I am glad my lil blog lent some smiles to your day. I understand your stress..
my DH is slowing fading into the world of Dementia ..and it is much like watching the air slowiy escaping from a balloon. Nothing to do about it but be there and offer support when needed, can indeed be draining. WE need the opportunity to refill our cups from time to time. I have been fortunate in having friends and neighbors to meet with and get away for a few hours at least. I know the time will come that I will not be able to leave him alone but for now ..and hour or so is a good break. Is there any way or anyone that can step in and give you that lil bit of a break? Know I am thinking of you , understanding the dilemma of caring and being overloaded at the same time. I can offer you my friend ship and my shoulder ..and ear to vent to and a heart that cares for you. If you need to vent or just spout a bit..send me either a Sparkmail or I can give you my personal e-mail if you wish.
Know that we all care..and emoticon understand this walk is not an easy one.

A mountain bluebird colored car! How funny!! They do like their reflections, I have birds flying into the window. The male birds I think are very territorial and try to fight their reflections!
