Tuesday, Things are a little calmer

     I was able to get my mom into a quick care with my doctor, who specializes in old people diseases.  (I am not old but I have a old people disease).  She has a pinched nerve and they were able to prescribe her something for her nausea and another type of pain killer and anti inflammatory.  She has not been sick since late last night.  She is still down but at least we got some rest last night.  Poor darling.  I am still doing laundry, but things are looking up.  She was so sure it was her hip.  She has had both knees, replaced and thought her hip was next, so we are grateful.  Doctor said this should run its course in about a week.

     I was able to get a great deal of work done in the shop today.  Both of my antique car dresses turned out beautiful and the owners were so pleased.  I have two Grandmother of the bride outfits to alter and some very difficult jackets to alter tomorrow.  I am so grateful for the work.

Out My Window:  Hubby will mow yard tonight, we are eating fresh squash and beans out of the garden.  Also new potatoes.  I picked purple ones tonight!  So good.  I love going to my freezer and pulling out a small pork roast (I paid less than $2.00) slicing it into 1/2 inch slices and then pounding them thin and frying them in Pam spray with a panco crust.  So tender.  Then I filled out with yellow squash, green beans and purple potatoes.  It was a beautiful dinner and CHEAP!  We have home canned peaches with cottage cheese for dessert.  I love my garden.

     Thanks for all the support the last 48 hours, I am sorry to be such a crank, but I do get tired of my sisters never being there when there are problems and then telling me what I did wrong when I tried to solve them.  This has gone on for as long as I can remember.  They say I am a martyr.  But some one has to do the work!  I am supposed to sit by and watch my parents suffer and not try to help.  I don't get it.  But I can't change it.

Have a great evening.



  1. I feel her pain. I had a pinched nerve from a herniated disc for more than 3 years. Just had surgery for it. Still out on whether it was worth it or not!

    Don't worry about feeling like you are a crank - we all get there. I am glad things are starting to settle down for you. :)

  2. I am sorry that you have to care for your mother on your own. I know exactly how you are feeling. I wish my brother would step up and help with Ray and my mother...he's the oldest! You are a fabulous daughter...let me know if you want me to beat them up:)

  3. Glad mom is on the mend. Don't forget to take care of YOU.

  4. Kim! You're back! Seriously, thank goodness all is okay.

  5. Kim,
    Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog. I really can't even fathom the pain you must have felt to lose a child.

    Now you are singlehandedly taking care of your Mom. You are definitely an angel..and you must be so strong!

    Sending {{hugs}} your way ...hoping that you take some time for yourself!
