just call me bag lady.
every time i walk into that hospital, i am seriously juggling 10 bags. why? i don’t know, but for some reason, i feel the need to bring the kitchen sink with me when i go visit joanne. yesterday i was sporting my purse (not my small one), my trader joes bag that I have dubbed “the hospital bag” that carries magazines, greeting cards to add to the rings…..my computer bag, a large bag filled with 4 potato heads and ALL the accessories we own, and two hazelnut lattes.
i think i would have been fine, but the lattes put me over. laptop over the shoulder, purse over the other shoulder, the “hospital bag” and the potato heads in one hand, and two lattes in the other? ya, not gonna work. so i balanced one of the lattes in the potato head bag.
not such a great idea. the latte….luckily it was mine…..not jo’s…..spilled on the potato heads, and all the TINY parts, and then leaked all over my shoe. niiiice.
but we got some great potato head’s built and had a lot of laughs doing it. at my house, when you don’t know what else to do to pass the time….we build potato heads. why not?joanne of course made the man cook bacon and eggs for the lady potato head. bacon is a great way to a woman’s heart….
and then later? got schooled in wii bowling. ok, seriously. i know joanne just had a stroke and all, but her bowling game, i thought, would be a little weak. at times, we were WILLING her bowling ball to even make it to the pins. and she stilled schooled me!!!!! i was totally winning, but the second to last frame, she got a spare, and then a strike on the last frame.
toben was absolutely laughing at me…..”you got schooled by a stroke patient!!!!!”
yes, i did.
i think her wii bowling trophy needs to come and live in her hospital room…..
