About Me

My photo
I am mundane and magical, Silly and serious. I am an underachiever who suspects that someday in the eternities I may yet blossom and even fruit. I am a collector of spirits and essences, a studier of mood and nuance.I have many many faults and yet I've always been loved. I am a good friend, but I will let you go if you so desire. I believe in Somewhen. I laugh easily and cannot often cry, which I know is a Flaw. Like You, I am a work in progess.

My mom's car is back. My nephew apparently went to Olive Garden with his mom. He made MY mom, who supports him, mashed potatoes, corn and, she said, some kind of sausage.
I called my mom to wish her Happy Mother's Day and listening to her I was so frustrated with her and the things she needs to get done I said,"Why don't I just come down for a few days? Just to get some of these things you really need  done. Then I will go home. I promise. Wouldn't you like to gt some of this stuff taken care of?  I was surprised when she said, "I think I would. Will you stay at the Denny's? (I usually stay at a Best Western which has an adjacent Dennys) I said I sure could. I got off the phone with her telling her I'd call back and went to put some money in the bank. Looking at the Best Western I learned a 5 night stay would be $595, which I really didn't want to afford so I booked a Quality Inn for $450. Really I will just need to sleep and bathe there. Bruce can't understand why she doesn't want me to stay with her but I can. I called her back and told her I'd see her tomorrow. I asked her to think of all the things she needs done for now. I mentioned the lightbulb that went out in the stairway (I just HATE thinking of her on those stairs) My nephew hadn't changed it for at least 2 weeks so she ws going up and down in the dark. But she says he has replaced it now. So... the list of things I think are urgent are to get her to a doctor for a blood sugar test kit (she doesn't currently have one) get her to an audiologist for a hearing test and to order hearing aids, get her to a Dr for an eye exam and eye drops to control pressure in her eyes. Take her to see if we can't find a magnifying light that will allow her to actually read her mail, take her to get her taxes done (or go myself if she doesn't need to be there) take her car to get and oil change, an inspection and be registered I'm not sure what else she urgently needs but those things are a good start. I went to bed because I've been running very tired an don't have the energy to do anything tonight. In the morning I need to notify the few people scheduled for grooming appointments that I won't be here next week. I'll offer them free replacement appointments. I've already gotten gas. I need to lay in a few supplies for Bruce.I need to pack. Things are charging now. I was trying to get some decent sleep but the phone rang and it was my mom. She told me my nephew took her car. This is without permission. He doesn't even have a driver's license. She says the car has insurance but I don't know what her liability would be. She does allow him to drive it sometimes because she needs things so she does not want to report it stolen. I just wish she would get out of there. What remains of her life should not be like this. Her life should never have been like this. Anyway I am tied up in knots right now. I can only go down and see what I can do. And let her choose to stay or move as she wants.
