I am glad the work week is over. I hope an opportunity comes through for me soon. I really need the change.
My Dad told me he is going to tell the doctors he is done since they all say they do not know what to do for him. He is not going to see any more doctors until he is in pain again. Yes, that shocked me, the again part. He finally admitted he was in pain. He said the chemo pills made the pain go away. Now that he will be quitting the chemo pills he is sure eventually the pain will come back again. He said he is just done wasting his time at the doctors and money if all they tell him is there is nothing more they can do. I understand where he is coming from.
We had a lot of snow the other day. I was afraid it was going to ruin a meeting I had yesterday, but it did not. I have another meeting to go to on Monday. I am a little worried about the weather for this one. It is suppose to be a mixture. I hate freezing rain. We need the rain more than snow because we need the ground to take in the moisture due to the drought. Snow is not what we need. We did need a hard freeze to kill the bugs in the ground for next year. Now we need rain.
I finished my book this month. I did not read as much as I did last month but the book was a good one. I hope I do it justice when I post about it. Todd has been reading more too. He needs bifocals now and will have an eye appointment on Monday. I went last Monday. I can not wait for my new glasses to be able to see better. My prescription changed drastically they said. This is the second time I have gone in, I should have went last year but I kept putting it off because I was not eligible for new frames yet; any way this is the second time the prescription has changed for the better not the worse. Some odd reason my eyes are getting a little better. I will take that. I fell in love with this one pair of frames but did not get it. It was only $6 over the $150 allowance too. I would have only paid 80% of the $6 for my frames. I kept putting them on. I wanted them in the worse way, but they did not have the hinges on the frames. I need them with Taj. He still grabs our glasses every now and then, so I went with my second favorite which was $18 dollars over the allowance, not bad since frames can be so expensive. I am going to try transitional lenses this time. This way I do not have to buy sunglasses too. I did that last time and thought, I do not need the bifocals on the sunglasses. I was wrong! I did not realize how much I used my bifocals even with just sunglasses... the cell phone I needed it...maps...writing checks if I ran into the gas station or even signing a slip for the gas station.
One night when had Taj, Papa was reading his book at the kitchen table as I prepared dinner. Taj wanted me to read to him at that time as well. I was able to read a book maybe five times to him, then I placed him in his booster chair next to Papa and told him he has to read his book now so I can finish dinner. It was so adorable seeing him sitting next to his Papa and both of them reading the book. It was a moment, I wished I had my camera with me.
Well, I need to be off to get the weekly chores done before we have to deal with Mice. Tomorrow will be another unpleasant job. Our long hair cat Cali needs to be shaved. UGH!!!
