Life is a rollercoaster!

It’s been a very stressful couple of days. It seems to be that nothing happens for ages and then all at once it starts to crowd in around me. We’re only 3 days into the week, assuming it starts on a Monday and already it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster!

My Mum attended hospital for her check up and they are finally going to try her on Alzheimer’s tablets and refer her to a Dementia Care Team. Although the tablets will not stop whatever is going on, there is a chance it might help her get back a little time. I think my poor Sister wanted to give the Doctor a good slap when she heard he had mentioned the note she put in regarding Mums symptoms, despite the fact that she had put in capital letters a request that he didn’t do so.

The great clean up still continues for the impending visit from the relatives. It’s a little bit daunting when I look into rooms and see that some have got worse rather than better, but I just have to plod on and hope that it all comes good in the end.

On top of that there is paperwork to be done for Dad and others and yesterday I was told that I have to start to shadow the lady who currently does the job I have been ear marked for.

Today I am having brain overload. I want to sidle into a corner and hide until everything has been taken care of. Imagine being able to go to sleep and wake up the next morning knowing everything you need to know without having to go through a learning process. If only!

We’ve also been having some freaky weather of late. Bearing in mind it is almost the start of the summer, the giant hailstones that rained down on us last night were a bit of a shock. My Dad and I were imprisoned in the car for a good 10 minutes while the rain, hailstones, thunder and lightening raged around us. Then it stopped and the sun came out like nothing had happened.

Well that resounding thumping on the door serves to prove that lunchtime is officially over and it’s time to get back to work. But hopefully that little vent has done me the world of good and no one else will loose their heads this afternoon.

Happy Hump Day Eejits, I think I am qualified to say that now that I actually know what it means.

  1. I can certainly sympathize with you, it’s been a heck of a week here at the hillbilly household too, Lil hillbilly and me both still have the stomach bug and mom just ain’t doin’ good at all. Chin up girl, it’s BOUND to get better :)


  2. Goodness, don’t you just love it when things keep piling up on your shoulders and you can’t imagine how you can take ONE MORE STEP and then something EVEN BIGGER comes on? OMG. I hope you are keeping it all in perspective and realizing that good enough is good enough, you know?


    • I was thinking that myself today when I walked into another room that looks like it has gone 10 rounds with a bundle of semtex. I’m now erring along the lines of putting a chest of drawers in front of the door and telling the relatives that’s where I keep the dead bodies lol


      • Hah! That would solve two problems…then no one would visit and you wouldn’t have to entertain or clean!


Entertain the Eejit!
