The Nursing Home Funnies


I’ve recently been going to our local nursing home to visit a relative who needs to stay there while he gets Physical Therapy and I have to say…I am thoroughly enjoying our visits with some of the other residents.

My new friend Emma is just a hoot.  This woman has it all together and she makes sure everyone else does too.  She’s sharp as a tack.  Every day she wheels into everyone’s rooms every day to make sure they’re all stocked up on Kleenex and other essentials.  If not, she’s off in her wheelchair to bring them more.

In one of our conversations, I asked her if she has children and then grandchildren.  She said yes, she has children, but no grandchildren.

She said, and I quote…”They’re getting to be past the age where they can have kids.”

I looked at her quizzically and said “How old are they?”

She responded “68 and 64”.

 

Today, take time to laugh.

Happy Valentine’s Day to my wonderful, loving, blanket stealing husband!  LOL!

Of course you know me, there’s a story behind everything…

Tim and I have an ongoing joke that he steals all the blankets, while he says “Noooooo – you push them over!”

And then we both smile with a twinkle in our eyes!

OK, in full disclosure, I do push them over…when my feet are burning hot!

Uh – oh!

 He’s going to read this and then I’ll be in for some gloating…I’ve admitted guilt!

Happy Valentine’s Day to my amazing gift from God!

Signed, Just Me 🙂

And now for my daughters…

You are all my favorites!

My favorite Alex…

My favorite Sam…

My favorite Gabi…

{This will drive them crazy}

At some point or another, they’ve each asked told me ‘Come on, just admit it Mom…I’m your favorite…just say it once!’

There’s one in particular that continues to push – not naming names…

but it’s the artistic middle child o’ mine! 🙂

I LOVE YOU ALL EQUALLY – for all the incredibleness that you are!

I love you to the moon and back…

and the Milky Way and back…

and the entire Universe and back!

{Yes, we used to argue about who loved who more}

{sigh}

Happy Valentine’s Day girls!
