Well, today Dad went back to work so that he didn’t lose his job or get anymore write ups. That left Mom with her hands full as I worked to get all the chores done between the two places before I had to start the evening chores!
It is sad to say that my Dad’s Dad isn’t just forgetful. As the days wear on they are turning very long. Mom tries really hard not to have to raise her voice to him but this morning was horrible. My Dad’s Dad broke down crying and giving my Mom a fit. He wanted the preacher and wasn’t taking no for an answer. Mom did put him off until 8:30am and his preacher was really nice and did understand.
As for Mom it was rough. She had to do everything from feed to bath him. Getting him to take his medications and to drink enough water all the while making him get up from time to time to move around No one thing was an easy task and most Mom handled with as much Grace as one woman can take. Most things take two of us and I help when I can while trying to get chores done.
I will say that tomorrow Mom and I will get a break as she is taking me to a roping but Monday can’t come to soon when my Aunt returns.
