Morning After

Hey, Y'all,
We had a really good night's sleep. I was only up once taking care of Gramps. Sleeping in our own beds was wonderful! I have already washed one load of laundry, and am washing the second load. Gramps and I have had breakfast and will probably take a nap later in the day. I feel like I could take a nap right now, but it just isn't in the works.

I have been opening mail, and that will take some time, although I am sure most of it will be companies wanting us to take a new credit card (all that will be shredded), a few magazines, and that ugly word BILLS. I may just throw all of them into a basket and draw the lucky one out to be paid. (Just joking...most of them are automatically paid via the bank). Fortunately, I paid the light bill just before we left for Ohio.

The new beds are wonderful..they are just firm enough, and surprisingly, the firmness helps Gramps to get out of bed, so that is a bonus.

Wonderful news from our daughter, Teresa, and congratulations to her. Teresa has just completed work on a degree in business. We are so very proud of her! (well, we are proud of her anyway, but the degree is frosting on her cake. ) She has worked so very hard and was diligent in her pursuit of the degree. Hurrah for Teresa! We love you!

Well, got lots of things to do today, but I wanted to let all of you know that we are on even ground again. Tomorrow, people from home health care will be here to set up in-home appointments for speech and physical therapy for Gramps, and the house is still a wreck, or as a lady that my sister, Margaret, used to take care of would say, "It looks like the wreck of the Hesperus."

More later. Love to all of you. Blabbin' Grammy is signing off for now. Bye!

So glad you're home, and all is moving ahead. I know Dub is glad for his own terra firma! Yay for LD and Donna and Gene and Judy. Enjoy getting your nest back in order! Thanks be to the Lord for your safe arrival, and for all He did to get Dub the care he needed.

Double Yay for Teresa!!! TN said...

Oh I know you are double glad to be back home.....never mind the mess...My Mother used to say, "It will be here when I am dead and gone," I'm home all of the time and I can't keep my mess cleaned up, so not to worry! Take Care and try to get some needed rest. Love, Clara

Hi Grammy, So glad you are back home and enjoyed sleeping in your new beds. There is definitely no place like home. I know you are happy to be there, too.
