March 27

I knew that I needed a break.  I knew when I forgot Noodle on the couch for several hours, while we went out. Noodle has a depth perception problem and is afraid to jump off of the couch. I knew I needed respite  when I forgot the hard boiled egg that I was roasting for the Seder plate, in the micro wave. All of a sudden, my responsibilities are seeming overwhelming. I think , in part , because they are and it is catching up with me. I need to write about these feelings because I feel that I can be an advocate for the caregivers who are silently doing their caring. This is an experience that is only shared by a hard core group. We are in each other's shoes. If you are not in these shoes, I hope that you never are. I just thought  that I would tell you that.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
