Well Mom had been having very loose stools for awhile now, Dr thinks it her meds ( I think it s the fact she eats little and drinks wine at night..LOL) So this morning I came down, saw a spot on the floor.. what is this? She didn't make it in time, so I cleaned it up,, no problem, she was mortified but we got past that. Went out to breakfast, some shopping, home,, again she didn't quite make it but got herself cleaned up, I did laundry ( Yes she wears depends). So a few hours later our puppers is looking at us , miserably,, so sad. Hubs had just taken her out for her walk. We are talking to her, and I got up to get her.. she pooped right by my foot! Mom laughed and said maybe the dog has her problem, or maybe I need to take mom out for a walk every few hours! Gotta love them!

As awful as I felt about institutional care at least I knew that mom was (mostly) well cared for. Maybe you and the other family members need to arrange a protest complete with media, and all the residents could hold up signs detailing the care they are not getting.

One would have thought last night was a full moon at hoca

a new resident was having a melt down (rightfully so imo).

another resident said the principal told her to ask me to take her to her room, which I did as no one else was around to do so - her closet was bare, no nightie - staff had removed her clothes since she packs them in a plastic bag to leave otherwise

for the second week in a row, the Viking was left alone and not given dinner. Staff called the new head nurse who pretended to be aghast - meanwhile her staff is overworked and quitting

by the time I got mom out of solitary confinement and a plate she was in no mood to eat -

another family member found her bed bound mom in a wet bed with a tray left in the corner of the room

by bedtime, the Viking said no to prayers and fought falling asleep saying, don't you dare leave me

The doctor said it is medically necessary that I lounge on the beach for a week.

I must be old.  I remember when candy bars were 5 cents!  We buy candy we like for Halloween, so that we have some leftovers for us.  In rural areas like ours, kids are driven to homes for trick-or-treat, and only to those they know are safe.  When did dangerous candy start happening?

MsMadge,
A Hershey' s candy bar is still ten cents.
It is just that it's the smaller Halloween treat size.

But I do remember the houses that were giving out full-size Hershey' s at Halloween when I was just a wee trick or treater. Lol.

I ran into the market today for some basics

the woman in front of me must have had ten pounds of carrots 🥕

i was feeling sassy and asked her if she had a rabbit 🐰

she said, no, it’s for juicing

I replied, oh good for you - I’m buying candy - they are two for a $1

of course, I remember when a Hershey bar was ten cents

My friend suggests slipping your glasses inside a sock, keeping an extra pair in the kitchen to read a recipe.

The fires have some containment, the winds have calmed. It is a sunny day, with most of the smoke far away. We are okay here.

I must begin to partake in that fashion trend! I have so many socks that one will develop a hole in the toe or heel or disappear completely! And I keep them, do not wear them. But getting over my aversion to mismatched socks would solve that problem!👣👣👣😆

I love my socks, very colorful patterns, bright colors. No better gift and my kids know it!

Wearing mismatched socks can be a fashion statement.
When I read about it, I did try it a few times, on purpose.

I always wanted to be tall! I was tiny as a kid and still tiny. But my grandfather built me a pair of stilts as a kid and I could step off my porch onto them.

I practiced and practiced until I got it and I became so good that I could walk around the entire block on my stilts. I felt so tall on them! I loved those things. I could have joined the circus because I got to where I could walk anywhere on those stilts. The other kids in my neighborhood wanted some too and grandpa built some for all the kids.

I couldn’t reach the pedals on my first bike. I had to have wooden blocks attached to reach them.

I desperately wanted to make it to 100 pounds when I graduated but never did. Stayed at 96 pounds. Not too much more than that now. I got sick of being called ‘bird legs’. Been that way all my life. I was always very active though. Guess it’s my metabolism too. Nowadays I ride an exercise bike because I had a terrible bicycle accident in my 40’s and had to have steel rods placed on both bones in my arm.

An ER doctor once told me that he saw lots of 40 year old women wipe out trying to in line skate with their kids! Hahaha. I never tried those things. My kids loved them and skateboarding.

Tall can be beautiful Send but I reached my full height of 5'10" when I was eleven. I definitely did not feel beautiful then. I just wanted to be small. Now I've started to shrink and am 5'9". Maybe I ll still get my wish.

Madge, things were always disappearing at my mom's nursing home. Socks, makeup, a nice comforter I bought her. I never said anything cause it wasn't till after my mom had passed and I was clearing her room out that I noticed. By then I had other more important matters on my mind.

So no necklace and you'd look absolutely giraffe-like. No socks, like a orangutan. Just think of the possibilities.

I always felt too tall so I guess then the solution is five watches on each arm. Okay..........

I don't read fashion magazines by the way. Too depressing.

Carry on.
