Well.....here it is a chilly rainy day in Connecticut. They say it will rain all weekend. We are sitting here waiting for Mom's bus to pick her up for daycare. My days seem shorter when she is away, but it is good for me to have time to get things done around here. My major cleaning gets done on the days she is there. It's a strange position to be in when you are the sole caregiver of someone, especially your mother. She is acting more and more like a child. You have to give her instructions one step at a time or she just sits and does nothing when it is time to get out of bed and get ready for her day. I am hoping that I will not have dementia or altzhiemers, but find myself forgetting things more and more. Maybe it is because I have lots on my mind. I sure hope that it! I love my mother dearly, but this is not an easy job day in and day out. Is there anyone out there who can understand where I am coming from?
