As promised I will tell you about jello, McDonalds and Daddy.
He is doing okay he misses Mom so much....her dog misses her too. She has a little white hairy dog. She is going deaf I think...I need to take her to the groomers because she can't see through all that hair.
It became my duty this weekend to let her out side. I took her out the front and she walked all along the edge of the yard....she knows her boundarys.
She expects a treat when you bring her inside....
My Dad hasn't been eating very much. All he wants is jello.
He asked me to make him some so I go to the cabinet and find boxes.....
black cherry 1
I said what kind do you want? Heres the flavors you have....and I read each flavor from the box....after listing all his choices he says...GRAPE
um not listed :) I said do you want me to go buy you some grape jello? He said no how about apple...um....let me tell you again the flavors available LOL
He couldn't decide between strawberry and black cherry so I made both. I cut up some fresh fruit....read the box...it has been years since I made jello.
After mixing it all together I hear....is it ready yet? um no it has to um gel.....I convinced him to take a nap and told him it would be ready when he woke up.
After his nap I gave him some of the strawberry one...he took a bite and then asked me to put some sugar on it.....I brought him a package of sugar thinking he could just sprinkle it on a little....he poured the whole packet on it....about 3 tablespoons of jello.....He ate half.
At least he ate some I guess......
MCDonalds....this morning I asked him what he wanted for breakfast...He said how about some pancakes from McDonalds?
I said well would you like me to make you some homemade pancakes?
No I really want McDonalds and could you go to the bank on the way it is on......_____street. And I have a library book that needs to be returned....Ok so I will go to get your breakfast and then I will go do that for you I say....
Well I can wait can you go do that first and then get me some pancakes? You will need to hurry because they quit serving breakfast at a certain time..
Ok so I go make myself half way presentable....don't want to cause any accidents people looking at the ugly lady driving the car makeupless.
I go to the bank on _____street and there is no bank by that name anywhere....I call Mom at the hospital and she told me where the bank was....a totally different street.
Then I make it to the bank and the guy tells me he can't cash the check because I don't have an account there....I explain the situation and with my proof of id cashes it for me.
Off to return the library book I gotta hurry to make it to McDonalds before they quit serving pancakes.
I make it just in time...order the pancakes and head home.
I get home and give Dad his pancakes and a cup of coffee.
I look over and he is not eating...
Dad....what's wrong? don't you want to eat your pancakes?
And he says....Well that's the thing about McDonalds. Once you get it home it is too cold.
So I say....would you like me to heat it up for you?
I heat it up and set it before him..
I look.........nope still not eating.
Dad....are you going to eat your pancakes?
And he says....I would like some jelly on them.
Ok so I put the jelly on them....his favorite.
still not taken one bite and the coffee has not been drank either.
Dad? You aren't going to eat your pancakes are you?
He smiles and says....probably not.
He took 0 bites of the pancakes.
Lady comes by that cleans the house....brings him some jello...He eats all of it....
I am trying :) Hopefully his appetite will pick up soon.
