I cannot believe it has been six months.
Time flies when you are having fun.
I have no real excuse except that I have been very stressed.
I have become poop obsessed.
My darling Jasmine has aged rapidly.
Has taken to pooping in her sleep.
Everyone says do the dirty.
But I cry when I just think about it.
She is still eating.
She still wants to go for her walks.
For the last week she has had NO accidents.
However, this is because I wake her up at three in the morning and sit outside shivering until she does what is required.
It takes a lot of coercing to get her to go outside.
She looks at me as if to say WTF?
I was sound asleep.
Unfortunately, I am also waking up at eleven and one and two.
Not getting much sleep.
As I am now in my 70th year I guess my internal clock has gone a bit haywire too.
Jasmine is thirteen and a half so I can only imagine how SHE feels.
I am NOT enjoying going to work at six in the morning.
It is pitch dark.
The white lines have not been painted since Noah set sail.
One has to drive by memory.
Today it was raining which made it even more fun.
Add to that busses that sail through red traffic lights.
Because they are bigger and they can.
And let us not talk about the black taxies.
They also go through red lights.
They stop to offload passengers in the traffic lane.
They reckon if they have their hazard lights on they can do as they like.
And they do.
I breathe a sigh of relief every time I get to work safely.
Where is that damn lottery win?
To add to my woes my precious Stepdad got cancer back in his nose.
He had to have two ops in two days.
It really took it out of him.
The one day I spent eleven hours at the hospital and was finished.
Fortunately they appear to have caught it all.
Though he does not look quite as handsome as before.
Mother is definitely going into dementia.
Repeats herself all the time.
It is driving the old man crazy.
I need to find someone to come and help her and to cook for them.
They should be in a retirement home but won’t hear of it.
I spend a lot of my time visiting them and taking him to various doctors and specialists.
maybe that could be excuse number two.
Anyway, enough for now.
