Mom sent Helen to my house with banana sandwiches and chips at noon. Today is grocery day and I had exhausted all my food.
"She's gone to get your groceries now," Helen said. "And I am so glad to be off work."
"Your house is clean, baby," Helen then said as we sat down in my den.
"I was a whirlwind yesterday cleaning everything," I replied.
"What makes your momma sleep so much?" Helen then asked surprising me.
"It is her medicine for her mental illness," I replied. "It makes her very sleepy and groggy."
"Ah," Helen said. "I didn't know that."
We then talked about what I wanted for lunch tomorrow.
"Surprise me," I told her. "Helen, you could cook a dishrag and it would taste good."
Helen finally left and I was sad to see her go. The company was nice for a moment there. Now, to wait on mom and my groceries. I have my heart set on a piece of chocolate creme pie.
