"Obama's my man!" Helen said exuberantly as she was pulling clothes out of the washing machine and into the dryer. "I'm voting as soon as I get off."
I smiled. I didn't tell her who I voted for. She didn't ask. I've learned... don't ask, don't tell. Politics are so personal and polarizing.
Mom was still in the bed at 10:30 PM. They leave tomorrow for Washington D.C. to see my brother and his family. I wasn't asked to go. Such trips exasperate my mother causing much time in bed.
"Are you going to get groceries?" I asked as I sat down next to her on the bed.
"Noon," mom said with her cat, Muffin, laying on her hip.
I walked in the bathroom to get my two Tylenol PM to take and today's dosages of regular Tylenol and aspirin. That is my day so far.
