Todays main job was to take my mom to visit my dads sister.

That was a hard thing to do. They did enjoy the visit. Both my mom and my auntie Verna. She might be going on 99 and her body is giving out on her but her mind is still really sharp. I think she thanked me half a dozen times for bringing my ... Read more
Another day of dealing.

Mom decided she wants a memorial service now so that is happening next Fri. Tomorrow I will be taking her to see her sister-in-law (my dads older sister). They have been friends for about 70 years. She can't leave her nursing home so I will ... Read more

Early this morning my dad passed away. He is at peace at last. The past 6 or 7 months have been hardest on him but still hard for all of us around him. Watching him decline was harder than losing both husbands. My dad was never sick and then... Read more
Really cold out but still in the same boat.

Every day they tell my brother he won't make it thru the day or night and still today he pulled out his oxygen and swatted at the nurses but he's in bed now and just waiting. It is a hard place to be. I've been here before since I've lost 2 hu... Read more
My hope for this year is for the stress to lessen and the pain to be gone.

Arthritis is a horrible problem. Now that both knees are replaced I keep finding other things that hurt or ache. If I walk too much my one hip acts up a bit and this left shoulder really doesn't like playing on the computer and even hates croc... Read more

Both shoulders and my neck are so stiff and sore. I did get into town and got mom her groceries and picked up my pain meds. But while I waited for those I strolled around Walmart and spent too much money. Many of the things I will use really ... Read more

It hurts so bad today. I have done nothing to make it worse. I did play on the computer about 1/2 hour and I did do some pinning on a quilt project. But I did not crochet. So it should not feel like I want to rip it off my shoulder. The pai... Read more
My mind has gone bonkers...it just keeps thinking up new things do to.

Seems like my mind has just gone crazy. With a little more time on my hands I keep thinking up new things I'd like to try. I'm going to have to make a list and sort some of these things out. Some of them will not be possible as long as my lef... Read more
The simplest pleasure is being at home.

These days at home are just so wonderful. My stress is so reduced with mom being where she is and all those aides just love her and do extra little things for her. Sadly many of them had problems with my dad because he was so often cranky and ... Read more
Today was an in-between day...not good or bad.

I'm feeling a bit off today. I did have trouble sleeping last night and then when I did sleep slept too late this morning to get much time with mom before her afternoon nap. So after I got her a loaf of bread and me a couple of groceries I was... Read more
Love these peace filled days.

It's been over a week since one of those parents have called me with an emergency. I will have to go into town tomorrow because my mom needs bread. I can do that. I haven't had to take anyone to the ER in over a week. After the last m... Read more

I don't have to run to town to check on mom nearly as often since dad is not there calling me every other day to come take him to the doctor. He's in really bad shape and I'm sorry he has to continue to live like this but it is what it is. He ... Read more

I just plain did nothing today except what I felt like. I laid on the couch until almost noon watching silly Christmas movies, then I went up and sewed for a couple of hours came back down, fixed some lunch and took a nap. Then it was dinner t... Read more

I did take my mom to see her great grand kids and my brother did a good thing by making sure both of his daughters were there with all 6 great grand kids. So mom enjoyed herself. Even the newest little one that will be 3 soon (adopted) spend a... Read more

My nephew was a real treat today. He might not be my own kid but after what we went thru with his mother we have a special relationship. It was a long drive up to see dad but he barely even knew we where there. This upset my mother some... Read more
