B. called to ask if I could work for him as an independent nursing aide on Thursday, as the home health agency has still not found people and the retirement community could only give B. and R. a week. I said, "Thursday-Friday," and then Mom said that the Friday was the Reading Phillies game.
In the afternoon, A.J.'s sister B. took us to the Philadelphia Premium Outlets. We had a lot of fun in the Crabtree & Evelyn store, and B. found purses she liked for 70% off at Vera Bradley. It was really nice to see them and Penny and Nellie the goldendoodles again. I felt like I was catching up on my life.
I called B. back in the evening and said that the Friday would have to be 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and he readily agreed. He asked about the weekend, and I said I didn't know of any plans we had. B. told me that he'd gotten R. to try to do laundry for the first time in his life. (lol) R. had not been able to distinguish washing machine from dryer, and put the dirty clothes in the dryer at first. He was corrected by a man passing by, fortunately. I told B. that R. was a bit of a space cadet. After nearly 39 years together, B. still seems to wonder what the heck is going through R.'s head sometimes. I know that after a few days, I was wondering what Ronnie's thought processes were at times. When Mom heard about it, she said that it was never too late to learn how to do laundry. (lol)
