Saturday Update ~ 1/22/22

Okay folks. I wanted to comment and like on all the #JusJoJan and #SoCS entries but my iPad WP app changed and that functionality is missing. It was forcing me to download posts. Same for my iPhone. Weird. I had to wait to get back here on my desktop. I hope this is not a sign of things to come as I like moving around and the apps allow me to do that. Never know when an urgent thought bubble must be released. Yes! Blogging it as important as brain surgery said no one ever.

Next, my kids are making me proud. Pride is a venial sin making my mama roll over in her grave. I won’t go into detail since I really dislike the posts of my kid is better than all other kids on the planet mentality going around faux book aka FB. Suffice it to say they are kind-hearted, non judgmental and that means the world to me. They are blessings with all the things and believe me we’ve got THINGS!

MoMo is off the bad drug which made her hallucinate which is good but with this new cognitive ability, she now refuses assisted living. Things were all set up for Monday but she is insisting that we pull the plug (not literally mind you). Only a doctor’s order against her competency would change things. She is demanding to change doctors!!!

See I told ya, lots of things … The care director said let’s ride it out as she changed her mind 3 times in 2 hours. Maybe she will change her mind back again before Monday. Regardless the room is hers through end of February. They will admit Mondays to Thursdays before 1 pm. She needs assistance, almost the medical max for assisted living because if she needed any additional help, it’d be a nursing home instead. She is depressed and scared and it is hard to be upset with her. But even when she was in good health, she’s wasn’t an easy person to get along with.

Dark humor is called for and we joke that maybe B or I could take her place. The room is paid for after all. Who doesn’t want a month plus of being doted on? They had me at high speed internet, wifi, and 24/7 snacks. We asked PoPo on the side if he wanted to go instead. Of course he said no. She has him wrapped around her little finger. They’ll be married 59 years in April. And more dark tongue in cheek … if they make it that long.

You see, B hit a mental wall breaking down saying what gets him the most is she going to put his dad in an early grave. Oh man. I tell ya what. Life is not for the faint of heart.

Off to catch up on reading WP. That’s self care for myself. Selfish but oh well.

As always, more to come.

#SoCS and #JusJoJan ~ 1/22/22

Top-o-the morning fine folks of bloglandia. Let’s get this #SoCS/#JusJoJan combo party started shall we? I hear there’ll be birthday cake!! Linda writes and I copy paste Your prompt for #JusJoJan and my very first birthday-Stream-of-Consciousness-Saturday is: “icing on the cake.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “icing on the cake.” Enjoy!

Hmm, icing on the cake. Think, think, and think … is that like a cherry on top of the whipped cream on top of a hot fudge sundae? Anyone else triggered by this spelling of sundae? Nope. Just me? Move along little doggy.

Icing on the cake is extra special but and it’s a big but, some people don’t like icing. They want only cake or vice versa. And Yes! When baking a cake, I do lick the beaters and I will eat any leftover frosting. Oh my, now we can have the is icing different from frosting? convo cuz ya know icing is better or maybe frosting is better? Personal preference. To not delay the answer, icing is thin powdered sugar and milk while frosting is thick with powdered sugar and butter. Mhmm butter makes everything better. Frosting for the win!!! Don’t believe me? Google it. I’ve no time as I streaming. She was red hot. I mean, she was steaming. Thin Lizzy is back in town with the boys …

Whew! I’m tired. Back to bed for moi.

As always more to come.
