A new week has dawned and I have my wonderful Isabella with me. What a wonderful way to start the week! She is clinging to me alot and won’t even let Himself play games with her. The other day, when my daughter came to take her home, Bells had me pick her up, waved and said bye bye to her mother then put her head on my shoulder facing away from my dd! It made me feel so badly for my girl. It touched my heart, though. I wanted so desperately to have a close relationship with my grandbaby and it has happened. I am sure she is just going through a phase with her clinging.
Can you believe how close American Thanksgiving and Christmas are? The stores have had Christmas decorations since September. Bah, humbug! As is my want, I would like to skip the whole thing and work in a soup kitchen. However, my in-laws are not in the best of health and not celebrating in their way would be selfish of me. Still, if I could come up with a good reason to not go…..soup kitchen wouldn’t fly with Himself. Heavy sigh.
You see, I don’t do well in crowds. Even family crowds. I tend to walk away from where the majority of the family is and sometimes end up outside. This is true at parties and malls and anywhere else that is crowded – except for church. I am sooo happy about that! It is what it is, right.
Describe yourself in one word: Eccentric.
What is your favorite kitchen utensil and why? Wooden spoon. I love how versatile it is and how it gets seasoned with using.
What is the one thing that frightens you the most about growing old? The possibility of losing my memory to dementia/Alzheimers or losing the use of my body, as my grandmother did, to a disease like Parkinson’s. I don’t want my children to go through the hell of taking care of me as my parents did with their mothers.
I would really enjoy hearing your Manic Monday answers. Here’s to a great week filled with accomplishments and calm
