(I've prolly posted it before, but this cute pic of my Sweet dog always makes me smile...)

Wow, it's Monday again.

Boyfriend and i went to my Mom's this past weekend. She lives in Beaufort, SC with her husband of 13 years. She has Alzheimer's, and i'm beginning to think he does too.

I noticed Mom's "brain cramps" (as Mary's mom called them) are getting worse since i last saw her in January. She's always been "ditzy", but now she's forgetting what we just talked about 20 minutes ago!

I woke up at 2:20 last night in a cold sweat about her, and i couldn't get back to sleep!

I was tossing and turning, worrying about what in the world will i do if he passes before she does! I can't imagine she'll be happy anywhere other than in her own house with all her own things.

I don't know what to do!

Boyfriend says "One day at a time", but that doesn't help me at 2:30 in the morning!

I think i'm going to write a letter to Mom's husband, asking him what their plan is so far...

It's REALLY bothering me!!!

I'm going to the gym. Weights and walking should help me a bit. If only my Tuesday Yoga teacher would teach EVERY day...!

Smile! Things are bound to get better!

If they don't, at least i have Yoga!



  1. I know i have more than Yoga!
    That was my lame attempt at humor...

    Not much humor here today...
    A bit too much reality.

  2. The boyfriend is probably right. You cannot deal in "what ifs." Take it one day at a time.

  3. I love the dog picture too... it is great...
    what a scary situation with your mom....I dont have any good advice for you, wish I did.....
