What a wonderful day I had. Spent afternoon with Hubby at a road rally...our first and what a neat adventure. The day was cool but sunny and beautiful. He drove I gave directions and we didn't need a marriage counsellor afterwards! Ha! Ha! We enjoyed the adventure and only had to turn around twice...and this was our first time. We tied for 11th place. It was a fun adventure outside our usual box. Then on our way home our dear friends who were on their way back from the Missionary Convention in Knoxville stopped by with their 4 children and we got to spend a couple of hours with them. They are so dear to us. What a lovely surprise. What a wonderful day! Thank you God!

Well we made it to Friday! The weeks seem to fly by...Got meeting with my boss for lunch today about budget and plans for next year. Wonder what is up ahead for us. Things seem to be smoother at work. Attitudes have changed for the better. Maybe it was just an adjustment time for all of us. It was pretty intense for awhile. Hubby helped me fix problems with new program. Looking forward to the weekend..some time to clean a little and spend time with my hubby.

Yesterday was busy day but made it through it. Had meeting in Dayton at 7:30 then back to work by 9:30 and then training on a new program for work until 6 pm and then home to work on project until 8 pm. Whew! It was a productive day and I did get my morning workout done! Didn't get to exercise last night with mom but will try tonight.

Starting to do more new things with my job and I like it...just a lot more work.

Off to make it a GREAT DAY!

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 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?

    I can so relate to your struggles. I've learned to try to live in my mom's world. It's like Alice in Wonderland, except it isn't so wonderful. What's true now won't be true in 30 minutes, at least to her. In her world, no one comes to see her or calls her. She just sits there by herself all day. Reminding her of what happened is just another source of frustration to her. I love her dearly but it is very, very draining. It's good to take some time for yourself and your husband to be together. I hope this week's adventures are good ones! emoticon
