Fighting to keep my head above water

Haven't been writing lately, as there has just been so much going on.  Hubby is basically doing NOTHING since I got back from my trip in August.  He is either sleeping, watching TV, or planted in front of the computer.  So I pretty much get to do it all.  It's all so depressing. 

Needless to say, "it" doesn't all get done, as I am also working, attempting to clean house and care for an elderly parent, regularly visiting another elderly family member, and also dealing with some garbage that an evil sister-in-law has created, which may or may not end up in court.  Stop the world already, I want to get off!  It would be so much better if I could at least sleep at night. 

One bright spot: I have finally gone kayaking a couple of times this week.  Could have spent the time doing something else that should have gotten done, but . . . I reveled in the peace of being out on the water.  Need to get out there again soon, as it is starting to get colder.  Now, if I could only kayak away from all my problems, I'd be all set!


  1. Yikes! sorry its been so difficult but happy you have had the chance to go kayaking!

    I so know what it is like to want a good night's sleep -- its so sad when we can't get it

    hang in there!

  2. Sorry to read you are overwhelmed with caregiving and doing it happy to read about the kayaking...good for you...GOOD FOR YOU! HUGS and LOVE

  3. Wow this describes my relationship with my Type 1 wife. I bought a kayak last summer in part to get away from her moodiness. I plan to keep on paddling away through these ice cold winter months. Not sure how much longer I can keep this up?

  4. Dear Anonymous,

    Good for you, that you got a kayak. It really does help! I don't paddle through the ice cold winter months around here . . . just too cold, and too much ice. BE CAREFUL about getting into a bad situation out on the water when it's cold. I ask myself almost every day how much longer I can keep this up. It is far from easy.

    Take care of yourself,
