Middle Georgia State University is an oasis for me. I jog here as often as possible.
No, I didn’t take this picture. But on my drive to Middle Georgia State, where I jog, there are cows to see.

Mom is with my sister in law for two and a half days, and the rest from caregiving is much appreciated.

I am extremely proud of my performance as a caregiver.

The average age of a caregiver for someone with cognitive disorders

My Google search found a few different answers.

Most are women and the average age, according to my search is anywhere from fifty to fifty five years old.

In October I will be seventy years old and have been with mom over four years.

I’ve been here, done the best I can and appreciate any and all of the help I have had.

This, for me, is tough duty.

I’m informing not complaining. Well maybe I am complaining a little bit. 🙂

It’s cloudy today, cooler than it has been and sprinkling rain.

I am a little tired today. More so than usual.

Here are a couple of pictures from my outing today.

About half of my miles were at mom’s and the rest at Middle Georgia State.

Mom is with my sister in law today. I will rest.

The three pictures above were taken today at Middle Georgia State University, Macon campus.

Mom walked a few minutes and decided it was to cool. She sat in the car and worked on crossword puzzles, as I jogged.

Remember, if you need information concerning Alzheimer’s, you may wanna take time to call 1.800.272.3900, anytime. The call will be answered by a trained counselor for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Knee jerk reaction

As for me, one of the reasons that others have confused me so much (sarcasm) is my ability to respond to stuff in an unthinking way.

I tend to do that instead of doing research. Gotta quit doing that.

It seems to me they breed mistrust or something . . .

News organizations cover their talks.

They speak of social distancing and wearing a mask when it can’t be done.

But some are being found in public not practicing social distancing or wearing a mask. Some of them get angry when confronted about such.

That makes me feel uneasy.

About conspiracy theories

I saw this referenced on a Facebook post this morning. It’s someone’s opinion.

Peaceful times seem rare

Caregiving keeps me on my toes. Mom is about six months away from being 92 years old.

In the past when rest has been needed my sister in law steps in. The virus changed stuff. Where would I go?

Peace is good stuff. Occasionally glimpses can be felt. Feels good.
