The Flip Side

While most of my days are not so funny, there is always a flip side to anything. Take for instance, Saturday.

As I said earlier, on Saturday morning, after we got back from Wal Mart, husband went to bed. I was doing the heavy cleaning.

Pat & Christine had given me some pretty artificial trees when we moved in here. They may be artificial, but they look so real. They had been in their garage for a few months. The dust on them was bothering me, so I had the bright idea to put the one in the living room in my shower to rinse off the dust. It worked beautifully. I stood the tree in the bathroom to dry and finish my cleaning.

A few hours later husband woke up. When he came into the living room, he had a funny look on his face. I asked him what was wrong, he said, "There's a tree in the bathroom. Why is there a tree in the bathroom?" At first, I thought he was hallucinating, then it dawned on me. I had left the tree to dry in the bathroom. Poor guy, that almost did him in.

I had to laugh, he finally laughed. Kristen came home and I asked her to get the tree from the bathroom. She looked at me as if I had lost my mind and said, "Go get the tree is the bathroom? Yeah, right Mom. Do you need a break?"

Rule Number One: Never, ever leave tree in bathroom with an Alzheimers husband. Why, you'll scare the you know what out of them!!

  1. Hah. I think I shared before that we had some fun times when my Dad had Alzheimers. Those laughs kept us going. He always thought he lived somewhere else. He would tell my mom that they needed to hurry and get out of their house before the owners came. One time my brother and I both got them coffee makers for Christmas. I jokinly said that Dad could take one to his other house. He stood up and walked over to check it out and was just pleased as punch that I said that. Hopefully you will have some good times mixed in with all this awful stuff. I continue to pray for you and your hubby.
