Cue the music, I have a special guest star on Coolmom today: My big sister Carole! Carole is a delight and I’ve always wanted her to have a blog as she writes like a modern day Dorthy Parker. We shot this a couple of weeks ago (as I haven’t been shooting any yuck, yucks just yet). The week my dad died Carole and I hung out together a lot. It really helped to be able to speak to someone who felt exactly the same way. Then Carole left for a long planned trip to Italy with her family and my other sister Cecily came back to town and I had her to lean on. Phew.
Anyway, Carole is a fun person and I thought she would be fun to play with here. Will this be the only vid she is in? Only Just one? We’ll see.
So, I’m thinking that maybe my vlogs should be fitting more with my blog post..as in what is happening in my life right now. Which is I am thinking of my dad non stop. The only times when my grief is distracted is when I space out to DIY or HGTV. Somehow remodeling shows distract me for awhile. My kids are a huge comfort to me, but I also think “Oh, I wish you had more time to know my dad, he loved you guys.” Or I say to Rex, “Is it too late to rename you John Carl?”
This is a video of when my dad’s condition was starting to get worse. He was taken to the ER (for no good reason at the time). I didn’t like seeing him poked and prodded. He was still with it mentally, but he was getting pooped.
Love you daddy.
