Rough week on many levels. Nationally. Locally. Personally. I'm praying next week improves.
Let's look at last week. Mom's leg still hasn't healed. It is improving but hasn't healed. They did say at the doctor's that it would take a long time but just exactly what is a long time? I think if it isn't improved by tomorrow I am going to encourage her to go to the doctor. Last week. Sunday afternoon was at Mom's. While she painted I cooked breakfast for dinner for her and the caregiver. Monday was an errand and work day. Tuesday and Wednesday were very boring seminars. Wednesday night was at Mom's. Since the seminar didn't get out until after four (which didn't leave any time to cook dinner) I stopped on the way home and picked up some KFC and you know what? It tasted damn good. Thursday was shopping for Mom, lunch at Shari's with Mom, afternoon at Mom's house so she could paint, and cooking a damn good dinner Thursday night. I got home at about nine. Friday was errand day. I also bought Mom a brush cleaning kit and dropped it off at her house. Saturday I went to mom and fixed a nice little lunch and they stayed there the afternoon so Mom could continue painting. She is moving right along. While she painted I cooked an outstanding meal of turkey, potato tots, corn, and an ice cream bar. I came home and watched the University of Oregon's women's volleyball team lose the national championship to the University of Texas. They were trounced, three sets to none in a best of five contest.
Looking at this coming week. Today I am going to breakfast with the football boys. Then will spend the afternoon at Mom's so she can paint. Mom's studio is in the garage and she just feels better if someone is there while she is in the garage. I'll cook dinner and the Seattle Seahawks game while she paints. Tomorrow is getting the car washed, pick up dry cleaning, get a haircut, and sign up for the IRS E-filing program. Tuesday through Saturday are a lot of Mom duties. Sister and husband are heading to Texas for Christmas. So Mom is mine. Also on Friday I have lunch with the male boss from my seasonal job. The one that is selling his business. I am in contact with the female boss and she is extremely worried if she is going to be able to do all the work (she bought half of his business.) After getting Mary's input it will be interesting to get Tom's input and see what matches up and doesn't match up. No Christmas shopping is required this week since it is done. No trips to the North Pole are required, Santa has the packages in his hands and knows what to deliver. But I still might want to go North to see the Northern Lights.
It is update day. You know the drill. The blog is yours to post anything you damn well please. Tell me about your life. Good gossip. Good rumors. What you were up to last week. What is on the agenda next week.
