Margie Unplugged; "Here's the Deal"
As y'all already know, I don't hide the fact that this blog exists from my friends, family or associates. Even if I did, there is no way of preventing anyone I didn't want to read my blog from doing just that.

Sure, I could easily snag an annoying account elsewhere that demands that readers are invited or registered to protect myself, well... from myself. From my words, thoughts and actions that could very easily land me in a stink or two. ...

... but that ain't me or what I'm all about.

Truth is, I have A LOT to say. Enough to fill this blog with interesting, amusing and great post writing two or three times a day. The problem is that much of my subject matter would not be about me. The subjects would be the many persons I'm dealing with day to day.

Persons that I deal with on an intimate level where privacy and trust is of the utmost importance.

I have adult diaper tales that would leave my readers sides hurting for the rest of the day. Also a bunch of shocking depression era dating and romance stories that would shock your socks off.

Yet, I don't feel obliged to share them. I'm limited to fact filled, and informative experiences of generic boring subject matter of geriatric care.

In the past few weeks I've been struggling with scruples on how to achieve a balance of privacy and entertainment in my blog writing. Knowing full well that I have sensitive knowledge that will offend everyone at one point or another.

Also knowing, that there are so many out there in the Blogosphere that are going to have to care for their aging parents in the near future. So I need to share my experiences including the embarrassing moments, the funnies and the "Oh my Good Grief's".

Starting this week I will make an attempt to do just that.

God Help us all.

    In caring for people there are times that a laugh at a situation is for the best.

    I look forward to be educated with fear and trembling. Will I need to bring my own adult diapers for show and tell? :)

    I'm passing around shots. We got Jack Daniel's, Heineken for the poor folk, and Skyy for the Ruskies.

    If we all are afraid of offending someone we would probably never do anything. My kids have no idea what life will be like later. Boy are they in for a rude awakening.

    Since Betty and I took care of both mother's for long periods I understand the problems. I also know thyere are funny things that happen. Like when we took both Mothers to Vegas and Betty's mother asked why we brought the old lady along.

    Miz Margie, you are the dearest, sweet, loving, caring and Christian lady I know! God bless you! You need a break, girl, or at least a laugh. After "stealing Bubba's Bra" story from you, I decided to make a blog just for laughs! I hope at least one of the jokes will make you laugh out loud! Also, thanks for the heads up on Stumble Upon. Neat site. My name is udderlysexy on the site. You know me, wishful thinking.....lol..
    Here's my laugh blog!
