A weekend in Indiana

I spent the last weekend in Indianapolis. The main purpose was to visit my grandparents, who are living in a retirement home. My grandmother is suffering from parkison's stage five. It was very sad to watch her suffer with this, but she was doing surprising well. My grandfather seemed to be suffering worse, just watching his wife fall apart. Every time I visited their retirement home, it was hard. And we spent a lot of time there each day.

I also got to see some other relatives in the area. My grandparents are on my mother's side, but everyone else I saw is on my father's side and they have their own problems. The high point for me was seeing my aunt and cousin on sunday afternoon, when I updated facebook for a moment. I wish I could of spent more time with them, but when I'm traveling with my mom, these things are really limited.

I also realized that I don't like flying in a plane. But if I have to fly across country like I just did, I want to sit in a window seat if I can.

The trip was good, even if I felt like I was stuck and couldn't do what I wanted most of the time. When I finally got home tonight, I went straight to a bar near my house. Some karaoke and booze diffidently helped.
