RIP Bill Walsh

It's a sad day in Niner land. Our beloved former coach/football guru Bill Walsh passed away Monday morning at the age of 75 after battling leukemia since 2004.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Walsh family, and all 49ers fans on this very mournful day.

RIP, Bill....we will always remember you.

7/23 Sunrise/Clouds

Some shots of the clouds and sunrise on Monday morning:

I like this shot...you can see the streaks of rain coming out of the clouds, but it never made it to the ground that morning:

Just When You Let Your Guard Down....

.....the ugly Imposter rears its ugly head again. Mom has been for the most part pretty calm....except for Friday morning before I left for work, and all day today. She woke up this morning asking where we were, and snickered when I said we are at home. She then began to ask me if I was ashamed of myself....uh, for WHAT? She said, "For joining in with all of these people." She evidently sees people who aren't 'good'...that they have come here to raise hell and terrorize us.

So all day she has been very snippy with me, and has secluded herself from me, and pulled away from me when I try to help her. I asked her after dinner why she was mad at me...and she claimed that we don't have a relationship and we never have. I must be her sister again. When she gets like that, she seems to think that I'm her sister Betty. They didn't have a good relationship when Betty was alive, and she's called me Betty a few times. So she must be transposing her feelings toward Betty onto me. Just f*cking great.

Thank God tomorrow is Monday. There isn't enough money in the world that would make me stay around this 24/7!

If anyone has left comments for me on MySpace....I'm not ignoring you...I CAN'T GET ACCESS with this damn wireless router! Trying to get the damn thing figured out has been a pain in my ass! First, I couldn't access my AOL mail, my Yahoo mail, but I could get onto my MySpace page. Now, after reading about how to set up for DSL modems, I can get my AOL and Yahoo mail, but now I can't access MySpace!!!!!!!!!!

GRRRRR!! If anyone has any suggestions for how to best utilize a Linksys WRT54GS with SpeedBooster router so I can access ALL websites...please help! I've even tried going to my control panel, and doing the internet options but still no avail!

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes...both here and on MySpace! I received a gift card from dad and mom, so I went to get a couple of docking things for my iPod..one for home and one for work. Cool!

And here's a couple of sunrise pics from Monday:

More Random Pics

Just some random pics from this week:

Pretty sunrise on 7/6:

Sunrise on 7/10:

The rays breaking through the clouds at sunrise on 7/11:

Ducks? Geese? These little guys swim around in the ponding basin close to my office. Michael! What kind of birds are these??

This guy was coming in for a landing on the water of that ponding basin:

And Mom? She's recovering from the heart attack, but her mind is still bad. She still gets blazing pissed at one wrong word. So that aspect hasn't changed one bit.

I just about died when I checked my cell phone bill for last month! All those phone calls and texts I sent out during her hospitalization sent me over my anytime minutes, and my alloted text messages....my bill was $92!! So I have upped my text messaging to unlimited, and I'm going to change my minute plan. 300 Anytime minutes just ain't cuttin' it!

New Toy

Another new toy....I figured since I was just sitting on the couch earlier this week with mom, just watching TV....I'd go buy one of these so I could keep up with everything....AND get some of my time back:

HP Pavilion dv6345 Notebook....so, I like it. Trying to get used to not having a mouse...although I did buy one the same day...I just haven't plugged it in yet. Call me silly, but I wanted to do something for me.

Mom had been doing VERY WELL from Friday to Tuesday evening....no outbursts whatsoever. But when I came out of my bath Tuesday evening, she went off the rails for a few minutes. She thought she had taken too much medication, and was balking at taking her Seroquel. She finally took it, and calmed down.

Wednesday afternoon, she went back to the bathroom by herself (refused to let me go with her), so I went about cleaning up after dinner, vacuuming. I took the laundry back to her bedroom about 10 mins later and she was leaning against her dresser. I asked what was wrong, and she said she fell in the bathroom.

Dad came in a few minutes later after I got her sitting down on the bed, and I told him she said she fell - and that she walked back without her walker. He told her she shouldn't be without her walker, and she got PISSED. She was cussing at us both until she took her shower. I went with her and tried to explain to her that we are just concerned about her well being, and that we want her here. I tried to paint dad in a good light, and told her he almost broke down several times when she was in the ER. She finally said that he was a good man, but that she doesn't like being talked to the way he talks to her. Hmmm...how about the way YOU talk to US???

She was ok until about 8:30, when she got up and said that one of the dogs was out by the fence. No, they are all locked in on the patio. That set her off again, and she was awake almost all night talking to herself, wandering around and fiddling with her damn bed.

*sigh* You let your guard down, and get slapped in the face. THANK GOD I'm going back to work today!
