I logged in and found I had earned 5 trophies last month

I must be doing something right to get all these trophies in one month. Now that I've set the bar I'm going to have to see what I can do to keep these and maybe even earn another on in May.
It snowed again last night and I didn't sleep until after 3 am. It took me till 1 pm. to get around to walking the dog. I only went out for half an hour and didn't even attempt my jogging since my knee's were feeling sore. It was little icy snow coming down during my walk.
Emotionally and physically I am feeling on empty, so I know I am going to have to push myself a bit harder to do more things that are fun like doing some dancing for a while this afternoon. That usually picks me up.
I talked with both my sister and my mom and they will be moving her into a full care nursing home at the end of this week. That could be part of why I'm feeling blue. It's just one more step towards her losing control over her life and being fully dependent on others. I know she's losing her short term memories more and more and this is what she needs at this time in her life but I is still sad to see it finally happening. She can still take her dog to her new place which we didn't think she would be allowed and because she is on the bottom floor the door to the outside is just across the hall from her room so she doesn't have to go down the elevator any more to take the dog out for it's piddles. Another good thing is the laundry room is closer to her room now so she doesn't have to walk all the way down to the end of the building to do laundry anymore. The provide three meals there and where she is at they only provided two. The new place doesn't provide an overnight guest suite like her place now has so when we visit we will have to make other accommodations.

    Praying for you, girl. My daddy just passed on in November, but we were having similar concerns for him. It is hard to watch parents get older and become our dependents. BIG HUGS! Hang in there. This too shall pass. Enjoy her all you can, while you can. And keep winning those trophies! emoticon
