Off for an adventure with best friend and her mom. We/they worked hard putting the garage sale together. What would we do without good friends. They are awesome! Mom is over 80 and she is such a hoot to be around. She keeps right up with us and we laugh together so hard we almost cry. What a blessing they are to me.

Made it home safe and sound. Had a great time. Little tired as we didn't get home until 12:30 am and am back at work. Everything went smoothly. Dress for mom was nice, shoes didn't hurt her feet any! and she survived it all pretty well until yesterday when she had a meltdown and yelled at my son. She was tired..so there was some drama and she continued to be in a foul mood all the way home. I understand she was tired and out of her comfort zone. You could tell yesterday that she was confused more but she was able to walk the airports and keep up with us. I imagine she will do more sleeping this week! But the wedding went smoothly, the weather gorgeous, reception was nice. It was worth all the stress and strain of the last few months preparing for this weekend. Mom has Alzheimers but for the most part can function well still...but getting our of her constant surroundings, being tired etc. really shows. She did really well until the end...so we can't complain about that. She did better than we thought she might.

The best part was my family being together. We had fun and laughed alot. Saturday afternoon we loaded up and ventured to a boardwalk in Kamah Texas and had a wonderful time. The boardwalk was so much fun. Ate at a wonderful restaurant and had lots of laughter, fun and family time.

Got home and my best friend and her mom were there...with the light on for us :) Shifting gearsShifting gears...and now preparing for our garage sale at the end of this week. I need to get through these next few weeks and then I crash.

Have had a wonderful trip. Went to boardwalk about an hour south of Houston and had a wonderful evening. The weather was gorgeous. Wonderful time with family. So precious. Hard to see us leaving our seperate ways. The planning and effort put into this trip was well worth it. Another family adventure memory. Not enough time together...but we take what we can have. Heading out to airports in a little while.+ emoticon

  


Saturday Morning

Saturday, September 18, 2010

Well here we go. Finally the big day we've been preparing for has arrived. Grandma is off with our neice and the bridal party getting their hair done. Grandma seems to be doing well with all the changes. Had a few moments last night as she was tired that she snapped at the bride when they changed the schedule...but she seems to have gotten some sleep and was off with the bridal party at 7 am after eating a good breakfast.

Great time with our kids. Daughter's flight had mechanical problems and they had to take anoather flight but they made it about an hour late..so we stayed at the airport and waited for them. Grandma got to be at the gate waiting for her to deplane...and get the first hug. She liked that.

Trying to make good food choices...but it's hard.

Looking forward to time with our kids today and tomorrow morning before heading to the airports.

God continues to bless me with special times with my family. I cherish these moments.

It's finally here...the beginning of our adventure to Texas. Take mom to get her hair done at 11:30 over my lunch time. Will probably have hubby bring her over around 7 pm tonight. Son and daughter-in-law get here tonight...probably LATE or EARLY and then we head about around 4:30 am to fly to Texas. Can't wait to put my arms around my daughter. I may not let go. Then we fly back Sunday afternoon. We get home around 11:55 pm and my best friend and her mom will already be here. They will help me get ready for a garage sale Thrs, Fri, Sat

I hear thunder and lightening this AM We could sure use the rain. Some of my flowers .... well I just haven't had time to get them watered and they look very thirsty.

I think after all our preparation for this weekend...I think we are ready. I think we have everything altered, purchased...but not all packed...YET.. Still working on that.

Off to a wonderful adventure!
