You’re not even that old!

My mom is only 56 but she acts like she can’t do a damn thing. Her response to almost anything is that she’s too old for these things or that at her age she shouldn’t be doing certain things. These things are simple; mopping, taking out the trash, cleaning windows, cook, etc. She asks us to help her but is perfectly able to do these things on her own. How do I know? Because when she finally gets tired of asking she finally does these things herself. But she needs a full day to recover. Ugh. Such a drama queen.

Nope. She’s perfectly healthy. I’ve taken her to check ups and aside from slightly high cholesterol, this lady’s health is excellent. She doesn’t even complain about anything hurting she just says that she’s too old.

That’s annoying. I wouldn’t mind helping on occasion but if there’s no health issues I would tell her to hire someone if she doesn’t think she can handle it.

Lol. What’s going to happen when she actually IS old? Is she just going to sit in a chair and direct everyone? I’m just two years behind her and I’m still working 12 hour shifts.
