friends, cuddly

a bit more on my dad and other things

It's been very good being able to be with my parents and interact with them. Other than seeming a bit thin, my dad seems fine if you only talk to him for five minutes or so. But anytime I try to talk about anything more than superficial with him, he changes the topic or just gets lost. They've done a memory test and four spinal taps on him so far this week; hopefully, they can find something.

Other Stuff:
I've been needing more people interaction while here. I want to spend lots of time with my parents, so I find myself going out to the grocery store and interacting and seeing people there while picking things up for my parents.

I'm missing ferrets. I know that it's not a good thing for me to have a pet that only lasts 6–9 years. It breaks my heart too much. But I still miss playing with them.

I'm a bit dismayed that the Thunder and Lightning that happened earlier this week happened when I couldn't see it. Grump.

I'm sure there is more but I'm not coming up with it right now. Hopefully later.

At least one other thing - Madeleine L'Engle

Ah. I remembered at least one other thing. I'm aggrieved that Madeleine L'Engle has died. She had a very great influence on my life. I delight in her description of God and divine love that I have on my profile page. It saddens me that Luciani Pavarotti died but that doesn't affect me deeply and personally like Ms. L'Engle's death. Goodbye learned loved one.
