Crappy day

One of the reasons I started this blog was to keep in touch with my family so that they could see what my daily, mundane life was like.  Only they won't read it.  Can't be bothered.

So they don't know about my pain and fatigue and the financial problems.  They just see that I won't come down to visit.

My dad is in the hospital with pneumonia.  I'm trying to figure out how to get down there and when.  It's a 12 hour drive in a car with no a/c and front windows that don't roll down.

I'm a bit of a mess right now and not good company.

I did some knitting on the shopping bag and the Helm's Deep shawl but haven't done more on designing the other shawl yet.  Depression makes me unproductive and since I live with untreated clinical depression...yep, my life is mostly unproductive.

I got the garden planted this morning but haven't gotten the fence up.  I need to add beans and peas to the garden and get my flowers planted, but I can only work for about an hour to an hour and a half a day without just winding down to zero energy.

I have much to decide and plan for so I probably won't get anything done tonight.  I could go to bed right now though.  And sleep.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks. He was improving in regards to the pneumonia but with the COPD he's just not going to get better. It's amazing that he's lived with it this long as he's had it for nearly 20 years.

I will let my family know about your gracious thoughts and prayers. It means a lot to us.
