The past ten days have been a real drag on my writing. My family and I spent the last week in the hospital waiting for my dad to pass on. It's amazing how tiring sitting and waiting for the inevitable can be. I spent the night in the hospital with him on Wednesday. I was planning on getting some writing done then I got 325 words written most of them gibberish. He finally passed away on Friday. Since then days have been filled with arrangements and houses have been filled with relatives. I have tried to do some writing but it's dragged.
Yesterday was the funeral. Today he is buried. So today my father is gone but I am trying to stay filled with hope. First my father is no longer suffering. Many many years with Alzheimer's disease made him a person he wouldn't want to be. Second, we have a new president. I am hopeful he will help lift the country up out of it's current situation. People view us as bomb first talk later. Hopefully that and the economy will now start to improve. It will be a long haul but I have faith things will improve. I am also certain my dad and ex-Marine would really like our new president.
Sorry for the ramble. With luck and bit of will power I will be back to writing tomorrow.
