how cruel

October 19th, 2011 at 04:40 pm

As part of her blood clots mom was tested for sleep apnea recently and they found she quits breathing more that 2 hours every night. So she had to get oxygen yesterday. She slept with it last night, but didn't get a lot of sleep. She needs to get used to noise of the machine and the feel of the tubes.

My sister is out of town and my youngest niece was supposed to spend Sunday night with her father. They got into an argument and he told her she was a waste of air and he didn't want to see her again. How cruel! Even if he apologizes, she will never forget he said that to her. She's 17 and she called her mom crying and said she didn't want to stay with him overnight, so she stayed home by herself. She's more than old enough to do that, just not very reliable, so sister prefers to have her stay with someone. Mom offered, but niece wanted to stay by herself.

So last night parents and I took her to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Sister's was supposed to be home late last night. Mom, dad and I all ordered 6 oz sirloin medium well. Dad's and mine were closer to medium rare, so we waited and waited and waited for someone to come back and ask how the steaks were. By the time they did and we told them they were undercooked everyone else was done eating. So we just said we would take them home and cook them ourselves. They ended up giving us both steaks for free. So I just paid the tip and will have steak with green beans and mushrooms for dinner tonight. They are usually pretty good, we haven't had bad steaks in a long time there.

I finished reading the library book Jared by Sarah McCarty. Paranormal - very good.

    You are exactly right...kids never forget those hateful comments, no matter how old they are.

    It reminds me of the awful things that actor on 30 rock saId to his daughter...his name escapes me now. Oh, Alec Baldwin.

    These are the kinds of things that can lead people to feel adversely affected all of their lives in many cases, and there is no way to un-say them. My dear friend just had a long talk with her 84-year-old father, and he told her that the reason he was so distant was because of the hateful things his parents said to him as a child, and that he never was able to get over them. That broke my heart. It is so important to treat the people we love kindly now, because there is no insurance that we can go back to fix things later!
