Don't bother telling the pharmacy you have found the missing pills save them for emergency times tonyFriday evening, I was sorting meds, only to find Mum had run out of one of the tablets, she has two that are not in the blister pack
Monday had me trying to convince the pharmacy to order the “missing” box. Yes I know you send them together. Yes I’ve searched the house. No Mum does not know where they are (she’s got Alzheimers you silly peeps). I might have convinced them to put the other 2 into the blister pack .... time will tell
So last night, while clearing empty boxes, I found the offending “missing” ones. Don’t ask. She’d taken the 4 strips out of one box & put them into an empty box for the “other” tablets. No wonder I couldn’t find them.
Classic Mum tidying up. Never mind that things are in the wrong box, CD’s in wrong cases, last weeks paper kept with this weeks thrown out etc. Can’t imagine why I didn’t think to open all the boxes.
Now the pharmacy want me to take back the spare tablets.
Im painting a room today. Or that’s the plan lol. It gets me out the house & we chat about our mums Still, it’s better than being moaned at all day
Giving in for a quiet life is all too easy, unfortunately it still doesn’t work. But I had to step away before I could see that. Mum isn’t happy if I’m here all day (getting under her feet !!! - even though she’s asleep), if I go out for an hour (gone all day), so I’m opting for an hour or two a day out. She’s still not happy, but I get a break
Unhappy when your there, unhappy when your not, you may as well go for the latter and enjoy some time out.
I helped out eldest today, it took way longer than I expected, but I got my shop done while I was at it. I was in & out all afternoon, made her milkshake, did the washing etc. When I finally got to stop, she told me (little girl voice) I’ve not eaten all day... it’s stinking hot, there was no soup so she had nothing she could eat. Hmmmm. What’s wrong with the fresh loaf of bread, the pack of ham, the cheese slices, etc. No, she made a big show of opening the bread I was throwing out, that had leftovers in the bag ready to go in the bin. Honestly I could have screamed. How I managed to take the rubbish gently from her, while placing a fresh loaf by her I will never know
Tantrum just averted
