I had a pretty good afternoon off yesterday. I stopped at Home Depot and picked up the new shower head I had ordered online for store pick up. I got up to mom's apartment just after 12:30, so that gave me enough time to install it (easy peasy) and make sure it worked ok. Then I refilled her meds in the dispenser. Then I looked in her fridge to find a whole bunch of containers of partially eaten food. They are in these kind of nice green containers that come from the kitchen. They seem too nice to throw away. I texted K with a picture of one and asked "do you know if these containers are supposed to be returned?" and she texted right back and said she had that same question and asked and they said to just set the containers out on the table in the common area, so I set them out, where someone else had put a couple.
Then I noticed she had her tv all unplugged again! Then in one of her kitchen drawers (along with normal kitchen stuff) I found one bra and one pair of underwear! K had mentioned a week or so ago she had found her do this, so what her brain is thinking on this one I have no idea! By the time she returned from lunch just after 1pm, I had every thing I wanted to do done, so I was glad of that. She comes walking in...in her white shorts...and slippers! I said "whatcha got shorts on for mom?" She kind of laughs and says "oh I don't know, the other people were commenting on it too". I said well lets get a pair of your jeans on, so you won't be cold when you go back down for dinner. It's only 40 degrees outside". She also on her own got out a pair of socks and put on her tennis shoes. While she did that I took her garbage out, to get rid of all the food I dumped into it and set those containers on the table in the common area.
I had brought my hair cutting scissors and gave her hair a little trim. She has always done this herself. She actually cut my hair for many years and did a good job. I am not good at it, but now her bangs were no more and almost as long as the rest of her short hair. I think she looks better with bangs, so I gave her some bangs back, haha and trimmed a bit around the sides and back. We spent the rest of the hour just visiting. It was pretty much just an hour of continuous loop of the same conversation. "So, how are you guys doing?" I'd reply and try to think of something to tell her about. Then it was "so, how are you guys doing?". I can't tell you how many times I was asked that question. I was really in no big hurry as to when I needed to leave, but around 2:15 pm she then kind of says "oh, I'm so glad you stopped by" so I took that as my cue to take my leave.
I went over to Subway and got dh and I each a sandwich to bring home for dinner. I had the cooler with me for the groceries, so I put them in there. The reason I went there before picking up groceries is due to the location. To leave Subway and head in the direction of home I'd have to get across lanes of busy traffic, which is almost impossible, so I went first and then was able to turn out of Subway easily and go to the store. Then I went to the store to pick up my grocery order. Still liking this store better at least for the no wait time. Again, they brought out my order in less than 5 minutes. I just need to get better about marking what I'm willing to have a substitution on.
I'm enjoying my quiet relaxing Saturday morning, drinking my coffee, puttering around the internet and not having to get ready to spend half the day going to the city and back. I'm pretty sure a nap is in my schedule today.
