oh for goodness sake


Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments you left on my post taking care of mom. Mom was released from the hospital yesterday and is back in her apartment. She is still suffering from nausea, but I am hoping we can get to the bottom of that soon. I was unable to stay with her because I came down with a bad cold yesterday and I am staying home and resting today. I definitely don't want Mom to get it. I very rarely get colds, but I imagine the stress and hanging out in a hospital full of germs did me in. They will bring her all of her meals from the dining room where she lives and check on her. I am grateful that she is there. 

Now on to the oh for goodness sake things.



Although the crocus and the daffodils are blooming this is actually a photo from last year. The grass is not green and in fact yesterday morning it and the flowers were covered with a layer of snow. Spring is definitely slow in showing its face this year. The trees outside my bedroom window are valiantly trying to put forth their green leaves, but I think they are shivering as they do so. 



For the last week I have noticed a lot of spam showing up in the inbox of my Yahoo email account. So, I wondered what was going into my spam folder. Surprise!! Surprise!! I found all the notifications of your blog posts there. Yahoo in its infinite wisdom kind of got things backwards. I have actually been cleaning up my email account, because I am getting so many requests for political donations. I hate weeding through all of that to get to the emails I actually want. Now I will have to remember to check my spam folder regularly.

Also, Google+ keeps reverting me to a no reply blogger. I will try and remember to keep checking on that too. So many things to do and so little time, but today I am resting. Maybe I'll just read and watch a movie. Sounds like the perfect day to me.

    1. Blogger has become very frustrating. Mom was feeling better yesterday and actually felt like eating. That was a good sign.

  4. Oh honey, so sorry for your sickness and your mom decline. I have been through this hard walk. God will sustain you and give you peace. I am having trouble adding friends to my blog. I get a message that says I am already logged in and to come back later and try again. When I do that, I still can't get through. Sometimes my friends list doesn't show up and yes, sometimes it reverts back to the no reply blogger. Crazy. I just keep making contact with those I have been connecting with and maybe I'll find out what' wrong and how to add new friends.

    1. Thank you. Blogger seems to get crazier and crazier. Some days I just don't have the patience or the time to deal with it.

  5. Sweet Laura... I hope you get over your cold soon. Also, I hope your mom is on the mend soon. I think I am a no reply blogger too and I don't know how to fix it. I hate technology!

  10. So sorry that you're dealing with a cold. Yuck! I had one a few weeks ago and it's finally gone. I'm sure you got run down. Glad that your mom is back home and is able to be cared for while she is recovering.

  11. Well, you and me both, Laura. I got a nasty cold from the 2 year old and I NEVER get colds. I am sure it is just the stress going on in both our lives. I am glad your Mom seems to be doing okay. It is a hard road you are walking and I feel bad for you. I have been there, as you know. Blessings...and I am saying a prayer for you- xo Diana
