The late summer view

Summer is coming to an end and that means Buckeye football is right around the corner.  As a diehard Buckeye fan, I am really excited to see what happens next!  Go Bucks!!

Our caregivers started June 2nd and they are angels from heaven.  I knew when I interviewed the owner of the company I had found the right people.  The only question I really wanted answered by the applicants was, why do you do this, and she said it was her calling and she had been doing it for 20 years. We now have one of her employees and she lovingly takes care of mom Monday through Friday.  She has been such a huge help to me, giving me some relief and a different look at our situation.

Having someone at the house every week day makes it possible for me to take care of me.  This is something I am not very good at doing, but I am a work in progress.  I walk a lot at work, so I get to the gym for strength training. I also go to Starbucks or the library and read.  I am learning to enjoy time with myself.  This is new to me, but I am learning to enjoy it now.  This is, of course, on my days off, Tuesday and Thursday.

Mom turns 90 in September and I am having a party for her with the help of some of my best friends. It's a big milestone and we're going to celebrate! Of course the theme is OSU, mom is a fan too.  So, we will have cake, punch, nuts and Buckeyes and sing Happy Birthday with family and friends.
