As I Walk Through The Valley

Today was a good day for Mom. The garbage truck woke her at 6:30, she thought someone was knocking on her door. She was hungry but went back to sleep and didn't get up until 10:00. I made her coffee and a good breakfast, which again she ate it all today. After breakfast she stayed up another hour reading the paper.

Mom slept through the afternoon until almost 5:00. She got up just as Paula was getting home and needed help carrying things in. It was a bit of a train wreck, but we managed and got dinner ready for her. She again ate everything on her plate and read the paper for about an hour before heading back to bed.

Like I said it was a pretty good day for Mom. Actually it's been a pretty good week for her.

The problem today wasn't Mom, it was me. Even though I've had a very productive week, the isolation of this job hit me hard. I haven't left the house during the day all week and it just got to me today.

I pushed through it and posted four other blog posts throughout the day and worked on a plan for next week. That means the day wasn't a total loss. My other blogs are doing great, I'm over 6000 monthly page views on so that means I'm on track to break 10,000 by years end. That's a good thing and I should be pretty happy right now, but I'm still feeling the effects of the isolation.

Well tomorrow is another day and Paula is working from home so it will be a better day for me.
