The last few years we have been going after Christmas, but Don will be heading north for work on January 2 so we decided to take advantage of us both not working the week prior instead.
On Saturday we headed out and stopped in Battleford to see my mom. We took her out for lunch, where my niece Jen met us. Jen is currently my mom’s roomie, and they make a fabulous pair, supporting each other. Mom fell at work this fall and she is still recuperating, so I am glad that Jen is able to stay with her and help out and just watch over her.
We arrived at mom and dad’s just in time for supper. On Sunday I drove to Prince Albert and had brunch with my sister Ginger and her partner Chris. After brunch I visited a bit longer with Ging at her house and saw Alisa and Sonny.
That same day Ken and Brenda came to visit us in Tisdale and we took mom and dad out for dinner, with Terry joining us.
Monday Don and I spent at Ron and Bev’s place and Tuesday evening I had a fantastic visit with who I call the “Hainstock girls”. There are 4 four girls in the family, two of which I met for coffee. Kathy and I are the same age, and Donna is a few years older. We laughed so much, talking about our families, our kids and life in general. It was so goo to see them.
That was a lot of visiting for a few days, and by Wednesday morning I was happy to be heading home and started preparing in my mind for Christmas to come. All I had left to do when we get home is a small grocery pick up and a bit of wrapping. Can’t wait for Christmas…. We did stop again at my mom’s for a quick perogy break!!
