It's hard to believe another week has already come and gone. I ended up working four days this week and visiting Mom every night at the hospital. On Thursday evening they finally moved her out of the SICU and into a regular room. Hallelujah! She is still not back 100% mentally, but I hope that continues to improve. She will need physical therapy to regain the use of her arms and legs, but she is much better than she was.
When school let out this week at 3:00 we would make the mad dash home to get home by 3:30 and try to make something quick to eat and be out the door by 4:15 to get to her hospital room by 5:00 for the 30 minute visiting time. I made simple things for dinner like Salmon Salad Sandwiches, and Bean & Cheese Burritos. One night I took the frozen Mexican Rice I keep in the freezer and microwaved it and added canned chili and cheese and sour cream and made wraps with them.
Anything I could make easily was what we had for dinner. And it worked! We did not eat out any time this past week and I am tickled over that fact. At the end of the week I usually have a couple of receipts to enter into my checkbook, but not this week! And if we did it this week, we can do it again. :)
How are things with you this week?
