Sorry to hear about your moms, Janis and Kim and your son, too, Janis. I hope everyone gets better quickly so that you ladies can get some downtime.

I didn't have a great summer either due to the unending cough and cooler/wetter than normal temps this year. I'm off on stress leave from work right now and am starting my third week off. I'm okay most of the time but have found that big buildings like the movie theatre and the grocery store make me feel anxious and thinking about work does the same. It's a really weird feeling about such everyday things.

My name is Joanna not Joanne, please and thank you.

Kimmy, sorry to hear about your Mom's illness. Hope she is getting well.

We have had a lot of stress this summer too. A situation with my special needs son caused us to cancel our planned vacation. My mother has become more frail and has fallen a few times and been taken to the Emergency Department and been admitted to the hospital for falls and also for shortness of breath. These were followed by short stays in rehab.

Last week my son visited my sister and her husband for a week, where he helped them split logs and clear brush, etc. That gave my DH and I a few days to escape to southern Maine.

I worked overtime most of the summer (last week was my first week back to normal hours). My husband started a new job in May so he doesn't have any time accrued (since we want to cruise in Dec).

I am taking two days around US Labor Day for some extra R&R. I am planning on spending most of one day with my bff. But that's all I have planned.

My summer was very stressful. My mom was critically ill and in an ICU facility for 8 weeks. Now she's been in a rehab facility for almost the same amount of time. My relaxing summer I had envisioned did not materialize.

However, I still have my Mom and I need to focus on that very positive fact. I'm leaving again for Mississippi where I'm from to help our and take my Mom to her doctor's appointment.

I'm just hoping for a less eventful fall. :)

It's the last week of August. Did you have a good summer? Or, do you have more plans before the warm days are done?
