Do you ever get overwhelmed by how much is going on, not only in your life, but in those around you that you are close to as well? That's how I feel right now. My friend's mom passed on July 4 nine years ago, and while the day-to-day gets easier, the date of death, birthday, and other special occasions can be difficult.
I have some medical issues going on as does my mom. Her dementia is getting worse. I believe 100% she should be in an assisted living community, but she doesn't want to move. I can't blame her. She's lived in the same house for over 50 years. But sometimes she needs assistance, and I hate her asking neighbors. Home health care comes for specific needs when arranged by a doctor, but they only come 2 or 3 times a week. If it isn't ordered by a doctor, it's very expensive. My sister and I both live about an hour away, so we can't really go over there everyday. Gas and tolls add up. Plus it takes so long. I wish I could get her into a community place near me... not a nursing home, but a place where she can live independently as long as she is capable, and where there are qualified nursing staff if needed. If you've ever had to do this for a parent, please let me know how you did it.
The other day, I heard the term "untimely death" on the news or a TV show, can't remember which. It basically means the person died too young or died unexpectedly. It got me wondering, is there such a thing as a timely death? Does that mean that the person who died is old? Or that the death was expected? Just seems weird.
And the other day I heard someone being described as, "the kind of person who will give you the shirt off of your back." Shouldn't that be "his or her back?" Is this person going to take your shirt and give it to someone else, because that's what it sounded like.
Let's go to some funnies:
|This is how my weeks seem to go!|
|They never do!|
|They took all the fun out it!|
|I get this message all the time!|
|Especially at night!|
|This is us in about 30 years!|
|I'm surprised babies don't cry at Jack-in-the-boxes!|
|Everyone say, "Awwwwww."|
