Sorry for my absence..

I’m sorry that i haven’t been podcasting the last couple of weeks..

as the daytime caregiver for my mother with frontal temporal dementia, you have to take it one day at a time with anything..  and sometimes my podcasting gets put on hold..

my baby sister who lives in Florida came out for a week long visit, i had to drop everything and work at cleaning up my Mom’s room for Liz to stay in, it was an all day project just picking up stuff that Mom had hidden around and under the bed and vacuuming under and around the bed, which hadn’t been done in months..  Mom is a hoarder and likes to have her room crowded with items that normally get thrown in the trash or put away in a closet somewhere and she used to hide food in her bed..  Dad just couldn’t do this on his own, so i had to help..  Amazingly enough Mom didn’t get mad when we were cleaning up her room a bit, she just watched..  so that took up all my time that i couldn’t make it to podcast.   Then the next Thursday was the last day Liz was here so we were all chatting about what to do for the last day before she flew back to Florida..  it was an all afternoon event of Liz driving around town stopping at various stores and we had brought home pizza for the family and then later went for some frozen yogurt…  Of course, Mom would glare at me and my other sister for intruding, so we would go to our house..

Life sometimes just gets in the way of podcasting and i can’t make promises of doing better, i’m pretty much a slave to my Mom’s dementia and that’s how it is until she’s done…  but i will still try..
