Someday soon I'll be able to catch up on reading everyone's latest posts. I'm not really sure when that will be, but I do know that whenever it is, I'll probably have to spend an entire day (or twelve) doing nothing but reading and commenting!
We're going to Hartselle this weekend to see the fam. We haven't been up since we were up on Dec. 20th for Christmas. I know, I know...we're bad kids!! (I won't tell you how long it's been since we've been to Oakman...)
For any of you who don't know, John's mom (Billie) has Alzheimer's. She hasn't progressed to the point of not knowing any of us yet, but she constantly asks the same questions and tells the same things to us. She used to get really frustrated because she would tell us and then remember that she had probably already told us, but the last couple of times we've been up there, she hasn't even done that.
Connie (my SIL) called the other day and said that Billie had tried to call her 15 times that day. Connie said that most of the time, Billie doesn't even remember why she called. Or she'll ask Connie how she's feeling, even though she may have just asked her that same thing a short time before. I'm not sure if Billie calls Danny or Tim that often. I know she doesn't call John that much. I think there is just something different with Connie being the daughter.
Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!
