I"m Not Lost

     I am really not lost, I just haven't been able to visit you all like I really want to with craft shows, visiting the nursing home, my grandson getting his first year pin in the FFA ceremony, just to name a few of the things I have been doing. Oh! I forgot my one day a week job.
     Do you have your plans made for Thanksgiving? They are having Thanksgiving at the nursing home for the patients and family this coming Saturday the 23rd. It is their way of saying thank you. Thanksgiving I will spend with the kids that live here then take food up to hubby  later in the day. My grandson has already order cranberry tarts, both he and his grandpa like those.
     I didn't go to the nursing home today with working. He called complaining that his legs were really bothering him. I asked him if he had told them about them hurting. No, he hadn't. I didn't have much sympathy tonight. I told him when he has a problem, he has to tell them. He said that he would.  I have been told that I need to let him be more independent, but I think he really was trying to make me feel bad because I didn't go. It is not fun being a caregiver even though you try really hard. It doesn't help when you know that you can no longer take care of them like you use.
      I had a good fairy over the weekend. Someone paid for my breakfast and I don't have a clue as to who. I would have liked to have been able to say thank you. 
    We celebrated two birthdays over the weekend. Both were a little late because it was the first available evening that we all had an evening free. Starting in January, my middle grandson will be playing basketball. He has practice right now on Tuesday evenings. 
     My heart and prayers go out to those that were affected by all of the storms. Especially to those who lost love ones and their homes. We had some in the area, but nothing like what hit in Illinois, Indiana, and other states. We did have the winds, thunder, lightening, and heavy rain. They still had storm warnings out when I called it a day. 
     I hope you all are having a good week. Take care

I am glad to see you here, Shirley. I am sorry about your husband's health problems but you are right he needs to speak up and tell them when he has a problem.

I am glad you were able to celebrate those birthdays even if they were late.

Hope you enjoy the Thanksgiving at the nursing home. xo Diana
