Caregiver Burnout

Life lately has not been in my favour.

I am easily irritated, I feel like I was run over, eating unhealthy options like crazy, and I have not been taking care of my self. 

The boys try to help, but they are young, work, have school, and have a teenagers life. I hate asking them for a lot. This is my burden, not theirs.

I dont have family that live close by. Steve has his parents, but they are busy people.

I have been going to the gym. That and church are the only two things that I do for myself...but it isnt enough. 

I work non stop.

I need help, and have no idea where, or whom to go to. 

Sometimes I feel that Multiple Sclerosis will kill me before it kills Steve.

Barbie Birthday

I LOVE parties! I love planning them and watching them come into being. I love deciding on the decorations. I just love doing it all!

In high school I toiled with becoming an interior designer. When I plan a party, I feel like the old me is scratching the surface and kinda makes an appearance. It feels good.

Abby's party theme this year is Barbie/Hot pink and zebra stripes.

I had a table set up for beading necklaces and bracelets, a colouring table, and the kicker was a Barbie backdrop that the kids could dress up and pose in front of. 

It was a busy three hours, but tons of fun! 

We have already started planning next years party!
