Winning an iPad !

I don't blog anywhere else, so I hope this counts! I love my Kindle Fire, but it'd be really nice to win a iPad. If I won an iPad, I could rule the world! Well, maybe not rule the world, exactly, but I could take payment at flea markets, and that'd rock my world.

She heard about a place, people were smilin'...They spoke about the Red Man's way, and how they loved the land

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this blog entry has a LOT to say.  Unfortunatley, GuG requires fifty words, so I'll just babble mindlessly until we reach that number.  Are we there yet?


All the pieces seem to fit into place

It's amazing to me, how after setback upon setback, things can finally turn around in a few short months. 

She said there was nothing that I could have done, there was nothing nobody could say

My best friend of 30 years is gone.  I went to her funeral yesterday, mostly to see for myself that it was real.  She was 35 and had two beautiful boys aged 7 and 8.  She also had a manipulatve, controlling, abusive husband.  You may remember me mentioning her previously.  Her husband broke her cheekbone a year ago this weekend, in front of those two beautiful boys.

Oh well, a touch of grey kinda suits you anyway...

Dad always said his grey hair came from me.  He'd point to his head and say things like, "ya see this?!?  this is what I get for having 2 girls.  This bunch here, this is from when the older one knocked her teeth out.  This patch? Ah, that's from when I lost her in a puddle.  And this?  This is from when she got expelled from high school."  He wore his greys proudly, showing them off occasionally, like an old football injury or war wound.  To him, they were almost like family photos, memories he carried with him everywhere he went.

Worth every damn bit of sacrifice to get a cheeseburger in paradise

"I like mine with lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57 and French fried potatoes.  Big Kosher pickle and a cold draft beer!  Good God almighty, which way do I steer?"


I hope you're enjoying that burger and beer, Dad, you sure as hell earned it.

No, I would not give you false hope on this strange and mournful day

Which would you rather?  To be fed false hope through lies, or be told the truth, no matter how bad it sucks?  Me, I'd prefer not be lied to.  Even if that truth is "You're going to die in a nursing home", as long as it's true, I'd far rather hear that than be told I'm going home, when I'm not.

When the candle lights of home burn so very far away...

Medicare LIES to people.  When Dad was checked into the hospice facility on 7/7, we were all told that the plan was to get his pain under control, assess the house, and set him up with all the equipment and care needed to die at home.  Well, his pain is mostly under control, although it leaves him in a morphine induced state of paranoia.  The house has been scrubbed top to bottom, just waiting for the Medicare assessor to come and evaluate.  Yesterday, Mom and I met with a social worker to discuss Dad's discharge planning.  She said that Dad has "plateaued", and is no longer "in the process

But man, I still think those cats are crazy

After spending almost 2 full weeks without Gwen, I just couldn't do it anymore.  I need life around me, and my plants just don't cut it.  So, Boyfriend and I headed to the Vet's office last Friday, and let 2 little boys adopt us.
