I was a single mom with a young child when my mom had dementia so I did not do much direct care but we visited a lot. My mom eventually did not know me but DD always put a smile on her face and DD would dance and sing for my mom, curl up in bed next to her, and hold her an ensure to drink. I have a photo of their hands together, my mom's aged hands being carefully held by DD's little smooth hand. You are a blessing to your parents!my weekend was busy, mostly good busy as it was more social than doing chores!Saturday I bought groceries for me and some for my sister and her husband. Her husband has just been diagnosed with an extremely aggressive cancer so if you are a praying kind, please do pray. He was just in the hospital for a week and now has to get strong enough to start chemo, but this aggressive cancer won't wait while he gets stronger. my sister has some chronic health conditions and they are a very frail household right now and also have limited resources. So I had a nice visit with them just to give them a break and some relaxation and some fun.Then I walked puppy and then I met a friend for dinner who I have not seen in person in years! It was so great to catch up, we were pretty close in the old days and went on several big vacations together. so those four activities pretty much ate up all of SaturdaySunday I went to church and I can't remember the rest of the day! I did make a proper dinner using the oven -- instead of defaulting to toast. I paid some bills and ran some errands, walked puppy. did some laundry. something else too !!work is ok this week. Chaos is at a conference!! Working on my Big Scary Project week before last made some dormant part of me come alive and I am more focused on work and getting more done. Maybe I am finally getting used to DD being gone and my brain is coming back? Not sure.I do want to focus on work as we have so much to do. sometimes I feel so sluggish there. it can be a deadening place. we just had another reorg. it is distracting.today was rush to work (rush as I stayed in bed until the last possible minute!), worked, a somewhat productive day, home for lunch to let puppy and boycat out, play with puppy, eat lunch, get animals back in, back to work. in the afternoon I worked on a project that has been stressing me out that it has been sitting there gathering dust. glad I made progress. left on time, walked puppy. If I zip right home, I can get puppy to our park about half an hour before sunset, and I can walk about 20 minutes after sunset before park starts to get too gloomy and deserted. I was the last person there today and I don't really like that. we saw some deer and that threw puppy into a wild burst of excitement, jumping, straining on leash, biting on leash ...such an energetic girl.came home with a plan to do stuff but instead I talked to a friend which was good for me. I need to pay a bill before midnight! I did the dishes. did litter this morning.gnite all!
