Ever have one of those days

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

Yeah one of those days that seems to go on and on. I still haven't found my new workout CD's and I'm getting behind in my workouts too. I have felt so overwhelmed lately that I have found myself snapping at DH and almost to the point of wanting to sit down and cry. I wish I could, it just might let out a lot of stress from inside me.
Today I'm feeling a little better and a little more tolerable of things. It's been a month since my MIL has moved in with us and it's hard at times, very hard. I feel bad about how I feel at times that I lost my alone time. It seems like I lost the spark I had in me about being retired and looking forward to all the things I wanted to my crafts. My craft/sewing area is downstairs and I feel guilty if I'm not sitting with her. I use to have a morning routine including my workout and now that's all changed and I just have to get back to it. I use to love getting up, getting my cup of coffee and sitting in the living room with my book for about an hour before having breakfast.....then go workout. It's funny what you miss when you can't do it.

Thanks for letting me vent. Please don't think I don't love my mil, because I do.

Well, gotta go get my cup of tea and get ready for the biggest loser.....that's one show she watches with me.

    It is amazing how we let things alter our routines, huh? I fully realize that having your MIL come to live with you is not a little thing - quite the opposite. It has to be so hard to try and take time for yourself when you feel like you should be with her. Who knows... she might like a little alone time too?

    Just find a way, lady. You are way too important to give up on in order to care for someone else. Only by being happy and healthy are we ever truly able to give to others.

    God Bless you.

    I agree, you do need your ME time. While she naps, or something. My mother is legally blind and I buy her books on cd which she plays on tv just like movies. She listens for hours and loves it. If you MIL ever enjoyed reading, she might like that. It's a lot like listening to a radio show the way they did when she was young... Karen

    BYOB. Be your own boss. You need your "ME" time. Take what you can get, even if it is 30 Minutes. emoticon emoticon

    Do you have to sit with her all the time? Would it be possible to leave her alone to enjoy your morning coffee? There has to be something she still has interest in - music, looking at old pictures, anything? If she was in a nursing home she would not have a constant companion. You simply MUST find a way to get a little ME time, to save your sanity!
