A One Way Ticket To Midnight

Going Down?
I'm sorry that the posts are coming slow to this blog. Keeping up with four blogs is proving to be more than I can deal with. Plus, it's fall. Winter is on the way and my "honey-do" list is really more than any honey can do. LOL Not really, but that sounded pretty funny.

Things are going great. My cigar blog is over 6000 page views per month and climbing at a steady pace. It's time to start working on some advertising to pay for all this. Oh great, one more thing for my to-do list. I'll just keep plugging away; one step at a time.

So I'm sure what you really want to know by now is, how is Mom?

Well let me tell you. Other than being wild and crazy, she's doing pretty well. Since the days are shorter now, she's up way more than she has been all summer. She is up normally between five or six hours a day now, but her mind is slipping more every day.

The other night at dinner Paula told Mom she would be 88 this year, Mom got pretty mad and pretty much told Paula she was lying. I'm not sure why it made her angry but it did. She also asked Paula on Sunday how much she owed her for breakfast.

Stepping back a bit to Friday, Mom came out of her room for breakfast all wild-eyed and confused. One thing led to another and I ended up asking her if she knew my name. I had a pretty good idea what the answer would be before I even asked. Her reply was "no," Even though I had just called her Mom it didn't click.

Mom's sister-in-law Donna called a few days ago. Mom talked to her but had no idea who she was. The real reason Donna called was to tell me that Mom's brother Jack is following in Mom's foot steps and the Dementia is starting to take over. They now realize what I had tried explaining to them is coming true. I feel for that side of the family because I think he will be worse.

Well I guess that's it for now. I have a cigar and a coffee review that still need posted and of course that honey-do list still has my name all over it!

Have a great day!

Just so you know, I don't let Mom's mind get to me anymore. Sure I wish she had a sound and functional mind, but she doesn't and never will. It is what it is.

Oh, the "One way ticket to midnight?" Midnight is about the average time I drift of to sleep lately.
