Just when you thought I was gone from Stories from the Road because I was frolicking on a beach in some exotic corner of the world, you come to find that I was actually just living in another little suburban hamlet...not far from Judiland....doing the 24/7 with my dad....along with a bevy of wonderful caregivers, I must add!
|My dad's caregivers and I......beaching it.....or were we "bitching it..."?|
My sisters ventured off to the beach with their families while I stayed back to keep the home fires burning.....going to work, caring for my dad, listening to his stories, planning his menus, watching lots of Andy Griffith and other high-quality shows from the golden years of television, slipping him an occasional ice cream sundae, dolling out his meds and keeping everything in his world right-side-up.
My life was anything BUT right-side-up.
As my sister's texted me pictures of the beach.....I texted them pictures of what was happening here in my world
|Escaping to my own private outdoor bar by the air conditioning unit at my sister's house....to drink wine and grab a smoke...|
|Loading up on caffiene and lounging at the office to keep up my stamina|
|More wine....next to the cache of my father's meds....|
Yes, it's been quite an adventure.
Life will be returning to my normal frivolity and festivity shortly.
Confetti and cupcakes all around....
