New Arrival to the Watson Hotel!

Full House Again!
It seems the Watson Hotel is at full capacity again! Our newest arrival Grandma Bagley came in late December. Her room is full of things to remind her of family, and she has two beds. Funny enough she
thinks someone needs to be sleeping in it. However there are more beds than there are people in the house.We have explained to her that we all have beds upstairs. But we have figured out that having the extra bed in her room comes in handy for when we have "accidents". But she stays in her room most of the time, sleeping. Which is normal for her.

Each day is different as we all get use to having her here.From breakfast to dinner each interaction is a delight. Its wonderful having Grandma here as we all get to know her as the amazing woman she is.
Each days routines vary depending on how Grandma feels. Basically eating sleeping and going to the bathroom are all that she does. But during the few times we actually get to sit and talk with her it brings laughter and enjoyment to us all. With her sight not being the best, she at times shes stuff that is not really there and we explain to her that the rug on the floor is not a needle and thread and that the grout on the floor makes the floor look dirty but its not really dirty :) Nevertheless she makes each day special and fun.

OH! We have a dog named Kitty, ok we dont really have a dog, its a big ceramic dog that sits outside her bedroom, and she asked Joe and I could we move it because it scares her, so we are relocating Kitty to another room! :)

Grandma always ask if there are any more people in the house, and next to being at Ann's house it is very boring! But we explain that it is only Joe, me, Kimmy and her.
But overall Grandma is doing great here in foggy Manteca California! We will post more weekly. The holidays took us for a whirl and getting used to having grandma here has been a big task. So thanks for being patient as we get more posted!

It's such a rare opportunity to spend that much time with your family after everyone has gotten older. I know it's trying at times, but what a delight!
