Today Mom spent the afternoon with Marie, a new caregiver. When Marie arrived with the social worker, Mom was very sad and crying. I guess she must have settled down because when I got home she told me about the 'nice lady she spent the afternoon with'. Several times throughout the evening Mom made similar comments about Marie. I'm glad that she had a good afternoon. So now the coverage is from morning to evening, four days per week. That takes a load off of my mind just knowing that Mom is not alone all day. The fact that she enjoyed the person is icing on the cake. I guess you could say that my village has grown.
Tonight I watched my Season 9 Seinfeld DVD, specifically the episode titled The Strike. This is the hilarious episode that includes among other things, the Festivus holiday celebration. I never tire of watching Seinfeld. It is so cleverly written and acted. Next I want to watch the Jesus fish episode.
