He likes it!!!
My son likes his grill and he said he thought it was something to work on a car with. When he got closer he saw one of the wheels and than thought it might be a grill. The last few Birthdays I did get him tools and ramps for his car. He works on it all the time and I hated him using my dads old tools and jacks so I have been slowly buy him new stuff. But this time I really surprised him. Car Jacks scare me to death . That is why I got him the ramps you just drive the car onto . They look a lot safer.
So far we have had hot dogs and hamburgers . Today we are having grilled chicken breast. What a nice present for him and me. LOL!
Mom's new Doctor came to visit yesterday. And she has a new Social Worker who also came yesterday. They seem nice. I liked the old ones but I will like these too. Mom does not care either way . I do get tired of them asking me the same question over and over. When anyone new comes around they ask me if mom is sleeping , And do I get enough rest, Do I get out, Do I have help with mom, How long have I been caring for mom and how long has she had Alzheimer's. OK, why don't they write this stuff down I am sick of it.
On another note. It is HOT!!! I had to turn the air on. And Thank Goodness it worked. Today it is going to be in the 90's. And I thought time for the air. Last year a repair man told me the AC was toast and I needed a new one . I told him we had to wait. And when he left I turned it on and it has worked every since. Don't know what he did to it but it works. For now anyway. Time to get mom up. Have a great weekend.
