“Change the game. Don’t let the game change you.”
I know Macklemore wasn’t talking about taking care of your grandma, but I’m in the trenches, and I think it applies. Instead of letting her do crazy stuff and getting mad about it, I’m playing the game differently. Staying a step ahead. Dividing and conquering. Whatever it takes to extend her life — but not at the expense of my own sanity.
I hope others will read my posts and laugh — maybe even rethink their game plan for dealing with the elderly people in their lives. Of course you should always love and care for them, but when it comes to how you accomplish that, it’s all fair game.
After writing this blog for a month, I’ve expanded on my blogging philosophy a little to give people a better idea why they should bother reading.
