oh yes..linda...wanted to say...sure wish there was a way to protect people that are slipping into dementia...I know they will say "no, I am fine and I can handle my own stuff..."...when they can't...sooooo frustrating...good luck..
Just wanted to add my welcome...glad you found us...I sure am dealing with some of the same things...really, I have been around here for awhile now...one of the more "old timers"...and yet, except in this group, I don't talk about it much...it is something I feel like I have to deal with...as I have to many other people in my life dealing with other things...I know I am rambling...but when there are so few people in your life that understand...it is difficult to deal with..
Anyway...glad you are here...you are among friends..
Hello...a beautiful day today..very warm...got up to 90 degrees..
I spent the day trying to get some things ready for my daughters baby shower next week...it is with her friends..not mine..but I want it to be nice...they are just getting together at a local park..
Luckily, today was a non-student day..teachers had to work..but I took a vacation day...and I really spent it running around..got some things done..just feel quite disorganized about it all..I was going to "give" her the shower, but her bf's sister sent out invites saying she was giving the shower..so I am trying to step in and help, and not be take-overish..
Mel...where are you again? My best friend forever just moved outside (north of ) Kansas City...oh how I miss her..
Lou...glad the snow is melting...man..you really got hit this year !
mimi...take good care ....thinking of you..hoping the stress is working itself out along with any other bugs..
Cory...thanks for stepping in for Mimi..oh yes...we sure all do miss our Mimi! Hope all is ok...and that you are getting some REST !
The weekend was ok...dad was actually having a fairly good weekend...slept fairly well, with only getting up a couple of times per night...but I don't sleep well...on alert for any sound..so no matter what Mondays are a exhausting...and then with the change..didn't automatically wake up, like normal ...the alarm surprised me...usually the sun out wakes me up...
The kid I work with at school was absent today..made for an easy day for me !!! Tomorrow will be more of a challenge I am sure !...He doesn't like making up missed work !
I have to get mom to do exercises...and use a walker..two things she is not happy about...hard to get her to do anything !
