I am amazed I slept as well as I did last night. Until 4 this morning I was out, then the mind wakes and starts "running". I do have coping techniques to stop this put it takes a while to settle. My mother is moving into a retirement community that is geared to the level of care each resident needs. For now, she will be living in a cottage for independent living. She made a comment yesterday about passing the torch to the next in line to take care of their parents and how hard it is for the parent to turn over the control but she is ready for me to take over now. (Now we all know what set me off) So, now I have a list two pages long that needs to be done before next Monday when the movers come; and, at the same time, trying to figure out a way to make her understand that she needs to making alot of these decisions. I really am not whining, just overwhelmed. No wonder my heart starts to pound, I can't breathe and my mind shuts down.
On the light side, I had a wonderful night with my Kelby on the floor by my side, waking me up at 7 this morning dancing because he is with his "Mommy" again. I miss putting my swimsuit on this morning and hunting for seaglass. I wanted to find a green piece.
