The last Concord Place newsletter asked that we make sure that our resident has hat, gloves and boots in case it becomes necessary to leave the building. I knew that Mom's winter coat was there, and I also knew that she didn't have any of the other things with her. So we went to Meijer to get those items and to do some grocery shopping. I found just the right hat and gloves, but they didn't have boots the right size for Mother. I got my big feet from her.
Somewhere around the cottage cheese section, I got very tired of walking (limping) around, and headed for the front. I should have known that would happen - Meijer is just too big for me at the moment. I always get over-tired there, even with a cart to lean on. Dick checked out while I sat on a bench with two really old gentlemen.
We visited Mother - she likes the hat and gloves very much. We had a nice visit, but a short one because I wanted to go home.
