Hi gang! Mikie had a newsy post towards the end on the last volume and Windy popped in to tell everyone Happy Thanksgiving. Granni was busy cooking for a bunch of guests and I posted a pic of my and Den's dads. More to read, I'm sure, but I forget already, lol! But please go back and catch up. Hope everyone had an eventful or uneventful day yesterday, however you chose to spend it. Ours was a little different, in that our kids all had other plans and Den was on call, so I spent most of the day with my dad and my FIL. Those guys have always gotten along, so we had a good time. The nursing home had lots of rooms reserved, for the residents who had family coming in to eat with them...board rooms, classrooms, any room with a table and chairs became a private dining room, so loved ones could be with family or friends. The meal was very good, and we three all chose pecan pie for dessert After I picked up Gpa from his house, we drove in to one town to see Sis in the hospital. I was going to just stay in the waiting room, but Gpa really wanted me to go in and say hi. I had ordered flowers to be sent to her on Wednesday (the day of her surgery) and put Gpa's name on them, along with all of ours. She hadn't mentioned anything to Gpa about getting them, so he was going to check when he got to the hospital. I was several minutes behind him, buy the time I parked the car. When I got into the room, he said, "Here are the flowers." They were as far across the room as they could be, on a window sill, behind a door...I guess Sis didn't want to see anything from me? That pretty well does it, as far as I am concerned...I don't need to play those games...I've got enough things that need my time and attention. It was obvious she didn't want me in her hospital room, so I quietly told Gpa I would be in the lobby and to take his time. We then drove to the next town to eat with my dad, then drove back to that town so he could visit Sis again (I came home to take a nap, cause it's only 15 minutes from our house and he wanted to stay a couple hours.) Was just about asleep and Gpa called me to come get him cause Sis was resting. So, I took him on home, then came home myself and went into town with Den. I was exhausted by the end of the day, but happy for the "good" times and will put the cr*p out of my mind. Gpa and I talked about Sis and he understands how things are, but also understands that I or Den will be there for him anytime. Saturday, I get to take him to his sister's Thanksgiving dinner...she has such a big family and not really room for a lot of "extra" people, but Gpa is her only sibling that is left (Gpa is 92, his sister is 91) so she likes for at least him to go. I will stay too and take him home in the afternoon. I don't mean to hog the volume so much already and just realized I'd better get it posted and not leave the "changeover" in limbo, lol! Better get over to Lindsey's and let Sheba out and get organized for our Amish neighbor girls who are coming to do some cleaning for Linds.
