Road Trip

Today is the first day of my vacation. LOL
Well it is.
We are going to my sisters. Then we just hang out. Get in the car and drive one another crazy. So when I get back I'll let everyone know how this years vacation went.
The highlight of our trip will be to see my brothers' soon to be house.

I'm a good big sister

Friday was my sister's birthday. We went and had our hair done and then I took her out to lunch. We went to a new teashop close to the hairdressers. It was a very nice lunch. Only one other table was occupied. So the place was very quiet. We sat and talked and talked. It was nice not to have to think of anything else.
Then we had to get back to reality. We ran our errands.
My kids met us at my parent so we gave my sister her birthday present. Last year I didn't get her much of a gift, no money. So this year we gave her a portable DVD player, headphones, and a carrying case. She was so shocked. We then lent her some of our many DVD's. She says last night she stayed up way to late watching one of the movies.
Only two more nights of work and I'm on vacation. Granted it I'm only off for 8 nights, but that is better then nothing.

So I'm no good at life

I slept until 1pm. Went to my mother's. Took my son to Hollywood Video to get more movies. Heated up frozen pizza. Vegged in front of the TV watching videos. Awful. Tomorrow looks to be just as bad.

So I've been thinking about the creative process. Maybe I need to do more with it. I've always thought that since I knit I'm fulfilling my creativity. I guess I'm not. Now for something else to think about.
Still reading The Artist Way.
Listening to: The Best of Clannad.
Trying to plan a short vacation at the end of the month. Just hope my mother is doing well enough for us to leave her for a few days. I need to get away even if it is just for a short while.

I went to see the Metallica movie today.
I am not creative. Of course I'm not a boozer or a druggie. They seem to have given all of that up.
I keep trying to find my creative side.
I'm not sure what is stopping me. I've been reading The Artist Way. It is a very good book. I just don't think it is speaking to me yet. I can't afford a therapist so I need to do it on my own. Either that or go back to school. I think I've been saying that for the past 20 years.
Still no knitting. I just carry it with me where ever I go. If I don't have it with me I miss it.
Maybe I need to learn how to play the drums. LOL

A good day

My mother had a good day with OT and PT today. OT helped her have a shower and says she can do her activites on her own. PT gave her more exercises to strengthen her knee. The good thing is she wasn't exhausted when PT left. So I guess she is getting her strength back.
Didn't know today. Don't know when I'll get around to knitting. Maybe something this weekend.

I complain to much

When I was at work last night I read my blog. I spend way to much time complaining about the fact that I do not get enough sleep. I think I need to stop.
I am almost finished with my exchange gift. Makes me feel good about that. One less thing to stress about.
I'm off until Sunday night. I can hope for sleep and the energy to complete tasks.

All Star Game

Tonight is the All Star Game. I'll try and watch as much as I can. As usual there is so much to do around her I really shouldn't be watching TV. I will anyway.

My mother is finding herself a lot more tired then she thought she would. PT and OT came today. She was tired before they even got there. They are both coming back on Friday but there should be a 3 hour break between the two of them.

I'm almost finished with my exchange gift. I should take it with me to work. Then I have a better chance to finish.Im at the boring part. Tha is ok. It looks cute. I picked a good color. Considering I am using yarn from my stash.

I really feel that I have been ignoring my blog. I do not have time to spend on the computer to make it look any different then it does already. So one of these days I'll have time.

Disregard the previous date.

I need to remember to read before I hit post.
The dates should be: July 7, 1951- July 7, 2004
Everyone can now laugh.

July 7, 1051- July 7, 2994

My parents have been married for 53 years. Today we had their celebration in my mother's hospital room. I bought a balloon and a card. My father brought a card. The SPCA made room visits. A little Lasha Lapso sat on my mothers bed and just lapped up all the petting. I think my mother was sad that she was in the hospital, but was happy to see all of us.
The good news is she will be home in Friday. My sister and I will bring her home. So tomorrow hight is my last night to spend in the hospital with her.
We've had some nice times.

I'm lost.

So what else is new.
I get on the computer this morning and everyone is writing about how their day at work is going and I keep wondering why everyone has to work on Saturday.
I need someone to keep an eye on me.
Either that or I need more sleep.

Was your journey really necessary?

My mother is now in rehab. One week after her operation. I am so exhausted. I'm sure she feels the same way. Hope she does well in rehab and can be home soon. One thing is sure she is never having another operation again.
