Lack of Entries

I haven’t written much lately because I have been dealing with another death in the family. This time my grandmother passed away. Her death was sudden and unexpected. Yes, she had Alzheimer’s. Yes, she had medical problems. However, there was no indication of her passing away when she did.

What happened was this: She was having a bout of confusion, so she went to the hospital. The doctor after examing her felt that it could have been due to some new medication she had been put on. He was going to keep her for a few days just to make sure everything was ok. On her 2nd day, she was having trouble swallowing and wasn’t being very responsive. She passed away that night.

It went from “It’s her medications”, to “I’m sorry. She didn’t pull through”. This upsets me on so many levels. My grandma and I had become very close in the last 3 years since my mother passed away. We were always close, but in the last 3 years we talked every day, and sometimes twice a day. She was like another mother to me. It hurt a lot when she passed away, and it still does. It’s like losing my mom all over again.

Since my grandma has passed away I haven’t had much interest in writing blog entries, playing games or even watching TV really. So, obviously, the blog has taken a backseat for awhile. Hopefully, soon I will be in a mood to write some entries soon.

I just wanted to let you all know the situation in case any of you noticed I had vanished from the blogosphere and assumed I had been abducted by the government.

SHOWSHEET_Goldbergs_stand-640I was bored this evening, and flipped through Hulu to see if anything worth watching was on, when I saw a listing for Season 3 of the ABC series “The Goldbergs“. I rather enjoyed the show, however I thought it got cancelled after the first season! Apparently it hasn’t and now season 3 has started. This means I need to watch ALL of season 2 in order to catch up. Thankfully the entire second season is available for viewing on Hulu, so catching up will be a cinch!

I’m not sure why I thought the show was cancelled. I checked it’s Wiki page, and apparently it never got cancelled! It’s not like it’s a show that got the axe, but then got saved thanks to the love of it’s fanbase. It was just renewed. What I did see on the wiki is that the show changed days/time and got moved behind the show “The Middle“, which is an ABC show I don’t watch, and in fact until last night thought it was “Malcom in the Middle
just renamed after the character Malcom left. Imagine my surprise when I discovered myself to be wrong. Fun fact: I never watched Malcom in the Middle either!

Some of you may have noticed, that I have been missing from my blog, for the past couple of months. Not many of you, but I now at least one person noticed it! Some of you might have just went with the natural assumption that I had died. That is wrong! So, what happened you ask? Where have you been you exclaim curiously?

A few things have occurred that has taken my time away from my blog. To begin with, it’s been Winter. I have been enjoying every bloody second of it! Winter is without a doubt, the best season! So, I have been soaking up as much coolness as possible, hoping beyond hope that it will be enough coolness to keep me alive throughout this coming summer.

Then secondly, my computer decided it lacked the will to continue living. Which means I have to get it repaired and force it to live. Because my needs should come before a bloody machine dammit!

On the upside, I should begin posting more. There’s so much I want to tell and discuss with you. Keep an eye out, and subscribe!

Family Fights

I love my family. I really do. I would be lost if anything ever happens to them. I love and adore them. The thing is, me anbd my family don’t usually get along. We argue, we fight, we yell and occasionally scream. I don’t like the fact that we do this, it makes me upset and such, because if something happens to them or to me, I don’t want the last thing they have to remember of me, or me to have to remember of them, is a huge giant messy fight.

I also end up feeling like total shit after a fight, and our family doesn’t do the whole appology thing. In fact, if someone tries to appologise it usually makes the situation worse and you end up hearing something to the effect of “Well, saying sorry doesnt do squat! The only thing that does is try to ease your mind because you feel guilty, and you should because you’re wrong!”. Which is crappy, because, honestly…if someone does feel bad for something, them saying they are sorry actually for me DOES make me feel better, because it’s their way of they didn’t want what happened to have happened.

Anyway, I just had one of those family arguments, and I am depressed, so I think I am just going to go sit on the porch for awhile.

Ever have just “One of those weeks”? Course we all have I think! This week seems to be “One of those weeks” for a LOT of people, myself included. It seems like everyone I know is going through difficult times, and it really sucks because half the time I can’t say or do anything to make things better..Although I do try, most of the time however all I do is make thanks worse *Le Sigh*

So, if you are one of those people, going through “One of those weeks” this week…take comfort in knowing at least that you are NOT alone. Maybe it’s something in the air or the water…I haven’t a clue…but it seems like 2 out of 3 people i know are having one….

Either way….Try and keep happy, and keep a smile going! Things ALWAYS have to improve..it’s impossible for things to keep worse(Unless you die I suppose :p) So, if there’s any truth in what people say about smiles being contagious…Here’s something to help you along your way!

D

Good news, my Granny was released from the hospital today. She’s feeling a little better, although slightly weakened, but that’s to be expected I suppose. However the important thing is that she’s OK and she’s home 🙂 I must admit I was slightly worried….ok, maybe a little more than slightly…lol

My Granny

My Grandma ended up going to the hospital today. Although from what I gather its not serious, I am still worried about her! You see, my Grandma isn’t as young as she once was, nor is she as young as she likes to think she is. In fact, she is for the most part living on borrowed time. So, despite the fact that her “Condition” isn’t too serious, the fact that shes spending a few days in the hospital in it’s self isn’t good!

I’m not exactly sure what’s wrong with her, I have just been assured its not too serious. From what I have been told, her “Electrolytes” are low? Now, I don’t know what those things are, but apparently them being low is a bad thing, and can cause all kinds of weird and strange things to happen to your body. This is apparently what happened to my dear ol’ Granny. Doctors have told my family that she should be quite fine. They want to keep her a few days to monitor her and to hook her to an IV, just to be “Sure”.

I do hope she is ok. I am fully aware that women on her side of the family don’t live too long. Hell, the men don’t either. In fact, she’s the longest living family member in the history of the family! So, I am aware that her time is drawing near. That doesn’t mean I will accept it gracefully when it does happen though. You see, my grandma maybe a lot of things. She’s mean, she’s insultive, she can be sometimes cold or insensitive. However in the end, what it boils down to is this; She’s my Grandma. Although she and I argue and fight a lot. I love her with all my heart, and worry about her constantly. Even when we are fighting I love her.
