Quick Look at our Week

Looks like I slacked on my blog a little this last week.  I am not really sure how the days got away from me.  Overall, the week was pretty good.  It took me a couple of days to recuperate from my crazy girlie weekend.  My throat was killing me & my feet continue to ache.

Monday my mom and I stayed home.  This was day # 4 inside the house for her.  Deanna came and did her bio-feedback & I would give myself a C+ on caregiving since I was still pretty run down.  Sorry mom :(.

Tuesday my Crate & Barrel bedroom furniture was delivered so mom & I were stuck inside again.  This was day #5 inside for mom.  Again, sorry mom!  I would give myself an A for caregiving though!  Was feeling much better!  Jenna came over to give me the night off & spent 90% of the time staring at her tonsils.  It was all very dramatic…..but she is feeling better now.  Thank golly!

Wednesday I woke with a sore throat.  Ok, maybe this blog is starting to sound like waaaa waaaa waaaa.  Really, we aren’t usually in this bad of shape!  Since I was feeling cruddy, mom agreed to stay inside one more day.  This was day #6 for her & she was not too happy about it.  I also missed out on Book Club.

On to Thursday.  The stars were aligned this day….so mom and I were ready to head out of the house.  I was feeling better & mama Jules was ready!  We decided to head to the Mall of America & go walking with our friend Amy.  It was the perfect outing & we had a great time!

Friday my mom and I decided to go and see the movie Cedar Rapids.  At first I didn’t know if the movie was going to be any good.  It was a bit odd at first.  Then it got really funny & turned out to be great!  I even saw my mom crack some huge smiles which I loved.

Saturday we stayed inside.  I read the book “Pope Joan” to my mom for a couple of hours. I have read it before…and I knew she would like it.  Dad gave me the night off….so I went to run some errands & enjoy “Kelly Time”.  There were 2 good lifetime movies on the tv, so mom & dad were set.

Today Jenna came over to hang out with us.  She is making her hubby dinner tonight, so we have been instructing her on how to cook steak & potatoes.  Jenna does NOT cook, so this should be interesting.  Dad has been working on re-building the bathroom

upstairs…so I had to take a picture!  He tore this bathroom up before my mom was diagnosed with ALS, and then put the project aside so we could focus our energy on her.  It has been about 5 years, so it is time to finish the project!

So, that is about it for now.  The rest of our day will probably consist of relaxing & maybe doing a little more reading.  I hope that everybody is having a great Sunday & happy Daylight Savings Day!

Prayer for Julie: Pray for continued happiness & joyful spirit.  Spring is almost here!  We have almost made it!
