At church today, I heard my friends talking about how they were going to go visit his mom. I often go with them and really enjoy it. Even though his mom does not remember me due to Alzheimer’s, she is still a really nice person. Plus, I always enjoy hanging out with my friends. It is a half hour drive both ways and then of course, there is the actual visit. It is a very pleasant way to spend a lonely weekend afternoon.
After I heard them say what their plans were, I really wanted to go. I know that I have plenty to keep me busy today as well as all that I had yesterday that prevents me from feeling lonely. But still, sometimes it is just nice to get out of the apartment and away from the commitments of chores and work.
