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.

Robyn, I'm so glad you found someone to come in and stay with your mom. I'm sure that is a big relief for you. Hope your village grows with more people your mom is comfortable with.

I have enjoyed Seinfeld too. They don't make shows like that anymore!
