Taking care of the parents

As a kid you often fail to see the point in doing things that are actually really important such as brushing your teeth, cleaning your room, and being safe when playing outside.

Back in your days as a kid your mom and dad are often following you around to make sure that you don’t forget the important stuff. Even though they would much rather be putting their time and energy towards other things, they do it because they love you. As a kid you often fail to see the point in doing things that are actually really important such as brushing your teeth, cleaning your room, and being safe when playing outside. Now that I am adult and my mom and dad are getting older, we have slowly started to switch roles over the past few years. At least once a month, I make the two hour drive down to my parents house to hang out with them and to check on the house. They are getting very forgetful in their old age, and this has led to many problems with their a/c unit. They will run this old and run down unit on maximum settings for weeks on end, and then forget to schedule an HVAC service check up even though I reminded them over the phone! I have found over time that it is best when I come down and act as the mediator between them and the HVAC company they hire, because any questions the nice gentlemen ever have for them about the state of the a/c unit, my parents never actually know! I must have been a super ornery and forgetful child back in the day, because karma has left me with some lovely, yet extremely forgetful parents to take care of now!
