If It’s not One Thing,…

Yesterday, Sunday, was a very strange day, filled with sh**, um, cr**, well, just filled with stuff.  Sis and I went to church.  Unusual for me, as most of you know.  Mom’s b-day is in October and that was her wish, so there. Anyway, so that means I don’t get quite enough sleep.  However, I did manage to stay awake through church.  Then, we all went out to eat.  I was excited because the season 5 premier of “The Walking Dead” was on AMC at 9:00pm and I just found out that I now have AMC.  This meant I could watch the show without buying the episodes or the season!

After eating, I went home and tried for the afternoon nap I so dearly love.  I napped fitfully from 2:15 to about 4:30.  Mom then called, telling me that Dad had fallen off the porch steps and the ambulance was coming to get him.  She was looking for Sis to come help.  I can’t help much with that since I can’t lift Dad, but I did offer.  Therein began a weird day (well, weirder, anyway).

I stayed by the phone at home in case they needed me for something.  I did my usual stuff and waited.  At 8:30PM, I knew that Dad was at the hospital with Mom and Sis.  I was going to watch TWD at 9:00 pm.  At 8:45, Mom called to say that she and Sis were looking for a wheelchair and could I please go to Mom’s house to wait on the ambulance to bring him home as he couldn’t get to the chair by himself right now? I drove over and managed to get their TV on AMC by 8:59.  The countdown to TWD was down to about 30 seconds when I got it all right.  I decided all was okay.  The hospital was late as usual and I was watching my show!

At 9:20, the ambulance pulled in.  They got dad to his chair and the TV was immediately switched to the Cardinal/Giant baseball game.  They got him settled in by 9:35 and Mom/Sis were back with the wheelchair.  I went downstairs to watch the rest of TWD only to find that the cable stations they get downstairs did not include AMC!  By then, it was 9:50 and I gave up.  I made certain they were done with me and I went back home, played Skyrim and realized that I was still going to have to buy the first episode of TWD!

Now, just so I don’t hear it from all of you out there, it truly was not that big of a deal that I had to miss my show.  I don’t lose sleep over those things.  I just found it amazingly interesting that I finally am going to get to watch the show, basically , for free; I manage to get set and remember all week when it’s on and prepare for it and then, boom – life…

Just got news that Dad’s break is okay, no surgery needed…that’s great news.  I will, of course, buy the first episode on Amazon tonight and catch up.  Well, that’s the plan…

Namaste,

Scott
