One week...

Apparently my uncle only has one week left. He's still conscious (at least when I last saw him 3 days ago). But he can't speak. He's got Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. His legs are frozen folded. And he can't eat. But why did they bring up the "quit feeding" idea? OK maybe my news isn't up to date and he lost consciousness or something... I don't have the guts to ask, though. Last discussion was, whether to give him a feeding tube or not. If so, it would be for one week only. At the end it's all the same. Isn't it starving a person to death? Doesn't it sound wrong? Well, I'm not close to him, but my mom is upset. Not as bad as my aunt, of course. She's aged so much taking care of her ill husband. Sigh... Didn't think this whole thing would affect me too much, but nevertheless it does. To be honest, I've been avoiding visiting him. His condition does look scary. And I don't know what to say. It's clear that he won't be getting too much better. I don't know how much he's suffering, but for sure my aunt is. Hmm... I'm not good at dealing with such situations. Reality seems to have warped a little.

Playmobil glass

This is from a Japanese blog. There is an inner core inside the glass where you put the figurine in. As you drink, the figurine pokes his head out looking at you. (^_^)

This one isn't ramen. It's soba. The coffee is in the soba.

This one, the coffee is in the soup.

This, chilled coffee ramen with ice-cream.

Went to the dentist for a cleaning. I need a molar capped but that's gonna be over a thousand bucks. Another one needs new filling. Another hundred-and-fifty. With my minimum wage part time job, it's not gonna happen soon. Sob sob sob...

Snow in March / Pinky

Around 7 A.M.
Aaaaaargh!!! It's March already! March 1st and it snowed! Yikes! Luckily it didn't stick. The sun even came out and only patches of the white stuff were left on lawns by mid morning. It's supposed to snow again tonight, though. The forecast says it won't stick either. It's gonna be 8 degrees in the afternoon.
Yesterday I started helping out at a doll house accessory artist. The tiny furniture are made of real wood! Everything is soooo neat! Like these tea pots, which are perfect size for Pinky! These are resin, but there are also porcelain ones with removable lids.
