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!
