uncle bob and aunt jeannie are supposed to come for a visit today. everyone is SO excited! They raised 3 boys so I imagine they can relate to a house that is not spotlessly tidy. We can walk without stepping on things but not everything is in its place. In fact not everything even HAS a place. Still waiting on the carpeting downstiars so we can move a lot of this crap down there. but alas it is what it is. And I know jeannie and bob wont be judgemental. they just arent like that. so I am not worried at all.
I surprised my mom with a visit yesterday. She was happy to see me. I was happy to see her too as I had been in tears for days thinking she is slipping away. She was up and at em when I got there. She doesnt actually get dressed but she was up and at the table having had breakfast and coffee with dad. then she stayed at the table a long time until she had to get out of her brace and went back to the chair. I left her to take a nap for couple hours and she was back in the kitchen when I got back and she was still there when I left. so she is "up" most of the day. I made sure the drapes were open and some sun came in too. She so needs that. she is getting depressed.
