Mom is at rehab until the latest the 22nd of March. I am enjoying the peace and quiet BUT I can't sit still I clean and clean. Plus everyday flying back and forth from home work rehab work hom etc on a daily basis. Its wearing me out.
I am deprived of sleep (aren't we all) but I am trying to sleep sleep.
The cats are surviving without her but Tiger is missing his grammy. Which he almost saw on Wednesday, he was 3 floors away from her. Witch! Anyways we corrected that problem, my boos talked to the head of admin and I provided them today with his paperwork and will be able to brin ghim up on Sunday (weather permitting). If it rains he stays home not having a soggy Breanna or Tiger.
I am going to double check tomorrow with them about him going up there without issue. I mean really he is fully vaccinated which is more than what most owners do (keeping a a cat indoors does not keep him safe from rabies or distemper) and he was in his stroller with his harness and leash on him. The cat was secured and just vocal but thats who he is.
Gram is driving my mother up a wall with guilt trips, she calls saying how lonely she is etc and my mom is like and what would you like me to do. so i told mom to ignore her. so now gram is harping on me about it. and i told gram its easier for me to stay in at work for lunch or now go visit mom (shes 5 mins away from work) than it is for you (she is 15-20 mins from work) and I told her with gas prices shyrocketing I am trying not to go anywhere so now she is bribing me. Fun.
And what is with these gas prices! I filled up monday it was $3.17 today it is $3.27 OMG! WTF!
My gym has become a faint menory to me, I have gone once since her surgery that was on saturday and I got an awesome workoutin but I miss it. I am planning on going friday and saturday. if it rains sunday maybe i'll go instead of going up to the rehab place.
i yelled at my fam that i am one single person and can only be expected to do only so much. mom was guilt tripping me for not staynig long enough each visit i have seen her every day that she has been in the hospital and rehab place) and my aunt is complainnig that i need to see gram more and gram wants me over mom and then wants me to schelp my mothe rover at least once a week once she is out of rehab. I justy one day had a huge meltdown and cried and told my mother while i was crying so then when i stopped crying and realized i felt better after telling my mother that I also told my aunt. i can't even try to talk to my gram because she get all upset then i'll have to call the EMTs not fun.
so thats that with me.
i am trying to hold it together. i am sick of doing dishes and litterboxes. and i am just hoping that tonight or one night soon i can just veg out at home and not clean and stuff.
hope everyone is having a good week. wish the winter would go away.

    Dear woman, may the Lord bless you as you try to manage all of this.

Maybe I can help you with a few suggestions, maybe not. If your gram is able-bodied, could she fix you a sandwich if you visited her? It would be one less thing you would have to do and a meal for you.

If your cats eat dry food, when you feed them, put enough in bowls for the next feeding and cover with the bottoms of saucers on top of each of the bowls. Any time you can save, can be used for your chores or so you can relax.

I put the kitchen-size trash bags over our cat's litter box and just turn the bag back over the litter box when it needs cleaned. A squirt of dish soap and cleaning the litter box is a breeze. Put another bag over it and some litter and the chore is done.

Don't forget you can log heavy cleaning as your cardio.

Take along one of those small pocket notebooks, put one in your purse and one in your vehicle. As you think of things you need to take care of, write them down in your notebook. Prioritize your lists so you can do the most important things.

I had my Mom to take care of, her apartment, a job, my family of four and an 8-room house to clean. I couldn't keep up. Mom ended up in a nursing home because she has Alzheimer's and several other major illnesses. I will pray for you. If there are people telling you that you need to do this or that, tell them you need them to take over doing this or that and most of the time if they think they will have to do something, they will let you alone.
