No Disrespect Intended

Allow me to update quickly. I mean no disrespect to my father. Sometimes it can be a little difficult. So talking about it helps. For example, tonight... when I put him to bed. What do you mean your legs are not in the right spot. Now that I have moved them where you told me to they appear to be in the exact same position. I do not understand and if we are not careful I am going to dump you onto the floor... is that better? OK. Good. Sweet dreams and I will see you in the morning.


So what is the purpose of this blog you ask? Well... it's to share my thoughts and feelings about being a caregiver, a wife, a mother and the controller of a multi-million dollar corporation which is trying to be the last one standing in this crazy world we are living in right now.

I have but a few minutes to spare tonight before it is time to put Dad to bed. So I will start with this opening post and then turn in for the evening... I probably will not be able to sleep. I will be thinking of all the things that I want to share with you. Will you understand.. truly? Maybe or maybe not. Regardless, I hope you at least find some enjoyment from reading what I have to share.

To my fellow caregivers, hang in there. You know who you are and you know what I mean. Do you have a strong support system? That is what everyone asks... well tonight that system is a glass of wine. :)

Did I mention that my husband said to me tonight.. "you are not a writer"? I guess I kept that side to myself. Dr. Dyer told me recently, when I happened to get through during a show, "don't complain and don't explain". OK, easy enough.

Well goodnight for now. Time to put Dad to bed. Sweet dreams to all.
