Today was awful. I went to order new eyeglasses and while I was there my mom’s nurse called and said she wasn’t doing well. I finished up and went home.
I made some frozen shrimp for a quick lunch. Then I called my dad again to say we were coming over and he answered and said my mom had just died.
Of course we rushed over and stayed with him. I made all the arrangements and then we came home. It’s all a bit surreal.
We weren’t sure what to do about dinner but figured it would be about as quick to make something as it would be to figure out a place that was open for take out. Anyway, we came home and Matt made bison burgers, tots and we had a bagged salad.
Then we made brownies. My mom had such a sweet tooth and loved to bake!
I visited my mom this morning and then came home to make lunch.
I heated up the leftover pork chops, slaw mix and tossed it with some mi goreng (really the best pandemic purchase has been that case of noodles).
For dinner Matt made Maryland style fried chicken with my grandpop’s secret ingredient—a little bit of granulated chicken bouillon sprinkled into the flour—and cornbread and salad. We have so much chicken leftover! I didn’t eat too much of it since we had pork for lunch.
Then we watched The Invisible Man on Netflix DVD and the first bit of a new New Zealand/Canadian show on Acorn.
Today I planned leftover red rice and squash for lunch and put up pork for quesadillas in the slow cooker before I went to Aldi for the big grocery shop.
Good thing I did because the hospital called while I was there and I was able to see my mom in the hospital today and we set up hospice. It looks like she might be home tomorrow!
I had a few bites of lunch and had to leave.
I spent the day setting everything up and Matt made quesadillas with portobello mushrooms and the pork. Then we finished Mr Robot.
I’m exhausted, just grocery shopping is a lot right now and then it was the hospital (the only one in the area that allows visitors!) and calls to get a hospital bed delivered and a long meeting at the hospital.
I’m not sure what we are doing for food tomorrow at all. There is a tiny bit of pork left and I’m going to my parents’ for her arrival so I don’t know when I’d be home.
