A Little Off

I have been nervous all day today. My mom is going in today for her 7th hip surgery since 2003. I will be waiting up here very late tonight ( 9 hour time difference) for the call with my dad on the end of the line telling me she is okay. I am praying for no complications and a quick recovery. I was thinking about her this morning when I was taking Elizabeth to school, and I was feeling "a little off" today because my thoughts are of my mom in California...and my head doesn't seem to be here. Then, I saw something that made my head cock to one side. I saw a Disney sign which was advertising Disney decorations.....I don't know....but I don't think I would ever think there were Disney decorations in that store....
Later on, when I was coming home, I saw a car which was being towed by a truck. Before you ask me if I should just call it a "tow truck", you need to see the picture below. It is a truck that is towing something...but it is definitely not my idea of a traditional tow truck...
I started thinking, there are things here like what I am used to having in the U.S., but they are "a little off" ...they just aren't what you would, what better place than Nigeria to have a day when you feel "a little off"? I think Nigeria may be what the person who coined that phrase was thinking of when they came up with it.:)
Mom, if you get to read this, please know I am thinking of you, and I love you more than you'll ever know! I know you'll get through this!!!:) I may not actually be there...but my heart has been with you all day!:)
