After dinner together with Mother last Saturday night, we sat around the table telling stories. Mother shared several and we all had a good laugh. Later that night, Jocelyn suggested we start collecting "Grandma" stories and start a blog for all to enjoy. Great idea and so here is one for me to start with.
Last month, Grandma stretched out for an afternoon nap. When she woke up it was dark outside. Grandma doesn't sleep very well at nights and often will wake up in the wee hours and get to work. It still wasn't light out yet (generally it isn't at 5 during the winter) so she didn't go out to work in the yard. She dressed in her workout clothes and rode her stationary bike. She showered, did her hair, and practiced the piano (or maybe the organ). She sat down to her breakfast when the phone rang. She was surprised to get such an early call from Eileen. But she had a good chat with her telling Eileen about all things she had done yesterday, on Friday. Eileen listened for awhile and then explained to Grandma that it was STILL Friday! Not 5 AM Saturday but 5PM Friday! Grandma got a good laugh out of that but it still took awhile to convince her brain that it was evening and not early morning! Haven't we all felt discombobulated after a long afternoon nap? Now if I didn't tell this story right, I hope Grandma will add to it!
