I confess to feeling very old!

I retired from work just two weeks ago and am now back at 'home' to help care for my aged mother.

My father died three years ago and she is only really just adjusting to this. Not in good health with cysts on her lungs, antibiotics help but she then suffers with terrible mouth.
She is in a lot of discomfort and is disorientated and frightened. I told her that I would sleep in her lounge if that would make her happier and her reply was," I don't want to be a bother." As if she hasn't done enough for us all our lives.

I have been doing her garden for her. She is happy that it is weed free and has some colour. That was easy in comparison to trying to clear Dad's veggie garden! I can honestly say that A) he was recycling way before it became the in thing. B) Under everything there is something. C ) Something is under everything!

I feel that I am just moving bindweed, ivy, docks and other weeds to find the remains of rotted cold frames, panes and panes of glass, flowerpots by the hundreds, rotted sacking and polythene and enough wood should it still be growing, to form a forest!

I ache from pulling weeds, shifting rubbish, lifting heavy tubs of broken glass and trips to the local recycle plant.

Yesterday I found a tin storage shed in one corner that was about a foot covered in ivy. It took me ages to clear the ivy and when I did, to get the roof off. (The shed is actually worth keeping as it is sound) Started clearing out more flowerpots and found a stash of booze! There must have been about 40 bottles of wine, none opened, packs of lager, many rusted out, some spirits. I emptied the lot as it was no good! No doubt there are some very drunk slugs and snails!
Just my luck that one of the cans exploded as I grabbed it so I stank like an old brewery.

I confess that I am finding caring for Mummy harder than any physical work.

I confess that I once ate half a bag of marshmallows when no one was home.

I confess I used to only steal carrots from people who had more than standards have slipped.

I confess that this thread has given me great ideas for next April Fool's.

I confess that when I was little I would play in the kmart parking lot and "swim" from little 'island" to "island" (the little grass and trees that are often randomly in parking lots)

I confess to being a horse owner after only a year of riding lessons

I confess to screaming yesterday and jumping to the couch when I saw a bug on the floor

I confess to being a dork

I confess that I want to start sticking post-it's up all over my house to remind my roomies how we do things around here. Some of the things they do/have done makes me want to bang my head really hard against a wall.

I confess that I lied to one of the roomies' kids yesterday about how good the garlic toast their mom had made was. (Yuck!!) 3 pieces were left, I ate one and threw the other 2 away saying they were burned.

I confess that even though I don't own a horse and probably won't for a while, I bought 3 bridles a few weeks ago because they were on sale. They are now hanging up on a wall in my living room.

I confess my stacation last week was pretty much a waste since it rained all day everyday.
