Marvelous Monday !!!!
2 more days .. not including today .. TWO MORE DAYS !!!! 2 more sleeps !!!!
I talked with mom last night and she was in good spirits .. but I had to laugh .. she's eating so much she's complaining about being stuffed .. The food is so good that she's not even interested in her desserts .. Now .. that may not sound strange to some .. but my mother is the pickiest eater I have EVER met !!!! I get ulcers just thinking I have to cook for her when she comes over .. That's why I check every step of the way when I cook for her at her home .. because she is a horribly picky eater .. so to hear her say that the food is so good that she's stuffed .. is wonderful !!!! I told her that she's going to have to cut her portions in half, and just eat half ... see how she feels and then if she's still truly hungry; nibble a little more .. .. but I'm thankful, because I told her she's going to be working for it .. lol ... and she needs to keep her strength up .. She told me that while they've been working with her .. the weekends are a bit more laid back ..so today they will start working harder ... She told me that they got her to walk 6 steps yesterday .. and that made me smile .. She said she made it perfectly clear that she was going to be leaving in 20 days .. (medicare cutoff) .. and I told her I had no doubt, but God could have a different idea .. so all our bases are covered .. I explained that I believe that right now .. yes .. she's weak because of no activity for 2 weeks while in the hospital ... but most of all I think she needs her confidence level boosted, and when they make her do those things; she won't be afraid to "stand" getting her meals, and doing laundry and doing the dishes, and washing her hair .. right now she's terrified to stand because she is so weak .. so taking those 6 steps ... was a mega milestone !!!!
Anyway --- We went on a road trip yesterday, and while I felt bad for hubby because the ride home was so horrible .. between 12 miles of stop and go driving, and then the rain hitting where it was hard to see the car in front of you .. it wasn't a fun drive home .. I kept myself occupied, but felt bad for hubby .. he was exhausted by the time we finally got home ..
The casino was okay .. nothing spectacular .. but I bought myself one of the chocolate raspberry cones .. (it was a weekend, and ice cream is legal ..lol) and sat and enjoyed it .. BIG TIME MEGA YUM !!!!!! and hubby walked laps, and played a few poker machines .. the tables weren't open .. He is sooo patient with me .. He found me about every 1/2 hour .. and every time he showed up .. I got a good win ..lol lol lol .. I wasn't playing crazy because I figured that the machines would be tighter than normal .. and I was right .. lol .. but I found a few that I had fun with ..
We got home around 4ish .. and I was thankful we made it .. saw a few accidents on the way .. people were just driving horribly nuts .. and then the weather didn't help .. Anyway .. we got home, and I had a light dinner .. scrambled egg sammich on toast with cheese and pringles .. and a few spoons of ice cream for dessert .. I really wasn't hungry, and my belly was a sour apple belly .. something didn't like me throughout the day .. It's still there this morning, but not as bad ..
At 5:30 .. when I called mom .. I was in the middle of talking with her .. and PHHEEWWW !!! Power gone !!! ??? This has been happening alot this year .. I'm blaming it on all the farm fields turning into subdivisions .. Grrrrrrrrr!!!!! but anyway .. we sat without power until around 7 ... when it finally came back on .. only to PHhheeewwww back off again just as I was getting the clocks reset .. well .. it did that again 3 or 4 more times, but I didn't get up and start fixing the clocks until I was SURE it wasn't going to zap again .. *DOH!*
Finally the power came on and stayed on .. and I could clean up my kitchen and dishes from the morning, (we have well, and well .. no power no water .. *sigh* ) After resetting all the clocks, cleaning up my kitchen, and running a dampmop over the floors, I headed upstairs ..to play in my playroom and got my scribbles done for my next endevour .. another one with flower pot in the background .. Hmmmmmm I can NOT do flowers and leaves .. (in bunch) .. but I may have a bit of an idea .. I tried it last night on my scribble page, and it seems to have worked .. but not holding my breath .. lol ..
I have errands to run today .. and then I will be home .. and finish up my packing .. and play in my playroom .. hubby is golfing today .. (because we will be leaving Wednesday on his normal day .. ) ... so I have my bachlorette day today .. :)
So -- wishing everyone a great day ... I'm going to have one !!! :) busy but fun !!!!
