Busy day yesterday

November 30th, 2006 at 04:23 pm

Yesterday was a very busy one indeed.

I took my mom to have the transfusion, then went grocery shopping (long overdue) and spent almost $150 (and I didnt have even one coupon Frown) but was able to stock the pantry/freezer and get some deals for Christmas dinner items.

Then, back home to unload and pick up my to his pulminary appointments. Unfortunately, the doctor wants to rerun the tests at the end of the month as my dad has bronchitis and the results could have been so low because of the infection.

Then dad took my to a late lunch. Their money is so tight I ordered the cheapest thing on the menu...which was a small stack of pancakes. We stopped and bought DH some Irish Creme liqueur for his morning coffee and went by and saw DD2s new home (I'll write more on this in my next post).

Then we headed for then it was 5pm and about 35 degrees out. brr. Thankfully, when I got home there was still a small fire in the stove!

DD1 brought my mom home from her dialysis appointment at about 7pm.

Today is a stay home and get some things done day. (thank goodness)

I think the best thing about the day would have to be the enthusiasm in my dads voice as we drove home. He enjoyed lunch and the visit to the new house...perhaps I should look for ways to encourage him to get out more. He even mentioned that he'd like to go to a movie this weekend...hmm...

    You are so doing the right thing and being so involved and selfless in caring for your parents I commend you! I lost my parents several years ago, and the only advice I can give you is, do not have regrets! Some of my days are filled with should of's and could of's. no excuses will ever fill the void of them being gone. Simple things like Lima beans with dinner. or my Dad's hands shaking. I miss them dearly as they knew me, like no one eles.

    Reading this post, and cecilia's post, was a good reminder for me, too. Thanks.

    Thanks for reminding us of those special people. My only parent left is my Mom and she is 2 hours and 15 minutes away. She had alzheimers and about 5 months back had a stroke. She doesn't always knows who is there, but as I heard it said by this wise man, "I know she's there".
