Mom is sweet as she can be, but she can have her scattered moments that make you wonder. I don’t know how I would act, if I woke up one day and mom was totally organized. She can be everything from cute as a button to drive you insane confused.
Tonight her difficulty was lemon jello. She made three different trips to the store to get everything she needed to make a dessert for a church party tomorrow. When she arrived home, she realized she had pineapple jello, not lemon. She headed back to the store to make the switch and she couldn’t find it. The boxes were a mess and mom was tired, so she returned home to ask if we would swap it out for her. In all of the hoopla, mom came in and laid her Jello down and lost it! She had the kitchen in a mess to prepare this dessert and the jello was now somewhere in her mess.
We, of course, said yes. Mom went to retrieve her jello to swap out when she discovered it was misplaced. She was so frustrated by this time that Barry told her not to worry, we’d take care of it.
We get home with her lemon jello, and she states, “sugar-free”? I just walked away………..
