We have moved.

Today, Dolly was transferred to Sherrill House. She will be in their 'Return to Home' program. We are all so happy that she 'got in' so to speak. I saw renewed motivation in her, an actual glimmer in her eyes. It was nice to see.

I spent the whole day with Dolly, with some brief times away to get some other things done. At one point she was fixated on me getting her a new shirt for tomorrow, so she sent me to Boomerangs. I found 2 shirts there that I thought she would like, and she did. She also wanted everyone to know what I spent on them....ready?...$3. I think one shirt was $1 and the other was $2. She loves that place, and I think she feels comfortable to be so close to it now. She can consider it her closet if it motivates her, that's fine with me!

I stopped by her house on my way home tonight, got her mail, and watered her plants...all 50 or so of them. While I was there, I noticed this 'art' installation in her bedroom.

The first few times I noticed this work of art, I had been focused on other tasks I had to do in her home. I remembered seeing it, but never had quite a reaction to it as I did tonight. I saw my mother in this placement of gloves, mask, scarves and pin on a workout machine. She is truly an imaginative artist.
