On Saturday we had taken mom up to see the assisted living facility. She says sometimes that she wants to live in one and sometimes she doesn't. I understand. It's difficult. So Saturday she said that she didn't and Sunday she said that she might. We'll see I guess. What I really want is for mom to be okay and to be able to remember things and able to take care of herself. What I really know that I can't do is invite mom to live with us. So that leaves us with these 2 choices, stay home alone as she is (which she says she doesn't like) or move to the assisted living facility (which she says she doesn't want to do). It feels like we are between a rock and a hard place.
I still have not been feeling well and so I took it pretty easy this weekend. I'm not sure why all of the other members of my family felt the need to not do anything ... but anyway. The kids have been trying to bend the rules regarding screen time on Sundays and I have been letting them, but yesterday was the last day. It was a beautiful day outside and they spent the whole day watching TV while I took a much needed nap. Now officially they won't need any screen time on Sundays for about 2 months, having gotten it all done yesterday. If only they could get that far ahead on their school work. :-P
