I'm not sure if I should find it sad or humorous as I watch my grandpa's current cycles: As soon as it's bedtime- Get up... walk to bathroom, use bathroom. Go to kitchen make instant coffee (usually not hearing the kettle whistle and leaving it whistle); or getting a soda... then going to the livingroom and pushing buttons on the TV until he notices the screen comes on (always opening up the DVD player and pushing it back in. Then watches TV which he can't hear anyways for 10 minutes to an hour, then turning it off, going to the bathroom then back to bed; and 30 minutes to an hour later starting the process all over again repeatedly until it's morning. Then he stays asleep. Plus theres all the noises... sounds like heavy breathing all the time (though some people think he's constantly humming a tune), trying to dismantle things in his bedroom or pound nails in the wall to hang up a broken picture, natural bodily function noises which are quite noisy, loud groaning sounds when he stretches that you can hear across the house, and what sounds like him asking himself questions loudly in Philipino. I think I'm going to dislike getting old and not being able to do things as easily as before. I don't think he's enjoying it all that much. Some things he does are kind of funny, but it's also sad in that he's not the same as he used to be.
