Today was a beautiful day...and for once in a long time..I finally got on call from work. On call means..that I
was scheduled to work but we were low in patients so i got put on call..and would get called in if we got slammed
with admits. Lately that seems to happen alot anymore. Anyways..I decided to go to my parents.
We hung out..then they wanted to do there mulch. Dad did just one side of the house, and was getting hot and tired.
He did a little of the back side and was the same way. It made me realize that hes getting older and cant do it like
he use to. Was sad seeing him this way. My parents are the type who go go go. They still work full time then come
home and do work. Anyways I ended up taking over the scooping of mulch and putting it around stuff while he drove
me through the yard to the places that needed mulched. We went in after we were done and talked a little then dad
was out. Still always makes me laugh to see his sleep with his mouth wide open. Told mom i wonder how many bugs
he eats while he sleeps. As I was leaving I looked back at him and he was still sleeping that way.I told mom we wore
him out. She said he just doesnt have it in him like he use to...saying shes not sure if its just getting older..or from
having diabetes. Anyways it really has affected me today.
