The one thing I've noticed since caregiving for mom full time with the exception of work is how fast time is going. It seems like I start my day getting my mom dressed washed and breakfast of course and then end my day getting her ready for bed. Work in between. It seems like there's always something to do. I start the day saying ok I'm going to do this today and before I know it one thing after another and then it's time for bed already. I mean tomorrow it'w March 1st already. I try and value the time I have with my mom as I know she won't be around forever. Am still trying to figure out how to do this and still have a little time for me besides work> i read the posts and can relate to most of what people say. Sometimes it"s soooooo frustrating soemtimes it"s rewarding caring for my mom. Am still trying to find that balance but am not sure that I will find it. I try to stop and smell the roses but before I know it the day is over and time to start another one.
