Mom's House: Day Five

9:09 a.m. Mom cried this morning when she learned my late Grandma’s Christmas ornaments were destroyed/thrown out after someone broke in the shed some time back.

Since then, my memory has been playing with me, in that way that you don’t know if it really happened, or you really wish so much it happened and are thereby assuring yourself it did.

After Grandma passed, I seem to recall my sister going through some Christmas stuff and taking some, and me as well.

I told Mom Jen might’ve salvaged it.

And I’m thinking I remembering putting some of Grandma’s old ornaments on my own tree. And I want to give them to her, if such is the case.

I asked April to separate them out for me, just any ornaments that aren’t hers, but I don’t think she or Rob is awake right now because they haven’t answered me. If not, I can at least try.

9:30 a.m. Going out for breakfast shortly. 😍

10:39 a.m. Breakfast ordered! Now we wait. Got orange juice, water, fruit, sausage, cheese grits and cheese scrambled eggs.

Oh, and Mom got Scarlet and I am adorable initial mini snow globe with golden glitter flakes. 😂 Descriptive enough?

11:18 a.m. So very very full. We’re almost done. Food was good. 

11:40 a.m. I had a huge mishap. Outside I decided to try and entertain Scarlett with my snow globe.

And Mom warned me to be careful.

And it dropped. And it busted.

Thanks be to God, in Jesus Name, they kindly cleaned it up, replaced it (with a ‘C’ they actually had to go in the back to get) and boxed it (instead of bagged) with extra tissue paper for extra security. Amazingly kind. They don’t normally do something like that and I made sure to give them all my gratitude. 

I also apologized profusely to them and to the fam, for the holdup and trouble this caused. Will just move on from it, I suppose. 😅

We’re on our way home now. Waiting to hear from April or Rob before I go out there. As the door may be locked and I need to be assured I can get in. 

12:07 Home!

2:21 p.m. Chilled for a bit. Then we went to my house and got what I needed. Mom waited in the car while I hurried (even though she told me I didn’t need to rush) 

April dragged out the closet for me and searched for any ornaments that she knew weren’t hers.

My late Grandma’s ornaments weren’t found. :( But Mom was okay about it. Thank and Praise the Lord.

We’re on our way to Amscot, then Sam’s Club right now, and then home.

I’m so ready for this cruise! Four days to goooo. God willing.  And Mom kindly rented me my own pavilion on the island That’s some kind of awesome birthday gift!

P.S. Also I couldn’t find my portable brick charger, (in case my iPod dies at the beach) but Mom says she has one I can borrow on the trip at home, so that’s awesome. 

P.S.S. My iPod is dying. I had the option to bring it before we left, but we were already in the driveway. It was wet. I didn’t feel like going back in to get it. My loss.?😂😬

6:45 p.m. Long since got back from Sams Club. Got a pack of water, chicken salad, boneless chicken, and more. 

Came home. Brought stuff in. Chilled and watched the Pauly Shore film ‘In the Army.’ Ate pizza. 

I repacked my suitcase, gathered dirty clothes, showered, dressed. Now watching The Sixth Sense alone in Mom’s room cause I’m not interested in the adult content associated with John Wick. 😂😂

Mom won’t be here tomorrow. Working. And Scarlett has a babysitter. So...I got a day to myself it looks like. Sort of.

Mom said I may have to help her out a bit, but we’ll see how it goes. 😉

All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
