I mean I really really wonder how old my daughter is. Do you think common sense says mom would need food in the house today? She did leave me the car but there is no way I can drive it on medications while shaking like a leaf due to lack of food. How hard would it have been to buy a loaf of bread, some bananas, milk? Just some very basics. Do our kids really have such little common sense? Am I expecting too much to want some food in the house? She's working a double shift. Started at 11 am, gets off around 11 pm. That means she left around 10 am. If you can't tell, I'm hungry, tired and cranky. I am going to scrounge in the kitchen again. So far, I've had 2 hard-boiled eggs (there were 14 when I went into the hospital), some rolls I brought home from the hospital, about one-fourth of a tomato -- she left it out and it got rather soft. I think I spotted one hot dog. And then I guess I could eat condiments or maybe some cat food or canned veggies. She even ate up all the soups but the ones I'm allergic to. Okay, I came up with something -- hot dog, canned peaches. Don't have to stand too long and it's edible. So, how old do they have to be to get the idea that when people get home from surgery they need nourishment and really can't get it themselves?
