Two weeks back from Canada and it seems like another world. Strange since it seems so near I can almost reach out and touch it, and yet so far... impossibly far away. and time seems to be sliding through my fingers...
I have gotten myself on an exercise routine and this week finally I am getting it going on a regular basis. Already i am seeing results.
We got home well Friday night and after a shower straight to bed. Saturday we all felt fine but soon I was taking cat naps to catch up on my sleep. Most the the plants are fine but my poor cilantro was looking very sad and on its last legs. I watered it and now I will hope for the best.
We have two more days of holiday and then it is back to work. I am looking forward to getting back to work - I have lots of plans.
The end of our Canada trip is drawing near. We have eaten, drunk, and sated ourselves. We have visited family, climbed mountains, played in playgrounds, seen the land, gone to dinosaur museums and watched movies.
It's been a perfect holiday. Everything went not as planned, but even better. Even my jet lag was better than on previous trips. How can you ask for more?
I am in Canada. With family. We have had a great vacation so far. Perfect, in fact. It is hard to imagine a vacation that could go so well. I had some hard things to do on this vacation - not many but they were hard.
She has Alzheimer's disease. That is why it is hard. Hard for me, because this disease changes a person into a different person. It is also hard because the reason I came was to suss out the assisted living that Mom has had to move into.
And I am satisfied. It is not the best place to live in, but under the circumstances, it is pretty good.
