Time to buy you a history book
"The restaurant was beautiful! Ya know it was built in the 1770s, and it still has that decor. You know, that glamorous, Gatsby-era stuff."
She either needs to rethink her definition of that word or my mom turned into a cat
"Shana madelah [sic] is Yiddish for my beautiful daughter
Nana’s heart burst with pride. You revived her from the dead"
what my mother thinks is an appropriate way to say “congratulations on your new job”

"Buttons making small poops. The doctor is happy. Meds will be modified :)"
"Yeah!! 2 firm poops! but they had blood in them. Doctor gone until Monday."
"I was on the computer and I heard this yowling behind me and it was Buttons and she was trying to make but she couldn’t go and she was crying, poor thing. Can I tell you - this cat was in SO MUCH pain, she let me wipe her ass for twenty minutes! And I didn’t even have to brush her! She just sat there and I had a bucket of warm water and your blanket cause I figured it’d be soft, and she just let me wipe her without making a fuss. Of course everything smelled like cat’s ass after that but… what can ya do…"
empty nest syndrome is hitting her hard
nana called me up tonight because she remembered a song
she sang it to me four times
i got the last one on video
and, as hilarious as it is when my jewish ass new york family sings, this woman is 96 years old, survived cancer three times, and is going blind right now.
she was singing this song to herself all day, thinking about being a single mom and raising her two kids - because it was the only thing she ever did. she got divorced when no one else did, she never had a career, and all she had she gave to them. now she has four grandchildren and six great grandchildren and shes 96 years old.
96 fucking years old and this woman is still kicking. chilling out in her nursing home, humming songs to herself about being a mom.
so much love and respect.
my mom sings happy birthday to my roommate
