Better Day

Sunday, August 07, 2011

Thanks my good Spark Friends for letting me vent yesterday and offering your support. It sure makes it easier to be able to spill my frustration on here and not dump it on my poor DH-he too has to deal with dad so he doesn't need more reason to get upset with him!
Dad has been sweet as pie today. That is what I expected. Later this morning I called him to come over for his shower but he said he had hurt his shoulder and didn't feel like it so I went over to check on him-he broke his arm and shoulder about 4 yrs ago so it is weak. He could move it so I think he just pulled something and I helped him with lunch and dinner so hopefully it will be better tomorrow-the thought crossed my mind he was playing for sympathy so I would not be mad at him any more but I didn't bring anything up today and he was much more positive so maybe this was a good thing.
I left and went shopping with a friend this morning. we took a couple of hours and did some grocery shopping. Nothing exciting but a little time to get away.
I went to the pool for nearly 2 hours after that but a storm sent several of us scurrying home-was glad for the rain so I won't complain.
Again, thanks my good support system for being there when I needed you-venting was better than drowning my hurt in food!

    Hi Pat

    As INFLATED said: You won't regret your efforts once he's gone. You're doing right by him.

    No one's perfect ... so I hope you've forgiven yourself and moved on.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Drowning yourself in food never helps, it just adds to the feelings of frustration.

    I know you know this, but you will not regret what you are doing when he is no longer among the living.

    I had to go back read what your were venting about. Sorry, but I had to chuckle a bit - Don't you know they never praise the one that takes care of them - only the ones that treat them like dog poop on their shoes.

    They are confident with your caring and abuse you - dumb - I know, but I have never seen it fail. My kids always have been offended, because I don't want them to take care of me. They are getting to the age now, they appreciate I find outside help when I need it.

    I am happy you are feeling better today, better to vent than to explode! You know you are safe in here!

    Hugs & good energy heading your way.
