93 redo

It was mom's 93rd birthday today! She wanted first to go shopping and buy some clothes, or rather, wearables. She needed nightshirts/nightgowns, since her pjs have gotten too big on her, though she hasn't really lost weight. I guess the elastic is stretched out. So we got her pants and a shirt and two lightweight nightshirts, one with matching socks for when it gets cold. And a winter nightgown.
Then we headed up to Fullerton to a restaurant we discovered last year that had wonderful fillet mignon (her favorite) and dim sum. There was something for everyone there, and it was very reasonable and wonderful quality. However, when we got there, after an hour and a half of driving (since I don't drive on freeways), it was no longer there. It had become a bar, and we weren't in that. So I called Richard and Jeremy and got back in the car and headed for Tustin, where we went back to the Korean bbq. It was very good, but we were nearly delerious by the time we got there, and we really kept everyone waiting. By that time, Jeremy had to go to work, so he couldn't come, and Richard had gone home, waiting for me to call him. R and M waited for an hour for us to arrive. I guess they just missed Richard and Jeremy.
Once we got there, everyone had a good time. Afterwards we went to a Chinese bakery, where we bought a beautiful strawberry shortcake with real whipped cream (mom's favorite) and sang happy birthday to her. She smiled for that for sure!
