18 hour countdown

Until I leave this place. I don’t know that I’ll be back. I’m happy to be going back to my own home, my kidlets who I try not to think about when I’m gone from them, and my busy life.

To summize. Older folks are difficult. Let’s see:

When I can’t hear her: she yells at me.

When she can’t hear me: she yells at me.

When she gets something wrong (like the time of an event): she yells at me (because of course it was my error not hers).

If she doesn’t get what she wants: she reverts to a tantrum the scale of a toddlers, only with a lot more yelling.

And she complains incessantly. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

I love this woman. Thankfully, because otherwise this whole thing would have been sheer misery and not just a bit depressing.

As soon as we get back from our outing today I have to walk 10 blocks to CVS to get her Drano, water and paper towels. She refuses to let the maintenance men into her apartment so I have to take care of the slow kitchen sink before I leave.

I don’t feel like I accomplished much here, as far as helping her long term situation. I cleaned. I got her diatamaceous earth for the fleas she doesn’t have, but roaches she probably has. I bought her a fan and replaced some things that were moldy and old: like her bathmat and showerhead. Hopefully it will make it worthwhile for her, because I can’t tell if she has liked having me here or not with all the yelling. Lol

I jest…..of course.

But I also need to sleep a bit before the shuttle gets me at 4am. I may be too excited to sleep. I hate flying but I think I’ll enjoy this one.

I might even clap as we land. πŸ˜‰β£οΈ

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

    1. No none. It’s funny how headed to New York has been a loud flight both times and yet coming into Portland is always a very calm experience. I’m just happy to be home. I still don’t like flying or the travel itself much.

  1. As one of those older folks myself, yeah, we can be difficult and some of us aren’t fans of having people fussing over – or with – us even though we do “secretly” appreciate the love and attention. Even my lady is getting into older folks mode: She’ll raise hell when we need to get maintenance in for something, then raises more hell when they show up; if they make a little mess, more hell raising and if they don’t clean it up to her standards, ditto.

    Yeah… we can be real pains in the ass.

      1. Even in my older age, I’m easy to get along with; you wanna come help me with something? Come on! Because since this is a truism, I’m not trying to be like, say, my 84 year old mom who tends to make me insane when trying to help her with something.
