Poor?

It was not until I moved out on my own that I knew I was poor. When I was a kid - it never mattered to me one bit. I made my own toys and now I look back on that and would not change it. For a time I made good money and I was a drinker (but not a drunk) and wanted to fight the world. Then I became disabled and I was taught what life was all about once more. Now I find it hard to make the money last, but the good times with good friends are always here. I see the rich and I think, "do they know who they are"?

I tip my hat to you :)

Well most people that know me or read this blog know I don't like the union thing much. But I have to say that the folks that look after Mom are top notch. The one did not know how to put on her regulator and I thought that odd... But I then realized that most people don't think like me and it is not obvious to say the least. There are a lot of things I tend to find easy that most people don't. Then again there are things that others do I don't get at all. We are all different after all.

They are so friendly there and they are so caring. It's so much not like the one ward mom was on in the hospital... But that too seemed to get fixed after I did a vlog and a blog post on it and someone sent it to the hospital :) Ya know, I know it's hard when your busy some days to show the love - but it is important. These people where Mom is do show the love :)

People see them standing there (and I was one of them) at the nurses station and say, "why don't they go do something"? Well communication is the key in their job, and there it is - communicating.

So what am I saying here? We all mess it up and we all get it wrong. But if your willing to say, "I got it wrong" then your above most...

One nurse found this blog and she did not seem to impressed to me... I wonder why? Well - when you share everything you think, sometimes people get pissy with you.

To change topics - Mom seems to be talking to others in there now. I think the staff sent them her way and I thank them for doing it. She has her TV set up now and likes to watch the news. They get a deal on cable there so it's not that much for I think 50 channels or so. Oh and speaking of TV... I got her a 32inch HD TV for $298. That was a good deal - I was looking at the smaller ones and my friend pointed me over to the 32inch. It was a bit less. That was cool.

I am so happy that she is happy there for the most part. Some days she will be not so happy and be not so able to understand things. This is the nature of what is wrong with her. But she is in no pain. Thank God for the no pain part. I see her almost every day and at night she calls me. I will so miss that call of hers to say good night one day. But this is where she needs to be, they are keeping her health. She can't get all the help she needs at home, it's not possible.

So to end this, "hugs to all the staff that keep my Mom healthy and relatively happy" :)

Can you forgive?

Most of the time a bully will forget who they hurt. It is so unimportant to them that it vanishes from their mind. But your right - if we dwell on things then it's just us we hurt. A few people in our circle got into that chain of thought and it split us. Now most have moved on and made up and are friends once more. But a few still harbor that pain and they won't let it go. It's sad to me that we do bad things to each other, but it is more sad when we can't move past it and just live free of that bad moment in time. A person will hurt us once and we will hurt ourselves many times holding on to the anger.

Live For The Day...

Defender Of Human Rights


Welcome to Canada, land of the free and defender of human rights all over the world. You can see how we stand for the rights of all people just by looking around. But wait, do not look at the First Nations peoples communities, for if you do you will see an atrocity in the making. Many of them have no or little education facilities. Many of them live in hosing that rivals the third world in lack of safety. Many of them do not have enough money to feed their children proper food. The gangs are out of control and taking the futures of youth away on mass. What does our great leader Stephen Harper do when he hears about this? He starts to condemn the same people that his government and many other governments before it have failed in so many ways. Yes I am a white person and can’t fully understand the problem as I am removed from it. But I have to speak up and be heard as we all have to be. This is important and there needs to be changes for the sake of a people who are becoming lost. Speak up now!

Mom Update.


So have not done a blog in ages. I have done a tone of videos over on YouTube, but not a blog. So here it is.

Well Mom is not in a care home here in town. She is settled in and as happy as she is going to be. She does not seem to want to get to know some of the others there or to go to the activities room. I wish she would go do things; she would have a much better time that way. They did crafts from what I saw yesterday – I could be wrong. I love crafts myself and I know she would enjoy herself if she just got over this need of hers to be alone. It started when Dad died 19 years ago and she never got over it. There are lots of nice people her age in my building and she used to live here as well. She never really got to be friends with any of them. She missed out.

But she is well and I know for a fact she would have been in the hospital again or worse if she was not in the care home. She did not take care of her meds well when she was home. I tried to do it for her but she would not let me. I also tried to get her a pill organizer and she would not have any part of it. She had the habit of doing things she should not be doing as well, like cleaning the place by herself. She knows that a friend of mine would have done it for $15 but there she was doing it.

The staff at the home are great people and seem to care a lot. They do the best job they can and I do think there could stand to be more of them. Then again the same can be said for the hospital as well. I had some complaints about the hospital to say the least in the past, but it has shaped up a lot in my mind. There is still that one lady in charge there on the medical floor that rubs me the wrong way. But then again she saw what I had to say about here.

I heard one person say that the place Mom is in was in bad shape. Well it’s dinged up a bit, but that is going to happen. People run into things with their chairs and carts and so on. It will happen so nothing to complain about there I say. If you paint it all fresh it will be scraped up in no time. The phone lines though are not good. I have to bitch about that here. They are not the right wire and from what I am told the room that had the board in it that all the wires come to is scary LOL. I know an installer and he tells me that it’s a mess in there and could stand to be replaced and modernized. This is not going to happen to say the least. No money for that. So Mom gets a distorted sound now and then and it’s from a bad connection or noise getting into the line. I am sure there is no filtration on the lines there. Oh well, if I hang up and call back it usually goes away.

The people there seem to be nice – the residents that is. Well most of them, there was this one grumpy guy – but you will get that. Lots of smiles to be had there though. I seen this one lady with this plush toy that looks like a sunflower and man she loved that thing. This is so nice to see, people should be happy and most of them seem to be to me. I am sure it is boring though, it has to be. But if it keeps up with the nice weather I am going to push Mom outside for some air.

We went shopping last week and she loved it. She got 3 tops and 2 pants for $58 so not bad there and they look good. I got her some undies the next day as well. I also got her a nice set of ear rings. I ordered her a thing that you can clip on your ears and hang the normal ear rings off of. This will let get have newer styles and so on as she does not have pierced ears.

Well this is long enough so I think I am going to sign off. Besides it’s almost time to go see Mom again. I go almost every day. The thing about being on disability that is good is I can do that. The bad thing is $200 a month for food – sigh. Oh well, I get by well enough. I have cable TV and internet after all. If I could not feed myself well, I would not have cable to say the least.

Oh one last thing. I used my air miles to get a couple of gift cards for Rexall. I got a bunch of stuff and still have $36 on the cards. I got Mom some tooth paste and a new tooth brush, but there were no pins for her there. She wanted pins for her pants that are too big. Some day we will take her shopping again and with luck we can get her more pants and get rid of the bid ones. She needs more tops as well and a blazer, she wants one.

Peace and have a good one – Dave.
