Yesterday marked 5 years since my Dad was buried. It seems a lot longer ago than that in some ways, and like it was yesterday in others. It was hard to hold a conversation with him in the end, so deep into the dementia he was. But we could always at least talk about the weather.
Today we get DH's fancy new headgear removed so they can analyze the data. Hopefully it will clarify the situation so the doc can formulate a treatment plan for whatever ails him.
I keep telling myself I will not complain about the cold weather...I know how hot it will likely be this August, when I will be praying for cold weather, and ruing my impending electrical bills. This is the first weekend in 3 years now that we have turned on the central heat. Even on the coldest days, 13*F, here, it stayed at or above 53*F inside the house. But with DH being uncomfortable in his headgear, and cold with the inactivity, he wanted to be warm, so the heat got turned on. I admit the warmth is nice...but I hate how much it costs me to run it.
This coming weekend is not only Valentines Day (Friday for any who have forgotten), but also a big Dog Adoption Weekend at Petsmart stores all over. The dog rescue I volunteer with, TIRR, is participating all three days. We will try to go out possibly two days, to help out. The kids love to do it, and I love to interact with the dogs. With more helpers to wrangle dogs, the TIRR folks have more time to talk with prospective adopters, and the dogs get more attention one-on-one.
Here's hoping everyone has a good week, a safe and healthy week, and be sure to remember to hug your loved ones and your animals too!
