Ahh the good ol' days... where have they run off to? Every time I start trying to live in the moment and forget the past, I fall right back into melancholy nostalgia. Saturday has zoomed by, and I hate that. I wish Saturdays would last much longer than they do. Spending the night at Mom's last night to help with Dad, upon trying to get some things done around here since I have been home it's just nearly gone.
Dad being home isn't making things much better, and it's not the happy event that it should have been. He is still miserable, talking some weird stuff, you know like trying to tell you something but he calls things very odd names, seems to be talking out of his head here and there. Then since he is still on "Honey Consistency" foods because of his poor swallowing (thank you elephant tranquilizer), he doesn't like anything that you bring him. He keeps asking for "Kool-aid", or "Fruit Juice". Then when you bring him something, like the Orange Juice he loves so much, or the Lemonaid, he doesn't like it. He isn't eating a lot really, but he's having lots of problems because he still can't get up and down and walk on his own, and it's difficult to impossible to get him from his chair to the bathroom. So there you go... Not quite sure how it's going to go, it's not good... not good at all.
Like I said though, I try to write to relieve stress, and to relax myself most of the times, and rarely come to my blog with the intentions of fixating on depressing things, but I just have lately because of everything we've all been facing in my family, and that it is the holiday season. It sucks on many levels, but it being the holiday season takes the 'suckatude' up a notch for sure.
I was trying to straighten up earlier, and I did run across the instructional handbook for my old Commodore Vic 20 that I got for Christmas when I was a kid. To think, I was actually kinda programming in BASIC and didn't even know it at the time. I had a couple fun games on it too. Wow, what a blast from the past. Most of you won't even know what the heck this thing is. Ah how many a' childhood hour I wasted on this thing probably.
Honestly though, I would love to come out with something fun and entertaining to write about right now. What on earth could it be though? Dreams? I haven't really been remembering my dreams the last few days. I haven't had any very cool experiences, and I've been just trying to hang on and get through everything while still trying to keep up with my own work and deadlines.
The only thing I can think of right now to return me to my "Salad Days", is to watch a Bugs Bunny cartoon. I miss cartoons, I miss the good ol' days and I miss "My Daddy"... Bear with me, I hope to be back again one of these days. You know what I mean.
