Default Maybe a giggle or two.

Dear melissa,
ive got a great property for you. thehouse was built in 1907 i spent most of my life growing up there. my great aunt owned and then my dad. he si now in a nursing home and i have to sell. i need to do a few renos which i hate so i guess i 'll have to hire someone. they are just cosmetic but still i hate it that kind of stuff. it has all the original wood inside and 1800 square ft. it could be used for commercial or family property. the taxes are low only 786.00 and the house should sell for 70,000 canadian. you wouldnt be interested would you. i even have my freind who is a realtor that could set it up . i'm just kidding about all this but i do have to sell this property. my dad had many bills he left me with being pa which of course i didn't now about and he is imcompetant now so i cant even find out from him where he got some of the work done on the house. did i mention it has new siding and a new roof. ha ha. i'm soing to have a small estate sale because there are a few nice antique pieces and then of course all the appliances and junk. tim juices 3 times a day and carol has a recipe if you ned it. i dont know if tim is using that one or erics i just know there are a lot of beets in it because his lips are always a nice rosy pink. home care does this for him everyday and it takes him about 1 hour to get it all down. he also drinks a lot of ensure plus and that comes form the hospital free of charge. last time i was there we were waiting fo rthe nurse to come over and he has different ones all the time. this guy walks in and he has work clothes on which i thought was a bit odd but hey maybe he ahd a second job. any way tim andnow you have to remeber he has to put a lot of thought nad energy into this. he lifts his glass which has maybe less then an inch of ensure in it the glass is plastic with to handles one fo reach side so he can grab them and have the strength to bring it up to his mouth. this quite a process anyway me and my big mouth or maybe my lack of timing jsut as he gets it to his mouth and is aobut to swallow i say to this guy who hasnt said anything "i guess your not the home care nurse oops well this guy which i later find out is tims brother just starts to roar with laughter and tim couldnt control himself either and lost control and spit all the ensure all over himself. the look on his face was priceless as i'm typing this i'm laughing someone else may not think this is funny but its happened to everybody when someone says something funny and your just about to take a drink and you usually choke or spit it up but since this is such a hard task for tim it was silenced humor i guess. i tried cleaning him up and then he was a little pissed because he said he needed a shower and i said just change your clothes but the butter pecan ensure had gone right through to his private area. he didnt want me really wiping me off there so i said fine now your ensured! its definitly going to be a journey for me and tim because we both have a sense of humor mine is very dry and i do dumb things and take things very lightly. tim is very meticulous thats why when he got all sticky he was a bit upset but he loves my humor i just have to watch my timing. i forget about his disease because hes still tim to me. i see so many other people come over and they dont know what to do or say and i think it upsets us both. they dote on him so much and i wait and see if he can do what ever he trying to achieve and then i ask him if he needs help. he wants to be independent so i let him be as self sufficient as he can be because soon he wont be able to do these simple tasks. don't i sound like the caregiver from hell! tim doesnt have a will yet anyone out there know how i can approach him on this before he totally loses his speech. its going to be hard now trying to figure out what he is saying but people are asking me and i don't know what to say. i dont care what he does with his stuff. enough said.
anyone need some ensurance?
