Yes It was one of those days

Excuse me could you please tell me where mustard is?
Down aisle 2.
Where is aisle 2?
Yes that was a question that I received today.
Stared at the customer.
Blinked a time or two while trying to formulate an answer.
Aisle 2 is still where it has always been.
We have yet to move the aisles at all.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

          1. I know, I get it. I’ve been reflecting on things this morning myself though, and I realized with my dad’s situation, I’m frustrated and treating everyone like they don’t know what they’re doing when that isn’t the problem at all. They are well trained and educated nurses and staff. There are just too few of them to tend to Dad’s needs, so when they don’t come fast enough, he gets impatient and tries to get up on his own. Then they have to put him in a sh air and sit him outside the nurses station so they can make sure he is safe and doesn’t fall. What I NEED to do is call the parent company in California and complain they hire more staff and stop spending money making us miserable by having to put on a spacesuit to go visit Dad, instead of hiring more aids to help their patients!!!

            1. I understand that. My sister is in a care facility in Alberta and she has told me stories of aides and nurses. My frustration lies in the fact that I cannot be there to help her and go to bat for her if need be. (She is my half sister. We found one another, or rather she found out cousin and then me, in August. It is like a part that was always missing without knowing it was missing found its way home.)

              1. Oh gosh, that’s awful. I’m trying to control myself and my fears, because worry and guilt are eating me alive, I imagine it’s the same for you…I have four half sisters. I did not grow up with them, so it never occurred to me to tell them what’s going on with Dad. It would be nice if they could help, but they are out of state as well. All east of me, in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. I think. Lol, I lost track of one of them.
