Think about it, Dear Reader – you are reading a blog that has not been updated since March 19. That’s almost a month ago, yet you still bring up this silly blog and see if there is something to read. I know what such laziness says about me, but what does it say about you?
Life has been busy since we returned. One bit of excitement was the lack of a computer. My desktop caught a hiccough and I went into withdrawal as I could not process photos. However, I cannot use that as an excuse for not posting – I can use my laptop for that.
Mom, however, is the same. I was really quite fearful she would not remember me after a month away – though during my time in Viet Nam, I was very surprised to hear from my sister that Mom remembered her name. The first day I walked into the nursing home, Mom spotted me and burst into a smile. Of course, she does not know my name nor my relationship to her, but she knows I am somebody important to her.
One thing also remained the same as when I’d left – she was not wearing her upper dentures. A couple of days after I came back, she had also sat on her glasses, bending them badly. I got them repaired for her, but I will spare you the photo I took of her with neither her upper teeth nor glasses. I ain’t purty, folks.
Instead, here is the matriarch herself.
What else have I been doing since our return from Viet Nam?
That’s a good excuse for another post – hopefully before another month elapses.
