I'm so sorry you are having so much trouble with your mom and are not getting any help. If you can't vent to us, then who can you complain to? I'm afraid it would be/will be just like that for me too.
Thanks

Does she maybe need her meds tweaked a bit? That seems to happen to people like your mom and my dad. They go along just fine for a bit and then they get grumpy and argumentative and will fight anybody that gets in their way. Once they adjust the meds, it usually makes my dad settle down again.

We had a fairly nice day here too. The snow is slowly melting and the temps are supposed to get nicer for the weekend
Nope ..No meds to tweak..Its her dementia getting worse Im afraid.. Other then her mind, shes healthy...except she 89...
It is suppose to be nice the next couple of days here too..
and tomorrow I get to ride again..its been since before christmas since Ive ridden..Looking forward to it.

Off to get things together for my meeting...

Enjoy the good weather

They don't have her on any meds for her dementia? I'm kind of surprised about that.

I hope you are having a good ride today. We've got windy and rainy conditions today but it is fairly warm, 45 right now. So a lot of our snow has melted away

A bunch of years ago, she was on something, but the side effects were so bad and she didn't show improvement. So they discontinued it.

Our snow is melting too...
Nice and warm today...43 degrees already..

Going shopping today...

Enjoy your day

I've never posted in this thread, but please don't kick me out.

Have they tried Seroquel? It has helped my FIL have at least some good days.

We are pretty much snowless at the moment. There are some small piles that used to be large piles . Our yard is quite snow free and that is just that way that I like it!

It is nice and sunny today but quite windy and chilly.

Nothing real exciting going on here. Just counting down the days

Busy days... here trying to get my mom settled...looks like my mom's lake prop. is going up for sale...anyone interested in a lakefront vacation spot in Pa.?
I'm very sad to be having to sell, but I knew it was inevitable... Just happened faster then expected..

Robin, Not much longer now...LUCKY girl!

Have a good day ladies

Your mom is still not settled yet Betsy? I hope she settles in soon and starts to enjoy living in her new home.

What kind of property does she own? Is it a year round type of house, a more rustic cottage sort of place? What's the lake like? Enquiring minds want to know

Sorry to hear that your snow has returned. I'm just hoping that our weather will stay semi good until I leave to go away next week. I don't want anything to get in between me and Mickey

Oh SHE is settled in ..just trying to get the business part settled.

The prop. is a summer cottage, on about .88 acres... Its a great lake..not real big , but not too small... they use power boats on it for tubing and water skiing, but the horsepower is limited..and to tell the truth If I could water ski, I don't think Id use it for that as you are almost always making a turn.
The cottage is in rough shape and needs major work to get it livable, there is also a barn(outbuilding), but that's in worse shape.
We need to get a Realtor down there to assess it, so I don't know what the asking price would be either... If you are interested...I'll send you the listing when we get it on the market...which will have to be ASAP

I hope your weather is ok til you leave..and you have a great time at the world!

Mikes home today, because he has to work from around 8PM -5AM to get some medical records computer program up and running at the hospital. It has to be done when they arent being used much. Thats in the middle of the night.

Well, I will be lurking...Have a good day

TTFN

My Mike also does IT/IS work at a hospital so I definitely understand the sometimes they work through the night thing!

A house on a lake sounds lovely, but no disposible cash here!

Hope things get settled on your mom's stuff, so things can be a bit easier for you!

Robin~ you're getting close!

Betsy, I'd love to see the listing when you get it done. Don't think I would be buying a house in PA but I like to look at that stuff. We could always move our 5th wheel there and set up and come down for weekends

Weather is still looking okay. Only 5 more sleeps or 5 more dinners to cook (whichever way you want to look at it ) We are spending one night in Detroit near the airport and then flying out the next morning.

That's interesting Betsy and Mary Lou, Rick spends a lot of time on a computer at work too but he doesn't work in a hospital. He spends most of his time programming machines so they will do the work that needs to get done. He rarely has to work overnight though. I won't say that he hasn't in the past but not these days.

Our shop is so slow right now. There is nothing for the guys to do. We had to lay off one guy and are struggling to keep the other 2 busy. We're hoping things will turn around again soon. Just need to hang on til then.

I have no big plans for today. Whatever you decide to do today, have a good one.

our snow is all gone this morning too. We had a lot of rain yesterday and probably some more to come today.

The trip was great. I heard and saw nothing about the new fastpass plus. Also did not notice anyone wearing any special wrist bracelets and I did keep watch for them.

The weather was good for the most part but you had to go out in the morning with a jacket and you needed that jacket again when the sun went down. In the middle of the day it was glorious though.

The parks seemed to be really busy, at least the walkways were, you had to dodge people all the time just to get to places. The attractions wait times though were not all that bad, it seemed. We managed to ride everything we wanted without any major wait times.

We did a lot of the obscure things that I don't normally do, for example, the steamboat, Country Bear Jamboree, Tiki Birds, the tea cups, the carousel.... and those sorts of things. It was nice for a change.

The new Fantasyland looks like it will be neat when it is finished. There is still a lot of construction going on. We did go on the new Little Mermaid ride (twice) and enjoyed it but I love the music from that movie.
