I do everything for her. So sad. She used to be a fabulous cook. My grandma too. They taught me. I taught my girls. I’ve always said that New Orleans has great people, music and food!
You NAILED it! You totally get it! I adored your response and thanks for making me giggle. Cats are such interesting creatures. I'm allergic to them and when my allergist suggested that I get rid of my cat after doing my allergy testing, I looked at him as if he had two heads. When he saw that I wasn't going to budge, he prescribed allergy meds and said to me with a sly smile, "I get it. I understand. I have a cat. But when your cat dies, don't get another one."
Cats are so independent. Old people have trouble relinquishing that independence. My 96 year old cousin just renewed her driver's license even after getting a speeding ticket at which time she told off the cop! So funny.
My daughter caught my mom rummaging through my husband's toolbox awhile back and said to her, "Grandma, what are you doing?" To which she replied that she only wanted to fix the brakes on her walker. My mother has always been quite handy but my daughter did not want her to risk hurting herself and tightened up the breaks for her. I finally got her to stop reaching for things in her closet because she has fallen reaching for things. It is so hard for them. Mom has Parkinson's. She has had home health with occupational and physical therapy but she doesn't keep up with the home exercises after they leave. Her balance is terrible. Nearly no strength left.
Yes, my mom lives with me and she wants everything her way. I do wait on her hand and foot. She has Parkinson's, is 93. Was just trying to make myself giggle for a bit comparing her to the personality of a cat.
