post-christmas calm

Christmas went pretty well. It was just Zach and me, since my dad doesn’t participate. He seemed altogether satisfied with his gifts. At his age, its hit or miss. I think I hit it this year. I got the Good Eats 2 book that I bought for myself.

We did visit my mom. she’s been feeling sick to her stomach so she hasn’t been one for company. This morning the dialysis clinic called saying she wanted to leave. I figured it was because she was sick, so I picked her up and took her to the rehab center. Turned out the reason she wanted to leave dialysis was she was tired. She’s tired every time.  I don’t know why this was any different. I think she’s being stubborn.

My dad is just about back to his normal self. His strength is up and he’s doing things around the house that he used to do. I guess he needed food to get him moving again. He goes to the ENT on January 7th to discuss the tumor. Goodness only knows what will come out of that.

Otherwise, I slept almost all day after the early morning run to dialysis. I slept a lot yesterday too. Its no wonder I’m having trouble getting to sleep at night. Tonight, maybe I just won’t try. Maybe I’ll just knit. That sounds like it could be a plan. Tomorrow I need to do laundry. Yay mundane tasks. I think I’m just worn out and that’s why I’m sleeping so much. I feel like I could sleep right now actually.

I leave you with another picture of holiday splendor.
