The cranky thread

Recommended Posts

And we're back to my Housemate's mother trying to drive off again.

Because, you know, screw the innocent she might run over. (She even hit the drive way wall, just scratched her car, and then tried to drive down the road.)

 

Oh well, it was nice to get a mile beyond the house for a whole 40 minutes before we had to whip back because news got out she was driving off.

 

She had paused, possibly trying to figure out how to get to the post office. Or maybe it's too dark for her to drive.

 

As for now, she and her daughter are having a conversation in the middle of our street, two cars. Etc.

 

I try to remind myself it's Dementia, not the fact she's a selfish evil old #$#$# who is making a power play to control her daughter...

but I'm not sure I can make myself believe it entirely

Most of the issues in my life seem to be getting better, or at least not getting worse. Why have I been so cranky and/or depressed lately?

 

Then again, it's the Christmas season. That's usually enough to put me in a bad mood. 

 

*Insert Vader's voice* The Grinch is strong in this one!

Ugh! My deepest sympathies.

Housemates have THREE different spots (Soemtimes four) /family branches to go to.. so tree stays up until they can find the time.

And , of course, to 'organize this' to everyone's 'are you available this weekend' takes all month

My wife's chronic illness has us so off our game this year that both of us failed to properly plan for Christmas shopping and wrapping.

 

In one of the more pathetic scene's of the year my 10 year old wrapped her own gifts that we ordered for her off of Amazon and then the next day opened her own self-wrapped Christmas gifts.

 

Complete parental failure on our part.

 

Fortunately, we've loved her up enough over the years that she only briefly chastised us and then we picked up the day by playing the Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne board game.

My CPAP told me that I got an hour an ten minutes of sleep on Christmas Eve. So I feel your pain.

 

You can only do what you can do.

Good vibes and prayers requested for family. Alas it's the 'I am not allowed to share details' frustration thing.

 

I had hoped things would go smoothly for the next few years, but it looks like the terrain is metaphorical land mines.
