What to do? – A few of my friends have elderly parents who need monitoring and care. I remember when my mother was very ill. It’s hard to see people you love deteriorate. It’s also hard to get them to do what’s best for them. Most of us refuse to face our limitations especially as we age. I have a dear friend who is working to find the best solution to help her mother. I can only send hugs. We must all navigate these stormy waters using our best information and our loving intentions.
Breakfast please – We met some friends for breakfast on Saturday. On the way I commented that I wasn’t hungry. I had eaten too many leftovers the night before. The beloved husband looked at me like I was nuts. He said, “That was 15 hours ago!” He is always hungry in the morning. Me, not so much. It was a great meal with great companionship.
Speaking of coffee — I followed up breakfast with a Starbucks coffee. When you are accustomed to Starbucks most other coffee tastes weak. The restaurant served brown water. I like my coffee strong but not bitter. I loved it in Greece and Brazil. When I flew home from Brazil I brought 10 kilos with me while others were carrying 10 kilos of other things.
No black Friday for me — I didn’t shop this week. Maybe I will visit the local Petco store and pick up some cat things on sale. I hope they don’t have a cat adoption event. That is never a good idea for me. Cats in a cage break my heart and end up in my house.
I know her! – One of my blogging buddies is a gorgeous model and a great writer. She writes stories about the people she encounters in New York City. She has also published two books. I have been following her blog for a while. This week I almost fell off the sofa when I saw her in a full-page spread in our local medical magazine. It’s not often that my blogging world meets my real world! Woo Hoo!
How was your week? Crazy shopping or crazy relatives for dinner?
