Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers. I wish you much happiness today.

Thought I'd update you a little on Mom. She has done fairly well since her ankle healed up last year, but in the last week, I've seen her fail quite a bit. I was shocked when I saw her today. I just saw her on Tuesday and she seemed to look good and was doing okay. Today, her face was drawn and she looked like a really old lady. Well, she is 87 and will be 88 in September, but she looked worse today than some people do at 100. I think she may have taken another mini stroke. She is really having a lot of trouble in certain areas, which I won't go into here. However, anyone who has been around Senior's will get the idea. 

I picked Brandon up today from work today and he really dislikes the new Assistant Manager. Apparently, she is spying on him and his co-worker and is reporting them to the Garden Center Manager on a daily basis. He's getting tired of it and so is his co-worker. She has only been there 3 weeks and is disliked by everyone. I told him to stick it out. If she is that disliked, she won't be there long, as the Manager won't put up with it. He prides his store on Customer Service and this new AM told Brandon to do work and ignore the customers unless they specifically ask for help? What kind of work ethic does this woman have? How did she get to be an AM with an attitude like that. Anyway, we will see how it goes, but I'm going to talk to his Employment Support Worker. Maybe she can contact the Manager and find out what gives. 

After I got home, hubby and I went out to buy a fan to replace the one that quite last year in late August. It was 101F in our upstairs earlier this evening and that is with a window AC. 

That is all the news for today except I took Mom flowers for Mother's Day and Brandon got me some as well. Pretty Gerba Daisies. 

Thursday, May 7

It's been over a year since I posted here and it's time to update everyone.

Brandon worked in a garden center last year and then Toys R Us at Christmas. He loves the garden center but didn't care for Toys R Us. He got laid off at the end of December and they were very happy with his work performance, so he could go back this September. I don't think he will if he can find something else.

He got an excellent reference from the garden center and the manager told him to come back this March and let him know if he'd like to work for them again. He did and started on the 12th of April. He loves it.

Jordan is in his last year of high school, which is hard to believe. It seems like yesterday that the boys were starting school. He's doing much better this year but now there is a danger the secondary school teachers will walk off the job in a strike action and he will lose his year. That is maddening, as the kids get out in just a little over a month. They will have to either go to summer school to make up the time or repeat their semester in the fall.

As for hubby and I, we are doing okay. We are both home and sometimes that makes for seeing too much of each other. I work on my Etsy shop but he needs a hobby.

Well, I'll keep it short and sweet. Nothing else much going on around here.

I miss blogging and miss many of my friends here. I hope to get back soon.
