Color? or Black and White?
Lately, all I've been is tired.
Bone tired. Mentally tired. Just plain tired.
And if you Google it, there are all kinds of "helps"
and reasons and excuses about being tired.
But when life becomes just a little bit too much
we all get tired!
It's challenging to have things constantly
bombarding us, changing up our plans for
the day, making us shift gears in the middle
of the racetrack. I'm not only dealing with
the day to day things that need to be taken care of,
but also the "what ifs" and "whens" for the things that
will happen in the future. Taking care of Mom is my
priority - I'm sure that's what Dad would want.
The rest of things are secondary.
I've a list of stuff that needs to be taken care of when
I visit Mom - check book signature card, banking and
medical information written down so I can deal with as
much as possible long distance, if need be. And a list of
questions that need to be answered re: their trust. My sister
takes care of all that for Mom because she lives nearby.
But that won't always be the case ..... :/
And it will be my job to step up.
And I like to have answers to questions before I have to .....
thank goodness there's a weekend coming up, a chance to unwind!
if only for a few hours
