My grandmother was moved to a nursing home yesterday. I need prayers from everyone for the Medicare to come through. Her doctor is supposed to be working with the social worker at the nursing home on it, but right now her care is not being covered. Trust me when I say that the cost of skilled nursing per day would make anyone faint. I think my mom’s calm exterior is cracking. I’m going to see grandmother today. I haven’t been to the new place yet.
This weekend, Errol and I travel to the Atlanta area for my cousin, Holly’s, wedding. She and her older brother Chris are my only first cousins. Our father’s are brothers. Holly and I are the same age, and I haven’t seen her or Chris in years. My aunt and uncle came to our wedding, but they weren’t able to. I am really looking forward to it. For a brief period in high school, when I lived with my dad, Chris was living near us and I got to see him quite a bit. Well, more than usual. Most of our lives we have all lived states apart from each other. I am so glad I got to know him then, and I have a lot of regrets in not keeping in touch.
It will be interesting to all get together. I wonder if, being so closely blood-related, there will be inherent similarities between us. We shall see. I’m charging Errol as an outsider observer to collect data and make a report.
In other, unrelated news, I’m way too involved in Days of Our Lives. What is it about these soaps that sucks you in? Is it that you see these people every day? It’s certainly not the writing. If you watch… omigosh, I love Sami and Lucas!
Also on the subject of TV… Battlestar Gallactica! What an ep this past Friday, eh? Wows. The relationship between Starbuck and Apollo is one of my favorite ongoing threads through the story in this show, and like Apollo I seriously feel like I got punched in the gut after that one. Thank you, Ron Moore, for stepping those two up a notch. I can’t wait to see the aftermath of that “fight.” Why do I have to wat til January? ::pout::
