A rare treat. Shhh, can you hear it? Me neither.....its quiet! No company, no chores, no work, no Auntie and/or her friends chattering away in my ear for hours on end. Its just me and Mom all settled in for a lovely quiet evening alone.
Tonight Auntie and her gal pals have all gone out to a local Dinner Theatre. It was always a family tradition. We gathered up a gang of gals and went together. Last time we all went it was evident that it was just to busy, confusing and structured for Mom. She didn't understand she couldn't roam around or talk out loud etc. So for the past 2 years I have stayed home with her while the rest all went.
I don't think they all realize what a treat it is for me. I almost never get a little quiet time at the house (or Grand Central Station as I like to call it).
In fact, I think this might be time to open that bottle of wine I got from my last visit to Corinne's house.
