Hello everyone! I have decided on another blog to keep some of my memories as a caregiver in one place. Welcome to Adventures in Caregiving at caregivinghumor.wordpress.com!
August 19, 2015 --Facebook memories My client was watching the news (big surprise) when they were talking about the historic success of the first female Rangers. After saying "You go girls!" She promptly said, "I could have done that. I've beaten an angry bull to the fence an acre away!"
April 15, 2016 -- Facebook Staus Today was flower day. I took my client, who is just a couple of short months away from being 100, out to the two cemeteries where her family resides. Like always, it was errand day, where we were out and about getting groceries and other needed items. I had... Continue Reading →
Last night had the "You'll-find-the-right-man- soon" talk with my client again. I got her laughing when I told her that she failed me as a client. She was supposed to have a single hardworking grandson that was at maximum 8 years older than me. Not a married 45ish with 2 teens. She was still giggling... Continue Reading →
July 22, 2017- Facebook memories Watching America's Got Talent reruns last night with my client and suddenly found myself in an argument over "Donald Trump's" hair color. Her: "That is the ugliest grey hair I've ever seen! Even his eyebrows are grey!" Me: "Who?" Her: "That guy on stage. Get some hair color buddy!" Me:... Continue Reading →
July 6, 2016- Facebook Memories Vindication!! Somehow my client & I got to talking about unclean vs clean food again (I know! I should have known better). Me: "Pig is unclean, that's why Jewish people don't call it kosher." Her: "I never read anywhere in the Bible where it said pork was unclean, it has... Continue Reading →
May 25, 2016 -- Facebook Memories When your client obsessively smooths out every little wrinkle in the bottom sheet before sitting down on her bed: Wrinkle Release is your friend! When the other caregiver gives up trying to smooth the wrinkles out of the fitted sheet fresh from the dryer before putting it the linen... Continue Reading →
May 19, 2016 -- Facebook Memories It's rather humorous listening to my client rant about taxes and politics. And let me tell you there is a lot to rant about. On taxes: "That's why we came here! Them Englanders were adding so many taxes they were killing us! They forgot why we escaped." (The way... Continue Reading →
May 28, 2016 -- Facebook Memories Got into another disagreement with my client yesterday. I made the mistake of saying that Frankenstein was the doctor, not the monster. I guess I never read the book. She won that argument. #howdoifindmyselfinthesearguments #adventuresincaregiving #haveYOUreadthebook #youtellhersheswrong #butitssowrongithurts #sarcasm
May 20, 2016 ---Facebook memories I inexplicably found myself engaged in an cultural/Bible argument with my client last night & couldn't seem to find my way out of it. Everything I said just made her more mad. All the while her daughter was laughing at me. And the daughter started it by talking about her... Continue Reading →
