My little side-yard garden is taking shape a bit at a time. I got the pieces made that will hold the string supports. The pvc pipe is quite flimsy so I may change these before my plants get big enough to climb. That's why there aren't any strings yet and why I have it attached to the side of the house. I'm thinking about it for a few days before doing more to it. I'm thinking I should get some fence posts which will be sturdy. My plants will get put into the ground this weekend or on Monday, depending on the time I have for working outside.
One more day and I can start getting my own routines back.....maybe. I will be with an empty nest once again. This time won't be nearly as hard to handle as the first time. This time I'm proud that my daughter has her own house. She's put down her roots and started making her own nest.
My mother has decided to go on a hunger strike at the hospital. She's also refused to take her medications. That's not good for an insulin dependant diabetic. I just don't know what to do about her anymore. She's becoming increasingly angry and abusive to other patients at the nursing home. She hurts people. She runs over their feet with her wheelchair on purpose. She sneaks up on people and hits them or throws things. She sneaks into patient rooms and tries to hurt the bedridden patients. She's started hitting or biting the staff. She is then sent to the hospital where she can only stay 14 days and then she's sent to another hospital where she stays 14 days to be sent back to the nursing home. The cycle is then started over.
