Kiwi, doggy of a friend
On Saturday I visited Rick. Already when I opened the door and saw him I thought he is not well today and indeed, he must have undressed because his trousers were the wrong way, the back was in front and his jacket was tucked inside.
He fiddled with his remote control and couldn't manage to turn down the volume, even though it's a very special and easy remote control my son had bought for him, there were only two keys, one for the volume and one for the channels.
After I got his clothes in order he started complaining about his waffles, that he didn't have enough, although I had brought 4 packages of 10 waffles each! He behaved like a hamster, who provided for the winter.
Finally I noticed that he was tired and preferred to stay alone, he couldn't speak well either. I left and drove home. Honestly I was pretty down. Of course nobody called me to know how I was doing. That's because I am a "strong" woman. At least that's what people believe, but even strong people can have weak moments ! I slept very badly that night too. I always think he will become better, but there is no hope it will only get worse. I absolutely need to learn not to let myself go like this. If I don't work anymore what then?
On Sunday when I woke up I thought I stay in bed but coffee called and I had to get up to feed little RosieOutside the sun was shining a bit and I drank my coffee. I just didn't want to do nothing. And then the phone rang and it was my friend Claudie who lives in the South of France who called me just to know how I was. I was really happy, that she had thought of me. We chatted for an hour and then I was feeling better ! I was sure that if I need a change I am always welcome in her home.
After lunch I picked up Nicole, who is not allowed to drive anymore because of her brain cancer and my neighbor came over too, and we enjoyed the warm sun shining through the windows.
We had a real nice afternoon and so much to tell ! Nicole is looking now for a retirement home, because she feels not secure anymore alone in her apartment. Probably she will join Rick ! That would be nice although Nicole has no problems at all with her brain !
The weatherman just announced a storm for tomorrow !
