My mom is getting older.
I am noticing more plus more that little things are start to bother her. She seems uneasy when my buddy and I are in sizable crowds of people plus that never seemed to bother her before. She is also absolutely distracted at times. Driving to a new location is almost impossible. My pal and I have tried to convince her to get a GPS for the car but she does not trust it will work. She still like relying on a paper map which can be out of date or taxing to understand. It can be absolutely discouraging. The other area where I am noticing fluctuations is in the temperature of her house. When she was younger it constantly seemed like her house was cold. She would insist on keeping it at a low setting to save on money. She also used to tell us that germs did not spread as fast in a cooler house. Lately, I have observed that it is absolutely warm. She is constantly saying that it is too cold. I have contacted the Heating and A/C company in the area plus they performed a complete check of the system. They said that other than the boiler being older, everything was laboring fine. I then had a local handyman check all the windows plus doors for leaks, they too were fine. After having everything checked, including my mom’s health, my buddy and I have decided that with age she must just be feeling cold. My biggest problem at this point in the rise in electric bills. My pal and I will just have to deal with those when they arrive. Her comfort is worth it anyway.
