Oh Grandma, you're so funny
Yesterday on my way to my part-time job, I gave my mom a call. She was at the hospital with my grandma. What?! Thanks for the phone call, mother. I guess everything was fine, so no one called so we wouldn't be worried; and my mom hates talking on the phone so that's the other reason I'm sure. Anyway, my mom had taken my grandma in on Friday for chest pains and they were doing some checking to see what was going on. Turns out she is fine, probably just caused by some stress because she was recently helping take care of her sister who was not feeling well. As I'm talking to my mom, I can here my grandma saying in the background to make sure and tell me that she'd be home on Friday. I'm planning to head to my parents for Labor Day weekend and Friday was going to be my day with grandma beings my mom will be working and dad probably farming. She wanted to make sure that I knew that Friday plans would still be happening! She is where I get my need to never miss out on anything. She doesn't like to miss out either and we'd often like to be a few places at once. I love that gal. Last summer when I spent the day with her we had so many laughs. Like how I wore running shorts and went for a run that morning, got to her place, showered, and realized I forgot to pack underwear. I had to borrow a pair (new ones, but still grandma style). Then we went to bingo at the senior center and I got carded for lunch to make sure I paid the full price, not the senior discount price. Sometimes people tell me I look as young as the kids at school and that day I was mistaken for 65! Hopefully we can go to bingo on Friday! I guess this doesn't really relate to our journey, but I sure hope I can get her a couple more great-grand-kids someday, and it was just a really cute story about my grandma.
