I have been noticing some of your journals…uh, I mean ‘blogs’ and I am wondering how in the world do yall get those pretty layouts??? I have been wanting to change mine and don’t know how…so I have settled for this one.
I went by and got Dorris and we rode over to see our mama yesterday. She was very excited to see us, as it had been over a week since we were last there. Both Dorris and I had a cold and didn’t want to spread it to mama or her friends.I had called a few days beforehand and made her an appointment to get her hair cut. It looked real nice. She had a pretty pant suit on and was sitting in her chair in her room when we arrived. First thing she said was, “Well, have the dead came to life?” lol lol
My mama;83 years old… isn’t she pretty?
She was in pretty good mental shape this trip, even remembering some things she had seemed to have forgotten the last time I was there. She did forget that I now had a grandchild, so I had to help her a bit with that…I seem to have to do that every time that I see her. His picture is on her bulletin board that I put up on her wall ,along with Danny's’, but she forgets to look there I guess…and even if she does, she forgets very fast.
As always, I took her a goody bag with cookies and candy. I also brought her an RC Cola….which she loved! Dorris took her a new magazine to read and some daffodil flowers. I have got to buy her some more shoes. She has to have the kind that adjust, so I get them through a catalog for the elderly and handicapped. Because of varicose ulcers, she has huge elastic bandages on both legs and they go all the way down to her feet…making it impossible to find shoes in a store that fit. Somehow, or the other, she has lost the mates to some of her shoes!
I am so grateful that she is in a home where the nurses and aids all love her and treat her with kindness and love. Some have known her all their lives, and think of her as a grandmother. It eases my mind to know that she is cared for and I no longer have to worry about her taking the correct medicine, getting burned on her stove, setting the house on fire, getting out and getting lost, etc. as when she lived alone. Me and Danny were going up there to her house everyday, (many ,many times a day )to check on her, but I still worried. Unfortunately, I also have to work to make a living and now that Danny is gone…well, her being where she is loved and cared for 24/7 is a blessing.

It started raining last night and rained most of the day today. My arm that was broken and now has a metal brace and screws in it, hurt like the dickens…so I guess it is going to be my new weather barometer! lol I went in to work today with a headache. I had the blasted thing all day long. It has finally eased up, but now my back is hurting! lol Can’t win for losing sometimes! I’m okay, it’s just that I’m getting old. ( I hope I sleep better tonight than I did last night…I woke up at 4:00am after having had a nightmare.) ok…I’m through whining now!
Wyatt is getting to be so energized! Since he has started crawling (and standing while holding on to things), he doesn’t think his little butt is made for sitting anymore! REALLY! I try to hold him in my lap like I use to and he is like a little wiggle worm in hot ashes trying to squirm his way down to the floor! He is not satisfied until he gets down!
He has also began to turn around and stand up when you put him in his high chair! You can not turn your back on him or the next time you look, he is up and standing looking over the back of it!
That is unless he falls asleep like he did here, after getting his tummy full! God Bless his wittle bitty heart…Grandma loves that baby sooooooooooo much!
Thank YOU Heavenly Father for all my many blessings.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
