I tried to call my Dad today at the nursing home. He was in pretty bad shape. He was mumbling so badly that I couldn't understand anything he said. All I was able to understand is that people are dying around him (pretty normal for a nursing home, right?) and I feel he is worried he's going to die. I've never known his speech to be so poor. I feel April and I will be cleaning out his home by summer. There's no way he's in any shape to go home, ever.

This also means no more money for me from him. That's $200 less per month so I'll be skimping to make ends meet.

Went into the City to get my mail. Had to take the bus down to BART because it was raining, but it stopped when I got back so I was able to walk from BART into work. I have a cold sore and stopped at Pac N Save and bought Abreva and Airborne.

I feel so fat. *sigh* Gotta lay off on the diet sodas. They seem to bloat me. Hopefully tomorrow I can go to the gym.
