One Week From Today, Can't come soon enough for me.

Friday, October 22, 2010

Just one week from today, counting the days until Dale and I leave for a visit with our daughter, Jessica and her family. Our visits are too few for my liking, but all we can get for the time being is one visit every 6-8 weeks. It is so hard for us to get away because we have to find someone to sit with Maw Pye for us to go. The only person we can rely on is one of her nieces who is not well herself and is up in her 70s. Don't know how much longer we will be able to count on her to relieve us for our visits to see Jessica, Mitch and Logan.

I am expecting company from Lafayette today. Dale's brother, Daniel and his wife Brenda are coming to visit Maw Pye today. Usually, I would be busy in the kitchen preparing a meal for company at this time. But Momma was adamant that I not cook today. So to keep the peach, I am not cooking today. She wants us to get take out instead. I feel guilty not to be cooking for them, I always cook a nice meal when they come. I think that they will expect that, and will be disappointed to be served take out food. I know I would be. Oh well, I will get over it. I just don't know what I will be able to eat from wherever she decides she wants to get take out from. Thinking I should just fix my lunch and let them eat the take out as she wishes, but I worry that will upset her. So I am not sure what I should do at this point. Should I just go with the flow and say the heck with it and eat take out with them, or fix myself something more appealing and healthier to eat. Some dilemma ha!

    If you're picking up take-out, pick out some things you can enjoy too. Maybe make a nice green salad at home and then have a little of whatever's going around. It's hard when food is the center of the get together, just stay away from the pecan pie, you 'll do ok.
