A good day, again

Guess who slept for almost 10 hours last night? Yea ME! I woke up a few times and went right back to sleep. It took me almost an hour to get out of bed once I woke up. It was luxurious! I was on my second cup of coffee when I realized I'd made decaf instead of regular. The placebo effect was working because I wouldn't have known had I not seen the wrong container on the counter. Last day of real coffee till Thursday.

I grocery shopped for my parents, then sprung my mom from the rehab center. So many staff came up and told her how much they enjoyed having her there. It was sweet to see. She got a lot of hugs! We went by Checkers for lunch. It was my second day in a row of eating there. When I'm bad, I'm bad. We both had double fish fillet sandwiches and fries. Delicious! My mom was so glad to be home. Amanda and my dad were there. My brother, SIL and niece came over. It was nice. Let's pray for no more falls, OK?

They're calling for 4"-8" of snow tonight. I'm done with snow. I'm surprised by the forecast. Yes, I know it's February. I know that 70 degree weather was a fluke and a tease. I know that wearing sandals in winter is not normal. But snow? On a positive note, snow is beautiful. It's going to be a beautiful day. There. I've changed my attitude.

I'm ready to spend the rest of the night reading in bed. Sounds like a great ending to a full day.

Snowed here today. Not too much though, but getting colder tomorrow.

I am still under the weather. Thanks for asking!

PS Glad to hear your mom is home now, too. It must feel good to the whole family to have them home where they belong!

Good to hear she was finally sprung :-)

We are suppose to have snow by Thursday. We'll see. I believe it when I see it here.

Curling up with a mug of hot cocoa and a good book sounds wonderful.

At least the sun is shining even though we have snow and ice again. I wouldn't mind too much but I can't walk this morning!! :-(

Lunch at Checkers is a great welcome-home treat.

Glad you slept and that your mom is home. I'm sure she'll love sleeping in her own bed! So nice that they all made her feel special and that your family got together to welcome her home.

It is so nice to read of you having a great day. I am always inspired by your ability to look at things in a positive manner. Yes, the snow is pretty... I'm glad you have it THERE! Hehehe Will be praying that your Mom and Dad stay safe and healthy. I'm sure they are glad to be home. Have a great week ahead!
