More Blubbering on My Mom
Sorry... can't help it - but my mom seems to be the center of what's going on in my life right now so here's a little more on her. Fate has its way of working and she called me last evening and said she's not going to see CATS. She developed nauseousness and vomiting; likely from the pain meds she's taking. Damn I feel bad for her and wish it would just go away. It made her happy to know her first suggestion of who to give the tickets to, took them. Rick's son, Neal, and his girlfriend Jessica (who loves cats by the way) are going to the show tonight and they were thrilled. I must say, I was pretty darn happy too they took them. Today (Sunday) is packed with catch-up work as best I can: a little weed pulling, a little harvesting and storing of food (swiss chard), a little house cleaning for me, a little house cleaning for mom, delivery of tickets to Neal in Millersburg, delivery of Rick's mom's wash (we do her wash for her every week 'cause she can't see to do it -- she's 92 with macular degeneration), a 10-11 mile trail run on virgin trail I never ran on (Ned Smith Center in Millersburg), then collapse this evening from exhaustion. Maybe I'll have a glass of wine. Oh, I didn't mention I have a new kitten. Pictures are coming. I found her sitting on top of a culvert in the middle of a back country road, meowing and crying for food. I picked her up and she purred all the way home (about a mile). Someone dumped her off. We've seen that happen before and old sappy Chili can't walk away from a dumped, friendly kitten.
