After Christmas

It's time to put all the decor away but we just finished the ginger bread train 3 days ago. Oh well.

Monday I took gpa to the
Gpa's daughter came over Christmas eve & we celebrated Christmas.  It was really nice. We played a little game of scrabble,  went to cedar key for lunch, unwrapped presents. On Christmas we actually went my fiancĂ©' s grandmother's celebrated Christmas,  then to his aunt's for lunch, then to our friends house to do presents there too. Whew. We had a family friend stay with gpa.

I went to the store yesterday to get wrapping paper for next year! I got a Big boss oil-less fryer for Christmas so hopefully get to try it out today! :) yum

Still no phone call from the doctor's office about gpa's x-rays. Ugh. Guess that means no broken toe and on to something else? He did get up once last night but it wasn't an outburst or anything, just to turn off the light in the kitchen.

If anyone has any recommendations on humidifiers to help with cat allergies...I need it. So miserable!

So I haven't been wanting to blog because of the negativity that is in my head. Not about being here, but about who your friends are. My fiance has taught me a phrase that is so true "a friend in need is a friend in deed". It's so true. That's all my ranting about that though...

We had some fun now...

While we were away his buddy was here taking care of gpa. He was only able to get gpa to soak his food one night (in Epsom salt to help his toe) , for this is not an easy task. He finally told him "if your foot isn't better I'll get in trouble when she gets home"

So one day he was asking about his pistol constantly  instead of telling him someone else has it (I have a 5 pages of notes to answer just about anything) he tells gpa my fiance has it. So gpa says well I need to get him back. We tease that he should hide the tv in the desk (sense we apparently hide everything in the desk according to gpa)

----so weird?
My fiance turns of the TV last night to get gpa to go's 10pm! Somehow his patch comes up & gpa says "she said we aren't doing one tonight" --or something like that. Of course I didn't say that. Then after he showers I go to do his patch & he says that again plus that he didn't get one last night either. I just yes, I put it on last night. Then he said well you took it off. I disagree...this goes on a couple of times. Then I pull of his patch & he says well you took it off & put it back on. ---That just doesn't make a bit of sense. I know Alzheimer's doesn't make sense but it's puzzling how the brain is working/not working.

Yep....there's more!!

So while we were visiting my family I learned how to make my papa's homemade yeast roll recipe---not good for the waistline! It was his mother's recipe! They are so amazing. I'm going to try to make them today!! Yikes! I was going to try to make them yesterday but I had to wash our new pyrex & rubbermaid then we got a CAT!  An indoor cat at that. Oh my allergies are kickin' today. I'm going to study on bookkeeping too since I'll be bookkeeping for my fiance's business...yikes!

Okay...did I update enough? I think that was good. Now to work

after vaca

So I started to blog on my trip to texas but never finished it. What a week!! Ice ice baby in Texas!

Well we just got back Tuesday.  Did I mention we drove? Yawn & what a mess to come home too. Haha leave gpa & his Buddy here. ..not much cleaning got done. Oh well.  They had a great time.

Now I'm injured though.  Just got back from working a promo job, cleaned kitchen & now...ouch. no right hand for a couple days.  Not tendinitis again though.  Im so glad I finished laundry & grocery shopping!

OK I can't handle typing on my phone with one hand...& I'm no lefty.  Until next time
