I don't know whether to scream or laugh at the latest development. Every day is a new battle with this grump.
After touring EVERY facility in my city, Dad AGREED to an independent living place. We picked out a wall color and put down a deposit. This morning he demands for me to take him back to his house (which should be condemned).
He said he thought about it and he can't "afford" to pay the $900 per month it would cost for him to live there after all of his VA benefits kick in. Mind you, this man has LOTS of money. The government takes care of him VERY well.
So, as I (again) discussed the alternatives ... paying for 24 hour care and day care vs. living at the facility he states that he can live with my sister (who pushed him off on me)
Sidenote: We agreed that once we got Dad settled in my city, my sister would move into his paid for house and renovate it... I'm not sure where he got the idea that she would WELCOME him moving in with her (nor did he ask),..
When I shot down that idea he says: I can just remarry (this would be wife #8)!!! OK... who would marry a blind, non breathing, miserable toothless old grump with incontinence issues? AN OPPORTUNIST!!!!
Then he says... I can buy a bride....
Am I going to have to go through this everyday?
PS If I hear him brag any more about the "friend" that was taking money from him I am going to scream!
I guess what I've done for him (give up my ENTIRE lifestyle for the past three weeks) doesn't matter.
I'm so angry...
I'm tempted to say go back home to the house that's falling to the ground with the friend that's stealing from you that will continue to chain smoke around you and drive you around while he's intoxicated... fall down the stairs... ingest the second hand smoke and last less than six months.....
