Finally was able to make it over to visit her today. We watched The Wedding Singer and ate pizza and laughed some. Did a bit of cleaning and chatted. She is in pain and taking medicine pretty often. She enjoyed the movie and was smiling. She was so happy to see me.

I guess I posted about this because it was a major accomplishment that I finally got a car and was able to get to my mom's house. I've been so worried about her. After seeing her I felt relief.

I hadn't had a car in 4 mos. and she lives sort of far. I went through quite a lot trying to find a cheaper car in this weather. It's been very cold.

Anyhow, I plan on getting over there more. The only thing that bothers me is that she smokes and it makes me feel ill to smell it. Next time I'm taking a Glade candle and some natural spray to get rid of that smell. Her house reaks of smoke.

I want to see her so I will have to tolerate some smoke. I wouldn't complain unless it really made me sick. I have smoke induced asthma. So I took a huge dose of cough medicine before I went.

I'm feeling more "up" now since I got to see her and we had some laughs.

My mom quit smoking three weeks ago, she's been doing really well. I never thought she'd do it. I know what you mean, it stinks. It's so nice to be able to go over there and not have to immediately jump in the shower when I get home to get the smell off.

I haven't seen my dad in about a year but I think I'm going next week. This means the eyebrow ring will have to come out.

Thanks Michael, I appreciate your comment relating to visiting my mom. I, took 2 baths in less than 24 hours after being there. She admitted one thing, that she shouldn't be smoking because it's poison. But I don't know if she will ever quit at this point. Eyebrow ring, huh?

Yeah, my mom took it pretty hard. She cried and said she was disappointed and all that but she got over it. Just like when I told her I went vegetarian.


My dad though, his side of the family are Jehovah's Witnesses and I don't think they'd take it as well. I don't see him much as it is and I don't want him thinking I'm a wild child. One of my half-brothers has stuff pierced and I'm not so sure I want to be compared to him.
