Christmas with my Mom

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Today was a wonderful day. Nothing fancy. Jim and I had Christmas Lunch with my mom at her assisted living home. After lunch, we played Mexican Train Dominos. We laughed a lot and enjoyed ourselves. It was very nice. My mom gave me a cute red hat to add to my hat collection. I'm sure it will be one of my favorites. I got nice telephone calls from all my grown children (they live out of town). It was just the nicest day.


It reminds me of the following quote from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"

"It came without ribbons!... it came without tags!... it came without packages, boxes, or bags!"

Like I said, nothing fancy, just relaxed and fun.

    I just spent my New Year's Eve with DH and my mom. Went to a 3:00 movie, and there were a lot of seniors there. Then went out for a low key dinner. I was home before 8:00. It is not easy spending time with my mom. She doesn't talk much and doesn't seem to understand social cues anymore (if she ever did). But it was important to do, and I don't need a fancier celebration. Some day she won't be around, and I will wish I could have spent the day with her. I will be taking her grocery shopping tomorrow because they are predicting heavy snow on Thurs. and Fri. Needs to be done.

    I'm SO happy you had a beautiful Christmas Day...and I'm absolutely thrilled your tumor is shrinking, shrinking, SHRINKING...we'll call it Shrinking Violet from now on. Soon it will be Goldie Gone! emoticon

I have to have my friend Patty teach me Mexican Dominos...I bought her a set for her birthday and got the hubs and I a set as well. I've always wanted to learn to play Dominos and now is as good a time as any.

I've decided that for 2014 if i want to do something...I'm doing it. If I want to travel..we are doing it. No more...maybe tomorrow...because we just never know about tomorrow arriving.

It is a wonderful way to live and I know you are in the same space my dear friend!

I'm LOVING my time off from the gallery..very busy with projects..the day just FLEW by! emoticon I worked on two mirrors. One painted with shells and the other I covered in fabric. I'll decide if it can take any seashell garnishes tomorrow. It may be just fine as is..the fabric is pretty pronounced as it is. Or I may just put a modest sprinkle of shells around the mirror section as an accent.

Tomorrow will be the deciding day and of course I'll post pictures. I LOVE my CRAFTY crafts...woo too...such GREAT therapy! emoticon

    emoticon That's kind of how our day went to. Nothing special or fancy. Just dinner with my FIL at his house. Glad you and Jim had a nice Christmas lunch with your mom and had a really nice day all the way around!

Merry Christmas Kay! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The low key holidays are always the best! I'm so glad you got to spend Christmas with Jim and your mom. Mexican train is so much fun, too. I have a feeling your big blowout bash will be sometime in 2014 -- when you are officially declared cancer free. Now that's a party I want to go to.
