Good morning all.

Time for a new thread.

Let's start with Weary's last post on the other thread.




Still on the rollercoaster
Mom had another episode with a nightmare that she perceives has real. It seems she dreams these things and upon waking she's in between the sleeping and waking world and continues the nightmare. She asked me why do I have her chained to the bed. Why am I so mean-what did she ever do? Why did I tell everyone that her house just disappeared-so no one can find her? She says I'm evil and hell bound.
I reassure her and say she had a bad dream, that I would never do that- I love her. I'm sorry she is having nightmares. Eventually she comes around to somewhat normalcy. I know I can't let myself feel hurt by this but I do. Then yesterday she said My neighbor wanted to take my bills to send to you (I've been taking care of paying them) but I told him no- that you'll be here tomorrow. You're coming tomorrow right? I said no mom. But my care provider said you were. (I know she didn't) I said no you must have had a dream. Why aren't you coming?(I've made the trip twice recently. I have only a few days PTO and I am broke as a joke. My daughters wedding is in 2 weeks, etc etc etc. My next trip can't be until I get the feel she is days from death. Yes I have guilt guilt guilt) I was just on my way into a restaurant with my husband who feels totally neglected and rightfully so. Every waking hour I am either texting with care provider, taking phone calls from her or hospice providers or speaking with my mother on the phone. I don't know how my day job puts up with it. I see myself not getting my work done in a timely manner and my business I own with my husband has been put on the backburner. I only do the bare minimum and soon its going to all blow up in my face.
I feel totally guilty whenever I do anything for myself because something always happens- some mini crisis that I wasn't available to help out with.
Well on that note- I'm going to try and get a mani-pedi this morning and look for a mother of the bride dress. This should be a happy time for me but I just feel like it is work and a nuisance. I don't let on to my daughter this fact- but in my heart I'm just so low.

Weary I am so sorry you are going through so much right now. All I can say is do the best you can and it should all work out for you. That has always been the case for me. Don't run yourself ragged. Just do what you are able to.

I know that this is hard for you right now. But I feel that things will work out the way that they should.

Hang in there Weary,

We are all here for you...

Gentle hugs,

Karen...

Cool, dreary Sunday Morning
....BUT, I got my grocery shopping done...

~ Joyce

Did You Know
Ed Cox from San Francisco invented the pot scrubbing S.O.S. pads in 1917.
His wife came up with the name, which stands for "Save Our Saucepans."

The citrus soda "7 UP" was created in 1929 by Charles Leiper Grigg,.
The original name of the popular drink was "Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda",
.........but it got changed to "7 UP."

It's quite possible the drink’s changed name was meant to be a enigma, given that its creator never publicly explained it. It could even have been a nonsense term meant to leave people wondering as a way of generating interest in the beverage. (We humans do love mysteries, after all.)

Joyce:

Did you know, the Polaroid Land Camera was invented by a Mr. Land?

After he took a picture of his young daughter, she waned to know, "Where's the picture?"

Nobody had ever thought of that concept before.

So with the concept in mind, Mr. Land invented a camera that would develop the picture instantly, so that he could give his daughter the picture right after he took it.

Joyce:

I did not know that you owned a 1949 Polaroid Camera.

The first such camera I ever saw was in about 1955. I didn't realize that they went back even further than that.

A camera we did have in 1939 was an 8mm home movie camera.

It was invented in 1932 when they cut 16mm film in half, and came up with the home movie camera.

The first television I ever saw was in 1949.

Don't remember the year...but my Dad bought the 2nd television set to be installed in my home town in Massachusetts. All of a sudden we had SO many 'friends'...(ya shur) who wanted to come visit and watch.

Have a lot of 16mm film footage taken in the 30's (of me) ...but no camera or projector.
My son has been transcribing them onto CD's.

Karen, know what you mean about price increase. I was shocked today when I saw a can of cherries to top the cheese cake was over $4.00

Good morning all...
A cloudy day right now...with rain expected, BUT it will reach almost 70° today !!!!
Then, at least for the next ten days, it will sink down to the 50's and even the 40's.
Guess that's to be expected this time of year.

Hope you have a 'good' one

Did You Know
In Kentucky, it is illegal to carry ice cream in your back pocket

Baskin Robbins once made ketchup ice cream.
This was the only vegetable flavored ice cream produced.

However, the product was never added to the fifty-one flavors line-up or offered for sale since they thought it would not sell well

The last thing Elvis Presley ate before he died was four scoops of ice cream and 6 chocolate chip cookies

My favorite ice cream right now is Blue Bunny Bunny Snacks Salted Caramel Pretzel

Mom has had several good days-her primary dr. was correct- hospice had her over medicated which was causing hallucinations and delusions. Appears the drugs are working out of her system

Still overwhelmed but dealing with it better during an upswing

Thanks for the encouragement & support

Have a good one, all...

Did You Know
The first TV commercial advertisement was by the Bulova Watch company on July 1, 1941. The watch company paid $9.00 for an announcement that was 10 seconds long

Daytime dramas are called Soap Operas because they were originally used to advertise soap powder.
In America in the early days of TV, advertisers would write stories around the use of their soap powder

98% of houses in the United States have at least one television set

It's that time of year again...having to 'prove I'm still poor' to get help with Medicare premiums and Home Energy Assistance. Day to day I do well enough, but, having to look at the hard facts tends to drag me down. Bad timing, considering the garden is preparing for it's winter sleep and the indoor garden hasn't started blooming yet. Sigh.

It's considerably colder today. Trying to 'cheer myself up' by thinking about wearing all of my cute boots and new gloves! I have my electric fireplace going today, too! Mmmmm, and it's hot cocoa weather! It's also the time of year I do my best cooking! Soups and stews, roasts and baking! Yes, I CAN enjoy this time of year!

I'm also planning on getting back to the home improvement list. Up next...window trim! Lisa bought me a compound miter saw for my birthday! By spring, this place should be looking fantastic!

Good day all--Up early to teach in China--the time change means I have to get up an hour earlier--since China does not follow savings time. I am tired, and ran out of my painkillers. Have tutoring all day, and will run over to pick the meds this afternoon. I am applying to a few other teaching services--lessons being scheduled are sporadic.

Down about Mom's death--down about the ending of my garden for the winter. Down about finances. Down about relationship. Just-down.

Sometimes there is no other way to feel Myself when things go wrong for us. I totally understand... You are normally an upbeat person so I know that this is real hard for you. Things do change and it takes time for them to get better, but try to keep that glimmer of hope going. It wont be like this forever.

Grieving a loved one takes a lot of time in some cases. Go with it the best that you can. It really is normal.

I hope that things get better for you soon.

Pitmom, Joyce, Jamie, Weary and Trina. I hope you all are having a good day. Cold here today. Don't even like going outside, will probably snow a bit. I guess winter is on it's way here. Though I read that the temps are suppose to be above normal for winter here. I hope. I also hope that doesn't mean more snow, sometimes it does.

Hang in there everybody. Enjoy the day.

Hugs, Karen...

Hi
Mom continues to stay coherent and voice sounds strong
A week ago I was sure death was imminent
So as the roller coaster seems level I am trying to live in the here and now
Tonight I am looking forward to watching my favorite show while sipping a cocktail

Hope everyone is well tonight
From what I read there are some ups some downs
Saw everyone is doing their best to keep a good attitude

HT
Hope you get pain relief
When my hands hurt I immerse them in hot water or wrap a heating pad around them
All my best

Good morning everyone.
So glad the voting is over. I had to stop answering the phone because of the unsolicited election calls.

Not all polar bears hibernate....only pregnant female polar bears do

It takes approximately a month for a polar bear cub to start to see and hear after it is born.

Even though a polar bear's fur looks white it is actually colorless and is made with hollow tubes.
The reason the bear looks white is because the rough inner surface of the tubes make light scatter and reflect at many different angles which gives the white appearance

Good Morning all. I am late to the party today. Moving slow because it is so cold. The sun is out but only suppose to be around 40 today.

I knew about the polar bear's color, but didn't know that they didn't usually hibernate. Except for pregnant females. Thanks Joyce for sharing.

Joyce, I hope you are having a good day today. I know about the phone calls. I have caller ID but that doesn't stop if from ringing.

Jamie, Weary, Myself, Pitmom and Trina, I hope you all are having a good day too. I hope I didn't miss anybody. It is for everybody actually.

I guess I better get moving. I need to go to the laundromat and the clothes wont go by themselves. Ha Ha...

Take care all...

Hugs, Karen...
