My days this week seem to be mostly on the road. Now in addition to my other normal trips, I include a 2-3 hour visit with mom. The trip out to her rehab is lovely, but it take 20-25 minutes each way. Last week I visited mom every day, making sure her adjustment was going smoothly. This week I planned to visit it most days - but skip one or two.
That was what I planned. But come the end of the week I will miss seeing her for 3 days in a row.
I got a call this morning that my Uncle (my most favorite Uncle) had died in Florida. Today has been very hard. I couldn't seem to restrain my tears. So many fond memories from my youth of visits to my Aunt and Uncle's house flooded my brain today. And with each memory, tears of sorrow at his passing.
This Uncle was married to my mom's sister. They would have celebrated 57 years of marriage tomorrow! So much sadness.
The viewing is in Florida at the end of the week. Since mom is safely housed in rehab, my sister and I will travel to Florida for the viewing.
So the week has been hard on a few levels. I am bone tired and emotionally drained.
I hope this thunder cloud that persists in following me this year passes on soon.
I just need a break.
Blogging will be sparse for awhile. Time has suddenly become pretty tight this week.
