Me and Mom.
I am in Oklahoma visiting with my Mom as she recovers from a bout of health problems. Almost our entire family was here for Thanksgiving. The weather was gorgeous and we had much to be especially thankful for this year. Mister and Princess went back to Louisiana on Friday and I have remained behind to give Mom a bit of help as needed...
Being here is a bit like stepping back in time... The only channels on the TV are the free ones. Since I am a devout TV-a holic this is a serious adjustment for me...Mom's driving privileges have been revoked by her doctor so I have become her chaufeur this week. I have been rebuked for "following too closely" and for "talking and not paying attention to the road" when my sister was in the car with us. I'm having flashbacks to my teen years...Mom doesn't cook any more so I have been cooking for her and she has been loving my cooking. Only problem is that Mom ALWAYS finishes her lunch AND her dinner with a bowl of ice cream. Every day. Being the good hostess, she insists that I eat ice cream with her. I am beginning to resemble Santa.
Mom has some challenges ahead, and the truth is I am honored and privileged to be here to help in any way I can. We have laughed (and eaten ice cream). We have shopped (and eaten ice cream). We have talked late into the night (and eaten ice cream). These are sweet days (filled with ice cream).
I've not had any time to read blogs lately so I am waaay behind. If you are reading this I appreciate the fact that you've stopped by, and the next bowl of ice cream will be eaten in your honor. ;-)
Name your flavor.
