Life can be so demanding and hard sometimes but never ever give up!

After November I was going to concentrate on editing my first book to get it printed via createspace. But my grandmother, as of Sunday, has been in such severe pain from her foot where the veins are not delivering the right amount of blood, that the pain medication given to her has made her not herself. She hallucinates in every single way, or we find she’s walked to the front door or laundry room and things people are coming after her, or are here already to kill us all.  Monday morning right before I was going to leave to take my younger son to school I peaked in on her and found her bed empty which scared me to death. She cannot walk, Her wheelchair was there, but no grandma, Iooked in her bathroom and closet both were empty.  Then I saw that the small laundry room that holds one washer and one dryer and one cat litter box well the door was closed.  My older son had left for school on the bus and my mom who has MS, was in bed.  I went to the door and sure enough my grandmother was in there but she refused to come out.  I got my mom up and then took my son to school. I cried all the way there and all the way back.  All we do is help her in every single way but the medicine changes her mental state and emotionally it is draining because there are things she says to us that hurt badly. I swear we are doing the best we can but my mom’s multiple sclerosis is bad and though it has been only since Sunday that everything we know has been turned upside down, I feel drained. I yelled at God on Monday and prayed and prayed since then.  Grandma loves her horror movies but hasn’t watched tv since Saturday.  Early this morning there were ‘things’ in the walls and they were telling her not to tell us that they were after us. Take this moment and tweak it and you get another hour of oddness.  And then you get 24 hours of it, then 48, then 72 etc.  I am reading when I catch the time and will be positing reviews as soon as I can. And more free books from Amazon of course. But right now, I can barely function and I have a fifteen yr old son and a ten yr old one.  With four cats, it can get bonkers here but now, it’s just plain crappy.  But I won’t let my depression become stronger than me and defeat me. My grandmother has always been a super strong and stubborn woman. I’m stubborn too.  I push the depression back and look for little things like the wet grass after it rained or listening to music on the way home from dropping my son off at school to keep me going. Nothing is impossible. Believe it, live it.

Today is a busy day. Drive to drop my youngest son off at school (takes twenty minutes each way), go to allergist and he gets his shots (one in each arm!), go home, eat then do homework, dinner, take care of his brother, then head out EARLY to Back to School night. An hour early to find parking. On the first day of school, there was NO parking. We parked down this residential street a long ways away from the school.  We can go early and read or play Animal Crossing New Leaf together.  I didn’t sleep well last night and I would so love to crawl into bed right now. To rest my head on my pillow! Oh what a dream. That’s the perfect excuse to eat some Coffee Health Bar ICE CREAM! HA HA! Sounds good to me.  Okay I got my ice cream. Yum!  On the way to school today, my youngest son was eating a Jolly Rancher candy in place of brushing his teeth. No no no! Sweet watermelon breath doesn’t replace clean teeth! For reasons known only to nature, my youngest must wear deodorant. I bought “Tom’s” brand, ‘natural and long lasting without chemicals mountain spring scent’. But the child is so ticklish and he thinks I can get the wide container UP HIS SLEEVE and get some on his skin. I said it would be easier if I could apply it before he put his shirt on. Going up his sleeve is terrible! The deodorant is extra wide and a child’s sleeve isn’t.  What a day this is turning out to be. Anybody know what would make the difference in a 9/10 year old’s mind about saying ‘Peter Pan’ is okay to read but NEVER ‘Pinnochio’? Because that’s what he said, “NEVER” with a growl in reference to poor ‘Pinnochio’. He grabbed the Peter Pan book and took it to bed. Huh. The inner workings of the male mind are always beyond me but usually I can figure out some things but for this situation? Clueless with a big question mark over my head. Though I can say I saw ‘Peter Pan’ on stage when I was a kid.  And I didn’t know so much about special effects like I do now so it was awesome to see ‘Peter’ fly!
