The Grunch (a.k.a. I Miss . . . )
I was at the farmer’s market today, missing my mom and the way she used to be, and suddenly thought about How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Hence, “The Grunch” made me laugh! She caught her finger in a door and does not know how she did it, so I miss her taking care of me. Any ideas about how to care for injuries with a reluctant caree? (She won’t go to the doc and I’m not her primary caregiver.)
I miss the way her facial features were (with dementia her features seem to be like something out of Humpty Dumpty). I miss having a manicure/pedicure with my mom. I miss having coffee with my mom. So where was it that the “The Grunch” stole “My Mom”?
