    One day at a time and during those really tough days, it’s one minute at a time.

    It’s a heartbreaking situation. It’s awful to be the one who seems to be standing between your mom and her house. None of this is your fault. You’re doing the tough and wise thing–you’re ensuring she’s safe and has what she needs.

    Would you feel comfortable talking with her about how much she wants to go home? Perhaps you could simply say, “I’m grateful that you are here with me. I know that you would be rather be in your own home. I understand that and I know how sad you are about that. What can we do to make this easier for both of us?”

    I think it’s very difficult when you can’t fix a situation. It’s okay that you can’t really fix her sadness. We all would be sad if we couldn’t go home–it’s a natural reaction. Maybe giving her sadness room would help.

    If you are really concerned that the sadness is more like depression, you also could speak with her doctor about treatment options.

    I hope it felt better to write this out. It’s a hard situation. You can never be fully prepared for just how hard it is.

    June 8: I walked 2 1/2 miles and did Day 6 of the 30-Day Ab Challenge.
    June 9: I walked 3 miles a did Day 7 of the 30-day Ab Challenge.

    I think I messed up my Ab Challenge. I somehow skipped Day 5. :) I think I will do Day 7 again tomorrow.
