Compared to everyone in my family, I'm really close to my grandma. I know that she already has had heart problems before (open heart surgery, twice). I also used to work for about 3 years helping out elderly people in their own homes, its another reason I'm close to my grandma.
My mom is almost always working (at her Hotel job) so I rarely get to see her, I work at evenings to nights. The only time I'm close to my uncle is during soccer tournaments. My younger brother and sister are almost all day playing on their PS3 so rare times I get to see them, mostly when my grandma makes food. So my main "soul companions" (as they say) besides my grandma are the pets: 3 cats and the ferret in my room, but ferret sleeps almost 15 hours a day, so when she's out we play. At least my grandma isn't alone in her room, she has 3 parakeets she got for her birthday.
I know I should continue - for the last 3 days I sort of gave the DS a rest, as I been watching soccer games on tv, and mostly work - and Pokemon forums took up the other times I had. I will continue my games maybe Tuesday, I have work tomorrow, I'm helping my grandma paint her room.
Not too worry. I'm exhausted (on July 11th-12th) went to a soccer game (actually 2 in one day - Gold Cup double header match) - after getting home, I had to go to work, not too fun since I walked a lot up and downstairs at the stadium and getting home, I had to walk up a hill - then at work, I had to go up and down stairs. To me its really worth it, I don't get to go to many games often!
Aside from that, I'm started a personal challenge in a new copy I bought of Pokemon Black, an "All Water Team" - I will use 6 different water type Pokemon I like and try to defeat Elite 4 and Champ.
For last, like many other PokeFans, I'm eagerly awaiting the releases of Pokemon X&Y.
