Tomorrow I must remember to say outloud “rabbit, rabbit” a family tradition that we are sure that, said first thing, will give us good luck all month. I surely hope so…
The weekend was wonderful, good friend a’visiting and watching Joshie in the Honors Band symphony, looking handsome and proud. I like the smaller version of the Whaley family because it holds so much potential now and I think Beth & her 3 sons will make such a healthy set.
Altho exhaused, visiting, having my mouse working (whoopee), watching great movies is always perfect.
I don’t know if others with FTD have speech abnormalities, but I find if I am trying to make a point with strong emotion or conviction, my mind clears out the clutter, slows down and I “…speak …like …this” – slowly, with pauses. This is new over the last few months. And of course some days I can’t stop jabbering.
The last few days were interesting as I added new words ever unspoken to my vocabulary. The only one I now remember is, upon seeing a sparkling kitchen, I said out loud, ‘this is magicifically!” or something to that effect.
Perhaps I am finally remembering toddler Nick’s language he had with his invisible friend, Acusina. Wonder if I will soon be able to see him, too.
All for this day. Remember, anytime after midnight, and first words off your lips “Rabbit, rabbit”.
