I am so tired. Still trying to catch up (start) papers on Mom and plan the trip there. Gotta get into the doctor.

Sometimes people forget that everyone needs their own time to do what they want or need to do.

At dinner, Sherry said to go do what I needed to do last night. It lasted maybe 5 minutes. Right now the girls went to some play place. They will be gone about 2 hours and 1 already passed. Get busy.

Helena was up when I got back here this morning from Sarah's. Yesterday I was able to get a few things done before she woke up. Sherry is talking about me not watching Helena. It would break my heart right now.

Class was enjoyable last night. I know I need to put more time into homework, though. I was exhausted after and went to bed at 8:30. Still tired today...not sure why.

Sherry's still stressed about everything. We took clothes in to sell to a consignment shop and they didn't want any. I will have to see how I can get creative.

Sherry's been snappy and on edge. She is at least thinking budget now and getting more practical. I hope to have time over the weekend to start talking budget/schedule with her.

Sarah asked if I would take them to the airport this morning 4:30 am Should've known Randy - 4:15 and antsy. They're going to the Dominican Republic for a week and I will be watching the dogs at night. TV!

Lots of bags, boxes, etc in Helena's room We'll take our time I think it will take me a few weeks to catch up on my sleep.

My mind is still reeling on all the questions I have gotten on what's going on, what will I be doing, what has Sherry decided, etc... I still have it in my mind that I won't have to make a decision until Sherry does. Sarah even said she missed me when I was back up in Detroit with Mom My heart tells me that I want to be near the girls.

Mom won't be on earth that long...hate to say it, but it's just a gut feeling. Sherry asked about how I felt not being near her. Mom and I have spent a tremendous amount of time together the past two years We talked about everything and been through a lot of downs. There's not much more to say to each other She knows I will always be there for her and that I have her back.

Tired and cranky from traveling. My counselor called when I was driving and never let me get a word in edgewise. Apparently I missed an appointment Friday when I was driving up to Michigan They won't schedule an appointment with the doctor until I see Susie. She said that she has a lot of other patients a couple times She said it's my responsibility to remember them I started to say that I understand that I'm not the only patient and it is my responsibility to remember and to explain what happened She wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise I liked her, she gave me some good suggestions, but it really was extenuating circumstances this time I will write a letter tomorrow

I didn't sleep well last night either. I'm back in stress mode; Mom's house was a mess. Lots of papers to go through, garbage to take out, grabbed what weeds I could. Mom's in good spirits. I haven't talked much to Tim.

I worry about the conversation that Tim and I will have. I feel like he doesn't think we have a relationship. When I try to do things, he's not interested. I am definitely nervous.

When I talked to Tim yesterday, he said he was working on the house and seemed fine. When I talked to him today, he sounded terrible. He said he had a bad night and didn't go to work. He finally told me that he thought Sherry and Helena left because of something he did. We need to talk; he just keeps putting it off. It reminds me of Daryl and Sherry. He said it's not like we are anxious to see each other every day; that we don't do anything. I suggest stuff. He says no. The last time he made plans to play euchre with Tom and James, he said he was looking for a fourth. It really hurt my feelings.

Sherry is getting a little more confidence back in herself. She's starting to see that Daryl may not be perfect for her. If we could just get her more active and make friends.

The day was a busy one: garage sales, returning items, swimming, walking with Helena. Sherry's 20-minute talk with friends ended up lasting 2.5 hours. Helena ended up on overload and Sherry ended up not feeling well because of what she drank.

For this being a "day off" it sure didn't feel like it. I think I was 4 hours shopping and putting things away. And I only went to 2 stores.

The girls went out a little last night. I guess that they were saying that I'm really the one in limbo right now. And it's true. It's not like I can go back up to Tim or that we can talk much. I haven't visited friends yet. I'm not checking in on Mom.

But I am with my girls.

I mentioned to Sherry that I needed to get out, too. She agreed. I mentioned my plans to go to Guntersville on Sunday. Sarah stopped by and they made plans for her to come over on Sunday to clean the yard. Which means that if they want to do that, I will have to be around to be with Helena.

The past 4 nights, I have awakened with strange dreams. The 1st: I left Helena in a truck while I ran into school to get a test. When I came out, social services was there. 2nd: Mom was giving out lots of presents to everyone but gave me one. 3rd: I can't remember now. 4th: we went to visit Bonnie and everyone left without me, stranding me in Dearborn.

I went to a church that's only 5 minutes away this morning. It was nice. I had almost forgotten what it was like to go to a church that's not Total Ministry. I will get used to it again.

The girls were cranky. I was going to take Helena outside, but Sherry decided to try a nap instead.

The girls left last night. Yesterday was crazy trying to get them ready. It's too quiet this morning. It seems so weird and quiet this morning. I've been with Sherry and Helena for 8 weeks.

Barb has stirred the pot again. Harry decided to tell me yesterday instead of the day it happened. It always takes the wind out of my sail even though I know she's a ticking time bomb. It will do me good to get away for awhile.

I sat there last night trying to take my class, aggravated that the computer wouldn't do what I wanted it to, Sherry was looking for something, Tim was talking away at me...and then Tim asked me why I was frazzled. Sherry said "The class is just for fun, right?"

I don't think that there are many things I really want to do and try to follow through with. Do I?

I kept getting really sharp abdominal pains yesterday - a reminder to kick back and simplify.

My stomach hurt all night. At first, I knew it was my hernia. Then I wasn't sure. I think I'm okay now.

It was a long day and night. Sherry woke up with the flu. I spent the day trying to get Helena to eat, do laundry, and keep her busy. Helena started throwing up at night, along with her diarrhea. We took her into the doctor this morning thinking she was getting dehydrated. He took her off the antibiotics - woo hoo. She drank some pedialyte when we got home and they are sleeping right now.

Sherry told me that she and Helena will be going back down with Sarah for at least 2 weeks after the baptism (which is a week from Sunday). I am so attached to Helena that it's not even funny. I know Grandmas love their grandchildren, but is mine too much?

Poor Sherry doesn't know what to think of me asking questions of doctors. She can't remember all that I went through when she and Sarah were little. She wasn't there in Alabama and she wasn't here last winter with Mom. I can't help but ask questions. I've learned enough and seen enough to know somewhat of what is going on.

The arrogant er doctor wrote the prescription wrong and I noticed it after it was filled. She wrote 10 ml 4 times a day. The dropper they gave us was 5 ml. Right away, I told her to only give Helena 5 and then call her doctor. I was right. Not only was it supposed to be 5 ml, but it was only supposed to be 3 times a day. A letter to the hospital is in order on this one.

Poor Helena is still sick. We spent Sherry's first mother's day at an urgent care and then the emergency room. We got home about midnight.

Good luck with those things. Just read that post about the crime in your area. Personally, I moved away from a beautiful beach side town due to issues of crime (I also met the love of my life and moved to be near him)

However, I would definitely recommend living in an area where you feel safe, it has greatly increased my peace of mind.

Helen doesn't feel good. She's got a terrible yeast infection diaper rash and a sore throat. I still hate when little ones don't feel good.

I had to go to court this morning. I got the ticket changed from speeding - which I wasn't - to impeding traffic. The ticket cost a little more but there will be no points on my license.

It was a long day of trying to make decisions. We went with Mom to an assisted living place. She seemed to enjoy herself. But, we are trying to get her to realize that she needs to be there - there's not much choice.

Sherry is so unsure of everything. She ended up not going to that interview today: a wise choice. Sarah and I both want her down in Alabama.

A little 4-year-old was a a park on 14 and Little Mack with the mother last night at about 9. A car drove by and the little one got shot in the head. He was transferred from McLaren to Children's Hospital this morning.

The pharmacy where I get my mom's prescriptions was robbed at gunpoint less than an hour after I was there last week. Neither Sherry nor I feel comfortable having Helena in this area.

Harper still didn't feel good. I don't want to bring anything home to Helena. Jen did set up an interview for Sherry at the restaurant. We got talking about it, and we'd probably lose money if she worked. I still don't really want to continue babysitting for them, though. Things to do, places to go, good times to be had with my girls.

Jennifer and Leon are closer to becoming foster parents. They would need me to fill out paperwork and be willing to go with the flow and babysit whoever they have. I also found out after I got there yesterday that Harper was sick the night before. Not good. I am not sure I would be able to fill out the paperwork and not have the powers that be find out. I am not sure if I would be able to handle children who are stressed and in limbo. It was difficult yesterday for about a half hour to handle Harper when she woke up crying hard for her mom for about 20 minutes. And as I tell Sherry, My girls are my priority.

Helena is such a joy. I hate to have to go places and not spend the time with her. I know we can't be together all the time, though. But I tell Sherry that. She hasn't had time for herself much since she's been here.

We seemed to do a little better yesterday. Today, we were late for church. We still seem to be trying to figure out what we both want to do. I think it's getting a ;little clearer for us, but it's still pretty foggy.

I am doing a little better today. I got some cleaning in, some laundry, was at my Mom's and got some steps in. It's 1 pm and I just got on the computer, but then I was spending a little too much time on it anyway.

Patty,
Lately I've been feeling tired too. I think we both need to eat more fiber and something that will give use energy. Wouldn't it be great if they have the powder energy drink or something.
I've been sleeping on and off for the past few days and no energy at all either. I have things I need to do but just "lazy" to do it.
Sometime I have to push myself to get things done. I hope we have a better week.

On one hand, I am getting up in the morning and getting my chores done before getting on the computer.
But, on the other hand, I am not getting up early enough to start my steps/workout and sometimes come up short. I'm not stressed about getting things done, but I feel as if I drop the ball sometimes.Gotta fine tune this.
