Chinese Food

My son took me to a Chinese Buffet last night while my sister Mommy sit. It was great. I ate to much. But the pain and suffering that came later was worth it.
Mom's nurse and aid have already been here this morning so the rest of the day will be routine. Lunch , changing, nap, changing , supper and bedtime. Not much but seems to take up most of the day. If we could leave the diaper changes out it would not be a bad day. Who would of thought mom changed my diapers and now I am changing hers. I bet mine where much sweeter. LOL!!!
