In terms of scrapbooking, I'm catching up with some of the quiz challenges that were issued at Scrapbook Centrale. I am quite behind, since I decided that I would do both Patrick and I. It will be a nice memory down the road I think. Tomorrow I am going to Alex's to scrapbook, yay!
On Sunday we went to visit my grandfather's grave, which we haven't done in probably 5 years or more (at least I haven't anyways). We took some pictures, which my uncle insisted was a little morbid. I suppose it is, but at the same time it is celebrating my grandfather's life.
Today there are baby birds in my backyard!! We think they are baby cardinals, because the bright red father is feeding them. I just looked it up and apparently it's the father that feeds them while the mother builds new nests. Look how cute the baby is:
Also, my dad has started taking anti-depressants because he has been incredibly down for the past few months. We have tried a lot of different things, but he just has zero motivation to do things unless we force him to. We hope that the pills can cut down the anxiety and help him start feeling better. Of course we were apprehensive at first, but I think this is what's needed to give him the extra push. It has been heartbreaking and extremely draining to watch him in this negative state for the past little while, and now we realize that something's gotta give. So we are trying the pills and keeping our fingers crossed for improvement. I don't expect a miracle drug, but I'm hoping it can at least help him have some interest and motivation. My mom is on vacation for 2 weeks, so that is also helping to lift his spirits a little bit. Just one day at a time...
