I hope you are warm where you are because its a really cold afternoon. I had to put a couple of sweaters on just to be warm. It is probably a relieve to some but for me not today. Its funny I like rainy weekends because if you don’t have to go out you can do stuff that you want (well almost-laundry is a must but not my “want to do” activity)
Bingo went well. Marney and Natalie were both there today. They both did paperwork and I set up for bingo and chatted with the residents. I did find out that this wonderful lady whom I have known for a number of years had passed away. She was the only woman Veteran at the Nursing home. When I got home I sent an email to the women in our club.
i went to the 11:30 mass at St Mary’s and sat with Liz who was one of the Eucharistic ministers today. A Eucharistic Ministers Are many volunteers who are taught the ways and everything important to know about distributing what is known as the Bread and wine (to symbolize the body and blood of Jesus Christ). Of course I just read this bit of info about it and I am not sure that’s all of it. I guess there are various meanings for it. Anyway in the short time we had we talked about Mom.
Liz tells me Mom couldn’t remember if she saw me this morning or not. She did. She did remember that I got my migraine last night and told Liz about it. LIz also warned she was cantankerous. Something I didn’t find at first when I returned home this afternoon. Anyway Liz had a few things to do before going out to some black tie event in Plainville so she really couldn’t visit long.
When I got home I found Mom in her pajamas and still reading the papers. I invited her to take a ride with me (anywhere really) but she declined. She just didn’t feel like going anywhere. So she has been out back watching TV and had some lunch and snacks the afternoon.
I have ended up doing two loads of laundry as I am now getting a little tired and my legs are starting rebel on some level. I haven’t had much problems getting up out of the various chairs or anything but it is time for me to take the tylenol again.
For now I am going to watch the rest of the NCIS marathon and then read some of F-List blogs (Is that the correct terminology?) that I haven’t replied to in a day or two.
Have a great night....
