all this time I was finding myself, and I didn't know I was lost
Got to spend some time with my parents yesterday. Mom still is in pain, and deeply depressed. I took her a Martha Stewart Halloween magazine, which she loved. I also picked up take out from our fave Italian restaurant. She isn't eating, but I knew she couldn't resist her favorite pasta, and I was right. I also was determined that she needed to leave the house, which she's only done once in about six days. Riding in the car makes her extremely nauseous, so that's out. But, I convinced her to come into the front yard with me and check out the bean plants she has in the side flower bed. She got so excited pointing out things for me to pick!
Then, we all had a Face Time chat with my brother's family, and Mom loved that too. She totally teared up talking to Addison and Drew, but in a good way.
When I left, she seemed in a much better mood. Sometimes, you just need a break from the norm to shake things up. (Easy to say, hard to do.)
Things I'm obsessed with right now:
Taking Max for walks. Well, really "walks." Because of his breathing issues, we only walk for about five minutes. The vet says the mental stimulation is far more valuable and necessary than the physical exercise. Max loves it SO MUCH. And, anything that makes him happy, makes me happy.
Cutthroat Kitchen on Food Network. *flail* SO FUN.
Siberia. I am wicked obsessed. It's Survivor + Lost + Blair Witch. Can't wait to see how this all ends!
salt_burn_porn fills, especially the ones by deirdre_c and __tiana__. They both got tagged at tough times, but they're good sports and just went for it anyway. SO MUCH LOVE.
The Starbucks app on my iphone, which lets me pay via the phone. The future is cool!
