This That And Another Thing

Thank you everybody for you kind words of encouragement and prayers for my mom. The powers that be decided to defer a decision and are going to leave it and see if they can get mom back to where she was before the accident. If they can that will not be bad news as I am sure she will be happier in the home that she was in having her own private room with her own possessions around her. In the meantime she will be a couple of months at least in the hospital but they have moved her to a ward that is better suited for caring for her. She is allowed to have her motorized chair and I managed to get it to her today. She had a very big smile as that chair gives her a little bit of independence.

I got my motor home. Yay! It looks very good out there in my driveway. It is still cold out so I will wait a little before I get at it and decorate and clean. It needs new drapes and chair covers. My daughter comes in nest week so maybe we will go and shop for fabric. She found some at Fabricland that have fish all over it. I did not ever promise to be tasteful in the decorating. I plan to get a garden gnome to ride along with me so you can see I am very serious in my quest for tackiness. My brother can't get over that I bought this unit. He says he just can't picture me driving it. He is sending a truckers hat in the mail even though I told him I would not wear it as it would give me truckers hair. I do not plan to get that tacky. That is just so wrong...

I have been feeling a bit more upbeat lately and seem to be better at taking things as they come without all getting all stressed and melting down. That I think is progress. Progress is good.

I am aching pretty bad as the weather is warming up drastically. It always seems to hit me when that happens. I am no spring chick. I am an old hen. Thank goodness for the new fancy tub! It really helps get the kinks out.

So glad you got your motor home. Sounds like you will enjoy decorating it and getting it just to your liking! Maybe we can take a trip in it when I come to visit.

Shelia, that is the plan. I hope you like camping. :) the lake we will go to is only 20 minutes from Becky's so if you need a little break you can always get back to civilization. I can hardly wait for summer. Next week I will plate it and start practicing driving it. I am so excited.

I actually love camping. I've always been a tent camper, but I think at this age I can get used to the "luxury" of a motor home! haha.

Three words:

Drive to BC.

Is BC two words because it's technically British Columbia?

I am glad you are making progress and sounds like your mom is too!!

Enjoy your motor home!!!

One day at a time.

Sometimes that's all you can do.

So glad you have the camper! And why not decorate it with fish fabric and a garden gnome? It sounds fun to me!
Fortunately for your poor body there is also the tub!!!
Big hug Christine,
