Can't turn it off
My brain! It's going non stop. Is it Friday yet? That gives you an idea of my week so far :(. Warning - I might get a little whiny here. Things started to go downhill Sunday. I got a last minute work commitment Monday and today. The problem was Mom's birthday was yesterday and I had arranged for the little gathering of her old buddies. Nothing fancy, just cake, ice cream and tea. But I had to work.
I felt guilty about not being there so I didn't sleep much Sunday night. That makes for a long day. My session lasted until 8pm. I was tired, guilty, and crabby and honestly I hoped all the fuss was over at home. I knew by then that Mom would be in not a good state. Her cognitive skills slide downward in the evening.
But after a 12 hour work day, I arrived home and it was "standing room only". I should be grateful her friends had gathered around for her. But the truth is I wanted everyone to go home. I'm sure their intent was to be thoughtful, so they all waited for me to get home before they had the cake and treats. I had so hoped it would all be over when I got home. Yes, I realize how bad this sounds but I'm just being honest here. They left just after 9:30.
I was back in that work session all day today after the 2nd virtually sleepless night. When I got home at supper time I was so tired I could have just sat down and cried for no reason.
Tonight I'm just going to unwind with a long, hot bath and maybe a little hooking. I haven't checked blogs for a few days but I'll catch up later in the week.
