Now playing: Mindy Smith - One Moment More
via FoxyTunes

Mom went swimming today with the group from the day program. She liked it I think. Joyce left a note that said "Your Mom went swimming and she floated on her back and on her front!". It makes me happy to know that Mom had a fulfilling day. I'm trying to set up a routine so that Mom goes to the day program twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I hope that it helps her to have some stimulation. Mom has always been a social person though a little shy so I think this is good for her. Plus, I really don't want to have her spend another winter alone for 10.5 hours with no stimulation at all. Plus, it means that when I come home exhausted she won't be starving for attention leaving me feeling like I need to entertain her.

The job interview from hell continued today. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager's manager who is in CA. He asked me many of the same questions that the others asked, plus he called just as I got home from work. I'm glad this is all over, it was stressful and exhausting. I'm not sure I'm cut out for all of this rigmarole. I like working quietly in my cube maintaining things for the babies. I don't feel good about my chances after this phone interview, but I have to remember that everything happens for a reason. It's in God's hands now.

It is hot and humid here today, just ripe for storms and tornadoes. This morning on the weather report that is exactly what they were talking about. I hope we don't get them though.

Prayers for Lori who lost her friend Helen today. God bless them.

It's so good your mom will go with Joyce to the day center. I really hope it continues to work out for you.

Good luck with that job. I remember interviews like that. They are exhausting.

Nine Years and Counting

Mom has been gone for a little over nine years. This blog was a huge mechanism for helping me cope with her illness and daily downfall. I...
