Finally Friday !!! Day off today .. Bill will be with mom all afternoon .. so playtime around here

Friday, May 29, 2020

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!

You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

Our virtual kitchen is Covid-19 free ...:)

Finally Friday !!! *shhhhhhh I think I have a whole day off*

Bill is taking mom out for a shopping trip for a new chair .. and he did everything to make sure that I didn't have to come and let the 4:00 caregiver in .. I told him to text me around 3 if he sees a challenge getting back.. but I thik that they should be back before then .. they are only going to 1 store .. it's the store with her "rebate certificate" at ..

Mom was doing awesome yesterday .. the waterpill is making success in the first day .. and she was handling it well ... yesterday was a day of hard conversations ... and my belly is showing it this morning ..

I told mom that the button wasn't 100% Billy .. He had been doing research, and I knew it ... this whole thing hasn't just scared him, but has scared me as well .. Emergency surgery, and I couldn't be there to watch process scared the living bejeezers out of me .. so I TOLD him to order it .. so it's not all Bill .. and she felt bad for saying something .. and I told her no ... that isn't the reason I said something .. I just didnt want her to build up sour feelings for Bill .. when it was both of us .. She's going to be sorry that the 2 of us have reunited .. lol lol lol ..

I also told her that we will need another transfer the week of mid June .. and she was shocked .. I tried to explain to her, that the service we got was the least expensive, and easiest to work with for changing schedules .. the other ones that I had looked at were 40-50$ / hour flat rate .. That floored her .. and she asked that I send in notice to cut back her hours a couple more hours during the day starting next week .. With that I reworked my budget plan, and it gave us an extra week .. I told her I needed HER to tell me as she was able to work on her own .. Yesterday was a perfect day (compared to the past few days) and I could not be a caregiver and daughter .. she would hate me by the end .. (and I try to have my own life as well (didn't say that part)) So -- she took a deep breath and told me to cancel a few more hours .. (and I believe that she can handle it ... it may be because of the money; but maybe this will be the extra oomph she needs to get over her "fears" .. ) She stated that right now her only fear left, is walking outside .. she's not steady on the curves and turns of the concrete ..

It was hard conversations .. but it was something that needed to be talked about .. and I'm glad that it was out .. The only thing that is getting me upset is that since she thought that Bill was the culprit of the button thing, she said she wouldn't have said anything if she knew that I was in agreement with it .. so she won't talk to Bill about that .. because it would hurt his feelings, and I wish she would .. because that leaves ME to convince him on the wristband (which is just a button, but isn't "fall guard" setting ... she would have to manually push the button) ..

So -- it was a good day yesterday but a day of heavy conversations .. and we left in our mutual corners .. lol lol lol .. and today will be with Bill .. I have the day off ..

Today is going to consist of planting a few of my tomato plants .. The heat has broke, and I can get outside without turning into a sweat puddle ..Looking forward to opening up my house a bit, to get some fresh air in here ..

I cooked up some hummer mix last night, so I will take that out today and put it out for them ..

I started up the ingredients for an egg bake that I want to make .. and found a recipe .. so I will probably make that up this morning .. and I want to play in my playroom .. I got the start of 4 of my 7 cards (for July and August) and have some ideas .. hmmmmmmm I made a list to the end of the year, and after August .. I don't have many others to do, so may just keep on going .. and finish up the year.. lol lol lol .. I have 4 girl birthday's, 2 boy birthdays, and 1 anniversary just for July and August .. lol... (I think December must have be a cold month .. *blush* )

I did giggle at myself yesterday .. I walked into my playroom, and laughed to myself.. I had done a scribble page on Wednesday, when I came home with new drawing playtoys.. and I had a black blob on my page. I walked in yesterday and saw an eyeball looking back at me.. lol lol lol .

I'm getting so good even my scribbles turn out to be something ... lol ..

So -- going to enjoy my day today ... beautiful weather, some down time, chance to do a little catchup, play in the kitchen, and get a chance to breathe .

Wishing you a wonderful Friday .... be safe, be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!!!

Just got off the phone with mom, and she had a good night, and is feeling good today; and I got mushy, and she was my mom and made me feel better !! *YAY*

    Good luck to your Mom finding a new chair. Hope she has a successful outing.

    OHhhhhhh yes, a united front is something to be feared!

    I think you did a great job of tackling the hard stuff w/your Mom yesterday. As for the button, I think (I HOPE) Bill will be in agreement w/the wristband. That would provide a measure of safety. And you’re right . . . it is IMPOSSIBLE to be daughter and caregiver @ the same time. Doesn’t work. I tried. LOL But You are doing what you need to do so you can be daughter to your Mom. That is the role she needs from you. Spoken from experience.

    LOL! Yup . . . December is time to cozy up. LOL

    Enjoy your play day! I know how tough it can be to have our roles switch where we are parenting those who parented us! Those tough conversations have to be had but are never easy!
