Mothers Day Quarantine

Hello, hello, hello. Its been about a month since I last updated because in the middle of a quarantine there’s not much to say. Where have we gone…nowhere. What have we done…nothing. Who have we seen…no one. You get the idea. Ive been extremely careful about where I go, so basically I stay home. My health is progressively getting better (normal) and Im back on the trial drugs so just a little sleepy here and there. I did get to pick up Miles in NJ and that was terrific. I was so relieved to have him home.

Last weekend Sam bought a new car because his 14 yr old one has finally said “No thank you” to driving around. We then proceeded to go to Arthur Ave in the Bronx for a drive out (probably not one of our smarter moves) but we really wanted to take the new wheels for a spin and Sam suggested the Avenue. I wasn’t going to get out of the car, but we found a spot on the street and Sam actually parked in it. On the street. In the Bronx. Day 2 of new car. Who is this guy and where did he put my husband? Not everything was open, but we got some deli stuff and some pastries (we were the only people in the shop) and we all felt like we had been on vacay for the day. We were missing the Zoo and the Botanical Garden and are anxious for them to reopen, like everyone else.

This weekend was Mothers Day and it was the best ever. Miles made a superb breakfast and we all played Monopoly in the morning. Sammy won and was very proud. Gma came over and actually behaved herself. We played cards outside, had lots of cocktails and the boys made a great dinner for us. Gma then brings up how when she dies she wants to be cremated, and with me. So even when I die, there she’ll be. Then she wants a “tea”. Please don’t ask what that is bc who knows. Always something to look forward to with her.

Here she is bundled up like a gnome playing cards.
Me and the Boys
Discussing the funeral, hopefully I won’t kill her soon…

I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day and that you are holding up during this crazy time. Its been hard but the one thing I know is that Im grateful for my family and that we are all here together.
