I'm so glad to be back in my own home. I spent the majority of last week at my mother's house with her. There truly is no place like home. While I'm glad mom is doing better, I really prefer all the comforts of home. I was able to log more fitness minutes at my mother's house (she wouldn't let me sit still - LOL). If she wasn't summoning me to do this, that, or the other, I was outside destressing by trimming overgrown weeds and limbs, mowing her huge lawn with the push mower, or sweeping debris from yard work. She is up at the crack of dawn demanding breakfast made to order. I'm not nagging, I'm just venting. I also got to bond with the siblings and their children. They still under appreciate me, but I was glad for the help. Now that mom's medications are back on track and her doctor's appointments are current for a few weeks, all I have to do is schedule and coordinate her home health aide, physical and occupational therapy visits, and visiting nurse appointments. It's hard being the reliable, trustworthy, dependable child. My work is never done. I thank God for my mom. I just hope when my time comes, my son and daughter take care of me.
