A Few Steps Backwards
Wednesday, October 02, 2013
I have been working on my schedule (or lack of) all year now. I had felt that I was making progress in September. I would pick only a few things to try to accomplish each day and I was doing okay at getting them done.
Then, last week, my Mom had a bad week and I was over there helping her out. She had another bad day yesterday and I was back over there. I will be going again today. As with most people, I know that Mom is getting older and needs more help. What I let happen was that I didn't pay that much attention to it at first. It hit me over the head yesterday and I found it easy to pick up on her stress and run with it. I was up until after midnight.
This morning, I can still feel a little of the stress. I will exercise, walk and journal today to get a grip on it. I now know that my October schedule will include at least one or two days of going to Mom's to help out. One of these days, I will get a grip on my schedule.
To those whose parents are still with us: love them, help them, and make sure to take care of yourselves.
