Today when I went to get her for her hair appointment, her arm was all bandaged up and she had a huge knot and bruises. Come to find out, when she was being bathed this morning, she apparently slipped and fell. She's sore and bruised and didn't feel worth a flip. I was really upset I hadn't been called as I found out this happened around 6:00 a.m. this morning and when I got to her assisted living cottage at 11:00, no one had called me! Well, they had called my home number but I was out running errands early today BUT they have my cell number and my husband's and trust me, when I got through with the on call nurse, they will be sure from now on to call every.single.number they have until they reach me. Ridiculous! When we got to the beauty shop, her hairdresser was out with an emergency so the person that did her hair...well, let me just say, when my mom left she was in tears. I don't know if that person has ever fixed hair before....it was a total mess! Hopefully, one of my hairdresser friends is going to do her hair next week. It's always something, isn't it? I know in light of all the disasters going on right now in the world, these are minor things...I totally get that. But my goal is to have my mom as comfortable and happy as I can make her.
On the home front, we are hosting Easter this year, as we always do. I have a few things out, my dining room table decorated and my mantle and that's it. Hopefully I can get some pictures of that and post them...but it may be AFTER Easter!
My daughter dropped by one evening this week and she had the twins' Spring pictures. I can't believe they are going to be 10 years old next month!
Recently my husband got himself a new phone so he is now in the 21st century. He wanted to be able to text and get "on line". The first two days he added all his contacts. Next he downloaded three apps...Auburn football schedule, weather channel and Angry Birds! Now I understand the football schedule and the weather app but I'm not sure about Angry Birds...he knows Jackson plays that so maybe he was hoping he could play a game when he's at work....he'd kill me if he knew I told ya'll that! The other night I was in our bedroom watching TV and he was in the den....I got a text (from him) that said I Love You! I had previously told him I had to be the first woman he texted. So now my sister and daughter text him just to mess with him...he's so excited he's getting texts!
My sister and I are heading to the beach in two weeks and I CANNOT WAIT! No husbands, no kids, no grandkids and we may turn off our cell phones. We'll be there 4-5 days (she may have to go back to work early so the 5th day is iffy right now) and we plan on sleeping in every morning, hanging out on the beach and pool, eating and of course, shopping. I've checked the weather forecast and it's only supposed to rain the 2nd day we're there...we might have to make ourselves shop that day!
Guess I'll end this rambling post by wishing everyone a blessed Easter weekend.
