HOW MUCH IS THIS GOING TO COST?!

Just kidding.
No, wait, I'm not. 

It's official. Mom needs to move to the...(dundundun)..."memory care unit", a.k.a., the locked building, the Alzheimer's section.
Over $1000 more a month than she's paying now.
She could stay where she is - except with a 24 hour sitter that makes where she is now WAY more expensive. 53 hours x $17 an hour is $901 - for just over two days.

 Tuesday's the big day. Haven't told her yet. Been staying away, mostly because I have a cold and partly because it sucks. She has an inkling I think.
Why, why did she have to go for a walk?! She doesn't even like to walk.

Oh man.
Called TROSA - the easy part, they're on the ball.
Called Time Warner cable - who keep hanging up on me because they know how much I enjoy being on the phone with them. I still have to call them more. arrggghhhh.
Then pack her up (for the third, fourth time?) and let the schlepping begin!

I didn't go on the interview in Raleigh. Part time, $10 an hour. Not worth it. 3-8 PM which is not bad, if it was around here. I don't see so well at night anymore so I-40 at night would not be fun.

Anyway, I plan on making this weekend fun. "Megamind", book club, and Prosecco. Yea.

  1. When I have to go to the VA hospital for whatever reason and it gets late the streets are so busy and I do not like driving at night either especially when it is so thick with vehicles. I do hope you find lots of joy in this weekend.

  2. Hi Kim, I linked over here through Go Ask Alice and am glad to have discovered your blog. The aging (and ailing) parent issue is such a difficult one. I wish you well on this journey. And yes, Prosecco is a very good idea.
