Arbor Day

Yesterday was a complicated day. I went to yoga, thank goodness. It helped a lot. I felt much more like myself again after. It was a beautiful day.

Came home, got everything ready for my mom’s surgery. Took her to Sandwich, settled in to the waiting room. This time, we made sure it was NOT shown on the monitor in the waiting room! I started reading PD James’s DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY while I waited. The place was packed today.

She was in and out very quickly. She wasn’t as bouncy on the happy drugs this time, and the whole side of her face felt numb and bruised. Got her home and settled on the deck, where she could watch me put in the strawberries and plant the poppies. I’m not happy with this batch of strawberries from Johnny’s — they came in a moldy bag and look half dead. I’m going to contact them for advice. I planted them anyway, and some of them revived this morning, but I’m not convinced we’ll have a lovely yield like we did last year.

My mom rested in the afternoon, while I was nearby. We had some complications later on, but we called the office and they talked us through what to do.

Never made it back online last night — too exhausted. We all went to bed very early. Tessa stayed with my mom all afternoon and all night, little sweetheart. She knew something was different.

Up early this morning. My mom has an early follow-up appointment. Then, I have an Arbor Day event in Hyannis and my mom has to wait for the plumber (there’s a problem with the knob in the downstairs bathroom). Might try to make an appointment this afternoon, depending on the plumber’s time frame, or might put it off until tomorrow afternoon. I’ll definitely spend time with students Tomorrow, we’re doing some clean-up in Mother’s Park, and I either have to make that other appointment in the afternoon ANd wind up things with my students, or spend time with students AND catch up on a bunch of other things.

I also have several proposals that need to go out today, and a follow up on a proposal that went out last week.

  1. VERY glad Mom’s surgery went well. Hugs and healing thoughts to her. 🙂

    Happy Arbor Day right back! I’m looking at our maple out back and loving how healthy and happy it looks. It paid to have the tree man trim the dead branches out. It’s happier for it.

  2. I’m happy to hear your mom is recovering. I hope you both are feeling much better today.
