My m-i-l is driving me CRAZZZZZYYYYYYY!!!!!!! Last night, I had just fallen asleep. when I heard a cabinet door banging. Then "I want \water!!" By the time I got to her, she had forgotten about the water and was looking for her purse. Mind you, it is now 10:45 p.m. and I would much rather be in bed!! After half an hour of getting her settled in bed. sleep was not for me.

But a new day...yes the frustrations of my m-i-l are still here and not going anywhere. I am trying so hard to learn how to deal with her. So the reason for my blog today. I have not been making the best choices lately because of my frustrations with her. I am proud of myself for the choices I have made today. First, I walked for 80 minutes. Yes, a good reprieve for me to be out of the house! My second good choice was breakfast. I really wanted a bowl (or two) of Reeses Puffs, but opted for a bowl of all-bran with some raisins instead. I know my body will thank me for it! On to more good choices!!! I must learn to take this one day, one moment at a time and not let my m-i-l drive me to eat.

Did I mention she has dementia, can't see well and can't hear with a darn?
I know this is not exactly the stuff to put in a sp blog, but I needed a place to vent! I apologize !

    My husband has memory loss too, and he is up all night sometimes. Drives me mad! But he's ok. Don't worry about putting it in a blog, that's what SP is for. Keep making those choices and hope your knee gets better soon. emoticon
