No sleep last night because of my back pain, so I rested as well as I could. This morning I tried to stretch it out but couldn't. I was so stiff and sore but went to work instead of calling in sick. I need the money. Thank goodness work was very slow and I didn't have to do anything except being a cashier. I made the customers pack the heavy stuff so I wouldn't cause anymore pain. They went for it once I explain about my back. The manager wanted me to condense a rack for of Easter stuff which consist of a lot of bending and lifting and moving. I did what I could and left the rest for Amy to do which she didn't mind. She is a awesome co-worker and friend.
After work we went to Tim Horton's for lunch share a Turkey BLT and had a coffee but took the donut and muffin home for breakfast tomorrow.
Then after lunch drove to see mom and told her the good news which she found out this morning from her doctor.
She ofcourse is nervous, scared and excited to move. She is sick and tired of hearing the hallway door leading to her ward bang shut every five seconds. She is in the first room beside that door. There are notices posted to shut the door quietly but people don't care except for the staff who work there.
Don't have to worry about that after morning!
WE also had another meeting with the Social Worker from the Hospital about the transfer. It will happen at some point on Monday, I am allow to travel with her in the transfer taxi and John will follow us to the Care home and we can get her comfortably settled in. She loves that idea, it made her feel safer and know she knows that we aren't leaving her there.
After that we can set up her room with some of her treasures.
Then it was time to go home for my back was in agony. I managed to make some steamed chicken breast skin and bones removed already, rice with broccoli, carrots, onions, cauliflower with a very lite Soya Sauce.
Spent a few hours of sparking in total while trying to rest my back. I can only sit for ten minute, lye down for ten and so on.
Now it is time to take more pain pills and go rest of the couch until the pain subsides and I can walk to the bed room.
Lots to do tomorrow: Bank meeting with mom's bank for Authorization, renting a wheelchair for mom or getting one on loan.
Then the rest of the day: nothing, just taking care of myself until i go to work Friday night.
I will be fine.
Good night, Sandraland is now closed, Hugs

Well last night I went to bed and managed to fall asleep at around 1:30 am. only to wake up at 4am and could not get back to sleep. So I got up and went into the kitchen for a Tylenol and a Clariton. I couldn't breath and my back was spasming out. I then laid on the couch where I could raise my legs up onto the back on the couch and got so much relief after laying there for 30 minutes. Meanwhile I watch a few of my taped shows and was still awake at 8am and then managed to doze of until the phone rang at 10am letting me know that my Step Dad and Aunt are driving in to help us finish cleaning mom's place.
It is a good thing she called cause I had an appointment with the bank concerning mom's banking unfortunately I couldn't get it done. They wouldn't accept the papers I presented to them. Then I ran into one of the Receptionist who I have known for ages and she told me that I should actually go to mom's original bank and show them the forms, and it should be OK. I know one of the tellers there and I hope she recognizes me, IF not I have to go and get a bank's POA done with more witnesses. I will get this done tomorrow after I finish with another meeting that I have concerning mom.
While I was at mom's place, Aunt Jean cleaned mom's kitchen fridge, stove, cupboards inside and out and got her kitchen floor totally cleaned. We found over thousands and thousand of mice poop and ten dead mice in nooks and cranny. Now we know what the awful smell was in her place all the time and my poor mom lived like this.
IT totally grosses me out, no wonder she came down with cold, flu and other lung problems. Now that the place is clean they can remove the carpets and put in news ones, replace the bath tub and surrounding wall, it gave way while I cleaned the bathroom today, One whole panel came off the wall behind the bathtub and the wall was black.
I even managed to vaccume the bedroom and both closets and the living room. I filled up two bags of dust, dirt or other crap.
While we ladies were cleaning Dad went with John and dropped off the Red Cross Items that mom had rented for six months to help her out around the apartment, they also did one trip to the storage locker and then drove back to N. Vancouver to look at John truck and to see if Dad can fix it, He is a mechanic and a darn good one. We thought the Alternator was going on it but Dad think it just need a good long drive because we had to get the truck jump started at three different times. So that is what we are going to do.
We will take a long drive to Abbotsford where they live, visit and then drive back. That should do the trick.
A few hours had passed and John called me found home saying they are on their way and they were hungry and also someone name Scot had called me concerning mom. John will explain when they get back to mom's. So we waited for them.
John gave me Scot's # and I called him. It turns out that Scot works for Little Mountain Care and wanted to let me know they might have a place for mom by the end of this week. I was so surprised and excited. IT turns out that it might be Adanac Place after all. This is the place that is only 15 minute away from my place and it is the place we like most of all from the outside.
Then we all jumped into the station wagon to go to ABC for dinner.
While at the Restaurant we all sat down and I jotted down some notes about mom. Scot wanted me to email him about mom's medical and life history, her likes and dislikes, her hobbies and other stuff.
Then we enjoyed our dinner, I had eggs Benedict and a coffee and they had different things. Once we were full and satisfied we headed back to mom's finished cleaning up the counter tops, loaded the remaining items(plants and planters) but left some of the cleaning supplies and vac there. I want to do one more vacuum and clean the patio windows before we go. Then all is said and done. Good bye the that rat infested He7777 hole.
Then came home took two more Tylenol and enjoying sparking while listening to the voice. Off to have a good long hot soapy shower and then to bed.
I have a meeting with Scot tomorrow at noon to get a tour of the place and to fill out more forms. I can't wait for tomorrow and to meet everyone there.
Then I need to go to mom's bank nearby and to get that done, then to London Drugs to get mom' insurance and stuff figured out. I didn't know about this. Dad told me.
Oh I still have to go to mom's clinic to tell them about mom and to the pharmacy to pick up all her receipts so that I can finally get her taxes done over the phone.
Still a lot to do but like I said, The end is so very close.
Had a great time today with family, had a great talk with family and most of all got a whole lot done.
I feel so good right now even though my back in aching and I am beyond tired. I know I will sleep well tonight.
The owl is coming along nicely and I will show it to you all once it is finished.
Hugs and sweet dreams.
