Speak Your Mind Thread

Recommended Posts

Went and visited my 90 year old grandma yesterday.  She's physically in amazing condition, super active, more energy than I do.

 

But her mind is steadily going.  Yesterday was the worst I've seen it yet.  She kept calling me Chris (I have no idea who Chris could be) and she thought that her and I grew up in the same house.  She remembered my wife's name for maybe the first time ever which was surprising though.  

 

She kept telling us about how she was going to get a job so she could keep paying for her apartment.  She lives in a retirement home and it would nearly be impossible for her to run out of money b/c my grandpa left her well off.  

 

She didn't have her hearing aids in and refused to let us look for them so we were basically having to yell any time we talked to her.  

 

The weirdest thing was she kept wondering where my mom was. She kept saying that she had left with "those children" and that my mom "can't handle a bunch of children".  My mom was up in the mountains and certainly didn't have any kids with her.  I told my grandma that she was in the mountains and she was fine but inevitably within 5 minutes she'd ask me again.  Then I accidentally planted an idea in her head she asked where the children might be and I said "ahh my mom probably dropped them off somewhere and took off".  She laughed it off but for the rest of the time we were there anytime she asked where my mom was she'd say "I wonder if she just left them somewhere".  

 

She seems really happy though.  Makes me wonder, I always thought it would be so terrible to get old and start forgetting everything but now think it would be worse to have a sharp mind but be trapped in a decrepit body.

 

My great-grandma had full blown Alzheimer's by the time I a little kid and my only memories of her are her sitting in chair mumbling and playing with baby dolls.  She was probably 10 years younger than my grandma is now so all in all she's lucky.

Wife's grandma just passed last night and mine just took a fall, compressed her vertebrae and vicadin doesn't even seem to be doing the trick. She's in her 90s as well and her Alzheimers has been getting progressively worse to the point where she can't remember what she had for lunch 10 minutes ago. It's a 3 month recovery time but can't see her making through it with no activity for that long. It'sToughBrendenSchuab.jpg

Yeah my grandma couldn't remember that she had eating both breakfast AND lunch.  If fact she was just coming back from the lunch room when we got there.

Days where I feel like early onset is creeping up on me. My wife has gotten a better education and job since we've been together while I feel like I've regressed and wake up some days like...

Yea, I've never taken any kind of vitamin and remember growing up and my parents taking handfuls so I need to start being more proactive with my pending potato brain.

just watching some random video and some guy has a son named Maverick.

 

wtf kind of name is that?   I hope he's not named after the Ford Maverick, otherwise when he's 7 years old you might just find him dead on the side of the road somewhere.

two day work week. Vacation on Friday and Saturday, sweet baby jesus. Star Wars night at Angels Stadium this Friday, will be claiming my must needed Han Solo rally monkey! Going to a local airshow/beerfest event on Saturday. I am ready for the weekend.

 

Good thing about working 4 days a week, when I take one or two days off it feels like a full blown vacation. So I'm finna have 5 days off from Friday-Tuesday. Much needed break from work, I hate my schedule. Six years of working graveyard now,  I can't wait to go to days again and be on a normal sleeping pattern like a majority of the world...but who knows when in the fook that will happen

 

For now, I will continue to be awake in the AM

i just had my day off and now for some reason i cant seem to get in the mood to sleep

 

i didnt drink or get high or do anything really. f*ck im gonna be tired later

 

ive come to the realisation that sitting on the couch for a whole damn day absolutely sober really kinda sucks. monday i plan on getting straight f*ckered up though

 

i might shave my head bald tonight. been meaning to do that since last month. this chit is getting way too long and unmanageable for the summer. i cant believe how much this chit grown since april last year when i shaved it all off before. i had like 3 or 4 years worth of hair saved up on my head back then,  and in just one year ive almost already caught up to where i was at before.  there must be some Miracle Grow, or Just For Men or Ageless Male  laced into my weed or beer or something.

 

gonna try to get a nap in anyways but i feel id probably be more  productive and have more energy if i just stay up and bang around on the internet for a while and then drag my sorry **** in. i always seem to feel better with no sleep opposed to just a couple hours.  **** i hate pulling all nighters. i end up feeling so drained. back in my teens and my twenties it was never an issue. i could go for days like a trooper.  then again most of the time i was all hopped up on uppers and sleep was always just an afterthought.

I always try to subscribe to the idea that there are two many minutes in the day to let just a few ruin the rest. 

 

If chit hits the fan in multiples i might waver a little but then i realize i'm usually just making it worse and more chit comes. Most of the time it's better to be an optimist even if you have to mind fk yourself into believing it when everything tells you don't.

 

Then again if it's actually something i really need to acknowledge as a complete chit sandwich i will but i try to move on quickly with the thought it could have been a whole damn loaf lol many others have it worse and things aren't as bad as it may seem at the time.

Had my biggest redneck moment yet.  

 

Was out driving in the Mustang when I stopped at a light right up the road from my house.  I see a blue Ford Ranger come pulling up in the left turn lane and notice he's flying an American flag on the back.  He honks the horn and gets my attention.  

 

I look back and it's this big ole country boy with a broken tooth and bad tats.  He raises his fist in the air and I say "Murica!!".  He starts asking me questions about the Mustang and said he drives past it everyday on his way home.  Says he has a 92 hatchback, etc. The light turned and he gave me a grunt and a nod and pulled off. 

 

The weirdest part was he had all sorts of bumper stickers.  One said "I am NOT a liberal", but another was a PETA bumpersticker and some various tree-hugger stickers.

LOL that is odd. I guess he had to put the not liberal one to cover his shame for the others like a "see i'm still a man". 

 

Some tree hugger chit i suppose i could get behind. < Mostly just pot though. 

 

Lulz@ PETA though. Only thing they're good for is laughs and ads with scantily clad women. Some of them should be put on terror watch list as radical as they are.

I kept finding snakes in my yard as I was cleaning it up today. Finally I got pissed off, and started grabbing them, and throwing them.

 

One of them grabbed on to the electric wires. Then I'm pretty sure that same ****er dove off my garage, because a snake literally fell from the sky beside me at one point.

On the bumper stickers thing. I never had them on any car/truck i drove. Always thought they were kinda trashy like tramp stamps. 

 

I did have custom lettering before with the Saints logo & name. Other than that i'm not trying to advertise to the world. People can read a lot just by what car you drive etc. & i wouldn't wanna give anyone any more info than that with bumper stickers. 

 

If i did i guess i'd probably just have a "legalize it" sticker and a "fk the police" for good measure but i definitely know i'd get profiled and pulled over all the damn time if i did.

An old friend I used to go to school with is a Biologist and when we used to hang out he had pet snakes and whatnot, he let my handle them and one of the ****ers bit me on the wrist & wouldn't let go for a good few minutes. I just had to sit there waiting for it to let go.
