Visiting My Aunt In The Nursing Home

My mom and I, went down to visit my aunt my mom's sister. She just got out of the hospital last weekend and went home. Thursday they decided to have her go back into the nursing home that my cousin, Johnny works at. Johnny and his wife were not able to help take care of my Aunt Sandy's needs at house. Today, Aunt Sandy was not doing good. Johnny texted me on our way back home that the nursing home is having Aunt Sandy taking to the hospital. She looked bad when we got down to the nursing home but was looking better when we left. It is sad seeing my aunt go down hill and know she does not have long to live.

The nursing home where my cousin works looks really nice. They just added on to the nursing home and remodeled a little. I wish I was going there for happier things. Nursing homes and hospitals make my skin crawl. I always feel dirt after I visit one no matter how clean they are.

After left from visiting Aunt Sandy at the nursing home, we stopped at a restaurant called the White House in Rutherford College, North Carolina. The restaurant is in a old white house on the side of the road. They serve Italian food. I had the chicken parmigiana with a house salad. It was not the best I ever had but it was good. My mom and I got really good service from our waitress.

Outside of my aunt not doing good, mom and I had a good trip. I keep saying I need to go down around where my aunt and cousin live and just explore and take pictures. It is beautiful country down there.

Not Doing Too Good On Bloging

I planned to be posting on the Mountain Highs and Valley Lows more regularly this year. This past month has been really busy for me. I have been working more overtime then expected for this time of year at work. I also have been taking trips down to see my aunt who has been in and out of the hospital the past couple months. I have planned out time to work on the blog then I would have things come up or a would crash from all the things going on right now. I have have pictures and idea ready to do a post and get side tracked taking care of something else. I decided to do a quick post before work today since I had a little time since it is raining and I cannot mow the grass as I planned to do today. I really need to work on my time management.

I do have a have several things planned for the coming months. I am thinking of taking trips to Charleston, South Carolina, Cowpens, South Carolina, and Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Mom told me that she wanted to go to Charleston this year and I always enjoyed my trips to Charleston and want to tour it more. Cowpens is battlefield of a battle from the American Revolutionary War. I want to go to Gatlinburg to see how they are doing after the wildfires. I have been talking with Seth about going swimming and hiking. Seth will have to take it easy this year since he is recovering from breaking his leg. I am also planning on starting to post on my Spiritual Places, Spiritual Moments blog begin. If I can get myself moving early enough, I plan to go to different places on my way to work to take the pictures for the blog. Then working on getting the pictures posted on the blog. It is just a matter of getting started.

I am close to getting one of my debts paid off and one of my bills is going to drop by $30 soon. These to things will free up a little money to start working on a couple other projects I want to start this year. I should enjoy it once I get these things started. I am trying to decide on how to do some of the things but I figured that get the debt paid off and the bill lowered will give me enough money to get things started. I just hope I can disciple myself with my time and get things done.
