Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Our virtual kitchen is Covid-19 free ...:)
Suddenly Saturday !!!!
Well.. she's transferred .. and she's thrilled with this place .. I don't think there is going to be any hesitation the next time .. (and yes there will be a next time) She transferred around 11:30 yesterday .. and I called her around 4:30 .. figuring all the chaos would be settled down by then and she could get a nap in .. She was off the wall happy when I talked with her .. 1- the food was WONDERFUL !!! and 2 - her window opens so she can get fresh air !!
I got an email from the case worker for mom .. and there's a group meeting on Thursday with mom, the OT, and PT and staffs ...and suggested that I sit in via phone .. I called and told Bill about it, and told him to contact them ..I sent an email back explaining that I will be on a short vacation, but my brother would probably like to sit in (trying to get him involved as much as possible .. I still feel bad about that "1 visitor" mistake I made at the beginning .. ) I told him I forwarded the email to him .. and the final reply I sent to the case worker, I cc'd to Bill as well ... *stepping out gracefully* ..
Bill called me last night, and we talked .. he wanted to know what he had to do when I was on vacation because the last place I was running laundry, and other things I ran last time .. I told him .. nope .. this time we are on vacation, because they are doing the laundry, and taking care of everything I did last time .. I told him that the only thing that is needed is if mom needs something from home .. otherwise they are in 100% care of her .. He asked about after the 14 day quarentine; and I explained to him .. the building is 100% off limits for outsiders, she will just be able to come out of her room .. I explained to him, the way to where he would drop off ... and told him I'm only going with what Denise had told me .. The facility is sooo huge, I have never been there myself, except for an occasional lunch with mom .. (they have restaurants with outside people service, and restaurants that you can eat at with being an outside person .. but need a special pass to get into .. It's pretty much a city within a building ..
When I talked with mom she said that they had complimented me that I was so thorough in my information, and quick with my information .. and it made their job so much easier .. I told her that I used to do that at work .. when there was a big meeting, I did all the brain work, so my bosses could look better .. well .. I did all the brainwork so mom could have an easier transition ..
So -- I was super motivated yesterday .. I got my nails done .. and stuck with my mood colors ..
the purple (pointer finger) is when it's cold, and the denim blue is when it's warm .. :)
Felt soooo good to just do something for me, without having to rush .. I finished there around noonish, and came home .. hubby bought Cousins sub sammiches for lunch .. YUM YUM ... My turkey sub tasted yummy !!!
I dug into my laundry .. and got that ready, and I'm happy to say I'm about 85% fully packed !!!! Yup -- Now I can get myself excited !!! and drive everyone crazy !!!! Tuesday or Wednesday hope to do my bedding so I can come home a nice fresh bed after vacation .. (we don't leave until 6ish at night on Wednesday )
I did play in my playroom .. and since my brain is in mega overdrive right now I thought instead of getting frustrated trying to find something new to work on .. I would start doing repeats to see how I've improved or where I could improve even deeper .. .. So .. decided to work on Rosie ... Never stop practicing !!!
Rosie .. January 2020
Rosie .. September 2020
So -- it feels good to be able to take a deep breath and relax .. I dried my apples the other day ..and sliced of 3 bananas, and dried them .. but they didn't turn out .. they are sticky .. so they aren't going wit me; or they would turn into a big mush of sticky banana slices .. lol lol .. Need to work on that !!! lol but I'm having fun !!! just BEING !!!
Wishing everyone a wonderful day !!! I hope whatever you wish for comes true !!!!
