My new Job

For the first time in almost 8 years, I have a regular part-time job again. It's the best job anyone can hope for in my situation. Once a week, I get to hang out with great grandma Helen. Ginger gets to come with me, which really makes the whole thing work.

So Thursday night, I went to bed before 10pm, so I would be able to get up by 5.30. I wasn't sure whether traffic would be bad, so I gave myself an hour to get there (it usually takes 45 min). Well, traffic wasn't bad, and I got there a little early.

When we arrived, grandma was still in bed, so we watched a little bit of TV. After breakfast, grandpa Earl was awake, so Ginger hung out with him for a bit. They watched a movie together, ate a snack together, and had some good bonding time. I woke grandma up for breakfast, and she went back to bed again after that. I read my book, and took a nap. It was nice.

The afternoon was a little more action packed. I curled her hair, and teased it (like her hairdresser does). We had lunch, and filled the rest of the day with 2 games of "hand and foot". Ginger took a nap. Then it was cooking dinner, cleaning up. By the time I left at 7.30pm, it had been a long day, but a good day.

What a "job". Taking care of my Mom was the best "job" I ever had. I am so happy that Ginger gets to go with you and spend that time with The Greats. Audree had that experience when she was little, it makes a difference. (((hugs)))

Very cool. A definite perk of living close to the parentals.
