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
Ahhh I might like this new normal

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 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

Of course I went to town to check on mom today. She was doing fine and the minister from her church was visiting. So I sat with them a while and walked her down to her lunch before I came home and took a nap. Then I did just a little bi... Read more

But that is not going to happen. Now my mom wants to go see my dad. Don't know if I should drive her up or let my brothers arrange that. Will have to decide pretty soon because he isn't doing too good. So many things to consider. My "... Read more
Stress pain isn't to well controlled by drugs.

I've tried to not crochet or play games on my computer all day because my left shoulder is so sore. It also is not responding to any of my pain meds. I did get some relief from a muscle relaxer but that is short lived. I also kept findi... Read more

How can you forget what stress does to your body? I've been so upset about my shoulder being sore that I completely forgot that having tense muscles tends to really make my shoulders sore. I only realized it today when I started peeling the cu... Read more

My plan is to go to sleep tomorrow and wake up next Monday. That way I will miss all the stress of having to go to my brother's house and spend the time with his kids, her kids and their families. Seems like I'm just an invader. I would so mu... Read more
Even better day at home today.

We didn't get nearly as much snow as we expected and that is a good thing. But there was one thing I forgot about.....don't leave our clothes in the dryer. You need to warm them up in order to fold them. I did manage to get up to my sew... Read more

This whole having dad away from here and only having to take care of mom is going to be a new normal. It doesn't look like dad is ever going to get good enough to come live with mom again mostly because she can't aid in his needs at all anymore... Read more

I slept pretty good last night but woke up stiff and sore all over. I think my body finally realized I wasn't moving so much. I had been noticing that the muscle near my knee that has been bothering me has been much worse lately but have ignor... Read more

For the first day in weeks I managed to not need naps and had plenty of energy. I did run in and visit with mom for a little while this morning. Then I came home and got the cat hair off the hard wood floors and made sure the garbage and recyc... Read more
