Sorry I haven't been around much. Mom has a new compression fracture in in her lower back. We spent all day Thanksgiving in the ER. She finally got a bed at 10pm that night. The hospital released her Friday night at 9 pm. So in addition to trying to get her settled in a facility, poor mom is in a lot of pain, and will be for a few weeks. There is very little they can give her for pain.
Mom did not feel like opening anything on Saturday BUT..she was up to it on Sunday. She opened her birthday gifts and cards and then she tackled her Gotta deal goodies.
We have receive 4 cards already, and Mom loves them all. She especially likes knowing which state they come from. We have them hanging up on the wall. Then she opened her secret santa gifts. Thank you very much Secret Santa! You were very generous and everything was very well received. (I took a couple pictures with my tablet, but will have to transfer them to the computer later to post them.
Mom received a beautiful pin and a blistix, and a dvd (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), and THREE boxes of coffee cakes!! Mom was so happy that as soon as she opened the first one, she handed me the box and said "Open this! I want one NOW" and then she promptly ate 2. ;D And some Werther's hard candies....she ate that whole bag last night.
AND she received a pretty Christmas card with a very touching note inside. Thank you so much Secret Santa! You hit the movie genre on the head. Mom loves musicals - both stage plays and movies. When I asked her what her favorites are (as you asked) she said "Music Man" and "Hello Dolly" and then "I just love them all!!" She also loves Fred Astre, Gene Kelly, and Ginger Rogers -- all those films with the song and dance routines.
Our cards just went out. 1 of 2 boxes sent. (Still waiting for a black friday purchase to arrive here so I can ship it out.)
