Not quite the plan

on finding my groove as a 30 something single girl and caregiver for mom with dementia

No commentary needed.

Conversation with Mom tonight:

Mom: What were your parents like? 

Me: Um… what were yours like?

Mom: Do you have any siblings? Where are you in the order?

I am a mid-30s single girl, trying to climb the ladder, get a date... and make sure Mom takes her meds. It's not where I expected to be. But it's where I am and this blog is about embracing that.

  1. You’re right. No commentary needed, but so many levels of emotion in just those 4 sentences. I hope you both have a good day today with moments of laughter and a touch of joy. Keeping you and your mom in my thoughts as I do all caregivers who share this burden.

  2. These questions are so tough, and are sure to be repeated. I think all we can do is try to express love and compassion with our responses.

  3. Wow. Hugs to you, sweetie. I’m sure this is really rough. Hang in there.

  4. Found this quote that I thought was nice and suited this post …

    “You’re so beautiful,” said Alice. “I’m afraid of looking at you and not knowing who you are.”
    “I think that even if you don’t know who I am someday, you’ll still know that I love you.”
    “What if I see you, and I don’t know that you’re my daughter, and I don’t know that you love me?”
    “Then, I’ll tell you that I do, and you’ll believe me.”
    ― Lisa Genova, Still Alice
