Happy 71st Birthday Mom!


I want to wish my Mom a very Happy Birthday!

Katie and I visited Mom today on her birthday. Unfortunately, she was having a bad day. She feels that her artheritis was acting up in her hips. Her right hip was really giving her fits. So bad to where she couldn't do her exercises well. The nurse came by this morning and checked Mom out. Mom told her about the pain she was experiencing. The nurse said it could be the catheter irritating her. The nurse feels she might have some nerve damage on her left side causing her not be able to control her muscles very well. While I was there, Dad left to do his walking and other errands. Maryann came by on her lunch break and visited with Mom for a little bit.

Katie and I tried to do a little fingerpainting tonight. It's the "no mess" paint and paper. Cool huh? Katie seems to like it better than the "no mess" coloring pages. Her and I painted a page & put it on the refrigerator and then she painted me a page. I can't get her to understand, not to dig holes in the paint. Oh well, she enjoys it because she'll giggle and show me what she has done.

Katie has gotten in a habit now where she'll put food in her mouth, chew it up and spit it out at any unknown moment. Ugh!! It doesn't necessarily mean her mouth is too full. It could be anything. She may decide that she doesn't like the taste of something or she wants a drink of juice. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with her.

Mince the heavy fog and drizzly rain, it was a beautiful day with the temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Apparently, the warm weather put everyone in a good mood to go to Walmart because that is where everyone was this afternoon. I had to pick up a few things and oh my gosh, it was packed full of people. You know when you go into a crowded store, you are bound to run into some one you know.

Have a great Tuesday and Don't forget to vote tomorrow!
