I'm back!

It has been so long since I posted, I've kind of lost track of where I was on everything.  My mom had an accident on Easter Sunday after we had just finished serving our Easter Brunch.  We were all tired after serving over 250 customers and she fell down the bottom half of a long set of wooden stairs.

I learned that she is truly one of the strongest women I have ever met, she got up off that floor, went home and celebrated Easter with her family; then she let me take her to the E.R.  At the E.R. I learned she's a real pansy when it comes to needles and IV's and she has absolutely no tolerance for drugs of any kind.  She is probably the cheapest date in town, one shot of Benadryl and she was just silly!  We learned that she hadn't broken her ankle or ribs like we thought, but she had suffered a compression fracture of her T10 vertebra.  She couldn't get into the neurosurgeon until today to find out what they can do to relieve the pain, so for the last two weeks she has been drugged or in debilitating pain.  I have been working nearly non-stop the last two weeks, logging into overtime hours; let's just say that everything else fell to the wayside.  If Easter was busy, Mother's day was just stupid!!  It took a lot of work and planning to do Mother's Day with Mom drugged and in pain, once again; pure stubbornness carried her through the day.  Everyone stepped up and stepped in, even her grandsons worked extra hard.  I love my family, we are a team!

I'm just gonna post some of the pictures I've taken over the last two weeks.  I've never had my camera far, but I was so busy that I don't think I got one every day.  I'm just gonna pick up where I left off after this.
