Day 15 ~ An Average Day

Day 15 ~ An average day:

My day begins around 07:55, when I wake to give my Mom her 08:00 medicine. I sometimes have to fight the urge to crawl back into bed, and there are days I can’t resist. Once I’m up, I grab a glass of water with juiced grapefruit and lemon, then a few pieces of fruit (a peach and/or an apricot, usually). After this, I do my 15-minute yoga routine, and follow with my run/walk. Once I’m home, I get breakfast ready for my Mom and Elflings. Then I shower, shower my Mom, then my Elflings, and we all get ready. If we have to do any running around, we do that, otherwise we take my Mom for a walk, or play things by ear based on what she feels like doing. At 12:00, I/we give my Mom her medicine, and start making lunch. I may have some of what I make (especially pea butter and jam – YUM-OH!), but I prefer fresh fruit and veg and a glass of Mean Green Juice. In the afternoon, I sit before my laptop with another glass of Mean Green, and tease a blog post or two out of my brain. If I’m really lucky, I might even have an idea blossom for the book I’d eventually love to write. At 16:00, I/we give my Mom her medicine, and start figuring out what’s for supper (sometimes, I need more time/motivation to come up with an idea, but not everyday). My Mister comes home around 17:00, and we help each other with supper prep (he unloads the dishwasher and we chat while supper comes together). I eat with my family, and have a another glass of Mean Green. After supper, I load the dishwasher, run it, make another batch of Mean Green juice, and tidy up. At 20:00, I/we give my Mom her last dose of the day, and we wind down. Around 21:00, my Mom goes to bed and we all tuck her in. After this, I’ll normally sip my last glass of Mean Green for the day, and knit while my Mister and I cuddle on the couch to watch an episode of Dexter, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, X-Files, or an interesting movie. Somewhere between 23:30 to 01:00, I finally decide to go to bed (I know, I’m a glutton for punishment). At 07:55, my day begins again.

      My Mom has Parkinson’s, but she’s doing better here than she was in the “old home” this past Winter. She definitely cannot live independently anymore, and I’m glad to have her here with us. ♥
