I am really stuck tonight. I wrote every day for a month. I often write on Tuesdays when the days are very full. Today I am on spring break. I just drove home from Iowa and have the house alone. ( My husband returns from a work trip tomorrow. ) The house is quiet and I have all the time I need or want but here I sit stuck.
I read a few posts on the Slice of Life site, I have looked through Ruth and Stacey’s book Day By Day thinking it would trigger some great thought I could write about, I just finished Because of Mr. Terupt (which is great by the way). Still stuck so I decided to just write about being stuck. I have gotten just these few words into my post and I know why I am just staring at my computer.
It is called tired and emotionally exhausted. As I said I have just driven home from Iowa (7 hours) but it was a trip to move my Mother on to a new floor in her care facility. I moved her into an area that is more restricted but will hopefully give her more care that she needs. The confusion and worry it caused her was hard to handle and concerns me. When supporting elderly parents you always wonder if you are doing the right thing.
I guess it is like teaching my high poverty students – I am always wondering if I am doing the right thing.
Tonight I am to tired to think about it. These are big thought for another day. Tonight I am going to crawl in bed and read at least for a few minutes.
