My diversion!

Today, I went out with friends and it was a wonderfully, delicious diversion. Four of us visited the grand opening of a new apartment and retail center called The Villagio. It's all upscale and very nice. We then went to the Boardwalk in Bossier City and sat on the patio of Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro and drank margaritas and ate 4 different appetizers. It was great relaxation for me and a great way to focus on something new for a change. Didn't even get to Mom's today, but she was glad I was able to focus on something else and be with my friends. She is a saint and I love her so much. She told one of my friends that she had the two best children in the world. AWWWWW!

One hurdle passed!

Last night my family went to Dad's favorite catfish restaurant. That's where "his girlfriend" is a waitress. It was hard! She was happy to see us, but sad that we chose a table for 4. Dad always paid for our meal and was delighted to do so. Last night Mom was going to continue that tradition because she said Dad would want her to. Last night the owners of the restaurant comped our meal in honor of our dad. They miss him, too!
