DD had a really good visit with my mom. She said she was doing well. Of course had a few things they had to repeat, but that's the norm with her now. DD did discover she had forgotten to take several of her evening (cholesterol) pills during the week, but apparently got all the morning one's taken (most important). Still very concerning, as obviously a normal cognizant person would see there are past days evening pills still left in the pill box when taking the next day's dose.
She loved the digital calendar/clock, so we are hoping this is another memory trigger to take her pills. When I am there in 2 weeks we will set up the alarm system to remind her when it's time and see how that goes while I'm there. Mom called me early evening yesterday and thanked me for the digital calendar. Said she thinks it's great and really appreciates it. She sounded really happy and doing well.
DH and I decided to go to Lowes and get the garland I wanted and he also wanted 2 big candy canes that were at Home Depot. Well.........much $ later we finally got out of the city, LOL. He needed a few screws and bolts, as the fireplace log holder I bought through Amazon was missing all the screws (grrr!). As we were standing there I turned around and saw this 4 piece set of 2 artificial trees in pots, garland and a wreath on Black Friday sale for $49. I couldn't resist, especially at that price. Next summer DH is going to put some more plug ins near the front door, so I can put them outside next Christmas, but for now I put them here. You can't seen in photo but they also have pincecones and red berries mixed it. Very cute.
I just worked on trimming our older lab's nails. I hate doing it and he doesn't really enjoy it much either. His nails are sooo thick. It's hard to even cut through them with the nail trimmers I have. Maybe there are better kinds to buy. I also have a nail grinder, but he really hates the noise of that. I usually try to cut what I can and then grind a little more off, but by then he's usually done with me. I wish there was an easier way to cut them down.
It's been a nice long weekend. I'm not ready for Monday, though. How about you?
