Thursday, snowed in!

     This so rarely happens here but we are snowed in.  We got about 8 inches of snow last night.  Hub's is out with the snow blower and his phone is ringing off the hook.  He just stopped in for a soda and some cookies and was off over to Clarkston to blow out my Sister's clinic so the doctors can get into their offices.  Not that he needed another job.

     Mom is upstairs pouting, sis really chewed her butt last night and she is trying her old let's take sides game and I am not having it.  She is selfish and unfair.  Yesterday morning she could not dress herself.  She is better today.  I think her fall made her sore.  I love my mother and I want to take care of her, but I need a little co-operation and appreciation on her part.  She is just so mean.  Now Sis is her favorite and always has been, so the only way I can get her to leave me alone is to get Sis to tell her off. Such a dysfunctional dynamic.

     Thanks for all the kind words yesterday, I really needed to hear them or read them. 

Have a great and productive day!



  1. It truly is hard to deal with your parents as they age (I still have both of mine), so I can't even imagine being under the same roof with them. They turn into "kids" & you feel like the parent. Cut yourself some slack, Kim. It's NOT easy having your mom underfoot 24/7. It's OK if you seem like your not accomplishing as much as you'd like - not the end of the world. Do what you have to do - the other stuff, if you get to it, great, if You have my admiration for taking your mom in to live with you - some just put their parents into a nursing home and forget about them. Pray for strength & patience.......lots & lots of patience! ;-)
