My apologies to my regular readers about the paucity of posts. I have been spending most of my spare time with child care and taking care of the Maltese. The Maltese adores me and the Tranquil Sea, but can be very mean if someone approaches either of us while we sleep.
I have been reading Wafa Sultan's book in my spare moments hat tip to AOW.
My mom has the big C again but it is early. Keep me in your prayers. I did get my head handed to me by her for telling the daughter not to call. Sometimes the Sprite gets mischievous and will grab my phone and push the button that says Mom. Apparently, even though she is sick an odd phone call or two is not a hassle. I am still less than thrilled with her asking my mother to send cookies or wanting to visit when she is sick. My mother actually has a bag of chicken fingers for such visits.
I would like my mother to rest. My mother seems to enjoy the phone calls and wants more time with the Sprite even though she is not well. I am also not exactly certain how my mother even understands what my daughter is saying as she will often veer into West Indian Creole English and talk of strange words like Bora and Gilbacker. I understand exactly what these items are. What my mother thinks they are remains a mystery.
