Not sure why I am feeling like it should be at least Thursday already, but I am. Maybe having done my normal Thursday long drive on Monday has mixed my week up, or maybe because I have worked late two night in a row. But, at the moment, it's how I feel. Yeah, I need a break. There is one coming soon: 9 days, 10 hours and 41 Minutes but who's counting?
I have birdfeeders in my yard. The birds sure do eat a lot! But I truly enjoy watching them come and go. Having birdfeeders also brings squirrels. I don't really mind them, they too are fun to watch. But they steal my bird food! I had tried feeding the squirrels, too: a few cups of peanuts every day. Unfortunately, they wanted more. I think I figured out a way to stop the squirrels from climbing the birdfeeders. I put Crisco on the pole. It has worked so far. I did google it before I tried it. FUNNY!!! videos out there to watch. https://youtu.be/VtGtYoqBiNs
I got a phone call late this afternoon from my sister, Mom was at the hospital. It wasn't surprising. When I talked to mom and my sister on Sunday, Mom seemed confused. She is 82, but she has had all of her faculties together until then. She was not feeling well and had a really bad headache. Considering the medications she is on, her other health issues...it wasn't a big leap to think not so happy thoughts...stroke, aneurysm...other things I don't know much about. Being the non-medical person in the family I usually defer to my sister about health issues. They did the tests: Vitals and CT scan all seemed normal. Turned out it was what I thought it could be on Sunday but never mentioned to anyone: UTI. Glad it's nothing too serious. Meds are started and she will be just fine. Phew, major sigh of relief.
While waiting for the lab results, I live hundreds of miles away from my family, I went over to the restaurant where I work, figured it was game night, I could kill some time, distract my brain and have some dinner. I had invited a friend to come out for game night before the medical concerns with my Mom had come up. Well, much to my surprise...no more trivia games. Bummer. My friend couldn't make it anyway, but yeah it would have been fun to hang out. Especially tonight, I needed to de-compress. That really was a rough couple of hours.
Here's to tomorrow being a lot lighter of a day!
