Retail Therapy

Mom spent her first night in the Odd Fellows Home.
I think she will grow to like her room.
They each have an assigned seat in the dining room.
Their meals are served family style.
When she went to dinner at 5:30,
I found myself downtown.
There are some sweet little shops...
Just right for browsing.
I didn't even feel like I needed to buy anything.
I just wanted to look...and forget about the work to do at mom's apartment.

There, don't you feel better already?!

Take care,
~Natalie

I hope your Mom starts feeling at home soon. What an adjustment for both of you.

What a neat shop you visited. I could see a few things there that I would like.

I am happy to hear your mom is adjusting well to her move. I know it can sometimes be difficult to leave the comfort of your home.

Thanks for sharing, Natalie.

Take care.

Great pictures from your shopping trip. I'm sure it was nice to take a few minutes for yourself. So glad your mom is getting settled in.

You're almost there...I'm glad your mom is doing so well. It's not an easy time for you or your family, but your love--that you give and that you receive--gives you strength.

Beautiful shopping trip--I loved that store!

Nothing better to get your mind off of things than piddling around a colorful store!
