Had a wonderful time Saturday. Yet after a full day from 8:30 to 6:00 I was feeling impatient with mom. Hopefully I kept it on the inside. She wasn't having her best day and complained and had to stop a lot. You can tell she isn't walking like she does in the summer. Walking and exercise seem to really make an improvement in her...her balance, her core strength and her moods etc. She is less of a hypochondriac when she walks regularly. Now she thinks something is wrong with her and it changes daily. She is not drinking enough liquids...because then you have to use the bathroom...and she has issues with leg cramps ...oh well. I think she had fun..she just drained my energy Yesterday I called her on the way to pick her up for church and she sounds puny and said her stomach was upset and she couldn't keep anything down...just saltines and soda...so are you going to church...Yes aren't you? When we picked her up she was fine. Then we go out for breakfast after church...and she ate her "usual". My hubby kept telling her if you get full...don't eat any more and she cleaned her plate. Go figure! She is good about telling us things and her actions don't show them. She was telling us how she would "NEVER" sleep in church and we caught her yesterday nodding off three different times. Why does she say those things??? Drives me nuts some times. We just keep quiet. It does no good to argue with her and it just upsets her...we just let it roll. It doesn't matter in the big picture...just after a day of that...I'm am worn out and tired of it. My fear is I will be like that some day! UGH! At least she is my mother-in-law. It's different for me my parents weren't complainers. My dad had terminal cancer and he would say he had a little discomfort...and I knew he had to be in extreme pain. He rarely complained and was greatful for everything. Just different families.
Took a nice ride with hubby yesterday. We don't get anything done at home but a ride through the countryside is relaxing and pretty. The sun was out and we had a nice time. We did some walking too! That felt good!
Off to the new week. Where will it take me? What adventures are yet ahead for this week?
