It probably isn't as much excitement as watching the frost form on the windows in the winter. You gotta make your own fun sometimes. If it is construction holidays, there isn't a lot to do on the Island right about now. I'd say TL's done well to find something so exciting to do on a Friday afternoon when everyone else is well on the way to the cottage. For all we know, the dw repairman was a hottie .

I am about to have some vanilla ice cream with either chocolate sauce or fresh blueberries. The berries are healthier and the chocolate could give me a migraine. Nah, there's always Tylenol, right?

Chocolate it is!

Blueberries are about the only thing that can trump chocolate for me! :)
Hope the ice-cream was good. I had ice-cream at Culvers last night (actually they say it is custard).

Kylie one of the main things I have taught my children and others around me is, "You don't want to live with the 'ifonlies'. If only I had... You get the message. As a result I have some truly wonderful children.

My oldest son stops in every day to make sure I am all right. My youngest son lives too far away in case of an emergency. He is a Physician Assistant and is my medical proxy. If there is a serious medical question, my oldest son calls him immediately. My daughter has her own problems. Even though she only lives about 45 seconds away, she takes care of her husband and is trying to get her daughter through college. He husband is a cancer survivor. But the chemo treatment was extremely aggressive and left him in not such good shape. Son #2 lives about 20 minutes away. But he does stop in at least once a month and calls several times. So I am well looked after without having my independence compomised. And that is the important thing. Elderly folks are afraid of losing their independence. So as she gets older always try to help her maintain that independence. My daughter bought me a lightweight wheelchair that we take on weekends to go shopping. I cannot walk around a store. But I can wheel around and still go shopping. My oldest son takes me grocery shopping every month. He brings my bags into my apartment and puts all the groceries away. And he makes sure the items I use most are in reaching distance. I am only 4'8" tall. It is the little things they do that help me stay independent. My mind is still sharp and they know it. Hopefully it will stay that way. So make sure you don't live with the "ifonlies" later on in life when it is too late to make ammends. I am sure your visits are very important to your mother. Call her if you can't get to see her. Let her know you are thinking of her. You don't need a reason to think.
