Had a good weekend. Got a lot of puttering done around the house Saturday. Had nice work dinner Saturday night. Church, lunch with Mom and then off to car rally. I went with another lady..hubby had helped plan the course. Then we did some shopping around. Got gift card for daughter in law's birthday. Found a cute snowman to put on the mantle. Had a nice time with hubby.
Came home and lowered a pair of pants for Mom. I didn't want her to buy the petites a while back but she insisted...,now I'm lowering them because they are water waders. Of course she'd worn them to church (black pants) with white socks so she glowed. She's an interesting creature. But we work with her and love her. Hubby setting up a Christmas tree for her. Been a long time since she's put one up. Ask her if we put up an extra tree we have if she'd let us and then she could decorate it. She said OK so that is on of hubby's jobs today. Although hubby says it makes more work for us...she is able to decorate still if we set it all up and will give her something to do for the holiday. She has decorated some around her house with little trinkets. She seems in pretty good spirits. Try to keep her busy and active during the holidays so they are more pleasant. Asked her what she wanted for Christmas...she said what she can't have...her kids around her. I told her "we're your kids" and she said...you are always around...my Becky. Then I feel bad and talk to hubby about maybe flying her daughter out this summer or something. But he reminded me that maybe we should plan to go to Texas and see the upcoming new Granddaughter coming this summer and see them all at once. He said she has to want to come see her Mom too! Strange family dynamics. I want them all to be one happy family and maybe it just doesn't work that way. So we'll see.
Off to make it a great week!
