I did not get on Phoebe last night. I was tired and crabby and probably should have but I didn't make it happen. The last few nights I have been going to bed rather early (by 9:00 p.m.) so I have plenty of time in the morning to get ready and prepare for the day with coffee, making my lunch, etc. I have now proven to myself that I can get up that early and function. I am not a particularly cheerful person in the morning but if I have had enough sleep then I do okay as long as coffee is in the mix =)
Tonight, I need to go to my mom's house to pay a bill for her. We are both struggling with the adjustments that her vision loss has presented. I am really trying to be patient and understanding of her situation but my nerves are already tested with everything else going on. I snapped at her yesterday and felt bad about it. My intention is just to go to her house, pay the bill and go straight home. My brother and his family and DOGS are coming in a few weeks so I plan on talking to my brother about her situation. Maybe he can get through to her better then I can. Until next time...
