my last errand this morning
was a stop at the farm market for fresh berries
I took them to the facility
to share with mom and her table mates
as well as staff
ours was at least as delicious as the one shown
since we had ice cream instead of whipped cream
mom loves it
scooping up extra berries
Ann and Marge ~ her tablemates
were tickled to be included
( I share desserts from home...not the "real food" though)
this is exactly the look we get daily
when Mom insists on finding a ride home
no matter who is with her
"let me get my purse and we'll go"
now with dementia there is no reasoning with her
right now nothing distracts her...
very frustrating for all involved
even if she has a nap
she wakes up and starts again
Then in the morning when I talk to her
says she's ashamed of her behavior
I always say it's okay to be mad
when you don't get your way
wasn't I a big baby all the time too?
at least she laughs about it in the morning
the tile man has been and done a lot today
should be finished on Sunday
the cats are not thrilled with time spent in jail
it's going to be tough rounding them up
the next few days...
