I wish I were kidding
My mom was discharged on Friday. They really couldn’t do much more for her there anyway considering the whole facility is on lockdown because of a covid outbreak. Yay for home therapy?!?!
Before my mom could be released though, we had to build a couple of handicap ramps to get into the house. Of course this occurred over several of the coldest days of the year. FUN! I really shouldn’t complain though, because Einstein did most of the work on the ramp while I moved furniture and boxes around in the garage and house so that both were wheelchair accessible. (I got to defrost inside when I couldn’t handle the cold)
I went to a DAV meeting with my Dad. What the fuck is a DAV meeting? Good question! Is it sad that I still can’t really tell you even after going? The next one is on St. Patrick’s day and alcohol and a hotel room will be involved…that could be fun though….
I learned a new phrase “snow squall”. On the way home from the DAV meeting my phone was blowing up for almost an hour with urgent weather alerts warning of an impending snow squall in my city. What the fuck is a snow squall? My answer is “Something I never need to experience again, although fortunately I did live to tell about it.” In short the roads were already wet, then the temperature rapidly dropped and the sky opened up dropping snow that was being blown around at 35-50 degrees on roads that had now turned to ice with zero visibility…. hmm I guess it is easier to call it a snow squall?
I got completely baked. A couple times even. While it’s not that I have never smoked pot before, it’s never really been “my thing”. This week though, it has been my thing.
As usual, I’ve got lots to write about but have literally not had one moment to myself since I last wrote. Tomorrow I will finally have some time to myself. It’s Tysabri day though so I may end up sleeping the day away. We shall see.
While I haven’t been able to tell you what day it was for the last couple weeks, I do know that tomorrow is Monday. Next week is going to be just as busy beginning tomorrow morning with my Tysabri infusion. Usually, I sleep on infusion days. I am hoping tomorrow is one of the rare times I don’t.
I hope all is going well for all of you and that if you are swamped it’s doing something that you enjoy. Til next time
