Florida or Bust
I came back to Florida by way of Mom's in SC. Mom and I went shopping at Wal-mart, Dollar Store and Piggly Wiggly (where they asked me if I had my pig card and I was offended! LOL) She loves to be out and about and she was appreciative of me running her around.
Alvin has the soul responsibility of taking her to all these places, plus so many others like her Dr., the pharmacy, etc. He is amazing really. It's not easy and he does it every week. The rest of us are always SO thankful for him and Brenda. What a big responsibility and they take it in stride after many adjustments at first. I have to say that Brenda is even more amazing because she goes along and it's not her mom. (She did have to give over the tasks to Al to save her sanity eventually but Al just doesn't put up with or listen to her "stuff" and it all works out somehow. I'm so thankful that it does. Thanks Al and BB! I really don't think any of the rest of us would be up to the task (Mom, not the shopping - going part). I love her dearly but she's not easy to get along with and I know that.
I had a wonderful visit though and Al and Brenda came over so we could spend a little time together as well. I miss visiting with Al and BB when I go through there but Mom gets very jealous. She's like a child sometimes I think.
I had such a nice, relaxing trip home. I stopped at the Harley Davidson dealership in Daytona Beach to get a jacket for Bill and got a photo of Lexi with Elvis there. :) Bill loves his new jacket. I tried to get over to see Harley (our dog to be) but they weren't home so I missed that opportunity.
It was SOOOOOOOO nice getting back home into the arms of my husband and in my home. I feel so fickle about houses. I love getting to NC and home there and just bask in the magic of being back home here in Florida again. I guess I shouldn't question it. They are two such different and amazing places and I love them both.
