Toeless in Sacramento

Oh, I just hate it when life keeps me from writing about life! I've just been utterly busy and adjusting to the new work schedule and not had time to write and when I did, no motivation! My new client is a pistol: she refuses to eat vegetables, she says she has had enough of them to last a lifetime, and confines her nutrition to penut butter and jelly sandwiches, half a banana and macaroni and cheese. This is supplemented with those vile "Ensure" type vitamin drinks for the elderly which are pure sugar. Yuck! The fact that she expects me to wait on her hand and foot like a ladies maid, including putting the toothpaste on her toothbrush for her is another story entirely...

In the meantime, I got a very pretty PINK pedicure and promptly stubbed my big toe and tore the toenail half off! I'm not kidding! I'd show you but it's not for the squeamish.

Be careful with those tootsies! Your card arrived yesterday. The envelope had a bit of a bang up with I guess a sorting machine. Keely loved the envelope's pattern... she marveled at how it was handmade. I think it is neat how you have get togethers with folks and make such cool stuff.
Toothpaste on the brush. Hee!

Pretty toes, but ouch! I thought being a lady's maid died with Queen Victoria! lol As for not liking vegetables, I cannot imagine it. Tell her that green leafy veges are good for helping to stop degeneration of eyesight. I kid you not, they are!

Take care

Ouch on the toe!! Pretty pink though:-) Gosh, I don't think I'd have the patience to work with this elderly lady, I'd soon have to tell her where to go! lol Tell her you are there to help her but there are limits...she can put her own toothpaste on her toothbrush! Sheesh!
