I couldn't decide on a title to my blog so it is nameless
Today was a fair to midline day. My mother is having a rough week so therefore I am having a rough week. She is confused about her location. Often times not knowing where she is.
She has taken to sleeping in the chair at the kitchen table and can't be convinced to get into bed. I talked to her about it tonight and asked as a favor to me that she gets undressed and into bed. She is starting to have knee issues because her legs are always bent (my opinion).
I think the time has come for me to start looking into a nursing home for her. There's one in my town that has a very high rating in MA so I'm going to start there. I know it will be hard on all of us but will be the best thing in the long run.
Today I had a training session and really had to push myself to go. I was on the verge of tears all morning and wanted to hid at my desk. I did go to the gym though and had an awesome shoulder and arms workout. My trainer dropped some news on me.
My company recently acquired another company and she was going there to run the fitness program. I mentioned my own despair and then pulled myself together and asked why she took it. It's a promotion for her so I can't blame her. I mentioned that I could switch to another one of the trainers and she said that she could still stop at my building for our training session and get to the other building on time. I will verify that this is what she wants to do on Monday - I don't want her doing it because of my whining.
The rest of the day was uneventful. I went out in the afternoon and walked down the street to the bank. We are having summer weather here in MA and I didn't want to miss it. I hope tomorrow is a better day.
