Day 334 And chaos has resumed.
Wednesday, July 15, 2015      2 comments

I really felt like we were settling into a fairly reasonable situation.....and then my niece called mom and dad last evening and said she had a surprise and would be here early afternoon today. So of course I'm summoned to town to be there for ... Read more
Day 333 Yup seems life has settled into a confused mess but
Wednesday, July 15, 2015      2 comments

But at least it has settled into something I can deal with. After I said Happy Birthday to my 43 year old birthday present this morning. We've been making that same joke for years I took my mom shopping and she took me out to lunch. ... Read more
Day 332 Can too much iced tea hurt you?
Tuesday, July 14, 2015      4 comments

In the past 3 days I've gone thru 2 6-packs of Snapple Iced tea. One was the Top-a-rock and the other was half tea and half lemonade. Both are very good and only 10 calories. Have to be better than diet pepsi. Right? Today was a full da... Read more
Day 331 Dog won't even go out....96 today.
Sunday, July 12, 2015      2 comments

The heat index earlier was 105 so even the won't go out if you open the door. But when he does it feels like your walking in the refrigerator when you come back in. I have my air set at 76 so it's not that cool in here. Too hot to eat or... Read more

With that weird gut feeling last night i had to check on mom and dad today. Also I wanted to lok at her arm. It is not infected and they are both fine. Also the arm looked a lot better than it had on Thurs. I did not take her to the walk in ... Read more

Friday, July 10, 2015      1 comments

The day itself wasn't bad even with 5 phone calls from the pushy brother. He was working on VA benefits for dad. Of course I was pretty sure they had too many assets to qualify right now. But I gave him that project because he's so much bette... Read more

Thursday, July 09, 2015      5 comments

I knew mom and dads internet was acting up yesterday. So I called the company and they reset on their end. So this morning I went in to make sure everything was working. The Ipad worked as did mom's computer but the caption phone wouldn't wor... Read more
Day 327 Not easy but we got thru it.
Wednesday, July 08, 2015      1 comments

The phone call with the 12 year old great grand child was not easy. When we got gramma to sit down and talk to the phone she kept asking who she was talking to. We'd tell her and then she'd say oh really. I'm not sure it was a very good exper... Read more

Tuesday, July 07, 2015      3 comments

Just a quick trip into town this morning for exercise class. Stopped and there were no problems that needed solving or complaints. So I came home to crochet and sew the rest of the day away. But you will like my helper. ... Read more
Day 325 We are both fine.
Monday, July 06, 2015      2 comments

It was a long long night. We had thunder, lightening, wind and rain. Then today for my long drive we had a terrible haze. But lunch was very nice. Some of us hadn't seen each other in almost a year. We do talk a little but not as much... Read more
Day 324 Another good one ..... and then there is tomorrow?
Sunday, July 05, 2015      5 comments

I would be perfectly happy just curling up here and crocheting and quilting. But tomorrow is what we call our "cousin lunch". My dad had 2 sisters and a brother. One sister is living close enough to visit as are all 4 of her children and alth... Read more

This is the kind of day I need more of. No checking to see if they are all right. Just me my animals and my projects. Here are the squares ready for the next step in the crochet along.... ... Read more
Day 322 Alone time YEA
Friday, July 03, 2015      2 comments

I totally took alone time today. I did not even take a phone call from one of my brothers. If the facility mom and dad are at would have called I probably would have answered. But the boys usually just ask how mom and dad are doing. They can... Read more
Day 321 I can't find my hole to climb into.
Thursday, July 02, 2015      4 comments

Thank you all for the kind encouraging words and hugs. I need them. Last night and most of today even a cat asking for a pet feels like more than I can handle. I do go to yoga this morning and waited in town for my nephew to come for lu... Read more

I was up early this morning to make sure I got to town in order to take my mom to get her hair cut at the facility......I got there and she was still in her pj's, had not had breakfast and didn't believe my dad when he told her to get up because... Read more
