Well another holiday has come and gone and it was a pretty good one at that. Well honestly it didn’t start off that way. Friday night after leaving Mom for the evening I headed to GG’s Restaurant for a large pizza. I went home not realizing I didn’t have my ID holder that had everything in it. When I went looking for it the next morning I couldn’t find it. I tore the house apart. I decided to give up and get over to Mom before it was got too late. Happily after my visit I went to the restaurant to look around. The owner and or manager was in the back getting a suntan and so I asked him if he found it and it turns out that one of his waitresses handed it in.
Just as I was arriving home Saturday afternoon Liz called me and invited me to the Norwalk Maritime Center with her and her kids. It was a lot of fun. We even got to feed Lorikeets and I even got “blessed” by one. Poor Audrey got it literally in her eye. She came to me to get it cleared out. I felt ten feet tall. We had dinner at TGIF Friday’s and had a great time. When we got back to the house we made plans to go see Mom. I would go first while Liz had some things to do and then go.
The visit was great we talked and had fun and then we left. By the time I got home I was exhausted and got ready for bed. It actually is becoming the usual blur. I do remember hearing the fireworks from the harbor. The harbor is about five to six miles away from the house.
Sunday I went to the nursing home early and MOm had her PT. I stayed with her until it was time for bingo. I had to drop stuff off at her room before going. I did bingo and chatted with Natalie and then I think I said goodbye to Mom. My original plan was to go to the parade that afternoon. Instead I slept and did some other things. I had my final visit with Mom for the day with some requests from Jim. Liz and Nelson were there I think…yes we were all there. They talked about the parade and I finished Mom lobster roll dinner that Nelson and Liz got.
All in all it was a great one all around.
