Dorothy’s Friday with me was on Wednesday this week. I was out of town last week and I’ll be busy with grandboys this weekend.
She knew I was coming-but forgot- when I arrived mom was sweeping her room with the roller sweeper- she had the bathroom cleaned and told me she was almost done with her chores. I watched her finish up and was happy that she is still able to keep up her place. We gathered her clothes – stripped her bed and headed out. She was so happy to be getting out- even if she did not know what day it was.
Before heading to my brothers to start the laundry we made a stop at Sam’s Club and got a few things- along with Chocolate Chip Cookies (they really are the best!).
Paul, her youngest son’s birthday is this week and I thought we’d celebrate- and these cookies are his favorite. (Cookie Monster!) He was off work for the day- starting his annual vacation- so it was the perfect day to celebrate.
As I said before, mom loves to iron- and there was plenty for her to do- so she got busy ironing. She was at peace.
It was a good day to celebrated -moms baby- we had Arby’s roast beef sandwiches and CCC. We even sang Happy Birthday. Right after finishing her sandwich mom had a cookie and then another – she was going for the third and I had to step in. “mom, you had a milkshake with your sandwich and two cookies already- are you sure you can handle another cookie?” She responded, “did I already have a cookie?” Sigh! Yes mom- you’ve had two already. “Oh, ok- then I don’t need another one right now.”
This is why she is in assisted living. She needs assistance in not eating an entire batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies in one setting. LOL
I take her back to her place- she had no idea what we did all day. But that’s okay- my brother and I do.
Peace & Love,Cheryl Doreen
