There's Always Something
Monday, March 29, 2010
I thought with my mother in a nursing home nearby things would calm down and I would be able to focus a bit. Well, that hasn't really happened. I am glad that I can visit her often and come home at night (as opposed to spending a week at a time at my parent's home). But there's been so many issues! Insurance (her 100 days of medicare are running out next Sunday). She's not eating. She's had fevers. This and That.
And what I'm finding is that because she IS closer to me, a lot of this is hanging on my shoulders. Yes, one sister is a little close (but she has a full time job and 2 LITTLE kids) and my other sister can really only come on weekends.
But I have continued to go to WW meetings. I WANT to lose weight, but I especially DON'T want to GAIN weight. So, if I can maintain until my Mom's next surgery in a few weeks...I think I'll be ok.
Don't get me wrong. I'm still trying to do my best because I KNOW that taking care of myself is sooooo important to coming through this whole thing.
My sisters and I think we should write a book when this thing ends. If you only knew the half of it!
