Denise, that is awesome! Have fun planning a well-deserved break!

All the “starts” that I’ve been thinking of are actually continuations, but at a new level. My main goal for August: start the next phase of — to borrow the lyrics of Betsy Rose — “coming into my own” (from her song “Coming Into My Years”). :-)

Looong entry coming to that effect.

In August, I am going to start getting up an hour earlier so that I can take a walk before breakfast. Imagine that, doing something for myself… WAAAAAAAA HOOOOOOOO! :)

In August I am going to try and start taking better care of myself and resting more (f that’s possible!) :)

I started a few things today. I sent an e-mail to three women I know in three different organizations that work with people with dementia in various ways. I brought up three things I’d like to start or help with and need assistance getting started:
1. equipping doctors with information to hand to patients receiving any type of dementia diagnosis
2. connect with others like myself who are still raising children and are a caregiver for someone with dementia
3. an ambassador/tour guide program so that caregivers for a recently diagnosed person can have someone to contact to help them through those early, scary days
