We have a grocery store in town that occasionally has flowers for a discounted price. I have been hitting the jack-pot there all week. Runuculus and snap dragons for $1.00 a bunch! Are you kidding me? I picked some up and brought them to my grandmother this morning on my way home from working out. She seemed very pleased, but overall sad. She told/asked me if she could get out of the nursing home and go back to her old place which was assisted living. She didn't like it there, and begged to go to a nursing home. She continues to thrive and simultaneously hate her existence. My grandmother is depressed, physically healthy, and stuck. Stuck in a nursing home, stuck in this realm and only beginning, at 94 to lose her mind. I think that sometimes mindlessness may not be such a bad thing. It is so sad. Sad, sad, sad. I tried to set her up a little schedule for the day. Recently she has given up reading, something she has loved her whole long life. We picked out a book for her to start, I got her an xanaxx from the nurse and then I wrote down the time and channel of the Oscar's Red Carpet show for her to watch in the eve. Hopefully she will.
