Happy Friday! Thanks so much to everybody who commented and entered the giveaway. I will post the winner FIRST THING on Monday morning as I'm going to take a little time away this weekend.
I met with the folks at "Ned's house" yesterday morning to set his goals. It was a very productive meeting and he has already charmed the socks off of all of them. Mr. Herman, who is there in the late afternoon and evening is taking Ned to a Wildlife and Sports Expo on Saturday. They're going to look at fishing rods so that they can spend some time at the pond.
We're going to hunt down a bicycle for him this weekend. Ned used to ride around the yard and so if it's true that we NEVER forget how to ride a bike, he and Mr. Herman will have a nice time riding around the beautiful grounds of Green Grove. Ned looks a little bit tired but that's to be expected...he's had more stimulation in the past six days than in the past six weeks. He's having a little trouble falling asleep but it seems to get a some better each night.
Mother is confused, as would be expected, but is in the BEST mood. She seems to think that she has been at Green Grove for MUCH longer than six days and goes on and on about how delicious the food is and how nice and friendly the people are. She is very comfortable in her two rooms and has completely forgotten about the "mean girl" issue. Nevertheless, I had a nice chat with the head nurse, Bonnie, during my visit and they are VERY well aware that Mrs. Velma Bucket (the self-proclaimed hall leader) is a first class bossy busybody and whiny whackadoodle. Bonnie assures me that she had a LONG talk with Mrs. Bucket and everything should be fine.
It is such a blessing that Mother and Ned are finally safe and happy...and such a blessing that the weekend is here so that Hank and I can get a little bit of well-deserved rest.
You, my blog readers and friends are also blessings. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your support over the past several weeks. Next week, I promise a return to a bit of fun and frivolity.
Have a FANTABULOUS weekend...
