So its been a super crazy busy week. Last week, I spent Thursday night thru Sunday afternoon in east Texas with my mom and Nanny. Then, Todd had to leave Monday am for trip to California. I feel like we haven't seen each other in forever. As mentioned in last post, Nanny was released from hospital but cant live in her apartment on her own now. She was admitted into a rehab/assisted living center over the weekend. She's adjusting really well which makes me feel better. The first night was hard on all of us. Her room was just so sterile and not welcoming. She also got sick that night which I think was her nerves. The very next morning, we brought her recliner, comforter, blankets, pictures, trinkets and a plant to liven things up a bit. It was hard for her to realize that she couldn't just shower and eat , etc when she wanted to. She's on a schedule where she's at but its better for her. Nanny is going to rehab every day to get stronger and she really needed it. For some time, she sat in her chair in her apartment and got zero exercise. Time will tell....
Yesterday was North Texas Giving Day and is annual event. It's an online event where several charities are included for awareness and you donate to one or more charity through the North Texas giving day sight. Many charities have had sponsors, etc who will even match the donated amount. I am a volunteer for Refuge for Women. I know I've mentioned before and i'll do a post soon specifically explaining what we're all about. In Denton ,(where the University of North Texas ) on the town square, several charities set up a booth to also raise awareness locally and hope that people will donate. I worked the later shift so I could attend when I got off work from corporate job. Sadly, an hour after getting there, some rain and storms were coming in and the winds were picking up so everyone had to take down tents, flyers, etc and it disbanded earlier than planned. It was fun while it lasted.
|We raised $36,700 dollars!!!|
There was a quick storm that went by before I left home and was headed to the event and I was able to take a pic of the pretty rainbow from my patio.
We have 2 girls graduating from the program tomorrow which is a very big deal. I am so proud to be a volunteer for this group. Other than that, we are just going to stay close to home and i'm decorating my house with Halloween. Have a great weekend!!
