Christmas Eve

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Enjoying time with our daughter and her boyfriend. Took early morning walk with Mom. Trying to keep up the exercise and it's good for her.

Christmas Eve service with boyfriend and parents and then back to daughter's Condo for get together with both sides.

Sunshine feels good!

Think I'm starting to relax...

Got Mom calmed down and settled...it seems. Taking her out of her environment really throws her into turmoil until she relaxes. Guess I'm calming down too! Everyone is off and about while I am here alone for awhile. Made an apple crisp and baking chicken for dinner.

Enjoying time away from work....if they would let me alone :)

Starting to relax.

Mom got to go watch grandaughter teaching today. She really enjoyed that. Last day of teaching for daughter so we have a week ahead for some fun together.

Arrived safely in Sarasota. Mom took a rest day and we stocked up on groceries. Went on a trolley ride and saw Christmas lights. Was really pretty.

Hoping to relax yet work calling wanting me back a day early from vacation. Lovely! Have to learn not to think about work and relax.

Also sister in law called with problems with my brother who is far away and in the hospital. Have to learn to compartmentalize problems I can't fix or control and enjoy where I am.

Off to enjoy time with my family.

It has been crazy...what's new!

We leave tomorrow AM early for 10 days with our daughter in Florida. We have Mom about packed to go. I think it has helped this season for her. She decorated a little and has her things laid out ready to pack. We are planning to only pay for one big suitcase to check in and then the three of us will pull a carryon.

Can't wait to see daughter and get my arms around her.

Looking forward to time away from work. With the holidays...it made for a nice long visiit.

Change of scenery and sunshine will be good for Mom. Has given her something to look forward to. Hopefully she keeps a good attitude and is up for change.

Haven't been tracking my intake and Weight In was BAD...up 6 pounds in one week. Not sure if some of that wasn't water weight as I haven't been eating out a lot but something was out of order.

BUT---I have been exercising faithfully.

Off to get through this day...kinda slow at work but my mind is rushing with all the things to try and remember.

Merry Christmas to all!
