Mom was very sick again last night. I slept in her room the night before, but felt I needed to get more shut eye, therefore slept up stairs. Big mistake. Mom sick again last night. She could not find the bathroom which is 2 feet from her bed. She knocked over her lamp (this is the second time) made a big mess and was so embarrassed. This is really the third time in a week that this scenario has played out. The first time she got up and cleaned up her own mess.
After I took her to the dentist yesterday I came straight home and I had a client(a Doctor) come by with three suits. My customers change in mom's over crowded bathroom, which I try to keep neat. ( it is an ongoing project of defeat). I opened the door from my shop into the bathroom and realized that after I cleaned up mom I had not cleaned up the toilet area really well. ( I know too much info). I about died of embarrassment. How could I have missed this? I mean at 3 in the morning when you are bleary eyed and gagging do you really over look that much mess?
I explained to the customer that I had been up with mom and had just arrived back from the dentist and had no time to deep clean as I was frantically pulling disinfectant and wipes out from under the sink. He took the items from me and cleaned the whole toilet area. I was so shocked. Then he washed his hands and carried on. Can you believe that? What a nice man.
Mom had two small cavities and I had NONE! My teeth were great, good bones, good gums no signs of any gum disease. With my sjogren's this is great news.
I have three wedding dresses in the shop right now and several suits, so I have plenty to do.
Mom made Swedish meatballs yesterday and we froze most of them. She is at her church group this morning and I hope she has a good time. I know she is lonely. As much as I try I cannot replace all the friends she had in her old neighborhood.
Well I had better get busy. Need to put on some make-up so I quit scaring people.
It is Sluggy's birthday today so go wish her a Happy Birthday!
Have a great and productive day!
