So many to dos and so little time.

My life has been in so much turmoil for the past year that some days I just want to escape to an island with no phone! We moved my mother here with us over a year ago due to early Alzheimers disease and lack of my siblings wanting to deal with her. Mom is in her own apartment now which has eased the tension in my home and she is doing well. We take her out several times each week but according to her it's not enough. She has definitely become very demanding at times. I know that this illness causes personality changes and I am doing my best to cope.
My daughter who is 23, moved here with us in October but is leaving this weekend to go back to Pennsylvania. She misses her friends and home. I am going to miss her so much. I will see her a couple times a year when we visit, but it's not the same as having her here with me.
My sister-in law has been given 3 to 6 months to live. She has metastatic breast cancer and my hubby and I have been trying to help her as well. She has a son here but he doesn't want to give up his lifestyle to do what he needs to do for his mother. Hubby and I are so disgusted with him right now. My husband is also stressed out and depressed about his eldest sister. They are very close and their mother passed away from the same thing, so it's bringing up a lot of sad memories for him.
Needless to say, I have not been on track with much lately. I haven't gained anything back, but I haven't made any progress either. I have to take care of me so I can be able to take care of everyone else!
