|No Matter What You Wish For......You Get Guilt|
October 28, 2017
,Pleasant day, though now it's clouding up and we may get some rain. Or not. You never know.
I did laundry today. Groomed Nougat. Fell asleep watching a cooking show this afternoon, and slept for 2 hours. Not surprised since I didn't sleep that well last night. I didn't fall asleep till after 1 am (went to bed at 12:30). Then i woke up at 3:30 to pee, was awake till after 4, and awake again shortly after 5. Fell asleep at 5:30, and slept till 9. Nougat didn't wake me up......I woke HER up!
Here's something I don't understand. The other day, Mom spoke to Tommy (Ellie's niece's husband). She told him it's too much for her to have to run over there to take care of Ellie. I'm sure she put it very diplomatically, said she "couldn't", not that she didn't want to.
So now, Ellie hasn't asked her to go over. They still talk every day, but no more requests for assistance. Her niece's daughter has been going over, and picking up fast food for Ellie.
So what's the problem?
Mom is convinced Tommy told Ellie that Mom doesn't want to go. He can be a little blunt, and now Mom is upset that Ellie **isn't** asking Mom for help.
Does this fall under "Be careful what you wish for"?, or "Some people are never satisfied"? Or is Mom just feeling guilty? She really has nothing to feel guilty about, not that that will stop her.
It's very cloudy, but no sign of rain. I smell something burning, but can't tell what or from where. If the smell gets any stronger, I'm going to have to go in. I'm listening to "Prairie Home", and Nougat's dozing on the patio.
I see both Hallmark TV channels have started their around-the-clock Christmas movies. Come on......it's not even Halloween yet. I don't mind some of their movies, though some are too saccharine for my taste. They're harmless (and generally mindless).......but there's such a thing as too much of anything. I'm sure I'll watch at least some of the movies......but not in Oct.
And on that note....I'm outta here!! Toodles!
