Ugh, Monday mornings suck! I can't believe how hard of a time I had waking up this morning. I'm definitely not a freakin' morning person.
Anyway, had a pretty decent weekend. Friday night Big D and I went to our favorite Mexican place for margaritas and yummy food. We had a fun date together. We need to do those more often! :-) Then Saturday I went over my mom's house to lend her a carpet cleaner and ended up spending a couple of hours hanging out and visiting wit her. And my Grammie popped up at one point and had tea with us. She is not dealing well with the chemo and radiation. She sleeps all the time and has absolutely no energy. Pretty much all she can swallow (her throat is raw from the radiation) is oatmeal...anything else other than soft, bland oatmeal burns and hurts her throat. And what does not help anyting is the fact that she is still trying to do everything the same as before: scrub her kitchen floor, prune her flowers, take my Uncle's dog out--the dog who mind you who is so old that she can barely walk up and down the stairs on her own so that my grandmother used to have to carry (a Sheltie) her but obviously she can't do that anymore. My dumb-ass uncle just kind of abandoned the poor dog at his sick mother's house. Nice, right? Anyway, after visiting, I went home and cleaned and scrubbed every inch of the bathroom. We're going away to Maine to visit Carsa, Allen and the kids, this coming weekend and a friend is house/dog sitting so I want the house to sparkle for her! Sunday Big D and I went strawberry picking...we didn't get much cuz it's the end of the season, but got enough to make strawberry shortcakes for dessert! Then we watched a movie and invited my mom over for dinner, dessert and a movie. That was nice. I love spending time with my mom!
And now here we are again Monday morning...the weekend went by TOO FAST. Anyway don't think I'll be creating a Menu Plan this week. I didn't get a chance to go food shopping this weekend so now even sure what we have in the house. It's not much though. We'll be eating a lot of pasta this week, I think until we leave on Friday!!!
