Good Week Turning Bad


Good Week Turning Bad

house_contract-101003_640Our home was going great; we had our second week of helping from 9 to 6. Mom was enjoying getting used to both of the new caregivers. She has been in a pretty good mood. On only one day, the anxiety pill wasn't given on time and when that happens Mom turns into someone no enjoys being around. We have a contract on her house which as been on the market since November. We got $900 dollars less than asking. It took forever to get her to say yes. I haven't told her we are putting a new roof on the house and it's costing us over $10,000 to get the roof. Her old roof is 28 years old so I think she got her money's worth. My older brothers were okay with the price but my younger brother gave me a hard time. I gave up listening to him.

Yesterday did not go well at all. Mom was in a good mood in the morning, but I went out in the afternoon and evening so she is mad at me plus we leave Monday for two weeks in NC. We are taking our 5-year-old nephew with us.

To matters worse, I had a terrible fight with my daughter-in-law for not telling the truth and wasting my time. I don't know if I am angry or just disappointed. I will never understand her or my son.

Well enough complaining for now.

Have a great weekend.

Have a wonderful vacation Janet! I'm sorry for all you are going through, but I hope the time away will help.


Hi Janet--I am sooooo glad you are able to enjoy two weeks away. Good for you! It's important to get a break from trying to please everyone because that is simply exhausting. \r\n\r\nI hope you able to enjoy today with your husband. :)
