Mom is unable to make simple decisions for herself. She lives in the moment and cannot think beyond right now. Though she seems to get a little anxious about things that involve her. She puts a new meaning to the term - living in the moment.
Mom: What are we going to do today?
Moi: I don't know yet - What were you thinking about
Mom: Me? Thinking. I'm not thinking
Giggle, giggle, giggle. She realized what she said.
As she goes to bed, she usually asks about tomorrow. Of course, she will ask at least 5 or 6 times until I need to say, it's time to go to bed now Mom.
Mom: Am I going anywhere tomorrow?
Moi: Yes Mom, tomorrow is Wednesday. Wednesday is for ??? W e. I try to get her to play along with me to see if she can figure it out.
Giggle, giggle, giggle. She is happy because she got it right.
One day at a time
Mom living in the moment
