Teaser Photo and Explanation for Absence

We returned from Rome on 15 January, Mum went into the hospital on 14 January. Yesterday was the first day I didn’t visit her or stay with her (she got out of the hosp on 26 Jan and I stayed with her until Tuesday night). Tuesday night I slept in my bed and last evening I sat on my butt in my house and had leftover pizza (from the freezer) and watched TV. I was in bed just after 9 and turned the light off at 10:30 (Parenthood is recorded so I’ll watch the rest today). It was glorious.

Things are slowly returning to normal – she has so many services available where she lives – yesterday a health aide came to help her bathe, then PT, then OT (she didn’t really like this one) and then the nurse. With that many people coming in and out, I certainly do not need to be there. I may go see her tonight, but she made sounds this morning like I may not need to do so… We’ll see.

So, this is why there has been nothing about the trip to Rome or pictures. My two cameras and cell phone are full of “food porn,” and the amazingness that is Rome. I booked us a cooking lesson (stories and photos to follow) with Chef Fabio! Looks nothing like the romance novel guy but actually looks like James Taylor – he was darned cute in my book, male-pattern baldness and everything.

I will go thru photos and share stories… but for today – I’m picking a few random photos to share. Thanks for continuing to check in, hopefully I’m back for a bit.

Like I said… “food porn.” This is my first gelato – OMG.

Pistachio and chocolate.

The cup is decorated with landmarks of Rome. Cute!
