Waylay Weigh Wednesday
Well I have decided to waylay weighing in until tomorrow. Reason being is that I forgot to take my medications yesterday. One of the meds I take is a "water" pill and therefore I could potentially be retaining water. Whatever it says tomorrow I will make it official though.
I saw mom last night for dinner. She had some paperwork she wanted me to look at. The other day she went to the Hallmark store and was pulling in to a parking space and just slightly scratched the car next to her. No marks on her car just the other one. (Side note: She has never been in an accident in her entire life. The only other time she hit anything was when I was 7 (1973) and she hit her car with my dads car backing out of her driveway.) Anyways, she is a little freaked out about it since this is all new to her. I was able to calm her down a little and walk her through it. I need to remember to be more patient though. I think part of my frustration is that it is hard for me to watch her struggle with her vision and memory. I feel like I am losing my mom and slowly switching roles *sigh*
Please take a moment this Veterans Day to think about the sacrifices of members of the Armed Forces both living and passed. My dad was a disabled Korean War veteran who was paraplegic due to spinal cord injury from a gunshot. He passed away in 1999 and is buried in the Garden of Honor at the cemetery near my mom's house.
Until next time...
