Rosemary

Well, as it was Wednesday night, it was volunteer and agility night. For added chaos, I decided I needed to work out before the events of the evening transpired. I have re-committed to working out, and am really starting to see the effects. I was going to skip today...until I put this one shirt on this morning (which I totally love) and it fit better than ever! It is a WHBM shirt that buttons from the inside, so a little difference goes a long way..I love the shirt. Loved it even more after seeing it on me today! So, I just did the elliptical for 30 min, but it was something.

Tonight, we really only made it down one side of the hall. In particular, we spent about 25 min in this one room...and I don't regret a single minute we spent in there. There were 2 older ladies - one significantly older than the other. The younger of the 2 remembered us, but I did not remember her. She had been moved since we had been there last, and had a new roomie, Rosemary. Rosemary was in the ladies room when we got there, and this lady kept saying, I hope Rosemary gets done so she can see the dog. I swear she said it 10 times.

Well, out comes Rosemary - this little tiny thing with a walker, sort of hunched over, probably somewhere in her 80's for sure. She was on a mission to get back to bed, so she could see Chelsie - to the point where nurse Kori (one of our regulars) had to slow her down and tell her to watch where she was going with her walker. She reminded me so much of my grandma...sort of resembled her, her hands looked the same, she used phrases my grandma used... For all my readers that don't know, my mom's mom lived with us from the time I was 4 until her passing in 2002, so she was essentially a third parent. Seeing Rosemary made me miss my grandma...a lot.

As usual, I was very, very proud of Chelsie. She made the day better for a whole bunch of people tonight.

After than, on to agility - LOTS OF WEAVE POLES TONIGHT!! She is passed out on the floor...her mom is getting ready to pass out in bed....

Oh, that warms my heart to think how you two touch the lives of so many! On a side note, I need to go to WHBM - can you believe I don't have anything from that store - hear it is great!
