Life Goes On...

Well, I've not been around much to do any updating over the long holiday weekend. I had to work all weekend, so I have really not done much of anything except work. I did get a bracelet made up at some point over the weekend, but have not taken any pictures yet. May have to get some pictures taken later on of this as well as some other pieces I have ready to go. I also need to retake some pics of some pieces that are listed on my Etsy site as they are terribly blurry. Wish me luck as the digital camera and I don't always get along. (This usually involves some name-calling on my part, followed by empty promises "If you will just take this one picture and not be blurry, I promise I will never call you names again...". It usually ends with tears and a great deal of frustration on my part...lol.)

Dad goes for a consultation to the Cleveland Clinic on Friday. This is where my frustration at not having a car comes into full swing. Dad lives an hour away from me and Cleveland is about a 2 hour drive. I cannot go with him to this appointment and I feel that I absolutely need to be there. This situation is so frustrating for me. Columbus is a hard enough town to get around in without a car - took me 2 1/2 hours to get within a 2-3 mile radius of my apt Fri night - on the bus line. Sad thing is that I only work about 5-6 miles from my house. They have started him on a med to try to slow the kidney failure as BUN levels sky-rocketed over the weekend - Friday level was 61 - today a 99. I believe normal levels for this are 10-20.

All righty then - off to attempt some pictures...lol. Perhaps if I have good luck, I will have some pictures to post to my blog later on today.

Hi, had to come back and see how things are going. Maybe you can give your dad a locket with your picture or something else to help him think of you. That way if you can't be there with him physically he'll have a something of yours with him. I know it sounds corny, but it might help to ease both of your anxieties even if it is just a tiny bit.
