It's been a while since I last posted and thought I would give you all an update on how life is going. My grandmother, who has lung cancer, is doing better. She's living at home now and has a nurse's ad helping her out and everything.
My grandfather was officially burried back in May. He doesn't have a tombstone yet. I think we're waiting until after my grandma passes away. It's expensive! I cannot believe the price on those things. We are still paying for his funeral. But he's worth every penny.
I've been thinking about a tattoo to get in honor of my grandfather. Although I am waiting until after I have kids to get it. So far there's going to be a Jack (As in the card game jack) because he was a jack of all trades. That's all I came up with so far. It's going to be a small tattoo. I have PLENTY of time to think about it. I ain't having kids for a couple more years that's for sure.
As with my life, well it's been pretty busy. I got a job. I'm a cashier in a grocery store. Make good money so. I have also been going to college the last 5 weeks. It's SOOO much fun and SOOOOO much better then high school. No drama whatsoever. I love it there! Been filming a few things and writing some scripts. It's amazing. I'm thinking of making a movie about my grandfather's life. How he grew up and I think it would teach a lot of people about Alzheimer's Disease and what it does to people. Not really anyone gets the feeling. It breaks family's hearts. I know it broke mine. That's why this place here helped me because you all know exactly what I was feeling and how to deal with it. And I thank you all SOOOOOO much for that.
One of my good friend's grandfather passed away on tuesday. Of what, I'm not sure. It wasn't Alzheimer's but when she told me he passed away I was immediately reminded of mine. I felt soo bad for her. I wanted to go to the funeral to be with her on friday but I was at school and couldnt make it there. I did get her a card and wrote a medium sized message in it.
I also found out that my cousin is now engaged. Don't know when the big day is. They haven't thought of one yet. But I can't wait for it.
Well everyone that's my update. I'm sure you'll see me around again very soon. I love you all. God bless each and everyone of you!!!
