Why was I distracted, you may ask?
Because I was trying to get in touch with her all evening and could not!
I knew she was working all day so I waited until I was driving home to give her a call. I got the voicemail. No big deal; left a birthday message and said call me back, etc.
I went right from work to get my hair cut and ended up there forever. I checked my cell on the way out and still no call from Mamacita.
I got home around 8 and called again. Still, the voicemail. Another message.
This is when I release my OCD and start calling every five minutes. Then I thought, maybe there has been an accident on their road – there often is, as it is a busy road with too many trucks and too many curves and too many speeders, and for some reason, most accidents cause their phones to go out.
So I called her cell. It didn’t even ring, just went to the voicemail which she does not have setup. I think I tried this three times in between calling the home phone.
Finally, I got online and emailed her, just about the same time I posted last night.
So I call Dad’s cell. He answers and says she’s fine, their phone is fine, she’s just been on it all that time.
My, what a popular Mama I have!
She finally called me around 10 and I finally got to wish her a happy birthday.

I'm so glad that I remembered to wish my mother a happy birthday last September the 22nd because she died a few weeks later on October 4th. As the anniversary draws nearer, I find myself obsessing about her.
I don't blame you one bit for being so worried about her. Love her bunches while you can.
I deleted my blog after having a nightmare that my husband found out about it. I think I'll have to start another one that's less personal to keep myself from blogging on other peoples comments… LOL
I'm trying! When I hear about people losing their moms suddenly like you did, it breaks my heart. I'll be thinking of you on the 4th. And let me know when you start up your new blog!! I miss you.
Glad you got in touch with her!
And thank you so much for stopping by my blog!
