Mom got her sling off today and can now do most things for herself and she can drive. I don't know which one of us was happier, her to be able to use her arm more and start doing different exercises...or me that she can now do so many things on her own and I don't have to be doing everything for her all the time.

It's nice not to be tied down to the house all the time anymore and have some of my autonomy back. It's been rough at times, but Mom started talking family histories and showing me photos and it was really interesting. She's going to dig out the family trees as I've been wanting to do an ancestry account for a while now.

There is nothing financial to report. We didn't spend any money on anything at all. We did go to the library, but we were only doing drop/hold pick up and they have certain parking slots that are free for 10 minutes for that very purpose.

I did find a penny today so added that to the coin jar. Other than that I didn't do anything concerning money at all.

Tomorrow I am going to sleep in late if I can manage it and then go over to JoAnn's fabrics. I think I may finally give in and buy a sewing machine. They have some for under $100 that would be a good starter machine and one I could eventually pass on to DD. I need to go and look at them again.

    Yay! Finally, the clouds part and a little bit of sun can get through.

    Funny about the penny. I saw a few on the ground lately, and thought "Nah. I'll leave it for someone who needs more luck today than I do."

    Great news.Glad things are looking up for both you and your mom.

    Do you get the JoAnn Fabrics coupons? You might check to see if one would help you before you buy the machine.

    I do get them. I went and priced the machines, but did not end up buying one yet.
