Jillian here. I am leaving on Thursday for a wedding in Texas. Who sets their wedding the Saturday before Easter? This is so crazy. It’s a must-attend event for me as it is my cousin’s son and I think of her children as nephews ( and a niece) since she and I are so close. But, it upsets my mother especially that I won’t be home for Easter. I know I’ll have a great time but then there’s that whole mom-guilt thing hanging around. LOL
I figure one of two things happened with this wedding. Either they picked their date and sent out the “save the date” cards before realizing it was Easter weekend or they decided deliberately to have it Easter Saturday so people would send their regrets and they wouldn’t need to feed them. LOL! I am quite sure the second one wasn’t it! 🙂
In other news, my mother had to have her middle toe amputated on her right foot. She’s had some issues with it for a while and the infection spread to the bone. They recommended she have it off to avoid it spreading to other bones. It was pretty scary what could have happened.
Her surgery was scheduled for 5:30 PM on a Wednesday. They called her at 10:00 AM to see if she could come early as they had a cancellation. When she got there and they asked if she’d eaten, she said she had had some toast and milk at 7:00 AM. They then said since she ate, she’d have to wait until 5:30 PM after all (why they didn’t ask before she went over there, I don’t know). She was a bit miffed at that but then the doctor came in and said he could do it under local anesthesia if she wanted to go ahead.
The crazy woman said, “Yes.” What in the world is wrong with her??? The mere thought of that gives me the heebie-jeebies. But she went on and had it done. She said she could hear him sawing away. *shudders*
My son said she did it “Civil War style” and the doctor told my dad that she “Is one brave lady.” Me? I think she’s one nutty lady. 🙂
Anyway, she’s better and told me on Friday that she goes to the doctor again on Wednesday and he’s going to tell her if she’s allowed to drive. Then in the next sentence, she told me she’d driven to my nephew’s house. *shaking my head*- see what I mean? She’s certifiable. LOL! But I love her!!
Catch ya in April!!
