In Need of Restful Day

And today is my restful day. I could sleep all day to rest but even I called this restful, I have children to teach and watch. What a two months of moving/cleaning/repairing and I can't still see the end of it all. Maybe I will today a lighter day of house-work load. he he he

An early morning sun @ Chestnut Ridge Farms

Our classroom is set-up. In-laws suite is ready to move-in to. Big kitchen is only waiting for counter top & backsplash. Kitchen hard wood flooring started. Laundry room hooked up. One toilet, two sinks, one shower running. Everything else are on hold until we get to it.

We still have so much things to do. Wood & coal furnace will be hook-up today. The duct work will be DH jobs. We have one propane heat running to warm a room that we all sleep in. The children bedrooms are still waiting for fresh paint to be set up, as well as the master bedroom.

Whew! Just talking about all the things need to get done makes me very tired. I better start my restful day.

LATSOF/Sky Watch Friday

Thick canopy makes the brick house cool inside. However, I don't like because it's way too dark below for my liking and mushrooms grows underneath.


Around our new property, North side neighbors and what not.


We can see mountains around us.

Cleaning/Repairing/Moving

In that order as soon as the water, plumbing and electric get hooked-up in our new house/property. SIL and DH friend called it mansion. Then I told DH it should be "mansionette" because it isn't big enough to be a call mansion.

Yes, we bought a bigger house. And we have two potential families interested in our cute house. Four bedrooms, one & half bath, kitchen, living room, dining room. A basement, one car garage, twenty-four square-feet with chimney. Yes, we used to have a wood burning stove but DH removed it and replace with propane fireplace. Yes, he regret giving it away. I told him to place it in the garage but his reason was, "too messy to keep."

I usually pack my mini-van every time I go to the new house. Not much room though because I always take my children with me when I go. Boxes of things we don't use here, mostly office/school supplies, winter clothes...etc.

That's it for today. Time to be productive.

Same Old MIL only Different Day

Every day same old story for her. Waked up not knowing where she is, yelling at her husband for sharing a bed because he is a stranger and she never saw him in her life. She calls him old, but when he answered, "just like you, old," she will say, "are you kidding me." Sounds to me that she thinks that she is not old, even looking on the mirror.

Telling us that we are teaching our children to lie to her, when we asked in front of her who are in the picture. You can see how backward her thinking is. I always give her the angry look every time. And when she is in the good mood and remembering things, I am more angry.

I can't wait to move in our new (old) house. She can have her own bedroom and DH & I don't have to explain to her much. She can think that she lives in home for the ages. She doesn't have to complain sharing a room with her own husband anymore. Two and a half more weeks before we can sign the title transfer.

DH Thought of an Idea

I was also glad that DH thought of it. Ever since he told his mother about this, she never had an episode that she wanted everyone to get out of her house (well she thinks it's her house) because we are not wanted or we are strangers.

Please remember she has dementia and lately she can only remember us 95% of the time. She is like a two year old with extra hormones. Since she always thinks that the old man in her (their) bedroom is a stranger, and she never met him (but only now) or saw him in her life, DH told her, "when your husband gets home, let him deal with the stranger." "You (his mother) are not authorize to throw anyone in the street, we will ask your husband as soon as he gets home what to do with these strangers."

I think she thinks that she is still young (20's). Even looking at the mirror does not help. Her brain cannot comprehend that she also looks old.

However, since she always forgets to ask her husband to throw the stranger every time she remember, there is no harm done. We also told her to check her bedroom for the said stranger when she remember her husband, but somehow she thinks the stranger ran away or hiding in the closet or jump out of the window.

The stranger must be a magician because nothing is broken, and the clothes the stranger wore somehow magically transfer to her husband. I'm happy that we can stop her from screaming at everyone to get out. I can't wait to get a bigger house to give them separate bedrooms. Soon, I hope.

Bang, Crush, Clang

When we first bought our house, everything we got fits on the main living floor. We have three pc's, DH, ODS and mine. When my family grow from four to six, so was the pc's because everyone wanted to be on it and play games. Even a two year old DC can use it.

So, we expanded downstairs. Half of our basement is finish, then we put all of the pc's down there except mine. We ran out of desk and DH made one and also made an office for himself because she doesn't like it when the children made a messed of everything he has on his desk.

Well, fast forward to this weekend on Saturday. While all of us are busy playing games, we all heard crush, bang, boom inside the classroom upstairs. DH office is just underneath. I ran down, because when I don't come down right away he gets mad saying, "I may be hurting and cannot call out and you never bother checking up on me," so I did.

He even opened the basement door for me, he looks very red, I asked, "what happened, what dropped so loudly?" It was his homemade desk, he said he was trying to get up and cannot remember if he pulled or pushed the desk, then it collapsed on him. Pc, monitor, and router are off. He thinks he ruined them.

Well, everyone complained about the internet being off, so I went to his office and unplugged everything behind his desk, and looked for extension cords to plug everything I took off the wall. I found out the that the outlet got pulled out by the dropped of his desk.

Anyway, he moved his pc into the classroom. One of the extra Ethernet cable is not working so well for him and all I hear is him sighing and complaining on what's wrong with it. Well, he finally figured that the cable is faulty and got a new one which work just fine. Then, the monitor is not big enough for him. ODS came home from college and he's not using his desktop. I told him there is a flat monitor on top of the bookcase. He don't want to bother because he doesn't know where to put the tube monitor that he's currently using. I said, just make it small, no answer, then all of a sudden, "duh! I can shrink the size." I told myself, what am I chopped liver? And I have to put up with him now that he is in the classroom right behind me...ugh...Man! If I don't help, I get a sermon, when I try to help, it just pass through the other ear.

Excuses After Excuses

Selective dementia is what I always call what she have. I always think that she is playing a game every time she claims that she doesn't know anything or she doesn't remember anything. You would think that she will be a little nicer when she claim it, but no, she is in her nastiest when she is like that.

Sshhhh, don't say anything I said that, "she says in the low voice." Now, she is turning me into a liar like herself for not confronting  the person she is talking about. We all know she is crazy, but for not saying what we think making us look more crazier than she is. The way she talk, she makes a two year old less absurd than she is. However, I can't get myself to believe that she is sick the way she act.

She calls her husband old man, but she can't grasp that she her herself is not young. And you will think that she should be nicer to an old person because she thinks she is young. But no, she is still nasty to old people. I should probably install mirror every where, so that she can see that she is also old. Will she see it, and comprehend it in her mind?

Ugh! this is way too early for me. I should go back to bed and wake up refresh again.

A VISITOR FROM THE PAST

by Thelen Paulk

I had a dream the other night, I didn't understand.
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by the bed,
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low, he said: 


"We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny,
For future generations, this legacy we gave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave." 


"The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you'd always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly, while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone, your courage lost, you're no more
than a slave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave." 


"You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun,
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent,
Although you have no voice in choosing how the money's spent." 


"Your children must attend a school that doesn't educate.
Your Christian values can't be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current news, in a regulated press.
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the I.R.S."


"Your money is no longer made of silver or of gold.
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our nation turn from God in shame,
You've taken Satan's number, as you've traded in your name." 


"You've given government control to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm,
And keep the country deep in debt, put men of God in jail,
Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail." 


"Your public servants don't uphold the solemn oath they've sworn.
Your daughters visit doctors so their children won't be born.
Your leaders ship artillery and guns to foreign shores,
And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people's wars." 


"Can you regain freedom for which we fought and died?
Or don't you have the courage or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values for which you'll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children to live in fear and be a slave?" 


"Sons of the Republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!
Preserve our great republic and each God-given right,
And pray to God to keep the torch of freedom burning bright!" 


As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from which he came.
His words were true, we are not free. We have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants trample each God-given right,
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight. 


If he stood by your bedside, in a dream while you're asleep,
And wondered what remains of our rights he fought to keep,
What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave?
Is this still the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?

Wordless Wednesday

Frogs can be seen at PIL swimming pool. DH told me that his parent bought the house in 1988. I met them in 1998 and when I saw this pool it was already like this. Ten years, from a very nice swimming pool to a very expensive frog breeding water...hehehehe MIL insisted that she loves the music they make. Yes, but she will not love it when the time to sell the property, and not getting what she paid for.

Manic Monday

Staying home with the children on the week days, I don't know what to do first. I got so much things lined up for us. Just thinking about our schedule makes me go back to bed and stay there. hahaha I promised I'm going in the pool with them. But I still have to go to the bank, tobacco & grocery store, and it's almost 2pm. I haven't eaten yet.

Still Almost New

Summer is just around the corner, in two days to be exact. One of my little bundles of joy will be celebrating his seventh birthday at the end of the month. My children are not picky when it comes to presents. I thanked my husband for insisting turning off the cable television in our house a long time ago. I buy what we need and nothing else. However, sometimes we need almost everything when hubby does the shopping list, lol.

With growing children like weeds, I must buy clothing and shoes almost every month. I am glad that I'm done growing, because I will be adding womens new balance walking shoes to the list. I bought two pairs when I was still working, and washing them once dirty can stay almost new. I'm not the priority at this time when needing something is the topic. I can survive with what I got.

Furthermore, have you noticed that it is getting harder to buy products made in America? This company sells made in USA shoes, if the domestic content is 70% or more. I would love to learn how to make shoes from start to finish. We don't have too many shoe makers now a day. And mostly, made in USA is disappearing everyday.

Advertisers Blimp or Other

Yes, I was amuse seeing one of these in the residential area. Why? Because you will only see them on areas like beaches, parades, ball games, and none of those things are close to my house. Yes, they are showing ads, yes I saw it. However, my amusement stall me for getting my camera that is why the blimp is far away and tiny already. It was pretty noisy while passing between my house and my neighbors' house.


At first I thought my ODS close the blinds at the window behind him. I looked to him and saw him looking out the window telling me, "no, it's me." Yes, I ran out, looked up and there it was over head and very noisy. I was trying to make out people but their window was tinted and cannot see anything. While trying to see, my mind was telling me, "are you sure that's for ad or only camouflage what they are really doing," like spying on home owners and scanning houses? I don't know. With all the things happening, including drones, it will not surprise me. Are you aware of your surroundings? I try to be.

And She Stayed Home

That is MIL today. FIL had a doctor's appointment and being with dementia she didn't feel like going out with someone. She usually the first one to volunteer to go out of the house for anything. Sometimes they will go out four times a day. Depending on how irritating she gets.

Anyone, from what FIL said, he feels that she "extra" didn't know him this morning. That he is a total stranger that likes to hang-out with her. One of this days I might say, "where did you pick him last night, might have been such a crazy night for you for not to remember who you are with," woohoo grandma! picking-up strangers for one night stand are we?"

With that, I think DH will be able to smack me. hahahaha Anyway, with that thought in mind, I don't think I will be able to say something like it. She was fine the whole time FIL was gone. She have a questioned written in her face, but I ignore it. Scared on what kind of answer and question she would say and asked me then. She stayed in the bedroom the whole time, except for the bathroom used.

She is Getting Worst Everyday

I have been watching some videos of people with Dementia before writing this. Most of the videos I found are nice people whom missing memories. I don't know if no one really wanted to post videos of people in the bad mood or most of them never got angry.

A little background on what my family is dealing right now. My DH mother had been diagnose with cancer in the summer of 2012. Storm Sandy came and they lost their power and waited 3 days before coming to our house. That was when FIL told DH.

On 2011 the east coast also had a storm and they also lost their power and had to live with us until their power came back. That was then when MIL forgetting that she already have bread in the refrigerator.  She eats special bread whom she swears has no flour and very very good for human health.

So, one year past and FIL was told by the doctor that she is in the last stage of dementia. She can't follow conversation and she gets agitated very easy now. I mention to DH that every time she blink, there will be a new MIL.

A little background about her, from what I only gather from thirteen years knowing her. She likes to be a private person, however when she gets mad everyone will knew about it. A hoarder in nature, a tree lover, organic lover, herb & natural food lover and eat all kind of bad junk food when no one is looking.

A control freak  and always thinks the world revolve around here. Her children are not allowed in her bedroom, in their garage, and in the kitchen. A smoker until the late 80's. Distrust everyone, but you are more likely to be given something if you are a stranger because she thinks her children will take everything from her so, she rather give it away to someone she doesn't know to teach the children. Does not like her husband having a father relationship and being compassionate to their own children. She always comes first, if not the hell comes loose and she will never forgive her husband for treating her as second. And a social butterfly.

From September 2012 until mid January 2013, FIL was able to control her. However, when she gets into memory failed, she cannot recognize anyone. Even photograph had no help, however a new face inside the house works very well. She cannot remember anything but still remember people in our house and if you go out and come in again, it's not the same as new face coming inside the house.

Now, we are in the phase, that every time she blinks she doesn't know anyone and become very grumpy. On Thursday they went back to their house to get more of her stuff (did I mention their nice size bedroom here in my house is almost pack). DH and our only nephew went in a separate vehicle. FIL and MIL came home first because they left first and the others usually are left behind to clean up the things it needed to be thrown out, and MIL can never be parted with them if she was around and seeing the whole process. Not to mention two strangers (strangers because she can't remember who they are) throwing her junk out.

They got home had a late lunch and took a nap. From what I remember she woke up while FIL was on the phone. She started walking back and forth looking confused and mad. Looking outside the window and door. I was just ignoring her because talking to her will only get me yelled at, by her. After a while, I think she could not take it any longer. She asked me where her husband while I was going down to the basement. I looked at her and smiled and continue my descend. And she asked why I am smiling.

I was relieved she did not followed me down. I came back up carrying some folded towel and I was putting it away in the linen closet and she followed me telling me that she doesn't know where her husband is, and there is an old man in her bedroom bad mouthing her to the police. I looked at her funny and did not say anything.

I think FIL was very tired driving three hours and helping her trying to decide what to take with her back in our house, and he doesn't want to deal with her nuttiness. He let her be that way for a few hours. I showed her their dating picture and asked if she knew who are in the picture, she knew. I asked if the people in the picture still look the same, and she said no, that they are older now. However, she cannot remember her husband is also old and his looks change. I think she was still stuck on what he looks in the picture.

She kept saying that is not my husband. He can't do this to me. I asked what did he do to you, which she cannot say anything because in real life, he hasn't done anything.

I think she was dreaming of policemen and she thought that FIL is conspiring with them about her. Or she got mad because FIL did not pay attention to her when she woke up because he was talking on the phone. Remember "always the first" and "the world revolve around her?" Like a spoiled brat.

Her daughter called up, and spoke to her but nothing was change. She was still grumpy as ever. She asked me again about her husband and I told her this time that the old man in the back bedroom is indeed her husband. She still refuses to trust me, and kept on bad mouthing FIL. I left her and walk around the house while holding my ears.

Finally, she went to the bedroom and asked FIL, and of course told her he is her husband, and the argument started. Why did you do this me, I was looking for you for a long time and you never said anything. (remember I said, maybe he was tired and don't want to deal with her at that moment) Why are you talking about me to other people (maybe because he was on the phone at one time) and calling the police on me (which by the way no police was called this time because she did not try throwing us out of the house). She kept on repeating "how can you do this to me." And very mad at this point.

I went outside to empty the sap from the maple tree thinking maybe she will stop when I get back because she may not remember that I live here and I am a new face. Anyway, by the time I got back inside the house, SIL was already inside (she lives about 45 minutes away depending on traffic), and this old MIL is so nice and cherry. I was glad she forgotten being mad to FIL already. She introduced her daughter with stutter pointing to me as her daughter and to her daughter as daughter in-law, SIL corrected her.

SIL and I were talking about the PSSA and she chimed in, "oh wow small world, you knew each other?" Like a said before, in a blink of an eye, you never knew who you gonna get.

DH and nephew finally got home, carrying her chest to their bedroom. When they came out, MIL asked if DH will be staying for the night, and asked if he needed pillows and blankets. DH, being naturally good at heart nicely decline saying, "no thank you, I got everything I needed."

Anyway, the point is; she is very nice sometimes and very nasty sometimes. And the videos I saw put MIL to shame, maybe because she was always been nasty? You tell me.

And It Happened

Yes, MIL finally broke down and told us to get out of our house because we are trespassing, and she stuck her head out the front door calling, "HELP! HELP! THERE ARE STRANGER IN MY HOUSE. THEY ARE MOLESTING ME." Yes, in my own house. She would not look at the deed to see whose name was on it. She would not look at DH birth certificate showing that she is indeed his sons' mother.

Yes, DH and her agreed that a police man should be present to throw my family, (mind you DH and the children are sick, yes sick with a flu) out of our own house. There goes what my family stand for about police officers.

Well, SIL came in with her husband before the police man came. My BIL asked her right away if she had taken her medicine. Like a snap, she stop telling DH (her son) to get out of his own house and she took the medicine from her bedroom and drunk it.

Now, the police man came and started telling her that he ran a background check on DH (Ugh I hate that) and he is indeed what he told her he is and never had any criminal record of trespassing at anyone house.

I could not sleep the whole night and today I feel like I'm the one getting sick. She is something else.

Let's go back early Sunday. I went shopping because I did not grocery shop the day before. I usually do it when the store first open. I came home, cook breakfast for the family who feel like eating.

Around noon, DH decided to go to work to prep the trucks for the snow early today. While he was out, I decided to lay down in the classroom because the couches are full with sick children.

I was not even lying down for 15 minutes, MIL came in calling my name. I said what is the matter? "My husband told me that L (her daughter) will come to drive him to the hospital when R (her son) get home." I was thinking if he need to go I can drive him there. MIL did not make any sense so I went to their bedroom and ask him personally.

He said that when R get home that we are going to the emergency room. I said ok. After that I called DH telling him about it and he told me he will be home in about 10 minutes. He also suggested that maybe if he can't wait, put all the sick children in the mini van and drop him off.

However, I think he don't want MIL there because she is the reason why he is having hard time breathing. He worry too much about her getting into everything in the house at night when everyone is sleeping and she is wide awake.

Well, you know what happens when you don't sleep enough at night, you fall sleep during the day, which MIL did while waiting for DH. DH came, FIL and I left for the emergency room.

Oh boy, oh boy. That's when the hell got lose. She ask where her husband, why he didn't take her, why he did not wake her up, why did he waited until she fall sleep to leave, that she will never see him again, that she will kill herself. Oh my. So, yup then the beginning this post is next.

I am supposed to go back two hours later to get some updates from the doctor; that didn't happened because of her. DH and I worry more about his father than anything. Just taking his wallet from his back pocket at the emergency room got his pulse up to 124. I told him calm down, when you clam down not worry too much you will get out of here faster.

I hope he thinks about it. Not that we like him to get back to the house right away, but he is old and cannot handle a lot. I wish they reconsider to put MIL in the HOME, rather than staying her with us for FIL sake. He can't handle her anymore. Even though I say that, he is, and still able to control her, because she never had this kind of episode before when he is around.

That's whats happening in OUR LIFE right now.

Ngeek! Winter is Here

Yes, it started on Monday...hahahaha. We are having 0 degree F for three days now including wind chill. I have been complaining that this winter is too hot for me. Yes, it's coming from a tropic woman.

DH had been sick since Monday afternoon. He stayed in bed all day yesterday and all day today. I am hoping he will get up tomorrow and at least take a hot shower to get his strength back, and eat some food. When I say food meaning good food..:)

He was asking for something salty today. I am glad PIL are here. They go out almost everyday and I asked them if they can get DH some salted pistachio, which they did.

Yesterday, was very windy and the garbage truck came by. They are supposed to collect on Monday, however for some odd reason they never came. Yes, I knew it was holiday (just to clarify there is nothing holy about Monday). I live here for 10 years and they never follow the holidays. So, I was surprised, maybe their truck wouldn't start on Monday, who knows.

So, I went outside not thinking of winter when I saw the garbage cans flying every where. I was only wearing regular jacket and long pants. Oh boy, did I blame myself. I could not breath, it felt like there was no oxygen in the air. Not to mention I was running because I don't want the cans going farther away. I thought I will never make it inside the house, geezz I told myself while taking my shoes off. Then I looked online on how cold it was. Sure enough cold. I think the running part made me breath funny. I never ran in that cold before. Yes, definitely a lesson learned in my part.

Then I found out on FB that my classmate in high school died the early morning yesterday. I was like, "WHOA," it wasn't him taking my breath away, was he? hahahaha. Yes, a great loss, we are only in our very early 40s. Our 25th year reunion is coming in May, oh goodness, he didn't made it, RIP 'mate.

Other than the cold, I am doing fine. I try very hard not to be around MIL when she is herself. I only like her when she doesn't remember much. Plus she is very nice when she does.

What about you, how are you doing?

Oh Thanks for Making Me Feel...

During one of MIL episodes for having her regular brain back for five minutes, she will argue with anyone that they should drive her home because she wanted to see her boxes of junks in her house. Telling her that she now lives with us and calling our house "shammy," and all we can tell her in return was, "oh thank you for making me feel such a loser."

She is very nice without her regular brain. Getting her memory back for 5 minutes is such a problematic five minutes. She is such a spoiled old *** in my opinion. However, she always talk about that looks and money is not important, but when it comes to her own family, apparently those characteristic are very important. What a standard! I am happy, she doesn't talk to me much. Her logic is a sham...

"I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations. I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
