so.....as a devoted daughter...

you call in the morning,
in order to make sure that mom is UP and going to breakfast.......
(they serve meals at the senior facility)
mom likes to sleep late...
but you are PAYING for breakfast !!!
and its part of the program !!

and she promises to go.....
but you've heard this 'song and dance' before......
and you KNOW that she may just go back to sleep.....
cause she's alwayyyyyys been that way......

so....
you tell her you're coming up there......
and doing the shopping for her,
because she NEVER GOES TO THE PAID BREAKFASTS !!!!
and she's gotta eat !!!

and she tells you that
"SHE DOESN'T NEED ANYTHING !!!!!"
and you try, yet again,
 to EXPLAIN that she should either
EAT THE MEALS THAT ARE PREPARED at the facility.....
or have food in her own kitchen......

and she tells you NOT TO WORRY......
and you tell her that if she truly doesn't want you to WORRY,
that she NEEDS TO GO TO BREAKFAST !!!!!

and the two of you go around and around in circles.....
EVERY SINGLE DAY !!!!!!!!

and that's it.....
that's how it goes.....
