So my Mom left for home yesterday morning.
We had a very nice visit,
but she does not agree with animals being in the house
and well really has a phobia about the hair.
I did everything I could to keep them away from her.
Stinky the cat I got from the farm, By day 2 she said she should have given me a short haired cat!
Sparky our little Jack Russell, well he is a little too hyper for Mom,
and well Kula he is too hairy and wierd shaped.
I said to Mom that if I did not have Kula, I would not feel safe when I was having my Major Cataplexy Spells!
So kind of a funny story, we went out for Chinese food and she was sitting in the front of the truck beside me and she shows me her mitt and says look, there is hair from all 3, I say how can you tell, so the differences were pointed out. Anyway on the way home, she says to my husband. Oh look, there is a dog. I say Mom it is a fire hydrant. Then I say , Mom if you can't see a fire hydrant, how can you see three hairs on your mitts, Anyway we all laughed and I think she got the point.
I knew my Dad was watching over us, just chuckling and shaking his head.
He loved pets and animals,
and when they use to come to visit
He would tell us,
Kids we are all supposed to wash our hands, we have been petting the dogs,
And he would just chuckle and shake his head!
Funny how certain things can really bother people, but we had a good visit and the first day she was fine,
by day 2 I could tell she was starting to get miffed,
I explained that Mom if you come in the summer they can stay outside,
but the temperature is minus 41,
they have to stay inside.
The only thing that saved us was the fact I stocked up on those sticky roller brushes to remove hair and lint,
and I kid you not by Day 3 she was carrying it around with her continuously.
I took no offense to any of this though, as I knew she was trying her best
And so was I, and well look at my pets,
They just were hoping for some loving from Grandma.
Last night they slept on our bed with us.
Just one big happy family.
I know today my Mom will be washing all her clothes and then all will be well in her world again.
She really did better than I expected
and I love her for trying!
May we all accept our differences and love one another just as they are.
We really had a nice visit.
Reflected on the past,
And talked about our future.
Have a great day!
