Now that I've been up at at it this morning, my voice is mostly back. I've only talked to the cat so far, LOL. Of course mom couldn't remember this and kept calling me....sigh....I'm not sure what is going on with her caregiver. No one showed up to make sure she got her meds last night. Don't work the holiday? Ok, no problem, but that would have been nice to know a bit ahead of time. She's usually been coming around 6:15pm give or take, a few times just before 6:30. Well, at 6:30 mom's dispenser is chiming to notify it's time. I'm watching on camera and of course she picks up the phone, thinking it's ringing and tries to call me (she had been in her bedroom when it started chiming). I let it go to voicemail and hoped Liz would show up soon or mom would figure it out the next chiming in 5 minutes. She did not. Then just as the 3rd one was about to start I decided to call and get it taken care of, voice or no voice, and mom again picked up the phone, but then she noticed the dispenser flashing and took the pills. And she thinks she doesn't need the help.
While I was watching all this on the camera I heard the announcement over their loud speaker system that the dining room was opening back up starting in the morning. So, I check in on her via the camera this morning. She's not dressed or ready to go downstairs. She does still have some milk and cereal and I saw her get herself a bowl of cereal and sit at her table to eat. Liz nor her assistant ever came to make sure she got downstairs for breakfast, that I can tell. I supposed one of them could have popped in for a couple seconds and mom told them she was having her cereal, as I didn't have the camera on every minute, but I really don't think they did. A bit frustrating, to say the least. Those are the 2 main things I wanted done for mom - her evening pills and to make sure she gets down for breakfast.
We only heard some fireworks, off in the distance, right as it got dark last night and only for about 10 minutes, which was nice and short. One less thing for dh to complain about. He never seems to have a shortage of things to find to complain about, that's for sure. I'm also surprised the rapid fire gun shooter was quiet all weekend. We heard it some while dd was here those last 2 days, but just a few quick bursts and then he was done.
My trip to the office next week (Wed) seems to be coming up fast. I feel like I need to get "prepared" but for what I don't know LOL. Just pack some clothes and go, haha. I plan to go get groceries and see mom this coming Saturday. I'll need to figure out some stuff to leave dh to eat, since he won't cook for himself. I think next Tuesday I'll make enchiladas for dinner and he can have the leftovers Wed night for dinner. The next couple of nights he can heat up spaghettio's or eat a sandwich or something. I'll be home Saturday around 6:30, so we can grab McD's or something near the airport on the way home.
Last night I finished season 2 of Stranger Things and then I went to bed, so I don't think I'll finish up the show by today, which is fine. It'll give me something to watch in the evenings the rest of this week. Since I also have today off as a holiday, I should get some time to watch another episode or two. I really don't have much to do today, so I just plan to relax and take it easy. I have some chicken breasts thawing and plan to make a chicken, rice and vegetable casserole dish for dinner. Should give us leftovers for tomorrow too.
