I Said Hi to My Brother

So, I don’t know if this is weird or normal. ¬†Actually there are several parts of this story that I don’t know if they are weird or normal, but we are to focus on my actions today!

Have I shared that Grandpa has moved in with mom and dad?

He and I like to go run errands, so my Instagram is frequently littered with pictures of us out and about! It’s fun and he doesn’t mind taking a selfie! It kinda cracks me up how as soon as I pull out my phone to take a picture he leans in and smiles ūüôā

For those not aware, I work from home. ¬†I have a great boss and it’s a wonderful company, very small and very high tech. ¬†We all share information on our cloud, and when you call our toll free number and pick an extension, it is routed to our cell phones. ¬†It’s taken me many years to work my way to this spot and every couple of days I remember to give thanks for the blessing!

My dad also works from home. ¬†(His home, not mine.) So he is able to be here (there) for Grandpa, who due to a couple of health reasons can’t live on his own. Dad was called out of town for work this week. ¬†So I get up early, come over to mom and dad’s armed with my laptop and phone and at 6:30 am mom and I trade off. ¬†She goes to work and I set up at their dining room table. ¬†Usually about 8 am Grandpa is ready to get up and so I’ll have breakfast made, he gets up, we eat, hang out, he watches TV in the living room while I work, it’s been pretty easy to get into a routine.

What trail do you follow when you lose a Grandpa? I follow the oxygen at Did That Just Happen Blog

The other day I posted on IG: Oxygen, the giver of life. ¬†Also the trail I follow when I hang up from a work call and I’ve lost Grandpa.

Today I had breakfast ready to go and heard him stirring. ¬†I went in, helped him get untangled and he said he wanted to rest a bit more. ¬†An hour later, I checked again – he still wasn’t quite ready to get up… Okay, a bit concerned but not worried.

Finally at 10:30, he was ready to get up; however, he didn’t feel well. ¬†Wanted some Pepto. ¬†He even pushed away his breakfast plate! So, off I went.

I wasn’t sure mom and dad had any of that pink liquid, but I went through the medicine drawer. ¬†Then I went through the medicine cabinet upstairs. ¬†Then I broke down and called mom to see if I had missed looking somewhere while I searched for some peppermint tea as a back up.

Mom goes “Upstairs in the wardrobe where we keep the Little’s clothes, there is some medicine left over from Lee, he might have had some.”

I found the medicine, but no pretty pink liquid.

And then I looked up, patted a box and said “Hi Lee!” and walked out.

Is that weird? It didn’t hit me what I did until I was walking away and then I was like, huh. ¬†Yeah, that just happened.

Most of the time when I’m in that area, it never occurs to me that Lee, technically, is right there… and I can’t say I’ve ever said hi to him… so either my life is evolving – or things got weird ūüôā Let me know. ¬†But if the answer is weird, I’m already prepared to blame a lack of sleep!

That moment when you talk to yourself and you start smiling like an idiot because you are just so hilarious
