...and all is well...at least I'm feeling content since my son George, is coming this afternoon to celebrate Christmas Eve with me tomorrow. I made a tomato free lasagna for our dinner tonight. As with all of my cooking experiments, we'll know how well this went once we have a taste. All the spices and ingredients usually go together well, but we shall see if son George, will find a second helping worthwhile! LOL! I may be freezing it to eat later in the week. Tomorrow's menu is baked ham steak seasoned with cloves, baked sweet potato/yam casserole with browned marshmallow topping (son loves this one), might make apple salad replacing nuts (since I don't any) with crunchy chow mien noodles...again, this will be an experiment and we'll see how it goes tomorrow.
Chewy Buddy, aka, Chewy always rejoices when son George comes for a visit and when he stays overnight Chewy sulks when he leaves to return to his own apartment. This mother is so very grateful that my special son is so capable (with assistance) that he can live in his own place, have his own friends, go to two different cleaning jobs, and have a life! Rumors of funding cuts concern me as my son needs the level of assistance that he has. He's physically capable of a fair bit even with his palsied hands, but it's his mental incapacity which causes the need for helpers to come in to assist him. He doesn't have the ability to cook for himself, but he can heat something up in the microwave. Ergo part of the need for help. His visual challenge comes in the form of perception difficulty. He simply cannot discern what is in front of his face. Also, his damaged brain won't let him retrieve information he has learned. He thumps his forehead with the palm of his hand and says, "It's in there, Mom, but I can't get it out!" It's so frustrating for him.
