I haven’t been getting around to visiting all my blog pals and finding cool new sites. Mom has been poorly, and I’m her caregiver, so my messing around time is less than it usually is. When I have time to chill, I play Love Nikki Dress UP Queen, because it soothes me.
Mom has C. Diff, which is a nasty gastro bug that has to be fought with bleach and hot, soapy water. PLUS, she’s just been started on oxygen 24/7 and nebulizer treatments twice a day (I give them to her). PLUS, she’s got 6 weeks or so of Home Health, which means a nurse, an OT, a PT, and a grooming aide. Lot of paperwork and intake that I need to handle, because Mom has mild dementia. I wanted this to be permanent, but they tell me they’re only temporary. Hoping they can put me onto somebody who can help me ALL THE TIME, not just for a few weeks. The problems will still be here in a few weeks.
In case you wonder why I don’t take her in to live with me: Dementia gets worse in unfamiliar surroundings. She wants to be in her own home, and I’m dedicated to seeing that this happens for her as long as humanly possible.
ANYWAY, don’t stare at the sun, even during an eclipse, ‘kay? Here’s why.
If you want to look at a disk so bad, how about a 78rpm record? The Great 78 Project is digitizing as many 78 records as they can, which is totally awesomesauce. Have fun!
