Been thinking of the Green Day song today.
September has just been one big blur since I found out on August 31st that my dad was back in the hospital and it looked like a new brain tumor.
Only worked my 3rd day this month at work, most was on a FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) unpaid absence.
So thought of the song. Checked out YouTube. Didn’t love any of the versions but still going to post the best one at the end. Ended up looking up the version with U2 that I love. Then I linked to their new Uno album (seemed ok from the samples) and then 21st Century Breakdown (probably would have bought if didn’t have $40 in the bank account). And then ended up listening to John Denver of all things on my iTunes.
Strange how my mind works.
But, happy to be back in Maine. Happy my dad is in rehab, and doing little things like brushing his teeth in the sink, eating lunch at a table and using the bathroom (albeit with a hoist).
I hope his left side keeps improving, and that October is much better than September.
Month moved so fast that the sun setting at 7pm totally confuses me.
2012 has been a tough year. I hope my dad sees 2013, at least some of it.
