Three Very Tired Little Ladies!

Today was so much better than LAST Friday!!!

Deanie and I picked Mother up at the Hair Salon and took her to the doctor for a follow up visit.
I was happy to go back to our traditional 'Selfie!' photo op! Mother always looks through the shots and then picks the one she wants me to post to Facebook.

Mother dearly loves Dr. Goldman and Dr. Goldman dearly loves her!
He pronounced her 'WAY Better!!!' Love his doctor language!!
As is often the case, a doctor visit can take a very long time!
So apparently does a lunch at Red Lobster.
We were tired and hungry and just wanted our food!
Mother ate three biscuits waiting for it. All we ordered was Clam Chowder - and I had the soup and salad. My salad came with a few grilled shrimp on top. Our waiter said the LONG delay was they had to fire up the grill for the shrimp!! 
Can you tell I am super tired and completely out of 'discretionary energy??'

All three of us would just chat away together having a good visit and then slump back into 'beyond exhausted' mode. Mother went right to bed when we got back to Deanie's and I think I am pretty safe in saying she is most probably still there as I write this!

I finally got to see Deanie's new home!!!
All I'm wanting to do is clean my house and decorate for Christmas.
Deanie has a new home filled with boxes waiting to be unpacked and a garage full of furniture that is waiting to be put in rooms and furniture that will soon be delivered from being in storage. Helped put things in perspective for me.

I got home at 5:00 and I followed Mother's example and went straight to bed.
Just got up and found Louis Dean asleep on the couch in the den.
I think another day or two and our energy level may start to rise again!!
For now I am going back to bed!! I may stay there til Monday!!


  1. rest and take good care of yourself!

  2. Get some rest Linda you have had quite a week!

  3. Good for your my dear Linda. And to think you get to do it in your beautiful clean white bedroom...I'm sure you will have sweet dreams and wake refreshed. Love you.

  4. Your mother looks good. You have had an exhausting week. Rest when you can.

  5. Good for you! Sleep all much as you want. This has been not only hard physically, but mentally even more! Not to mention, no one ever gets any sleep in the hospital, including the patients! There really is no place like home, and our OWN BED! As we get older, I think we appreciate that more and more. Your mom looks so much better now, and also HAPPY! She is so blessed to have her family, and such a caring doctor. You and your mom are always SO cute with the selfies!! Tell her she is loved in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia!

  6. Your mother looks wonderful! Now rest....

  7. Get some rest, Linda! Your mother looks radiant! :)

  8. So glad to see you and your mom back to your usual Friday routine. Routines are important in making you feel better and I'm sure your mom felt that way too. She is looking so good. I'm happy you three are all getting your rest.

  9. Linda it is lovey to see ypur mum looking so much better, and her doc looks like such a nice man! Rest as much as you can and recover after such a hectic and stressful time X

  10. your mother looks fantastic and i am so happy she is back to her regular routine and getting her hair done and eating out...

  11. Linda, I bet your mother was happy to go to the salon again. Bless all your hearts, I hope you can all rest up . Take care . Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  12. So glad your Mom is up and about and could have your special Friday.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  15. Happy for the way better good news. Y'all get yourselves plenty of rest!! Enjoy the weekend.

  16. A blessed report from the Dr and a fun, though tired day! I honestly don't know how you do it. I'm so glad that you "took to your bed" as my grandmother would say. :) I do that more often than I'd like just to ice/heat my back. I'm sure Deanie's house is gorgeous! Ask her if we can see pics of it when she gets it in order.
