“To Be Remembered”

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 →

The reason I’m a caregiver

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 →

His hair is blond! No, grey!

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 →

Client arguments continued

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 →

Caregiving PSA (part 1)

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 →

Client rants (part 1)

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 →

Client arguments (part 2)

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 

Client arguments (part 1)

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 →

I have the fun ability to mess up my words when I speak, on a regular bases. It usually ends with confusion and laughter.  But occasionally other people do it. And they blame me for being in my vicinity.  This was my client last night. June 21, 2017 -Facebook memories  Such misunderstanding and hilarity! My... Continue Reading →
