Good Morning Tuesday!
It is sunny and hot here with a high today of 85. We are going over to our church to help set up for the rummage sale on Thursday. Then back here for lunch and a visit with Mom. Yesterday Mom's usual aide wasn't working so things weren't done the way Liz does them. Mom seemed very vague and lost. I think Liz gives her lots of cues and attention so she is more alert. What a wonderful gift people like Liz have to care for and enjoy being with people who have dementia. I know I couldn't do it as well.
Have a nice day! _________________

Good morning! It's 67 heading to 105. I think my coming here has changed the weather, I expected hot after all this is the desert but the air is supposed to be dry. Oh well, it gives me an excuse to stay in the house and get some computer work done. That's the plan for today.
Stay cool and get some rain!!! _________________
DON'T LOOK BACK, YOU'RE NOT GOING THAT WAY!!!!

Carol, I tried to take care of my Mom for 6 months after her stroke. Exhausted, I put her in a nursing home. She got so much more alert, so fast, I felt guilty. My only saving grace is I'd have felt guiltier if I hadn't tried. They had so many things that she could do and so many people to care for her.
Good morning, it is 80 on its way to 90 and I slept late. I'm going to water aerobics and then to the chiropractor. We have our block party tonight for Minneapolis neighborhood night out. I'll have to think of something to bring. I hope you all have a great day. _________________
