Rage and Respite

hill-74571_640I have not been on here in a while. I have been mentally and emotionally exhausted.

I had thought that the light at the end of the tunnel would appear in January it did not. A promised position for my husband did not go through so I still can't afford the assisted living facility that I wanted to place mom in. Being able to travel this summer fell through because of that, so everything I looked forward to at the end of 2014 didn't happen. That reminded me of why I stayed pessimistic for so long. If I don't  look forward to things changing as far as caregiving, I won't be disappointed.

Two good things, well three, have manifested themselves. My husband did get another job, not the one that would have put us out of debt, but it isn't bad. I start a really good job with a health start up in Mountain View next week. The salary is great and we will be able to get our old health coverage back that I missed so much. I can afford adult day care and I found a respite center that is close by. I wanted Mom gone altogether but some respite is better than none at all.

I'm thankful for my new grandbaby and my migraine headaches seem to be going away. For now I'll just be content with that.

I know you guys usually expect something funny from me. Lately my humor is so dark I don't want to scare you. lol
