It was a very nice day! I went to church with my good friend De. We walked at the Mall afterwards. I did not say a word about Beth and actually listened to my friend talk most of the time. It occurred to me that she could use a break from the constant drama that emanates from my life.
Hubby and I exchanged our valentine gifts and spent the day out to lunch and shopping. We bought lampshades which brought us joy as it is something that we can actually take charge of. We are not powerless over minor decor!
We stopped in to visit Elsie (mom-in-law). She said she felt 90 per cent good today. I helped her play cards on the computer. She used to spend hours with her peanochle but could not remember how to play. I could not figure out the commands that she needed for this game either but I switched her to Gin Rummy which was easy to figure out. After helping her with 4 or 5 hands, she could do it herself. She was happy!
My son made a valentine's dinner for his girlfriend at our house. He offered us some. We had a bite or two so as not to interfere but it was great. He can really cook well. Right now, I have some rice pudding in the oven. I love it and so does Elsie. I will take her some tommorrow.
