Grandma in Action!

So today was an outing is my hip new styling grandma! I say styling to the fact that everyone in school these days are going to be wearing pajamas wherever they go. Simple to that. And hip for being in hospitals and caring home because... Maybe because I've been. We've got a special connection! Ha so I joked with Heather because she only has seen grandma twice in the caring home and once in the hospital, so the teasing section of the day was on her..unfortunately. I'm a teaser, my uncle taught me fairly well.
So we took grandma out to the car..YES, we were kidnapping her. Ha so we took her to her a Doctor like person, an old family friend, (I don't know if she wants me to advertise for her). So we spent like 2 hours or so there. I was mostly in the car, listening to the radio station. I knew like "Bleeding Love" trying to do the -So You Think You Can Dance- and surprisingly I did pretty well due to the fact that I haven't seen the dance in so long! I was impressed.
Afterwards we took her to the Arroyo's Cafe. That was the whole point we kidnapped her. It was a actually pretty good, I was surprised.
Once the food area was destroyed, we headed back to the Hotel and/or Spa aka Care Home, and chilled there. Mom and Heather left to do their errands and I stayed with Grandma like I was wanted to do this past week (while she was in the "hotel"). I only wanted to be with my Grandma to relax and do homework. Just being there was awesome. We took a little cat nap, or I did, she was really sleeping. But I woke up to the "Girls Laptop" and my history book. Obviously I took the laptop. I am very proud of my Blog, and so is my Mom. She was the one who told her.
So I was trying to get all set up. Getting the Internet service and Music started. Well I was interrupted by the ... PHYSICAL THERAPIST! DON! Don! don! ... She wanted to wake Grandma up and everything. I explained it to her that Grandma has been out all morning, shaking all day and sleepy the whole time. I was making excuses! Grandma needs her rest. Unfortunately she lucked out and the therapist woke her up. She even needed made some excuses. But they took her away!
I told my coolio Grandma "I'll be here when you come back!" She is such a trooper.
Later on my mom came and picked me up so that I can go home and help out my Pop with the laundry. But after chores and such, we went back to visit grandma and she was with an old friend of hers. I haven't seen her laugh like that in a long time. Remembering old memories. Laughing bout the changes. Having a Gay Ole' Time. It was great to see that. So I let them have their time and so I went out and played their Baby Grand Piano. It was a beauty. So I played that for quite a bit. And let me tell you! I have a pretty bad memory that I can't even remember my favorite songs! But eventually we had to go. I went and got my things, said my goodbyes and left the room.
I've noticed this Lady. Always sitting out in the halls. Ever since Grandma first day there, I've seen her and always say hi. Tonight she actually said something like "Tomorrow. when you come, your going to bust me out har har". It was really cute and everything.
I tend to think as I look at them, how they were when they were a teenager. How they acted, or played game, flirted, dated, and all that. I want to hear their war stories if they have any, or how they met their husbands. Just those simple things that could make their day. I want to be the one who makes their day and Be's there for them since none of their family come and visits. I want that. I want make them feel loved. That would be a great activity.

Never forget the moments you have with your loved ones. Never know if its your last.

Begining of a New Life

So recently, more like a month, I was diagnosed with Epilepsy Seizures. And my goodness it is a workout! You lose all these calories when you tighten up. Surely sore afterwords. Its like going to the gym without the equipment and money, unless the ambulance is involved.

So anyway, when I was diagnosed, I probably didn't realize how bad it was. All I knew was the fact I'll probably doing this on a monthly basis. Boy! Was I wrong. I started to take the medicine and I had one everyday! I truly think that medicine was causing the seizures and My doctor just wanted the money. That's not something that would really happen but you never know.

So I had them more frequently then ever. I started to have headaches all the time and was sore to the bone! I missed seminary all the time due to the fact I had them whenever I was there. I even had one during class! Man, that story is a hoot! Lets just say, there was evacuation for the class, shockers, and sore arms.

I realized that I was slowly having the most boring life that I never had. I was losing my freedom! No school. No seminary. No visiting friends (unless they came or my mom came with). My privileges were slowing disappearing right before my eyes.

But then I thought, why should I wallow over my loses. Its not like I cried everyday, or I would exclude my family because they could be the problem. I would crack jokes when I can. Just because your lonely or no one is even bothering to stop by or call, doesn't mean your life is going down the drain, it just means that... Your social life is going down. Mine sure did.

The only thing that I was having the most problems with was the fact that I was losing my friends. I more was having questions over our friendship. I thought

-"Why are they not visiting me. Not even seeing me when I'm in the hospital. Am I freaking them out just because I can die right in front of them? Is that stopping them because it sure wouldn't stop me. I'd be cracking jokes with them when there's an opening."-

It was a hard time for me. A couple breakdowns. Headaches. No big deal. But now I know that my friends love me. There for me when I need them, unless there in Oklahoma for a wedding, or Maryland because their dad got a job, or even for college, would be there with a phone call or text, either way, their there.

Never give up when you think your life is going down the drain. Just think, I know someone love me. The man upstairs.

About Me. Specifics.

Hello Yall. So my Info Area is not working for me. So My first blog is my info, might delete soon.

Interest- _Life is definately important. Also Friends. Love. Life. Happiness.

About Me- _I'm actually Alicia. I love my friends and family. My friends have been with me through so much. I lose some, I gain. Part of Life.
I actually, with inspiration, created this Blog from a great friend, Katie.Epilepsy is strong. This is just an update and helpful I'll try to keep it as exciting as possible for you.

Movies- _I'm in LOVE with the movie Mamma Mia! with Meryl Streep. I saw that movie with Sister Boghram. Funny story actually.You see, the opening night was the same night as the Batman Premiere. I really didn't want to go, but I have 2 loving siblings who wanted me too. I ordered pizza from there. That was fun, but not the point sorry. Anyway, it was a singles outing. Sister Boghram is married to one of the couselors. She didn't want to see it either. So I decided to see Mamma Mia! instead. I was singing the ABBA songs to excite me. She asked if I was going to see it instead, ofcourse I said yes. She wanted to join me! It was SO much fun. But yes, I love that movie. I dig the Musicals, Comedies, but definately not action. TOO loud. I only watch scary movies during Halloween season or when I'm with my "Scary Movie Movie Night" posse.

Music- _I was really raised around country music which has been a blessing. I absolutely love it! I know most of the songs when I listen to Kat Kountry (Yes, thats how the station speels it).Lately though I have been listening to POP like KHOP 95.1 for some reason. It's actually one of the rare stations I can get in my room. But mainly Country and Pop. I'm Anti-Rap-Metal-Hard Rock. I have to get used to RAP though due to the fact its everywhere.

Books- _As any teenage girl, I'm a Twilight reader. Pro-Edward - Equality- Jacob.It was the only book I could relate to. Heather, my sister, had me read it out of force. She related it to me. Long story. Not enough room.So I like Twilight and Murder Mystery Books. only read one but I dug it.

Questions/Quotations- _?_Well, I've alway wondered. Why do they have a stain remover. I thought that stains are what you can't remove. So you have fake stains? How so? Hmm.
