I got one more item taken care of yesterday. The m/c has a beauty shop within it. Mom sure does need a good haircut! I called the number I was given for the hairdresser and she said she is there on Tuesdays and would add my mom to her schedule for a haircut next Tuesday. She said they just add the charge to her monthly billing. Works for me. I hope she's agreeable to it next week. I would think it might make her feel really good to get "prettied up". I hope so.
I got an email back from the manager at mom's previous apartment that they will be crediting her bank account back the prorated amount, so I need to make sure I keep out an eye for that and don't forget to make sure it's credited.
Caregiver K texted back again yesterday and said it's tough, but she will adjust. At her stage of dementia it just takes time for this new place to become her "familiar" now. I thanked her for her wonderful care of my mom and thanked her for helping give me the push I needed to make the move and find her memory care.
I did try to call the doctor's office that works with the m/c but got a recording and then didn't get time to try back, so I will try again today.
It was a quiet day yesterday with no calls about or from my mom. I decided to (hope) take that as a sign she was having a better day. I also did not call her, as I figured that would just trigger the "I'm ready to leave now" thoughts. If I don't get any calls this morning, I'm going to call in and check on her with the nurses station. Today's afternoon "social hour" is an ice cream social. I'm sure she will enjoy the ice cream.
Temps are starting to warm up a bit. High 30's/40 for the daytime high. My hens are back in full production and I'm getting between 1 and 3 eggs a day, rather than 3 eggs a week. I can't remember if I mentioned we had mice in the coop? Dh figured it out when I was on my work trip week before last. I think we have rectified that problem now. Once dh saw the mouse that one evening, when he went to check for eggs and close up their door (as it was going to be -15 that night) he saw the mouse. He put out a trap and within 15 minutes it had caught the mouse. He put it out again and the next morning there was another one caught. He hasn't caught anymore in the last week and a half.
