"I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was." Do you remember this Toby Keith song? I'm humming it today as I tend to things around the house.
Lil' Mama is sick. She went to the doctor Friday and he diagnosed her with strep and said she was to stay far away from Haylee Kate for three days. I understand that. She's taking her meds and beginning to feel like a person again.
I tended to Haylee Kate with nary a "hic-up" in the day from morning til bedtime.
I let a lot of things around the house ride, and spent my time caring for HK.
Mister is helping.
I'm still in my pajamas, and counting the hours till tomorrow morning when Lil' Mama will be freed to take care of HK! We didn't make it to church.
Yes, it's true, "I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good [one day} as I ever was". Day two and three? Not so much.
We're not the typical family.
I've recently become Caregiver/Guardian to my Mom as she deals with Dementia. I'm married, have three grown children and also an 18 yr. old daughter who lives at home and recently made us grandparents to her beautiful new baby girl. That means that we have four generations of women under the same roof. Mister and I have been married forever. . .It's not the life we dreamed about, nor the one we would have chosen, but most days we find a way to laugh and bumble our way through. We're enjoying the journey, even with the unexpected side trips along the way. FOLLOW ME, if you dare! LOL!
