I am sure you all have them, right?
I have spent the last two days in the car with my mother, whom I love dearly.
But truthfully, she tests my patience.
Same questions. Same stories, things that don't make sense, neediness, a little whining.
Oh, I know, she is old, and she gets to be that way. And who knows, I may be as bad, or even worse.
But trust me, it doesn't make it easier knowing that.
Today, memorial service for a family member that passes away a couple of months ago. Tough reality that he is really gone, forever, from this world. I tell ya, it's a mine field, this life.
Tomorrow, my turn to take my mother to the Salvation Army.
What the heck?? Am I a bad person, or what??
On the brighter side, today I tried strawberries, sprinkled with a little raw sugar, spritzed with a little balsamic vinegar (mine was pear infused). Let them sit for 20 minutes.
Oh my, they were simply divine.
And maybe it's me, it probably is......but I will never understand organized religion, never, as long as I live.
Thankfully, their churches are often quite lovely, which I find makes going there bearable.
I have been on the road three days this week, and I am really looking forward to NO traveling this coming week. I am honestly looking forward to MONDAY.
And did I tell you, that Roy is SO spoiled, that even though I only have ONE FREAKING MONKEY in the studio, even though there are lines of people waiting for them, ROY has his very own.
It's a wonderful thing.
Roy is actually doing quality control.
