You have no reason to not be happy. You have got it made, old mammy is just a minor setback in your life. Dang, you can't expect 100% bliss. The truth sure angers some people.
I have to agree. I can't believe people can be so miserable. Do you think o wise one with gems that she might feel jealous and competitive with her sons' women. Cause Boy she knows how to dish out: He told me if I need anything, you're to get it for me. I know her monthly check's about $800. She spends about $160 on cigs. I get tired of it. My dad and mom aren't like that in any way. I could have it worse. Now, she could move in. Haha.

So Una, any plans for the Holiday? We're planning a big dinner here. Baking some cakes and pies. We might fix several meats. Little bit of everything.

I had. patient who's husband divorced her and remarried while she was living there. He decided to take her to visit the new wife. Well, on the return trip, she barfed in his car. As I assist him he say, She used to help me. I don't know what's gotten into her. I didn't know whether to cry or laugh. I hope, he had fun cleaning the mess. Poor Lady. Hand me a hanky. I don't know he lived with himself on Sunday. I guess, it's not a sin.

Haha. I guess, I'm already conning her when I'm low on cash and need$10 to help with fuel. O boy, I heard through the Ol grapevine that I should be spending more freely and not asking for a dime. This was a reply that was made when I took $10 or $20 dollars for a whole year's worth of monthly trips of at least twice to three times a month. I remember when I was employed and bought a carton of cigs here and there it was okay. But me needing $10 for the year. And only because we had no income for two weeks. I had barely enough for food.

LOL, the words of a child, full of truth and simple wisdom.
I'm often told that child is dimwit tend and won't get any where. He's not like the sister who is mammy's true grandchild. I don't know Una. I think you might not be considerate all the time. But you do have to agree it's not to be mean to children. It's not their fault parents get divorced. And it's not their choice when the parents find new partners and acquire new step, grandparents.

Nothing big. I'm not much into Christmas. We have a Christmas program at church with supper following. My two neices will have a Christmas get togather and meal at my sisters house, my sister invited me at the Thanksgiving meal, she's not able to do much anymore. My Daughter, her 11 year fiance(shacked up)and my step grandson will come to my shack probably on Christmas Eve. I don't decorate or shop. I just give my three money. LOL. I don't do gifts at my sisters. Whoo Wee they turned out kids by the litter. I'm not ancient yet and already a great great uncle with them. See I tell the truth on my bunch too. I don't discriminate.

I'm back. Just want to clarify something. I wasn't referring to people like you AW when I referred to geriatric centers earlier. I've watched people pass and their loved one sit in the community with their loved one dying and never come to visit or call. I saw an elderly lady with a tear running down her cheek die without her sole heir being there. We called him. He refused to come. I had another lady call out for me to be there beside her, but unfortunately by the time I washed my hands to get next door. Her daughter and husband said she was gone. I never know to this day why she wanted me there. All I know is that if you genuinely care about someone that you will try to be all that you can be for the person. I've seen many a Lady who had their husband in the facility. They reminded me of school girls. Married 50-60 years. One patient's wife said he would roll into the floor and she just couldn't provide the care he needed. I said, you know that's why I'm here. Often cried when I saw her about town. It hurt me also. Because I knew where she wanted him to be: Home with her.

I know exactly what you are talking about. I went to the nursing facility every day for 2 years, sometimes more than once a day on weekends and when I was not still working. I have seen those poor lonely souls pass with just the staff helping. I always admired those folks that could do that work.

I have seen family come sit in the community room watching big screen television and never go to the patient's rooms. Sometimes when patients were there in wheelchairs watching something they enjoyed, the visitors would even change the channels. No compassion at all.

Well, enjoy the company and dinner. That money should be fine. My brother's giving his teenager money. I don't decorate, but we do try to have a Yule dinner. Honey is required to choose holidays and with two children, we try to make it nice for them. It's really the only time of the year to get together. Work and just living take a all the other time. Hopefully, AW, you, dog and that son of your can get some quality time. That job is rough. And with all that wood cutting and dog keeping you up at night taking his potty breaks, sounds like you could do with a goo meal to go along with what's left of a good heart;)

My brother told me the same thing. I do agree with you. You got a point. I'm not in that business any more. Very stressful.Yes, AW seems to be the kind of man my dad is: Don't give no crap, don't take no crap.Work hard and be happy with the simple life. That's what I like about my dad.He won't say a word even when he's been wronged. Had a family member want money back in the '80s for a gallon of milk supposedly. Dad says, Wait just a minute we can help you out there. Got an extra gallon in the refrigerator. My uncle lost his liver and developed a blood disorder within several years, but dad knew. In his own way, Dad was trying to help not waste.

It has disturbed me also. Nursing personnel setting channels not asking or family members sitting in lounge areas instead of the room. Well, fortunately she wasn't lonely.. And it would have been no different if you were going to work every day. That's a lot of time whether she was at home or not. I knew a lady who did exactly the same, and she always had the biggest smile lying beside him on the bed. I told her do exactly that. That job can be very emotional as well as physical. But they're lazy employees as well.

I even bought an old handcap short bus with a lift and took the seats out and would go drive her around town letting her sit up front listening to the music and looking at something besides the 4 walls. On Wednesday nights we stopped at Baskin Robbins for milk shakes. She could not hold an ice cream cone but could squeeze a milk shake between her arm and body.

On Sundays, I would bring her home and cook her meal and let her watch television and then she would ask me to take her back so she could go take care of "her" people for the evening meal. She had 4 people that would sit with her at the community dining table that could not speak but he could tell the dining room staff what they wanted or needed. She felt usefull.

Ok AW, you have made me cry now. I tell you what, if everybody took care of their family like you did this world would be such a better place. This stuff hits so close to home with me because my mom has had two strokes this year and now I take care of her here at home. She doesn't want to go to a nursing home and I pray to God it never comes to that but I know it could. I'm doing my best to keep that from happening. All I can say is sincerely GOD BLESS YOU!

With 2 sons and all of us working, we just had no caregivers. So I stepped down from my position and went part time and tried to hire help to fill in the gaps when I was working and not there to take care of her needs, including hygeine. That did not work out and I had no choice but to send her to the nursing facility and go back to full time work just seeing her in the mornings before work, evenings and weekends.

Just don't let the caring for your Mom ruin your own health. You will be no good to her if you get yourself down. Take Care, I need to go get busy around here and not be dwelling on memories. Thanks for letting me share with you and Raven. I will say that I am and was blessed to have had the time we did have together.

I have to reaffirm the post AW made. Take care of yourself ;) And, blessings to you. You are a wonderful and a loving human being to be her provider. And Happy Yuletime as well. I am glad to hear these true stories and they've made a positive impact on me. I've a lot to do. So, I'm definitely being the bee for a while.
so true

AW, you are trully one of a kind.. yOu have such a good heart.... My day has been one of the worst in years, and been really low you could say.. But this has brought a tear of joy to my heart , instead of all these I have been shedding today, of pain. Some woman somewhere would be so lucky to call you the love of her life. You have given me back a little hope for today...

I can completely understand what you went through. I am blessed that I can stay here and care of my mom and I still have an income, so that's covered. My problem is that I have very little help. I have a sibling and their family, three adults but they "don't have time" to help me the majority of the time. I am the one responsible 24/7. I think since the middle of October somebody has been here one 24 hour period to let me have a break. They have NO IDEA how sometimes you just need a mental break!!! I would also like to have a little bit more of a life myself but it is pretty much on hold. But that's okay because even though me and mom didn't always agree on everything (and still don't!), I couldn't ask for a better mother. I do have a wonderful boyfriend that helps me more than my own family, no comparison! He will do anything I need him to do and 90% of the time he offers to help before I think to ask him. Mom is still getting around fairly well on her walker so she's not completely helpless. I don't like leaving her home alone but sometimes I have to. I get her settled in so hopefully she won't have to get up, but still I worry the whole time I am gone. I finally decided that either she has to be by herself a little bit or she has to go to a nursing home. There are just things that I have got to go do sometimes like pay bills and grocery shop and now and then I do take 2-3 hours for me. It gets hard sometimes but I don't want her in a nursing home no more than she wants to be there. But if something happens to me, no doubt that is where she will be. Thanks you guys (AW and Raven). It's nice to talk to somebody that understands.
