    Wednesday morning I am driving my mom out to Buffalo, NY. We are going to celebrate the fact that my grandma is turning 100 in December (it will be a surprise birthday party).

    I'm glad to be going but nervous about the drive and spending so much time with my mom. I will be the only driver so that worries me because I know I tend to get very tired driving. I'm nervous about spending so much time with mom because she is so sensitive and so critical. If I don't follow her advice on things she gets very upset. She is also in the early stages of dementia so that should be interesting as well. At least once I get there she will also have others to talk with. on the other hand, I'm also looking forward to spending some time with her (just hoping we can avoid any major blow ups).

    Wish me luck:)

    I picked up Mom early this morning. She wasn't ready and it took about another hour to get her ready. We made it back to Madison so tomorrow we are off!
