(Hums to self "Oh Canada...") We were a few years ago, thinking of doing the "train" across Canada, but that's out now. Ah well, one day at a time. Susi is a saint, know where she's at, with two children who were disabled myself. Caregiving forever is a hard old path. Sometimes one gets a little selfish. Was so looking forward to a little time for something else. But it's back to the grindstone. (Grabs blankie, stuffie, and crawls into corner.)

susi, I ***love*** that Bombeck piece--thank you for posting it! She has (had? is she still with us?) such a rare gift for storytelling and in that brief piece, she just shines. And so do all the Moms of special needs kids, too.

This AM I went to iTunes and got the "DaVinci Code" movie soundtrack and it's some of the most beautiful classical music I've ever heard. Wish I could share it with all of you! I'll listen to it as I work today and perhaps it will rescue the small painting that I started last night in painting class and really screwed up

i used to have a book by her, (she's passed) about the different kinds of mothers. one thing that always stayed in my mind was her idea that down's syndrome children were in fact angels sent here to teach us love.

Erma left us all April 1996.

Her books saved my life, when I was a harried housewife. Her humor was so "on." Miss her terribly.

Thanks for reminding us of her wisdom, Susi.

Brig..Hugs ..for wtnss.to abduction post.

Pat..I'll be buying the soundtrack once it's
released Thanks.

Lab,Susi..you are both(from what I read)
in Erma's piece The chosen ones .You both
have this incredable spirit of life on
the bright side ( as far as I see your personalities )

You are both Caregivers because you
still do it in here from spime to time.

I remember a book by her ..
perhaps because it became a movie??
The grass is always greener over the
Septic Tank..I read the book and she
was certainly ahead of her time..Laugh
out Load is what I did..
But I know she wrote pieces like this
one and she was special..

Lab you finished Congrats..Tell me if
you got a mention..I'm now on 14 so only
14 more..I really only have the incentive
on the week-ends .Can't get into it after
work..I look forward to it Off and ON the
whole week-end..I like that it has a
time frame.I never use any other games
as such that are there forever type thing.

Sal..Your Today Special in a bag got to run.
(so glad Sal's not into styrofoam containers)

Sal..I love your screen door..
It has the springs that close
behind you and that little metal roller thing
that snaps the door closed..
That door only swung one way.Inside you
pushed it open and Outside you pulled it open.
Narrow minded door but great memories :-)

Being a caregiver for my mom meant wearing many hats.
chauffeur, chef, janitor, interior designer, accountant, auto mechanic, social director, medicine man, raconteur, and later, an arm to assist 24/7, until her passing 2 years ago.
I can say that this may have been the best thing I will ever do ...enabling her to stay in the home she loved. And even though anyone who accepts this challenge themselves may feel overwhelmed at times, it's well worth it.
After all, who took care of you when you were little?
Eh?
...sometimes I feel certain that this was part of the agreement in my being here. It's an everybody wins situation.

Enough of that.

Mark, I'm so glad you wrote that. I have many mixed reasons for being here and helping my Dad (as much as he'll allow), but that truly hits it to the core.

"I can say that this may have been the best thing I will ever do ...enabling her to stay in the home she loved. And even though anyone who accepts this challenge themselves may feel overwhelmed at times, it's well worth it.

I only wish he'd have allowed me to help him care for my mother as well.

My parents didn't really want their children when they came along (my brother and I) I still took care of them, an autistic son, an epileptic daughter and now my husband. Burn-out isn't an option. We trudge on.

Thank heaven for Sal's, the place with the bottomless pots of coffee/coke/tea etc. etc. And the "horn-o-plenty" food. Valhalla lives!!

Thanks...but,
it's no big deal. Not extraordinary at all... think alpha wolf ethics here:
survival of the pack, all the time, no matter what.

Love may be the basis, but a certain ruthless persistance is indispensible when that is what's needed to get the job done.
It was my pleasure.

i was thinking the same, Mark. when loved ones are in need we do what we can to help. it's our nature. and you're right, that it is a very meaningful sacrifice which winds up returning more than we give, at least on the level of spirit.

LAB, i agree with you, but at the same time, burnout can happen. i have hit the wall with chronic issues more than once. the lesson for me was that *if* burnout is not an option, best find ways to nurture myself through all the caretaking. i guess it works differently for different people. personality no doubt plays a role, and maybe also the question of how much caretaking is part of one's "normal" routine. for me, that's a generous helping on a good day, so if i have emergency caretaking duties as well, it can be a challenge. but when i decide to just ignore my own needs, i pay for it in the long run.

speaking of which, time for my workout. just as soon as i down this espresso...

I could swear I heard Banjo Music as I
"drove up" .
I admire and respect you all.
My mother passed away 2 years ago
while under the throws of full Blown
Alzheimers.
I live away so it was my siblings who
bore the greatest load.Even after she
was admitted for round the clock care
my sisters were there for all her baths
(she would have HATED Anyone bathing her)
and her meals.They tucked her into bed every night up until the end.4 years..

Well my big brother is in town this week-end
and I'm invited on Saturday to stay at the Swankiest Hotel this side of Lake Louise..

Oh how I want to soak up the opulence. :-)
Sal I'll be back Sunday for a Hang over Fix.


Lab I ordered "the magdalene cipher" perfect
timing too.I couldn't get it any cheaper
under $12.00 shipping from Flordia..
I got a used one..

Margueritas--*YES!*

I want to read that book too, L. A. B., but I won't have a life again until June. As it is, the last 3 books I've bought are sitting collecting dust

I'm so depressed today that I'm pulling out the Big Guns--a Harry Potter movie--just got "Chamber of Secrets" last week on sale. That's guaranteed to cheer me up--anyone else who wants to watch also gets a large cat draped across their lap for no extra charge (otherwise, all three will be trying to occupy me at once)

This is a difficult weekend for me. My Mom passed in 1982, and my Grandma in 1984. I miss them both ever so much. Mom was my best friend, always, even though I had "best friend girlfriends". I can't go to the cemetery to visit the graves there: Mom, Nannie [grandma] and Memmaw [great-grandmother]. I cry and cry and cry. When will this grieving ever end?

I'm just glad my son won't grieve so much for me. It isn't his nature. He still misses Mom and Nannie, but he no longer grieves.

Happy Mother's Day to all, and especially to those who've lost their Moms already - whether or not you have kids of your own. Blessings for all.

May I have a platter of roast beef with mashed potatoes & gravy, with early peas and fried okra? And a big glass of strong iced tea. For dessert, I'll have, please, a huge slice of raspberry cheesecake. Remember, there are no calories or fats in foods here at Sal's. It's virtual food. Patricia told me that. yum yum.

Waxy, that's a beautiful, beautiful angel! I began a series of pencil drawings of archangels many years ago, but never finished it. The names were so evocative....Wonder what ever became of the drawings??

susi, I've only watched a couple of comedy movies in my *life*--for some reason, I never feel like going to one and neither does The Skeptic. But seeing a drama-type movie always pushes my emotional 'reset button' and I feel better afterwards, so I watched "Chamber of Secrets" before going to bed last night and it really helped.

It's a hard weekend for me, too--had serious problems with my mother and so many unresolved feelings about her when she died that even now, a couple of years after her death, I'm still very conflicted about her. And when you combine that with having lost my only son and no Mother's Day cards or flowers most years, it makes for a sad weekend.

Some years, The Skeptic remembers to give me a card "from the kitties" and a small bouquet, but not every year. And this year he's away rafting, so....But the lovely woman who owns the Curves that I go to bought a huge bouquet of pink roses and gave one to each of us, Moms or not, as we left, yesterday. So I have it in a bud vase beside the computer and I smile each time I see it

I think I'd like a fancy brunch buffet tomorrow...any chance we could talk Sal into laying on a nice one, complete with ice sculpture and Mimosas??

Actually, it was completed after May 11. (Didn't know this??!!) I finished the 24 puzzles. They will notify me tomorrow if I get to "play on" for the finale or not (more than likely not.)

Happy Day After Mother's Day. Back to the old grind. Ugga.

Ms Davis, after your show, can you post some of your paintings to share with us?

Going back to bed now. Spent yesterday consoling friends who could not be with their kids. Man, it wore me out. I had planned on a day of sleep & it didn't work out. Celebrated Mom's Day on Saturday with son & his wife. The Master doesn't celebrate Mom's Day. Grrr!

Nighty nite. *pulls blanket over head and begins to snore gently*

Blessing and meditations for your friend's son. Are they trying to get rid of the Mercury poisoning, or is he too ill to do that procedure which is so dangerous?

You were wondering where he might have gotten the mercury poisoning? If they lived in an old house, the plumbing might contain both mercury and lead fittings that were saudered together with those materials.

And I'm happy to report that The Skeptic did not, after all, forget Mother's Day and slipped a card from our 3 cats under my studio door late last night when he got home from rafting. And even nicer, Sheila Na Gig created and sent me a link to a wonderful card for those of us whose children are on the Other Side. So my Mother's Day ended much more happily than I expected it to

And I'll be off now to browse the left-overs from yesterday's brunch....

Well, I think I get to play the "Final Challenge" (it's still a bit unclear, but it let me in and I read the rules, the last part doesn't start until 19th of May.) So maybe.

One caramel macciatto latte please.

Thanks Buddie, just wasn't sure, no e-mail was sent, just the little "love" note at the bottom of the game that accessed the next "instruction." So maybe I get to play?? It will be five puzzles (argh!!) that have to be completed in two days. The winner is the one who does each one in the shortest time.
Which means, food must be put where I am, water too, (wondering about bathroom breaks.

If I don't get the "official" notice, wonder if I still get to play?? Friday will tell the tale.
