The week has been a pretty good one. Since school is out now, I have the grandkids more often, which is a good thing. I have been taking them to the home with me when I go and that really seems to cheer mom up. Tuesday was mom's 85th birthday. There is a little room there for people to have privacy for family get togethers. I went over and decorated, party balloon, tablecloth, the works. Amanda and the girls came. We had little sandwiches, chips and dip and deviled eggs. I made a cake, too. Mom had a great time. I'll try to post the picture here.
The weather hasn't been the greatest here lately, so we haven't been on the porch much. Yesterday though was nice, so we all sat out there for quite awhile. One problem we've been having is that mom is going through pants like crazy. Usually I get there before lunch and take her then. Alot of times she starts peeing right when I pull her pants down. Floor gets wet, pants, shoes, socks. The last couple of days, I have been there later, after lunch, so I take her right in then and the same thing happens. Today when I went in, she had already had her pants changed once, I put her on after lunch and she did the same thing. So that makes three pair of pants in one day. She is supposed to be on a toileting schedule, but I am beginning to question that. It sure makes for alot of laundry.
I have to go to the lawyer tomorrow and pick up the check for mom's house. I ran into a problem when I couldn't find the deed to the cemetery plot. I talked with someone who keeps records for the cemetery and at first they didn't even see my dad's name. Today I talked with another person, though, who says my dad has a double lot, so hopefully that is taken care of. Then going through papers (mom was not very organized) the last piece of paperwork I found for her life insurance had my brother as the beneficiary. I really don't know what to do about that. Talk with the lawyer, I guess. We also have to go look at headstones, I have no idea what they cost.
So at least some things are getting done. I am still feeling pretty exhausted. Alot of people tell me I look tired, but I realized I really must look pretty bad, when my youngest grand-daughter told me yesterday that my eyes looked really droopy!
I am missing the chats on Tuesday, but I am having trouble getting into them. I hope you are all having a good week.
