This weekend I went away for a weekend without mom which was the first time in several years.  I had hoped to get some rest as mom has been in a semi-stable enough state for me to leave her with her husband.  I’m not sure the weekend was restful as it really became over packed with folks who wanted to visit with me.  But it was good.

It was a short weekend and now I’m home.  I’ve only been home a couple of hours and it’s been surprising how much work it is to be a caregiver.  It’s up and down every couple of minutes to get this and that.  As the song goes, “It’s a Climb.”  Worth it all, but definitely a climb.
