MOM'S 1ST CAR SHOW
Mom doesn't seem much interested in anything I am. Sometimes that makes it hard to have fun while doing things with her. She has no hobbies, no interests that are easy to fill, and no suggestions on what she feels like doing. All these changes in the Mom that I knew all my life, however, bring about new opportunities for fun and entertainment for her. The UPSIDE to her memory issues are that she now forgets the things she always avoided, such as getting her PICTURE taken! Facebook is a way to, not only let folks know what's happening with her, but maybe get a chuckle at the same time.
When I asked her how she liked it, she said it was OK. Yes, that's the extent of a lot of conversations these days. I think the only reason was it was OK and not boring was the unending people-watching and that she made friends with a puppy dog while gawking around. It's nice to see her walking normal again. For a couple months, she had been imitating a much-older version of herself because of a sore back. Chiropractic appointments (Thanx Dr Bob!), lots of ice to the sore spots, and even some exercises have her return to almost 100%.
I always look forward to Ford Carlisle, as it is close to home and has so many Fords there you almost overdose on fantasies. It's NEXT week, so it won't be long until Mom attends her SECOND car show!
I hope it's better than just OK....
