Hobson’s Choice and Circle of Life

I haven’t been on to post a real post in some time now. I want to thank my followers for their kindness.

Firstly, this is mainly due to the awful new upgrades WP has implemented with the dashboard changes. I get extremely frustrated trying to work with the posting tools and so on.

GEE THANKS, WordPress.  PERHAPS THE NEXT UPGRADE SHOULD INCLUDE USER-FRIENDLY    TOOLS OR INSTRUCTIONS...?

I like it when I can easily come in and put a post together without hunting the globe trying to find the controls I have been familiar with. So I gave up in a way…not to worry, though…when my patience returns, I will return in a little more regular posting.

ANGEL OF PATIENCE

ANGEL OF PATIENCE, WHERE ART THOU?

Too many changes at once.

Then, more recently, a personal problem, which concerns the caregiving needs of my ailing mother has developed.

One day I woke up and discovered (several years ago, actually, when Dad died) that I went from being a parent’s child to being the parent’s parent.

It is a sad time,  wrought with hard choices and limited options from which to base choices.

Sometimes I wish I could be 5 again…

WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO ME?   WHO AM I, anyway?

  1. Windows, WP and Flickr have all gone the death-by-upgrade route but I am optimistic that they will recover. Hang in there, we need to hear from you.

    I actually went through a period of care-giving when I was in my early teens and my grandmother had lost her short-term memory. I stayed with her a lot. I also watched not too long ago as my brother was helping his wife who eventually died from Huntington’s – it’s very hard and it takes a very large toll.

    Good luck. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers and I’ll look forward to every post you scratch out. Give that mouse a cracker.

  2. Where in the world did you get that video of me at the keyboard? 🙄

  3. I feel your pain… for both challenges. WP is following the path of Windows. They take a perfectly good program and keep upgrading it until it is useless and frustrating. My parents are also my oldest children and their bad choices are actually more expensive than my daughter’s. I’m not sure how close you are to your mom, but I’m 750 miles away from mine and that makes it harder. Hang in there.

    • Thank you for your encouraging words. I am fortunate that Mom is here in town. BTW, I saw the item about the hearse at the donut shop (who didn’t, right?) come through with your email addy on it…but saw it as a forward. Terrible shame about that.
      We will be in Williamsburg June 14-19th. Wish I could come your way to meet you. Maybe another day…
