Ack! Apologies for never getting back to you; we ended up finalizing candidates when you reached out. But yes, let's talk.

My work is trying to create a pool of developer freelancers and contractors. Does anyone have any good leads for individuals or smaller agencies? Our tech stack includes WordPress, object-oriented PHP, Vue.js, Rails. Cost is a factor, so open to outsourcing.

That said, my parents are going to live forever. Mostly because they're going to be pickled by the juices of their own hate.

Don't tell me this is the human experience, because if these are the models I'm going with, it's nothing but pain.

If I'm lucky, The Great North American Tsunami of 2041 will get me in the middle of the night and I won't be none the wiser.

But it's a shitty situation to be caught in the middle in, and I know one thing: that I would never want to be in this state, 88 and arguing over misused funds and declining memory and adult children with mental illnesses with someone I can't stand but am co-dependent on.

At this point, I literally don't care what the right story is, I swear.

My parents are arguing in the other room, as either 1) my father has forgotten to give my mother a portion of the mortgage for the past three months because of his mild dementia (as per mom) or 2) my mother is a cheat, extorting money and sabotaging my father and I (as per dad.)

Tonight is my last night staying with my mother; I'll be spending the rest of the weekend up with K up in SF until I return to Miami on Tuesday.

Also, no surprise emails like "HELLO OTHER FATHER, I AM READY TO CLAIM YOU AS MY OWN" which is mixed blessings, I guess?

A weird upside of all of this is that I get to read dad's personal email. Mostly just spam, bill receipts and email subjects like "social security nightmare!!!" which is like, eh, I'm glad Dad's knowledge of English is slipping.

d) Use the only digital photo he has of himself from his phone as a contact photo, a nine-year-old portrait he took with his then-girlfriend in what was clearly happier times for all parties involved

c) Add his basic information into the Apple Health app and add me as an emergency contact because you never know when a paramedic might check the iPhone of a 90-year-old Asian man seriously I have nothing to go on here

b, part2) ask him what his iPhone PIN is. Panic for 4 seconds when he responds with "I FORGET MY MEMORY IS NOT TOO GOOD," then ask him what his birthday is instead

a) Write down his passwords which he stores in a notepad he carries with him, to store in my 1password when he forgets again

Me, the next morning: What did you think of Netflix? Did you watch anything last night? Mom: It was so-so. Too many cartoons. Me: ...uh, okay. What did you watch? Mom: "BABY BOSS." Me: Huh.
