So I had big plans for Wednesday and Thursday: Paint, fabric, tile, and oh yeah, clean my house. There is always that when you are a full-time mom. But there was a little glitch: my sister got the call at 2am that my mom was taken to the hospital. By 11:30 I was in the car and headed to her apartment as she was being released, but couldn't be alone.
So instead of cleaning, painting, writing and blogging, I hung out at GG's "hotel" as Carter has named it. Sleeping on the sofa, reading magazines, eating nice meals in the dining room, and running errands and taking care of mom.
All in all, not a bad deal I was thinking!
Most important, she is OK; we were able to be there when she needed us; she was at her new apartment which has 24 hour emergency care and not home alone; she was close to the emergency pull cord in the bathroom and had help there in minutes.
So the blog and home life had to wait, but it's still here for me when I got home. For now, I will be there when she needs me, for as we all know, our parents won't always be around like laundry and errands and blogs and the other detritus of life.
All in all, it was a good 2 days.
