WOOHOO!!!! Time for confetti, fanfare, parade!!
That is really an incredible change!! Party time!! (a silent one I promise, don't want to wake anybody up!!)
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!! You deserve it!!
I'm glad he's being so nice and treating you better!! You certainly work hard taking care of him!
My hats off to you,
Oh Dhyani, my heart breaks for you that you have to put up with all this. You are such a helpful, wonderful person.
I have elderly sick parents as well who I spend a lot of time running around after, but they are always so grateful for everything I do for them, even if it is just popping in to say hi. I can't imagine what it would be like trying to cope with what you do.
Good luck and hope everything is still going smoothly.
Thanks! Sadly, my/our situation is NOT unique.
BUT . . . I think this is the TENTH day in a row that Dear Old Dad has been a delight!
Which means . . . I haven't been a reactionary dick. I'm sleeping muuuuuch better, not a hint of a migraine, and have started singing again. Not in public, but doing my vocal exercises again, cuz I'm a bit rusty.
When the weather turns to crap in Fall, and Dad's inside more, hopefully I can get away here and there and guest in with a few local musicians who have been begging me to gig with them for years. Haven't touched the piano or guitar for years, other than to dust them. Until recently, I have been slamming doors alot, ahem ~ getting my percussive ya ya's out! I don't give a hoot about being paid, I just want to have some FUN!!!
Being so severely under-socialized for so long (and I know I've posted it before, but it makes me laugh in a sad but true way):
Being sort of feral for so long, I must remember . . . NO PLATE LICKIN' OR NOSE PICKIN' IN PUBLIC!!!
XXOO ~ Dhyani
Oh Dhyani, you make me chuckle 'cause I'm right there with you, for different reasons, but there in any case. I truly hope you're able to tickle those ivories and strum those strings again soon. Best of luck...
