I made him his special dinner.  He ate everything.  I've noticed his clothes are getting too big for him.  Shirts hang on him.  Pants fall off of him.  I have to get him new clothes.  Have to put that in the budget and see what happens.

At least there were no sudden outbursts of anger.  Man, I don't like that.  I have to keep my cool when it does happen.

At the end of the day he thanked me for a lovely Father's Day and all I do for him.  I was pleasantly surprised.  He also told me how much he appreciates me.  Another surprise.  He was sincere.

I cannot believe how hot it's been.  Wish it would let up some.  Have not got a key for the pool.  Will try to get one tomorrow.  Every time I go the mailbox, I see people in that wonderful pool.  Makes me want to break in the area and jump in.

All in all, the weekend was OK.  Talked to my mom yesterday.  She's doing OK.  A little confused, but, OK.  She lives with my sister now.  I know how hard that has been on my sister.  I think of my sister often.  She has a lot on her plate with mom.  My mother can be a handful at times.  I know, I lived and cared for her myself for 5 1/2 years.  As much as I love my mother, she can even piss off a good humor man.  Trust me, been there, done that.  But, she's still my mother and I love her.  A lot.

I am getting anxious for our appointment with Dr A the end of July.  There has been such an increase of this disease,  Dr A may be shocked.  Or, will he?  Anyway, at least I'll find out where we are at, stage wise.

Our friend from church is coming today to look at husband's Scooter Chair.  Want to get it fixed so husband can get out of the house and "cruise" around the neighborhood.  He needs the fresh air, even if it is hot.  We can go early in the morning.

No big news, no big anything.  Don't know if we've reached a plateau and are holding steady with this monster, but, for now, I'll take it.

But, I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop.

  1. Glad his day went well. So good that once in awhile he can tell you that he appreciates you.
    Sorry, had to laugh about your mom......I have one like that.
    Hope you get that pool key. That would be so nice for you.
    Someone at your church may have some nice clothes that might fit your husband.
    My father would eat like a horse and he kept loosing weight. It's hard to understand.
