Where I Want to Be

Bugger, bugger, bugger. I wish I could just be transported here. Right now.

Kind of a blue day. I need to snap out of it. I wish Cher were here to just smack me! (From Moonstruck.) I signed and faxed the papers to release the contract on my mom's house so the family can get their deposit money back. So sad. Hopefully, they too will see that it just wasn't the right time or house for them. I can only hope. I want to call but I'm afraid it may make matters worse. I will sit tight until I feel better myself about the whole thing. I'm hoping we have another buyer which is good for us, bad for them. They are renting right across the street from the house and can't help but see it. I know it will be very hard for them to see someone else get it. I will continue my prayers and know something better will come along for them.

Mom wasn't feeling well this morning, but she seems to be doing better. I brought lunch in to her and that seemed to make her feel better. She can never quite put into words what the problem is. The only thing I got out of her this morning was her holding her head. She said she thought she felt warm. Well, yes, when you bundle up like it's winter time (long underwear and all) in the middle of 100 degree weather, I think you might be a little warm. She said she wasn't dizzy which sometimes afflicts her (hey me too--welcome to the family with vertigo). I will keep an eye on her and see if she can figure out what it is that doesn't feel right. It's so hard sometimes. Like treating a sick child when they can't talk and they can't tell you what hurts. Poor thing. I feel so bad for her sometimes. I know it's frustrating not being able to communicate like she once did.

Yes, it's hot again. We had two days of our normal weather; but today--wham--hot again. I went out on the porch this morning to enjoy my coffee and came right back in. Mom, the kid and I sat on the porch yesterday morning and just rocked and enjoyed the nice weather. Not today.

I want to do something, but I cannot motivate myself to do anything. I'm just a slug today. I want to crawl back into bed and just forget about everything. I need to go get dinner going. I took last night "off" so I better be clanking them pots and pans tonight!

As I've posted my 98 yr old grandpa has trouble in this heat too! He just won't drink enough and I believe that affects his thought processes.
It's hard to be in the parent/child reversal thing..
(in my case grandparent/child as my Mom is now gone)

That kind of heat affects everyone, especially the elderly. I've got vertigo too so I sympathize with you and your family!! Hopefully your mom will feel better soon and that it will cool down soon too!!

I hope your mom feels better soon and the heat lets up for us all! It's miserable in Paris the last few days, particularly today. It's hard to think, much less write or do anything constructive in this heat. So I admire how you've baked and cooked and yes, even folded shirts! :) Love your blog's backdrop. As for the thwarted house deal, maybe if you just wrote those nice people a note, it would make them feel better? I hope they find something suitable soon.
