I need a little break from life today. Argh! I am so far behind in getting the house ready to put on the market... we are having cheap new carpets installed and HAVE to get the rooms cleared out. Seems like we will never get there.
Mom apparently thinks that I am the only one capable of taking care of her. If I am not around she waits (and waits and waits and waits) for me even though there are other, perfectly capable people there to help her. Then the minute I walk into the house with my arms full of groceries or something, she IMMEDIATELY wants my attention so I can take her to the bathroom.
Last night I was coming home from the hospital, stopped at the store for groceries and in a hurry to shower and change to meet my dh and his boss for dinner way back up in the city. Of course she pulled it on me then and I lost it with her. I chewed her out like a little child. Her defense is wonderful - she just acts like she can't understand any of it.
Why was I coming home from the hospital? Harriett is there, sick as a dog, and we have no idea what is wrong with her. She's lost over 50 pounds in the last four months but we've attributed it to her oral surgery. More recently she has not been able to keep food down or have any appetite and has severe stomach pains. I thought we'd go to the ER and they'd look at her, give her something and send her home. Nope, she's been there two nights already and who knows how many more. The clincher is she has no insurance. When it rains it pours. I am so worried about her!!
Last night dh's mom called and she is in the hospital in Seattle. Why can't this all just stop? I want my life back, nice and simple and easy...
