Wow. A week has gone by since my last entry. We haven’t been particularly busy around here. I think that when the snow is coming down EVERY DAY you tend to get a little lazy. Sorry for all of the people who have been DYING to know what we are up to. I am sure that there are one or two of you out there :).
Last Sunday around 10:00 at night I was feeding my mom some lemon ice & her 4 tooth
bridge fell out. Oops! This has never happened before so she was pretty upset. We didn’t even realize that she had a bridge there. So, I called Jenna to re-assure our mom that it could be easily taken care of. When we called Jenna started crying…and I thought “great, this isn’t going so well”. I laughed and asked her why she was crying & she said that she knew how important mom’s teeth are to her. Great job re-assuring Jenna! So, the next morning my dad made an appointment with mom’s dentist to get her in right away. Off to downtown we were
headed in the snow! Once at the office, my dad sat on the sofa & was asleep immediately & of course I pulled out my camera. I think that I could make a whole video montage of Roger sleeping pictures. The dude just can’t stay awake! Someone is working way to hard! The dentist was able to get my mom’s bridge cemented back in & all is well. We are grateful that it turned out to be such an easy fix. Oh, and I took a little video from my camera phone. Horrible quality….but it allows us to show dad in full sleep mode. Exciting, huh? haha
Tuesday mom & I pretty much hung out. Catey came over to help us out around the house. After that she & I got together with our friends for dinner. Just what the doctor ordered! It is good to have a reason to get out of the house….otherwise I tend to hibernate in the winter time. It gets dark early & is freezing cold around here. I have even heard that we are in the running for most snow this year. Go MN!
Wednesday my mom had her weekly bio-feedback session. Jenna had given me Tuesday night off, so she was with mom during the bio-feedback that morning. Mom is looking good!
Thursday we had my mom’s vent battery replaced in her wheelchair. Amy Rasmussen came over for her weekly visit & all we did was complain about how awful this winter has been. Well, maybe that wasn’t all that we talked about. It has been tough though. I think that it has snowed almost every single day around here. Boo.
Friday Jenna & I took mom to see Country Strong. The movie was really good & I bought the sound track as soon as I got home. I just love country! After the movie we did a little Von Maur shopping….so mom was in retail heaven! It had snowed a couple of inches since we had been at the mall, so after I un-buried the car, we made our way home where I had to proceed to shovel the sidewalk so I could get mom to the door. Have I mentioned that winter stinks? Luckily we had a great day & it was all worth it.
Saturday can be summed up with: I got the night off & mom was excited about the Miss America Pageant”. Those were the highlights!
And that brings us to today. Not sure what the day holds yet….but I am sure it will be exciting!
