Each time I walk in, Mom looks at me and slowly recognition registers and she says "Oh for God's sake, what are you doing here". I tell her that I came to see her, she asks how I knew where to find her, I tell her I keep track of her, she says I always did take good care of her. Then she takes me by the hand so I can meet "her gang". I am introduced to everyone as her sister and then we sit in "Mom's living room" and visit for a while. Her "gang" grows as more and more of them join us in the "living room". It is like a coffee klatch without the coffee. I visit until it is time for the next activity that is scheduled and then leave her and "the gang" in the kind, capable hands of the activities director, Pauline.
That routine is down pretty pat now....my routine at home...not so much. I still feel lost some of the time, like my life has no direction. I have asked Frank to reestablish my membership to the gym for my birthday. I am hoping this helps me to regain my routine I had before life circumstances blew it to smithereens. I will get up, get my morning routine out of the way, go to a class at the gym and then stop and see Mom afterwards. At least that is the way I am imagining it right now....time will tell. Life is filled with surprises!!
