Holy mackerel batman ..

Its 4pm and Im finally sitting just to sit ... If I dont sleep tonight theres something drastically wrong ..

Got my laundry done and bedding changed out, made hubby his chipdip, had a very pregnant visitor and her friend (2 deer in the back 40 .. will post pictures tomorrow), which left me play with my camera, made the pork tenderloin that we had on sammiches for lunch, I have one more load of laundry to do, and have the windows in the bedroom open to air out the mattress and the room .. nice cross breeze ...got mom's checking account set up with a balance so I have a starting point, cut open my Dt Dew cans for future die cutting, and finally played a bit with my drawing Im working on, and played a round of wii golf with happy hubby ...

Now Im sitting with my water with orange slices and watching Addam 12 ...Hubby went to pick up some chips, and applesauce (with my pork) and some more buns and bread ...sonIm sitting quiet .. i feel megaly awesome from my day ...

Hubby stopped to drop off moms groceries and played with her Alexa ... made mom laugh. He said she's doing well today ...and in a happy mood ..

Hope your day went as well ..mine has been mega heaven !!!!

Thursday: It was just a lovely sunny day yesterday and I am so grateful that things started to dry out a little. PHEW.

I feel so sorry for those in MI impacted by the dam breaks . . . how devastating.

Hugs, and hereís to a thankful Thursday, or as I like to call it, Friday EVE!

Sally: Good for you getting fresh air and sunshine. You need that.

I think youíre right about the night time hours. Better safe than sorry.

You need a catch-up day. Glad youíre taking it.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday was a good day, I got fresh air, and sunshine, and an outside walk, and camera play time .. There were a few burps in the day, but oh well ..

Today is going to be a domestic day .. I have a few more days, before I have to be diligent at going over to mom's .. She starts shorter hours .. We're starting her from 11am to 4pm .. I will go over there on Monday to be there while SHE gets her lunch together, and eats it .. and if she wants to take a bath, I will be there .. because Tuesday is her doctors appointment .. but she's doing everything herself .. however, this seems to be the quietest time .. I'm not ready to start blocking out overnight times yet .. I just know that I'm woosie when I get up in the middle of the night .. so we're starting ..

I am taking today to be a domestic day .. I think I reached my end yesterday, and just need a day to regroup .. and then I told her that I wouldn't be over this weekend, because I was hoping to start to get my tomatoes planted .. but they are threatening rain .. so we'll see ..

Today is going to consist of making hubby a batch of chip dip, because he's been such a good boy through all this, and make up a pork tenderloin that hubby pulled out and has been defrosting the last couple of days .. and catch up on my laundry .. and some playtime .. and just have a day to myself .. YES this is a day to myself !!!! Hubby is probably going to go do mom's grocery shopping, so he will stop over there ... so we still have watch .. :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful day ... be safe, be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!!

Good afternoon,

Went to the park and got fresh air and fluffbum pictures... Felt good, and headed over to mom's .. I walk in and BAM!! Didn't have anything to do with Helen, but some problems she's having ... Kinda blew the wind out of my sails... but while I was there she wanted to take her walk down the hallway and back, and she did really good.. Kathleen followed her with the chair and I walked next to her...

I exited stage left after that...

I told her that I may not be over over the weekend.. (she starts 5 free hours on Monday (but I will be there around lunch) 11-4 unhelper hours) If yhe weather behaves I want to try planting my 'mater plants, cuz they are getting big.

And when I got home, I decided that I was going to take tomorrow off.... theres some stuff around here I want to do and catch up with.. So I called and told her I wouldnt be over tomorrow ... think Im just tired...

So tomorrow is going to be a catchup day...

Wednesday: Did a bit of grocery shopping yesterday (milk, bread, produce) and was pleased that it went smoothly. There were pretty well stocked shelves (except for disinfectant wipes, exam gloves and masks. . . no surprise there, for sure). Then it Ďs the process of disinfecting and putting away.

Otherwise, it finally stopped raining around noon. Thank goodness. NOW we need lots of sunshine to dry things up.

HUGS and wonderful Wednesday.

UH oh on mentioning the carer your Mom isnít enthralled with. Well, I wouldnít be either! Hope Ellie can get a different carer for her hours. Yes, truth is youíre on the home stretch, but have to get through it, right!?! Good luck.

Take that Sally time. You need it.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

I got there and mom was in a super mood .. she made it through OT and PT .. and was still in a good mood .. lol lol ..

I picked up an Alexa Echo Dot for her .. and she was thrilled .. it was a belated birthday/mothers day gift .. and I had seen how easy it was to use at Ceil's .. I thought I would pick one up .. She had said she wanted one, but I've used the "helpers" on the phones, and they could get a bit difficult at times .. but Alexa was wonderful .. I set it up and we played with it .. She likes to hear about actors/actresses that she sees on movies, and she asks me, I look them up on Wikipedia, and read to her what it says .. well .. now she can find out for herself .. I showed her by saying "Alexa, tell me about Raymond Burr" .. and it read the wikipedia writeup .. Only thing I have to do is tell her that she doesn't have to do calasthenics in her chair to talk to Alexa .. From the craft room, I got her to start "Alexa, play some Benny Goodman" ... from the kitchen I stopped her from playing Benny Goodman .. lol lol .. but mom feels she has to talk direct to her .. so today we will work on that .. :)

But we had a wonderful time until I made the mistake that "Helen was working the overnight shift" .. I know why I don't really have a liking for her, and mom has been tolerating her .. but I mentioned her and mom went south IMMEDIATELY ... and said that she would be fine, and didn't want to complain, because she's already complained about 2 others .. So -- when I got home, I sent an email to Ellie, to see if we can get her off the schedule .. All I could say to mom was "we're on the home stretch" .. but then I looked at the future schedule, and she is on ALOT .. so hopefully Ellie can get her replaced ..

Today I'm hoping to take some Sally time, and stop at my park with my camera; for a bit of fresh air, and sunshine .. so with that being said .. wishing everyone a wonderful day .. be safe, be strong, be smart, and be happy !!!

Tuesday: 6.1 in of rain from Sundayís rain and more yesterday (but not even an inch I donít think.) It finally stopped raining around 5 pm yesterday, thankfully.

Soggy days. But hoping today will be a little drier.

I am going to the store for just 4 items today. Wish me luck.

Hereís to a terrific Tuesday.

HUGS

Sally: Hmmmm . . . . yes, Iíd find Helenís behavior a bit peculiar for sure. Sorry it disrupted your Momís sleep.

Wonderful that you got to talk w/Ciel and that sheíll check up on your Mom when youíre away.

Hugs and hope that your solín for your leg

Hope that your visit is short today so you get a break.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had a good day yesterday, but mom was tired .. her overnight caretaker was overcharged, and mom didn't sleep well .. When she got up for the restroom, Helen was giving her a bunch of suggestions on what she should do .. and mom woke up a couple of times; and saw Helen just sitting in the dark .. Mom offered that she could go into the other room, and read, or do something in her craft room, but she didn't want to .. so that made that mom couldn't sleep well .. too wierd .. but she's a nice lady, but a bit peculiar ..

Today I'm anticipating that she will be tired when I go over, cuz she has OT and PT back to back ..

Got to talk to Ceil yesterday, and I am getting more and more confident on my upcoming vacation .. because she said she would check in on mom .. :) YAY !!!!

So -- looking forward to another good day .. but probably a short visit today .. (will be good for me ..:) )

I have a possible link to my leg, and am learning, and am seeming to manage it ..:) YAY ME !! Wish me luck it continues .. :)

Have a wonderful day .. be safe be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday was another awesome day .. She is trying with everything she has to move forward .. I'm so proud of her .. I sent a note to the scheduler explaining that we would be starting to cut hours soon, and what the procedure would be besides the 72 hour notice .. I told mom that she has until Thursday to figure out what hours she wants someone there .. I don't know if I have a choice of hours of the shifts, but have an email into Ellie asking ..

I took an Aleve before bed last night, and while my leg was uncomfortable, it at least allowed me to sleep .. so I feel good about that !!!!

I am in a happy place right now, and we talked about my getaway .. so mom is fully aware that we have this planned .. I'll probably be heading over there today at around noonish ..

I read through the POA last night, and will give mom the paperwork to sign and return to change it to a real one .. it's pretty standard language .. I just have to have Bill there as well for the final signing, because he has to sign as well ... and the attorney is willing to help with the covid situation ..

With that being said .. I wish everyone a wonderful day .. be safe, be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!!

Zoom breakfast this morning! Nice!

HUGS and have a good Saturday.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

We are going to talk heavy today .. Even though I've seen drastic improvement, and she proved herself on Thursday night when she pretty much took care of herself *sigh* .. I need to get her to understand whether she is talking from emotion, or that she has the confidence to do it .. and if she does have the confidence, I will start working on setting up partial hours ..

The biggest challenge is to keep the caretaker out of our conversation .. Kim will put her 2 cents worth in ... I need to keep her quiet .. THAT will be the challenge .. It's not like we can go into another room .. her condo is pretty much one big room, with a couple side rooms ..

We have one more week, before her primary doctor's appointment, and there was only 1 challenge that she stated yesterday .. but yesterday was megaly talking emotional .. today I want to talk logical .. So -- we will try ..

I told Bill to order the "help I've fallen and I can't get up" button .. and we would talk about it deeper on her doctor appointment day .. I'm thinking of calling and telling them, that we don't need a caretaker from 11 to 5 that day .. because mom's appointment is at 11:30, and I'll be there until 5ish .. and the shifts are from 10:30 to 2:30, and 2:30 to 10 .. if the AM girl gets her ready .. why should we pay for 5 hours for them to sit and sleep .. I'll talk to her about that today ..

That's my story and I'm sticking with it .. :) My eyeball has swollen up and I look like Quasimoto today .. but it's my own fault for not listening to me .. lol lol ..

I'm good .. really .. I just need to get my Daddytude on .. and I'll have to shush the caregiver, because I want to talk to MOM !!!! Only MOM knows how she's feeling and her abilities .. I want to talk to HER .. The caregivers mean well, and I've taken to account .. but yesterday when we talked, and Dee was there .. she made comments about 4 hours stints .. in the AM, and in the later afternoon .. for food, and getting mom together for the day, and ready for sleep at night .. I need to know .. and know it all !!!

That's my stand and I'm sticking with it !!! Wish you a wonderful day .. Be safe, be strong, be smart and be healthy !!!

Mom was down today ... She's starting to get depressed from having the caretakers there 24/7 ... so I broke the news ...that I wanted to talk to the doctor about her incontinence and start cutting back on her hours ...and that picked her up a bit.

I texted Bill to tell him to order the "Ive fallen and I cant get up" button that we talked about... Mom proved that she can take care of herself, and I've been talking with people and some of the caretakers that I trust... and they told me the 4 hour stints... Im thinking of starting with from 12-5 block .. and work from the there...

So that perked her up a bit...but its getting harder and harder to keep upbeat when I go... but it didnt knock me back as far today....

Friday: Well, weíll see how things go now that the stay @ home has been overturned by the WI Supreme Court.

Rainy day yesterday and more expected today. But the temperature is supposed to go up. Hope so!

HUGS and enjoy Friday.

Sally: HOPE that things are better today. Happy birthday to your Mom! 93 . . . thatís remarkable.

Yeah, dang it, sometimes we have to listen to our own advice.

Thatís good that the Saturday schedule is covered. It IS so difficult to schedule, I wouldnít want that job.

HOPE todayís a better day.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday was a baaaaad mommy day; but the comments are telling me it should be a better day today !!!

It's mommy's 93rd birthday today .. and I like the 2 ladies that are on ... Dee is just a sweet thing, and she's on till 2:30, and Peggy is an older lady, and she's on from 2:30 to 10:30 .. and the overnight lady I'm very comfortable with ..

Yesterday was just over-eccentuated by having a headache as well .. Still have the headache .. think I caught a chill and my sinuses are acting up, but took an aleve, and my skin-ouchies are feeling better .. I should have known .. I was actually telling myself .. the last few days I've been driving with the vent, and directing it to blow straight at my face .. so this is only my fault, and I should have listened to me .. lol lol lol ..

So -- mom has PT today some time, and I plan on getting over there around noonish .. All the comments I've read from last night were positive, so it should be safer .. lol lol lol ..

Got notice from the scheduler that she had "Del's" Saturday hours covered, and will be working on Sunday .. I do have alot of respect for people in that field .. I had a friend that did that, and she used to tell me nightmare stories .. So -- I explained that I was very appreciative, and told her that if she didn't get someone for Sunday, to let me know .. I see that Del is 100 % removed from mom's list ..

Mom is almost ready to start working into part time .. but not quite yet .. Bill texted me that mom called and asked him to make an appointment for a cortizone shot .. and asked for THAT doctor's name and phone number .. I was half asleep, but got it for him .. :) so that one will be set up and after that .. I will be able to relax .. her hip surgery isn't causing problems, but her knee is .. and once she can manage the knee pain, I can start relaxing as far as her being by herself more.. she pretty much does everything on her own .. and all the girls do is flanks her (except Del) when she is up and moving ..

Anyway -- feel good this morning, (minus the skin ouchies from a chill because I was dumb during the nice weather, and drove with open windows, and cold vents .. lol )

One of these days, I need to get out with my camera and thinking the Schlitz audobon center .. haven't been there in years .. for fresh air, and Sally time ..

Wishing everyone a wonderful day .. Be safe, be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!

I agree with all the openings .. Im just easing my way into it... Im not ready for the fast life yet, as theres nothing thats solid about this whole Covid thing yet ...

Mom was wild when I got here .. she will not let the overnight girl in again, and so I "may" be here over the weekend to cover "Del's" hours ... but Ellie is going to try and reschedule ... Keeping fingers crossed ... and then they called and her regarding her chair... shes not getting a new chair, its obsolete, and Del pretty much slept whike mom got up multiple times, and she tried to sleep in bed which makes her leak .. She felt that Del got irritated .. she throws the dirty clothes on the floor, and thats where they stay unless mom specifically tells her to put them whereever ...
And there was something else but I forget now ... I want to go and find a corner and cry ..

Oh .. plus Im nursing a headache .. I think having the vents open on the car, blowing on my face has irritated my sinuses a bit ...

BLAH day ....but hangin in there ... lol

Thursday: Well, Miss Lilly did get her grooming and had a good time. The groomer has 2 dogs herself and they got to play together. Miss Lilly is Ĺ the girl she used to be. Cute, but then I might be a little biased.

I am just dumbfounded this morning. The WI Supreme Court overruled Gov. Tony Eversí stay @ home order. Weíll see what happens from here. I WILL NOT be going anywhere. I really think this is going to cause a major surge in covid. Have to wait and see. I think that those justices should spend just 1 hr. in an ER w/those Drs/nurses/healthcare professionals helping patients in their fight for life. **SIGH** Thatís all I can say w/o going on a tear.

Rainy day, so indoors for us. For sure.

Hope itís a good Thursday! Friday EVE!

HUGS

Sally: Good to hear you and DH had a wonderful day. Quiet is good!

Thatís wonderful that the POA draft is ready for you to peruse when it arrives. Good luck with the arrangements for the signatures.

I hope your Mom is having a decent day even though she didnít have a good night.
That will be good to get some questions answered when she sees the PCP on the 26th.

HUGS and hang in there.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Michelle .. it would be wonderful if your daughter could bring the little ones' to you .. I know you have to be missing them terribly ..

Yesterday was a wonderful day, and today is back to normal .. Our anniversary was just a quiet day .. we went to lunch and ate in the park, and then hubby went to do mom's grocery shopping, and take it over to her, and I did a few loads of laundry, and played in my playroom ..

DID get a call from the attorney .. they POA draft is being mailed to me, to look over .. the challenge will be getting the signatures and witnesses .. I can't take mom out by myself, while he's doing business in his parking lot .. Well -- I could and just leave the wheelchair in her parking spot downstairs .. He caught me off guard, and I told him to just send it to me, and we would contact him to do the signatures .. He's willing to come by her house .. since he is just down the road .. but we will take that later .. I only handle one thing at a time lately .. lol lol ..

So --today I will probably go to mom's this afternoon, as it sounded like she had a rough night, and that way she can rest this morning .. :) She DID get a call from the blood doctor and her blood test came back perfect .. her "platlet" count ??? Bill set up an appointment on the 26th for her normal family doctor, and we can get alot of the questions answered .. Hoping we can all 3 go in .... I'm taking all of the medications that came with her from the hospital / rehab and he can tell us if or not she needs it .. I personally don't believe some of it she needs .. and the false readings were from the stress of the hospital and rehab .. but that's just my opinion .. We'll find out on the 26th .. :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful day .. I'm going to work on another load of clothes/playroom time until I get ready to leave after lunch ..

Be safe, be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!

Sally - Hope your Mom's appointment went well, and that you are enjoying your day!!

Yesterday was a better day - no holiday, no birthday, just a regular day. But stayed home
today with a migraine today. It started last night, and wouldn't quit. It finally dulled this afternoon. I had my virtual doctors appointment this afternoon after lunch. It went well. She felt that my increased headaches could be caused by the depression. She added a low dose of another medication in addition to what I am already taken. We hope to drop this med when things get a bit better and I can see my family.

My daughter plans to talk to her pediatrician tomorrow about the risk they would bring us if they visit. She is struggling too. If you recall, she has been house bound since she was pregnant. First - a bad pregnancy, Second - Mira had a fractured collarbone, Third - Covid-19 She is so ready to leave the house for more than groceries!

Looks like some rain this weekend. I was hoping to put up our screen porch. We'll see. We would have to move a bird nest first. Tim said there has been a robin sitting on a nest on top, so there are probably eggs in there. Another animal in our way........

Hope all is well and stay safe!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY yesterday !!! We laughed so hard and were so silly .. it was truly what I needed, and know it was what mom needed .. Just time with her kids .. and Bill and I were teasing back and forth all afternoon .. and it just made it even more fun .. Everything we did, everything we talked about .. was silly .. (no .. Bill and I did talk a few times about short stints of serious .. but mom heard silly)

Today ... it's just all about hubby and I .. while there isn't anything to really "do" .. we are planning on spending the day together, and he offered to take me out to Burger King, and then drive to the park to have lunch .. I think that's an absolutely wonderful day !!!!!

Yes .. I'm still on a yoyo .. but sometimes the yoyo feels wonderful ... :)

Wishing everyone a great day ... be safe, be strong, be smart, and be healthy !!!!

**SIGH** Sorry your Mom was so upset that only Bill was going to the Dr. appt., but I think a wise choice was made for HIM to go since, as you say, he had the questions.

Glad at least you found your Momís crochet hooks, despite the bug-a-boo w/the order.

Good idea for her to have the Ďfall buttoní.

LOVE your lion. Beautiful eyes.

Awesome on 12k steps! Great job.

Hope you have a wonderful anniversary day! HUGS

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday was a tough day .. but I was happy to see, even though she was struggling, she still used the walker, in stead of the chair... She had a bad night sleep, and it turned through to the day .. it was almost thankful that Tyler cancelled the PT session .. The good news is the caretaker's reports are positive on her accomplishments, so it's not just my wishful thinking ..

Today is her doctor's appointment and that is what sent her off the planet yesterday morning, because only one of us can go in with her .. I explained to her that Bill and I were aware of this, and since he has all the questions .. HE is going in with her today .. I tried to explain to her, that this is the law .. not the doctor's choices .. again .. to no avail ..

I sent a text to Bill giving him warning, just in case she called him .. (like she said she was going to .. but I told her that he already knew) .. he had the heads up .. lol lol ...

By the time I got there in the afternoon, she was good; but tired .. she just had a bad night sleep and that confirmation phone call set her off ..

Today we take her to the doctor ..

I AM working on a Lion now .. a bit different than dogs .. but I have pictures of Themba .. the lion that passed last week at the Milwaukee County Zoo .. so wanted to try and see if I could get him .. After mom's phone call, I stopped my drawing, because it worked me up .. mom's sounding board .. lol .. so I got the initial layers done, but need to do the background, and shading .. I will get back to it .. just not for now .. :)

The sun is out, and the sky is blue, but it's crisp out .. Wish us luck .. :) I'm happy that Bill is coming with, but hubby offered to come with if needed ..

Tomorrow is hubby and my anniversary .. and I'm taking a day off .. told mom about it, and she's fine .. :) so while there's really nothing we can do, just spending the whole day with him, will be wonderful enough .. :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful Tuesday !!!! :)

I am going to !!! (or at least try)

Checking in to let you all know I'm ok.... Woke up this morning, just to realize it was my Dad's birthday. He would have been 76 today. He passed away at the young age of 68. Emotional roller coaster continues, but I did get an appointment with my doctor for Wednesday. It is a virtual/computer visit. This will be a first, but did all my registration and testing done today.

Made a deli pizza from Aldi for dinner. They are pretty good, and huge - perfect for two meals!

Hubby and I watched our show, and now getting ready for bed. I try to have lights out by 8:30. We watch Curse of Oak Island at night with dinner. It's a History Channel Show that we have been watching on Hulu We are on Season 4 Only four more seasons to go.....LOL

Enjoy your evening
