I Got So Spoiled
My mom lives with us and I am her caretaker. She is 85 years old and has some mobility issues and is showing some early signs of dementia although she hasn't been diagnosed.
I have been complaining to my 3 siblings about this situation and I guess my one sister got tired of hearing about it, so she invited my mom to visit her for 6 weeks.
Let me tell you it was pure bliss during that time. I felt like a free person, as though I was released from jail. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed having our lives back again.
Unfortunately nothing lasts forever, and she came home 2 days again. We are having to readjust to this again and I have to say it's very hard.
If my mom visits her again it won't be until next summer and we don't know how things will be by then.
It's not knowing how long this will last that's the hardest part.
Oh well, at least I did get a break for 6 weeks.
I hope some of you can also get a break.
