Virtual hugs and prayers for you Alix - as Kadesma said, it is the people who do the looking after that are important rather than the ones who just talk about it (and can always do it better) but are not prepared to actally do the work.

We all appreciate and respect the work you do for your mum (and as a mod as well).

Alix- When my gram got sick, my mom couldn't do anything right. I could do the same thing the same way and my gram would thank me and be really appreciate it. One day I told her you know my is the one who told me what do do and how to do it, how come you don't thank her? She told me that, that is her daughter and it's what she is suppose to do, I was he granddaughter so it was not expected.
I told my gram that maybe it's what she is suppose to do, but not she didn't really have to, she could have put her in a nursing home and let other people look after her. I also told her that it hurt my moms feelings when she yelled at her all the time and thanked other people. She didn't realize what she was doing . A few days later she asked my mom to go to lunch with her as a thank you for all she does. After that they tried to go for lunch once a week and that was my moms thank you.
I feel for you and if people are asking why you didn't do this or that, just say it was lower on the priority list this time, but when it needs to be done next time I'll be sure to give you a call.

This is so trivial, it's stupid, and those who know me know it fits I decided to make some 5 min bread, we love it so i get things ready, everything is going just fine..I open the oven insert pan of water and decide it needs a tad more..That's right I had to snorkel to get the mop and some towels .My poor DH heard me yelling every truck diver curse I knew and came running thinking I was hurt we both ended up sitting on the floor getting wet and howling...All is mopped up now and I'm here sharing this drivel with you..learn a lesson from ol dummy here: put pan in oven and then pull out the rack with pan on it and add you water..Works every time
