Mother's Day is right around the corner. I hope you all have plans with your mother or your children or grandchildren. I am blessed to have my mother still here and just a few steps away into their apartment on the end of our house. She's not quite a spry as she used to be but neither am I so we make a good team! When I think of the days when we used to tackle projects that involved moving wood stoves back in the old lake house it amazes me. We can get into enough mischief now but it doesn't involve moving heavy stoves!
These days we like to go shopping and going out to lunch with an emphasis on lunch. We went shopping last week and hit the jakepot at Dress Barn for her. They have a good petite department which fits her well. Now you all know by seeing pictures of me that I don't shop in the petite department........ahem.........we won't even go there.....
My Mom has lost most of her eyesight due to macular degeneration. She does well though and does most all of her housework herself and cooks when Dad isn't treating her to some yummy takeout. There are lots of things that she used to love to do but can't now due to her lack of eyesight. One thing I miss too is that she always got my groceries for me each week. I would make a list and off she would go in the car to the grocery store. What a luxury having someone do the weekly shopping!
Now she likes to fold my clothes for me and that's a huge luxury too!! Sometimes I walk into their apartment and she is in her chair and I dump the big basket of warm from the dryer clothes right on her! We have a weird sense of humor around here......heehee!
I could go on and on but I don't want her to get all snuffly as Dad reads this to her. I will just say that I am blessed to have her as a mother and she's a keeper! I love you Mom! xoxoxox
