My mother is getting to an age where she needs someone there.
My partner plus I do all we can for her.
She lives with us plus you can find her great in her room or lounging in her chair watching her programs. Other than that you can find her in the family room helping our partner or baking. With the holidays coming up I get gleeful because she bakes the best cookies. I don’t think what is about them however they can not be beat by anyone. She moved in after our father passed 5 years ago. I wouldn’t want her anywhere else besides here with our partner plus I. All those years struggling as a single mom, living paycheck to paycheck, on food stamps, making sure we had clothes, a roof over our head, etc. She deserves a life of happiness plus I’m doing our best to deliver it to her. I care about our mom, I definitely do however there is a downside. She typically wants the thermostat set to 85 degrees. I turn the thermostat dial to more of a passable temperature of 71 degrees. This has been ongoing ever since fall hit. It is colder outside for sure however 85 degrees? I’m strongly thinking about putting a smart thermostat in so I can have more control. While I’m at labor she can have it warmer however within an hour from myself and others going beach house I can set the temperature to what the family is used to. I’ll have to ask our friend Ryan how it works plus the benefits. For now I’m going to buy a portable space furnace for her family room. She can turn that heat up to 1000 degrees if she likes.
