If I had the money, I’d have a facility built to my specifications, oh yes I would. It would have an extra room for family members to hang out in, and perhaps a game room. And I’d make sure my elderly friends had rooms of their own. And there would be resident nurses and doctors on hand – the best money might buy. Oh yeah and I’d have culinary geniuses on hand.
You never know. We shall see. For now, I need to focus on keeping myself in good mental and physical condition. I have fallen off the exercise wagon while here, but I hope soon to climb back on. I will do better at this once I get home. It’s lifestyle choices – and my being here isn’t conducive to staying physically fit.
I’m trying. Tonight I went for a walk—I go for a walk once a day. I went to a nearby park and watched a Little League game and spent some time in the dog park. I also took a nap today. I didn’t sleep last night, even though we went to bed late. We watched several videos. Took our minds off our troubles.
El and I also went back to the seafood restaurant and ordered the clam bucket, which we spilt. The wait staff was dismissive because this was all we ordered.
I am tired, and hope to sleep well tonight. The constant refrain in my head is that I want to go home, now.
