I do hope you and your Mom and Sister are all doing better. Maintenance of the elderly is an 'in the trenches' job. Bless you all!

Taking some down time is crucial. I had my mom in my home for a whole year. Trying to keep her healthy with meds and food and exercise was tricky because she wanted to do things HER WAY, not the medical professionals way. So we clashed at times. Many times. Then I found out that I had to have a large mass removed from my ovary, which was major surgery. I told my sister, Mom wants to go home, now is the time, because I can't deal with both stresses at once. That was at the end of March. And my sister is STILL doing more for mom than I am.
I was just so stressed. I told everyone that while I'm down 8 weeks for the surgery, I was just gonna go ahead and plan a nervous breakdown during that time, as well. lol

So, take care of yourself...get rested up, get motivated...get your house the way you like it...and THEN move on.
Enjoy your DOWN TIME!

Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.


And we all lived happily ever after...

I lost my job as private caregiver, because my client passed away - almost 6 weeks ago now.
I knew I needed to give myself some downtime; and I've gotten restarted back on SP now. I like that part. My struggle now is; finding that path forward again, my house has suffered.
