Well I broke my cycle of blogging once a week and missed last week to post. I’ve been super crazy busy at work. I’m training all day again every day for the next few weeks. Lots going on still with Nanny. When we moved her into the rehab/assisted living, we knew it wasn’t her final spot. She did so good with her rehab – she has to exercise and on strict diet and is better that I’ve seen her in a few years. A nursing home is right next door to the facility and we were supposed to move her there this weekend. Unfortunately she fell this morning getting out of bed and reaching for her walker. The walker wasn’t locked and down she went. Fortunately she was exactly where she should be- they quickly helped her and immediately rushed her to get xrays. Nothing is broke- Thank God!! So, now she’ll be staying at the rehab center a little longer. Lots of red tape too, we have to get her switched from Medicare to Medicaid to pay for the nursing home of our choice. In meantime, I’ve been driving to east Texas every single weekend which is 4.5 hours round trip. My truck is getting the miles on but what do you do? I will do anything to help Nanny and to spend time with my mom.
I HAVE been decorating a lot for Holliween , getting ready for my party on October 20. That makes me happy!
Originally, this weekend was suppose d to be a fun getaway weekend to New Orleans with a couple that are good friends of ours, Thomas and Tammy. Thomas has never been to New Orleans and we booked flights and hotel around the first of the year. We had been talking about doing this for a few years so we finally made plans. Then a few weeks ago, Thomas ended up having surgery on his shoulder. He had been having some pains and there was no alternative. So the trip of course is cancelled. Todd and I are taking advantage of our vacation day and going to the State Fair of Texas. We used to go every year but we didn’t the last 2 years, so I’m excited to eat a Fletchers corn dog and something fried like oreo or snickers.
Have a great weekend and i'll hopefully have a recap of our day of fun tomorrow for yall next week.
Say a prayer for Nanny too please.
Oh and what is this? I bought it from Goodwill because it looks vintage and I love it anyways but not sure what its original purpose is for. I'm thinking maybe long matches or straws? It has holes in the back like ventilation.
