Fitting in Issues this week might be a Challenge
This weekend was very busy. Saturday was Kane’s family moving day. I then went to Kane’s apartment to help get a start on cleaning, got home just in time to shower and take Max to Mass.
Sunday, LL and I along with David, Kris and Steve went to Portland to Uncle Marcel’s home. We picked up a washer and dryer Kane bought, and picked up a large braided rug for my living room. We got back just in time for me to take a shower and make it to Brantley’s birthday party in Salem. My grandson is official 2. 🙂 After the party, although I did not eat pizza, just salad, I barely made it home and had “issues”. The only reason I did not have “issues” the day before is because I hardly ate anything. So this week should be interesting, it is busy with things that I can not miss.
Today, Mom, Dave, and I went to St. Louis to put flowers on my mother-in-law Joan’s grave. It is 10 years ago today that we lost her. I still miss her. She was a lively, spunky, loving woman. Then we went just a mile down the road and stopped at Kane and Lisa’s house for just a few minutes. Then off to Kathy’s house. Kris met us there and we had a great visit with Kathy. She was in a good mood, singing songs, using full sentences. Made my day. Dave, Mom and I afterwards stopped at Wilco and Roth’s grocery store. When I got home, I barely had time to put my purse down and the phone rang……..Social Security for our pre-scheduled phone meeting for Max. Pre-Scheduled??? I told them I knew nothing about it. They said they sent notice in February. I believe them because the day they sent it out was the day before Monte passed away, so I am sure it was my fault. I probably opened and glanced and thought it was a form letter we get all the time….my bad. So thank goodness I got home when I did, and thank goodness I knew all the information off the top of my head. The rest of the afternoon, I am going to work around here and after dinner, LL, Max and I will head to Mt. Angel for my cousin Kathy’s Rosary. Still can not quite believe it.
Tomorrow is Kathy’s Funeral. Then I head over to help Lisa finish cleaning their apartment.
Wednesday, Lisa has appointments so I hope to be watching both the boys in the afternoon.
Thursday, I have a very important meeting for Max. I will spend the morning going through files and getting all my ducks in a row so I can advocate for him. The meeting is in the afternoon.
Friday is my day to go to Woodburn with mom and take her shopping.
I must confess that I am a little nervous about this week. I need to figure out when I can eat and have “issues” that wont interfere with my plans. Might be challenging because over the last week, I have had three somewhat embarrassing episodes and I really don’t want to repeat that this week. Wish me luck.
