Back to normal

Well, Mom's visit came and went. It was great having her here and she enjoyed herself alot. We went downtown to the National Mall to see the monuments. She has never seen the Korean War memorial or the Vietnam Memorial Wall and the World War II memorial. The weather was just right on Friday to do all of that. I had rented a wheelchair for her and I wrapped a blanket around her legs to keep her warm. We wanted to go to Arlington National Cemetary and the Tomb of the Unkown Soldier, but the weather turned and we way too cold to have her out there. Mom left here yesterday and had a bad travel day. She left here on time and whhile we were tracking her flights online, discovered that they canceled her connecting flight in Detroit. They did get her scheduled on the next available flight, bit it didn't leave until 9:42pm. She ended up sitting in the Detroit airport for 5 extra hours and ended up getting home around midnight. That is way too long for anyone to be traveling especially for a 75 year old woman who is traveling alone. She was relatively calm throughout the ordeal and that makes me happy. I think I developed the migrane over it for the both of us. Do you know how hard it is to work in a brightly lit and very loud place of business when your head feels like it's going to explode?!

Here she comes

Mother is on her way here. She made it to the airport this morning on time and even got herself checked in okay. Once she got through that process I knew everything else would be okay. I was worried that she might miss her connecting flight in Detroit, but she landed way early. She was due to land at 2:40pm and landed at 2:13. Seems they took off early this morning. She'll be arriving here now around 4:45pm. Bob is picking her up for me since I'm here at work and not down until 4:30. That will give me a little time to organize a few things at the apartment before she gets there.

Bob's Mother is doing much, much better now. He came home last Saturday.

Here at work today(Saturday) and things are very, very, very (well you get the point) boring. We are open from 7:30am to Noon (thank goodness it's not any later) and there must not be alot of work going on out there in this area because there is hardly anyone coming in for materials. They say this time of year things slow down. Sheesh, I could spin around in my chair and be busier. (dizzier too though).

Go figure...OSU fell to LSU and as soo as I walk in this morning at work, they start on me like it's my team and I could do something about it. But that's ok, I'll just slam them about their beloved REDSKINS that LOST!!!

Wow..posting from home this time!!

I have a temporary fix on this computer ( I think). I downloaded Firefox and so far have not been having any problems navigating the internet. As you can see, I'm even able to post on my blog from home!!

This has been a very quiet and lonely week for me so far. Bob had to go North to PA to spend some time with his Mother who is ill. We aren't sure when he'll return, but I'm hoping it's soon as I miss him. The apartment just feels so empty without him here.

My Mother comes to visit me in 2 weeks. I'm flying her here for my Birthday. I want to spend some time with her before we move her out to California to live with my Mother. That's all happening in April sometime. oops...I meant she'll be living with my Sister...sheesh...I usually proof read these.

My posts will be short until I get back into the habit of posting again.

Hope you all are enjoying your New Year so far.
