I'm taking a break from searching for articles today. We are just going to have an old fashioned update Sunday.
Last week was great. I do think I tired Mom out. The week started out with a nice dinner last Sunday with the wonderful Don and Belva and their beautiful daughter Christine. Monday was a night the caregiver wasn't supposed to work but with sis gone she worked Monday. In return I took her and Mom to dinner Monday night. Tuesday was my day at Mom's. We rested, cleaned, and played Scrabble. Wednesday was a nice lunch at The Astor House Retirement community with new residents, Mom's friends Rod and Marion. Thursday I cooked Thanksgiving Dinner for eight. Yes you read that right, I cooked Thanksgiving Dinner. Ham, scalloped potatoes, string bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and a fruit salad. Despite my cooking there were no food related emergency room visits and some people even asked if they could take leftovers home. I am now basking in my success and thinking about taking cooking classes. Friday I made Mom lunch and helped her with a few things like ordering checks for her. She had a really good day with some surprising things happening. Saturday was making lunch for Mom, watching the Oregon football game with my nephew who was in Portland to attend a wedding, and taking mom to dinner. We wanted to drop a housewarming gift off for Rod & Marion and just went to dinner near there and then dropped off the package.
On the agenda this week at some point is probably some rest. Today I am heading over to the Doofus Crew to watch a little bit of football, I am not staying very long because I have to be at Mom's to make her lunch and help her put dinner together. But I wanted to stop by the doofus crew to wish Ted good luck. He is having open heart surgery tomorrow. Tomorrow after noon and night, Tuesday day and night, Wednesday until about one are at Mom's. Sister is coming back tomorrow so she will do Wednesday night and then I won't have to be back to Mom's until the following Tuesday. So Wednesday afternoon, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Momday are resting, getting my house in order, and Christmas Shopping.
Sister and her husband had a great time on their trip. They visited his son for a couple of days and her daughter for a couple of days and they were able to go to the Dallas Cowboy football game on Thanksgiving Day. They were hosted by the CEO of the television my niece is the morning anchor so had a suite with food and drinks free! By the way Mom and I have been taking care of my sister's cat, Max while they have been gone. Max has taken to me and follows me everywhere when I am at Mom's. Normally not a lap sitter but Max is on my lap whenever I sit down. I will have mised emotions when Max returns home, will miss him but not the work that comes with it!
The blog is now yours to do with whatever you please, update, vent, ask for support, or just commeny way with anything that is on your mind.
These is the suite my Sister and her husband were in at the football game:
