You all told me to be sure and get in front of her on the stairs, which I do, but you did NOT tell me that while she was SUPPOSED to be in her chair in the living room watching endless MASH episodes, that she would go into the kitchen -- pull a bar stool up to the window -- climb up on it and onto the sink -- and try to pull down the kitchen shade above the sink!
I felt horrible, of course, like I had left my baby in a hot car.
She really has a thing about closing the blinds at night. She had shades in all the windows of her house, and she pulled them all down every night before dark. She can't remember that she isn't supposed to do that here. I have told her a hundred times not to touch the blinds, but she can't remember -- of course. The only thing that will look in the windows here may be a raccoon or a deer. We do close the blinds in the bedrooms, however.
Then there is the constant remote control battle. It is kind of funny.
After turning on the TV, I always HIDE the two remotes under a pillow or a quilt or in another room because Mom just messes everything up when she gets them. Awhile ago, I put them under a quilt on the couch. When I came back downstairs to unhide the controls, they were GONE! I looked around. Mom had put them on the coffee table underneath a napkin. I had to laugh.
Went to my Mother's house for about the sixth time yesterday. One of my sisters and her husband joined us. They were very helpful, and it was a delight to have them there. Praise God for that!!!
Still so much to do there. We shall continue to continue until all is done.
Mom is doing really good except for her mind. She is sleeping at night instead of in the daytime, and she feels good. Nothing hurts. We took her off the nasty pills that made her much worse. Jerry has surgery on his knee on Monday. Never a dull moment.
Time to fix supper.
Be back soon.
