SENSATIONAL Sunday !!!!!!
What a wild emotional day yesterday !!!! Mom gave me the high sign that she is ready to go caregiver free !!! So I sent the email .. and as of Wednesday (If I got the 72 hour bracket) she will be caregiver free .. Wednesday we go to get her her cortizone shot in the knee, and her water/bp pills that her normal doctor had given her, are working, and she bought her chair .. life is slowly becoming normal again .. and Wednesday when I see Bill we will all talk about the fall button .. She can't wear the pendent that we got, and after she made mention the other day (before she knew it was a mutual effort between Bill and I) we need to talk about getting the wristband .. at least she will have a button to push if she does fall .. but that's the next hurdle .. I'm seeing an end to this chapter in our life again .. the light at the end of the tunnel .. :)
I took my "Mama book" over yesterday and we talked about some of the financial things, I had some questions .. There was a repeating charge on her credit card that I questioned, and when I looked back in the files, it was going since January 2019 .. (I didn't look any further back) .. I called the number; and it was a VIP program from something that she ordered .. when .. ?? who knows. I'm thinking she heard "free shipping and money back from your purchases" and said "ok" ... and it started .. I called, and told them I wanted to cancel that membership, because she hasn't ordered anything from them in at least a year .. and 15$ a month .. wasn't worth it .. so that's cleared up ..the date just fell in coordination with something she really did get ?? until I found that there was another charge on the same date in May .. .. trying to teach her to watch what she says when they ask questions .. She signed up for the "music" program on Alexa as well . that I caught and cancelled .. when she can listen to music, just with commercials .. that's all .. so I'll just have to keep on top of that .. :) It's a shame that all she has to do is say "ok" and they pop the info onto the credit card .. Just to be safe with Alexa, I have removed her credit card information from her Amazon account .. lol lol .. I can enter it again, when we place another order IF we place another order ..
She kept saying "she couldn't figure out how I set it up so easily .. " and I told her it's what I've done for 40 some years .. and at work there was 10 plus pages of statement .. 1 page should be easy enough to work with .. lol lol .. While I'm still not 100% confident in the numbers .. I at least felt better having SOME number .. lol ..
So .. I was actually thinking about "when" I would color this immense amount of grey out of my hair .. and I may just do it this next week .. That way I will be degreyed for our trip, and start to fuss about ME .. Happy hubby has been doing so well, about being patient with my running around .. I'm blessed .. :)
I'm still sore from my planting on Friday, but my plants are doing well .. I have been watering them around noonish, and that covers them for the day .. plus my girdles are helping them stay alittle warmer from the 39 degree temps from last night ..
Today I'm going over to mom's .. and she's going to take her bath .. I told her I saw how she did it last time .. this time she is going to do it herself .. I will be there if she needs help with anything .. but she is going to do it all .. Yes .. my belly is tied in knots, but she does take her time, and she does think things through .. so I have to be able to trust in her abilities .. She IS doing wonderfully ..
I'm looking forward to Tuesday .. I told her that I wouldn't be over .. Hubby and I are planning a good ol'fashioned road trip up north .. and I am looking soooo forward to it .. !!!! There are new rules at the casino, but I'm willing to abide by them .. even if it's just enough to stretch my legs and get our 'olfarts points and free money .. and come back home .. I'm looking forward to just spending time with hubby !!!! and a nice ride to boot !!! :)
I got home yesterday and played puzzle .. my energies (even though feeling great) were so scattered, I couldn't find something to do .. I was antsy watching TV, I was antsy in my playroom, I was just plain flat out antsy .. so puzzle playing at least I could settled down . I'm seeing the light .. I hope it doesn't burn out .. lol lol lol ..
Wishing everyone a wonderful day !!! Be safe, be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!!!!
