I'm blaming the rain on the fact that Dad left and took his good weather mojo with him.
(May the fleas of a thousand camels infest his armpits.)
It was great to hang out with him all weekend and let someone else fuss over Grandmother. We very nearly had to take her to urgent care because she was dehydrated and getting woozy but when I whispered sweet nothings like "hospital" and "nursing home" into her ear she managed to get enough liquids down to keep herself at home. Apparently elderly people do not get thirsty so it's common for them to become dehydrated very rapidly.
Now I just holler DRINK, DAMMIT into her ear every hour or two. You know, a friendly little reminder.
But while Dad was here he got Grandmother duty which is nice because it lets me off the hook a little bit and she is in a wonderful mood for at least two weeks before and two weeks after his visit so she'll be a ray of sunshine for a little while. Hopefully.
After I dropped him at the airport I realized that I took zero pics while he was here so the pic I was going to post doesn't exist. I'll try to do better next time. I really wanted a pic of him and Grandmother but worrying about her health drove it right out of my head. Next time for sure.
Now I have to get in the canoe and paddle to school, maybe I can catch a salmon swimming across the freeway...
