Facing the Music

Hello! Good God it's been forever since I've posted! I have had so many posts brewing in my head and I need to get back to blogging badly.

I was off of work the last two months. My mom has gotten stronger everyday but the dementia has gotten worse. She is in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's. She still recognizes me but not every time. I took the opportunity to tell her how much I love her, thanked her for being my mommy and my friend. I told her I'm so grateful for her and my dad and the fact they adopted me and gave me such a wonderful life. I told her I am a good person because of her and my dad's guidance. As difficult as it was to have that conversation, I am glad I had the opportunity to say it to her while she is still able to understand. One of the hardest things I've ever had to do but well worth it.

During the time off, I gained 8 lbs. basically a pound a week. It was beer and French fries I tell ya. I'm already down 3 lbs. since going back to work. At work, I'm walking 5 miles a day at a minimum so that really helps. I didn't weigh myself until the end of last week because I was a little worried but it is so much better to know. That is how my weight got out of control before. That and elastic waistbands.

I'm still fostering the kittens. It's a full house but they are pretty entertaining. Bogey made friends with them and they all have fun together. Bogey is 10 months old and the kids are 7 months. The big drawback is the litter box since they are indoor but they live much longer that way. It's worth it to me in the long run.

That is about all for now. I really want to post regularly again but since I'm not in front of a computer anymore, it makes it more difficult but I need to get back in the grove. Right now I'm using my iPad Mini. Seems to work okay so far. Until next time...


  1. I'm glad you're alive and well. I'm sorry about your Mom. I know how hard that is, but it's good that you got to have that heart to heart with her. hugs

  2. Good to hear from you again. Glad you were able to tell your mom how you feel, no regrets!

  3. Sorry about what you are going through. I think it's great you got to tell your mom those important things. Sending love...


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
