Spent another day doing for mom yesterday,, filled out more paperwork,, hauled more things to her room,, straightened her room, hung everything up, arranged for beauty shop for her,, she already performed: snatched a tv remote out of another resident's hand because she wanted to watch something other than what everybody else was watching,, this is her first week there..
we went to day to get a drawered storage unit for her bathroom, more clothes to mark and take to her,, maybe next week, when I feel like it,,
getting tax papers in order for preparer,, will have to make an appointment for moms too..
it took us over an hour to find a teeny little bottle of nail polish in mom's house,, it will take us months to clear out all the junk in her drawers,,
every closet and drawer is packed with old cards, threadbare linens, cheap knick knacks,, I think within two more years and she would have run out of those spaces and started piling that junk out of the spaces.. a "hidden hoarder" if you will,,

I think she has a minimum of twenty five watches,, none of them work except the cool Mickey Mouse one I bought for her in Disney world in 2007 that she never wore,,,
you want eyeglass cases, we GOT eyeglass cases,, every drawer had a few in it..

    It's sounds like your mum is still keeping you busy! At least when it's done, it's done. Those draws won't magically fill up again! emoticon

    Knows not to ask if Moms thanked you for doing the things you do.

I vote get on www.freecycle.com. Someone out there may need eye glass cases.

    It'so right LINDA, I hope there is someone there who can talk to her about her behaviour or does she just not realise whats she is doing to hurt others.

    Sorry about the loss of income it really bites, our family in vegas was hit very hard and the stress ofosing their first home haas been gruelling for them. It is hard to see what is happening in our country and rationalising it with sending so much aid abroad. Sometimes I long for some poor smart person could be elected and see it the way the vast majority of us are living. Hand to mouth.
Try to enjoy the time off.

HUGS if that helps Pat in Maine emoticonDear LINDA.

So glad I hav eoptions to do what I want to do,, reading about southeast clashes,, those poor, powerless people,,, we are truly blessed with this freedom, regardless of the crooks,, hopefully it will get better in a couple years with a new president,,,

    BOY your page is hard to comment on. Kept logging in but no place to write.

Sorry for more snow, it gets here tomorrow.
I hope you can find some thing to do that you really enjoy and then hope you are able to get it done. HUGS, think happy thoughts today. I understand its just a suggestion.

My mother used to say when i said I am not happy.
" HAPPINESS is just a state of mind".
I think I will just make myself a poster of that when I get a minute and I will remember my mam and see if it helps.

I am so glad i found you today, being on your page just SPARKED me i hope it does it for you too, HUGS LINDA this too shall pass. Pat in Maine.

    A little bit wandered down south here, just a "dusting" so to speak.
Sun keeps having momentary breakthroughs and I try to soak up each one of them. Is rough being solar-powered!
Hang tough. Maybe you will catch a break and get some rest and relaxation this weekend! (I see that snicker!)
