Mom didn't feel up to going to church. Hubby got her some groceries while I played piano during second service. Took groceries over. She was in a funny mood...kept thinking she smelled Gas. She looked kinda wobbly and frail. Talked her into going out for lunch at Frisch's. When she looks that way if we can get her out and eat something she perks right back up. We did...she did...said she wasn't hungry but ate two plates of eggs and pancakes and perked right up. Checked on her a couple of times and she has stayed perked up all day. Think staying in a dark house is bad for her. She needs to get out but she won't do it unless we take her. Not sure if she isn't eating enough...groceries seem to disappear or she throws them out but thinking she doesn't do that. She is always on my mind. Sometimes she aggrevates me or concerns me when she gets down. Gotta keep her going or she quickly goes down hill. She needs stimulation but refuses most activities where she lives except breakfast twice a week she walks down the street to. We can't MAKE her active. So we try to keep a close check on her. I got her to exercise 3 times last week and she still gets down. Oh well when all is said and done...we have given her the best we have and what time we have. We've done our best to take care of her in her latter years.
Took some time for myself...got my nails and toes done this afternoon. Starting to enjoy time for myself and trying not to feel guilty to do things for "me".
Gotta still prepare a few food things for the week.
Off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday evening with hubby!
