The faculty of making stupid discoveries by accident. The name of my first Fantasy Football Team. Neither of which have anything to do with this blog. I just like the word. Deal with it !!!!!!
WOW!!!! Thank you everyone. (and an update).
Serendopeity has had more than 5000 hits since starting last year. Thank you one and all who have been faithfully hanging with me.
I know that there are periods of time when I am very quiet – it gets tiring day after day making sure mom and dad are safe. It is getting more difficult by the day if the truth be known.
Although physically healthy mom’s mind seems to be fading, however, not nearly as quickly as dads is. For whatever reason he is beginning to hallucinate and refuses to sleep at night. Instead he naps all day – I cannot for the life of me figure out how to reverse this process. If we wake him during the day he gets all pissy with whoever it is that wakes him and when I try to explain to him at night that I cannot go to sleep until he does, he apologizes, tells me he is going to sleep and then proceeds to stay up. It is few nights when I manage more than a couple hours of uninterrupted sleep. I do manage to catch up a little on weekends when Craig makes sure that I get to sleep in.
Alzheimer’s is a most horrible disease. It robs you not only of your memories but also your dignity. I can only hope to hell that the gene if there is one, stops here and that neither of my brothers or myself are afflicted with it. Having EC has nothing on Alzheimer’s that’s for damn sure.
In other news, I haven’t heard back yet from anyone in Afghanistan on whether the packages have arrived. However, I did get an explanation on why it could be taking so long. The packages I send are addressed to Camp Mirage. For those who don’t know, Camp Mirage is a top-secret location of a Canadian Military Camp in Afghanistan. So, the packages I send go from the base in Trenton, to Kandahar and then are forwarded to Mirage, wherever it may be…that could add quite a bit more delivery time to the original 3 weeks I was told. So at least I feel a little better about knowing if the packages have arrived. It would be nice to know that they at least got there. I also heard through that “amazing” grapevine that some contraband got through (not in my packages). That being the case, it is also possible that the packages are being held up longer so that they may be inspected – inspectors are going to be a little disappointed to find mainly junk food in the one I send. I did manage to find a supply of silly string so at least that got send in the second round.
Bottomline, somethingfromhome is going slower than I would like – the corner of the dining room is piling up with items to send. I have never had an overabundance of patience and sometimes, well, it shows LOL.
Spring is on its way and with it comes mud…I hate mud and refuse to wash the floor until it is all gone. The dogs track it in so we have paw prints all over the floor LOL…it doesn’t make sense to wash it 10 times a day. Not only that, I don’t have the energy for that kind of work. Getting 4 loads of laundry done a day on top of everything else taxes me pretty much.
The real estate guys were here last week. It looks like the owner is putting the property up for sale. Not that I blame him, but, I really don’t want to move again. The price has been low-balled but even so I don’t know how long it will take to find a buyer. The house needs loads of work, the store needs work and the duplex – well that In reality though who wants to spend all that money and then tear it down. I wouldn’t – but maybe that’s just me.
Thats about it for now – again, thanks for sticking by me. I do appreciate it. 5107 hits is not even close to some other blogs, but it is a milestone for me and one I am proud of. I never thought that my blog would get 100 hits let alone over 5000. Keep it up and one day, just maybe, Serendopeity will the fastest growing blog on WordPress.
Have a good one
