The house stinks. The sewage is getting taken care of. I think. The drive is worse than you can imagine and I hope he'll clean out the pipes mom says are clogged inside. I bet something is broken inside and not out. But, she's getting it taken care of. Because of the water problem, no one can shower. Or there is a distinct lack of water for a shower. My hair is all grimy. I did rinse last night and am not using that soap again! I itched quite a bit!!!
The debris is not healthy. I cannot imagine how mom does not SEE what is in front of her. I pray if I ever get like this, my family steps in and takes over.
That is the hardest part. Stepping in. She refuses to need taken care of. Yet, she has things she has saved for me to do. Today, she should have let me drive. She parked askew often and drove even more erratically. If I have imagined car accidents in the past years I've been home, this year I can truly see one happening. And it will not be mom's fault!
She should have stopped and gotten food. The only place she suggested was a bad choice and she feels put upon if I suggest a place. I had 3 glucose tablets and an apple fritter for lunch. She purchased food at the store (I never stay with her as my needs vary from hers and I always wait near the door with a book.) and brought it home. She was shaking, but she didn't care. I had the apple fritter so I knew my blood was high enough to not pass out. At least I could talk to any police or firemen who came to rescue us if needed! She carried a bunch of groceries up the drive to the house. She did need to stop once. I mentioned she could leave the bags and then I could come back and get them. Gods! You would have thought I suggested dying. Maybe I did? She panted her way to the house and put away things and is now happily watching the RNC while eating a partial lunch. Not much stays in her system anymore, so she has to search hard for something she wants to eat. Things low in fat and carbs. I guess-
It is going to be hard for me to take charge and be aggressive. I hate being aggressive. She detests being forced upon to do things. Yet, I am NOT going to go thru 3 bottles of glucose tablets this summer in order to keep her happy. I will find ways to get real food. Even if it does mess up her schedule.
