My mom called around 4:20 yesterday afternoon. I'm not even quite sure why she called or what she wanted me to do. I think she just wanted to tell me about a "trip" she was taking. Something about she's going somewhere with 5 others she "works" with tonight..I'm like oh...do you know where (I'm thinking it may be some outside activity her apartment is taking them to?). She couldn't remember and then within one jumbled sentence something about having to pack for overnight (what?!) then no, we'll be back tonight I think, it's just this evening we're going to see something special. Then she said they asked her to go and only 7 are going and it's on the little bus her apartment has for transportation. Ok. First she said they are leaving at 5:30, then she thought it was 6:30. She said she was getting herself all worried about it and not sure why. I said well, it's just your memory isn't too good, so you're having trouble remembering what this trip is about. Then she said she didn't even really feel that good now. I said well, if you don't feel well, you certainly don't have to go...."well, they really wanted me to go, because not very many are going and the ladies are really easy to talk to.".
So, after we hung up I texted her caregiver to ask if she knew anything about my mom going somewhere this evening and if she's not there during her meds time I'll have to figure out something for her to take them when she's back. The caregiver texted back they are going to "music in the park". I replied ok, thank you for that clarification! I'm glad she got out for a change, plus I've read music is often great for those with dementia.
I found a show to watch. Several years ago, before we started building our house I remember watching Lost in Space on Netflix. I kept checking for season 2, but never saw one, so I figured the show never got renewed. Well, apparently it was Dec of 2019 when the 2nd season came out and the 3rd season in 2021, so now I have 2 seasons to watch. Nothing spectacular, but an ok show, haha. The nerdy part of me likes these kinds of shows.
We had a nice bit of rain yesterday afternoon, so I was able to skip my flower watering after dinner. I just watered the hanging baskets, which are under the front covered patio area. Still strange to me for it to be 85 degrees and raining, haha.
Dh has spent the past 2 days installing the heater in the Mule/side by side. This part is quite a job and he's still not finished. Mostly because twice now he has dropped a small part and then can't find it, LOL. I called our county licensing lady again to check back in with her (she never called me back from last week) and see if by chance they got the title so we can license it and she said yes, she mailed me the notification card the day before so we can come in anytime to license it now. We'll probably do that today.
Ok, so in addition to being a constant complainer, I'm also now petty and selfish. Okie dokie. Guilty as charged. I shouldn't have any problems with the overflow of fishing/rafting trucks and trailers using my property because the boat launch parking is overflowed and no where to turn around.....a mile and a half away.
If I had wanted to live right next to a boat launch I would have bought the nice, almost $1 million dollar house that was for sale when we were looking. Right on the other side of the road from the boat launch entrance. But we were like, no...we're looking for more privacy and not property right on a public road (hwy) and not right across the road from a public boat launch. So we found property a mile and a half away from the boat launch and on a private road. At first the extra fishermen and rafters, when the parking was full at the (small) boat launch would find a way to park on the shoulder of the 2 lane hwy, outside the boat launch entrance. When that got filled up they started parking in front and on the properties of the several houses across from the boat launch. Those people (selfish and petty, too, I guess) had enough and started putting up big boulders and sawhorses and no parking signs to block the parking and using their driveways to turn around. What's a truck and trailer to do? Well, keep on driving down the road looking for a spot to turn around in. Oh hey, here's a private road, private property, and a private driveway we can use! They won't care if I drive across their landscaping or drive over the culverts. They certainly have no right to complain if I think it would be even more convenient if I could just use their driveway to get turned around, so I'm just going to try to push their closed automatic gate open. Who cares if I break it?! I'm just here to get out and have a good time. How selfish and petty to complain about me.
Oh and speaking of the almost million dollar house across the road from the boat launch. It was for sale for several years and finally sold last August. The couple who bought it haven't even lasted a year. They put it for sale in May....for 1.3 million and have decided to move somewhere more private, apparently.
