nice visit with Mom

Good afternoon.
It's a nasty cold day today.  :-(
Yesterday, I went to Muskegon to visit my Mom.  Craig ended up going along, which is nice because he drives.  :-)   I got to read the paper to pass the time.  :-)
Gave her a much needed haircut, and took her to lunch at Applebee's. We all had their sirloin steaks which were very good! Then to the VFW for drinks and pull-tabs. We didn't have any luck on the pull-tabs.
My brother Brian and his wife Ruth stopped in for a visit.
On the way back to her apartment, we stopped to get her some groceries.
Got back to Lansing safe and sound. Traffic wasn't bad at all.
Today was our usual running around. bank, post office, and groceries for the week.
The local OfficeMax is closing, so we stopped there to pick up a few close-out items. I'm not surprised they are closing, since they never were very busy when I went in. I'll miss the convenience of them near the Salon. The next closest one is half way across town. I'll probably go to Staples.
 When I got the mail today, I received a card from Sparrow.
I had my Colonoscopy at Sparrow's St Lawrence campus.
The card was signed by everyone I came in contact with.
Now I can put a name to all the faces that had a part in looking up my butt.  :-/
I did some more painting today, while Craig did his usual laundry and bookwork.
I also checked our future flights to Vegas, and sure enough, they had switched planes for one of them and changed our seats so we weren't together. I was actually able to get us better seats for the flight. It's good I check the itineraries occasionally.
And for dinner, Craig is making a turkey rice casserole with the rest of the left over turkey.
And that's it for now.....


  1. Our local Staples closed! I couldn't believe it. They were in the same shopping center as a Kroger, a Texas Roadhouse and a Hastings. I guess placement isn't everything.

    Not surprised you didn't do well. Did Mom tell you how much she's won there this month? :-)

    That is crazy that you've had so many changes on so many flights. It's good you check and got better seats, too!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. Our OfficeMax closed. There was an Office Depot within a mile of it.
