Could it be that my life is just that boring? Probably.
Oh wait, there was the stunning multi-car accident that I happened upon while I was going out to pick up Chinese food! Just 1/4 mile from my house.
|Yes, that SUV is on top of and crushing another car!|
|The car with the missing front end was the third one in this accident.|
Not boring I guess.
I did, however, visit a new Community Center just 10 minutes from my house. Just 10 minutes away, only 2 years old, and I had absolutely no idea the building was even there. (Do I live in a paper bag or what!) They have a great indoor walking track and in this muggy hot weather, an indoor air conditioned track sounds just fine. I prefer being outside but when conditions are so terrible that I can't take a deep breath - indoors I go! They also have a state-of-the-art gym with great looking equipment. Seniors (which I am), can use the gym for $25 a year! How's that for a deal? Use of the walking track is free! Can't beat the price.
My walking has taken quite a hit this summer. Walking and breathing at the same time is kind of important! But I am still loving my FibBit Flex. That is why I am eager to find a viable option for walking indoors on these terrible days.

Rest in peace, dear dad. Sorry I don't visit more often. I know you were ill with alcoholism and when you lived there wasn't much help for that. At least I have a few good memories and mementoes of your life. I wish you had lived long enough to meet your grandchildren. You would be proud of them.
Finally, here is a picture I have been holding on to a bit.
|Easter at Brooke Grove|
She has started to ask me again when she is "going home." It breaks my heart when she says that as I want to think she is content where she is. Coming back home now is next to impossible. She can't climb even one step and I have tons of them. And her care has reached a level beyond my abilities. So technically she is "home." During our last Family Meeting, the staff reported that mom seems "content." Maybe she is content at times, but there must be a small part of her that is not content. It continues to pain me.
Guess there were a few topics to blog about after all! :-)
Hope you all are doing well this hot summer. Be back again soon.
