I barely made it halfway through Walmart before the fatigue set in and I wasn't completely sure that I could finish my shopping. Groceries didn't seem all that important all of a sudden. Sitting down in my recliner sounded good.
Can you say....Pajama pants? Quilt? Hot cocoa?
Of course, while I was gone someone bought a set of these Fat Lil Redbirds, a set of Fat Lil Crows and three Belted Pigs.
Today my mom was a bit fixated on the heater in her room. She was cold so she turned the electric wall heater on. As soon as it warmed up a bit, she was hot. She turned it off. Each time it was on, she wanted to leave her door open. You cannot heat the entire house with one wall heater. You will burn the heater out. You MUST leave the door shut to that room while the heater is on. She argues about it with me.
Today she wanted cranberry juice. I had apple, grape and Gatorade. When she found out I was headed to the grocery store, she went and made a list.
She doesn't actually eat much and certainly cannot eat that much ice cream.
Oh well. It's not worth arguing over. I'm learning this. I'm actually learning a lot. About myself.
I'm back home again after buying TWO kinds of ice cream and a bag of store-bought cookies. She's closed her door and gone to bed, so I now have a couple of hours to myself before I go to bed. And then it will begin again tomorrow. And I will learn more. About myself.
