Mother Hen


It’s hard to not act like a mother hen some days, especially when you’re a mother and you’re responsible for your own mother.

She’s back in the hospital again. My mother, that is. She fell today when she was outside having a cigarette, and she cut her head open. Smoking is dangerous to your health, I tell you!

She’s had six staples in the back of her head and a CT scan to say that’s all that’s wrong with her this time. Unlike last time when she fell and broke her neck. At least it wasn’t that horrendous.

Now, I’m just waiting for my eldest son to come home from work at 11:30 pm so I can go pick up my mum and drive her back to the retirement home.

Oh, to have harmony in my life.

Thanks so much to the three ladies who gave me today’s “H” words. You’ll find their links under the words “hen,” “horrendous,” and “harmony.”

I could use some “I” words for tomorrow’s illegal A to Z post. One word per person in the comments, and please keep them safe for work. Also note when you’re looking in the comments to see if I already have my three words that the oldest comments are at the bottom of the page.

There's a writer in here, clawing her way out.

  1. So sorry–quite frightening for you both, I imagine.


  2. Sorry to hear about your Mum. I hope you get her back to the home okay.


  3. HEY, give your mom a HUG from me and tell your son HELLO!


  4. Wow, never a dull moment for you, huh Linda! It’s too bad you couldn’t “join” in the A to Z this year. You’d have done incredibly well.


  5. Sorry for you mom, and sorrier for the frustration you must feel. I hope she’s healing well.


  6. Sorry my word was so helpful. Okay, sorry you had to identify with it so well. Well, sorry your mom hurt her head and you had to spread your wings wider. (This would work well for W!)


  7. I’m so sorry about Mum. ☹️ Hope she gets well soon.
    As for the “I”, after that post, I’m going to say – insane. Seems appropriate. 🤓😉


  8. So sorry for all your troubles. Smoking is definitely another ‘H’ as well, ‘Hazardous’. 😱 Hope your mom will be okay.


  9. Hope Mom will be alright.


  10. Sorry about your ISSUES! Wishing you a peaceful Wednesday. 💖


  11. I’d’ve’nt (I would have not)
