my mom and dad left yesterday after a 8 day visit. it rained for 6 of the days so we really just hung out. my
parents are both 81 and they took the train from colorado to come visit. my dad said they wanted to try something
new! dad is having problems walking and my mom...this kills me.....is in a brain fog. dad is really doing most things for her. so we chatted, looked at pictures and i introduced them to wii. we also took some drives, in the rain, to look at the shore and christmas lights. the first two days they were here i was so stressed, i just kept going in the bathroom and crying. my dad believes i should be working....he said several times "i looked okay" to him. sound familar? mom told me i needed to loose some weight (she is right, but gee) then things and I settled down.
connor came to visit and they were taken with their great great grandson. it was a good visit all in all and i feel blessed to still have them in my life...it was great to get our bed back cause sleeping on our pull-out was torture.
we have two holiday shindigs to go to this year.....life has slowed down. we have two very elderly ladies in our condo group and my neighbor barb and i are having a lovely time being secret santas to them. barry and i also did our yearly dress a doll...who is really a child. we choose a teen-ager this year. on her list was toothpaste, socks and hair shampoo. they give you sizes and color choices and we did from undies to coat.we are so very lucky and it is hard to realize what children do without or how many go to bed hungry every night. anyhow, off my bandstand. it was fun to do...
it is getting ready to snow here and i am considering a late afternoon nap. hope to see everyone at our party on friday night! :bouncing_off_wall:
