You are a good son. Give yourself a pat of the back and an ATTABOY! and one for Mom because she you.

Gotta maintain favorite child status somehow!

If driving a moving truck 1200 miles next week with her 4 kitties doesn't do it, than nothing will! Just need to make sure that I take my allergy medicine...

I'm just relaxing after finishing a bowl of Kathleen's Faux French Onion Soup. Delicious and really easy.

I'm trying to adjust to my haircut. I'm not liking this one as much as the last time. I told my stylist to cut it "just like last time"...guess she forgot how the back was supposed to look. Unfortunately, all I had pictures of was the front. Seeing as Himself said my hair looked "awful" (and he is NEVER critical about anything) I gave the stylist a call. She said she'd trim it up to make it better...but I have to let it grow a bit first so she has something to even up! Guess I'll live with this for about a month, then we'll have to work on a plan together later...

Himself did say it looked better after I "washed" it. Basically shoved my head under the faucet to get it all saturated so I could give it a full blow-dry. Psst, I'll tell you a secret. I trimmed up the odd angles along the back with my hair shears. Don't tell anyone - especially my stylist!

Made a trip to Penzey's store yesterday. Didn't go crazy as we were in a hurry. Just bought some necessities.

DH had a hearing test yesterday and found out he needs the hearing aids for both ears. We have an appointment this morning to see what is available and what are the prices.

So sorry to hear that. And on top of the expense of a new garage door. Do you need a whole new door or just a new panel?

Unhappy

Mum was readmitted to hospital (transferred from her care home) a couple of days ago - "atrial fibrillation".

Today we got phonecalls saying her breathing was laboured and that she might not make it.... So, took a cab there and was relieved to find her still alive but poorly. They gave her a hormone (opposite to insulin) to kickstart her blood sugar levels which got her out of the danger zone. However, her problem with swallowing (related to her dementia) means she has not eaten for a day or so and we are told that it could be dangerous to coax her into eating since it could go down the wrong way (i.e. into her lungs). Without this improving...how can she live much longer anyway?
