I don't know why I bother

My mum is not only hard of hearing, but also has a memory even worse than mine.

It's a recipe for frustration, really. Whenever I try to tell her anything, I have to repeat it many, many times, each time more loudly. She'll hear me in the end, but forget it after five minutes.



I promise this will be my last grumble about my mum. At least for the rest of this week.

repeat after me: "I bother because I care. I bother because I care."

Imagine if she read your blog! See, things could be a whole lot worse..

ms mac: I bother because I care. I bother because I care. I bother...

the editter: that's true. Much of my happiness and peace has depended on her not knowing stuff.

If she read your blog she'd probably forget it in a few minutes anyways.
I've tried writing stuff down for my Mom so I won't have to repeat everything but she loses the paper..

Taffy wishes his Mum was still around to be able to forget things and be annoying. Appreciate what you have.

happyandblue2: I wish I could write stuff down for my mum too, but she can't read!

kazzer: yeah, but if Taffy's mum was still around and being forgetful and annoying, he'd be complaining too ;-)
