Today, Nick is 57. Daddy would have been 81. I hate not being able to spend time with either of them.
I wasn’t really planning to go out for long today. Neither Mom or I needed to shop, so I slept late. I forgot I was out of Coke Zero… and I needed gas in the car. Mom wanted to go to The Dollar Tree… thought I could get my soda there… Nope. Then she says she was going to ask if we could go to Saratoga, to visit Dad’s grave for his birthday. Okay, not a problem. Wish she’d brought it up before we left the house, since I left my smokes home. We stopped on the way up for flowers, and my soda. Stopped on the way down for McDonald’s, and went and ate in the park. Now I need to do laundry.
