Rare day!

  • Boiled chicken and took it off bones ( for cornbread dressing on Saturday)
  • Washed clothes
  • Paid all bills
  • Went to Wal-Mart to buy stuff for our adopted soldiers in Afghanistan
  • Went to Post Office
  • Took cans to be recycled
  • Installed new cordless vac in garage
  • Toasted pecans for my world famous pralines
  • Went to bank

 I am feeling rushed to get things done because my brother is leaving to go to Branson tomorrow and I will feel compelled to go to Mom's in the morning to walk her and visit with her because that's what he does and then be back there at 3P.M. for my regular shift. When he is here, he is always there when the caregiver leaves until I get there. I will have to get there at 3 this week. Mom will miss him so much while he is gone and I will also want to pop in on the caregiver since she will know he is gone and won't be popping in. I live about 20 minutes from Mom, so it is not like popping in next door. On Saturday, I have our  annual neighborhood brunch at 11 and then at  5:30 I have my annual Sunday School Christmas Party. I have someone hired to come in for my shift, but I must get in Mom's walk and a visit with her. Last year when he was gone to Branson, Mom was in the nursing home here in my it was easy for me to go at lunch when my brother usually went and go back again at night when I always went. It's different this year, but I am glad she is home.
