Monday: I was able to volunteer at Independence Place. We made fairy night lights for them to sell at their spring craft fair. I can't tell you how much I love being with these very special people.
Tuesday: Nice day at home. Got some things I had been neglecting done.
Wednesday: I was kind of teed off all day Wednesday. I have class every Wednesday morning but Mom asked me to clean her freezer for her that afternoon. (She had put a 6 pack of glass bottles filled with seltzer water on the top shelf of her upright freezer , thinking it was the fridge I guess, which had burst showering the entire thing with glass shards and seltzer. She rarely uses the freezer so there is no telling how long it had been like that) Long story short, Mom takes naps every afternoon and if I waited until class was over she would be ready to sleep and it would mean I was cleaning her freezer at about 5. (You have to understand that cleaning it Wednesday was critical to her because that was an arbitrary day when she decided it needed to be done, even though she needed/wanted nothing that was in the freezer) So I skipped class which made me a tad unhappy, then I got to her house and she had started "cleaning" before I got there instead of waiting, creating more of a mess. It took me much longer than it should have because I had to clean things twice just to clean her "clean up" before I actually could clean the freezer. I guess the positive for the day is that the job is completed until the next incident. Another positive is just some laughs My Beloved Sister and I had over a bizarre question she asked me. Mom wanted to know why I was making candles in glass bottles and why I put them in her freezer?!?!?!?!
Thursday: Another day at Independence Place making Boho bags for them to sell in May. It is wonderful to have someone come up to me at the end of the day and tell me how much they love me. Like I have said before, it's a special place for very special people.
Friday: By 6 we were headed to the lake. Traffic was abysmal since schools were out and Spring Break was beginning. I think every school kid in Alabama was headed for the beach. Our normal 45 minute drive took nearly 2 hours, but it did give us a lot of time for conversation. Anyway who cared that it took so long because we were driving to the lake!
Saturday: Laura (Son2's very special friend) spent the night with us and I got to enjoy her company. It was really nice to have another female around.
Sunday: Did I mention this was a Mom free weekend. (Apologies to My Beloved Sister who had to pick up the slack )
