Momma, didn't ask....she TOLD my sister " Boni needs a break, so from now on you can pick me up every Wednesday and I'll stay for dinner." Wooooo Hoooooo! Way to go Momma!
I also got 3 days at my brothers beach house, when Mom insisted the other sister come visit, so she could talk to her "face to face" and "set her straight" about how well she is being taken care of, and how much it actually took TO take care of her.
I guess momma WAS listening. She did good.
I think the lesson is.... we ALL need breaks but if we don't ASK or TELL people that we do, they might be oblivious, or just plain too selfish to realize it on their own.
I hope YOU all get some day's off and day's away. It's done me a world of good!
