Confusion and Calamity
Ahh, Friday! The first day of my 4 day weekend full of summer fun. Wait......it's not exactly shaping up like a fiesta so far :(. I woke up and poor Momma has the flu. (The messy kind). She is now settled a bit on the sofa and I think I will try a little toast for her lunch. Fingers crossed she can keep that down. It's hard because she can't really verbalize what's wrong or how she feels. So I kind of have to wait to see what happens before I know what to give her. The good thing is that I was home today and not at work. I'm not sure poor Auntie could have coped alone this morning. It took the 2 of us to get her cleaned up.
The other news is this is the weekend my family arrives from Vermont for the month of July. I'm excited but always stressed until they pull in my driveway. At 82 and 83, it's a long drive for them and plus there is the crazy long weekend traffic on the highways. But for the past 3 evenings I have had some pretty funny phone calls from them. Last night I answer the phone and "Nanny" is yelling..."you won't believe what he did"....(this is often how these calls start Haha) Honestly, it could be anything but apparently he broke his glasses and they have to wait and get them fixed so they will be a day late leaving. He was suggesting that he could go to the Dollar Store and get reading glasses and then get his glasses fixed here. Ahhhh, he's half blind and considering driving 13 hours with dollar store reading glasses!!! I don't think so. What a man! Lol
So we have convinced him to wait, get them fixed and leave Saturday instead.
In other "scratch your head" news - today I got a new bank card in the mail. It says it can't be used until its activated. But then it also says it becomes activated the first time you use it. Huh? Am I missing something here? Lol
Happy Friday All
