Catching Up

Hiya Geeeezers!
Long time, no blog. I know.
Life has been..... well, hard. Weariness has taken it's toll on my sense of humor. This is bad. I must overcome. I must persevere. I must rise above it all and look for the funny, the warped, the witty, the inspiring. I must take pictures of things that make me think "HUH?" I must take more moments to enjoy my day. To slooooow down and smell.
It is amazing that it is June already. Spring flashed by. My mom has been in and out of the hospital several times. She is fragile and this is scary. Nothing prepares you for this stage of life. It is confusing and sad and forces you to ask really grown up questions. I don't like it.
My sister had another seizure in May while my mom was in the hospital the last time. This was something we had hoped would never happen again. This time the doc says she is epileptic. This time I was there. I don't like to think about it. I had to act like a grown up that night too. I don't like it. But she is on meds now and adjusting and we pray it will never happen again. Meanwhile we try to shout it down and joke about it as best we can. They did a sleep study on her and discovered she has sleep apnea that probably contributes to the seizures since both times she was asleep when it happened. So they gave her a C-Pap machine. She is trying to adjust to this too. So far She doesn't like it. I tried to show her that you can use it as a jump rope and did a great impression of an elephant with a really long trunk. She isn't able to use it all night yet but she is trying. Our cat Oliver Thomas O'Malley Cat is doing great on it though. His snoring is WAY down
I lost my glasses and guess where we found them. Yep--- on Oliver Thomas O'Malley Cat. He really is running amok. He really only needs them for reading (he is mostly through the Twilight series) but he likes the bifocals. He broke them two nights later. I just finally got new ones. I am trying to keep them away from the cat. Remind me to tell you about the appointment sometime. The doc was a trip.
There are two new kittens in the house. We don't know where they came from. I will post pics soon. My digital camera broke so I am behind in downloading.
I will try to catch up. I know you have all been neglected. I apologize. I will try to do better!

I love the new photos of Oliver Thomas O'Malley ... my Riley is busy watching bird tv. When he's not doing that, he's bothering Meredith Ann.
