    emoticon Thanks for the good advice.
No. 1. I am focusing on DH and hi density , high calorie foods. And dr. visits & tests to see if they show a physical problem. Otherwise, We'll do what it takes to build up his strength. And got a lift out of GD's soccer game.
No. 2. Had great grandson over and we both enjoyed that. Good for our spirits.
No. 3. DS had brother and friends help him put things in storage. DD choses to sort it out later.

DH often tells me things work out and this too will pass. I am still here and am sparkin. So your support was awesome help. Thanks.

  Whew! but add to the list take time for just you to breathe - whether it is a long long scented bath with the door closed and headphones so no one can disturb you, going for a solitary walk, getting a massage, finding a place to lie down and read.....

    Dear hubby is priority with his symptoms. But you do have a lot on your plate.

Does your son have friends who can help him move? That's quite a trip. Can daughter find someone to help her? Seven acres is too much for you. I hope she has a big mower.

The soccer game might be a good thing for you too. Relaxing, happy. How long is the great grandson staying? Probably not too long at that age.

Two things came to mind: 1. who is the most vulnerable and has greatest need? 2. you need to take care of yourself too. You're already a caregiver to your hubby.

I'm in a situation of being a caregiver and I know how tough it can be. Sparking can be done a little at a time, 15-20 minutes will do a lot. And that's a little investment in yourself. Just make sure you don't do it late at night like I sometimes do, and lose your sleep.

Please try to rest and not overdo it, and let us know how you are doing when you get a chance.

    I hope you didn't mow today! It is way too hot with all of this humidity. We had to walk to our extended evacuation site and then come back to an unair conditioned building. Oh man is it hot. It looks like I am going to the gym instead of running outside!!

    As DR939 says, start with the essentials - food for DH, shelter & love for grandbaby - then move to the nice to do stuff. Spark when you can fit it in. Then, take a well-deserved nap!

    Fix some quick food for DH first, then see what can be put-off, e.g., lawn mowing, Sparkin', moving. Perhaps take great-grandson to the soccer game. Relationships get top priority. He won't be 2 years old again and she will soon be on to some other activity. Don't miss the opportunity to interact with them. DH's need is something that can't be put off.
