Country Lakes...






We are planning to grab a little salad and take off for a nearby lake... The temperature is beautiful today, and even though we have heard the thunder rumbling a few times yesterday and today, the rain's away for a bit... Time to picnic on Memorial Day, drive-through style! Mom loves to take rides. Even though, to my aghast horror, I heard her tell a mutual friend she "hasn't been anywhere in three years," (grrr... gasp..... grumble), I think we've hit quite a few hot spots. I know I'm not Daddy. That's the bottom line. However, as I told my principal, "Mom could pretend!" He laughed and laughed, saying that pretending just wasn't something my mom and his mom's generation ever did... He smiled at me after he'd had his laugh for the day and said slyly, "After all, THAT's your specialty!" .... uh.. yeah, pretending? guilty as charged... I think it is! Have a great day.

Aww, I know you work very hard both at your job and caring for your mom, I am sorry that sometimes you don't feel appreciated. I think that is the nature of the beast for caregivers (and daughters?), it is good you can have a sense of humor about it and take it with a grain of salt.
