Two Days and Too Busy

United States
March 31, 2016 4:17pm CST
The past two days have just sucked up my time and I had lots of things to do and didn't have much opportunity to sit here at the computer and chat. Yesterday flew by and I don't even remember what I was doing and today I had to take my mom for her doctor appointment and that just sucked up a good part of the day. It takes both my daughter and myself to get her to the doctor and it's an ordeal and exhausting. Now it's time to cook dinner and I realized another day has slipped by without much interacting from me. Here we are at the end of another month....it's probably redundant to say that time is flying by. Hope everyone is having a good day and I was going to wish you all a great weekend but realized that it's still only Thursday and I thought it was Friday (DUH) I think I need a vacation!!

Hope you are able to get a vacation soon, sounds like a rough day to say the least.

A vacation is probably not in the foreseeable future

A vacation might indeed be needed. Don't feel lonely I was not on for three days as I had other things going on in my life but it is good to be back. Have a good day today.

I don't know if your Mum is in a wheelchair but Vince and I had to take Mum to hospitals and doctors and manoeuvring the wheelchair was a real hassle. Hope your days get a bit easier.

My mom uses a walker but taking her anywhere can turn into an ordeal

The amount of time spent driving to and from doctors appointments, and then the endless waiting seems to use up so much of our days.

@Marilynda1225 my dad has a monthly Drs appointment. It is a 45 minute drive to get there. Then we rarely wait long, but the appointments run around 45 minutes, then another 45 minutes to get home. If we need to stop for bloodwork or at the pharmacy it takes even longer. Every now and again we end up waiting for a long time to actually see the dr.

You do need a vacation for sure. So much for you to do, but glad your daughter can help with your mom. My sister and I came to the conclusion this year that no way can only one of us get Dad, soon to be 95, to and from emergency rooms, walk-in clinics, hospitals and doctor's appointments.

My mom is 94 & taking her anywhere these days is difficult... I don't know how much longer I'll be able to keep doing this

This month just flew right by. Sometimes we just have other things to do than be on the computer.

My life at the moment involves stacking firewood as my son splits it, and clearing the limb and leaf mess that seems to be unending. At least I'm getting lots of exercise and fresh air!

I feel the same! But I have to say that I prefer full days when comparing to boring days. It looks like you finished some of your tasks and hopefully tomorrow you can have some more time for yourself!

Some days are just like that. There just so much to do that we don't see the time go by. Hopefully you'll be able to have some time off soon.

Oh vacation sounds wonderful! If you could go anywhere and do anything, where would you go? What would you do? I should post this as a discussion! lol

I have had a busy week and it is going by so fast. Hard to believe that we are at the end of another month.
