Things are pretty much the same with Dad. I have a long list of things I want to get done. Finding time to sleep is one of them.

The two things ... three actually, that I want to mention is, well, Dad lost his hearing aids over the weekend. The hospital started a formal investigation over it given the cost of those hearing aids.

The next thing I wanted to mention is I saw one of the most impressive rainbows I have ever seen arching across the sky after the storm today. I wish I could have taken the time to go to the city's park and take in the scene of that huge rainbow over the lake. Hmm, or given the angles, maybe it would have been over BP Petroleum's refinery if viewed from the park ... I'm not sure.

The third thing I wanted to mention is that I want to post more here, but right now words are failing me. One of many things I want to get done that isn't being done right now is posting and reading here. There are a lot of emotions bubbling inside of me, and right now I can't figure out how to express/release them.

I *have* to figure out how to, if not get moving with my life, keeping up with what needs to be done while Dad's in the hospital at least. Between the caregiver, her daughter (who's a better caregiver than the one we've hired), and me, Mom's staying more or less on track. It's just my life that's in chaos again. It's funny, every time I think I've figured out how to deal with life and start to think I can make progress toward my goals, I get a curve ball thrown at me and suddenly I'm behind in the count again.

Hmm, I'll just end this with this quote, "You spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball, and in the end it turns out it was the other way around all the time." -- Jim Bouton

I wonder who's gripping what in my life.

Glad to hear your trying to organize your life. I find disorganization really annoying, but I usually put up with it until I can find a good time (an make a real effort) to cleaning it up. Kind of like my desk at work...it's an organized mess.

I wish I could have seen the rainbow. But I wanted you to know that your description of it put a smile on my face as I imagined the last rainbow I saw. (except for the part about the tank farm) Ahh...urban living.

Hey! First Cubs game of '04 is Thursday. You ready?

I've been looking forward to Cubs baseball.

I was even thinking of carrying a little radio and listening to the game on Thursday, but given what is being planned for that day, I'm not sure about that now.

Anything that reduces stress on you works. Post as you need to, we'll wait.
