Took a break...



I got about half way through emptying out the bathroom cabinets, when the plumber (Yes, an honest to God, plumber) came to evaluate the disaster we call the bathroom. He promised to show up on Monday morning, and he would be done in less than a week. By the time he left though, so did my energy to pack up ‘stuff’.


I took a quick shower, after calling for back up (my grandson), and I got ready to head shopping. I picked him up on my way. Armed with my o2 tank and full of all three of my breathing medicines, I resolved to have a good time.


First, we went for my glasses, as they were ready. Then we went to Target for dog food and treats for J n J. I hadn’t eaten lunch, so we headed for the mall. The food court has the best sesame chicken and Lo-Mein and cream cheese wonton too! We perused Romancing the Stone, we both love that place. When I suggested we walk over to Spencer’s, he said something about my not being like his other grandmother. I took it as a compliment. On the way home, we made a stop at the Dollar Store for a couple more totes.


When we arrived at his house, his family was getting ready to leave for Mexican food. Golly, I hope he had room! They asked me along – I, however, did not have space to eat anything else and I would be driving home in the dark. (Headlights are still a problem, since my cataract surgery, I cannot drive after dusk)


All in all, I had a great time. I needed that outing so bad, well, you know. I did enjoy my time with my grandson. I may not be able to move tomorrow, but it was worth it!

  2. I just happened to see your link to your blog on Facebook - I was suppose to be following you but your blog posts do not show up on my Blogger dashboard so I just figured you were just posting on FB now-
    sometimes I hate Blogger. I LOVE cream cheese wontons and since I am the only one (between my sis and me) who likes any type of Oriental food, I love going to the food court in our mall or a restaurant to eat because I can get what I want - I just wish I could make that stuff, all I can do is microwave eggrolls - Chinese dinners that are microwave usually are NOT very good at all. When you talked about taking your oxygen and breathing meds that made me think about how I have to make sure I have PLENTY of eyedrops plus any other eye meds I need and my sunglasses - if we ever went shopping together we would have to have at least an hour to organize what we HAD to take with us. :)

  6. Got out into the 'real' (yikes) world!! Puts everything into perspective and makes our big problems seem a little. Must have been good for you both to bond a little.
    Cream cheese wonton?.....

    Sweet.
