Be happy that she appears to be happy.
My dad can be fairly decent the first part of the day then he goes blank and or gets mean and nasty...won't take his meds and can't be reasoned with.
He's still determined to find a job which is fine and keeps him busy. But then he'll want one of us to call the employer on his behalf.
Few weeks ago he asked me to gather price info for getting a motor scooter so he can't get around town better... He didn't understand the part when I said that as soon as he can't start finding the toilet in his room by himself then we'd talk about a scooter.
So just agree with your MIL when you can and let her do her thing.
Thanks Steve for the advice. Sorry your dad is so difficult at times. I do remember when my dad would do things that were dangerous before he got worse and couldn't speak or eat. He was upset because he thought the newspaper carrier was charging him too much. He called the newspaper office and was very ugly to them. I had to call them and explain. He was being charged for two separate newspapers from two separate companies. He was upset with his son and grandson that was living in the house and many times I had to go over there and try to "reason" with him.
