The 12 Days of Christmas-

Care Partnering Song

On the 1st day of Christmas my Angel Gave to me
(And) a mind set to embrace change
On the 2nd day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me
Grace to let go
On the 3rd day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me
Coping skills
On the 4th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me
Look for the joy
On the 5th day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me
Great Insights
On the 6th day of Christmas the Angel Gave to me
Gratitude and love
On the 7th day of Christmas the Angle Said to me
Savor each moment
On the 8th day of Christmas the Angle Gave to me
Hope and compassion
On the 9th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me
Live to be playful
On the 10th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me
Self care is (cares) important
On the 11th day of Christmas the Angel Said to me
Perfect doesn’t matter
On the 12th day of Christmas the Angel Saw in me
My sanity is back!

    I helped move my mom from a one berdoom independent apartment in a residential care facility to a studio apartment. Mom is running out of money and I quickly. No one really anticipated this. The good news is that she has remained independent longer than we thought. (Mom has Parkinsons and a long term care policy that will kick in when she needs assisted living.) The bad news is that she will probably run out of money before she needs the care. I am exhausted and living in a fog. My sister is helping her unpack and settle in this weekend. She flew in from CA leaving her husband and two young girls who start school on Monday. I don’t think she will get everything done with mom because mom will have to get rid of at least 50% more stuff to really make the small space work. I dread dealing with the left overs when she leaves. Mom has Parkinsons and needs more and more help. I thought I was in the thick of things 8 years ago when she was diagnosed and she moved from her condo. Now I realize that it is really just being for me. The last years of a move, multiple falls, emergency room visits, managing multiple medications well that is seeming easy now. I am not looking forward to the next stage. I am not looking forward to aging myself.
