Today I get to have 4, I think 4 are coming.....of my grandkids for the morning! My grandson goes to school but his two sisters are homeschooled. I'm not sure of they (his parents) will have Jairus, my grandson, go to school today or not. It will be a surprise. Their parents, my daughter and son-in-law will be attending a homeschool convention. Homeschooling is a huge responsibility and it's always helpful to go to these activities that show you the latest and greatest...any help is usually welcome!
So, it will be a busy morning, keeping the grandkids occupied...I'm glad it's a sunny day!
For those of you that have read previous posts about my son Corey and my parents...just a little update........
After Corey was moved from the ICU to the ward bed, I will admit to you that I haven't been back to see him. Last weekend was exhausting, emotionally and physically....we didn't know in the beginning of it all if he would even live.....once he was in the ward, my son Paul and I went to visit....the girl that Corey has been living with was there also. It was an awkward visit, and I came away with the feelings of anger.....anger that he wasn't indicating at all that he was going to change his lifestyle over all that had happened. Corey and his girlfriend spend a lot of their time drinking,....Corey was drunk when the accident happened...I was angry that not only did he put his own life in jeopardy, (even though he wasn't driving the motorcycle) he still was irresponsible and could have injured someone else when he fell of the bike.....who knows if there was other traffic around at the time. Corey's 26 years old...time to grow up and join the adult world....I don't think that will happen.....Corey will go back to his old lifestyle as soon as he's released. Pretty sad life....but one he has chosen.
My mom and dad...well, dad is still in the hospital, having his dialysis and doing rehab to make him stronger. So far, we only see him exhausted whenever we visit....heck, we're all exhausted...with moving my mother this week and someone always having to be available to take her to the hospital daily....well, it wears a body out, to be sure. My mom's been refusing, except for a piece of toast at breakfast, to take her meals in the dining room with the rest of the residents....so yesterday my sister refused to buy her food when they went to see dad...usually, whoever takes her would stop for supper on the way home.....that's what she holds out for...well, yesterday, sister just brought her back to the retirement home and she was forced into have supper there. Because of her dementia, she's acting like a sullen teenager so sister figured we had no choice but to treat her like one....in many ways my mom is very stubborn and her own worse enemy! She complains about being bored but refuses to join in the activities there..'with all those old people'!
So, it's been quite a week..full of emotional and physical ups and downs.....we're hoping that things will get better...that my dad will be able to join my mom at the retirement home soon.....
but for today...I'll just enjoy the grandkids..... :0)
oh...today is daughter-in-law Jennifer's birthday...Happy Birthday Jennifer!
Have a great weekend ladies!
