Taylor Swift writes songs about her life and is a multi-millionaire. I write blog posts about my life and . . . well, you can finish that sentence for me. LOL Oh-the-irony-of-it.
I did something today that I have never done before - yes, a NEW "life experience". I don't think even Miss Swift could write a song about this. Let me first say that my little escapade might qualify me as a criminal - I'm not really sure about this. I guess I would need to throw myself at the mercy of the court and plead "desperation" if that should be the case.
Those of you who visit me regularly know that my Mom has been living with us for about 6 weeks now. She has dementia, and though she does "pretty well", some days are just plain rough. Today was one of those days. Mom woke up in a crabby mood. (we had a great day yesterday and she had gone to bed the night before quite content - go figure.) The long and short of this being that this morning Mom told me she was not going to take her medication any more. That was it. She didn't need it and she wasn't going to take it. *sigh* Mom takes a couple of meds for her heart and some strong mind-bending (my word) meds that are working to keep her dementia in check, these enable her to function at her very best. Not taking them is NOT an option. Without the meds she would probably take a downward spiral, not to mention possible withdrawal symptoms. What to do? She is way too savvy to simply mix her meds into applesauce and the like. So . . .
I got out my small coffee bean grinder and ground up todays meds. Then I concocted a Jello/strawberry/Cool Whip dessert and laced hers with the finely ground up meds. I can't even begin to imagine what all those meds must taste like, but she ate it!
The "Jello Caper" was a success - put that in a song, Miss Swift.
Perhaps "Peanut Butter Surprise".
I'm praying she wakes up in a cordial, easy-going mood and takes her meds with a happy heart.tomorrow.
