My mother needs help. Getting her to accept is proving to be very difficult. I am pretty sure she qualifies for SNAP, but she do what is necessary to get it. Now, I am wondering if there is a chance she qualifies for veteran benefits. My dad served in the army, but I don't know all of the details. She is a master at not giving info she does not want to give.
I text her: "B said your shoulder was bothering you. Are you okay?
Also, I was wondering when dad served in the army. What
years was he there? Do you have any of his papers?"
She immediately texts back: "I am in a lot of pain. Taking new medicine. Taking the dogs for a walk."
A few min later: " it is 72. Dogs need to go out."
Yes ruralcurls - that is so frustrating. I had that issue when my mom was alive.

Two more people in my department resigned today. I'm not the least bit sad as those leaving are low level workers, but that's just my opinion. I didn't hire them to begin with. Personally, when the director left last month, morale went down. The director was a lassez-faire kind of manager. I am not the kind of person that needs micromanaging as I'm productive and on point but there are those who aren't productive unless somebody's up their butt. A lot of people think the next director won't be so laid back and won't let them get away with a lot of the crap they get away with now, so they're taking a pre-emptive strike and flying out the door. As for me, I've worked with all kinds so nothing phases me but I have to wonder what these people think they'll be facing in their next job.

I bet I would cry if I saw Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. It's been a very long time since I've seen it.
I do feel oddly sad when I think of the song.
PBS developed a new cartoon based on Daniel Tiger. It has all the characters from the Land of Make Believe. He does the songs too! My little one was watching it while I was making dinner and I started singing along. Thats when I found out I will always cry.
Word to the wise: if you don't want to cry, don't look up Mr. Rogers' lifetime Emmy speech. You will bawl.
