I'm utterly disgusted by something I heard last week.

Jim took mom's desk out of her house without asking, Bernie noticed it was missing.  Bernie told mom it was missing and was very upset that Jim would take it without asking.  When mom asked him about it, he said that Josh took the dresser.  And guess what?  She believes Jim.

Jim also left a note stating that the new Ablify that the doctor put mom on to work with her Paroextine - that it would cause her a stroke and it was for biopolar people!  I spoke with the nurse and she asked who she keeps getting this information from.  I told her my uneducated, unemployed, drugged up brother!  She said she would talk to mom.

Last week mom had a 3 hour appointment with the folks from the council of aging, they are looking over her assets to see if she would qualify for Medicaid.  Since her assets are over $2,000 - they suggested putting her excessive into prepaid burial.  I don't agree. 

I'm so sad...I'm sad that it feels like I'm alone where the care of my mother is concerned.  I keep hearing folks will help, will do this - will do that.  But I don't see anything.
I need to focus on what I'm doing and fracking forget what everyone else is not doing..but how can I do that?

I am so tired..I just want to sleep for a week!

Like wake me up when this is over.

Being Positive is what helps me the most.....

When you grow up around negavity as a child -- it seems normal.  The critical comments - you get used too.
Well, then you venture out and interact with the world and realize that is not the only way to live

Tuesday, June 22, 2010 - DO NOT BUY FROM WEB SITE! is a scam website!  I purchased (or so I thought) two magazines and never received them.  I googled deltamagazines and found out the website is a scam site.  You think you are purchasing magazines but you are not - you are being scammed out of your money!
Here is a link to how I discovered the scam

Hope I save everybody the heart ache and most of all your money!

Working with Dad this summer

Garven is working with his Dad this summer.  Since Daren owns his own business - he is able to watch our son and we are able to save on the huge cost of daycare.  It's so nice NOT worrying about Garven during the day, just knowing he's with Daren is a relief. 

They enjoy all the things that boys enjoy...
  • Playing pranks on each other
  • Hanging signs on the back of each other's vehicles
  • You know all that boy stuff (LOL)
Side Note:  I'm still figuring out this blogging stuff.  When I started this blog it was intended to be my therapy in caring for my mom.  But since, I realize I need balance - or more accurately more positive things to focus on - Lord knows I'm so blessed.  Sometimes when I re-read a post I think that reader(s) will think I'm uncaring but I can't worry about that now right ;)
Have blessed day,

James Kissane - Can't Keep My Mouth Shut Anymore About Him

For years this man has been like a leech embedded in my soul and recently I've learned to pull that leech out and stomp on it.

For years he has manipulated my mother and it baffles me how she cannot see it.
He has stolen so many things/items from her over the years - I could literally write a book.  As long as I can remember he has been a thief...stealing collectables, laundry soap, guns, you name it - he has it.

I was really ticked off to hear that he has struck again....he stole 2 bottles of laundry soap from moms.  First he says that he didn't take it - must be someone else!  Or he will say Brooke is using
