I am Drained
My mom (almost 85) lives with us. She wants my constant attention and I just don't have the energy or desire to give it to her. Yesterday I spent about 5 hours with her which was enough. We went out for dinner and when we came home I got on my computer and did a few things.
She sat there watching me, clearly annoyed and finally went to bed without saying a word to me.
I didn't care. I continued what I was doing and I was glad she went to her room.
At one time I wouldn't have dared do such a thing, but with each day with each month that passes by, it's getting easier and I'm caring less and less.
