I'm dog tired!

Hi Dear Ones! Just wanted you to know I won't be posting for a few days! I'm tired! Dog Tired! I know I haven't been good the last couple of days getting back to each of you who've commented to me on my blog. Forgive me and I will catch up soon.

Seems Mother has taken a few steps backwards in the past few days and again I'm not getting much sleep at night. I don't function very well without my little sleep.

Just know I love you all and I appreciate you and all of the comments you leave me. I'll be back in a few days.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :(

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

I'm So Tired

I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink,

I'm so tired, My mind is on the blink.

I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink, no, no, no.

I'm so tired, I don't know what to do,

I'm so tired, My mind is set on you.

I wonder should I call you but I know what you would do.

You say I'm putting you on,

But it's no joke,

It's doing me harm,

You know I can't sleep,

I can't stop my brain,

You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane,

You know I'd give you ev'rything I've got

For a little peace of mind.

I'm so tired I'm feeling so upset

Oooh, I'm so tired, I have another cigarette.

You say I'm putting you on, But it's no joke,

It's doing me harm,

You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain,

You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane,

You know I'd give you ev'rything I've got

For a little peace of mind.

I'd give you ev'rything I've got

For a little peace of mind.

I'd give you ev'rything I've got

For a little peace of mind

  15. My mother lived with us for a time when she was wheelchair bound and incontinent. In addition, she had Alzheimer's, and it was tough. When the doctor said she had to have 24/7 care, we placed her in a nursing home that was located close by. We visited her every single day.

    Ah, I know it's tough. I'll pray for you, your mother, and Mr. Precious.

  32. Oh, Shelia, I'm so sorry your dear Mom is not getting better as fast as we would like. Bless her heart...and yours too. Praying that she makes huge leaps forward in her recovery to make up for the steps back, and that you can get some rest and take care of yourself too. Visiting your blog is always a very bright moment in the day (or night). You bring sunshine to all of your blogging friends' lives. :-)

  48. My poor Sheila, It is so hard to be a caregiver. I took care of my mom and dad in their last days and I have never been so exhausted from it since. And I had four sisters to help. Just rest when you can and don't let yourself become ill. I know your mom is recovering from a broken bone and she will recover thank the good Lord.
    I hope my prayers will lift you up my dear sweet Sheila. Do not worry about posting at all. Take a well deserved break. Guilty feelings not allowed!!!

    Blessings and love...Jeanne

  73. Dear Shelia, I hope this finds your mom doing better. I hear you about "not functioning without sleep"---I don't need 8 hrs a night, but I must have at least 5!!! I know when my mom was ill and in the hospital and I was going for nearly 2 days at a time without sleep I was a basket case. Please know I'm keeping you and your mom in my thoughts and prayers. Dana

  85. I have worried about you. Caring for a sick loved one is one of the hardest jobs there is. You take care of you, or you'll be useless to your mother or anyone else. We'll "see" you when you're ready to come back. You and your mother are still in my prayers. laurie
