Friday evening I went to Stations of the Cross at church as is my practice during Lent. I reflected that it is a little like being a witness for Christ. It is the tiniest thing I can do to recognize the magnitude of the Cross. It was the usual crowd of about 20 souls. Then I came home and played with blogger templates and really
Saturday I slunk back to Weight watchers and vowed to try try try again. I grocery shopped. Then while hubby was out in the afternoon, I worked on the blog again and tried the neat new template designer thing again. I didn't try the dandelion again which really messed up on Friday night. I am doing this pink which is pretty, but not really me. I talked via cell phone to my son, The Moose, and told him about his grandma's surgery next week and that his other grandma who is in a nursing home is once again in the hospital. He chided me for not informing him, and I reminded him that he often doesn't answer when I call, so if he wants to stay in the loop, it is on him. That shut him up. I said it nicely too.
Sunday was more of the usual and then more of that. I got in touch with my sister to organize who is going to be there for Mom's surgery and recovery next week. She is staying over night Tuesday before surgery. I am going up Wednesday and staying until Saturday or Sunday. It doesn't seem exactly equitable distribution, but that is not what we are called to do, is it? Still, I dread spending Wednesday through Saturday up there in Mom's little apartment taking care of her. Enjoy this time with her, do what you can for her while she is in the land of the living, I say to myself. Maybe it won't be so bad. Maybe it will be great. Think positive.
And Sunday I noticed that the template designer on blogger was missing. Had they withdrawn it? Were there too many bugs? Does that mean I was stuck with Barbie pink forever? Or would it come back someday with dandelions and other joys? And then there it was so I switched to blue. I really like this template designer thingy.
If I take the laptop with me to Q this week maybe I can blog using wireless at McD's. You never know. I could switch colors on my blog until the cows come home.
