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?!
