Sometimes it is really hard to keep the spirits up when your mate is seldom in good spirits. It is difficult to be upbeat all the time and I do not want to lose my good feeling about how much better I am just because the non-hairy human is always negative. The hairy one that thinks he is human is needing his ears cleaned. That will add to the tensions because Joe never thinks I do it right. From the minute I joined him for my breakfast he has contradicted most of what I said. Don’t know what to do with him or what to do without him. He does not want me to drive even though they told me I could drive after a week. I need to get flowers for Alan’s grave and I want to go out before Memorial day. He has not answered me when I asked him if I could go get them. You know, I guess the reason you never get reconciled about a child’s death is because that child is with you for 9 months before he makes it into this world, then you are responsible for him the rest of his life, in a way. Alan was single, so if he had a relationship problem, he talked to me. He was painfully shy when he started kindergarten. So I would try to give him extra support. We were so close as he grew older. The Navy helped him gain confidence. To put it simply had I been able to take the MS from him I would have. He didn’t deserve it. He could find happiness in the simplest things in life. That is my son in a small part of his life.Sorry for the downer, I just should not have written today. Tomorrow may be better.
