The Nagging

by Gail
(USS)

Mum is 89 and still able to get around a little. But she’s a nag. Always has been. When I work 50 hours a week ( at age 62) and get home, her greeting is ‘when are you going to do the laundry?’ Or mow the lawn-whatever.

Also, she hates music and my former cleaning ritual involved loud music and dancing.

They forgot

My mom was the same way. You couldn't keep her pleased(ever).
They have been retired for quite a while and I think they forget how demanding life is when you work. Also their jobs were not as demanding as they are in this day and age. No one ever said it was going to be easy and they were not kidding!

I was a single mother and worked 80 hours a week, that was a cake walk compared to taking care a demanding mother. Now I have a crazy father to endure.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
