My mother may have broken my heart tonight. I didn't know she had gone to Birmingham to be with Granny, and still don't know what this means, if she's gotten worse or what. She can't be that bad as Mom brought home pimento cheese, for which I still need the recipe. However, she's already given away a lot of her stuff, including jewelry and other items. A gorgeous ruby ring and pearl necklace and earrings as well as diamond earrings and her wedding set. Seeing that last set was surreal. Also, Mom gave me money to take half of from a present they were given at their sixtieth anniversary party, it's about $160, but I may feel horrible spending it. It's weird to be given this stuff while she's still alive, but without seeing her. I'm hoping I'll get a chance to say goodbye, but I wouldn't put it past her to not want us there. Add all this to the fact that my mother forgot to tell me about this trip and tonight's revelations hit me like a ton of bricks. While the trip down memory lane was fun, many bad fashion choices on my mom's part, it's not really wanted right now. I need an update first.
