Caregiving is hard!

It has been a while since I have posted.

While COVID-19 definitely jacked things up…it also put some things in place.

My caregiving journey is full steam ahead…and IT IS HARD!!!

Built Ford Tough is tougher than ever. My folks are funny and I am super blessed to have them. But, I must learn to say NO. Allow myself rest. Make sure that I remain whole.

As an only-child caregiver, there are areas that are very lonely. Sharing memories. Making decisions…am I doing this right? One thing that this period has taught me…it is ok to say “I don’t know” and “I am scared as shit”

I went back and re-read all of my previous posts. Woooooweeeeee…we are something else. And that will not change.

Thanks for following me on this journey…please continue to ride with me.

We are growin’ old together

Watched a movie with my Mom.

It took us THREE HOURS to watch a TWO HOUR movie!!!


FIRST…I needed to find my glasses so that I could figure out the blurry people.
THEN…we kept rewinding so that we could hear what the people were saying.
THEN…we got tired of rewinding, so we decided to turn on closed captioning.
BUT…HOW do you do that???
THEN…we finally figured it out.
THEN…we had to each take a potty break.
THEN…my Mom wanted something to eat.
THEN…we forgot where we were in the movie.
